    My wife and I had dinner tonight at Tapa Toro which was wonderful. The Sangria was delicious, we had a pitcher of the classic red sangria and were tempted to order another. We had an assortment of tapas and each was delicious. A highlight was our server David C. He was very attentive, gave us great recommendations and made sure we were enjoying our dinner, best of all it was genuine!. We are looking forward to going back.

    Tapa ToroResponded on 28 November 2022Hi Janine. We are sorry to hear that is how you feel about the Flamenco show. It is certainly tough to find a guitarist every night of the week. We do have a special show in October that includes one, though.

    This was my first time there and it was a really great experience. From our amazing sever, David to the food & drinks and then to the show. Everything was just great. The skirt steak I had was definitely one of the best with how tender and well seasoned it was. Definitely highly recommend visiting this restaurant at least once.

    The show started 20 minutes early so we almost missed it. Portion sizes of tapas are ALL over the place. Some you get a tiny amount and others are full-size app portions. We WAY over ordered and wasted a ton of food as a result. Need to use a more modern way to collect tips for the dancers. No one carries cash any more. Also, it would be nice if dancers could move around the restaurant some instead of just stationary on a square box.

    Tapa ToroResponded on 15 November 2022We apologize for the mix up in time. Yes, some tapas are indeed bigger than others. But anyone can always feel free to ask our servers about portion sizes, as they are very knowledgeable of the menu. The dancers do move around the restaurant at certain points in the show, but if there are not that many people they will stay on one side of the restaurant.

    We were a group of six at dinner and each couple ordered 3-4 appetizers plus a main course to share. The waiter stopped by and informed us that our mains would probably arrive before our appetizer which we were not happy with. As it turned out everything arrived at almost the same time which didn’t allow time to really enjoy each dish. As appetizers we ordered the mussels, croquettes, beet salad and a charcuterie board. Our favorites were the beet salad and the croquettes. As a main we shared a seafood paella which was just ok. Would I return, nah!

    Tapa ToroResponded on 10 November 2022We are definitely sorry to hear that the timing of the food was not correct. We have taken this feedback to our team to make sure they schedule arrival times correctly.

    This is a low brow restaurant with no understanding of what tapas means. The quality of the food was poor, putting out big portions is no excuse to avoid quality. The squid was so bad that we had to send it back; I am sure that it was at least two days old. A Caesar Salad does not have mixed leaves: it is made with Romain Lettuce and has shavings of Parmesan not shredded cheese. Will never go back.

    Tapa ToroResponded on 10 November 2022We are so sorry to hear that you feel this way about our food as we strive to provide good quality food to all. We are taking the feedback to discuss with our team.

    Rated ambience as 3 stars due to excessively loud music which is not conducive for family or even date night. Highly recommend they lower the volume of the music. On the hand flamenco show was enjoyable and family friendly. The server was attentive and pleasant. Sampled the ceviche and lamb sliders and would order them again. If you like heat in your ceviche ask they add jalapeños.

    We had dinner with a large party. The restaurant was pretty dead (Monday night), but the food and bar service was slow. Some of the menu is tapas, and some entree meals. Nothing was timed. Many of us were done eating before the paella entrees came out. Sangria flight was very disappointing. Some of the food was flavorless including beet salad and Brussels sprouts. Paella was just ok. Salmon wasn't pink in color. Skirt steak with chimichurri was good. All desserts were good. Overall, just disappointing. Won't go back.

    Our shrimp and fish ceviche were outstanding. My in-laws enjoyed their respective Salmon dishes. My wife enjoyed her seafood paella. I was delighted with my lean skirt steak. I also enjoyed the best ever 3 leches dessert. My mother-in-law and my wife got the churros for dessert. We agreed it needs lots of improvement. The Flamenco Dancers were good but oddly some of the accompanying music was not genuine Palos.
