Very regularly, and we try and hit new places. Obviously toro bravo is not “new” by any stretch of the imagination. It just took us a long time to get here. Wow, just wow. So we try to get there as close to 5pm as...More

My Spanish husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Toro Bravo. The cheese board was absolutely delicious and the paella was the closest paella to Spain that I’ve had in the U.S. The only disappointing thing is that this place does not take reservations....More

I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed in this place. It was good, but I think expectations were too high. First, they didn't have an IPA on tap, so I allowed the waiter to make a wine recommendation for me and he didn't nail...More

We had a delightful meal at Toro Bravo. The restaurant was crowded. They don't take reservations and the tables fill quickly but it is worth the wait. The server was friendly, professional and helpful answering questions and making suggestions. The menu contains way too many...More

We came here for a quiet meal with friends and were decidedly impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere. A lovely place for a good meal.
