Doña Tomás is a special restaurant where you can feel like you're at a lively villa in Mexico enjoying fresh squeezed lime margaritas in the courtyard patio or dining on delicious Mexican cuisine in the main room or the crimson red bar room.


With our seasonally changing menu and our love and respect for Mexican food and culture, we strive to present a culinary experience highlighting our favorite dishes from Mexico. It is our goal to prepare these classics with the bounty of what is available in the Bay Area, serving them in a fun atmosphere where the energy is always exciting.


We pride ourselves on serving unusual and long forgotten dishes that we have tasted and recreated from our many journeys to Mexico.

Please go to our website donatomas.com for our current menu.
Our menu is predominately gluten free. We are a family friendly restaurant and we welcome well-behaved dogs on our patio.

We always love Dona Tomas. More creative and yummy than Tex-Mex, the food is terrific. The drinks are good and the atmosphere is warm and festive. Lovely people too!

Our food was delicious and the service was extremely friendly. The restaurant is a little dark and has a lot of hard surfaces. I wish it were just a little cozier but I loved the food and staff so I would definitely return.

We dined with an old friend. We brought our two young children and they were very accommodating by bringing out their meals immediately. We enjoyed the food and our evening very much. Great margaritas! We will definitely be back.

We have been going to Dona Tomas for many years, since soon after it opened. Always a good spot for flavorful mexican food. Great margaritas ("La Reina" and "Especial"). Always good service. We went this time to celebrate Valentines Day. By the way, if you like moles, they can't be beat!

We had a great time at Dona Tomas. The Carnitas were fabulous, and for cocktails, I highly recommend the El Matador. Spicy!
