The MSRP for Toyota OEM front pads is ~$50 for the set, the rotors are ~$100 each, and the rear shoes are ~$50 for a set. So the parts total is ~$300 to replace what you said. So they're charging about $400 for labor. That sounds very high. Even I could replace all that in an hour, maybe two, tops. With a typical shop rate of $90/hour, the labor should be $200 at most.
I agree with everything Mike G. said; get another shop to look at it before you commit.
And NEO is right about resurfacing the rotors, which should cost about $15 each. I'd be very surprised if there was not enough thickness left in them to do it.
So to answer your question, if Toyota OEM pads and shoes are used, and the rotors are resurfaced instead of replaced, the job should cost ~$230. $330 at most.
