After 40 years, my customers still tell me what a delightful discovery it is to step out of a Boston alley and into the heart of Mexico. That is exactly what I had envisioned when I decorated the coffered door and walls of my restaurant with the bright Talavera tiles from Puebla, Mexico. Casa Romero is located in the midst of glamorous Back Bay at 30 Gloucester and offers the best traditional Mexican food in Boston.

Delicious authentic Mexican food in the heart of Back Bay, if you're looking for a delicious Mexican meal with the right amount of spice and flavor, Casa Romero truly delivers. It's a bit pricey but worth it for the quality of food you get.

Great ambiance. The food prep has changed but the prices haven’t! Fresh ingredients no longer are used in the signature pork dish, and it’s just not worth the $25 price tag.

Definitely a gem in the Back Bay. If you are looking for good Mexican-style food, this is a great choice. Make a reservation, because it is usually busy for dinner.

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.

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!)

The service was slow. You could have a conversation because it was so loud. The tables and chairs were too close together. The food tasted as if was left under a hot light for an hour. It was my birthday so I was very disappointed. The cocktails were the only saving grace.

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!
