The food saved the day

Was invited to dinner here along with 11 others and I can't say enough about the food I or anyone else in the group enjoyed. My entree specifically, Asiago Almond encrusted Scallops was full of flavor, cooked perfectly and I loved every bite, YUM! The starters were great and the Tiramisu was... read more

Dining with co-workers after a long tradeshow day. Food hit the spot at Palamino, though the service was a tad slow. It did speed up toward the middle/end of our meal though, so that was appreciated. I started with the Caramelized Cauliflower with fresh herbs, EVOO and herbed mascarpone - SO GOOD! Following that was a blackened ribeye on the... More

This was at one time one of my favorite places to eat in Indy, but I was disappointed at the food and the service. I started with an appetizer, planning on staying for dinner, and left. I got there at 4:30 hoping to beat the crowd, and instead....I beat the "service" or lack of....Maybe there's just too much competition in... More

I've been to Palomino before--but knew something was up when downtown was full. Of policemen. Cops on horses, cops on foot, cops in mobile detention RV's. But I was hungry and wanted their food, so parked and went in anyway. It was a little less crowded than usual, but the staff was unusually awesome. They were very unified in the... More

We stayed in the JW Marriott and walked to this restaurant to meet friends. Our reservation for table of 8 was smooth and timely. The menu had great variety and also a vegan option for me. We definitely will return. Also had very good service.

Had dinner here with business colleagues during the week. I have been here many times. I have always appreciated - and enjoyed - that the menu has many selections so that everyone can usually find something that suits their tastes.

We eat here a few times a year. We came for lunch. I always like the Portabella mushroom soup which has a kick to it. It is rich and creamy with the mushrooms cut to the right size. My wife loves the chop chop salad. I always get their tropical ice tea, which they managed to keep full. I ordered... More

The location of the restaurant if very convenient for everything downtown - and the look is quite nice, though a tad dark. Our server was very pleasant and efficient, and the menu quite extensive and interesting. Unfortunately, the food did quite live up all that promise, and seemed rather ordinary across the board, especially for the price point that the... More

Being just across the street fromt the Hyatt where is was staying I chose to eat here my first night in Indy. A wedding party had a rehearsal dinner here and we're really enjoying themselves. My romaine salad was perfect and my pork streak pretty good. The atmosphere and noise level was just fine.
