Great service. The food was on point! We were the last table and they treated us like gold! I love Las palomas. The achiote drum was so tasty. The best salad was wonderful with different textures finished off the night with chocolate heavenly dense cake!

I had not visited Las Palomas in awhile, not by design. I like the fact that the restaurant "stays the same." Fine by me! The magic is on the plates. An appetizer Tostada Trio, featuring ceviche, chicken mole, and pork pibil ... a knock out! The chicken mole and pork pibil stack up against anybody in town, all for a few bucks!

Next ... tortilla soup ... which I order almost every where I dine, if its on the menu. I love to see all the different soups that show up at the table. No two tortilla soups in Austin are the same. Every place, every chef, has his or her "grandma's recipe" ... At Las Palomas, the tortilla soup is a fairly thick tomato-based creation, almost like a bisque. Super fresh tomatoes, a few spices, a sprinkle of cotija cheese ... comfort on a cold night in Austin!

The actual meal was the seafood veracruzana, another Mexican creation I try every where. Fresh tomatoes, olives, capers, onions ... and broiled fish. Awesomeness!!! If I have any negative comment about the Las Palomas experience, it was the selection of fish available for the veracruzana dish. The options were salmon (not the right fish for this dish at all) and tilapia. Hear me out ... that's NOT a knock against Las Palomas. Most restaurants in Austin have tilapia, and not much else, and the Gulf of Mexico is only a couple of hours away. :-(

One final thought, and special mention of my waitress, Mandy. If it wasn't her actual first night, it may have been her second. A wonderful young lady, personable, smiling, laughing, I explained some of the dishes on the menu to her! LOL Mandy naturally understands the "attentive, but not hovering" style. Word to Las Palomas ... you don't need to hire any more folks to work the dining room, just clone Mandy!

We love Laa Palomas. The food is always consistently delicious. Upon arrival we expanded our group from 5 to 10 people and the folks did not skip a beat. Great service and attention.

Las Palomas is a great family owned neighborhood GEM. Friends and I enjoy meeting there on Thursday and Saturday evenings for dinner and the awesome LIVE MUSIC of the band called 7EVEN. The food is consistently good and the band keeps the music at a volume that’s good for dinner conversation. I especially enjoy the Ceviche Tostadas, yummy!! We’ll definitely be back again 😊

We had a reservation and were seated on time. The shrimp fajitas with fried onions and red peppers were excellent as was the flan. The whole meal was surprisingly moderately priced and we loved the ambiance and listening to the live jazz in the next dining area.

We've been eating at Las Palomas since it opened decades ago. It's always good. You can't beat the Las Palomas Combination Plate for a fabulous diverse collection of flavors. I get it every time and it's great!

Chose it due to reviews of being quiet, but it was much noisier than I had expected
