A regular "go to"

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

The newish spot doesn't do much right. Trying too hard, the dishes lack, most anything one might look for in a place called Reposado. The tequila offering isn't terrible, but pricey. They do have a very special Absinthe setup at the bar - the likes of which I have not seen before, but only have one or two absinthes on... More

Reposado is a lovely restaurant, with interesting decor, and inventive (but not weird) food, often an unusual spin on classics. BUT the place is horribly noisy. If you go there with two people, you'll have a hard time hearing each other talk. We would go there more often if this were not the case.

I've been here a number of times, both with family and with my team at work. This place serves wonderful Mexican food, and is a great place to be as well. I highly recommend the guacamole empanadas de camaron (shrimp empanadas) crepas con mariscos (fish crepes in blue corn tortillas) conchita pibil (braised pork) tres leches I plan to go... More

Second time dining at Reposado and I will surely return. Very good mexican food, somewhat expensive maybe, in a very nice venue. Always crowded and friendly atmosphere, professional staff. Bartenders delivers very nice drinks. Perfect for a larger party.

Stopped in for a night cap and sat at the bar and had some tuna and several shots of mescal with great service and product knowledge from an excellent Mexican waiter. An excellent experience.

Great food and service -- just what we wanted for a lazy Sunday brunch. Street parking is usually a problem but not so much on a Sunday morning.
