“Great Happy Hour Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

The Palomino boasts a terrific restaurant with an upscale menu and great service along with an extensive happy hour selection of great appetizers and smaller menu items. Sometimes the wait for seating in the bar area (for the happy hour menu) can be a little long but its worth the wait!

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

We've eaten here several times and always have had a good experience. We most recently had breakfast, and our server was friendly and efficient. He was very helpful in explaining and suggesting menu items to my kids. I didn't use it, but they also have a Martini buffet that looked very interesting. All in all, we will be back!

“So good we went twice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

We were staying at the Westin and were just looking for a light dinner after leaving the mall. We went to Palomino and were greeted by our waiter with a sample of their wine of the night. Although I didn't order it in favor of a cocktail, it was very good and reasonably priced. We each had a bleu cheese salad and shared a pizza. The salad was perfectly dressed and fresh and the pizza crust was thin and crispy. We enjoyed it so much we went back two nights later for a cup of soup and another pizza.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Went to Palomino for dinner tonight while in town on business. I had been to their San Francisco location years ago and thought it would be a safe bet. We walked right in with no reservations as there were plenty of empty tables. I mention that because you would think the service would be great since there were not many other customers. Sadly, that was not true. Our server disappeared several times and when she did pass by ignored that the empty plates or glasses. Food was ok, but not worth the price. There are lots of other options in Bellevue so I would suggest skipping Palomino. You are not missing much.

“Best Happy Hour in town!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Happy Hour all day, every day - can't beat that! Pretty basic food and beverage offerings, but worth it for the price. I really only come to this restaurant for Happy Hour - not sure if the quality of food is worth the full dinner price.
