I've been going to this restaurant for years -- I even got married here 17 years ago. The food, service and overall high quality experienced has not changed. Enjoy the Tres Leches cake - it was my wedding cake! Highly, highly recommend.
AMAZING!! Great service
Great atmosphere, relaxed setting- good food for a fair price!
Tacos and quesadillas were all incredible, and the drinks hot the spot. Thanks for a great meal and warm hospitality!
Fantastic food and great service, as always... Richard made it a special night as always. Terrific margarita, too. Can’t wait to go again soon.
Absolutely terrible service. Waiter brought out 2 items incorrectly and the tres leche desert was one of the worst cakes I’ve ever had. The waiter also charged us for an extra item we did not order. One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had during the pandemic, both my date and I said we would tell everyone we know to never come here.
Great food, and tasty margaritas -- if a little expensive. But overall one of my fave Mexican restaurants!
Food was salty. Pitcher of Sangria was missing fruits. Decor was okay.
Very good food, efficient reservation system. Mole enchiladas were excellent.
Best brunch in NYC. Great food options and excellent margaritas that pack a punch.
I absolutely love this place! Phenomenal service, great margs and yummy food.
The food is always consistently good here! We always bring friends and they always are impressed. Keep up the culinary skills-we are glad you are still around!!
Excellent experience except the crazy controlling owner who runs around the restaurant telling you what to do and how to use the bathroom. So strange. Too bad because the food is delicious. Someone needs to tell her to lay off the customers because she scares business away.
Best brunch I’ve been so far! Food was great and drink were delicious but a bit over priced a bit but great atmosphere too
great service and nice staff. food was plentiful but not as flavorful as i had hoped. overall we had a great time and i would definitely pass the word along. seemed like they have a regular group of clients so that's a plus.
I went to this restaurant for a date night.
Great food, Great service. Will definitely visit again!
Richard is the best
Great food! Very clean. Friendly staff. Nice outdoor dining option.
La Palapa remains the best Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood. They run a very professional and friendly operation, with great food in a pleasant atmosphere. I'm always glad I came here.
Great vibes and great food! A little pricey for the area but overall worth it for the friendly and accommodating service. Will definitely be back!
The service was great! We enjoyed the meal, the recommendations, and the ambience. Would go back again!
A lovely evening! Delicious food, margaritas and lovely waiters.
Deelish vegan plate. Fresh and tasty.
I booked a large group of 20 of friends/colleagues in town for a conference. Service was impeccable especially given the size of our group, everyone raved about the food, and the price was right on budget!
Very good food! very good brunch special, thank you!
I had heard great things and was very excited to try La Palapa with a group of friends. There were 10 of us and we were seated in the back room with another large group which wasn't ideal since the vibe back there is not as nice as the main room, but I understood since there were so many of us. The drinks and food were fine, but the service was disappointing. Again, I understand that we were a large group but requests needed to be made numerous times, food was late and then we were given the incorrect bill twice. My friend who was paying received the bill, gave her credit card and then was given a receipt for a much higher amount. She questioned this and then the waiter came back another time with a different bill, again for a higher amount. We reviewed the final bill and made sure that it was accurate but it was still quite frustrating for our party to be sitting through this time-consuming process and ultimately be given multiple incorrect bills. I will likely not come back here.
The shrimp quesadilla were amazing and so was the mango margs. The place was really loud but hey it was happy hour.
Great brunch menu. Reasonable and tasty. We’ll be going back there soon for a THIRD brunch.
cheyenne we will miss you!
Delicious, fresh, and innovative cooking. I come back here when I'm in the area.
Lovely tasty food pleasant atmosphere!
Host was very nice and accommodating to our group. We weren’t just a number to them and they cared about our experience. Great service.
Perfect evening with family or friends. Great for groups. Food is AMAZING.
Even though chilaquiles were not on the dinner menu, the chef accommodated my request. All of our food was very good, the service was excellent, our waitress Mer was charming and Richard, the manager, came to our table several times to make sure everything was ok. Thank you Palapa, we will be back.
Food is excellent, love the drinks, love the atmosphere! Thank you!
Great spot and amazing food!
Went on a Sunday night. We ordered Guacamole and chips which were very good. I had the chicken enchilada with red mole sauce and it was outstanding. My wife had a couple flour tacos which were very good. Margaritas were very good. Friendly, attentive service. Nice ambiance.
We are semi regulars at La Palapa and are always treated so well! I highly recommend it!
Our entries came out less than five minutes after our appetizers- no room on the table and had to eat the hot food before it got cold,leaving an inabilities to enjoy the guacamole and veggies
