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!

Loved the band - thought it would be too noisy but the music was great and at a level we could enjoy band and our conversation. All the food is always outstanding! Love your anything with Limon and capers! Waitress was very accommodating when I asked to move out table thinking the band would be noisy...wrong!

Normally one of my husband and I love to come here. We have celebrated many special occasions here. And while the food was good, the service was horrible and they weren't even that crowded. My salmon salad was prepared wrong and they didn't bring my meal until all the other people in our party were finished. They didn't even comp the meal. Hopefully the service will get better.

We were looking for a different Tex-Mex location than normal and tried this place. It was merely alright. It wasn't innovative or different than what it seems like every other similar restaurant would have (including drinks). Service was ok, but we got stuck at a small table between two doors so it wasn't a great location to try and have a conversation with someone.

This was really awesome. The food was great the drinks were great the jazz band was great the service was great the atmosphere was great. What a find!! The noise level I put on high because there's a jazz band sometimes. But I mean you can still talk it's not too loud. And that's just in the main dining room the other parts of it it's quiet enough like it's not a big deal.

I love this restaurant. I have lived in Westlake since 1992. Having grown up in Laredo Texas and married to a girl whose mother was from Mexico City this restaurant truly has a different and truer version of Mexican food. Their mole sauce spectacular, Chile Riano's are incredibly tasty, Samon beat salad is always a great lunch. Enjoy and do yourself a favor and check Las Palmas out

We went on Saturday night over music festival weekend. Since we had a reservation we were seated immediately, but the restaurant was full and there was a small crowd waiting, so highly recommend using Open Table on a weekend night. This is a neighborhood restaurant but we drove about 15 miles from our home to eat here because it was the only Mexican restaurant that takes reservations at the time we wanted; we didn't want to wait 2 hours at one of the chain Mexican restaurants. I have to say we were very pleased with our experience. The food is excellent, my wife had the mole enchiladas and loved them, I had carne asada plate and it was excellent as well. My daughter and her boyfriend also gave high marks to their enchilada and fajitas meals. Our Las Palomas Margaritas were not very good - perhaps an isolated incident - and we told the waiter. He recommended the El Mejor Margaritas and we loved them. There was a jazz band playing but my wife was the only one that clapped for them. Everyone else seemed oblivious to the entertainment, such a shame. We ate and enjoyed our drinks for a good two hours and never felt rushed to leave. Overall the final tab is reasonable for what you get, parking is plentiful, we had a very enjoyable and delicious meal. We will be repeat customers!
