This was our third visit in as many years. It is suitable for large groups and special occasions. Some of the tables have a great view of the Bay Bridge. Their menu is extensive and has something for everyone. The prices are average, but the portions are very generous. Reservations are recommended, but they do accommodate walk-ins.

This is our third visit to a Palomino's Restaurant and it is always consistently very good. The Seafood Louis that I had here was so much better than the Crab Louis that I had in Oregon a few days ago. It was loaded with top quality Dungeness Crab, poached prawns and avocados. We had great service from our server, Komet... More

We chose Palomino for Thanksgiving, as we were seeing the Cirque show at ATT. Once we got past the snobbish host, thinks got better. Our waiter Parker was perfect. I remained traditional with the Turkey Dinner and loved it. My wife had Scallops which we very good, but the pasta side dish was what she preferred. However, they kindly replaced... More

With an inviting, warm, elegant atmosphere, Palomino is sure to relax and satisfy the senses. From a lovely maitre d' greeting to attentive tableside service, the staff is accommodating and yet unobtrusive. As a practicing vegan, I appreciate that our waiter took extra care to modify my meal. While it is always a bit disappointing to find limited food menus,... More

Brought a birthday group here last Tuesday night. Had a view window table for 8 and they did us well. Good drinks, good menu variety and manager comped us a birthday desserts platter (re $27). Group loved it. East bay people need to try taking the ferry over, delightful viewing and then a short 10 min walk from the Ferry... More

We really enjoyed Palomino Restaurant, we had very good food, great service and a great view of the bay!! We were dinning w/ friends and family so we took our time dinning which no one seem to mind, I think this added to the positive experience we had.

the restaurant location and view is really good, the food and service however not so much; we had to wait more than 1h for the main course to arrive, and the taste was just OK; on our side of the restaurant it was full and only had one other table so the service could have been quicker in my opinion,...

When I worked in San Francisco, this was one of the popular place of my executive team and their clients. Now, I try to visit Palomino once a year. The food is always fantastic.

Ironically, we were seated at the same table with a great view of the dancing lights on the Oakland Bridge. We started with the calamari - loved the smoked pepper aioli. Husband had the Cornish game hen and I had one of the seafood specials. Both were very good. We split the tiramisu, which was the best we'd ever had... More

This is one of my favorite places in the city to eat with a view! Request a table in the main room or on the patio from where you can see the bay bridge. It feels like you're sitting under the bridge. This is also a great spot for 4th of July because you have the best view of the... More
