The bottomless brunch limits the menu to just a few entree's. Food was ok, service was average - took about 30 minutes for us to get our second round of drinks but the waitress did extend our 90 minute timeframe to compensate. Overall, I would go back.
Wonderful meal. Some of the best guacamole I have ever had. O would highly recommend
Bottomless brunch is a good deal with good service. Margs were strong.
Delicious food. Good service. Lovely ambience. Definitely recommend. Be sure to order the guacamole!!
We went for the bottomless brunch. The mimosa's were great, and while we were waiting on our food, we ordered the guacamole and chips, which were also great! The hot sauces were also really good (especially the spicy one).
Our brunch dishes did take quite some time to arrive, and one arrived many minutes before the other two.
Friendly and fun service.
Fun, good vibe, very good food. Waitress (Marti) was exceptional-helpful, efficient, charming
Food was okay - missing more flavor. Drinks were watered down.
Always a top notch experience. The food is outstanding.
The appetizers are amazing, as are the margaritas. The tacos were addictive. Very low light intimate setting. Great place to grab dinner with a significant other or a group of friends. Can get a little loud at times but all in all great experience.
Great food, great drinks. Excellent place for a girls night out.
Amazing! Great food and great atmosphere
La Palapa definitely has the best margaritas (frozen or otherwise) in Manhattan. Pair that with delicious food and quick & friendly servers and it's become my go to place to bring friends, my husband, family, you name it. Not to mention I'm a chef myself, so I'm not easy to impress!
La Palapa was unlike any Mexican restaurant I've been to in NYC. Delicious and unique, with reasonable prices.
The food was excellent and the brunch special was an amazing deal!
The lobster crepes, chicken mole, and octopus salad were delicious. The drinks good as well. Service was attentive and efficient. Would return again and again.
We went early for Valentine's day anticipating all restaurants to be crowded and way too noisy for our liking. Because of this, we had our waiter's undivided attention, got our food in a relatively quick manner and was able to enjoy it in peace. The food was amazing, I personally loved that there were a bunch of vegetarian friendly options to choose from that were just as delicious as the options with meat or fish.
The food was great!! A little loud and we were seated next to the door so a bit cold but otherwise great! Two big tacos for $12 was good for me - the pork and the chorizo were yummy.
Waitress seemed like she was high... she didn’t explain the menu to us, didn’t check in on us enough so we were often left with empty glasses, all the other tables got their food before us and we got there before them and had a smaller party. The food was terrible quality. I ordered the French toast which was supposed to have cinnamon syrup and bananas, but instead they just dumped a whole fruit salad on top of it (grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe) yes there were bananas but no one wants watermelon on top of their French toast!
Great food and fun atmosphere! Great place for a Friday night get-together!
Went out of their way to accommodate us and gave us the dessert on the house as there was some mix-up with our table when we had arrived
The restaurant was super crowded, we were a twenty top and the server had a few other tables hence the service was pretty bad. We had to flag him down every time we needed something and a 90 min dinner took well over two hours. Food was good but we wait ages for everything. Won’t be returning anytime soon unfortunately.
Ambiance and service are fine. La Palapa's food is inconsistent. You might do very well, or you may not.
The woman who greeted me (could have been the manager/owner) was so pleasant and seated my friend & I. Service was quick and brunch was delicious. Definitely going back.
GREAT brunch deal. $16 for a large drink, fruit, and a meal. Also have a bottomless option. Went for my birthday and they gave everyone at the table a free shot to celebrate. Def recommend for brunch!
really good spot for authentic food. good service, great atmosphere.
Went there for my birthday and it was perfect! The food was delicious and the service was great! Highly recommend. They were able to accommodate 9 of us.
It was an awesome time. There was a party going on so I am glad that I used OpenTable for reservation.
My favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. I always make a point of coming here.
Fun . Good ambience and food was good
This is a great spot for Brunch. There is plenty of room for big groups. I usually come with a group of 8-12 here. Its all you can drink flavored frozen margaritas, mimosas or bloody marys for 2 hours. The food is okay. There are only maybe 6 options for the brunch menu.
Been going to La Palapa regularly since they opened years ago. Love it every time. It’s a good vibe place and the food is always delicious.
So delicious! My friend and I went becauce they were generous to donate a gift certificate to my son's school which I bid on and "won" - Such a great meal, wonderful service. It was a Monday night so they were busy, but not all overcrowded and uncomfortable. Lamb shank was deliciousa!
Any of the dishes with the black mole will be excellent! We also recommend getting the crudite with the guacamole.
La Palapa is a great place to celebrate. The ambiance is bright and the staff is very friendly, providing a great overall energy for young casual east villagers. If brightly colored decorations from floor to ceiling and bottomless mimosas don’t scream happy, I don’t know what does. But what makes La Palapa even better, is you don’t have to compromise good food for a somewhat affordable brunch experience. The meals are delicious. The portions are generous and my friends and I enjoyed every bight. Also, the guac is bomb👌🏼
Thanks La Palapa, this was really fun!
I had a friend date with my friend it was a pleasant experience
La Palapa is an east coast rarity — superb, authentic Mexican cuisine. I had the shrimp mole, and it was marvelous. The mole was rich and spicy hot, but did not overwhelm the dish. We also enjoyed frozen fresh lime margheritas, one without any salt, two with spicy salt, which I hadn’t seen offered before. The spicy red salt was really nice with the fresh lime flavor, and the drink was a good one — definitely NOT a virgin. Finally, the avocado pie for dessert was to die for along with an excellent espresso. If you’re a CSC member, the margheritas are comped with dinner. The other two meals at the table were also exceptional.
Amazing dinner with friends- our waitress was amazing, the restaurant was cute, food was delicious. No complaints !
The restaurant is cosy and the guys are welcoming and friendly. Good food, good drinks; had a nice night with my friend.
We had a great time and everything went smoothly and great! Thank you :-)
