Ordered a Mexican classic called "Chile en Nogana", traditionally this dish is made with a pepper that's stuffed with ground beef and topped with pomagranate seeds. Instead they stuffed the pepper with chicken and topped it with sliced Marachino cherries, completely different from what the tradition is. I also ordered a tortilla soup and it was condensed with cormeal and... More

The fajitas here are amazing. The wait staff are very personable and on certain times there is live music, usually provided by nationals and also by other musicians.

The breakfast was as incredible as the service. They played great music and everything on my plate was fresh. Benito was so attentive and was smiling the whole time. Best service I've had in Mexico for a while. I highly recommend you visit this place if you want great atmosphere, service, and quality food!!

This restaurant used to be a solidly great place to eat. Unfortunately the last couple times we've visited it the food has not been up to par. The food has been cold twice. What's up with that? And the service isn't that great either, although to be fair it's never been that great - but good food could make up... More

My sisters and I visited La Paloma in early Feb. 2016. The ambience was a delight but the food mediocre ---- chicken was tough and salmon had no taste.

Not a good place for breakfast.... cold dishes. Ordered Chilaquiles with chicken & got Chilaquiles without chicken :/ the waiter laughed when asked to bring the chicken. If you like sweet bread to go with your coffee bring your own cause they don't have that kind of bread. To expensive not very nice cuisine and bad service.
