We've been going here a few times a year since it opened over 10 years ago. You'll have a wait (unless you are able to make a reservation- those are somewhat restricted as it is mainly a walk-in place). Wait for a seat at the...More

We have been to Toro Bravo in the past and found it to be very good. A friend invited us for the tasting menu and we were blown away! I don’t know how many courses we had, but last night it included olive spheres, dates...More

Not only did we enjoy the food and the sherry, sitting on the kitchen counter was a treat to witness the smoothly choreographed move of the kitchen staff, and seeing all the dishes before they were whisked away to the customers. We saw how our...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

Wow! The food here is great. We did their tasting ($45/person) and completely underestimated how many dishes and how filling everything would be. They brought out so much food I can't even remember all the dishes. I know we started with the Spanish Kiss -...More

Have been here three times and the selection and quality are amazing. Try the Squid Ink Pasta for something different and delicious. Sit by the bar and watch the food being prepared. This is one of the loudest restaurants around, making it difficult to carry...More

Our Airbnb host recommended this awesome little spot to celebrate our sons 18th birthday. Fantastic! Start with the kisses. Single morsel amuse-bouches that are an utter delight. Other highlights were the peppers gratin, Moroccan lamb, steak slathered in olive oil. Awesome for dairy-free options as...More
