The ribeye steak was really amazing and it’s worthy. I like it a lot. Creme brûlée was nice and they will serve it on table as you can see they fired it a bit. Waiters can speak good English and they provide kind and warm service. In the end we are surprised to get a box of chocolate from the manager or supervisor not sure, we were delighted to have it. Highly recommend.

Arrive before 9 for attentive service i guess

Great steak—for the meat alone, a guaranteed good tine

Too many tables in a small place.
I basically dine with strangers. This is no place if one is looking for an intimate and relax dinner night.
Quality of food is ok, but expensive.

We had a rib eye and rack of lamb, done to perfection. No complaints on anything. Great food - good service. Comfortable setting. $150 for two up to triple that depending on what you order.

The quality of the steak in this restaurant is superb. If you are a meat lover then this is definitely worth the walk. It is very centrally located and has a lovely outside seating area, which is covered and heated so works well in any weather.
Service is friendly and fun, with a good mix of humour. Food was produced quickly and all parts were delicious.

The food was really excellent but the service very slow. I made a reservation for 9pm and did not get to my seat until 10pm. At one point we moved to a table and another waiter had directed others to the same table.

The restaurant was very noisy and crowded and pretty disorganised. I had an email afterwards about not arriving for my booking!!!

The food was outstanding but the rest was average.

Made reservation and they did not have a table for me but after 25 minutes got one to then wait another 30 minutes to get my order taken, not even got wine nor water while waiting...maybe because I was a foreigner not a local...but have to admit that when you do get server, food is fabulous and was worth the wait...but the service...only one waiter that night...

Very busy and popular restaurant so had to wait 5-minutes before being seated.
Food was excellent, although we ordered too much!
Starters of Crab cakes and Scallops were superb. Steaks cooked to perfection. I had Canadian fillet while my wife had Argentinian. Sides were okay, although wedges and steak chips were frozen McCains, which we found strange given the quality of the rest of the meal.
Our dinner came in at 180eu for 2x starters, 2x Steak mains, one cheese platter and 4x drinks.
Would recommend for those looking for a good steak.

One of the best steaks you’ll ever have! Trust the chef if he recommends a certain temperature for the cut! Great sides as well. Great service too! I will always spend a dinner here when I’m in town again soon.

Toro Dorado is a special restaurant in Amsterdam. From the moment you open the front door, the buzz of happy people chatting hits you and you know you’re in a friendly environment. All the staff know their products and can explain your entire meal in detail and they’re not wrong! Whenever I am in this beautiful city, I definitely make a reservation here and have never had a bad meal or experience. I highly recommend making a reservation and experiencing it for yourself - It’s fantastic!

We selected this restaurant because my grandchildren wanted a steak Christmas Eve dinner, traveling from Spain and New York. The crab cakes were the best I have had ever in a restaurant and the steaks lived up to our expectations. The wine selections great, service wonderful, and the restaurant had a great Christmas spirit.

Food was perfectly cooked and delicious and so fresh! Waitress seemed bored or annoyed with us. Which made it slightly less romantic for a birthday dinner abroad. But overall it was delightful for a reasonable price.

Een van de betere steakhouses waar ik ben geweest. Daarbij straalt het restaurant en haar inrichting rust uit, wat een welkome afwisseling is op de 'standaard' steakhouses. Dit merk je echter wel terug in de prijzen van het eten, maar goed een goed stuk vlees mag wat kosten.

To start with they forgot my crabcakes but when they brought them finally it was more like bread cakes with a little bit of crab dusted over the managers excuse was that I was from the United States and I'm used to chunky crabcakes. My wife's scallops were dry and tasteless the rice taste like sawdust. My steak was good but nothing to write home about

Once again i was not disappointed with my rib-eye it was as i expected tender and juicy. So a 'well done' for consistency. this is 2nd time in a week a have here and enjoyed every time. This time we took our neighbours, it was our turn and Jack was very complimentary about the quality of the meat and he should know he eats twice a week. The staff were excellent.

Nice selection of meat cuts at variable prices, although overall pricing on the higher side. Cooked well complimented with a good wine by the glass selection. Sides are average but that's not why you're there. A little bit of a squeeze outside which is OK depending on who's sat close by!!

Very disappointed unfortunately, visited to celebrate our anniversary while on holiday. Seated outside as a nice evening but tables very squashed together so felt like you were dining with a group of strangers. Waiting staff were pleasant but not very knowledgeable or attentive had to go and check how to make Irish coffee (was on menu) and stood chatting together near tables.
Selection of steaks was very good but a bit on the expensive side, have to say they were well cooked but choice of side dishes very poor and include McCain fries ( in a country known for its frites) ????? Not what you would expect along with you royal wagu steak.
Altogether a bit fur coat and no knickers

We needed something close by the hotel and this was right across the street. We were sat quickly and services was good. Large selection of different steaks from across the globe. Being from Texas it was a nice selection. We went with a Scottish filet and a Canadian Ribeye. Steaks were well prepared and had a good flavor. The Scottish filet by far was a better cut of meat.
