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 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.

We are primarily reservation only, and we plan on 90 minutes per reservation. If you need more time, let us know when you book your table and we will be happy to accommodate!

After 9 PM, all guests must be 21 years of age or older unless accompanied by a legal guardian or placing/picking up a takeout order.

    Food and service was great. My daughter’s meal was a little too spicy for her (the BLT), but we enjoyed our other entrees and apps.

    Great food, clean, ambiance was fun and laid back. Our waitress was new and in training however she explained that early on which I appreciated. She did good. Happy hour with friends and we had a really good time all and all.

    Not really worth the hype. We arrived about 5 minutes before our dinner reservation at 5:30 and were seated immediately. Before we even had a chance to sit, the hostess informs us that we have until 7pm to be done eating for another reservation. I understand it was busy, but it was very off-putting for our first dining experience there. Based on other reviews, I thought I'd be wowed by the food, but I wasn't really impressed at all. I had the lobster and bacon quesadilla, which tasted ok but was severely lacking bacon. My husband had the carne asada steak, which he couldn't finish because he said it was too salty. Overall, I don't think I'll be going back.

    It was an experience. The majority of the food was really good. The shrimp tacos were kinda dry. The noise was pretty loud and it was a little difficult to converse. My problem with this restaurant is their refusal to give out parking vouchers that are supposed to be given out to their customers in partnership with the city. I struggle to believe that the only way to hand them out is if the manager is present. It was difficult getting an explanation from the staff and questions were pretty much ignored. You could have just said you didn't have any instead of telling us to wait for the manager to return but you don't even know when that is.

    We went to Geronimo for Sunday Brunch in New Haven and the food was excellent ... tacos were terrific as well as the tableside guacamole and chips. Everything tastes homemade and delicious! Our server was 'Veronica' and she made us some really awesome margaritas and was super friendly and attentive. I ordered the strawberry cucumber margarita while my husband had the traditional. It was a terrific way to start our Sunday! Thank you Geronimo!! Love that place - always!!!

    Since the owners of shell and bones owns this too we wanted to give it a try as we love shell. We had a table outside but it wasn’t ready and the host was so apologetic we were completely fine with it so we went to the bar. The female bartender was fun and social. I had the best classic mojito with lotts of fresh lime and mint (how I like it) since Miami in April ,my husband had beer and my daughter a white sangria that had lorr ur s of fruit with a splash of pineapple that gave it a great taste. Table was ready for us in approximately 15 minutes. We had a table right against the railing where we could sit and watch people go by on Crown Street. My husband and my daughter ordered the guacamole tableside which they were so excited for. I ordered the mango salsa which was absolutely phenomenal. I do not eat guacamole but according to my husband it was the best he’s ever had my daughter agreed. The chips were yummy. We all thought made in house. For dinner my husband had the shrimp tacos, my daughter had el pastor tacos and I had the surf and turf quesadilla that was a special for the night. It was open faced with braised short ribs and baby shrimp. We all had an order of Mexican street corn as well which was so tender and nicely dressed with a sauce and a crumble on the top which none of us could figure out what it was but it was yummy. If we didn’t eat so much appetizers we would’ve found room for dessert but we said next time. We will definitely be back. It was a great meal, great atmosphere, great server though she never told us her name but she was pleasant and kind. Great job!! We never have a problem paying for good food. We thought the prices were on par with the economy and everything was well prepared, hot, and enough that you were full.

    My wife and I come to New Haven roughly 8 times a year for shows. Since find a Geronimos we no longer eat anywhere else when visiting. We love eating on the porch. No matter how busy it is the service is always excellent. The food is top-notch and eclectic. Some of the entries I’ve never had anywhere else. I once again I’d like to think the wait staff. They’re beyond excellent with great personalities. No drones here

    This dinner was the first time for us to go to Geronimo. We found the food to be good, portions reasonable, and drinks good though the alcohol in the pitchers could be increased or the amount of ice decreased. The tables with the center area set for reptiles/ scorpions and such was cool rig they did not have any at the time we went. The food was Tex/Mex ish. The spicy margaritas were flavorful as was the food and not overly spicy. The burger was massive and good.

    Ever since the wife and I found Geronimo, we don’t eat anywhere else in New Haven. The wait staff are exceptional as is everything on the menu. It does tend to get a bit noisy, but that’s OK. I love taking people there that I’ve never eaten there before and watch their reaction!

    We loved the atmosphere, very well put restaurant with a deck and interior sitting. Both great. The food was delicious. Probably the best mexican food restaurant I have tried in CT. The only problem is that is not fully mexican style. They make twists so it is not fully authentic. Service was okay, the server was nice but when I asked her for additional stuff you could tell she was not pleased and was rude sometimes. All in all, a good place.

    The food was fantastic! There is nothing better than having your guacamole made right by your table, and it was so good. We had tacos wrapped in lettuce and it was very delicious. The restaurant has such a cool vibe with a funky crowd. My daughter and I just love it! It is a must-go-to in New Haven

    Such a cool vibe in this restaurant! We sat downstairs in the tequila cellar, which was brick walls, dark lighting, made me fee like I was in Italy, we loved it! I got the pork tacos and they were delicious, the sweet potatoes were the best I've ever had hands down, so much flavor. I also got a side of mac and cheese and that was so good to! The to margaritas I got were very strong and very good! To top it all off I had the fried ice cream and that was also not a let down. Definitely cant wait to go back!

    Drinks were excellent! Guacamole was the best ever! The seating area was terrible. The roof was leaking and the floor had puddles of water where we were sitting. This should be fixed. It was uncomfortable for us to have to sit under a leaking roof while we were eating
