Very busy waiter was great
I told them about husband’s birthday and in my other visits dessert was on them but other than that good times
Loved the hand made tortillas!
Made reservations 2 days before Christmas due to family plans changed. We could only get outside seating and was a bit worried due to super cold (for California, haha) and big chance of rain. We were well protected and super warm with umbrellas, heaters and we even got the Fire Pit table we were hoping for! Everyone was SO friendly and seemed happy to be there even on Christmas! From our hostess, waiter, food runner...everyone made us feel warm and welcomed! Food was DELICIOUS! Dad had a beautiful steak and my hubby and I had a perfect chicken dish (flavored so beautifully!). While Dad and hubby went for a traditional Christmas Whiskey/Sour I went this the handcrafted Jalapeño Mint Margarita(s)...yes I had 2! Thank you Palmilla Cocina for making our Christmas just perfect!
Excellent on all levels! Street tacos were awesome! Service was exceptional!
Food was upscale Mexican. It wasn’t anything to rave about especially for the price, but it was a nice choice if you’re wanting a nice evening out. The patio view was great. The service wasn’t great. While the patio area was busier, inside was not. Our dinner took over 2 hours purely because of the service. Larger groups around us were seated after us and out before us. It took 20 minutes just to get our credit card back which is a little nerve racking. He did comp our appetizer due to the wait on our card, but everything about our dinner was that way.
Food and drinks were great! Didn’t get our warm tortillas until after our food arrived.
Great food, service, ambiance, everything. Great place to go with friends, family (*maybe not families with young children though), or dates. The appetizer tortillas with the honey butter is the best.
Food was okay, but not worth the price. Server forgot a drink and a refill of tortillas. Overall, it was a 6/10 experience.
Despite of its high ratings we found the food not meeting our expectations especially the main dish. We were so disappointed. But we will try there again soon.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They didn’t rush us as we had a nice luxurious dinner experience. The food was right on as usual. Our favorite place to eat when we visit Hermosa Beach.
Great food, drinks, and service. Will definitely be back.
We had the best evening!! Thank you to the entire staff!
We went for brunch for my birthday. It was okay. Worst part was the sun was in my face most of the meal which I find pretty uncomfortable. Guacamole was mediocre. Combo of cheese enchilada and Chile relleno was okay. Cheese enchilada was not good ... too much tortilla, kind of dry, not enough cheese. Chili relleno was the best part of it. Strawberry margarita was good. Service was good tho ... prob won’t go back for it was only okay.
Price was reasonable but on the high side. Overall it was a great dining experience!
Service was like no other. The best I’ve ever experienced, I got my food in less than 15 min after ordering. The food was amazing in itself. Shrimp and dungeness crap enchiladas are breathtaking.
Palmilla is local favorite spot of mine. It was fantastic the other night, thank you.
Service and atmosphere is great but the food is just so wonderful. Everything is the best here!
Our server was fantastic. The food was fresh but I personally wished it had more flavor.
My cousins were visiting from Finland and we wanted to treat them to a beautiful evening at Palmilla on the patio at sunset. Everyone was so accommodating and wonderful. We even were treated to the fire pit for cocktails with our Charlie Doodle. Our Doodle loves Palmilla, too! Brian took excellent care of us! He always has great recommendations. The food and cocktails are delicious and very unique and special. My family LOVED IT!! We look forward to our next visit!
We love Palmilla! The nicest and sweetest people working there. Delicious food. Our waiter recommended the churros for dessert and they did not disappoint. Best cocktails for sure!
Place was very lively. A bit expensive but due to the high foot traffic area by the hermosa pier. I would eat here again for sure. A pint of beer at $7 was no bargain
My girlfriends and I choose a brunch spot once a month. I had enjoyed my experiences several times before so I decided to select Palmilla for this month since my guests had never been. I was so embarrassed by the service and the food, I will not recommend it again. I'm very disappointed.
Mike was our server and he was great!! Knew the drinks very well and have great advice on the menu! We had a great time!
One of the best spots in hermosa beach! Thanks for another great meal palmilla
Great homemade tortillas and drinks. Have liked everything I have ordered!
Our waiter Eric was amazing! All of the staff are great! They were dealing with brunch guests that did not want to leave, and Eric placed us at a table for 4, so we watched the crowds walk by, and sipped margarita’s!!! Amazing day, great food, always the best service!!!
Always a great experience
Finally found a real Mexican place in the Southbay that has more than bar food. Try the garlic shrimp awesome
Great atmosphere and location. Drinks and food were delicious especially the honey butter with warm homemade tortillas! Visiting from the East coast but would eat there a lot if I could!
The drinks are great! The down side is that the food used to be really good... going downhill.
Amazing hand crafted margaritas!
The best gourmet mex food in LA
To crowded small. And waiters have no respect when you are with you companion this place is for rowdy and single ppl not a place to take you wife or girlfriend.!
Took my wife for a spontaneous Sat night date. Parking in the area sucks during weekend prime time, and the bar it seems gets quite loud, but given the runway-style layout with the dining room in the back, the bar scene made for more entertainment than nuisance. All 6 dishes we ordered were excellent (we rarely feel that across the board), the staff were so so nice and attentive, and the place has a neat, chic design of sorts that I can’t quite describe but was very nice. Pro tip: request a booth and sit next to each other for a more romantic/hear-to-hear-each-other experience. We’ll ride share next time, but there’ll definitely be a next time.
Cool spot with some of the best cocktails we’ve had. Awesome mojitos and margaritas.
We had great food and service at Palmilla Cocina Y Tequila the other night! As always, the food was outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the skirt steak and salmon. Eric was a fantastic server. Thank you for another great evening at Palmilla!
My boyfriend and I had brunch at this restaurant. It was his first time here and he loved the food and the customer service we were given. We will definitely be back for dinner!
This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to anywhere. Its gorgeous inside plus has great patio seating! It’s trendy, fun , & clean with excellent service! The menu is extensive! The margaritas are fantastic & really perfectly crafted! I have not had a bad dish- some of the favorites- chili relleno, chimichanga and chicken mole! Their guacamole is amazing too!!
