I have been here a few times and have enjoyed each visit. This is my favorite restaurant in Indianapolis. They got me hooked with their fettuccine alfredo years ago and still continue to surprise me! :) Good ambiance and perfect for date night!

In the centre of downtown this restaurant delivers the American take on Italian/European food and does it well. The waiting staff were attentive and brought our drinks quickly and as ordered coming quickly to get an additional order when a latecomer arrived. Good was good and portions more than enough. I had the salt baked prime rib which was very... More

I thought the lunch was a bit pricey for the options. I will say the kale salad was divine. It does have a charred taste, which most don't enjoy. I not be other hand loved it.

A few friends of mine and I traveled to Indianapolis to see the Colts football game and after the game we looked for a place to eat and have a few more drinks and we discovered Palomino. The service was efficient and attentive and the waitress was very friendly. The appetizers were very tasty and well done. The meatballs were... More

The 4 is for the food. Amazing food and cocktails!! Server was good but she got a LOT of tables all at once in their seat yourself lounge that is full service. The manager.... Instead of helping her... Chatted with someone at the bar!!! Poor! I waited 15 minutes for water and a second Martini!

We went to Palomino as part of a weekend getaway. I had the scallops with fennel salad and it was absolutely delicious. Menu items were pretty pricey, but well worth it. The restaurant's atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. While it is a very upscale place, you feel at home. Great service. Great food. Enjoyed it!

We enjoyed an amazing dinner with friends the night before The Colts and Patriots played at Lucas Oil Stadium. We had reservations and were seated in a timely manner. We started off slow, each couple splitting the Large Palomino Chopped salad. Definitely enough for two people. We accompanied our meal with a lovely, fruity Freemark Merlot suggested by our attentive... More

I have eaten here when it was much better. It is still a good restaurant but it has had high billing in the past and does not live up to its once reputation. I still recommend eating here.

Having had dinner at Palomino's about a year ago - I remembered it as great experience, so was very keen to go back there a couple of days ago... Appetizers were really good - heavenly bruschetta and fried calamari We had selected an excellent Chianti - which did beautiful despite our selection of fish vs meat. But the main dishes... More
