Outdoors on lovely spring day.
First time there, it was just excellent. (We returned a week later and service was not quite as wonderful, but not really poor, just about average, mixed so far.) The food is fresh and presentation is great. We will definitely return. We love the outdoors area.

Lovely and Delish!
The mole(MO-lay)is delicious over enchies or over a chicken breast for dieters.(By the way, if you've never tried it, ask for a little sample to taste; they are happy to accommodate.) From the cheese and/or chicken enchies smothered in chile verde to the unique (unbreaded & baked not fried, so very healthy) vegetarian relleno smothered in salsa fresca, the food is fresh and delicious. The outdoors seating area is lovely. We have not eaten inside, but the decor looks very nice, although it can be somewhat noisy at popular times.

A bit noisy but we had asked
A bit noisy but we had asked for a table where we could talk and, for the most part, we could hear each other. The food was good and the service excellent. We will all go back.

The chili relleno, traditional style, was excellent and would order same again. Sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather with cold beer, fresh chips and 2 different kinds of salsas. Very good!

A Popular Spot
This was a business dinner with guests from India. We had a great time and our guests really enjoyed the food. Our waiter, Francisco, made the experience especially memorable. Good food, nice staff, and interesting people make this a top choice for Tex-Mex in San Antonio.

Great Food, too noisy
I took my elderly mother, middle-aged sister and her adult children. All of us found something that we could enjoy on the menu, even with some dietary restrictions. Everyone agreed the food was excellent. The menu descriptions were on target. Service was also good. The only significant negative was the noise. The lack of any noise-dampening features meant that conversation was difficult, and initially impossible for my elderly mother. However, once the dining room emptied, we could converse, but it was still limited. Outdoors was not an option because of the heat.

Choice Mexican Cuisine
Great food and drinks that will be my go to place even though it is at least a 20 minute drive from my house and I pass many opportunities for other Mexican dining in my neighborhood and along the way.

Ruth was amazing, my friend and I went for Happy hour and sat outside by the waterfall in order to feel private and giggle our ways through 4 margaritas over the course of 4 hours talking we decided to eat and loved the '09 enchiladas. Yum! I can't wait to go back with my Hubby. :)

That's the reason I tried it. Very pretty place, super server, Federico. Parking tight, but there is a lot nearby. I went early before crowded, 11:30 reservation. By 1p it was crowded and noisier, on a Saturday. Food was good, moderate portion, special price for three courses.

We were searching for authentic Mexican food, not tourist TexMex so read about Palona Blanco on Trip Advisor and gave it a try. We were not disappointed. For dinner the flavors were complex and savory. We asked for recommendations and appreciated Harry's advice, both for entree and the dessert, tres leches. We returned for lunch the next day and brought a friend! For dinner we were glad we had placed a reservation through Open Table as the table was ready when we arrived, walk ins were waiting 20 - 30 minutes. The temperature was nice too, it was scorching hot outside, nice inside - and I did NOT need to bring a sweater as in so many over air conditioned places.

We had stuffed pablano peppers and a side of chicken verdes enchiladas and everything was really good. The evening temperature was mild so we opted to eat on the patio which added to the enjoyment of the dinner. I would definitely recommend Paloma Blanca.

Excellent food, good service
Four long-time friends met for dinner in very pleasant setting with delicious food -- each of the 4 had a different selection. Receptionist and seating personnel were most accomodating to our needs. Waiters gave very nice service.
Our only complaint was the music on the PA system was too loud. We had to talk more loudly than we wanted, but it wasn't bad enough to complain at the time. It seems most restaurants now like to have a noisy atmosphere, but we find it unpleasant for normal conversations with friends.

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

Best Guacamole ever!
Ordered the guacamole appetizer made at table side. It was the best we had ever had! The addition of orange juice was an unexpected and delicious surprise.
