I felt that we were seated at the most inconvenient table right next to the server corner, the lighting was extremely harsh where we sat, the server took 20 minutes to pour us our beverage and greet us. Despite making our own request, they were all disregarded

Not impressed by food. Ordered special seafood risotto and steak after. Was not impressed by taste and small size of risotto. Too overpriced. Meat was also too far from perfect. Definitely not coming back

We had the salumi, braised rabbit pasta, fusilli, and sea bass. Together with the amuse-bouche and the final treats, everything was delicious. I am always especially pleased by surprising tastes, and the chef didn’t disappoint. I would highly recommend.

It was disappointing that from where I was, it appears that my table is the only table that needed reminders to fill my mimosa. Where the two tables beside me did not need reminders, or even the tables in front of me. Also, for my reservation, I made it very clear that it was for my bf’s bday. After the two tables beside me got their bday cake, I had to remind the servers once again, that we are celebrating my bf’s bday in order for us to get his bday cake. Must I also add that the table next to us got a cake and maccrons, when we only got the cake. It might have to due my athletic background, but I was over all disappointed with my service. As much as I want to recommend this place for brunch, but over all I was disappointed with the service I received.

We came for dinner for my friends birthday. The service was excellent, great choices of dish on the menu, great choices of beverages and the ambiance is excellent. I love the bottle of prosecco with dozen of oysters for $55. It was the best deal in town. I love everything about Toca. We will be back soon. Thank you for our server Felix and everyone. It was a great experience indeed.

A wonderful brunch. I only wished that there were more bread/bun choices. Then again, who needs bread. Also, it would have been nice to have hot, melted butter for the lobster meat.

Otherwise the experience was 5-star. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The water and mimosa glasses were regularly topped up. The desserts were awesome.

I enjoyed 6+ plates of surf, turf, vegetables, and desserts from the BRUNCH-BUFFET. There were no holes in their game. Good quality and value across the board. Not to mention the mimosas and espressos.

I went to TOCA for the first time for Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend. I was pleasantly surprised with the ambiance and the presentation of the restaurant. We had a set menu and plenty menu choices for our meals. First off our waitress was amazing (8:30 reservation) she went above and beyond to make sure our night was special. She was very attentive and made sure we were happy and satisfied with our meals. We had a tour of the cheese cave it was really cool and informative. The food is excellent we left feeling full and satisfied with our meal. I got the beef main and my boyfriend got the lamb, cooked well and delicious. We enjoyed the other courses as well and the extra touches. Thank You again to the staff for the lovely treatment the restaurant was amazing and we look forward to dining here again.

Toca was recommended to us by a friend, and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed a fine lunch in pleasant surroundings, served by attentive but not intrusive wait staff. When so many restaurants are squeezing in as many tables as possible, the tables in Toca are generously spaced, allowing guests to enjoy a modicum of privacy. Lunch at Toca was a first-class experience in every way.

Went with a friend to TOCA for a winterlicious lunch and the restaurant’s ambiance and service itself was nice, however the food did not taste very good. The main that we both ordered was their gnocchi and it tasted like really soft rice cake. I don’t know how their other food tastes, but I wouldn’t recommend the winterlicious gnocchi.

Wasn't as good as I was suspecting. Burger was a bit dry, and you couldn't taste the cheese or garlic aioli on it. Dessert was almost the size of a macaron. The salad appetizer was alright, but nothing special. Service was just ok. Couple times where my water went empty and had to flag down the waiter. Didn't ask if we were paying all together and just dropped off the check without giving us the chance to ask for it split. Then left and had to wait for him to be around again to ask.
