Good food good vibes good service I enjoyed the experience and will be back
Loved this place years ago, pretty awful now. All of our drinks came out wrong, the food was mediocre. Staff did the bare minimum. Definitely my last visit.
Incredible guacamole!! Enjoyed fish tacos and yummy red sangria...they had a special, $10 a pitcher...couldn't get over it. Sweet server too!
Went with a group of 15 people for my birthday and it was tons of fun! They sat us in a back private room so we had it all to ourselves. They were super accommodating, however the food was pretty awful, especially for the price. And the frozen margaritas were pretty watered down. Still fun though!
Had a great meal. Our server was exceptional. I cannot remember her name but she was awesome.
The food was delicious and the service was great!
Great place for large groups, they were able to accommodate 15 people and called to confirm as well. The food is divine - when the entrees came out everyone stopped talking they were so into what they were eating. Price wise for a large group is very reasonable per person and the drinks were nice as well. We had some serving issues - they came for the order and never passed back again so it seemed like we were hunting them down to get water refills and order more drinks and other items which is why I took off one star. However the people behind us were having a wonderful time and well attended to so maybe it was our size? I would still go back as the food was that good.
Seriously amazing. They never disappoint when it comes to their service, ambiance, and food!!!! Our server was awesome and super sweet and gave us good warning on our bottomless beverage times and was just all around amazing.
Amazing bang for the buck, $17 gets you an entree with unlimited coffee and a mimosa. Don’t even need the bottomless option, but if you get it for another $15 it’s a ton of value. Great spot, friendly staff, nice vibe
Great for a large group birthday brunch! We had our own private room with great lighting.
Food was subpar. Service was fairly good, the waiter had great recommendations, took time to take our drink orders.
La Palapa is a very good Mexican restaurant in the East Village. We were going to a play at the nearby NY Theater Workshop and had no trouble getting to the theater in plenty of time. Our waiter was very friendly and happy to explain menu items we were not familiar with. We expect to return in the near future.
I reserved for 10 for all the mothers in the family, along with 2 teens and an 8 year old. First of all, service was on point. Our server was the sweetest and made sure we were taken care of. Food was amazing, plus great portions. Brunch (including bottomless option) was available until 5pm, which was a pleasant surprise for us. Thank you again for making our Mothers Day celebration a memorable one!
The people were very nice, the service excellent, the guacamole was good, the rest of our four meals, very medicore.
Had a great experience with my mom there! Great service and food!
Great food, great service, great drinks
We went on Cinco de Mayo so I don't know if that was a factor or not but we had an okay dinner. The food was just not what the menu promised. Drinks were very inconsistent, some so strong they were undrinkable. The place was packed but the real issue was noise. It was so loud that we couldn't wait to get out. Really not a great experience overall.
Great food and ambiance. The reservation was handled well and timely. Although not a big restaurant, there was enough space among tables to not feel cramped. Menu was easy to read and waiter was helpful with suggestions. Food was uniformly excellent and was fairly priced. Even the drinks were well done. Would definitely return and would recommend to friends.
Missed drinks, tacos that sat out for so long before receiving them that everything fell apart when you lifted them having to stand by the credit card machine to ask for your check going to an atm to get cash then coming back to leave cash to avoid what was certainly going to be a 20 minute credit card processing dilemma.
Seemed to be a management / service issue, not necessarily a kitchen issue
We LOVE La Palapa. Have been going there for years as local east villagers. The east village has changed, the people have changed, but not La Palapa. Its great to be able to go back to an authentic, really good, comfortable, great food, amazing margaritas and super friendly staff'd place. Thank you for adding Vegan options to your menu. And the Charred beans are to die for. Sooooo good. The only thing that I keep forgetting is that where there are margaritas, there is volume! The place is lively and super energetic, not the place for a quiet conversation. Cant wait to go back.
One of my favorite places in the city. Great food, good service. There are two bathrooms and so there's always a bit of a wait. But for some strange reason, I always make bathroom line friends and the people are always great.
Great, attentive service and delicious food. I would definitely go back for brunch.
Great service and food :) recommended
I went to La Palapa with a big group of friends to celebrate my birthday! They were so nice, and we got the back room all to ourselves. The food was delicious and we had so much fun!
Excellent as always! The roasted Serrano salsa is superb!
Staff and chef are wonderful, and make it their business to ensure everyone enjoys their meal!
This is a restaurant not to be missed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Best of all is the breathtaking view of the ocean and the sunset.
Great food and drink quality and amounts for the price. Waiters have always been super nice and accommodating.
They were able to accommodate a large birthday group (20 people) with no issues. Wonderful brunch not to mention great music!
The food was unbelievable!! Hidden gem in the east village!!
This was my first time here. I decided to take my girlfriends here for brunch for my birthday. We arrived a little late which thankfully wasn’t an issue. But our table was right next to the cash register and my two friends kept getting knocked by them. I just felt that was tough placement for a table. But other than that, things went very well.
Our waiter was fun and sweet! Since our drinks were held up at the bar for a few minutes, he extended the time of our unlimited drinks. :)
Had the duck tostadas that were delicious. And the tamarind margaritas were excellent!
We had a wonderful time! Food terrific a was staff. It was very busy Sunday Brunch crowd.
Fun brunch spot. Our server was extremely accommodating and helpful. Bottomless was truly bottomless, and food was fine.
It was my first time there on a date and it was very nice. The food was excellent and the service was great.
The Sunday brunch scene is well underrated here. You won't see sloppy young 20-somethings roaming about, which is great considering that there's a bottomless brunch option. It took a while for us to get our refills each time (a blender was broken? or they wanted to slow us down?), though our server was really kind and attentive.
La Palapa was delicious... the brunch drinks were served in super cute individual pitchers... and the food was just fantastic.
I found La Palapa while I was looking for a dinner location before a show at PS 122. The food was excellent and served quickly. The staff were truly outstanding. Each one was charming, in addition to, being helpful and welcoming. We will certainly dine here again and recommend to friends and family.
It was great drinks were strong!
