We enjoyed another delicious dinner at Dona Tomas. They change the menu up a little from time to time so it's always good to return and try something new. This time I had mole chicken enchiladas with plantains. It was delicious. I'll be back again soon.

We had a wonderful dinner here. It was fun to sit in a cozy corner by the window. The food was fantastic, and the service very good. It's easy to be enthusiastic about the excellent quality of this fine restaurant. Hope to go again sometime!

Every meal we have had here is divine. The menu is changed seasonally and all of the ingredients stand out because of their freshness. Love the mole chicken enchiladas and the pureed sweet potatoes are an absolute treat. Somehow the chefs even make the refried beans amazing - truly the best refried beans I've ever had. The carnitas are melt in your mouth moist. The carne asada is cooked perfectly. Try not to fill up on the yummy chips and salsa because the main dishes are large and you won't want to leave any on your plate. Great cocktails complement your meal. It is not inexpensive, but we think it is worth it!

Used to be a fan, own their cookbook. The staff have a lot of attitude , you'd think they were Le Bernadin !! When you treat your regular customers rudely... Bye. Try Tamarindo for a place owned and run by real Mexicans!!
