This place is always full of people and radiating energy. Maybe because of great margaritas or outstanding food may have something to do with it. Like seafood crepes, special pork dish and my favorite beet salad with salmon. Chips and guacamole is a must get appetizer. Will never regret your visit, even with a tab on an expensive side. Enjoy!

I have been here several times for drinks upstairs. I always order the chips, but never food. However, I went once for the food and it was good. I would say there are better places for bang-for-your-buck, but the atmosphere is really nice if you want to mingle and meet people at the bar. The tequila drinks are good.

Restaurant has very high ceilings and can be very loud, especially near the long tables by the kitchen for large parties having cocktails. The food is okay, wouldn't call it the best I've eaten...but it sure is the priciest. They use good quality ingredients, but that's as far as I'll go. The food is okay, but very expensive. The flavor... More

Reposado has lots of room to accommodate groups of various sizes. Combine that with a buzzy atmosphere and a menu that mixes the more expected options for a Mexican restaurant with some really interesting dishes and you have a great destination to kick back with a small group and relax after a hard day's work!

Girl night out for twin birthday celebrations. This is waayyyyy beyond any typical Mexican cuisine you are accustomed to.  Imagine tastes from Baja California from appetizers to dinner entrees.  We enjoyed several seafood items all were full of robust flavors that were very complimentary to the sweet freshness of the seafood. Service excellence throughout the night. I highly recommend if... More

We had a very nice dinner in this restaurant. The atmosphere was good. Loved the decor. Not noisey but busy. Low key evening. I had the chicken mole with root vegetables. It was delicious. The other diner had a vegan dish which was delicious. Will be back next time in town.

The ranking on tripadvisor gives this place more credit than it deserves. The food is decent but not exceptional. It has fancy dishes that don't bring new tastes. The guacamole is good but then they try to be a bit too experimental with other Mexican staples that leave you underwhelmed . The layout is ok but lacks a bit of... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and were pleased with our choice! Cadillac margarita was one of the best I've ever had....great flavors, no "filler". The chips were warm, and salsa and guac both fresh and flavorful. We also enjoyed the street tacos (4 varieties are included)...deep, unique flavors in each. The shrimp quesadilla had a nice poblano flavor.... More
