Geronimo - New Haven

4.6
730 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our first time at Geronimo. Everything was excellent from the appetizers, to the main meal as well as the drinks. We didn't leave room for desert, but I'm sure that would have been great too. Great staff and experience. We will go back.

Reserved outside table. There are 2-3 outdoor booths. We were sat at the booth and told none of the table were available. When making reservation there was no option to select table or booth. I would suggest calling ahead if you need a table.

I ordered the beer battered shrimp (very good) and rice with black beans (very good). My Shirley Temple tasted like warm seltzer, no flavor and my coke tasted like water with a splash of coke, not good or refreshing. First time there and would not go back
