All bottle wines are 1/2 price on Wednesday. It was the perfect compliment to my Seafood paella and friends vegetarian pizza.. Our server, Conner was outstanding. The menu is broad and prices to fit most budgets. I try to visit every trip to Indy.

My wife and I met another couple for dinner at Palomino on a Saturday evening. Our reservation was at 7PM. We were seated very quickly even though we were five or so minutes late due to horrible parking in downtown Indy due to the weekend Colts game and a large convention. Unfortunately the evening went downhill reasonably quickly. I would... More

A very nice place to have real Italian pizza with very slim and crispy crust and original fresh tomato and free cheeses as well, as for the desert bread podding it's very special and must to have.

I visit Palomino for dinner every time I'm in Indy, and sometimes I even go back the next day for lunch. I'm a big fan and have been for years. Palomino has delicious, creative dishes, great service and a warm ambiance. On a recent visit to Indy with my husband, however, we were persuaded by some locals to go to... More

Our entrees were quite tasty and the ambience is great, the incredibly poor service, however made the evening very unpleasant. Wine was returned because it had a gnat in it, the replacement wine also came with a gnat in it. It was a glass of chardonnay, so it was pretty obvious. Service was very slow. Appetizers were served five minutes... More

Love...love...love Palomino's! They have an incredible mushroom soup appetizer and everything has been fabulous. We even went there for Thanksgiving with our extended family 3 years ago and it was a great time.

My wife remembered Palomino from a visit long ago so we gave it a try. The restaurant has a nice interior and ambiance. The food service was a bit slow and which is never a good thing with small, hungry kids. Nice drink and wine menu. The kids menu options is limited but ok. The humus platter was ok but... More

We have spent a long weekend in Indy and chose Palomino as a backup plan due to not being able to get into our first choice. Boy, were we glad! Great waiter, superb food and treatment of it, and our bill was about 2/3 of those of previous nights. In particular, great mushroom soup & crab bisque, a trout preparation... More

We've been going to Palomino in downtown Indy for many years. Although, it certainly seems to us that it has steadily and slowly digressed off of its strengths and into mediocrity. Tonight, the service was slow from the start. It did not improve as the night went on, in fact, our server, let's call her Lauren, became more and more... More

Group of friends getting together before a night on the town. Beverage choices were great, menu selection even better. We were all pleased and will return.
