The restaurant section was full, but I took a seat in the informal bar section which serves the same menu. As always, the food was excellent. I had Brussel sprout and... read more

I've been to Palomino's lots of times and the food is ALWAYS good! It's in a great location downtown. It's easy to park at the mall parking and just walk across the street. It's one of my "go-to" restaurants!

First we park at circle center mall and when we leave the mall walk less than a block to the restaurant. This meal is 4 courses with your... More

My fourth trip to Palomino and an always enjoyable, but expensive, occasion. This time I tried the filet with a risotto base and it was absolutely tender and delicious! Lots of other items on the menu to try that looked intriguing. Service was amazing too.

I had the seafood pasta which is scallops and shrimp with wide noodles... More

Beer, pizza, and dip made a great little snack before we walked to the game. Make a little better stop before the game .. So many place to pick from but palominos has a touch of class and menu that sets them apart.

The food was really good. I got the pecan crusted blue cheese grilled chicken salad. In the past, the chicken had a grill marks that were burnt. I asked this time for them to not do that and it made a huge difference. It was so much better. A colleague got a pasta special and really liked it. I love... More
