Electric atomosphere with memorable food

Tamales were among the best I've ever had. Equally excellent were the octopus cerviche and homemade ice cream.

Started with what was very likely the best Mescal Margarita I've ever had. It wasn't cheap but the quality of the ingredients was top-notch. Ice would just dilute it so I went without. The aperitivos we had were the freshly made GUACAMOLE made with Avocado, cilantro, lime juice, shallots, tomato, serrano chile, queso añejo served with freshly made chips and... More

We had 3 dishes and they were all VERY good. The chicken mole was outstanding. We also had the guacamole and the lamb shoulder. The atmosphere was very nice with high wooden ceilings and service was good too. Highly recommended and definitely a repeat.

Until 2013, this was one of the best places for dinner in Silicon Valley. Its 8 or 10 tables were (justifiably) hard to reserve, but worth it. Owner moved it to an even tinier 5 -6 tables around the corner and Don't know why. He was far better running a restaurant than selecting a successor because this bunch that took... More

While it's a great idea to have a great tequila bar and Mexican place in downtown PA, we left this place feeling more harried than happy. The bar and space are designed well for gathering around and seeing who is there, and the selections of margheritas and drinks is backed by a very complete tequila collection. But when we were...

Visited here while on business. I had the chicken mole and wow...it was one of the best I have had. Mole is tricky and u are never sure of what you might get - this was terrific. The guac and chips were solid. Had several appetizers that were just outstanding. Did I mention the Mole - it was money!

Reposada is a clear favorite of ours. This is in now way a typical Mexican restaurant. . Instead their dishes are uniquely "native" and exquisitely prepared, Flavors abound from a sophisticated kitchen you can look into. The ambience is modern but warm at the same time. We can't help going back!

We started with Silver Patron Tequila margaritas and they were very smooth and sweet. Yum! The guacamole was sprinkled with a bit of sharp cheese making it more delicious. That was followed by the Albondigas, spicey meat balls. Finally, we ordered the Lobster, sharing between two. I loved the ambience and vitality of the restaurant. We all seemed to have... More

Had dinner there on the recommendation of a friend. The menu had nice selections, the food was very good as was the service. Happening ambiance. Went there as a couple, would go back there with a group of friends.

We actually had reservations at Lure and Till, but while walking to dinner I caught a whiff of seemed to be freshly made tortilla chips. We cancelled reservations and went instead to Reposado. The restaurant is very lively and loud. Hard to carry a serious conversation, but after two margaritas it didn't matter. Menu is what I would call Nuevo... More
