I have been here many times, and it is ALWAYS a great experience. I love sitting outside, even when it gets chilly (they have heaters). Their margaritas are absolutely divine. The food is the best I have ever had. The wait staff is great, personable, and attentive. I cannot recommend this place enough.
Great menu from a very talented chef. Excellent service staff.
tacos camaron were great, raspberry mango blended mojito was amazing!
The service was good the food was good but the flies were awful they told us they cannot get rid of the flies so the whole time we were eating we were shooing flies away which I found extremely unhealthy and extremely annoying. Unless they can correct this problem I will never be back
Love this place, always great service and yummy food!!
Very cool spot where everyone looks beautiful! The lighting and decor are forgiving and fabulous!
Its a bit loud so don't expect an intimate conversation, but after a few delicious margaritas, who cares.
I love the cool vibe and fun outdoor patio. The food was great and the spicy margaritas are fantastic. We had the ceviche sampler and shrimp enchiladas and both were excellent. We eat here every couple of months.
Food was good but not great- servers were friendly and attentive.
The food and drinks were excellent and the table and seating were comfortable and lovely atmosphere. HOWEVER, as much as I admire this restaurant, the noise from the bar crowd was deafening. The decimal meter was off the charts. So, either go for lunch or definitely have an outdoor table unless you are with people whom you would rather not converse with. Noise canceling headphones would be useless here.
Delicious cocktails and food, great view from the patio, attentive waiters, beautiful people!
This is my favorite go-to in Hermosa! I live in San Diego and found out about this place when my best friend used to live in the area. The past weekend my boyfriend and I drove up to Long Beach to visit her but before we did, we stayed the night in redondo and made our way to the reservations here. He loved it like I knew he would. You seriously cannot go wrong with this place for food or drinks!
Sat at the bar window. Rocky was our server. He is awesome! Always friendly and on top of things. Makes amazing drinks and keeps them coming! He rocked! Ps loved the tortillas and honey butter!
Amazing service and a fun array of cocktail selections and the food is delicious too!
Great food. Will come back again.
Sudden arrival of a few too many flies to relax and enjoy our lunch. The place was busy and there were not enough servers. This doesn't happen often. Service was very slow and not attentive. We didn't get the service we are used to at this establishment.
A. M. A. Z. I. N. G. as always. Celebrated anniversaries with dear out of town friends. Best spicy margaritas
Waiter argued with how to make a margarita without agave syrup and then charged $25. Food was Average at best and expensive compared to most restaurants in the area. We are local, our out of town friends suggested the place and were equally disappointed.
We come for our anniversary every year and the manager and servers always make sure it’s special! Wonderful meal and evening.
Great food and great service! Drinks are overpriced.
We had both breakfasts and lunches. Great and delicious. Very friendly atmosphere. Quantity was plentiful.
Bar tables need new chairs. The chairs tilt . Noise is very loud !
Great upscale Mexican dining spot in Hermosa. Service was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was excellent and drinks were even better! Definitely coming back soon.
Food was average; drink selection was excellent ; great service; nice ambiance
Love this place the other dozen times I came and brought friends....tonight we got jammed in the back of the restaurant, with tables of mixed height, blocking the waiters path to food pickup. When I asked to be reseated I was told everything I did wrong in making my reservation(?)....”you booked for 4 then changed to 6”, he was correct, I did that because on Open Table I couldn’t book a party larger than 4, so we spoke on the phone and I was told the patio was too full but inside would be fine. I was never told we’d be squeezed into the back. The gentleman who seated us should have steered clear of “blame the customer” and simply looked into what he could do and just apologize and perhaps gratis us an appetizer.
Our waiter really stepped up and gave us the great usual attention. The drinks are always good as it the food!
Chris our server saved our experience. Top notch service and excellent food
I've always enjoyed dining here for the beach-side location, the complimentary home made tortillas and other delicious offerings but recently, the service has been pretty bad, quality of food has decreased and no fresh tortillas when you sit down. One time they tried to pass store bought ones as their home made ones. Margaritas are still the best, but other than that I have no desire to come back.
The food was delicious! The service was great, and the ambience was pleasant.
The corn and chicken tamale was very very good. I enjoyed the whole dining experience.
They are truly accommodating at Palmilla. They get busy sometimes but always aim to please, and the beverages and food are excellent.
Extensive, creative menu. To die for warm flour tortillas to start and amazing cocktail choices.
The food is so delicious and satisfying. The best taquitos ever, light and no trace of greasiness. Can't wait to go back.
Reserved a table early to get the late afternoon beach vibe, the day slowing down, and not yet busy at this great restaurant. It packs in the active crowds as normal dinner and after-dinner time arrives. The plates were awesome today. My salmon was extraordinary, perfectly done inside with a slight crisp char on the outside. The sea bass dish was excellent also. The fish meat was cooked just right, leaving it tender and light and very tasty. The other plates were typical Mexican fare of burritos and tacos with beans and vegetables. The portions were huge and tasted great.
Yummy and great staff!
We love going to Palmilla! We are never disappointed with the service— as it is always stellar. Nice people —every one we’ve encountered! The food, as always, was fabulous! They have some really interesting preparations, the food is fresh and very good. Compliments to the Chef on never disappointing. We will be (and are) back again soon! It gets a little loud when they are full...but it’s never too much. Love this place and highly recommend.
Super excellent Mexican food. Some of the best we have ever had anywhere! Very cute decor. Nice outdoor seating. Friendly and prompt staff.
The food and service was outstanding. This is my forth time eating Palmilla.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Palmilla! The service was great and the food was amazing! I would say it’s a bit on the pricey side, but the food is delicious! The homemade flour tortillas were a huge hit. The drinks are delicious and refreshing- I ordered the raspberry mojito and my boyfriend ordered the spicy pineapple margarita. Overall, we had a wonderful date night at Palmilla.
Awesome evening. Waiter is super. Let’s make a second Palmilla in Miami !!
Had a great time! A real go to place for us in Hermosa Beach. Good food n unique cocktails. A must go if you’re in the area.
Overcharged for negra modelo. $9.25 for a draft! Menu says $8.75 or $8.50.
We loved celebrating Mother’s Day there! The food was amazing. Servers were very attentive. I loved getting the peacock chair!
