Feels very authentic Santa Fe. We had top shelf margs and 4 appetizers. All were superb. Lovely staff. Great ambience.
Once I tasted the roasted chicken, I forgot everything else I had eaten. Superb.
Great dining experience! Lately food and service at restaurants around town has been pretty disappointing, but Paloma was a breath of fresh air. Everything, from the super friendly and welcoming staff, to the really delicious food, to the nice ambiance, exceeded my expectations. I’m so happy to have discovered this place; I’ll definitely go back and highly recommend.
The food and drinks were delicious. I would highly recommend Paloma to anyone visiting Santa Fe.
If you want to experience the rich flavors and warm vibrant soul of Santa Fe look no father!
Menu was amazing, the chief was inspired and the service was outstanding, thank you Nicolas! Warm electric Vibe that was tantalizing to the pallet, Fresh local ingredients the menu flowed together like a dance, I couldn’t stop ordering ! My recommendation.... TRY EVERYTHING, oh don’t miss out on an impressive mezcal menu!
Simple put Paloma is Santa FE
Love this place !! Probably the only place I ever want to eat dinner when in Santa Fe. Ceviche was perfection. Yum yum.
From the moment we stepped inside we were graciously greeted with smiles from the servers. The ambiance and the interior was fantastic. The bar and the marigolds draped on the Edison lightbulb chandeliers was enchanting. I started with the Marigold Margarita. It did not disappoint. We got the salsa and guacamole appetizer. All the salsa’s were freshly made. Then the sea bass tacos! You have to try,l! We ordered the lamb barbacoa and the lamb special. I recommend getting their desserts as well. We had a baby with us and they all came by to say hello. Not snobby at all. Food and service was phenomenal. It was the highlight of Santa Fe. We are thinking of stopping here again on our way back from our road trip.
One of my favorite restaurants in Santa Fe! They've done a great job extending their outside, Covid19 friendly dining and making it festive.
Table 52 was a great location. We wanted distancing from others. Waiter was wonderful! Rice was salty .. ick
Its a great looking space. The drinks and every part of the meal were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You wont go wrong.
Such a fabulous restaurant in all ways!
The tamarind toddy is perfect for this fall weather amazing flavor combinations!
We LOVE Paloma! The staff is incredible, everything is so fresh. They usually have specials, but one of the best is crispy sea bass tacos....delicious! Highly recommend!!
Great food! Nice drinks! Nice spot in Santa Fe and excellent staff. Observing proper safe distancing as well.
We were seated inside at first until our table was ready outside as we had outside reservations for 6. The food was delicious however we did have one entrée that was served 20 minutes after the other ones due to a order mix up by the wait person. The wait person took that entrée off the bill and brought some queso while we waited which was nice. When the bill came we paid and added a nice gratuity. We figured out after we left, the gratuity had already been included. So the wait person received a very, very nice gratuity. No one said anything about the gratuity being included for parties of 6. We had a pleasant experience with the exception of the gratuity situation.
Favorite place in Santa Fe. The patio is really nice during this crazy time. Same great food and service as always
Amazing dinner. Every single dish was fabulous. I'd eat here every week if I could.
Consistently some of the best and most innovative cuisine in Santa Fe.
We loved eating on the patio at Paloma. The food was delicious. The service was friendly and well-informed. We enjoyed our dinner.
Wonderful food, amazing ambiance - would highly recommend!!!
The food is absolutely amazing, our server made our night!! We took some friends there for their first time and they were very impressed!!
*slow tequila clap*
The food was excellent. Our waitress had zero personality and service was slow. The music was too loud.
Great food and service. Margaritas are excellent too!
A neighborhood gem. Always great service and food. Try it!
I dined here for my 40th Birthday, just a party of 2. Don’t make that mistake. The food is mediocre at best. We finished our salad course and our entrees without our server ever coming back to the table. Overall, just really disappointing.
Paloma is fighting hard to stay in the SF food mix despite the governor's draconian lockdowns. Their patio is very pleasant and the Mexican inspired food offerings are excellent. House made chips and salsas are great.
This is really a perfect restaurant. A very pleasant, outdoor seating area, knowledgeable wait staff, and great food. The menu isn't big, but I could happily have ordered anything on the menu. We shared the black bean nachos as an appetizer. It works as salad, as well...there is so much fresh lettuce and avocado topping the delicious nachos. The tacos were first rate. We ate here 2 nights during our 5 night in Santa Fe. It's that good.
Currently, all restaurants in Santa Fe have to seat their patrons outdoors, which leads to a lot of parking lots, sidewalks and alleys being places for restaurant seating. Not their fault, but we were in a parking lot with a lot of road noise and very aggressive flies. Our waiter was terrific, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was mediocre. We had heard great things about the restaurant's food from friends, but my barbacoa was fatty and had a large amount of gristle it in. We'll give the restaurant one more try when things in Santa Fe are back to normal to see if there is an improvement.
Solid food, super friendly server and quality tequila to finish off the experience.
Overall, we had a great experience! You can tell they put a lot of effort into transforming a driveway into an attractive (albeit slanted!) outdoor dining area. We had the salsa & queso (YUM!), street corn (outstanding!), fish tacos (A+++) and green chili burger (decent but bad bread). The Paloma was a tasty cocktail and the churros were the perfect finish.
Paloma is one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Fe! The food and drinks are delicious, beautiful, and sophisticated. And Marja is an incredibly gracious host. Thank you for another lovely dinner!
We sat on the patio and the setting was lovely. I highly recommend the ceviche and the caesar salad! And the mezcal margarita!
We will be back for sure! The drinks and tacos were outstanding!!! Service excellent. Good social distancing and back patio with plenty of shaded spots.
Best food in a looong time. Had the prawns, ceviche, sea bass and cauliflower tacos (the tacos were amazing). Will definitely recommend to anyone wanting an exceptional Mexican cuisine experience in Santa Fe.
Great food and they have worked hard to make outdoor dining a positive experience in this crazy world we live in right now.
However....our server pretty much ignored us...we probably waited
20 minutes for the check, and that was after we asked another server for assistance. That part was extremely disappointing...this is the first time this has happened at Paloma.
During this time of COVID the restaurant is doing everything to keep you safe and the food/drinks are superb!!
My favorite place to eat here in Santa Fe. The food, drinks, service and atmosphere are outstanding.
Pretty patio with good spacing for the Covid-19 outdoor dining experience. All staff wore masks and diners were also required to mask coming and going. The margaritas were creative and delicious as was the fresh ceviche.
All around fantastic experience. Food and drinks were delicious, and I will be returning for them both.
