My boyfriend and I decided to branch out from our favorite local sushi place and try Toro since we heard it was great. Considering that the place is so tiny, we expected the 45 minute wait we told it would be, however, 45 minutes slowly turned into an hour and then eventually into an hour and a half. After finally being seated, we waited another 10 minutes before our server approached our table (tiny place - how does that happen?), at which time we were served some awful tasting water and were told they had run out of wine glasses so we would have to wait to uncork our wine. Twenty five minutes after we sat we finally placed our order and got to pour our wine, although the waiting didn't stop there. By the time our first roll came out we were over half way done with our bottle, and each roll from there came out about every 15 minutes. We even made friends with the table of three next to us, who had waited so long that they had to make a run to the liquor store before their sushi even came out! Aside from the untimeliness of our visit though, I do have to say that the sushi was incredibly fresh and very delicious. We absolutely loved everything we tried and were impressed by the generous cuts of nigiri and sashimi. Also, I did run into the sushi chef on the way back from the bathroom and he apologized for the wait, claiming there were 2 things wrong with the rice last night (not sure I want to know after tasting the water). While I doubt we'll be back, I do recommend this place assuming that it could have been an off night.
Pros: Fresh Fish, Unique Rolls, Delicious Sushi
Cons: Long Waits, Service
