Fab & fun atmosphere. Excellent food.
Wonderful dinner with my one love. I always steer clear of fish tacos, but not on this night. I would go back just for them. Hearty filling and freshly batter white fish. Delicious
My wife and I went for a Valentine's dinner before a concert. Casa Romero had a special, limited Valentine's Day menu for that evening. As a result, we picked dishes we hadn't eaten before ... but which we enjoyed very much. So this was a good experience for us. Early in the meal, a glass slipped out of my hand threatening to flood my wife. A server who wasn't ours leapt to the rescue and no one got a drop on her or him. Thank you, unnamed server!!! We have been eating at Casa Romero for over 35 years, and I'm sure we'll continue to do so ... especially for Valentine's Day!
We live in the neighborhood and often go to Casa Romero. I love Mexican food and my husband has come to appreciate it also, because of the high quality of the food, the great service and charming atmosphere. We have never been disappointed in our choices from the menu or the bar.
A great experience, food was fresh and delicious. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. A couple of items were a bit pricey, but we're in Boston!
Love this charming, authentic Mexican restaurant hidden away off Gloucester St. The Carne Asada and the seafood enchiladas were outstanding, as were the “perfect” margaritas. Waiter had a bit of angrouchy attitude - I think he wasn’t happy working on a Monday night - but other than that the service was excellent. There was a very loud table across the small dining room who made conversation difficult at times - the place is intimate with lots of tile, so it can get noisy! (Looking forward to returning when patio is open in spring!)
We went for a girls weekend fortieth birthday celebration. Casa Romero was highly recommended to us. All of us enjoyed everything we ordered. We'll be back!
Great atmosphere and awesome servers! Food was good although seemed a bit processed rather than homemade , drinks were good. Fun ambiance! But bery very tight for space. Good value. We will return again!
Great food. Great service. Great value. Great tequila.
I’ve had much better casual Mexican food. It was fine just not that flavorful.
We always enjoy eating here when we are in town.
Great for cocktails and chips and dip. It’s super casual so not a upscale dining experience. You could tell that the ingredients in all the dishes were not fresh.
No puedo entender como una aplicacion de 5 estrellas acepta tener un lugar que no merece 1 sola estrella, es la peor experiencia que hemos tenido desde que tenemos l aplicacion, escribir que fueron groceros seria alagador!
Tenemos la referencia de un capitan-mesero dw nombre Ramon, un tipo desagradable, mal encarado, grosero y poco responsable!
La supuesta gerente de este lugar, no solo no nos recibio! Nos reclamo por llegar a las 9:00PM, hora de nuestra reserva, porque ellos cerraban a las 9:00PM, como era posible que llegaramos a esa hora!!!!!!!!!
Explicamos y mostramos nuestra reserva y se limito a decir que hablaria a Open Table para decirles que estaban mal!, que ese lugar cierra a las 9:00PM
Mi hija le respondio que ademas de nuestra reserva su letrero de la entrada especificaba que los dias Lunes el horario mostraba que cerraban a las 10PM.
La respuesta por demas irrespomsable fue que ese horario tambien estaaba mal, solo en el verano cerraban a las 10:00PM
Excusas mas absurdas y sin sentido no he escuchado jamas!
Esta supuesta gerente tenia apariencia de estar bajo influencia de alcohol,
Ooen Table app, tengan cuidado con los lugares que recomiemdan!
1 estrella para la app que es co-responsable de estas situaciones!
Wonderful as always! Look forward to returning!
We have been going to Casa Romero for almost thirty years; the restaurant has only gotten better. Its food is tasty and well-prepared; its servers are incredibly good-humored and patient; its ambience friendly and warm.
It was very expensive. $100 bucks for 2 people with tip. $50 each for lunch and we had no appetizers. Too expensive for the quality of food. Would not go back.
Mexican food very well made. New year menu was diverse and our choices were great. The huitlacoche tamale and the cucumber margarita deserves a special mention. Desserts were boring, mine was not good at all(caramel flan). Ambience is cute, but an extremely hot heater right by our table was not ok, to the point of me having to be concerned if it would melt my belonguings... i would return, but I wouldnt sit in that table again.
I rarely write restaurant reviews, but we went to Casa Romero on New Year's Eve and it was so exceptional I felt compelled to share. It is such a cozy setting, and really wonderfully decorated. The food was absolutely amazing and -- as vegetarians -- we felt there were good options for us. Our server was totally incredible and helpful with all of our questions. Delicious!!!
This was our third New Year's Eve spent at Casa Romero. We had a great time! This year was the liveliest of all three, I wonder if people are catching onto our new tradition... My boyfriend and I visit this restaurant 2-4x per year on average. Great food and margaritas!
Never disappoints! Best authentic margarita in town.
Average food at premium price. We were incredibly disappointed.
Food was excellent. Would highly recommend if you are looking for authentic food.
Food was lukewarm. So much for hot tamales... Mole actually shook like jello. I've never seen that before! Signature dish was gloppy, the pork was not tender, & there was nothing attractive about it. Had to look for the server twice. Construction was going on in the next room. My worst Mexican food experience ever, which was tough after driving for an hour & paying a fortune to park...
Excellent EVERY time we go there!!!!
We went on a Sunday. It must have been the chefs night off.
We love Casa Romero. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars for the service was that it was slower than usual. That wasn't a reflection on our server. She was great as were the bus people. Great margarita menu and the food was fantastic. Easily one of the best Mexican restaurants in the city.
This is a delightful space. We had lunch, so it was quieter than usual. I liked the fact that there were lunch options that were smaller and slightly less expensive than the regular menu. The food was all delicious. We’ll be back.
The taste is great!
Scrumptious food with great ambiance! Totally enjoyed the night!!
Casa Romero is an old standby for us. I’ve been going here for 30 years. The food is always solid. The service is excellent with knowledgeable waiters. The cocktails were outstanding . Always a favorite every season
Casa Romero was okay. It has an interesting food and drink menu, and gets some credit for showing that Mexican cuisine does not have to involve tacos and melted cheese. They do have plenty of margarita options, and the drinks were good. We also liked the chips, which were thick with a rich, earthy flavor, and the guacamole was a notch or two above average. Our dinners were inventive and tasty, a welcome break from the typical cantina fare.
I write that it was just okay because the servings were small, the service was slow, and everything cost about 15% more than it seemed like it should. It's not as though I would refuse to ever eat there again, just that given the choice of so many good options around Back Bay and the South End, it's unlikely to make it to the top of the preference list.
Food was very bland. Salsa versde didn't have much flavor. The refried beans were excellent. Very loud, we were pack in like sardines. Extremely over priced for the quality of the food.
Had dinner here with Business Associates. Fantastic service and everyone loved their meals.
Very good margaritas. Food was good if not great. Ambience was very nice and service friendly. A little pricey but if you’re in the mood for Mexican food in the Back Bay this is a good option
Food was excellent and the restaurant lovely ... staff is very competent could be a tiny bit friendlier. Overall experience excellent.
The food is always terrific. Our waitress, Beatrice, made the evening. She was attentive, fun and just a great personality. We live in the Back Bay and come often -'and will continue to do so.
I have been a regular at Casa Romero for the past 25 years. It is not just my favorite Mexican restaurant, it is my favorite overall. The food, service, atmosphere and staff are always outstanding. It’s fun to bring friends there for the first time and see how much they enjoy the experience.
Amazing service, great food and drinks. Staff is very friendly, menu is full of delicious options and cocktails are so good!
We had a wonderful time on my birthday Friday (11/16). We were treated with special care, especially by Nicole, or hostess, and Abner, our server. The food was just outstanding. We can't wait to come back the next time we are in Boston! Thank you!
Great place for a small gathering. Great menu. Good drinks. Friendly staff. I like to go when it is less crowded, but it's fine all the time.
