Geronimo - New Haven

$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.

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 or picking up a takeout order.

Food and service were great and we were seated right on time. We had an extra guest at the outset and they accommodated that change with no issues. It did become quite loud but I'm not sure what could be done about that as it happens in busy energetic places. Two thumbs up!

A reliable choice. Food and drinks are solid, good atmosphere and friendly service. Parking is always a challenge and there are items on the menu that are only available during certain time windows, which is frustrating. Overall, a positive experience.

This was my first time eating at Geronimo's. We had a table outside and we found the atmosphere very inviting. Food and service were both very good. The only issue we had was there were some annoying little bugs, perhaps it may make sense to add some screening to the outside dinning area. Keep up the great work!

Took our daughter here to celebrate her promotion…food was delicious, seasoned perfectly and very fresh, drinks were awesome, service was great! Absolutely THE BEST guacamole we’ve ever had! We will be back for more, More, MORE!!!
Atmosphere was a very FUN vibe for a Saturday night. We sat inside, although they have plenty of outdoor and bar seating, too. Although a bit loud, we were able to carry on a conversation without screaming to each other. It was awesome to see New Haven so lively and thriving after a year and a half of COVID quarantine!!

One steak dish wasn’t hot & wanted our waitress to reheat it. By the time she came back to our table it was cold & not worth it. Also asked another person to get our waitress & said she couldn’t find her. Disappointing.

Honestly the food is not that good. The guacamole was tasty, but the special burrito was greasy and the sauce was spicy without significant flavor. The waitress checked on us twice during the meal. One persons beer was brought much in advance of everyone else and he was finished it by the time the other drinks were brought out. We asked for the check at the same time as dessert, because we didn’t know how long it would take for her to come back. There are much better places around, such as Pacifico. I won’t be back.

Would love to have REAL IN-HOUSE MADE Churros after my meal. Plain, no filling, just dusted with cinnamon and sugar along with a cup of Mexican Coffee (not Italian espresso).

That's all.

Our waiter Ulysses was excellent: very attentive, friendly, courteous, knowledgeable of the menu and bar items, and responsive. The food was delicious. The noise level, however, was excessively loud, especially for older patrons like ourselves for whom it was difficult to have a conversation without shouting. (My voice was hoarse the next day!)

My husband and I had an impromptu date night. Geronimo’s is one of our favorites! The food is always delicious, and the service is always top notch. It was pretty busy for a Tuesday night, but I think everyone is eager to get out after being cooped up during Covid. Some may consider the service a little slower, but we didn’t mind the leisurely pace. We have a 7 year old so dinner out is usually eat and go😂 We would recommend Geronimo’s to anyone, and can’t wait for our next visit!

This was my first time at Geronimo and it deserves the hype it gets! The place was beautiful inside and out and the food was amazing. The empanadas and table side guacamole were delicious appetizers! The place was busy and I understand why, because the quality is high! Definitely check this place out! It didn’t disappoint.

the Ribeye steak was overcooked, but the flavor was good. The waiter took this special off the bill. Everything else, including drinks and Apps were delicious.

It was good, we were seated promptly, it started out as my fiancé and I having dinner but suddenly a friend became available to celebrate his graduation so we had another 3 people tag along, they were able to satisfy our need for a table of 5 without a wait, which was absolutely amazing, the food was great, pitchers of margaritas definitely recommended, especially the strawberry cucumber margarita!
