Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.

I come regularly and always get slow service and I continue to give it another chance hoping maybe once, we get decent service. Never. By the time u get ur margarita on the rocks, its watered down and the salt on it is running down the glass. It wouldn't matter for a cheap margarita, but the margaritas are high priced.... More

We ordered the guacamole and fajitas through the Paleo menu. We asked for no salt, since we bring our own salt. The taste was great. We had no reaction to the food at all. The Plaintain chips were perfect and it was nice to eat "chips" and hot sauce with our meal. The waitstaff was very nice and attentive. The... More

My wife and I ate lunch at Paloma Blanca earlier this month and we both had great dining experiences. We opted to eat outside in the shade. The wait staff was attentive and helpful throughout our meal. My wife opted for the enchiladas de chipotle and I opted for the enchiladas de mole. Both our dishes were well prepared and... More

They have a separate gluten free menu and will bring you "celiac friendly" tortilla chips. I've been here twice and enjoyed the food both times. This last time I went they said what I ordered from the GF menu actually came already made with flour, which I think was a mistake, but I appreciated that they double checked for me.... More

Paloma Blanca is located in a small shopping center about 20 minutes from downtown. The restaurant interior is modern with a sizable patio available for exterior seating. Among our group of twelve, we had a large variety of appetizers and main dishes. The response to the food ranged from good to excellent. I had the La Paloma, a three item... More

Took my wife here for a lunch date. Great atmosphere, service was good but I just felt like it was over priced. $16-$17 for two enchiladas???? Come on. Margaritas were good and shockingly those were priced "okay" but I think there are many other restaurants in town where you can get better tasting food at a better price. We did... More

My fiance and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We had reservations so they sat us towards the back of the restaurant where it was a little quieter, which was nice. The hostesses were great (we had some issues with the cab driver who dropped us off so they made sure someone different picked us up). Our... More

Paloma Blanca is a wonderful restaurant to go to if you have Gluten Free needs. They bring out gf chips in a white porcelain bowl instead of a wooden bowl and gluten free corn tortillas in a red container instead of the same one that the flour tortillas come in to avoid cross contamination. I was very impressed with their... More

Wonderful food, exceptional service and lovely atmosphere are all to be had at Paloma Blanca. The food is not Tex-Mex but is upscale authentic food from Mexico. It is both well prepared and delicious. Extensive tequila options and wonderful cocktail menu. Our server provided us with a great experience from his food recommendations to his courteous and prompt service. There... More
