Very good

Very nice place, good food and drinks and not overly pricey. We had great service from Matt and the pork dish was amazing. the only thing that was negative was that it took so long to get drinks! Even the waiter was frustrated but still the food an wine was great.

The Good: very nice kale salad, central location, clean. The Bad: nothing really good, older decode, staff average, several just ok dishes, pricey. This is an upscale place in downtown. There is lots of competition in the area and so this place is usually not crowded. It's an older place that's slightly updated. Only the bathrooms show their age. The... More

Food is just average and over priced. The service was way below average that is why I dropped it down to 2.

We had dinner at the Palomino a few nights ago. It was close to a downtown hotel where a family member was staying. It had been a few years since we had been to the Palomino. The food was very good. I thought the awnings and menus were showing some signs of age, but the service and ambiance were also... More

We were walk-ins for dinner and were able to get a table without a reservation on a Friday night, which was surprising. I ordered the Paella with scallops added. The flavor was good, but it was more salty than I would prefer. For dessert we shared a slice of Chocolate Hazelnut Mouse Cake, and it was delightful.

We enjoyed our evening last night at Palomino. We loved the roasted garlic appetizer. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to selections and adjustments to meet our dietary needs. The food was so great that we ended up splurging on the sicilian donuts for dessert, which were not part of our diet. Sherri was such a... 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
