The establishment is closed! I should have done more research on it before reserving through OpenTable but it linked directly from their website. It made it for a funny start to my wedding anniversary dinner, though.
Service was very friendly and attentive
Very cool place to have a nice dinner. The meal was delishious, the wait staff was helpful and nice, I especially liked that they keep it authentic and have Spanish speaking waiters and waitresses. The only thing that was annoying is very loud crowd. I wish the management did something about it. One of the customers, 2 tables from us, was shouting on the top of his lungs. He almost spoiled the entire experience for us....
Was there for brunch with a friend - could not get a table for brunch in the summer and finally did this Sunday on nov 6 - nothing to shout about
I've been here several times and the service is great. Some dishes better than others. Scallops-fantastic. Brunch omelette-meh. Sangria - delicious. The music tends to be a bit loud, hard to converse at time, but overall, a nice place, especially in warm weather. Outside seating is great.
I was here when it first opened and the food was good. I guess they have a new fall menu and everything we had was great. Started out with the ribs and they were good. The best was the main course, as the paella was to die for; not many places around here when you can find paella, and I'll be back for it. We also had the lamb shank tacos, something different and very good. The place itself is cool, modern with all glass and some wood tones. We'll be back to try some more of the food that they gets cooked on the wood burning grill.
As we have had on multiple occasions, we had a wonderful dinner. The food and drinks were amazing and the service was excellent. Even though it is on the water, it is a great place to eat and drink all year round. The views are amazing and can't be beat. Whether we are on the patio, in the dining room or hosting a private event, we are always impressed. I would strongly recommend dining at Paloma and will continue going back for more memorable dining experiences.
There were not a lot of people eating in the restaurant, yet it took a very long time to get our drinks and food. that said -- the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly.
Great food, only wish service was as good.
The terrace is really nice and the octopus tostadas with margaritas were great
This restaurant was once connected with chef Aaron Sanchez, and while the service was slow back then, the food was at least inventive and pretty delicious. We had heard that the restaurant had recently severed ties with Chef Sanchez and decided to give it a look. What a disappointment. First of all, this is not a tapas restaurant anymore (and it is still being billed as one). Some things that we ordered never arrived (drinks), even after the food arrived. Guacamole (small) was I believe $11.00, and exceptionally spicy, accompanied by an entire bag of tortilla chips. Queso fundito was watery and flavorless (again with an absolute mountain of tortilla chips). Chicken meatballs were set aside after one bite, being underdone and not as expected. Fish tacos were expensive and contained very little yet overspiced filling. I was comparing these in my head to a far superior $3.00 bar taco version and really, really sorry I couldn't just get up and walk out. The waitress was sweet, but at the end our busboy dropped used flatware in my husband's lap. I think the restaurant is trying to make up for the lack of quality with a giant serving of quantity (and definitely a carb fest) rather than what we expected==a fresh tapas selection of small, flavorful plates. This space has so much potential because it is right on the water. Unfortunately it seems now to be targeting the very lowest common denominator of client. With Harbor Point opening many new restaurants in the vicinity, there is too much competition with higher quality food at better prices than Paloma, and I don't think it is going to survive unless some changes are made. Lighter and fresher options please. They seem to be confusing Catalon/Spanish tapas with really bad Mexican. If I wanted a bag of chips from the supermarket, I could do that on my own. I didn't need to make a reservation for it. I miss the old Paloma.
Food was delicious. Try the diver scallops and branzino. Look forward to another visit.
We have been going to Paloma since they opened and can remember when there was a line to get in and four deep at the bar. I Think it was because there was little competition in this fairly new development and because the food was better. The big change is that the food was so salty and over spiced we were sick from it. I love any food with a Mexican flare and was so disappointed. The restaurant was not as busy as it should have been for a beautiful Saturday night on the water. Inside was empty and outside half full. I hope they get their act together I used to like the food here.
Aaron Sanchez should be ashamed to have his name associated with this restaurant. The food was nowhere near the calibre of one of New York and the Food Network's top celebrity chefs. Not going to get into the details, but for example, I ordered the Heirloom Tomato salad. I was looking forward to a beautiful slice of an in-season heirloom tomato but what I got were halved cherry tomatoes. Not to mention the salad was LACED with an overload of sliced jalapeño .
But worse than the food was the service from our particular waiter. He was stoned and 100% ineffectual. We had to remind his of every drink and food order. When I went inside to track him down to look for our food, he was standing by the bar doing absolutely nothing.
Again, I blame Aaron for using his celebrity name to draw in food aficionados, but not delivering the goods in either food or service.
Restaurant is closed until Sep. 7th. You may want to update your schedules so people don't spend money going there to find the place closed.
Awesome experience. Took my girlfriend here for a nice Friday night dinner and it was great. We had an excellent waiter and the food was delicious. Will deffinitly be coming back
Great find-- wish I discovered this earlier in the summer!
The stuff was very friendly. Tapas was OK but nothing exciting.
Loved it! Great atmosphere , awesome food, great waitstaff!
Use to be good food. Now its terrible... it's a shame it went under...
I will not return.
It was a miss with the crab empanadas and the sauce dip that came with it. Even experienced a stomach ache that night. Was definitely expecting far better.
Absolutely awful food. Tapas are about basic cooking and everything that we ordered was ridiculously bad (other than the meatballs). Everything tastes like grease and plainly bad. Red Sangria tasted like cough medicine (e.g. masking flavor with sugar). Views are nice but cannot compensate for the food. Save your time and money.
Food, drinks, ambiance and service were all spot on. I'm amazed it took me so long to try this place!
Love almost everything about this restaurant: food, drinks and ambiance- and as far as I'm concerned – that's what a restaurant experience is all about !
Delicious appetizers, everything was very tasty but a bit spicy for our daughter so it was hard to find things her to eat. The waiter brought us pain avocado just for her, which was very nice.
I've been there twice now. Not sure what all the bad reviews are about. Food runs from Good to Very good to Terrific. Last month, some entrees were better than others and service was bit slow. We heard that the main chef was out for the night and the restaurant was super busy, so maybe that was the problem. Last Saturday night, service was efficient and all the tapas we ordered was delicious (although the restaurant was very empty for a Saturday night which is a real shame because it's great). Beautiful views. Lots of atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
Horrible service in all departments. It was almost as if they were providing a bad service on purpose. Big difference with my previous visit last year. What s pitty!
The service was lackluster eventhough the restaurant was very quiet. One lunch item that was ordered arrived incorrect so there was a delay. The tomato and mozzarella salad had the tiniest amount of cheese. One of my friends ordered the same salad but with shrimp on top. I t came with the shrimp on the side of the plate in some sort of sauce so you really couldn't enjoy the salad the way it was advertised. Have to say it was disappointing but the view is spectacular.
Ate from the Tapas menu and each was great. The brisket was nice and smoky, the plantains wonderful and the chicken meatballs tender and well spiced. The only issue I had was the AC, or lack of AC. It was beastly hot out and the management didn't turn it on until shortly after I got there. The first part of the evening was, to say the least, uncomfortable. However, the staff made up for the discomfort by their attentiveness.
Good place for dating or if you like tasty food or paella as well
Awful! Just awful ... They filed chapter 11 they should just close and not steal people's money.
I'd be concerned as to the cleanliness of the kitchen and the staff now. Should report to the health department.
Way too loud due to horrible acoustics. Went with friends we were catching up with but conversation was so hard.
The waiter was terrible but the bus staff extremely attentive. They almost made up for the bad waitservice.
For the second time in a row, the hostess was more than annoyed that we wanted to be seated on the main floor with a water view rather than at an upstairs table with blaring music from a DJ.
The food lacked taste and flavor. The server was wonderful but Paloma certainty has lost its appeal from its early days.
We will not return.
Food was fantastic, the seating wasn't great. There is no cover outside & while they very nicely put out an umbrella it kept moving & I noticed there was only spots for a couple umbrella's. Probably much nicer to sit outdoors & night.
Overall my husband and I had a great experience here. It was a beautiful night and eating outdoors was superb! Our server let us know she was two days new, which may have reflected in the service a bit. I liked that we were not rushed, but she also went missing at times, and at one point when our main entrees were out, we had to wait for our wine, which is disappointing as they go hand in hand. Also once it got dark we had to request a candle, as it wasn't very well lit where we were sitting, so the tables should come equipped with those and someone should go around and light them at the appropriate time. But GREAT food, fun atmosphere and great outdoor view.
Average guacamole and chips...don't waste your time. So many better things on the menu to choose. Cocktails were good as well. On the water so a nice view. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.
Tasty brunch menu. Outdoor dining at this time of year is delightful. Stamford prices.
We've been there several other times and it seems that the menu has been paired down. The food was OK but not worth the prices.
The food was excellent. The only part that was bad was when we first went there. We asked for a table and I asked about outdoor sitting and the hostess said it would be a 45 minute wait. However, she never mentioned they had the inside available. It wasn't until we saw on opentable they had slots open.
