Wow! The most energetic restaurant I've ever been to. Lines can be LONG. Get there 1/2 hour before opening if you want an early meal otherwise who knows! Food is amazing. Best paellas I've ever had. Both the traditional and the rabbit/snail. Best octopus too....More

The food is amazing, and the customer service was top notch. Went there for lunch but also think would be as good for dinner. Their menu was diverse and have a lot of interesting options.

Everything is wonderful. Must try not just the boquerones, mejillones, e gambas al ajillo, but especially the Maíz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija. Wonderful wine list with some rarer and spectacular selections.

We stumbled across Toro after a track meet at the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury, and it is amazing! Delicious food, great atmosphere, and the Jamón brought back fond memories of our recent trip to Spain. Would definitely recommend!!!
