We really enjoyed our outdoor dining experience at Palomino. I had the maple chicken salad with the warm wedge of pecan crusted blue cheese-delicious! My friends tried pizzas which also looked outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We used open table for our reservation which was very convenient. I would definitely come back here if I lived near... More

The waitress, Ami was professional in the manner that she handled food and customers. We ordered the Maytag Salad first and my wife and I split it. Then she had the soup and pasta, it was... More

Have visited several times before & been happy with what we ordered - some disappointing surprises this time. We arrived early for our reservations but were graciously seated right away. Our waiter, Derek, was fantastic! The Maytag blue cheese salad was enjoyed immensely by my husband. The bread & salsa appetizer was delicious. My husband's filet was tender & yummy... More

Hello, I wanted to thank your for your feedback and apologies for the over cooked scallops. They are normally one of the guest favorite items. I will be sure the chef follows up with the team to be sure they are preparing them correctly. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your evening. Happy Anniversary, Jeffery J Perkins More

It is casual and chic at the same time. Liked the Palomino in LA so tried it in Indianapolis and have been happy every time. Great after visiting the downtown museums and park, it is with in walking distance so you don't have to worry about parking.

My husband and I had the onion soup, to start the meal. It was delicious, sweet, and with a lot of cheese in every spoonful. Then I had Trout on top of a Kale salad with nuts and raisins and a wonderful dressing. The portion was so big I had plenty for a late snack ... At that point I... More

I went here with a few couples and one of them had a very young child with them. The restaurant was very accommodating and the food was great. Hadn't eaten here in several years but I'm glad I returned.

The food quality and service at Palomino is very good. The chop-chop salad and the portobello mushroom soup are favorites. Nice upscale place for lunch with fair prices.
