Reposado Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Sorry, but $28 for chicken mole and $29 for seafood crepes that were the size of a dessert crepe not to mention $19.50 for a (large) margarita made with sweet and sour in lieu of fresh squeezed limes and agave is a no go for me and anyone who isn't interested in shelling out big bucks for Mexican food in a toney Palo Alto location. Oh yeah, and $7 for mediocre chips and salsas.
We were seated towards the back area for a table for 2 made the reservation for 8:45pm and waited only about 3-5 mins for a table once we got there.
After being seated we were given two menus for the food and then the cocktails and drinks. The server poured us water and I asked for lemons. The server told us about the weekend special per the margaritas. My husband ordered one and I ordered a skinny spicy margarita. We ordered chips and guacamole and tomalitos to hold us over since we were hungry.
Drinks and Appetizers came and they were delicious we ordered our entrees as well - I ordered the Crepas Con Mariscos which was red snapper, shrimp and other seafood, actually very very delicious. Husband had the mole which was undercooked and still bleeding :( he was a little angry and said something to the server which he said sorry and left it at that, I thought that was rude, the least he could have done was take it back to cook more.
We had dessert and coffee to finish as my husband was angry that he couldn't eat the rest of his food and the server just took the plates and boxed mine up.
The check came and he charged us double for the drinks and apologized that it should have only been one since like I mentioned we only had one drink each, he did not take off anything not that we wanted him to but I thought for an undercooked meal he didn't take back to cook more should have been complimented being that he made a bad judgement call on that.
Overall the experience was dreadful- we were looking for a place to hang out and I wanted Mexican food and Tequila and some good music not country music in a Mexican tavern and especially didn't come for the bloody chicken mole and overcharging for drinks! 😑
I'm a local and love Reposado. The guacamole is the best on the planet. For my latest visit, I took a number of work colleagues who were all first-timers to Palo Alto and the restaurant. They were blown away. It was a great night with amazing food and and that irreplaceable Palo Alto buzzy energy.
Very solid mexican-style food in a high-end setting at high-end prices. We ordered several types of margaritas (especially recommend the picante), and shared tapas and entrees. The quality was very good, and the preparation was very satisfactory. The overall meal was reasonably expensive, but the quality was high also. I would particularly call out the excellent service provided by the front desk and the server.
The eggplant vegetarian main dish had two pieces of eggplant of which one was very well done and the other was so uncooked that I couldn't eat it. We asked to put a candle on the dessert order but they didn't the first time around.
Margaritas and plantains were very good.
I like the restaurant decor.
We loved the menu, but some might find it limited. The food was AMAZING. My husband had the Ahi, and I had the Prawns with black rice, both of which our server said were new on the menu. They were perfect. The Hamachi appetizer was great too, albeit a bit small.
Drinks were just okay. I had the lemon drop martini (as a lemon drop lover who drinks them everywhere, this was far off the mark). My husband said his margarita was good but not great.
The wait staff was efficient, attentive, and very friendly. Really contributed to a great experience. The front desk staff was stiff, a bit aloof, and didn't greet us very warmly - they could use some coaching from the wait staff. It was a night and day difference.
Overall, we loved this place! We'll be back soon!!
What a great restaurant! We had a fantastic meal and outstanding service. Every dish we ordered was spectacular. The Cesar salad and Ceviche starters, the Tequila Flight and margaritas, the main dishes (salmon, ahi, pork chops, short ribs) were all outstanding. Everything was cooked to perfection, presented beautifully and wonderfully tasty! Our service was attentive and elegant without being overbearing or stuffy. I would dine here again and again.
Delicious dishes and cocktails that are innovative while still feeling comfortable. We arrived half an hour early for our reservation, but they sat us right away. Service was quick and friendly.
It's pretty loud, and the tables are a little close to each other, but we had a great time.
I stopped going to Reposado a couple of years ago as it was okay food with slow service in a very loud room. We decided to give it another try last night for a 6 person birthday dinner. Unfortunately my opinion didn't change.
The restaurant was 50% full at 730pm. It took the waiter 20 minutes to acknowledge our table and another 20 minutes to get us drinks. Once drinks were delivered we waited another 20 minutes to be asked for our food orders. Their chips, guac and salsas are great. The food, however, as reported by everyone at the table was severely over-salted. Short ribs, seafood crepes and chicken mole were all massively hit with the salt shaker.
We ordered a bottle of wine that, while not corked, didn't taste good. That didn't matter to the management. They said that was the way the wine tasted, it needed more chilling time but it was now ours. I would have been happy to upgrade to a better wine but they didn't offer.
No need to go back. Until they get their service worked out - and lighten up on the salt - it's not worth the price.
I used to enjoy the food at Reposado. However, this latest visit, we had multiple issues:
1. The food arrived less than 5 minutes after ordering. We hadn't even received our margaritas.
2. The very quickly delivered food was warm, but not hot. It felt like they had multiple of each entree pre-plated and just sitting out waiting for people to order.
3. The food was nearly flavorless. Very little herbs and spices. Even under-salted (a rarity at restaurants). They cut back on the sides compared to previous visits. The sauces left much to be desired.
4. The salsas are _so boring_ and in tiny, tiny bowls that make it difficult to eat them with chips. That has been their serving style in the past, but when the salsas were better it was easier to overlook the faulty form.
Overall, a big disappointment. This place is overpriced and underwhelming.
We do not plan on returning.
