Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.

I love the food at Paloma Blanca, but the noise levels are getting too high. Probably will not go on a weekend again.

Reserved through OpenTable and when we arrived at our reservation time, our table wasn’t ready. Ended up waiting an extra 30 minutes for a table that was “reserved” for us. Hostesses were not great about handling the situation.

We dined at Paloma Blanca at noon during San Antonio restaurant week just to try a new dining experience. Parking is almost non existent for patrons of the restaurant prior to 5:00 pm. We finally found a parking place in the rear just by luck. I think most people had to park on the street.
We were seated promptly in a room to the rear of the restaurant where the noise level was not too bad. There is a good amount of outdoor dining space where noise would not be an issue.
We were served water and chips and salsa almost immediately. Salsa was OK but the chips were thick and tough. The waiter took our order shortly thereafter. Here is where the experience fell apart. We waited a half hour for the appetizer. The entree was served after a shorter wait than the appetizer. The food was acceptable but nothing exceptional. After finishing our main course, we waited an extremely long time for the dishes to be cleared and our dessert served. We had to ask another server to find our waiter to help us or we would have waited even longer.
We were glad to try Paloma Blanca for a special price, but considering the parking, poor service and just OK food, we would not return for a second time.

Great food, great service. The restaurant, however, sent a message to Open Table saying we did not honor our reservation. A bit backhanded.

Great service by Ramiro. Also the Food was very delicious. The freshly prepared Guacamole and the carne asada were awesome.
We were sitting in a booth and the a/c was blowing into our necks. That was the only thing that disturbed us.

I grew up in LA and like think I know good Mexican food. This is the real deal. My wife had a chili relleno, which was delicious and big enough to share. My chicken flautas were the best I’ve ever had. Yum!

Amazing and extensive gluten-free menu. The quality of the food was phenomenal. Everything was clearly fresh and made from scratch. There were some errors in bringing food that wasn't gluten-free to the table (even though we clearly wanted to keep the meal gluten-free for medical reasons), but we recognized it before anyone got sick and the waiter was quick in fixing it. Tequila-based cocktails were fabulous.

Place was packed, our server ignored us, drinks sat empty on the table for half hour, even though other servers were walking by with full pitchers. Food came out wrong so I sent it back, only to have the exact same plate brought out to me 20 minutes later but THIS time the food was soggy and the beans were congealed. Thanks for confirming this restaurant is just as bad as we thought. We’ll take our $$ elsewhere from now on.

Uncharacteristically for this restaurant, the food was so-so; service was OK, the location is convenient for a luncheon date with friends. I am disappointed because the food had always been, if not extraordinary, at least goo.

This restaurant holds special meaning for us, as it's the site of our first date. This week we returned to celebrate our tenth anniversary. We were looking forward to an evening befitting the special occasion. The hostess, who appeared more focused on a large party that was waiting to be seated ahead of us, simply raised two fingers, to which we nodded. She whisked us to a side table. So far, so good. Our server could not have been nicer or more efficient. He was great. But then everything changed when a large, excessively loud party was seated adjacent to us. The more they drank, the loud--and more obnoxious they became. And the less we enjoyed what was planned to be a special evening. We realize the restaurant has no control over such situations. Perhaps a quiet section? (Oh, neglected to mention that the table next to the big party group had a wailing baby!) All this said, the food was delicious, as usual. And our server was absolutely lovely.

I would recommend to a friend as long as my friend did not pay in cash. I don't know if it is the restaurant's policy or just our waitress' policy, but I did not receive all my change, only the folding money. Waitress kept coins. Was not expecting this.
