“We literally spent the entire night here. Fab-u-lous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

So, a group of girlfriends and I had a college-reunion weekend in NYC in February. We were having so much fun catching up that we didn't want to waste time together sitting through a Broadway show, so we opted for a fun, memorable dinner experience instead. Toloache came up as a place to sate our craving for guacamole (with fruit, who knew?!)...that was the beginning of the end of our night. We spent the next 4-5 hours (I honestly lost track of how many minutes and margaritas we'd blown through) merrily eating and being attended to by very friendly wait-staff. The meal was fantastic--avocado fries, people, not to mention ceviche tasters, and some of the best Mexican I've ever had. We ended up shutting the restaurant down; the poor guys at to tell us at like 2-something in the morning to get going, but they did so by bringing us a complimentary platter of desserts. I am already planning my next visit--as you should be!!

“delicious margharitas & guacamole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

i go to Toloache every time i visit NYC. i love the guacamole- especially the spicy one and their standard margaritas. usually i fill up on that so my dinner selection is an appetizer, which is also very good.

prices are on the high side, but in keeping with NYC

“One of the best meals ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Don't really know where to start! This restaurant has excellent and helpful service. The drinks were amazing (mojito and margarita), nacho chips with fresh made guacamole was a real success and then came our main courses!! Suadero and quesadilla de pollo among others...everything tasted just divine! And the fact the restaurant was packed at all times pretty much speaks for itself! An absolute recommendation for excellent Mexican food!

“Unexpected pleasure just off Time Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

In a touristy area full of average overpriced eateries this is a real find. Great food, fun atmosphere and good service. We had the fruit guacamole, a salad, a quesadilla and the flan. I have also had their tacos. All delicious. The waitress made good recommendations. The restaurant is crowded and loud, but it is a lively environment. I have returned and will go again.
