    Ask for Ramiro if he’s at the restaurant. He’s been in the hospitality business for 30 years. He knows what to do to keep you happy. La Paloma is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I hope you will enjoy it too!!

    Not the dining experience we are used to at Paloma Blanca. Reservations were made 2 weeks in advance. We were celebrating a birthday. Requested seating that captured a nice energy for a special time together with family. We were seated in the separate section beyond the main restaurant. It did not feel special...like an overflow section in a temporary space with worn furniture. Food was good and the service was great. We'll return, but this time was disappointing.

    Food was excellent, we got there just after lunch for an early dinner, there were a few lunch lingerers around, but they left before we did. We had pollo asado and an esmeralda sp? salad with chicken for our entrees and a side of queso and chips and 2 house margaritas. All was excellent including the service. It was reasonably priced and is one of our favorite mexican restaurants.

    Great ambiance. Great presentation on plates. Food was cold. Ordered appetizer queso fundido and our tortillas were cold and stale. Then dinner plates came around and food was all cold Same issue with the enchiladas the tortillas were hard and cold so the hot sauce on them separated. Our waitress forgot about us for a long while. Felt a bit un attended. Would have ordered another Paloma which was good but she never came back til she brought us our total. Celebrated a birthday and it felt like we wasted our night.

    My family and I had an exceptional time during our dinner. The restaurant staff quickly sat us upon our arrival, and we were delighted by the prompt service we received throughout the evening. Even though it was a busy weekend, our drinks, appetizers, and main courses were served remarkably quickly. Overall, it was a delightful dining experience that we won't soon forget.

    Every month or so, we drive into SA to eat at PB. The food is always excellent. This time was less than perfect. The shoe string French fries with my fried seafood dinner were room temp, not warm, certainly not hot. The chips and salsa were promised but did not arrive before the meal. We had to ask twice for them. The waiter apologized and we appreciate such. Further, we know that mistakes happen. This was the first set of mistakes in our PB history and we were surprised.

    You come here for the atmosphere, and in this city, finding a place with a great atmosphere is hard to find. I've tried several dishes here, and it's hard to select anything wrong. Paloma's house creams (Chipotle and Cilantro) are definitely a favorite of mine. Great places for a date, or for family. They have rooms for bigger groups, and you'll that each room has its own unique ambience. Lovely place.
