Reposado Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
As out-of-town visitors, Reposado was recommended by a local who said it served delicious food. We agree. It was lively and full of Stanford families (this was the Friday before graduation) but the large family groups in no way slowed down service or delayed our meal. We loved it and would go back should we find ourselves in Palo Alto again!
So we've been coming here since Reposado opened, and this time we were wholly underwhelmed by almost everything. I'll give that it may have been a flat week for the chef and for the staff, but the dinner experience for our guests (who are experienced foodies) was an embarrassment.
Service - our server couldn't smile to save their life, or even come across interested that we were at their table. The change of tableware between appetizer and dinner was clumsy and unprofessional. The bussing service was even worse, with no attempt at discretion - tableware was picked off of plates and stacked on a plate on our table - and then the "tower" of plates was cleared with a clatter. The meal could have saved the experience, but unfortunately it did not.
Menu - I'm reflecting on the early days - the menu seemed lazy and unimaginative, with a level of redundancy that I don't recall in our last visit 6 months ago, and the sides seemed to be the only items relevant to the region the menu is supposedly inspired from, with the main dishes overwhelmingly being the standard pork, skirt steak, and chicken.
Food - the appetizers of guacamole (average and bland), street tacos (actually the most flavorful of the entire meal), and caesar salad (very good) came, and we moved beyond the obvious Americanized fare to order: camarones al sarten (was very good), ribeye (while prepared correctly, strangely looked and tasted like a top sirloin), cohinita pibil (bland), and chuletas de cordero (very small order for 40+). We requested corn tortillas with dinner, purportedly hand-made - at Trader Joes? I remember the sweet-potato corn hand made tortillas, and anyone who has experienced hand-made on premise knows what they should look and taste like.
In the end, as many have noted, it is very pricey - I have no problem dropping a couple of bills on a good dining experience. This was not it. I'm sad to say I think the hype has surpassed what can be delivered here for a reasonable price.
We came here for dinner, but when we saw the exhorbitant prices, we opted to order appetizers and chips and guacamole instead. I got the albondigas, which were tasty. A little spicy - yum, yum! The guacamole was a little spicy too, which I liked. One of the other people got the Caesar salad, which looked good. I will have to try it again. The service was good too.
Great food & sevice. The acoustics are not great so the noise level is loud which is actually tolerable BUT the music with the booming base made it a little too noisy to have a conversation and feel relaxed while eating. We were there on a busy Sat night. It's a fun atmosphere & definitely worth going but the noise level is definitely high. That being said, I would definitely still return there.
The guac! The empanadas! The short ribs! The dates stuff with chorizo! What is happening? Goodness!!! Grab a 16 oz. margarita or 2 and that makes for a great evening with friends. This place is a staple. That being said, don't recommend going here with anyone who is hard of hearing! Great energetic atmosphere, but it is not quiet!
The food is well prepared and delicious here, but RIDICULOUSLY overpriced! It's an upscale Mexican restaurant, noisy, basic service and their entrees were in the $30s-$40s. Lamb chop was $45! They have regular and large margaritas. We ordered the larges, and seriously, they are normal size anywhere else and were $19!! A few sips, and they were gone. The service continual asked us to order more drinks, as well. We would have loved more-but not at almost $20 a drink! Our bill for 4 people with no dessert, guacamole starter, 4 entrees and 4 drinks was $320!
Love the food here and the fact that they have a separate vegetarian menu with vegan options. Food was great. The only complaint I have is the noise level. The room was full and the noise level was so bad that I couldn't have a conversation with my friend across the table. This was a real disappointment and one of the reasons we ate and left so quickly rather than stay for desert or another drink. Too bad, because the ambiance and layout was quite nice.
What a lovely experience! From the service, to the great cocktails and delicious food, I highly recommend Reposado for an evening out. I had the daily special - it was a ceviche dish which was divine. My husband had the lamb and said it was the best he'd ever had. Really happy with everything!
We have been to Reposado many times. This is the first time we have encountered mediocre food. Perhaps the Sunday chef/cooks aren't as diligent in their prep but we were sorely disappointed. While we had an excellent server, it didn't make up for the food. We won't return on a Sunday for sure, and not at all for a while.
Loved this restaurant! everything was so fresh and tasty and a true gastronomical delight. The guacamole was perfect, the chips hot and plentiful, the salsas simply fresh and delicious. We took a Texan couple here so they got to experience Californian Mexican and they seemed to love it. I would love to come back to try the drinks. Absolutely yummy!!!!
The food at Reposado was outstanding! I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. Most restaurants overcook salmon and make it dry. Their salmon was incredibly moist and had a nice sear on it. Everything on the plate was delectable. My husband had the Argentinian shrimp which was also delicious and my son had the beef short ribs which in his words was "the best beef I've ever had". It was the quietest my son has ever been at the dinner table. He was to busy enjoying every morsel. There wasn't even sauce left on the dish by the time he was done. I will definitely be back!
What a friend describes as "refined" Mexican food with excellent and authentic ingredients. Delicious. Beautiful presentations. The service is great. I always like their "tacos de la calle." My husband was happy (very important), and he loved his 16 oz margarita!
I took my wife to Reposado for dinner the other night, and it was a very enjoyable experience. My wife had the lamb chops and I had the pork, and both were fantastic. As was the beet salad we shared, as well as the sangria and wine.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food, ambulance and good service. Really enjoy Reposado!
Reposado presents a nice package. The location, decor, and service were great. The cocktails hit the spot and, in hindsight, I'm sad I wasn't more adventurous in my tequila choices. The quality to price ratio on the food is the sticking point. Our meal was well conceived and tasty, but not memorable in a way that justifies paying 30-49 dollars per entree.
