We had a delightful meal at Toro Bravo. The restaurant was crowded. They don't take reservations and the tables fill quickly but it is worth the wait. The server was friendly, professional and helpful answering questions and making suggestions. The menu contains way too many...More

Had the chef's menu and could not regret any of the choices. Went early to avoid the wait and it was so worthwhile. The value was excellent and the food was absolutely fantastic. Will go again if ever in Portland.
