  • "Portland, Oregon ... here is where to go now. ... Chef John Gorham has created an environment that says, 'Sit, eat, pass this to your friend...'" -Bon Appetite Magazine, February 2008
  • Get the burger! I know it seems out of place in a tapas place, but it is exceptionally good. Maybe not on your first visit...but it just gives you another reason to come back!
  • Toro Bravo is about as Spanish as the French revolution, but this is damn good food. Get there right when it opens at five and be ready to fight for your spot. [Eater 38 Member]
  • You'll never forget your first French Kiss.
  • get the chicken liver mousse but you'll need extra toast.
  • Stylish spot for tapas, by the same owners of Tasty N' Sons.
  • I never knew dates wrapped in Bacon could taste so good!
  • Bacon wrapped dates = winning
  • Items to get: 1) Squash Dumplings 2)chicken + cashew meatballs 3) White Truffle Omelette.
  • Get the tasting menu, and prepare for this adventure into a realm of culinary wonders.
  • The tortilla has yet to be mentioned and is so underrated. Best dish ever the potatoes were cooked to soft and just melts in your mouth. Get it!!
  • Squid ink pasta = the best entree I have ever eaten
  • Get the noodles 10 con 10. You will not regret it!
  • Awesome dishes... Bites, tapas and larger main dishes. Empanadas were heavenly... So was the hand torn pasta!
  • No idea what the fuss is about. Seriously some of the worst tapas I've ever had. We had about 8 dishes between four people. The octopus was killer, but everything else was near inedible. Skip it.
  • $30 chef's tasting menu? Yes please!
  • French kiss = addictive
  • do the chefs choice, well worth it!
  • If you have to wait, you can wait in front or in their little cove and get served. They'll move you to a 'real' table (read: larger) if you want, but you get the same attention, service and food.
