My husband and I went here on a nice sunny Sunday, so we sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and professional. We really enjoyed the jazz music playing to accompany this romantic brunch. We highly recommend this place for brunch and we will certainly return!

I really want to like this restaurant. I've been here twice, once with a party of four and the second time with a party of 10. Each time, the food took forever getting to our table. The second experience was for my daughter's 16th birthday. I hesitated but this is where she really wanted to go. Our reservation was at... More

We popped in on a hot September day for lunch. We went inside to request a table, and were ignored for 5 minutes before being approached and then seated outside on a table that sloped badly due to the angle is was at. Although the maitre D wasn't good due to the wait and the poor table, the server was... More

Went to Palacio Saturday with a friend. Very cute place. Great outdoor seating, in the garden or the patio. We sat in the garden. Great service and very friend staff. We started with the Guacamole, Tostadas & House Salsa (roasted garlic, pico de gallo, serrano chiles, queso fresco) $11 and worth it. Might be the best guacamole and salsa I’ve... More

I wish the time waiting for the food would be a harbinger of great things to come. The food is not bad, but it doesn't justify the wait time. I don't know, why the service is so slow here. Maybe there is a lot of turnover of personnel? I don't want to go there anymore because of this. So, we... More

We'd been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, but hadn't gotten around to it. Four of us had dinner there and ordered a wide variety of dishes. Overall, we felt the quality was if-fy. Some things good; some things not so good. I had wild mushroom risotto with scallops, and the whole dish was barely warm. The... More

The best people were fired , and best bartender was forced out by the "boss". Food is mediocre, prices are way to high ! This place will not last long! Guacamole is missing something , chips are fatty and awful!

We love enjoying happy hour and or dinner on the patio. This restaurant started as upscale Mexican and has evolved to an eclectic, gourmet menu sure to please everyone! You can still enjoy chips,salsas & delicious Sangria! Nice wine list & full bar too. I love the paella & fish. Our Friends enjoyed the steak & lobster prix fix menu!

It's been about a year since I'd last been to this restaurant. This time, the food was just okay and the service was just bearable a far cry from what I remembered. I ordere a Red Sangria. It was fine but not great. We order the chips and salsa but they used far too much jalapeño in the salsa -... More
