$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.

    The patio was cold. I never took off my jacket and my knit cap. Also, there was a family with extremely loud young kids. The kids were screaming and horseplaying the entire time. It was very annoying. Other than that it was great.

    Visited the restaurant last night for the first time. The server was very helpful providing menu suggestions. The table side guacamole was excellent and the tap beer was very cold. Tried the Santa Fe style chicken tacos and really enjoyed them. My wife had the chicken tika and liked it very much. Had such a good time that we’re going back tonight to try new dishes. But for sure will have the tap beer and guacamole to start off with.

    Arrived and was told we would have 50 minutes before they needed the table back even though we were told 90 minutes when making our reservation. Decided to sit at the bar instead where there was no time limit. We were served our entrees 50 minutes after sitting down. Food was good though.

    We ordered the shared main dish and I would not recommend. It is basically a taco stew and it is impossible to tackle gracefully. We were digging through and trying not to make a mess and missing ingredients. For instance, if you want beans on your tiny tortilla (smaller than the palm of your hand, and the corn tortillas were soggy), you cannot access them until you eat three layers first. Also everything in the pot tasted the same. The chips and salsa were good, I would try the place again but not a soggy taco stew. Server was very nice. Place is cool.

    Right from the start, my yummy spicy margarita (not too hot, but a nice tingle) was a hit and I knew another great meal was to be had at Geronimo's. The last time we shared a Molcajete for Two, it was very flavorful and filled with a good amount of the meats & shrimp. This time the 2 entrees were a deconstructed pork burrito (bowl) and a mac and cheese. The pork burrito was super tasty and substantial in size. The chimayo chile sauce and mexican crema were the absolute perfect sauces for the pork! My husband's mac & cheese was great, as well. He often prefers little to no spice, so he ordered the hatch chiles on the side. Fortunately, they were very mild, only slightly smoky, and he added them to the mac dish. The cream of the mac dish was perfect, not to thin & not too thick. We will definitely return to explore more dishes!

    Always a great time at Geronimo’s. We had a table reserved in the front with an excellent server Emma. You never wait on a reservation we were seated immediately. We ordered drinks which consisted of a Moscow Mule, white, sangria, strawberry lime margarita, and a classic Mojito. We started with their delicious homemade chips, medium spiced, tableside guacamole, as well as the tableside mango salsa. The server gave us extra chips with the two starters they were delicious. For meals, we had the shrimp tacos my husband and I the Tijuana tacos for my daughter and the baby back rib dinner which my son said was absolutely amazing. The mac & cheese had a Mexican style to it, as well as the Mexican cheese on the street corn, which was on the cob. No one had room for dessert but if we did the Tres leches cake, and the churros would be my first pack. Service is always excellent. Food is always on point. We continue to keep coming back each and every time. Geronimo’s is definitely a place we visit frequently. Great everything all and if you haven’t tried it, you should. You won’t be disappointed.

    Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Definitely a vibrant (somewhat loud) atmosphere but we still loved it. We went for dinner later on a Friday night so the bar crowd was kicking into high gear as we were leaving. Will definitely be back!

    This is my second time and the food was just as memorable as the first! We made a reservation for Sunday morning brunch. The staff was very accommodating and flexible with the amount of people I had and where we could sit. The espresso was amazing. My shrimp tacos were amazing. The chocolate filled churros were absolutely AMAZING. Everything about my meal was enjoyable. Our waitress was very kind and considerate of my allergies. She let us stay at our table long after we should have left, and I thank her for that 🙏🏻

    This restaurant has gone so far down hill. Been coming here since 2020. The guacamole is half the size that it used to be. They stuff the guac container half with chips and think that people won’t notice a difference? Seriously? Mediocre food. I think I’m done here.
