Part of a business group of 40 people for working lunch. Was served a variety of some 12 dishes from the menu. They were very tasty and despite the large group were delivered very efficiently. The restaurant is nice and airy downstairs and there is an upstairs that can be set aside for groups with a bar on the upstairs... More

Being originally from Mexico Im hypercritical of Mexican restaurants in the US. Reposado is one I can recommend. Their Tequila and Mezcal list is amazing. Try their Tiradiro de Atun and the Ceviche as starters.

I like Reposado because it works for both super casual meetings with friends as well as a good place to meet for a business dinner. They handle groups very well and have a lot of good seating options. Plus the menu is interesting and tasty - not just another burrito joint!

Went with some colleagues to a small business dinner. Set menu was ok, but the meat was tough and the food was nothing particularly special - mass produced and nothing unique. Great service however and lovely staff. Worth a visit, but not worth the prices.

I'm sure this is a good restaurant. But possibly due to lack of communication with the staff, or my own misreading of the menu, I was served two dishes that I had to send back. I thought I understood what to expect, with my vast experience with restaurants, but apparently not! The huevos I ordered with mole sauce had 6... More

This was a great little place in downtown Palo Alto. It was bustling on a Thursday night though it was not overwhelming. Our starters were excellent and filling, which included the guacamole and some seriously great dates with chorizo. The meals were adequate though I did not find them especially unique - or above par. The restaurant is spacious with... More

Quite possibly the best casual Mexican restaurant I've ever been to! Sat at the bar, super friendly staff. Great selection of tequilas and mezcals. Had trouble deciding between all the delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts. Great meal! Would definitely return and highly recommend it if you're looking for delicious casual mexican food in a great atmosphere.

Okay, so, you get to see the beautiful people and experience the buzz of Silicone Valley's see and be seen. But $12 for tacos that on Middlefield cost $5 and are fresher, spicier, and more authentic? Leave the hype at home and go to anywhere on Middlefield in Redwood City for real Mexican. This place is seriously overrated.

The restaurant is large and wonderfully decorated. There are two levels to the restaurant and each has its own bar as well. The menu selection is not like a standard Mexican food restaurant, it is a lot more eclectic. The food I had was very good but was a little spicy for me which is not saying much since I... More
