Large attractively styled space with attentive servers. Can get loud when full. No usually no waiting for lunch, but make reservations for dinner. Enjoyed the Crepas con Mariscos (Two fat Enchiladas with red snapper, crab meat, and shrimp with a poblano cream sauce--spicy (just the right amount of heat) and unctuous. The crepes were stuffed with the seafood mix and... More

Reposado is very a very nice place to have lunch in downtown Palo Alto. It is nouveau Mexican with a sophisticated touch. I ordered the Carne a la parilla and enjoyed a delicious carne asada accompanied by diced tomatoes, cilantro and crumbled cheese and an exquisite whole chile relleno that melted in my mouth. I also found the prices to... More

This was my 2nd time back at Reposado, the first time being for dinner with friends. I can't say enough good things about the restaurant and staff. The menu is varied, the food combinations interesting & delicious, and the drinks menu extensive. Whether you're there for business, with friends or on a date night, you're in for a treat. Foodies...

This was a group business dinner. Very nice menu and very tasty food, although quite pricey. The environment is very noisy, so this is not the place for a quiet evening. Staff were friendly and efficient.

While the food definitley has a Mexican basis, it is far from Tex Mex. The dishes are well conceived, nicely flavored and well presented. The staff is friendly and usually efficient. The Happy Hour is a good deal and very popular. The only downside of this restaurant is that it can be noisy during very busy times, especially late in... More

The food at Reposado is consistently fresh and good. Our favorites are the Insalata Caesar, the Street Tacos and the Guacamole. My husband especially enjoys the ceviche (it's all good but the hamachi is outstanding). If you enjoy tequila, Reposado has a wide variety for you to try, and the bartenders enjoy telling you about them! The restaurant can be... More

We sat at the communal table because we didn't have a reservation and it was a Friday evening. We were waited on promptly and the food came out in a timely manner with good presentation. Our appetizer was the homemade guacamole, and we both ordered the street tacos with a side of rice. The tacos were delicious, and I'd eat... More

This is my third time dining here while on business in the area and each time we love this place. It has a vegetarian menu that has a few vegan options and they are excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal in this busy, modern, upscale Mexican restaurant.
