Music was great but too loud. We have to yell at each other when we talk. Food and service was excellent. Nice ambience but the volume of the music did not do it justice

We waited forever until we were greeted by a server. And she mentioned that one of the servers in our area rolled her ankle so she is taking over, which is fine and I totally understand things like this happen but it would have been nice to be acknowledged so we weren’t sitting there forever waiting to know what is going on. The food was underwhelming and was I was expecting much better quality. Probably won’t be returning- definitely not worth the hype.

The restaurant itself and the food is amazing! The hostess was incredibly rude and the server had ZERO personality. We had a 5pm redervation and showed up at 4:59pm. She told us to go the the bar and get a drink as the table wasn’t ready. We did. We watched her sit 2 tables that arrived after us and when I asked she said our table was ready. She brought us to a high top by the bar and I told her I had reserved a standard table which there were many available and her response, “you’re more than happy to wait for a standard table. I only have high tops”. Then she made mattersworse by sitting us at 5:30 amd telling us there was an hour and a half Lilit per table. How rude

This was more like a club vibe restaurant versus a calm relaxing dinner.

Food: our food was okay not bad.

Noice: was super loud

Waiters: couldn’t get someone to help us with drinks after they served us food.

Drinks: drinks are expensive not that great however the presentation was amazing.

We had a good time. But, definitely wouldn’t return.

I am saddened to write this review since Toca Madera had AMAZING food and drinks. Unfortunately, their customer service was absolutely awful. Once we were seated, our waitress came to our table about 20 minutes after. Then when our waitress, Kendall, did come to our table, we ordered guacamole and water. Another 15 minutes pass and nothing came to our table. We had to flag her down (multiple times during our visit) to come to our table so we could re-order the guacamole and water, our drinks, and food. The drinks and food came out fairly quickly, which was awesome! But we still did NOT receive our guacamole after asking twice. My sprite had no syrup so I had asked our waitress for a new sprite which I never got back, so I was left without a beverage. I had ordered carne asada and did not receive a steak knife, which prompted me to ask our waitress for one. About 20 minutes later, I asked a bus boy (did not catch his name but he has a broken finger) for a sprite and steak knife. Not even 3 minutes later he came back with what I had asked for. He should have been our server instead because he was AWESOME!!! If he would’ve been the person to service our visit, I would give this place 5 stars. The food and drinks are great, but I will never return to this restaurant due to their horrible service.

This Place has the worst Service I’ve ever experienced in my life the guy at the door turned me and my family away at 1st he said we had wearing slippers . then I look around and I see a lot of people are in sneakers slippers flip-flops .So I said OK I think I know why he doesn’t want us to to eat here mind you we were beautiful dress it’s just that my husband had Bally slippers on and I had white beautiful sandals on . I think they turned us away because We had children and told us that we will have to sit outside. Can you believe this.Then I other guest pass us and they had on Flip-flops the black ones fur. Please beware this place is not Family welcoming.SHAME ON YOU

In town from Texas; celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. Service was great. We had already eaten dinner so we went for dessert instead. The churro ice cream sandwich was too die for. Definitely recommend if you visit Toca. The cocktails were pretty bomb as well.

The restaurant is beautiful. Food and service were ok. The worst part was the people. I know this is not the restaurant ‘a fault per se but we didn’t enjoy the experience because of that. Also, they were more into turning tables around than allowing customers to enjoy the experience. Wouldn’t go back and would not recommend it.

Although I had a reservation I still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Despite there being available tables in the front (outside), they sat me way in the back in a dark of the building. The table wasn’t set when I approached it and the waitress was halfway attentive throughout the night. The food was okay, small portion and overpriced.
