My son and I sat outside and enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this Southwestern restaurant. The mahi mahi tacos were nice, perfect portion. The pork burrito was great, excellent pork and red sauce.

Went there for happy hour. Ate some chips and guacamole, appetizers--very good/very fresh. Drinks were strong--no cheating here.

As we walked around downtown, came upon this place as we checked out a couple spots that happened to be closed. ... what's this place about? Tequila and south west flare. Fish tacos yumm, and I had a spicy Margarita pretty darn good. Sooo, kinda glad the other place was closed. Give this place a visit next time your downtown... More

The Tex-Mex food served in this restaurant is simply outstanding. We have been there twice for dinner. Their tacos, elk chili, spare ribs, and other dishes are as good as we have ever had. The service was excellent as was the ambiance, with a relatively low noise level

Geronimo was pretty busy on a Sunday night before 6. We got a table for 5 and the waiter was decent. Half price drink special that day. Not your usual Mexican place. Variations of the usual. I had chicken and goat cheese with spinach on a pizza type crust. Chicken was a little dry, but overall tasty. Small salad decent.... More

We didn't plan to go to Geronimo. But the restaurant we planned for was closed. We had a wonderful branch in the patio. The service is very friendly. My favorite brunch cocktail is Cucumber Cooler.

I recommend coming in the evening and allowing them to make guacamole in front of you. The food is not perfect. But the best in the New Haven area. Always crowded. Make reservations.

Sat at the bar towards the end of happy hour. Had a good selection of drinks/food available for happy hour. Had the chips/salsa. Chips were good, but were not light/crispy like you find some places. For Dinner, had the flank steak. Cook just right.

What a great place!! A warm May dinner and we were seated on the open Patio/Porch. Service was friendly and just right fast, we didn't feel rushed. The food was just fantastic, the Burrito my husband had was very tasty and my Chili Rellanos (and you can't find that dish in very many Mexican restaurants—they had 3 kinds) was done... More
