Geronimo - New Haven

589 Reviews
$31 to $50
Southwest
The authentic Santa Fe cuisine on which Geronimo focuses is rooted in the traditional foods of the Apache and Navajo peoples, with some Spanish and Anglo-Saxon influences.

The bar, one of the largest and certainly the most unique in New Haven, offers over 400 types of tequila in addition to an extensive wine list and myriad top-shelf liquors. In winter, the expansive dining room, framed in slate and walnut complete with a leather wall, is warmed by an adobe fireplace (traditionally called a kiva). In the warmer months, the glass paneled wall, which offers a year-round view of Crown Street, opens up onto the largest patio bar and dining area in the region.

They run out of cod but they were nice trying to get a similar dish but with another fish.

We go to Geronimos for lunch every 3 weeks for lunch. This time we had to ask for a refill on chips 3 times for our guacamole which was a much smaller portion then usual. ( One of those times I had to go find my waiter because no one was checking on us and the restaurant was empty.)
We were very disappointed

I love this place. Whoever runs the kitchen really understands flavor pallets because their combinations are fantastic. And who doesn't love fresh table-side guac?! I'd eat here several times a week if I could.

We arrived 3 minutes late and the table was not ready. Had to wait 10 minutes on the sidewalk. The waiter was very busy so it took work to get him to service us properly. The lights are extremely dim so the pictures required flash and the people at the other table did not appreciate it.

The guac and chips are the best thing about this place. I've had dinner here before but the food was sub par at my most recent visit. The mac and cheese should not be served at this establishment, it was lack luster, plain and not on theme. Stick with the basics, don't get fancy.
