great food, great service

I regularly eat at Palomino when I am in Indiana. The food is always good and the service is excellent. I don't eat meat and Palomino will let me make modification and substitutions. Their hummus is fantastic and the pear bread pudding is divine.

Service was top drawer, food was excellent and the price was where it should be for this kind of restaurant. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Very nice and sophisticated restaurant without being pompous. Delicious food, slower service and the price point is just right.

Evidently the Sockeye Salmon is only available at certain times of the year. Our friends had told us how wonderful it was so when the 4 of us found out it was available, we changed our reservations to Palomino's to try it. My husband & I split the caesar salad ($8) & it was good. The salmon was delicious, very... More

Unfortunately, my party did not care for the food or service. Pork tenderloin was dry, salad was drenched in dressing and lacked depth of flavor, coffee served lukewarm, and for dessert-Tiramisu- bland chocolate layer cake with lukewarm coffee. The service -slow while restaurant was empty- 3 tables! Very disappointing experience.

Make sure to ask for Deon! Outstanding service, great personality. Food was fabulous, cooked to order, much better than the chain restaurants. Loved their Malbec.

Kitchen staff was apparently caught off-guard by the race weekend influx of guests. Upon arrival, we were told that they were not seating any additional guests. Opting to sit in the comfy bar area, we enjoyed good cocktails and beer and chatted with guests at the adjacent table, who were also in town for the Indy 500. It took a... More

We were going to attend a concert at White River State Park and arrived in Indy in time to walk to Palomino for a light dinner beforehand. We ordered all of the non-seafood appetizers in two orders and all of them were excellent! We ordered a pizza to share as well. We were also delighted to learn that on Wednesdays... More
