When I arrive the noise level was so loud I almost turned and walked out. I stayed and ordered great food but the waitress was so incredibly rude and unwelcoming. She really messed up the mood even worse than the loud dining room! Horrible personality for a waitress and completely disconnected with the amazing chef I met the day before.

This is the second time my partner and I came here for dinner. The first time, we didn't make a reservation so we ate by the door. The food was fantastic- we tried the guacamole and chips, the tortilla soup, the huilacoche platter which was incredible. Last night, we came back for cinco de mayo and I had made reservations in advance so we got to sit further in the back of the restaurant. This time, I ordered the tamales- 1 vegetarian and 1 with chicken- both were delicious The platanos con creme y queso was so delicious For our entree, we shared the chile relleno- OMG, it was soo delicious, it comes with yellow beans and rice so perfect to share. The restaurant is loud and noisy so if you want a quiet romantic dinner, don't recommend but if you don't mind the loudness, this is a gem in East Village.

Lamb was freezer burned. Not happy with the food at all. The only thing that tasted good was the guacamole and the rice and beans.

The restaurant was not busy but we had to get up and get the waitress for additional drinks. We also had to get up and ask for our check. Food was okay...nothing I would go back for again.

On the flip side - the Service was good and the staff was pleasant

I got the huevos a la Mexicana with egg whites ($13) and my friend got the steak quesadilla ($7). Great value for the food that we got. My dish came with a side of two warm tortillas and three different salsas, and my friend seemed to enjoy his quesadilla. We sat there for three hours without ordering anything else, the servers were friendly and diligently filled our water cups about a dozen times at least. We weren’t rushed or made to feel like we’d outstayed our welcome, which we certainly did and I wouldn’t have blamed them if they didn’t want us to sit any longer. It wasn’t too busy and the atmosphere was lively but not overwhelming, as many places tend to be on Sundays. We left a big tip as a thank you for letting us stay so long despite not ordering much. I’m glad I chose this place and will definitely be back for more relaxed and delicious lunches.

The drink I had was pretty good, my date didn’t enjoy her drink as much. The best part of the meal was the cheese and shrimp appetizer we ordered. It was delicious. Stay away from the tilapia tacos until they change the recipe and my date’s relleno was OK. Will try again but will get different entrees.

Could not have asked for a better brunch experience! I say this especially in light of our slowly returning to restaurants during a pandemic. Was relieved to see careful and thoughtful hosts screening all guests upon arrival yet was elated that La Palapa still maintains a terrific dining environment. It really was great! And the food... DELICIOUS as always! Thank you and mil gracias! Can't wait to come back AGAIN!
