Needs some TLC

I haven't been to Palomino for years and had dinner there last night. The place needs some serious updating especially the men's restroom. Ate in the bar and some of the chairs look pretty worn and just need to be wiped off. The place just needs a good cleaning. The service was slow and the... read more

We visited on a night where they offered free wine. The wine and appetizers were spectacular. Our meals however took forever to come and only came with half of what we ordered. 3 of the 4 meals were overcooked. The waiter was amazing and realized how things were going and comped us dessert and our sides. I don't blame him... More

I'm not sure what went wrong. Palomino is one of our old "go to" spots to eat--date night, brunches, large groups--you name the occasion, we've celebrated there. But our last visit was a bit of a disappointment. Hubby bought a Groupon since we are regulars. We went this time on a Thursday night, the Thursday before Valentine's day. The best... More

I have dined at the Palomino quite often for business and pleasure. Service always attentive and the food is always presented in a very tasteful manner. Great Food. Great Location. You must go whenever in Indy.

Four in our party, all ordered something different, and no one left disappointed. Everything was great from appetizer to desert, and friendly and efficient wait staff. Not inexpensive, but worth it.

Food was very good, although not inexpensive. Menu was misleading about the price of our wine but server was very accommodating and had it removed from the bill (we didn't drink it). Even a second look at the menu had us confused. Server was attentive and helpful. Now, what was so bad. The hostess was so rude if we hadn't... More

Went here on a Tuesday night- very quiet. Not many people there. Great martini ginger pear is highly recommended. House bread was served which was a little dry but the tomato base topping helped a lot. Paella was the dish of choice and it was delicious!!! Nice portion size and so good. Atmosphere was quiet which was perfect for a... More

I had one of the best Spinach salads that I have ever had at Palomino. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. I loved being able to sit on a loveseat and dine. The atmosphere is really interesting and comfortable. I look forward to going back again soon!

We went to Palomino during restuarant week. The mushroom soup was great and the paella was very good. However, the prime rib was overly chewy and the wait staff did not seem concerned that some individuals left nearly the entire portion on their plate.

Devour Indy got us out to downtown Indy on a January night. Great 3 course meal plus a drink. Loved the prime rib at the time but drank 3 extra glasses of water later because of the high salt content. Still a great date night dinner. Devour is til end if Jan. Worth trying out.
