“Happy hour spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Relaxed spot, nice choice of drinks, not too loud. The servers usually have great recommendations. The four cheese baked penne is hearty and flavorful.

“They Noticed My Special Request”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

My parents were in town for a pre-Christmas visit so we went to a show and made reservations at Palomino's via OpenTable. I noticed the special request option in the online reservation form so I requested a Fountain Square view for my special out of town guests. We were seated at the perfect window table (of which I won't reveal the number because it's my little secret). The timing of bread, appetizer and entree was perfect and the flavor and plating tastefully presented. I'll be back for a special occasion or a last minute-cross-your-fingers-there's a table for two.

“Crab&Artichoke Dip is to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I just have on thing to say and recommend: the Crab And Artichoke Dip is AMAZING! It is so warm and tasty. That with an apple martini from Palomino is my favorite. I love the view that the Palomino offers and the staff is wonderful!
