Average, bland, food; slow kitchen, and terrible, amateur server made latest visit our final visit. Better choices are everywhere in this city.

My go-to place for a leisurely and egg-ceptional weekend brunch. Elegant dining inside and relaxing dining outdoors on good weather days. If I had any complaints, it would be the service. It can be slow and waitstaff is not particularly friendly but the great food keeps me coming back, nonetheless.

Paloma Blanca is always fun. We go here for celebration dinners and just casual lunches. The bar area has nice seating and is festive. The food is wonderful. My favorite is the roasted pepper salsa and the shrimp quesidilla. They also have great soup. Francisco is so much fun as a waiter, we had a wonderful lunch there last week... More

Always a pleasure to stop in at this '09 eatery on Broadway with its cozy ambiance and delightful Mexican dishes. Love the restaurant semi-formal, well decorated interior with the ambiance of a cozy, comfortable neighborhood favorite. Almost friendly, but satisfactory service started us out with a flaming plate of queso fundido with shrimp slathered on fresh corn tortillas. Just stupendous!... More

It is authentic Mexican food and I lived in Mexico many years. I only tried the mole enchiladas but they were pretty good and came with "frijoles ahogados" (frijoles de olla) they way they would be served in México. The flan was good too. I think they cater a little to the tourists, which is understandable, maybe in presentation on... More

Went to Paloma's for lunch, seen the reviews for the food and margaritas so we were excited to try this restaurant. It's very nice, outside dining looked spacious and enjoyable, inside dining where we were seated was cramped and pretty noisy. Our server was friendly and fast. My $8.50 margarita was terrible, very watered down and not alot of taste... More

A regular I have never experienced such terrible service after ordering. The waiter forgot about us. He kept passing by us and saying one more minute. After half an hour and asking the manager another waiter took our order and served us.

We had dinner here. We ordered margaritas, I recommend paying to "upgrade" to the Cuervo version, it was worth the extra $2. We ordered large salads, they were fresh and very tasty. We ate outside and it was overall a delightful experience.

My husband and I met our son here for an early dinner. I can't remember our servers name, but he was very funny and accommodating. Their roasted salsa is fantastic!! My husband had to ask for more because he couldn't stop eating it. Everything that everyone ordered was tasty and came out in a timely manner. The cocktails are very... More

Had dinner at this locale with my family on a weekend. Food is great and very knowledgeable staff. Mixed drinks are ok, and tequila shots a little overpriced. Possibly new bar tenders would help and the staff is a little slow.
