I travel on my own a lot on business and like to get out of the hotel and eat locally. I booked The Palomino for Saturday night online, clearly stating that I was a table for 1 and the experience was mixed. I appreciate that on Saturday night, the restaurant wants to turn tables and I expect a single person isn't going to be a big spender but I really felt that they could not wait to get me gone and the next customer in. The pasta I had was very nice and I do not like to rush dinner but I also don't take ages. However, not only did I not get my water refreshed, the very nice but obviously busy waitress came along before I finished and asked if I wanted my check and put her hand on my plate and asked if I was done. I know I should have said 'no I haven't' but her hand was out and I just felt not so very welcome overall, so let her take it
I was in and out in 40 minutes!
Plus there was only one loo working so I spent 10 of those minutes in a queue in the ladies
So a real shame. I have been coming to Cincinnati for several months now and during the week, this is not a very busy restaurant so they have lost a potential customer mid week. As I say, the usual great American service but not really.
