Just for a little perspective to start off I grew up in Texas. The food at this place is okay, which is saying a lot compared to a lot of Mexican restaurants in NYC. The prices however are absolutely outrageous. Sixteen bucks for a taco lunch plate with two tiny tacos. Four bucks for chips and salsa!? I would never come back here on that basis alone. The folks do not have their heads on straight.

I have eaten here many time, both much and dinner. I also love getting just a margarita from Dave at the bar (Wednesday and Thursday nights). I have taken many people here and everyone loves it. I have never had a bad experience. It is more expensive than most Mexican places in the city, but well worth it. The food is fantastic. This is go to midtown spot. You need a reservation if you want to eat pre-theatre, or just go after 8.

Mexican with a twist....Unique food combinations with lots of flavor. The service was excellent. They made a point to provide quick and efficient service in order to get us to the theatre in time. Water glasses were kept full and the staff and servers were very friendly and pleasant. A little pricey, but good food. Our only complaint - no complimentary chips and salsa. Great location if you're seeing Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre.

Love the fruit guacamole and chipotle guacamole. Truffle quesadilla is incredile. Enjoyed the cactus fries and desserts. Had a spicy cucumber drink that was a killer. Ambiance is great, not pretentious, but still upscale.

We were going to go to the Palm Restaurant across the street when we noticed Toloache. It looked good so we gave it a try. We obviously arrived at the pre-show dinner rush and the place was hopping. The front end was very friendly as was the bartender who gave us some inside info about the menu and advised us that the taco plates were small but the main entrees were good sized portions. After waiting about 25 mins for a table (we were told 5 mins) we were seated upstairs which is very nice. We ordered one bowl of traditional guacamole ($12.00 ouch!) but it was very good. I ordered the Carne Asada and it was honestly one of the best meals that I have ever had. I also had a side of Toloache corn on the cob ($5.00 ouch again!) My wife had the Camarones Toloache and she loved it. Our waiter was fantastic and attentive but did not hover over us at all. We were so full that we didn't have room for dessert. However; we got to talking with the waiter and we told him how great the meal was. Then he asked me if I had ever tried oaxacan style dried grasshoppers. Like most gringos I emphatically said "NO" but I would try them. The next thing I knew he brought me up a small bowl of smokey, lime seasoned dried grasshoppers. Much to the disgust of my wife I ate three but they were not that bad. Very strong flavor, crunchy texture and of course you have to get past the way they look. The waiter didn't charge me for the bowl of grasshoppers and seemed happy that I tried them. Anyway, it was an excellent dining experience with typical Manhattan / Broadway area prices.

Excellent inventive nuevo mexicano, but the place was overwhelmed with pre-dinner crowd and prices on the high side.

Last night was my first time at Toloache and I was absolutely blown away with the food! It was everything I expected from a Mexican restaurant. They have typical guacamole, quesadillas, and tacos but they are much lighter than other restaurants and their plates are arranged beautifully. I was happy to find the lobster tacos were as tender and flavorful as the description suggested. We will go back again soon and eat even more tacos!
