those are most likely posted by people who enjoy eating a burrito off the Tacoria on wheels, with the salsa coming in a little plastic container on the side. This isn't Mexican "comfort food" .... it's a culinary experience in a modern upscale environment. Rated No 6 among 300+ restaurants in... read more

friends brought me here, and I am glad they did. Started off with amazing guacamole and mini tostadas, then went on to an entree of a Salmon dish. Everything was amazing. The margaritas are great! A little pricey, but the food and service was great.

I believe Palo Alto has better Italian restaurants. But I loved the ambience of this place. The portions were small and less tastier than most other places I have visited in Palo Alto.

Get the chips and guac; great salsa too. The salads were decent, if a bit over-dressed. Mole is the best choice among entrees.

I never thought I'd eat Mexican Fusion food. Having spent a lot of time in South America I was very excited to see some long lost friends on the menu - pico de gallo, tamallito etc. And living in wine country in Stellenbosch I really appreciate French fusion cooking. These guys simply nailed the fusion Fusion. The place has a... More

We had a party of 9 including three non drinkers. We ordered a bunch of dishes that we were told were small shares plates and they were that, small plates you could share but they weren't share portions. I'm a seasoned diner yet the total bill of $450 shocked me since 2 of the 9 were kids. The bill was... More

This restaurant is way overpriced for what you get, but still very popular. The bar is a nice place to hang out.

I could eat a meal of just the appetizers - they are fresh and light combinations that are satisfying. My faves are the "street tacos", the ceviche and I love the guacamole with serrano chili instead of jalapeno. Yum! Service is attentive and unobtrusive. Do be prepared to yell your conversation over the loud din of other happy diners.

I enjoy every trip to Reposado. This take my girlfriend and I split the shrimp empañadas, she had the crab crepes (always amazing) and I had a very delicious hanger steak which was very juicy and tender. I washed it down with a spicy picante margarita. There was a 45 minute wait around 7:30 on a Tuesday but they fit... More

The food was quite good and the open, airy feel of the restaurant added to the positive vibe. Tables are too close together and one hears all conversations at nearby tables.
