Valentines Day Special Meal for Out of Town Couple. I’ve been doing Business Lunch there for years and had to get Butter Cup there for a Special Night.

Paloma Blanca restaurant did not meet expectations. The advertisements are much exaggerated.. We were expecting a true more coastal and interior Mexico menu.. not so much Tex-Mex like hundreds other Mexican restaurants in San Antonio. Suggest you look at Javier's menu in Dallas.

Food and service far exceeded expectations for everyone at our table. Highly recommended.

Great food and service! Even though we missed restaurant week, our server was able to get the chef to make that special for us (pablano pepper based).

15 is a difficult group to handle but they did! Warning though. This is a popular place so don’t expect to give a talk to a large group here...too noisy. Knew this before we went so wasn’t an issue for my group.

waiter was able to fill my order; not on the menu
We were pleased with the service, but room was very loud

Brunch is fantastic. This was my second trip in three weeks and both times were great. Our server Ruth was attentive, but gave us space. The manager Oscar was paying attention and stopped by to make sure everything went well. When you first pull up, you do not expect much, but then you see the big outdoor patio and you do not realize you are in the shopping center. The pitcher of margarita was a little overpriced compared to the rest of the meal, but we really enjoyed it. Save a little from for the flan. It's worth it. A big thumbs up from someone who is fairly picky.

The food is usually pretty good, but on this occasion I ordered a "Carne Tampiqueña" which is a lean, relatively thin filet of beef. I got a thick, greasy piece full of grizzle. When I spoke to the manager about it, he tried to convince me that what I got was a "Tampiqueña". I am Mexican, I know what a "Tampiqueña" is and if the restaurant is serving what I received as "Tampiqueña" they are misrepresenting the dish to their clientele. He took my plate back to clean it a bit to get rid of the grizzle, but I still could not eat it. I was offered to send it back and order something else, but by then I was not hungry anymore. I was charged the full $22.00 for it, I complained to the same manager and he deducted $10.00, so I paid $12.00 for something I did not eat.

We have been going to this restaurant for the past 9 years. We were there to celebrate our anniversary. As we do every single year since 2009. The food is great but it's sad to say that each server that we have gotten every year that we return is less-than-stellar. That was the only disappointment but other than that the food is great

We came in from out of state during Winter Restaurant Week for a medical conference on the Riverwalk. However when looking at participating restaurants and star ratings on Yelp we found Paloma Blanca had a great rating, solid compliments and the menu looked amazing. We used Uber to get over - the ride was worth it!! Their ceviche is definitely the best I’ve EVER had! My friend having never tried it, being skiddish of “fish items” she doesn’t know LOVED it. The homemade guacamole was AHHMAZING! We chose to have their “The Works” fajitas by the pound for our table - so much food we couldn’t finish it between the 3 of us. However that didn’t stop us from trying the Tres Leche cake - OMG!! We almost licked the plate!! This place is a great local place to definitely put on your list for ambience, food, and local flair. Everyone was polite and attentive! I want to go back!

Very tasty Mexican interior cuisine. Four different chili rellanos on the regular menu plus one on the special menu. Tex-Mex places seldom offer this dish. Waiter was very friendly and attentive.

We had shrimp tacos, beef fajita. They both are good. Beef was especially tender. Charro bean soup was satisfying good. Our waiter was also attentive. I saw the men at the next table were having tortilla soup, I will definitely order the soup next time when we visit San Antonio again.

Our server was awesome. He was very attentive and ready at a moment’s notice. His name escapes me at the moment but I did know it while there. My brain.... the food was wonderful and the portions were more than adequate. Paloma Blanca is one of our favorite San Antonio restaurants and we will be back.

This was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to in San Antonio, the services and food was excellent one of the best. I made a reservation online and the staff accommodated my request. One of the perfect nights for my special occasion.

Great server who managed to make everyone feel welcome on a very busy Friday night. Everyone enjoyed their food and appreciate the ability to reserve a table.
