Always a delight!
This is a favorite go-to restaurant. This time we brought out of town guests, and they also loved it. A little loud at peak times, but some seem to like that. For those who love Reposado, but maybe not as much noise, their lunches are fabulous, and (verify this) served until 4pm. Great food and setting, and always a treat!

Chile Poblano and chips, salsa,
Chile Poblano and chips, salsa, and guac were amazing. The plantain chips plain and boring.

Great vibe at Reposado! Went there to celebrate my daughters birthday with the fam and it was hoppin' at 6:45! Sat at the bar for a Margarita and had the pink tequila, which was surprisingly good. We had a second house margarita later and it was just average...
My husband and I decided to order lots of small plates rather than an entree and we were happy. The 4 Tacquitos and Tamales were to-die-for. Great flavors and moist and tender meats. Next time I would pass on the Carne Apache which sounded good but was pretty bland. My daughter got the pork chop and it was fabulous, too! All in all we loved it and will be back!

Happy Hour great, if you can sit.
The draw to Reposado is the Happy Hour. You need to make a reservation if you want to stay for dinner. We enjoyed the chips + guac, or scallops + shrimp appetizers. The margaritas are terrific! After the appetizers, we had salads for dinner. They were very good. Happy Hour on Friday is very popular, and if there is no space to sit down, both the patrons and wait staff can be a little snippy with the folks who are waiting. That's the only downside of Reposado.

Not your typical Mexican food
Not your typical Mexican food place. Great energy. Fresh and flavorful combinations.

Party of Three
Our waiter commented that our party of three ordered his three favorite entrees and when we got our food we had to believe his statement was true. The food was interesting, beautifully presented, .....perfect. We had the beef short ribs, the seafood crepes and the halibut which was especially outstanding.

noise vs great food
went to enjoy the great food...and it was; we would never go back at nite due to the horrific noise level.
brunch is a much better time to appreciate the chief's creations!!!

Fun, and Vegan Friendly
A loud but fun night with good food and excellent drinks. One of the few places in the area with excellent choices for parties with both carnivores and vegans.

Great Haute Mexican Cuisine
Reposado has a great menu of modern Mexican cuisine. For dinner we had the lobster entree served with paella and mussels top with the special house margarita made with agave nector and black berry juice, divine! Also, they have a wonerful happy hour from 4 - 6 pm with half price appetizers and discounted drinks. The interior is stylish and the atmosphere is fun and lively. It's like being on vacation in your hometown.

If you are tired of the old same, old same, here is a change with a very respectable menu of delicatessen. I would not rate the food out of this world in terms of taste, but I liked the combination of fresh ingredients and sauces. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! So flavorful and fresh!
We lucked out when we chose this spot for our one night in Palo Alto. This meal rivaled the fantastic ones we had in San Franciso and Sonoma. The basic Margaritas were great,made with fresh lime juice. The guacamole and Trioo de Ceviche were great with the chips and three salsas that came as a starter. Our fish dishes were fabulous. Go here!! I am sad that I live on the east coast and it will be awhile before I can return.

Great food but too noisy
Great food, good service, great decor. My only complaint is that the restaurant is WAY TOO NOISY. They should turn off the music and do whatever is possible to make it a little quieter.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, but loud
This giant Mexican restaurant in Palo Alto didn't disappoint, with big and tasty margaritas, and really excellent seasonal food. My only real complaint is that the cavernous space could use a little sound-proofing.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would have been all good... but
Did not get to feel the ambiance since we, in spite of my request online to not be at the back end of the restaurant, were seated as far back on the 2nd floor.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food/location,service adequate
This was my second trip here and both times I have really enjoyed the food and cocktails. Our service started off slow (thus the 3 stars) though it seemed to improve after our initial lengthy wait. It is very loud so probably not the place for a romantic dinner if that is what you are looking for. My only real complaint was that we were very much enjoying the open window we were seated next to, a party at an adjacent table was seated about half way through our meal and complained about the window being opened and the window was promptly shut without even asking us our preference.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bingo, it's the best in Palo Alto
We only discovered Reposado 3 months ago, and have been there 3 times! We live in San Jose, so it is not just around the corner. Fun atmosphere, great decor, delicious food.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food & service
Our group of 4 enjoyed dinner on a Friday night. Service was very attentive and unique menu offerings tasted wonderful. Challenging conversation due to "energetic" noise level. My ears were still ringing on the way home, but I would still come back. :)

Great Spot in PA!
This place was awesome- I'm so glad I listened to the reviews. We made reservations, and glad we did because at 9pm this place was packed. There's a good energy at the restaurant, and they had some of my favorite spanish music playing overhead - i kept interrupting the conversation with outbursts of "oh i love this song!' The food was really good - try the guacamole. It's delish. Service was great. We left full and satisfied. I'll be coming back :)
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun, refined Mexican food.
Fun place, great upscale Mexican food. Make sure to try a "Top Shelf Margarita".
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious but noisy
Food was good. We split the Ahi salad, and each had an order of the small tacos on the small plates, one vegetarian and the other the regular small tacos. We enjoyed each of the items although the salad could have had more Ahi. Since it wasn't enough to fill us up we decided to try the desserts and chose the chocolate cake and cheesecake. Both were very good and not too sweet. My only criticism of the place is the noise level. It's a very exuberant place and the acoustics are such that it makes conversation a bit difficult. If you know that going in, you're probably fine but if not, it can be somewhat annoying.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place but noisy
Love this place. Food are great, great cocktail! It's a bit noisy but very energetic. I love to go there with friends for some late night drink. Not good if you want a quite place to talk. Last time we were there with families and by 8pm it was too loud to hear each other we had to finish early and leave.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reposado is reliable and consistent at delivering a great dining experience in a very lively and upmarket atmosphere. It's always top of mind if I need to entertain out of town guests, have a business dinner or just meet some friends for a fun meal. Recommended.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had friends in town from Oregon, took them to Reposado for dinner. We all ha a great time. They loved the location and our food and service were great! Interesting take on Mexican....I love the seared Ahi!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
It took three tries, but I finally got an chance to dine here. On the weekends, you'll almost definitely need a reservation. The food and drinks are very good. The staff is very helpful. I'll be back.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Decent mexican food. Good
Decent mexican food. Good service. Atmosphere of a 5 star hotel. But why no taco/burritos?
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for a friend's birthday and they gave her a free dessert, great service, amazing food (I had the Salmon and it was so flavorful!). WIll definitely return!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mexican Updated gourmet
The ability of the kitchen to combine typical Mexican ingredients to new flavors and tastes was inspired. The sauces were delicious and especially a dish with blue corn tortillas (crepes) stuffed with fresh crab, fish and other things. Accompanied with rice, corn, and radish with some green that tasted delicious and the texture was new.

The food here has to be kept
The food here has to be kept in mind that we're talking about Palo Alto and not SF, but for PA it's great. There are a lot of really creative things here and it's all very very high quality. My fav is the bacon lobster. I've never had my 2 fav things mixed, which is weird as we think to do it with the scallop. All in all expensive, but great food.

Decent for an evening hangout
We went here for dinner on a weekday. We had made a reservation in advance. We got a little late and they were kind enough to accommodate us even then. Parking is not an issue at all and very conveniently located. Food is excellent. They have some interesting dishes on their menu. It is vegetarian friendly- a must for us. Service in my opinion was a little slow, but the staff is courteous. Our drinks, appetizers took a while to come to the table. On the good side, there's enough time to catch up on an interesting conversation.There was a long gap between the drinks and the dinner. Desserts again took a while. Noise levels are definitely on the higher side.
If I had to go back, I definitely would- for the food. Overall rating- Very Good.

Great place for good times
Came with my company VP and Director for a farewell dinner and had a great meal. Laughed, joked, and had a good time. The service was superb very reasonable prices. Worth every penny and second.

Pricy tapas restaurant
The food was very good, but nothing outstanding. The menu wasn't particularly impressive or original. The tapas are rather small and obviously pricey, since you need to order at least 3 to have a full meal just for one person.
I had the feeling the place is a bit complacent of its popularity and doesn't feel obliged to cuddle the customers. For instance it was unpleasant to be told that we had to order everything all at once since we were allowed to stay only for 1h15'. That's the opposite of how tapas are consumed in Spain, where instead they're considered as a way to relax over food with friends.

Don't miss passion fruit margaritas
Had a wonderful lunch at Reposado. Both of us had the street tacos (4 - carnitas, asada, chicken, and fish - each with its own sauce). Perfect for lunch, especially with one of their famous passion fruit margaritas. This cocktail is a little tart, not too sweet, very refreshing. Wish this was on the permanent cocktail menu! The service was excellent. We will be back!

Went on a date with a Foodie
Went on a date with a Foodie and we both enjoyed it. The Margaritas are out of this world, best I ever had! Everything was great can't complain. The server was knowledable and offered suggestions. I like that a lot.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a fun night, enjoyed the scene, the food and the margaritas!

Perfect experience, Great Veg. menu
We wanted to go to Palo Alto downtown for a family dinner and after having turned down by a few restaurants due to lack of availability of reservation at our desired time, my wife found Reposado on OpenTable and I am so glad she did!!
Our experience throughout was just perfect. Starting with the margaritas to the impressive list of small plate dishes on their menu and the service provided by our server, we couldn't have asked for a better dinner experience.
Some of the members in our party are preferred vegetarians and the restaurant offered a dedicated veg. menu to choose from. We ended up ordering a whole bunch of small plates from the menu and each dish was better than the other.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorites in Palo Alto!
Reposado is one of my favorite go-to places for business dinners in PA.
The food is diverse and delicious, modern Mexican. I frequently order the seafood crepes filled with fresh crabmeat, shrimp, and fish and covered with a delectable cream sauce. Yum!! Great and sizable margaritas, too!

A Restaurant with Great Food
Reposado simply has some of the best food that I've had anywhere. And I've eaten at a whole bunch of restaurants. The flavors are outstanding, and there the combination of flavors is even better. It's definitely one of the best restaurants in the South Bay Area.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
All was great EXCEPT I am 60 yrs old have traveled a fair amt. And have never paid 20.00 for a margarita!!! The waiter told us the speci al margarita of the night but did not tell us they were 20.00 each!! So 80.00 for four was a surprise. He may of mentioned the price along with the special. REposada is alittle full of itself this is not New York!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great restaurant !
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
All in all it was a fun place with good flavors. We were a group of four and ended up ordering a bunch of appetizers and made it a "tapas" style dinner. The only downside is some of their appetizers only came with 2 pieces for a pretty penny. I think a table of 4 should easily be able to share a single order and not have to double order to get 4 pieces. For example the dates only came with 2.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you Reposado!!!
Sunday night birthday dinner for 12 upstairs. Roy and his team did a supurb job of caring for our all our needs, from turning the music off upstairs to accomodating our orders. He paced the service perfectly. Everyone, without exception, enjoyed the food which included the crepes, short ribs, steak, salmon and scallops. Desserts were wonderful, especially the bananna upside-down cake.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and drinks.
Good service, interesting interior decorating, delicious food, and top notch cocktails make this a great place for a special occasion dinner with friends, family, or a loved one.

Need a Date and Good Food
Lovely food but very noisy. Wouldn't recommend it for group talking. Looked like a large pick-up scene at the bar!
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for birthday dinner with kids
We ate at Reposado for my husband's birthday dinner with our 9 and 11 year old sons and my mother. Everyone loved everything. Although they have a decent children's menu, my kids ate off the regular menu and were delighted. We all look forward to going back.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The margaritas were great and the dates wrapped in bacon were to die for!

Took my son and his college
Took my son and his college friends for a Friday night dinner. Could only get a table at 6pm but it was already starting to get busy even then. Their marguerites and guacamole were very tasty and the bar filled up early. We had a hungry crowd so tried the guac, the mini tacos and the empanadas for appetizers. All were delicious but portions aren't particularly large so it can get pretty pricey though. We all had different entrees and again each was totally enjoyed. The service was attentive and the space has a great vibe with attractive contemporary decor. Because of the hard floors and high ceilings though, it can get a little loud. Nevertheless, we had a great evening and will definitely return.

Dinner on Theater Night
Chose Reposado for dinner before Theater Works and we all loved it. Early reservation, 5:00 pm, meant the ambiance was delightful, service was great and food excellent. We will return/
12/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun place, original food....
I love this place... great atmosphere and location! Very vibrant inside. The food is SO different and interesting... and TASTY! My favorite is the habanero margarita... SO good! HIghly recommend - we had a group of 5 - everyone ordered something different, and we all loved everything we received! Would go again in a heartbeat!

Can you quibble with perfection?
This was at least our 20th time to this culinary oasis and each time merely betters the previous visit. I know that this sounds like the raving of a lunatic, but is far from it. We come from a portion of the country where Mexican fare in all its possible guises reigns supreme and this gorgeous spot never misses. In fact, we recently spent our Thanksgiving Holiday here and plan to possibly do the same on 12/25. REPOSADO provides the opportunity to experience fine dining or a quasi-tapas meal with the offering of small, sharable plates. Please give this gem a try!
