Came here with firends and collegues. Incredibly SLOW service on a Saturday night. Slow to seat (with reservations), slow to serve, slow to close. The food was good, but they should work to ballance the trendy, creative offerings with some oustanding traditional items. Again, good, but not great.

We ate dinner here on a saturday night. It was great to walk in to the place. It felt fresh, vibrant and seemed like a place to go on date nights. We had a light meal with sharing some small plates and had a few beers. It was ok but nothing special. In terms of food quality I can name... More

This is a Mexican fusion restaurant and not necessarily authentic Mexican. And that's why we go there, for the unique menu and delicious food. Our dinner this week didn't disappoint. The appetizers (ceviche, oysters, mixed seafood) and entrees (seafood crepes, pibil, seafood stew) were wonderful (as was the bread pudding dessert which we didn't think we could fit into our...

I love Reposado. It's noisy and busy, so be forewarned it's not the best place for a tete-a-tete. But the food is delicious and the service, attentive. The menu offers some traditional dishes, but also some really refreshing takes on standard offerings.

It may be a good restaurant for locals who don't know very much about Mexican food. Cappuccino was not hot neither was the cafe latte. Lunch special was ok. Ensalada betabel was described as serve with goat cheese instead it was given with Mexican fresh cheese. BIG DIFFERENCE IN FLAVOR. Black beans were flavorless and when brought to the attention...

This is a NICE, upscale restaurant...not your regular Mexican. Our waiter was super friendly and very attentive. The menu offered something for everyone, even a vegetarian. Our group of three were carnivores. We each ordered something different but gave a small portion to the others, allowing us to try 2 other entrees. My boss had the seafood crepes (delish), my...

Visited for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The waiter was terrific, friendly and helpful. It is not cheap - especially for lunch but I would go back. I had the chicken quesadilla which had a great flavor and was nicely cooked - probably in a skillet to get the hot crispness. The jicama side salad was delicious too. My colleagues... More

This is a nice restaurant in downtown Palo Alto. This is not a regular tex mex restaurant. It is nice, upscale and has a very unique menu for a mexican restaurant. We tried short ribs and enchiladas and both were delicious, well prepared and flavorful. Service was good and prompt. Ambience was casual, upscale. The restaurant fills up fast so... More

I have been a number of times and now always get the lunch special which changes frequently. Presentation is fabulous and portion sizes allow for an order of guacamole ahead of time. The place tends to fill quickly and does get noisy.
