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, as seating is limited at this time. Due to this limitation, 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!

Per Connecticut Executive Order, our max party size is 8 people, including children.

Date night with hubby, my waiter was not as supportive with me trying new things and explaining the menu. The waitress I had few weeks ago during Girls night was amazing which inspired me to return. I love the atmosphere and compliance with cdc regulations, food and drinks 👍🏾..... would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Geronimos never disappoints! The service, food and experiences is overall outstanding. We love the change of specials every week, and the fun drinks also make the experience that much better.

We were seated in the enclosed porch area, next to a guy who coughed every 2 minutes. The hostess was extremely rude, and the waiter was impersonal. The friendly guy who made the table side guacamole was great. I would go again for the drinks but not for the food and service.

Everything was good except we were there less than an hour and the hostess said we needed to leave because there was another reservation. We had already paid the bill at this point and were getting ready to leave anyway. The signs said we had 90 minutes and the table next to us was there before we came and still going strong when we left. Didn’t appear they were being rushed. Very rude.

Service was great. Given Covid-19, Geronimo’s outdoor seating in the patio is well ventilated and heated.
Ordered the same dishes few weeks ago, and I preferred prior tastes because it had stronger flavors. However, the guacamole was perfect!

Great restaurant, love the atmosphere usually but there was a very big and loud group near the bar and in covid times that didn't make me feel comfortable. Mgr should have stepped in but I get it, tough.

The wait service was good and food was excellent but waiting to be seated was a joke! Had a reservation and 5 couples that arrived after got seated prior to-we waited over 20 mins to be seated. There was a gentleman seating people and he was not very pleasant when I commented that maybe we were forgotten to my friend. They did offer an open table that was available outside..it was 30 degrees out if I wanted to sit outside I would have requested it.

I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant. Not only was there a nice ambiance, but the food was amazing. The guacamole with chips was one of the best I’ve had, hands down! We got a pitcher of margarita and we were not disappointed. The service was amazing as well. I highly recommend coming here!

Margaritas always the best along with the tableside guacamole. Somewhat chilly outside even with the heaters. Always love it here
