The reviews on this place we're good so I tried it while in town for a business meeting. Could not have asked for anything better. Excellent service! Great food and awesome atmosphere.

Just had a wonderful experience at Palomino restaurant. Visited with my family and we enjoyed all the food and appetizers. The highlight was the tiramisu. They do an amazing job with that dessert. If that's made in house then hats off to the pastry chef. Our waitress was also amazing and very attentive. Would definitely visit again!

A friend recommended this place because it is his wife's favorite place. I thought it was good - but just good. I had brick chicken...it was different and just good. I would try this place again, but only if I can't get into one of my other fav places.

We enjoyed our dinner at Palomino's last night. The food was great. My husband felt the service was a little slow but our glasses were never empty. I ordered a side salad to add to my dinner and it was an $8.00 charge, I thought that was a little steep.

We enjoyed an early dinner at Palominos. We started with the house rosemary bread and dipping sauce followed by portabella mushroom soup. ( This is a must even if you think you don't like mushroom soup.) My husband had prawns scampi, although there was some debate if they were prawns or shrimp.Looked it up on All About Food and am...

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.
