Due to the increase in COVID-19 restrictions, Casa Romero will be temporarily closed January/4/2021 thru February/9/2021. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you very much for your support during this difficult time.

After 40 years, my customers still tell me what a delightful discovery it is to step out of a Boston alley and into the heart of Mexico. That is exactly what I had envisioned when I decorated the coffered door and walls of my restaurant with the bright Talavera tiles from Puebla, Mexico. Casa Romero is located in the midst of glamorous Back Bay at 30 Gloucester and offers the best traditional Mexican food in Boston.

    I’ve been coming here since Leo opened. It’s a time capsule of the early 70’s. Great food, best Mole I’ve ever had. Nice to see it packed on a Wed. Service was a 10!

    Always a pretty place, we still enjoy coming here. We were shocked at how the portion sizes have changed (guacamole, salsa, chips, beans as a side on the dish. The food remains good as does the service. Not the same experience as it used to be however.

    We always have fun at Casa Romero! Last night it was quite crowded and everyone there was enjoying the food, margaritas, and festive atmosphere. William was our server and did a great job getting our food and drinks to us in a timely, friendly, manner. We will definitely be returning to Casa Romero the next time we are in Boston. Thanks for a fun evening!

    We have been to Casa Romero often and it was as good as ever. Some of our party had a dish with a stuffed chicken breast with mole sauce which we had not seen on the menu before - it was delicious. Others in our party has Enchiladas Verde and Chilis Rellenos. At our request they made us guacomole which was not spicy. All was delicious. Once again a great meal.

    I'm terribly shocked by the offensive woman host. First of all, I was in front of the restaurant and is waiting to be checked in, she came over and just stared at me, almost as if I'm a monster or something. A normal person would ask the name for the reservation, instead she said nothing before I told everything to her. Secondly, after she lead us to the darkest corner, she disappeared before I try to ask for another table, so I asked a waiter if I can sit at another table and I got a positive anwser, then the woman came over here and just shouted at me: move, you cannot sit here! And when I complained that the original seat was uncomfortable, she even said: You got to sit where I asked you to sit! WTF? Am I a prisoner or something? What a big joke!

    Wine prices for bottles are great. Cocktails were a bit pricey. We went because we saw an out before 7 pm menu online that they did lot say they had removed. Food was good but not very tasty and expensive for Mexican. Guacamole was delicious and everything seemed fresh however.

    Kitchen appreciation charge? Outrageous. Pay your kitchen staff a decent wage and have properly displayed all in pricing. You have a kitchen appreciation charge in the bill and then look for a tip on that, as if it is a consumable. Crazy!

    Food was good, but spicy. Service was mixed. They did not have enough service staff, so needed to get his attention for menus, additional drinks and the check. One dish came out cold, but was quickly replaced.

    It’s a wonderful hidden gem, bustling atmosphere. The food is very fresh tasting. The service was fine but gruff and the welcome from the host was not welcoming. Music was loud and when I asked for it to be turned down (the people on the next table were bothered by it too) I was turned down and it’s an already a noisy restaurant due to the low ceilings. Some of this stuff is about my preferences, clearly many people weren’t bothered. Great to get more authentic Mexican food here in Boston. Expensive but then everything is these days. GREAT COCKTAILS.

    Great choices of margaritas - we each enjoyed a different one and all were delicious. The mole sauce (enchiladas) is the perfect amount of spicy. Fish tacos got a thumbs up and a version of pulled pork (can’t remember what it’s called but it’s served in a small pot with tortillas to fill/wrap) was perfect for a cooler Boston night. The server was attentive and knew the menu backfire and forward— helping us with food and beverage selection. Lively on a Friday night. Had a celebratory feeling. This place has been a favorite for years but post COVID it somehow has earned an even higher place on our dine-out rotation!

    I'd maybe recommend Casa. This was our family's first adventure there after hearing such positives things. Honestly the food was very average and pricey for what it is ... $15 for a small plate of quac and chips is ridiculous. Salads and steaks were good but enchiladas and fajitas were average. Margs were good but have had better (and better glasses!) And the noise level was waayyy too loud ... we could barely converse. Plus the seating is so tight. They even moved our table back a little to make more walking space ... my husband was so squished in the corner. On a more positive note, the waitstaff was very nice and service was good. Overall, we LOVE Mexican food ... but this was disappointing full disclosure. Local parking was also crazy $$$. So a very expensive night in Boston for little return. Oh well ... it was a beautiful night in the city nonetheless. I'm sure we'll give it a second chance. Thanks

    Service was really slow. Food was just ok. Rice and refried beans portions were small and needed to order an extra side. Food could use a bit more “heat” or spice. Service was really slow. We were dying of thirst! We had to flag down different waiters multiple times. Cool ambiance and fun atmosphere, but I’m not going back for the food, just the drinks and vibe.

    We had a great saturday lunch. Chicken quesadilla and a beef quesadilla (caramelo). Both were very flavorful and well prepared. The green tomatillo sauce on the side went especially well with the dish. Ambiance so nice too. We have been many times over the years and place remains great

    Returned to Casa Romero after a 10 year break and won’t make that mistake again. This should be in your rotation for casual dining and delicious Mexican cuisine. The margaritas are worth it alone. We sat at the bar and got such friendly service and great coaching on the menu. Casa Romero is all about authentic food, drink and service. We will be back again very soon.
