Las Palomas Restaurant-Bar Ratings and Reviews
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 were there for monthers day and it was great. We sat outside in a beautiful patio! We had guacamole, which one fresh and delicious. I had red snapper in lemon, butter sauce and my husband enjoyed shredded pork dish. Everything was delicious. We finished off with mango mouse. Very good experience
We love to go to Las Palomas whenever we get the chance. The service is always exceptional, friendly and accommodating. The food is consistently delicious! We have celebrated there for birthdays, friend gatherings, a wedding rehearsal dinner and anniversaries through the years.
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!
One of our favorite neighborhood gems. The food is so authentic and after trying many menu items , we have never been disappointed. They had live jazz which is available on Thursday and Saturday. The margaritas are so yummy. We always make a reservation because it can get crowded on the weekends. I have even ordered the enchiladas for take out.
We are regulars here, but went for Valentine's Day/ Fixed Price menu had generous number of options and the food was quite good. never pass up the paella when it is on the menu ! They even threw in a free glass of Prosecco. Live music and great bar. Recommend it for casual dining any day of the week.
I have been here before and it was very delicious. Valentines Day was not that great. I ordered the fish. It came with some type of vegetable mix that was cold - still not sure if it was supposed to be. The music was SO loud you couldn't talk. I thought the choices and the quality of the food was not equal to the price we paid per meal. Which I think was about $65. I'm not saying I won't go back but I would have preferred to have their regular menu. Lesson learned - don't go out to eat on Valentine's Day.
I thought the food was very well prepared but it being Valentine's Day the menu was limited. We need to return on a day when we can order from full menu. The full menu had some dishes we would love to try. We would definitely recommend to our friends and will return to sample items from the full menu.
