At Geronimo, located in New Haven, Connecticut, enjoy savory comfort foods in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. Its simple, rustic, country-style décor is accented by wood furniture, torch sconces, antler chandeliers over large tables and longhorn skulls on the walls throughout. Sit at the long covered porch seating, which is reminiscent of an old farmhouse cabin. Brunch is served every Sunday, while the full saloon-style bar offers up all the beers, cocktails and other spirits you could want for a night out with friends. Geronimo's plentiful menu features Southwest classics like braised short ribs, pan-crisped elk meatloaf and the spicy bacon burger. Geronimo's regular guests also rave about Mexican-inspired favorites like tacos, burritos and specialties like the table-side guacamole and salsa.
The service was great when we asked our server what he would recommend he was very knowledgeable. The food was fantastic along with the margaritas. We will definitely be returning.
Great food and drinks, authentic ingredients.
Great place to grab a bite or drink with friends. Not a place to go for an exceptional dining experience.
Geronimo is a winner when it comes to tequila-based drinks. But the food is worthwhile, too. Nothing fancy, just well-executed Mexican/Southwest fare.
The restaurant has the best tequila selection around. The drink menu is very well rounded. The food was great and the outdoor patio is very nice. We will definitely be back.
Enjoyed the outdoor seating. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious. I got the veggie tacos and we split veggie nachos, they were both great ! Hugo was a fun and witty server. This will be my go to spot next time I'm in the New Haven area !
The Incan Goddess margarita was too die for - so many choices and so much jalapeno-infused tequila. The table-side guacamole was spiced to perfection and extra fresh. Loved my tamales as well. Great experience!
Great outdoor dining, great menu and good service
Geronimo has great things to eat and a wide selection of tequilla. Unfortunately it was so loud and so hot in the back of the restaurant
A local place for a quality time. Would not put on a must see list, but if your in the area and want mexican, its there.
Second time here...ambiance keeps getting better. The outdoor seating area is quite unique...instead of being next to the street, guests are elevated and the outdoor seating area has an awning...very attractive and appealing area. The food is Tex-Mex...I appreciated being able to order a small or large plate. Being a part-time vegetarian depending on the day, I would recommend that this restaurant include on its menu cheese enchiladas and more non-meat/fish choices.
Probably the best guacamole anywhere around. Mahimahi tacos just great. Spicy bloody Mary (with tequila - not vodka) just right. Santa Fe margarita very, very well done. I look forward to my next visit.
Our server, Elizabeth, was excellent. Appetizers and entree variety and selections were very very good. Service was well timed. Atmosphere very comfortable. I am usually cold at restaurants but was very comfortable at Geronnimo's. Not enough dessert selection for gluten and alcohol free diners. Disappointed. What happened to rice pudding? Overall, very good but left without dessert and coffee.
At the insistence of my friend we made reservations for a Thursday night. Worried about parking, we arrived about 30 minutes early- they managed to seat us right away. The cocktails we ordered were fantastic; the Spicy Blood Orange margarita was made with tequila that has the perfect infusion of jalapeño. The food, was amazing as well- fried jalapeño slices and onion strips, not overly greasy, just right, and very crispy. I ordered a burger and my friend a quinoa dish, both were great. We shared a tres leches, a delicious treat. We'll definitely be back!
Delicious Mexican food in a lovely setting. Start with the table side guacamole- pricey- but delicious! The braised short ribs could have been a bit moister but we're tasty and served on a delicious pile of grits. The chicken quesadilla was a hit. Nice selection of cocktails- the strawberry mojito was very good and outside dining in nice weather. A neighborhood gem!
Reservation was made for 9pm. Arrived early and by 10 our table still was not ready. Ended up being seated in a crowded noisy area.
Service and drinks were good, food was mediocre
Table-side quacamole is fabulous and the margaritas are awesome. It's a loud, lively place - almost better for a group of friends than a romantic dinner for two.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's Geronimo. Best margaritas! Best selection of fine and rare tequilas. Best custom-made guacamole! (We like ours no onions, extra spicy!) Diverse menu. Wide and creative selection, even if you're not feeling Tex-Mex. Excellent, attentive service. Highly recommend and not to be missed during the New Haven Jazz Festival.
We received a welcome greeting upon arrival, were seated at a fun table, the restaurant had a great feel initially but later it became too loud to hear ourselves speak. Our waiter was pleasant, he recommended a very good wine but the food was very disappointing. There was also a very strong smell of onion which came from the guacamole which was made at everyone's table. The guacamole was, for my taste, too mushy. The desserts, on the other hand, were delicious. Unfortunately, we went for the main course, so we will not be returning.
I've always enjoyed this spot... You get exactly what you picture. Good food and margaritas with a pretty cool scene.
