Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
Upscale Mexican. Lovely patio. Warm fireplace. Great marguerita with choice of tequila. First time I had mole and it was great. The fajitas were standard. But the quacamole made at the table was delicious. Great ambience if you are looking for more than a quick Mexican meal.
Dining at Paloma Blanca is always a nice experience; this visit was no exception. The food is reliably delicious and the cocktails are well prepared. My only quibble about this most recent visit was the service: it was unusually slow and verging on inattentive (this is not to imply our waiter wasn't friendly -- quite the contrary: he was cheery). Otherwise, a terrific lunch at a budget-friendly price.
We were seated at a table with direct sun in eyes. Hostess didn't seem to care. Food good as always but server was no where to be seen for a long time when we were going to ask for the check. Patron next to us was also annoyed by long wait. We will be back though. Love the food!
The food is always good. Wait staff is usually good. The hostess is usually awful, forgetting reservations, not crediting open table reservations. I have had to call and have this corrected more than once. When you call the restaurant the person who answers the phone does not state their name. When I asked to speak with a manager the response was "you're going to have to wait awhile".
I would probably spend my money here more often if the service were a little more friendly.
Also, I was told my small 7 pound service dog was not allowed to sit outside, although it was on the reservation. I wouldn't recommend anticipating excellent service at this restaurant, but remember...this is not the Northeast..it is, after all, San Antonio.
Enjoyable meal with mixed results. The magharita 09 was excellent and would recommend and so was the guacamole made at the table. Both are definite repeats. My husband had the chili relleno, baked and stuffed with chicken - wonderful taste and healthy choice. I had the enchiladas 09 - they were a disappointing as the sauces were a bit bland. Will definitely go again, but will choose chili relleno or another variety of enchiladas.
My friend and I enjoyed a "catch up" lunch at Paloma Blanca. They have several nice lunch specials and we had a grilled chicken breast with creamy poblano sauce, rice and fresh vegetables. They offer wonderful margaritas by the carafe and we spent a leisurely afternoon talking out on the patio. I look forward to going again soon.
Glad we decided to check reviews and give this place a try rather than just going to the old usuals on the Riverwalk.
The 09 margarita is one of the best I've ever had.
The table side guacamole was good.
I had the carne asada tampiqueno and it was terrific! Very tender and perfectly cooked.
Saves room for tres leches cake, which was moist and delicious.
This is definitely on our places to return to.
