    I have always loved Paloma Blanca! The food is great, a little pricier than before, but that's what you get with inflation. The ambiance is good, but the acoustics may cause challenges for listening to group conversations. My main complaint is the parking. I think there is more seating available than spaces you can park in. I don't suggest making a left turn off of Broadway into the parking lot. The entrance space is narrow and it causes for disaster when another vehicle is trying to pull out while you're pulling in. Enter in the parking lot another way to be on the safe side.

    Birthday lunch for my wife was excellent at Paloma Blanca. The restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Monday, but the service was great. My wife had the ‘09 Enchiladas plate, I had the Enchiladas Verdes lunch plate and my son had the Flautas lunch plate. The food was great and fresh. Since we sat outside, there were quite a bit of flies but not a deal breaker. One of the guests did have a lap dog which was discouraging given that there is plenty of signage that prohibits pets.

    My reservation was for outdoor seating. When we got there they were going to seat us inside. I had to tell theyI requested outside. We had to wait for them to set up an outside table. In the end they did make it right. Just surprised they didn’t know about the request

    Bright a friend from out of town here for dinner. I reserved a table the night before on Opentable. We arrived on time, requested seating that not really close to other diners and got a great outdoor table (a mist fan was nearby and wonderful). Our service was prompt and the waiter answered our questions about the menu. They happened to be out of the redfish my friend ordered but the delish guacamole (that’s prepared table-side) and went great with the fish tacos she ordered. The scenery was beautiful, the music at the right level, the wine was good and overall a great dining experience.

    Great ambiance outside on patio. Service was good, food was pretty good (lunch soup/enchilada combo). I was frustrated that I could not talk to a human in advance of my reservation to confirm outdoor seating, which was critical for my guest. My guest unfortunately arrived before me, and it did not sound like the seating experience was very organized, which made it appear I had not prepared very well (when in fact I called twice over the last week, failing to reach a human to confirm the reservation and outdoor seating). Experience day-of was good, though.

    Been going here for weekend brunch for at least two decades. Always exceptional egg dishes. So popular the wait line is usually long, so I made a reservation this time. Arrived to find the parking lot empty. The reason? When we were seated we were told they no longer offer brunch. Wait staff said many customers are unhappy and have not returned. Count me among them. Won’t be back.

    We drive in from our home in Georgetown specifically to have lunch at PB. It's 120 miles of anticipation for us. When the weather permits, we enjoy the patio seating among the greenery. However, in summer we choose the ambiance of PB indoors. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We chose the 3-course lunch special advertised via our email account. The soups, the entrees, the desserts were superb. Of course we will return.

    8/3 during restaurant week, and it took 55 minutes from sitting down to the food served. Soup was served with entrée because it was forgotten. The quality of the restaurant menu options served was very good. My partners fajitas were merely average at best, grilled onions and peppers could’ve been grilled a few minutes longer.

    When I arrived at 10:45 am for my reservation, I was told by the hostess that they didn’t open until 11:00 and they no longer served brunch on the weekends. This was a real disappointment since we have been coming to Paloma’s for years for the brunch on the first Saturday of each month. They did accommodate us at 11 with a table but the menu did not have any of the usual brunch items listed so we just ordered from I consider their regular menu. Now we will have to find a new restaurant to meet at on the first Saturday. Paloma’s is still one of my favorite restaurants but the loss of the brunch is disappointing. I wish they had sent out an email noting the cancellation of brunch. I am on their email list. Apparently, brunch was discontinued about two weeks ago according to our server.

    We have been going here for years but have noticed a slippage of quality. The ambiance and service continue to be good but the food isn't as spot on as it always was. Pollo Asado had tough overcooked chicken and skimpy dessicated mushrooms. The food was cool as well. That is a peeve of mine.when they tell you "be careful the plate is very hot", but the food is lukewarm. I realize restaurants are having staffing issues but this was very disappointing.
