    Great and innovative mexican cuisine, one block off the main thoroughfare in Palo Alto. Noise level elevated due to a Stanford football game, but their exceptional crafted margaritas helped to assuage the audio bombardment. Service staff knowledgeable and attentive. Street parking is a challenge but there is free underground city parking lot 50 feet from the restaurant.

    We've been to Reposado a few times before and were sad to see that they have taken the ceviche sample off the menu. But the food was generally tasty. The upside-down banana cake was amazing! We got to sit in the upper level for the first time and it was definitely quieter which made for a more enjoyable and intimate dinner. The staff was helpful. I ordered a cappuccino at the end of the meal and would have loved for the dessert and the coffee to come at the same time. That didn't happen, which was a bummer, but it was all still delicious.

    Nice interior. The service is lazy. I had a reservation and had to wait for 10 min. for hostess to show up, another 15 min. for somebody to take the order for drinks and appetizers. Food is OK, but overpriced.

    Love this restaurant. Nice ambiance, a little noisy, but the acoustics have improved greatly from the early days. Food was delicious. Delicious margaritas and best guacamole around. Cochinita was wonderful! The service was very good, and our waiter made a special effort to engage with his customers without being intrusive.

    Food was very very good. Service, however, was completely non-existent. I’ve rarely had a server not return to the table to even ask how the food turned out. Took 10 minutes for the server to reach the table for a cocktail order and required a request from us to a busboy. Busy but not acceptable.

    Didn’t taste like Spanish cuisine. Cauliflower was not grilled all the way and definitely not worth $27. Was literally served half a head of cauliflower with barely any seasoning.

    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.

    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!
