A word from Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine
Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We read many of the reviews & had a 'mixed feeling' about them, but decided to go with the positive reviews & give PB a try. Wow - we're we impressed. The food - & margaritas - we're fabulous! There were 5 of us & we all had different dishes - & they we're all yummy! (My girlfriend had the Paloma Pork dish & that got my top vote - but my 'house special enchiladas' was a close 2nd. We we're seated immediately & our server was there every step of the way (& also helped guide our decisions)! We ate outdoors on the patio & it was great ambience! Our group is CA based & we love Mex food - & we would all go back to PB in a heartbeat! Check it out - you'll b glad u did! Enjoy (Premium Margaritas so good u may need DD if u hv more than 2!)"

  • "I was excited to take my date to this place because he loves Mexican food. The hostess said she couldn't find my reservation after I showed her the confirmation and then I proceeded to wait 45 minutes before I was sat. The food came out quickly and the server was very pleasant. Food was ok, not amazing, but alright."

  • "First timers after hearing good things from an Austin friend. A little noisy, but most places are these days. Chips are substantial, thick, and tasty. Two salsas - fresh and roasted. They were OK, nothing special, but come on, folks! Salsa is not an expensive item, serve it in bowls that hold more than a couple of ounces! Your menu prices warrant it. Service was inattentive. Presentation below average and our food was barely warm when it came, and we ordered exactly as the menu offered - my wife: chicken molé enchilada $12, and me: spicy pork (too salty) $14. We were there on a Sat at 6pm. Would think the A team would've been present making it great. Too many Mexican food places to try (less expensive to boot) to go back twice to this one."

  • "I think the Queso has to be the best I have ever had! We were a party of 4 and all agreed. The flavors of the sauces were tremendous. I recommend the red snapper with the cilantro cream. Two had the Enchiladas Dimis (?sp) and loved the sauce on that as well. Reasonable prices. Overall Outstanding!"

  • "Macrina is an excellent server. Food was beautifully presented and arrived in timely fashion. Drinks done well. Mole enchiladas were pretty good. Shrimp tacos excellent. The beans (I know, just a side dish) are outstanding."

  • "Overall we were happy with our dining experience but I can't give it a five star rating. The food was warm at best. They did discount the bill to compensate which we appreciated."

  • "Paloma Blanca Restaurant came highly recommended to us as a good place to enjoy a delicious meal and one that offers many options for those who need to eat gluten-free. Our meals were delicious, and there were plenty of gluten-free options. The décor is attractive modern, noise level is average, and the service was a little bit slow, but we attributed that to the full house; it wasn't outrageously slow. We enjoyed our food very much and will probably return next time we're in San Antonio. One thing to note: the gluten-free menu is printed on dark green paper, and the font is small. The lighting in the restaurant was very dim, so we had a very hard time reading it. Bring a small flashlight, or use your phone's light to see it."

  • "The service was beyond excellent and the chips and salsa were excellent. The server was quick on his feet and not to mention very friendly and welcoming. My aunt said her food was delicious, I ordered the chicken pollo cilantro. Unfortunately, the taste was great but the food came out cold, I almost didn't eat it but I didn't want to ruin my aunts lunch so I sucked it up and ate it anyway with no complaints."

  • "Paloma Blanca never disappoints! GREAT atmosphere for friends gathering, dining, sipping EXCELLENT margaritas! my "divorced" enchiladas were very tasty, the skinny margaritas were good but I know next time I will stick with original margarita as I like the extra punch! I luv this place, really have nothing bad to say about any of it, you won't be disappointed if you want to dine in a really nice place in Alamo Heights."

  • "We ate here on Feb. 21, had reservations though I'm not sure they were needed as the couple in front of us in the line didn't have them and were seated immediately. The service was excellent, the food delicious. It was a birthday celebration, which we mentioned as the three of us sat down. A yummy slice of tres leeches cake was brought at the end, with a candle and about 4 of the waiters who sang "Happy Birthday" and it was IN TUNE!! It is a very bright sounding atmosphere, and was a bit too loud for my husband whose hearing is not what it used to be...other than that, it was a very good dining experience. Muy delicioso!"

  • "A very different tortilla soup... Basically you get to create your own version of tortilla soup. The waiter first brought chips and two different types of dipping salsa. When our dinner arrived, my soup tasted like chicken broth. the waiter was very busy so I couldn't ask him about the absence of flavor or chips. So I just added my own seasoning from the two salsas and crunched my own chips! All is well."

  • "I like the on-line reservation, on waiting and it was very convenient. The food and atmosphere was good but the service was a little slow, wasn't sure because how busy they were. We came as a separate couples but the waitress never asked if the check would be together or separate; we had to ask her to separate the check after she brought it to us all together."

  • "I was excited about splurging on somewhat pricey Mexican food. Paying a higher price, I expected better food and better service. Our waiter NEVER offered to refill our drink glasses throughout the night. Our waiter NEVER offered to bring us some more chips and salsa after we made it through the first serving. We ordered the shrimp fajitas, but received the works. It took a while, but eventually we got shrimp fajitas - except we were given beans made with pork and we had specified that we wanted to substitute the beans for the steamed vegetables. While we were waiting for the shrimp, the tortillas our waiter left on our table got cold. He didn't even offer to bring us fresh tortillas. He never apologized for his mistakes or lousy service."

  • "Staff is amazing. Food is delicious. My mother had the Chicken Flauta plate and loved that they were made large and crispy. I had the Green enchilada plate which were stuffed with yummy shredded chicken. The waiter was absolutely the best. So kind and upbeat. He and the rest of the staff surprise my mother with a birthday song and Tres Leches cake in honor of her big day. Very pleased overall. We will definitely return"
