Over priced and average

While the service is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is fun, the food is just not worth the money- bland and uninteresting. Good place for a get together over margaritas, but with so much good food in the area, why bother?

Quincy is just south of Boston, and generally the cuisine in Quincy is just south of Boston's quality as well. There are a handful of places that are not just "Quincy" good, but they are also "Boston" good. La Paloma is one of those places. La Paloma is in a strip of unassuming small restaurants that you would not think... More

I have been going to La Paloma for many years, but finally had enough today. The food is marginal, portions are not generous; the staff, especially the host, today was unprofessional (the host yelled at me today for holding the door open for my family who was taking longer than expected leaving the restaurant); the atmosphere lacks energy. One positive... More

La Paloma is always tasty, with good service, and a pleasant atmosphere. No bells and whistles if you're a true Mexican aficionado--but a reliably good meal when you're hungry for Spanish rice, refried beans, and chips and salsa! Prices are reasonable--come during weekday lunch for better deals.

There's no Tex/Mex here! The food is authentic Mexican with a very diverse menu! I'm partial to enchiladas so that's what I usually get. They also have great seafood dishes. On weekends there is often a guitarist for your enjoyment in the bar area. Prices are also reasonable and service is friendly and efficient. Sangria is delicious! I've been here... More

Food is excellent. Tried all Mexican food in a 30 mile radius and none compare. Prices are very reasonable and service is great.

I don't understand all the hype. I also am not a fan of restaurants in strip malls. But anyways, this place wasn't all that great. The restaurant could use a face-lift, both on the inside and out. Let's just say I didn't feel like I was in Mexico eating authentic cuisine. I felt like I was in Quincy, in a... More

We went to La Paloma on the spur of the moment one night after work. I've been several times before, and the food is always great. I tried the Enchiladas Verdes (might not have the exact right name, but it had verdes sauce) for the first time, and it was AMAZING! It was all I could do to keep my... More
