    When I arrived at 10:45 am for my reservation, I was told by the hostess that they didn’t open until 11:00 and they no longer served brunch on the weekends. This was a real disappointment since we have been coming to Paloma’s for years for the brunch on the first Saturday of each month. They did accommodate us at 11 with a table but the menu did not have any of the usual brunch items listed so we just ordered from I consider their regular menu. Now we will have to find a new restaurant to meet at on the first Saturday. Paloma’s is still one of my favorite restaurants but the loss of the brunch is disappointing. I wish they had sent out an email noting the cancellation of brunch. I am on their email list. Apparently, brunch was discontinued about two weeks ago according to our server.

    The food is always delicious and you just can’t beat the table-side guacamole. It’s just the best! The wait service is impeccable, friendly, attentive and not overbearing. Dining at Paloma Blanca is always a delight.

    Paloma Blanca never disappoints! The food was fantastic -- we had the enchiladas 09 and the enchiladas divorciadas. Both were very tasty and portion size was generous but not overwhelming.

    We have been going here for years but have noticed a slippage of quality. The ambiance and service continue to be good but the food isn't as spot on as it always was. Pollo Asado had tough overcooked chicken and skimpy dessicated mushrooms. The food was cool as well. That is a peeve of mine.when they tell you "be careful the plate is very hot", but the food is lukewarm. I realize restaurants are having staffing issues but this was very disappointing.

    I have been coming to Paloma Blanca & bringing family, friends & clients for over 16 years & never had a problem until last night. I made reservations on Open Table as I always do. I received a confirmation of my reservation from them at 1:36PM on Tuesday, 5/31/22. I always request a booth in the bar. When we arrived, I saw that 2 of the booths were occupied & the vacant one had a reserved sign on it. Of course, I assumed that was our table. Wrong! The hostesses who are always so kind said it wasn't ours. I explained that I had reservations. She went back & forth with the manager who said my reservation only said I wanted a booth "if possible" & that it didn't say that I specifically wanted a booth. Really? They went back again & came back saying they had only received my reservation 2 hours before. How can that be? I was upset & was going to leave when the man who normally takes care of me, Ramiro, stopped to say hello. We decided to stay & ordered drinks while we waited for a long time for a booth. It was worth it because the service by Ramiro was outstanding as always & the food was great. I was very disappointed by the way my reservation was handled. They didn't even offer to comp us drinks while we waited. That was very poor customer service. Since this has never happened before, I will just assume that it won't again.

    Made reservation for 230 PM on Sunday so a brunch option would be available. Party of two. They immediately seated us at a tiny table with two chairs even though regular size tables were going unused. I went through the hassle of reservations for this? Why do they have the small tables? Is that so they can cram more people in there at any given time and boost their bottom line? They're so tiny and very uncomfortable. Not all the dishware/glassware fit on the table properly. Service was slow, our waiter took his time attending to us. We ordered our main course which was the fish, he came back 10 mins later to tell us they were suddenly out of fish. Ordered the shrimp fajitas instead. We were not comp'd for the mix up, so naturally I took it out of his tip. The food was bland and unremarkable. The only thing that was of any note was the fire roasted salsa. Based on my experience of this horribly overrated, crowded and rip off of a restaurant I will never return to this place. Ever. I do not recommend.

    The service at this restaurant was some of the worst I've had in any restaurant anywhere. Everything we ordered, including drinks, was slow to come out - this was not a crazy busy night (not that Mondays typically are). The chorizo and cheese appetizer had no chorizo - and they couldn't be bothered to bring us plates to use. The main courses were flavorless mush. Don't waste your time.

    the hostess was very unfriendly, no smile and not welcoming at all. the server was not attentive and did not focus attention at us and only cared about the big, full table next to us. We asked for a container to get our food to go from a random work and when he returned, he stood at the patio doorway and reached out to us and made us get up and stretch out to reach container.

    Love the atmosphere of this place. The Margarita was the best I have had in ages and was a great value for the quality and size. Tortilla chips were crisp and appeared to be fresh made; salsa had a moderate amount of heat. The vegetarian fajitas were accompanied by soft corn masa tortillas. All very delicious, served at the perfect temperature. We were there about 5:30pm and the bar had a nice comfortable size group and the restaurant was already about 1/2 to 2/3 full and filled up quickly after we arrived. The recommendation that you make a reservation should be taken seriously.

    Food was good, more of the Tex Mex flare but there are a couple of authentic dishes on the menu. If you are looking for authentic Mexican this is both the place. Service was slow but the restaurant was busy and they were obviously short staff, our waiter was attentive when he at our table. He is was doing a good job under the circumstances. The place has a very nice patio and a great place to have drinks.
