Try wine down Wednesdays!

The food is always good at Palimino, the service is great and I love the 1/2 price wine by the bottle on Wednesdays!

First it was Easter Sunday and we just wanted to grab a bite before heading back to Indianapolis. Nelson the General Manager who if I do say so is rather handsome, greeted us and explained with we would probably be waiting about 30 to 40 minutes since we didn't have reservations for the Easter Brunch. But he could offer us... More

Good food at lunch time. Go early as it gets busy by noon. Service is not bad. A nice variety on the menu with something for all in your lunch party.

I really do love this place. Heck, I even used to work here 15 years ago and never stopped coming back. Food is excellent, staff is awesome, and ambience/views are great of the city. If you like Pizza, you have to try one of their thin crusted fire roasted deals....amazing! Great price and great place for a date or a... More

Me and four friends ate here before attending the Cincinnatti Wine Fest. At first glance, the prices seemed a little high but for the quality of the food the price seemed appropriate. The range was from about $8.00 up to the thirty's, but most lunches are in the low teens... two meals with water cost me $24 minus the tip.... More

I was there on a VERY cold day and service was not great but the food was awesome. The waitress recommended the kale salad and bit. It was an awesome choice and so delicious that I requested the recipe!

We visited for Valentine's Day with another couple and our young children. The view is pretty good from every table so it was nice to look out at the city. Our server was very good and nice to the kids. He even brought them all out ice cream at the end. Everyone liked their meal with no complaints. Only good... More

The view of the Square is always interesting. The Happy Hour in the bar area is the best deal in downtown

Our Christmas Eve ritual is to attend 4 p.m. mass and then, go downtown to look at the big tree on the square and have dinner at Palomino and watch the folks ice skate.. I had Scallops, my wife had Salmon and our daughter had chicken. all of which were devoured. Great food as usual. What was different is that... More
