    They have the best guac but even better than that is the chicken mole. I have never had something infused with so many flavors that can compliment each other. It’s unlike any other Mike I’ve had before and I get it every time.

    My friend and I went for early dinner and the food was amazing I been in Mexico so many times and I think Palomas BK is the closest or I could say the better you can get in NY the food taste fresh and the drinks… delicious we had the restaurant week special menu and for the price was a lot of food, the Chamorro and Emoladas you will lick you fingers, the creme brûlée de elote got me speechless, I will give 10/10 to the service they are very friendly and attentive I definitely coming back for more from Palomas BK.

    This is an awesome restaurant- great atmosphere and delicious food! The best we had during our visit! Guacamole and chicken Mole were fabulous. The cocktails - especially the Margaritas- were outstanding! We will be back for this little gem! Our waitress, Boston, was super too!

    Food was excellent and the ambiance was nice. The waiter was wonderfully attentive. The music was enjoyable & not overpowering that we couldn’t have a conversation. We were allowed to enjoy our meal, sit & talk without feeling pressure to leave right away.

    Palomas blew our minds! We hadn’t had such delicious Mexican food since our trip to Mexico City a few years ago. Everything was flavored perfectly, and the portion sizes are generous. We had the fish tacos, which are filled to the brim. The chicken mole was outstanding and came with the fluffiest rice I’ve ever had. The squash blossom quesadilla is great for anyone who loves an entire garden of vegetables in their quesadilla - ME. We had an early dinner, so we even got to enjoy happy hour priced margaritas until 7. Incredible experience dining here!

    I decided to try this restaurant for restaurant week 2021. I had checked their special week menu online and I was happy to see all the options available. When I went to the restaurant, I was disappointed to find out that it was all a lie. Half their options were removed. It felt like they put up a fake menu to make people want to visit since they are a fairly new restaurant (February 2021). For appetizer I ordered the pork belly taco which was great. The pork belly was crispy and tasty. For dinner, I ordered the enchiladas. It lacked flavor and sauce. It was basically a taco with cheese and seafood. I do not recommend it. Who messes up enchiladas? Lastly for dessert, I ordered the churro with ice cream. It was good but portion size was tiny. Overall, if you are going for Mexican food, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Overall the place is great, however the food could have been better. The food was very salty and overall nothing something you would expect from Mexican food. I think the place could do better since they have a great ambiance and good drinks.

    Overall great place, food was delicious and ambiance was cool, although there wasn’t many people there so it just felt empty. We got there at 6:45 and stayed until 8 and only a couple other people came.

    We enjoyed ourselves. The drinks were unique and interesting. The host could’ve been friendlier. Our waiter was superb but I guess he started his shift after our arrival time so he was only at our table for half of our seating. The dj was a nice touch but they need to adjust the sound so that it’s loud but also clear or smoother. It seemed to overtake the whole place instantly. Lastly I dislike any place that has a time limit on a table especially if we are spending money. Overall I’d return and I’d recommend because the small issues I had were not of major concern.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my mom’s birthday at Palomas! Service was excellent, professional but unpretentious. Cocktails were exceptional; we especially enjoyed the Death from Below, a complex but delicious drink for the spice lover. Great guacamole and esquites to start, and we followed with lots of delicious small plates and an order of the mole (I want the recipe!) Delicious dessert specials too! The interior is beautiful though we chose to eat outdoors and they were kind enough to accommodate and took all safety measures very seriously. Can’t wait to come back for brunch!
