Ok. So we started off on the wrong foot. The food order did not come in so they were short on the menu. Drove from the airport opposite RJ where I needed to go to try the place. Parking was lucky but you might need...More

My wife and I went to Toro Tapas Bar with some friend a couple of months ago and we did not have a good experience with our drinks, food or the service. But being the positive thinking people that we are we thought that we...More

Wanted to like this place so much. Menu showed promise. But even with the value that a Groupon provided - we just found most of the food boring and executed in a very mundane way. There are better tapas choices in Buffalo for the money

Love sharing tapas with my family here. Glass of wine, 2-4 orders to share and of course dessert! Spicy shrimp is great! Roasted lamb and they have specials. If you like tapas, you will want to visit Toro in Buffalo on Elmwood.

My husband and I visited here tonight and made a reservation ahead of time, which was good, as they were very busy. The service was good and there were some interesting items on the menu. However, we noticed their "signature" dish was paella, so we...More

This was our first visit to a tapas bar/restaurant & we expected much more. I thought "tapas" meant large portions to share but these portions were barely enough for one person let alone the table (all four of us). We tried the bison quesidillas &...More
