Geronimo - New Haven
The bar, one of the largest and certainly the most unique in New Haven, offers over 500 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.

delightful find in NEw Haven. Great guacamole and burritos! Nice ambiance
Lots of covid precautions. Staff so nice. Food delish.
I went in for my 10 pm reservation asked to be seated inside by the host because of the cold outdoor patio, was told they were no seat inside, a minute later a white couple was seated inside. I have been here before and my past experience was lovely but this experience was horrible.
Definitely the grilled chicken quesadilla, with the table order of salsa and guacamole
NIce heaters, great menu and drinks are amazing. We love this place!!
It was wonderful being on the patio on a crisp fall afternoon. The overhead heaters were wonderful and kept us comfortable. Great southwestern food and innovative drinks.
The food was amazing and the ambiance was great! The music was loud which in turn then the guests were trying to compete with the music. My only suggestion is to turn the music down a bit.
Service was great but servers perfume was overpowering.
While the food was good, the noise inside was deafening. Too many people too close together resulted in college girls screaming across the table at each other. I may try it again when it is less busy.
I have to say very disappointed with my veggie Chile the portion was very small
And I was starving . I expected it to Be hearty and full of veggies .
I will go back I work at a hotel downtown and send everyone to the
Restaurant I just think I ordered the wrong item . In the past very happy
My friend meals were tasty but the portions are very small need to fill up on the nacho’s or the drinks
Drinks were good but guacamole was not fresh. Overall not a good time
The service was pretty awful. I'm not exaggerating, it was 25 minutes before anyone came to the table. We got both rounds of drinks and water from the bartender. The food was good but the service was really disappointing. I'm wondering if it was because of Covid, maybe understaffed? The server was nice we just had to wait a long long time for everything.
Great food and service. The restaurant was VERY LOUD. It was hard to have a conversation.
It was my 2nd time here and I was on a 1st date, so it was important to have everything go right. It did !
Absolutely no complaints, quiet the opposite, it was perfect.
Not native to America and I found it odd that geronimos required a passport for proof of identification, when every other place in America allows driving licenses. I personally think that just reduces business because it’s not common to carry a passport and because of it you missed out on a couple hundred dollars because no one could get a drink. Casinos allow UK driving licenses so I just find it odd that a restaurant doesn’t. The member of staff that explained this to us was also very rude and spoke to us like we were children.
Authentic Mexican food, didn’t have to wait for our table in a busy Saturday night with our reservation
Food is very good. The service was also good.
A vibrant restaurant. Excellent food and service. Our waitperson, Morgan, was wonderful! Will definitely return but earlier in the day when it is less crowded and less noisy.
Love this place. Great food and drinks. Also love the ambiance. We sat outside and it was perfect with the heaters.
Really fun Mexican spot in downtown New Haven. The place has a nice outdoor space. Delicious Margeritas!. Both my and my wife's food was delicious and fresh. The guac was possibly the best I have ever had. Our server, Ari was incredibly efficient and informative, but she was also really charming and funny. Love this place.
As always food is perfect, ambiance is great! Love this place. Chef Franco is extraordinary
Great hostess - great waitress - well prepared food - amazing outdoor dining experience on patio
Overall the restaurant was great! Food was excellent, staff was helpful atmosphere was fun. Only 2 things I would caution people with: 1) even though I confirmed my reservation every time they texted/emailed me, they gave up my table when I showed up 10 minutes late due to difficulty finding parking. They were quite busy and they did still get us another table 10 minutes later, but I did find that kind of rude given how many times I confirmed the reservation 2) it was very busy and quite loud. Which is fine, but may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
Granted we went there on a Saturday night, so take these things with a grain of salt. Otherwise excellent and we would definitely go back, but when I return I will be more mindful to either go at a less busy time or plan to arrive early.
Amazing food! Especially the homemade guacamole!!!
Offended by request for printed menu. Vegetarian in party ordered mushroom burrito came out as pork. Had to wait for proper one. Party eating at different time. Pitcher of margaritas very good.
Very nice surprise for a last minute late night dinner. The food and service is very good, and the prices are reasonable. I’d definitely come back
My daughter and I came here many years ago and we’ve been looking forward to returning ever since, It did not disappoint! Don’t forget a side of yuca fries and tres leches for dessert.
My husband and I drive down from Middletown to eat here. The best guacamole EVER!!
Our favorite southwest restaurant in Connecticut!
Our favorite New Haven restaurant, especially when we go to College Street Music Hall. Always great food. Always great service. Love the outdoor tables.
Delicious food and great for outdoor dining on thr front patio
Service was friendly and conversational - loved that we weren’t rushed and stayed for hours! Mahi Mahi tacos and margaritas were amazing !
I think our server forgot about us for a bit. We had to ask someone to get him so we could place our food order. That said, once ordered, the food came out quick and was good. A bit pricier than I pre-COVID, but nothing out of the norm vs peers
Food and drinks were good. Service was not great at all. Our waiter never checked on us and disappeared for about 45 mins. The manager didn’t seem to care when told about it.
Service was fantastic. Best guacamole in Connecticut. Buffalo nickels were OK. Bacon was undercooked. Prices are a little high but overall a good experience. Way too dark in the establishment. You can't really see anything. Drinks were amazing - spicy blood orange margarita is the best around.
Great atmosphere, wonderful option for outdoor dining. Food was a little greasy but overall good with amazing tequila options.
Sunday brunch, restaurant less than 50%, party of 8 - staff seemed sufficient to my untrained eye. Drinks and apps were prompt, but wait staff didn't check in. After we finally ordered, the food took over an hour to arrive, and then had to chase her down for the check. Great concept, good food, great tequila menu, fun atmosphere. Could be Geronimo is still recovering from pandemic wait-staff shortage (benefit of doubt). Certainly hope this gets fixed.
Great drinks, great service and exceptional food!!
Parents weekend. We were in the patio at 12:15 and the music was so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation.
Excellent service from bartender covering our table to assist the waitress. Very attentive but not intrusive. Food was excellent & fresh.
Food was great.. tables were a little to close to each other had to speak over the people next to us.. and found ourself yelling.. food was amazing! No complaints on food..
