Took the family for dinner before a show at the Shubert. Our server was great. She took the time to explain the menu and suggested something's the kids would like. We had the table side guacamole which was super fresh and flavorful. The entrees were all very good. We will be back (without the kids) to sample the margaritas.

This was our first visit to Geronimo's. Kristin, our server, was very attentive. The tableside guacamole was outstanding (we ordered 3) and our dinner was awesome. We would definitely go back.

We had a great time at Geronimo. The tequila selection was something to see! Our server was awesome and really knew her stuff. The tuna taco was not what we expected but it was delicious. Junkyard frybread-YUM! We will definitely return with friends.

Festive atmosphere and great
Festive atmosphere and great fun. Best margaritas I've had in a long time. Really good guacamole, and a generous portion, too. All around, a good time. We'll return soon.

Stopped by prior to attending
Stopped by prior to attending Les Mis at the Schubert. It was warm enough to sit on the patio. Started with chips, dip and margerita's. Took our time, ordered dinner, relaxed - perfect. Service was friendly and attentive. Then saw a great show!

Geronimo-New Haven...TRY IT!
margaritas are outstanding and the table-side fresh made guacamole is the best around! Service was friendly and quick...thanks!

Truly wonderful birthday evening for all of us! We had a total of 12 people and the restaurant gave us a long family-style table which was a great accomodation, but.... th service was slow. Although our food came out in a decent amount of time, we had to keep flagging down the waitress every time we needed a drink, or wanted to order any part of our meal. She rarely came back to check on us. I understand it wa a Saturday night in a busy restaurant, but we got a table and made reservations for the purpose of not hving to wait by the bar for drink orders, etc.

Best Margaritas in New Haven
Had a great time with five friends for a birthday in New Haven on Saturday.

Excellent Food and Service
A group of friends and I had a wonderful dinner at Geronimo's on a recent Saturday night. We were a party of 8 and easily accommodated by the large restaurant in a lovely table by a back window. Our server was fantastic and the food was delivered at a perfect pace. Despite the restaurant being busy, we did not feel rushed. The tableside guacamole, tamales and fry bread were the biggest hits, but really everything we ordered was great. We finished the meal with several flights of tequila which was a lot of fun! Overall, a very good dining experience.

Had a great time, took my wife and kids here for her birthday. The menu had interesting twists on Southwestern fair, and everyone was happy with their choices, even my vegetarian daughter. The tequila menu is awe inspiring and the margaritas were great, though the unusual twists on a margarita (like the spicy blood orange) were much better than the classic, which was ordinary.

Big fan of Geronimo. Delicious food for a cheap price. The ambience is fantastic, but at night it can be crowded and cramped. Go for lunch or drinks!

South west fusion
The make at your table guacamole is a must way to start your dinner. The basic margaritas are great, but try one off the special list. The waitress was fabulous, ask for Alicia. She explained all the food and made suggestions of things to try. Finally the tequila list will keeps you coming back. The build your own tequila flights are a great way to start chipping away at all the varieties.

Fun, great food...
Loved the popcorn and fish tacos. We just happened to pick off of open table and it was great.

Great margaritas and ambience
The spicy passion fruit margarita was really good. I love the ambience.

Geronimo is a hotspot in New Haven. The food and drinks are delicious and the energy is always fantastic. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The table side guacamole is to die for. This place is such a great find.
8/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent Southwestern Food
More than just Mexican ! They really know how to prepare Southwestern cusine. Excellent guacamole. Margarita's were "inventive" but I didn't have one so I cannot comment on how they tasted. Minutes from Yale's campus. Reasonably prices. Will go again.

Thurs. night-The Joint Was Jumping
Don't know if it was the New Haven Jazz Festival or if Geronimo is always this festive, but it sure was bustling! Food is good and a great value. $15 for a huge tub of guac, made to order. (We like "no onions, spicy!") Clearly they make their $$ on the tequila. I've never seen such a long and specialized tequila list! Eat, drink and be merry! Geronimo is one fun venue!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service are vastly improved over what it was a few years ago. Excellent southwestern/Mexican choices.and great Margs.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Surprise in New Haven
Wonderful food, great atmosphere and an amazing selection of tequila. They even had really obscure tequilas in a variety of flavors. All in all, I would definitely eat here again. The best thing we ordered was the Chorizo and Fig Flat Bread (forget the actual name). Waitress recommended it and we thought it was amazing.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome front porch!
A great mix of southwest and funky with energetic staff that help explain some of the more exotic menu items. An iPod with pictures of all the menu items was also helpful. Can't wait to come back the next time I am in town!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, tequila & service
If you are a tequila lover, Geronimo's is the place for you. Start the night with a tequila flight which includes 3 shots of tequila, a margarita, and a tomato/lime juice refresher. The list of appetizers includes table side guacamole. We ordered quesadillas as entrees (steak, crab) and the ingredients were fresh and delicious. Full bar service can satisfy even the non-tequila drinkers and the atmosphere is fun and trendy, but comfortable. Service was excellent. Make sure to reserve ahead, especially if you want an outside table.

Great atmosphere, family oriented
Staff very knowledgeable about food content, patient and courteous . Manager even made an additional reservation 8 months in advance for future graduation plans.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a great venue for business lunch - excellent food and moderately priced. Wished it opened at 11:30 a.m. instead of 12 p.m.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great, but the different tequila drinks make the night. The spicey blood orange is the best. Definitely get the pitcher as you'll keep wanting more. This place gets extremely loud and a tight squeeze, but it's always a great night out.

Fun Night in New Haven
Great Southwestern Food! Love the soft tacos! The homemade guacamole can be made mild to spicy and is wonderful. Prices are very reasonable also. This is a lively place with a great outdoor patio to be enjoyed year round. Everyone we bring here cannot wait to come back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
lots of fun
geronimo has a really fun atmosphere, and is an upbeat dining experience! had to cut my burger in half to get a handle on it!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the visit.
The food was very tasty and the offerings were unique and original.. All the plates were generous except for the tacos.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
southwest in the northeast
As good as the best southwestern style cuisine found in New Mexico -- or better even. The menu is creative, varied, and has lots of vegetarian as well as conventional choices.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food experience but slow
Great native american indian decor, they had a spirit of the dead undercurrent
, very cool. Food prepared with precision and sophistication, staying true to theme. excellent presentation and taste but took longer than average and server not cognizant of lunch time constraint on two separate occasions. I hope to go back for diner and bring my wife who loves this style of cuisine more than me even though it's my ancestry ;-)
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful dinner with perfect drinks, friendly bar staff, hostess was so polite and accomodating, amazing meal with good portions for a reasonable price. Unique menu where I think I would come back soon to try many different things. Was my 1st time but I can see why my husband raves about it. One thing was the food was exceptionally spicy despite my liking spicy food, will just ask that be toned down, but again, lots of flavor so worth it.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Food,Great Service but very loud especially for a hearing aid.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loud, but great service!
Had a reservation for 6:15pm on a Friday night, did not realize how loud it would be! But they were nice enough to guide us to the back when we asked for a quieter table. At least we could hear each other back there. (maybe we just hit happy hour?)
Service was excellent, the waitstaff were very attentive without being overbearing.
Food was yummy, typical southwestern fare (nachos, tacos, quesadillas), nothing surprising but well seasoned and generous portions.
Would definitely be a great place if in the mood for bar crowd
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our favs
We love Geronimo's for Theatre nights even though we're older and this tends to be a younger crowd. Food is exceptional especially the tableside guacamole and the lobster mac and cheese. It's also great for lunch as I work nearby and they have great salads.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice night out. Had a reservation and was seated promptly. Service was very efficient. Food was very tasty. Priced right.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time there! Would go back.
This was my first time at Geronimo. The food was great. I had a portobello burrito that was outstanding - really! My husband had shrimp tamales that he loved. The food lived up to its reputation. There was a big crowd. Most of the restaurant was filled. It is loud in there, but it made for fun. If you want a quiet corner to dine in for some romantic evening, this is probably not the place (We still held hands across the table most of the evening and it was great). However, if you want delicious food, you should really consider Geronimo. The basement is a large cavern-like room that hold private parties. I went to see what it was like and the people invited me in to join them! The atmosphere is friendly. I will certainly go back
