I had just checked in to the nearby Marriott downtown and the Concierge at the hotel recommended this place. It was 2 pm in the afternoon, so it was not crowded. The waiter was prompt and attentive. The cocktail menu was unique: there was a pumpkin martini that I really wanted to try but they had run out of one... More

I was there with a group of 20 people for work and everyone had a wonderful time. EVERYTHING on the menu is amazing. The service was second to none. The drinks are very strong and the desserts are worth the calorie splurge. LOVED it. HIGHLY recommended and worth returning here

A good option if you want a restaurant with an elegant downtown ambiance. The staff is professional and accommodating. Though a bit pricey, the food is very good (definitely try the mushroom soup). Also, the tiramisu makes a great ending to the meal. If you can, request a table by the window. It's a great place to watch downtown Indy... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely, it is kind of big but the noise level wasn't too bad. Had a business dinner with two colleagues. I enjoyed the food but the service was a bit slow and the server didn't have much in the way of timing with patrons or manners. when she served several times she crossed in... More

We were happy to find a table at the Palomino after the Colts game recently. It was a bit of a brisk night so when I saw Short Ribs on the menu, my mind was quickly made up! And it was a great choice as the meat was tender and tasty. Unfortunately, my sides and potatoes were luke warm when... More

A busy city vibe, yet a place you can have a quiet conversation. Service was very slow one of the two times I ate at the restaurant, but the food was worth the wait.

I was impressed with how they were able to get a seated rather promptly. The waitress was actually very helpful when we asked what were some of the better menu items. So often they tell you everything is good. She gave us some very helpful direction. The place was packed before long. Even so the meals arrived in a decent... More

We visited the elegant Palomino restaurant on a rainy Sunday. First, I had no trouble making reservations. The restaurant had just opened when we arrived. We were initially shown to a table, but I asked for a booth by the window where we were seated there. This allowed an excellent view of the downtown. There are carriage rides available outside...

Restaurant is right at the circle centre mall. Very good convenient location. Ambiance is good but a little too crowded for special occassions. On Wednesday that we went, there is 50% off bottled wine. A pretty good deal! Have ordered the grilled seafood pasta. It was with lots of fresh seafood. Definitely will ordered this again. Service was also good... More
