Excellent Place – We went there last night - a group of 4 of us were in the front of the restaurant with the guy playing the guitar. Very fun automosphere. Fun was all outstanding. We are all those who appreciate fine dining and was a little apprehensive about going b/c it seemed pricey for a Mexican place.

However, the appetizer we got - a sampling of their ceviches - was amazing - one was better than the other. My entree was the best - it was the Casa Borracha and it was awesome. The lamb was a bit disappointing - very small portion and not the best I have ever had, but still good. Everything else was great as well - a shrimp dish and the salmon special - we were very happy here and will definitely go back.

Great service & Live music – I went here on a Sunday night with three friends. We were seated promptly and the waitress was very attentive. The most memorable part of the night was the live music (man with guitar)...it gave a nice vibe to the place. The tableside guacamole was ok, but I prefer Adobo Grill. We saw a lot of couples around, the private booths lends itself to romanitic dining. My entree (shrimp w/ cucumber mango salsa) was good, but smelled a little fishy. The Filet with Rocquefort was very tasty, perfectly cooked. I wish I had gotten that dish! We had the chocolate tamale for dessert and it was very good. Not too sweet, not too rich. However, it's not the cheapest mexican food around.

Delightful! – We've gone to Las Palmas three times in the past month and I can't wait to go back. The food is amazing, the staff is efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is decidedly hip. The empanadas are unbelievable!!!! My goal is to try every entree and so far I've enjoyed the puerco indigeno the most.

Good Mexican food. Not too fancy. Basics are great. – This place is great. They don't try and overdo the food like other Mexican restaurants in Chicago. The basics with some creativity. You'll be satisfied with most items on the menu. Staff is very friendly and attentive. When making a reservation ask for the back patio. It's a nice spot in early/late summer or fall. Guitarist plays on weekends.

Professional folks enjoy Mexican cuisine and fruity margaritas at this local chain outpost. – In Short
Refined and comfortable, this contemporary south-of-the-border spot boasts a tiled copper interior enlivened by large, colorful Frida Kahlo reproductions. Ceviche, empanadas, red snapper and flautas are among the dishes offered, but many rave about traditional fare such as the chili relleno or enchiladas with mole sauce, all generously portioned and well-executed. Diner can also opt for the "casa barracha," a plate with skirt steak and plantains stacked to look like a house.

Great Food and Drinks – I went here on Cinco de Mayo so it was almost impossible to rate service as the place was packed and nobody could move about. We stood near the bar area and had delicious margaritas and some great guacamole that was made fresh. The chips that came with it were also sooo delicious, freshly baked and low on salt. I would definitely come back here for dinner or lunch. Fun atmosphere too!

Fabulous Food and Atmosphere – The food is absolutely great and the atmosphere is perfect. You can sit in the front area which has a very nice ambiance and fireplace. Then there is a "greenhouse" style area and finally a nice outdoor patio. Also, there tends to be live music (one guy playing guitar and singing) on weekends. Finally, the menu is large and diverse and has many options for vegetarians. I highly recommend this place.

Stay away! – Don't waste your money on this place. The service was terrible and you can get better Mexican food elsewhere. The server got two of our drinks wrong after we specifically told him what we wanted. Two of three entrees were fixed incorrectly. Why bother asking for what we want when it's just going to come out wrong anyway?? The food was dry, bland and a disappointment.

A good "date" Mexican place – Las Palmas is a very nice, upscale mexican eatery that is a good date stop. Good food, great service, occasional music, a good bar and nice low lighting make for a nice evening without making you look like el cheapo.
