Description: Located at 100 Chopin Plaza, Toro Toro is celebrated chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval's creative Pan-Latin interpretation of a contemporary steakhouse. This sophisticated and sexy concept is modeled after Sandoval's Dubai Toro Toro, which was named "Best Latin" and "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out. The restaurant's selection of meats, carved tableside rodizio-style, along with an array of small plates, composed main-plates and a la carte steaks draws foodies while Toro Toro's buzz-worthy bar, emphasizing Latin-inspired cocktails made with ultra-premium Latin spirits and a well-curated collection of fine wines from around the world, draws the cocktail crowd.

I was really expecting something wonderful from the reviews I read. But was disappointed. Not sure why it has such great ratings. We went on a Saturday night around 7 and there were about 6 or 7 tables filled. The appetizers or small plates were very good but the entrees were just OK. Would not go back. Sorry, I was hoping to love it!

Just had a fantastic night at Toro Toro. Food was exquisite and service was exceptional. It is definitely worth visiting if you want to enjoy a night out in Miami. And if you do, you must try their great small plates and the Tomahawk steak and the Churrasco skewer for two. Their wines are reasonably priced so don't be scared to try the manager's suggestion.

Outstanding, Beautiful, Utterly Terrific. Just a few words to describe my meal at Toro Toro. I can go on and on about the food and say things like: The octopus itself will single handedly be the best octopus you will ever put in your mouth and the lamb meatballs with slight Peruvian influence is a fun, upscale and most flavorful play on the traditional street food. If you don't try the Chilean Sea Bass you are doing yourself a disservice (the fish is truly the star of the plate and you will be dreaming of it for days after) and the quality of meat of the Tomahawk steak is of the highest!
But above all I need to address the service. ROBERT is the perfect combination of professional and fun. He took us on a culinary journey with great knowledge of the food and beverages while making us smile and laugh the entire. He truly took our experience over the top!
...Oh, and save room for dessert! La Bomba is not to me missed!

I am a Miami local and decided to try out Toro Toro after a couple of friends suggested the restaurant to me. It turned out to be an excellent experience.

My husband and I ate in the bar lounge, which has a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere (and is easier for me to run out and smoke a cigarette), but also has excellent service. Our waitress, Anais, was just so fun and full of personality. She suggested we try a number of small plates and share them, in order to have as many things as possible... my favorite were the lamb skewers and the grilled octopus! But my absolute favorite was the lamb rack.

It's also a great place to meet many of the downtown locals. I will definitely be back for more, and have suggested it to many friends as a great local dining experience.
