    Previously, I had been to Reposado in multiple arranged, large group gatherings. This is the first time that I experienced the restaurant as a more conventional table for two. As such, I found the restaurant to be terrific. The food was simply outstanding, in its flavors, seasoning, portions & presentation. Service became a bit more spotty as the dining hall filled up with patrons, but overall we had very good experience and will be sure to return.

    1. Too noisy for conversation. 2. Disappointed that to make reservation, needed to provided credit card to be charged $25 per guest that do not show up for the reservation. This requirement is not customer friendly, leaving customers to concluded that they are only interested in money not good service.

    If you want modern twists on Mexican cuisine or great tequilas this is your place. Elegant dining to casual, you are covered here. I've been back 4 times and have never been disappointed. Seafood dishes are spectacular.

    I really enjoy this restaurant but will not be making reservations in the future. They charge $25 if you need to cancel reservation with less than 24 hour notice. I support a fee for No Show but in this Covid world too many things can happen like someone in your party getting sick or having exposure risk to Covid and needing to quarantine. I will still eat here but using stand-by waiting and if wait is too long there are numerous other restaurants in the area. That said, the food was delicious and service was excellent.

    Wonderful service and excellent quality food! Love coming here!! We discovered this place since we moved to Palo Alto in 2010 and have always loved the food and lively atmosphere. If you don’t have reservations…grab a seat at the awesome bar instead and enjoy the show, watching the very busy bartenders at work, while you relax and indulge in some drinks and their delicious food!! You won’t be disappointed!

    Had a wonderful dinner here. The short rib dinner was so tasty along with the pureed sweet potatoes. It was moderately noisy due to several parties, but because of the wonderful high ceilings, the noise level was very tolerable. There is a terrific sense of openness in the restaurant with open tall windows. Will come again often.

    Food was basic for the price. Nothing notable. The chips were 100% from a bag and not even freshly made. If I'm going to spend $270 for two people, I want fresh chips and tacos that are better than a taco truck. $19 for straight meat on 4 small tortillas. Drinks were spectacular so the food quality has some catching up to do.

    We come here all the time. Somehow, they manage to fit us in and we really appreciate it. I won’t lie to you, the prices are high. The people are all lovely, they never remember us, but the vibe and atmosphere are also exactly what we look for. Go to Reposado if you are looking for a great margarita, a lively atmosphere, good food, and a fun evening with those you love. At the end of the evening, just close your eyes and pay the crazy bill. Life is short and sweet!

    The lobster taco was tasty with a generous portion of lobster. The crepas had a mild green cream sauce that was perfect with the lobster, prawn, fish filling and slightly crisp crepe. Service was timely and responsive. A relaxed Father's Day/Juneteenth, pre-concert meal.

    The food here is INCREDIBLE. came here about 5 years ago and knew this was the place to go for a graduation dinner for my fiancé. The Seafood Crepes are so scrumptious and the queso is the best bite of food I’ve ever had maybe. It’s a little pricy but worth it. The margaritas are also fabulous. I got the spicy marg and yes yes yes so perfect

    Food, as always, was excellent. The Service not so good. Frankly, I’m tired of hearing that’s due to Covid! Our server explained to us that he too many tables, can’t find enough staff. Owner: Don’t take so many reservations then! Or pay more to get staff! Dining at a restaurant such as this, is not just about the food. It’s great food and great service! (And ambience). Will not return anytime soon. Fortunately there are still restaurateurs out there that get it…

    We have dined here multiple times before with good experience. The last reservation we made we didn't actually get to dine as we were seated on a table literally on the walkway between two tables and near the entrance door. I sat and the people who had just finished their meal walked past by me and I almost got an elbow on my face. We just knew it wasn't going to be an enjoyable meal so we got up and kindly let the hosts know that we're not going to enjoy dinner tonight and left. Hoping next time will not be the same experience.
