Such a great experience. They had a little problem with the kitchen which I found to be out of their control. Over all everyone was so awesome. I would go again!

Its a step up from an average restaurant experience in the west side. Food is tasty but priced upscale. Ambiance is pretty. Minus 1 star for lacking soul

The price for the quality of the food and amount was not there. I am used to high dinning so it’s not the problem of paying the price, but really not seeing the value.

We were seated in a separate room from the area that was fun and engaging. I feel that area should not have a wall or people with reservations should get to sit in the main dining room. Other than that, the service and food was great

Everything was amazing- from the bartender to the waitress- they made great recommendations and were very accommodating with food intolerances. I can not recommend this place enough. The food was very delicious! The ambiance, the DJ, the decor- everything was on point.

food was great. host was amazingly sweet. server was distant and zoned out. barely came over to us unless we called him. gave me a bit of an eye roll when asked to switch my drink. i ordered a cocktail from the menu that was mostly pineapple, coconut water and tequila, but when i tried it, it tasted like a full on horchata. i explained that and he seemed bothered and told me it will taste like that no matter what. He could have just switched my drink. Did not bring our food out together, all of us had our dinner at different times. Other than that food was great, atmosphere great.

Love the food and atmosphere, but ask ahead of time not to sit under speakers - multiple tables were basically yelling at each other the entire time or just gave up and stopped taking

Some of the most personable service I’ve experienced in LA. The morning hostess and our server, Whitney, were awesome. Excited for the concept to open in Scottsdale.

Nice place! Good ambience. food comes in small portions -prices are not worth the amount of food given. Still great for bdays or special occasions. Great place to socialize.

Went to Toca Madera with two of my friends for happy hour. Enjoyed the food and drinks, however, our waitress seemed annoyed the entire time and wasn’t friendly. We were not pleased with the service, but besides that, we enjoyed our night here.

I was sat at a small table in the bar area. I had wanted and asked to sit in the main dinning room. I would still go again, but my overall experience would have been much better if we were in the dinning room.

Very nice place if you are looking to drink and eat. Too loud if are just want to have dinner. Specially if you are seated around the bar. We made an appointment that were I was seated. The air conditioning was dripping water all through the dinner. I would go again for drinks but not for dinner. Drinks and service at the bar was excellent.
