Bottomless mimosas or champagne for $15!! Great brunch menu, complimentary apple honey biscuits with your meal. Service was great. They have a great dinner menu as well. Will def be back again!
Great people and service! While the name says “Tequila” (and the drinks are very good), for us it was all about the food. Huge menu selection and the food preparation and flavors are some of the best in the South Bay.
I always bring international visitors to dinner here: they can exoerience: Hermosa people watching, great drinks, outdoor dining, fantastic meal, and can walk 20 yards down the plaza to catch the sunset on Hermosa Pier. Pretty damn convenient for an all around experience.
It was delicious, but extremely too loud at dinner time. Would have preferred them to lower the volume on their music. Other than that, amazing!
Very good service, good food (not spicy or exceptional, but solid), nice decor, love the hours (finally a place that does not shut down at 10:00) and local, so easy for us. Bar is a little tight if you just want to go for a drink. Sound level is a little too high, so if you want to have a conversation at dinner, it's tough without shouting.
Great service! Hot bartenders!!
Perfect and extensive list of delicious and inventive cocktails with fresh ingredients. Food is so amazing; try the Chilean sea bass ceviche - best I've ever had. Greatest staff in the South Bay - always attentive, super helpful with recs, and always willing to cater towards the customer.
Came here with some gf’s for happy hour to celebrate my bday. Very lively and fun atmosphere. Delicious food and drinks. Servers were great! It’s pricey but worth it.
Very pricey but worth it as large portions and very tasty food, however drinks are very expensive and small with a lot of ice so not much alcohol for paying $13 a margarita. Bartender and staff are great!! Wonderful service for being very busy (they got hit all at once at lunch time). Gave us special dessert for b-day for free!
Excellent Mexican food, really enjoyed the evening although it was rather noisy with big groups dining. Service was good and helpful
Always a joy to eat here - truly a LA gem and easily the best place in Hermosa! Try a jalapeño martini!
The service by Eric and JD were OUTSTANDING! Food was superb and ambiance was phenomenal.
Great food and drinks. Service is great. Never dissapointed when we go here.
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.
I was celebrating my birthday and chose Palmilla, again! I love the atmosphere, the food and the staff. It’s always a fun evening at Palmilla!
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.
fabulous restaurant with a great staff. Not to miss when you are visiting!
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.
Hands down best jalapeño margarita around. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. I always order the chicken nachos. The absolute best !!! Great way to start my weekend !
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.
Great service and food, maybe a bit overpriced. Their homemade tortillas are amazing!
I made a reservation requesting a high chair. When we arrived, the hostess took us to our seats - no smiles or greeting - and no indication of where we can find a high chair. She then disappeared. Quite a put off. We flagged down a waiter and got directed to where we could get a high chair eventually. The service picked up a bit after (our waitress was alright).
The patio is good for people watching.
The food was good; large portions.
Loved the margaritas.
New Year’s Eve 2018
We visit Palmilla from out of town every year and are never disappointed. Excellent guacamole sampler and fajitas top notch. Try to sit outside by fire pit if you can.
Great food and service was superb. The wives liked the eye candy!! LOL
Our seating reservations were messed up so we were initially placed at an indoor table where the ambiance is geared for a younger crowd. Fortunately we were moved to an outdoor seating, but they have too many people working a single table so things got a bit screwed up. Food was good, but pricey.
A good friend was in town from Hawaii and not only did he like the food but he loved the view of the sunset while we sat outside for dinner.
I usually come for the mango jalapeno margarita. My friends and I were happy with our first meal this evening. The service was excellent.
The BEST margaritas in the beach cities!! Best to sit on the patio to enjoy the good weather and people watching. Louder inside, quiter outside. Always good food!
Nice casual restaurant located about 100 yards from Hermosa pier. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating. I sat inside but I noticed at least 2 large fire pit tables outside which would be perfect for people watching along the plaza. They have a small indoor bar with about 8 or so bar stools. Most food has a Mexican flair with a nice culinary touch using the best and freshest ingredients. I had the crusted Chilean sea bass ($36) which was superb. It came with a spicy pineapple salsa on the side but I preferred the fish without it because it did not add much and to me, it over powered the rich delicate flavor of the bass. I also had a cucumber margarita called the Diablo ($12) which was one of the best I've ever had. The Modelo Especial on draft paired well with the complimentary house salsa and fresh hot tortillas they give you at the beginning. The service and vibe was fast and fun, a bit noisy and pricey but I will come back again for a special occasion and try the bar and fire pit. I recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a fun restaurant in Hermosa with good food, drinks, service and location.
Great food, very attentive staff - no rushing us the bill trying to get us out of there.
Appetizers (short rib tacos) were filling so nobody had room for the main course. The ginger margarita was good.
No acknowledgement of special occasion (birthday) that I has specified. Difficult to get our waiter's attention at times.
One of the best restaurants I have been to in a while. Food is amazing and drinks are even better. Try everything! Lobster tacos are fantastic.
