This place is crazy good; not your average Mexican restaurant. I live in a City (Austin) that has a Mexican Restaurant on every block it seems and this one would be a standout anywhere. I had the duck breast and it was perfect. I ordered it medium, and it was just right. Done enough on the outside to release the... More

Las Palmas is a small restaurant in Wicker Park that is run by Rick and Marcos and their family. This is my favorite restaurant in the city simply because of the amazing food, great staff and delicious drinks. The owners and the staff always make us feel welcomed. My favorite dish is hands down Enchayotadas (Corn tortillas stuffed with chayote,... More

I live in a land of very limited Mexican food, so I don't often get to see anything like the wonderful creations at Las Palmas. In one part of the restaurant, an employee was scooping out avocado to make fresh guacamole to order with all of the peppers and ingredients ready to add. I had a wonderful veggie dish in... More

There is no shortage of excellent hole-in-the-wall Mexican food in Chicago but for something more substantial and still casual Las Palmas is perfect. I visited in a group of 6, all ordering different things, and there was not one complaint. There are a variety of vegetarian options as well as 1 vegan, which I ordered. I cannot recommend this enough!!... More

A fantastic little gem with a friendly and attentive staff. This is not average Mexican food. Fresh and delicious. Plenty of tasty appetizers to choose from but we enjoyed the cerviche. For entrees I selected the Enchayotadas and I'm still thinking about how wonderful it was. It was two corn tortillas stuffed with grilled chayote, (squash) carrots, portabella mushrooms and... More

This was, by far, the most broad and creative Mexican cuisine I have had. Every dish was something I wanted to try. The drinks were expensive, but at least they were very large to match the price. Loved it.

Not your typical Mexican fare-ok for some, but not what we expected and very expensive for what it was! would not go back.

I have nothing but great things to say about this place - it's the total package!! Upscale, gourmet, delicious variations on classics with great "craft" margaritas and a wonderful staff. Fresh seafood, produce, great molé and so much more. This place has been here for over a decade (I believe) and hasn't lost any of it's edge - still one... More

I couldn't believe this place wasn't packed. The food is authentic, attractive and had a depth of flavor that I don't experience often. Service is great. I loved the passion fruit mimosa too! Try the eggs with chorizo or the omeleta las palmas. GREAT!!!
