“Delicious Modern Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Reposado is more of a fine dining / modern Mexican restaurant than what one would expect from traditional Mexican fare. I've been here several times -- the food is wonderful. I'm a big fan of the salmon yucatan, but have also enjoyed their specials. Great chips / salsa too! You can't go wrong eating here.

“Great high end Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Reposado has really good Mexican food, with an interesting menu that is more than the usual beans and enchiladas. Although you can get those too and they are good! The chips and guacamole are wonderful. Service is good and the restaurant has a big, open, airy feel.

“Excellent Mexican in Palo Alto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

I've eaten here a few times now and it has been consistently great. Authentic mexican cuisine in a lively setting with tasty margaritas -- doesn't get much better. One of my favorable dishes is the Housemade blue corn crepes filled with fresh crab, shrimp & red snapper, poblano cream sauce, jasmine rice with roasted corn. Try this, you will not be disappointed. I've also tried the short ribs and found them to be exceptional. This is a wonderful find in Palo Alto, just go here and know you will be getting authentic and tasty Mexican food.

“Solidly good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Margaritas were okay but not great (and I'm from San Antonio, so I know). Appetizers were excellent but main courses lacked that extra spark. Service quite good. Loud. Definitely popular.

“many good things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Excellent margarita, wonderful salmon (the special of the day), but disappointing ceviche. Service was excellent, we found the atmosphere a bit cold, but the restaurant was not full.
