Interesting cocktails andInteresting cocktails and very good food with a Mexican flair.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA real findDona Tomas may have the best food in the bay area! Very flavorful and originally conceived dishes and reasonable prices. Fun atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgood way to celebrate cinco de mayoDona Tomas was a fun place to go for Cinco de Mayo: festive atmosphere complete with mariachi band. Food is always delicious and margaritas the best.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNice time without the spiceI would say this is a very good restaurant. With 2 dining out it cost with tip $99. That's 2 entree's, and 4 margs. I was expecting some various salsa's but none really. For the fist time ever at a Mexican restaurant, I left with NO fire in my mouth.
The carnitas fell off the fork which was great but not that flavorful.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatDona Tomas is probably our favorite restaurant - it is always good, always fun, always good service.
While they are normally extremely friendly to this celiac girl's dietary restrictions, it's worth noting that they are NOT gluten-free friendly on the weekends b/c they fry churros in the morning for brunch and don't change the oil for the evening service. That said, I'm still happy with a margarita (or two) and the chicken lime soup.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSunny brunch with delicious food.I was looking for a place for brunch with an outdoor dining area. I was delighted to learn that Dona Tomas had a patio. My son and I enjoyed a delicious, sunny brunch, with coffee so good I didn't add the cream in sugar I always have with my coffee. This is our new favorite Sunday brunch spot for the summer.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to your establishment, and I was not disappointed. I love Xolo, and my experiences there made me want to try the mother ship. The food was delicious- much like the food I experienced in the Yukatan. Very fresh and not your typical Tex Mex. Our waitress was attentive and delightful. I enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard while we ate. Great experience!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough this restaurant canAlthough this restaurant can be a bit noisy, especially on a weekend night, it is well worth the discomfort. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. My husband and I were so tempted by the entrees that we decided to order three and take whatever we couldn't eat home with us! The carnitas are lean but surprisingly flavorful. Spooning them into a recently-made corn tortilla along with some beans was fabulous. The chile rellenos are made with very fresh poblano chiles, and stuffed with fresh peas and creamy cheese. Sounds a bit unusual but a melding of flavors that blended together beautifully. None of that deep fried relleno that you often get at many place. This is gourmet "mexican".4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten-free and fish optionsGluten-free BF and I, a pescatarian, enjoyed two flavorful meals on the back patio while sipping Happy Hour margaritas. Rainbow trout and sweet potato puree plus Mexican coleslaw were unique and plentiful. A real treat for two at $100.00 including tip when one's budget can handle it. Happy Hour until 6:30 p.m. Go early to the bar next door in order to avoid the long wait. Viva Dona Tomas!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat in the back room, andWe sat in the back room, and had a very pleasant experience.

Service was very attentive -- we came early.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and great service.Delicious food and great service. Loved the thin small handmade tortillas. The guacamole was a generous portion, brought out right away. If you like mole, the enchiladas are very well done, and served with potatoes and collards was an unusual and tasty twist.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mexican in the bay. 50%Best Mexican in the bay. 50% of the restaurant is outside for the rare warm bay evening.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDona Tomas Never DisappointsWe go to Dona Tomas at least once a week.

I ordered the Pescado de D.F., and it was cooked perfectly with a nice hint of lime. Our cocktails were on par with the food quality and very unique. Although the prices were a bit high for Mexican food, we were very satisfied with our restaurant choice.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
