Wonderful food. I had the quesadilla marisco and would highly recommend it. All of my part loved their food. Only problem was the noise level. For a friends' get together, I would prefer a place where you can hear the person next to you.

Went for brunch- food was amazing and bottomless mimosa . Overall a great time. Only bad part was it was really loud inside, felt like we were screaming to have a conversation .

Excellent night out at Palmilla! Great table, great service, and totally inventive menu! Food was delicious and perfectly prepared. The margarita martinis with a little jalapeño flavor were excellent!

My grandson, my late husband and I have dined at Palmilla everytime we have visited Hermosa for years. Now my grandson and I are continuing that tradition. The food is exceptional as is the service. I have to avoid wheat/gluten. The waitstaff sees I am served their homemade corn tortillas with appetizers and entrees. I don't know about their flour tortillas, but the corn ones are the best I have eaten anywhere. Try the fish tacos, a favorite of ours, as again, they are the best!

Kitchen closes on Sunday's after 1 and not open again until 2:30, brunch menu only. None of the regular favorite options.

I was on vacation in LA and I went to Palmilla 3 times in a week. Great food and drinks. Really nice looking restaurant and friendly staff.

Local fave, great outdoor seating but just as nice inside when the weather is inclement. They have inexpensive small dishes, apps and also foodie worthy entree's. The prawns are amazing but a bit pricey. Great place, I go often.

Ambiance was great, food was very good. People were very friendly. A little pricey but I can live with that. Only issue was we were told we had to leave before our desert came - they made us take it to go. I spent over $300.00 for dinner and did not expect to be told I had to take my desert to go. Other than that, it was a fun night.

Great drinks, food, and service! Loved the homemade tortillas and served with the honey butter was a different touch. Great team work from the waitstaff. We live out of state, but wished we lived in the area so we could go back and try other items. Saw the Guacamole Festival Tasting pass by and it looked amazing.

We had a great experience. The food was great. The restaurant has a no corkage fee if you bring a bottle of wine from Uncooked, a local wine shop.
