About this place
Toro Bravo is a Spanish restaurant in NE Portland, Oregon created by restaurateur chef John Gorham. The menu of pinchos, tapas, charcuteria, and raciones changes daily based on seasonal variations, local farmers' produce, and the kitchen crew's inspiration, incorporating elements of modern technique and unexpected flavors into classic Spanish cuisine. The beverage program focuses on both the Pacific Northwest and Spain with wine, beer, imaginative cocktails and a large selection of sherry. The open dining room of wood and industrial accents and Sangria Red walls helps create the lively and vibrant atmosphere that has secured Toro Bravo as one of Portland’s favorite restaurants since opening in 2007. In 2013, Gorham released The Toro Bravo Cookbook brimming with irreverent stories and nearly one hundred recipes, which has since been venerated by chefs, home cooks, and national media alike.

Excellent food and atmosphere. No reservations. Always a wait. Go early and get a drink at Secret Society next door while you wait!
This is our favorite place for date nights. Expect a LONG wait (no reservations), but it's totally worth it. Have a drink at the Secret Society while you wait to be called.
Long time restaurant that has great tapas and The Secret Society above is a dark and romantic bar. Be careful of the absynthe.

“ One of the best breakfast/brunch/dinner spots in the neighborhood and an easy 15min walk. There is almost always a wait but it's quick... walk around the hood while your table awaits.”
