  • "The food is fantastic, me and my Fiance go there every month to celebrate our Anniversary and WE LOVE THIS PLACE. The staff is always friendly, we have never had a bad dining experience. Everything on their menu is great. We have chosen this spot as our Anniversary spot, and our first date spot almost four years ago. GREAT PLACE!"

  • "Paladar is the only place in Annapolis to get most of the dishes on their menu. They are unique in this area. The food is also very good, very tasty. We started with the mixed seafood ceviche. Their ceviche is great, every time. We always get one of them to start. For dinner, my wife had the braised beef ropa vieja, and I had a crispy beef jalapeno stir fry special. Everything we've had there every time we've been there has been so tasty. Even the coffee drinks after dinner were delicious. We do have one complaint about this visit, which is that they brought our entrees just before we finished our appetizer. I'd like a few minutes after the appetizer before the main course. Even with that little problem, we'll be back."

  • "High energy restaurant and bar. Food is great. However, if good conversation is needed, it will be very difficult in this restaurant. Noise level is high. There was difficulty in hearing our server and him hearing us in addition to conversation at our table."

  • "My husband and I treated an out-of-town guest to drinks and a very pleasant meal here. the margaritas and mojitos were both well made. I had the braised beef ropa vieja and it was fabulous. You CAN eat lightly too - our guest had one of the two chicken salads offered on the menu - can't recall which one, but she said it was great. It was a Sunday evening, so it wasn't crowded, but I pass by this place all the time and see that it can get very busy. There is a patio area that we will try when the weather permits."

  • "Well, I had written a mediocre (perhaps even poor) review of the restaurant on this site. Shortly afterwards I was contacted by a manager who apologized for the experience and offered me a gift card for a return visit. Went back this past weekend and wow what a difference. They had obviously flagged me for special treatment and they did a splendid job. Everything we ordered was good and the Braised Beef Ropa Vieja was excellent. The service was fantastic and they sent over a complimentary Cuban Bread Pudding that was to die for. Looking around the restaurant all seemed to be enjoying and although we certainly benefited from the special treatment, I'd say this place has gotten it act together and I highly recommend."

  • "I've been to Paladar for Happy Hour numerous times and it is always a fantastic experience. Everything is delicious, especially the creative selection of mojitos and margaritas. This time, we went for a family dinner. There were 5 of us and we all tried different things and everyone was incredibly happy. Service was good, Lindsay was knowledgeable, professional, and attentive. The only thing we waited a bit for were the drinks, and I just assumed it was because the bartender got backed up."

  • "I have been to Paladar many times and have always enjoyed my food. However, this past visit was disappointing. I always order the braised beef tacos because they are wonderful. Well this time I decided to try something different and ordered the braised duck tacos. I love duck so I thought they would be fantastic. They literally tasted like NOTHING. I was shocked. I asked the waiter to bring me some pickled jalapenos and hot sauce, loaded them up with spice and choked down 2 of the 3. In hindsight I probably should have sent them back but did not want to embarrass my companion. Overall, I would recommend Paladar and will definitely be returning but will not order the duck tacos. The guacamole and sweet potato donuts were fantastic as usual!"

  • "Always a nice place to return to. Still bait noisy. Bad acoustics at this place. Food and drinks are very good as is the service. Put some acoustic ceiling panels in to reduce noise levels."

  • "Awesome gluten free menu. Very accommodating chefs and waitstaff. We had gazpacho and the Argentinian grill."

  • "We were to have a fairly large group and Katylee was more than helpful to accomodate or group size by finding a more suitable table despite the restaurant being pretty crowded. Our first server needs additional training and attitude adjustment while our second server was more than helpful and entertaining. Fantastic drinks and excellent food."

  • "We were there for brunch on Sunday. It wasn't crowded at all so our service was good and we weren't rushed to vacate our table. As it gets more popular that may not happen. We lingered over our meal as we had not seen each other in over a year. The food was good and the guacamole delicious! I would go back again."

  • "Our party of four each had a different item and each had good flavor! We would return again and again! Also, the bartender makes a tasty drink..."

The guacamole was also great and the ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for a girls night out. I am definitely going back to this restaurant."

  • "There were some drinks not offered by the glass, but the server didn't recommend another drink of the same taste to replace them. He also forgot to take two drink orders from two of the guests from the table. We had to ask for appetizer plates and silver wear as well as constantly call the server over for items we needed."

  • "Had a great birthday dinner with wife and three daughters (22, 20, 19). Great meal and a wonderful server!!!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food & drinks were very good, as usual, and the Latin band was a perfect addition for the mardi gras/carnival celebration. However, the service was a bit rushed and "off" that evening, e.g., our entrees arrived before we had finished our appetizer, the dessert arrived when we had just started eating our entrees, and there was a major problem with the check at the end (i.e., we had ordered the special 3-course prix-fixe menu, but our waitress charged us the regular a la carte price for our meal)."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Salmon was excellent. Love the grits. Beef skewers very tender and tasty. Always have a difficult time getting my water glass refilled though. This was my sixth time at Paladar and four of those times I asked for more water and the waiter never brought it. Otherwise good."

  • "I have been to Paladar multiple times and every time seems better than the last. I have never had a bad meal or experience. The food is delicious. Great drinks, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. I highly recommend the Paladar."

  • "First time visit and I was pleasantly surprised. The guacamole trio dips were delicious served with plenty of plantain chips. My shredded pork was slightly spicy but the subtle sweetness of the sauce made the dish perfect. I will be back soon!"

  • "They have a good specialty drink selection, though the drinks are a bit pricey. Food is very good, you get plenty. We stayed long enough we shared an appetizer and dessert. Dessert selection was also very good and more original then most places. By the time we finished half the bill was drinks and it was only 5-6 between the two of us."

  • "Rum bar.....excellent mojitos and Caiparhinas. Coconut chorizo mussels.....extraordinarily tasty. Plantain encrusted tilapia .......delicious. Chicken a bit dry but flavorful. Lived the rum pinespple upside fown cake. Ambiance is very nice but a bit noisy for tslking. Our waiter Stephen was fantastic. Will definitely go back."

  • "We've eaten here a number of times. They seem to get better each time we come. The bar is fun with really great mojitos. Everything is made well and tastes fresh. The service is very efficient if not polished. If you're in the mood for some Latin flavor, this is the place. They even have complimentary valet parking right across the street."

  • "I had the Feijoada Stew for the 1st time, and all I can say is that it is something to dream about. The type of entrée that you patronize an establishment, simply for that. It is a spicy blend of pork and chorizo, served in a brown sauce with tortillas."

Because of the snow storm my original birthday plans fell through, but my hubby, knowing that I love Latin food and have been to Paladar before and was pleased, suggested I try to see if they had an opening... And they did! As usual, food, drinks, and service was outstanding! This restaurant is definitely on my must do list!"

  • "We love Paladar and try to go as often as we can. The food is great and the servers seem to enjoy their jobs, and it shows in their level of service. Consistently good. The bacon guacamole that is on this month's specials menu combines two of my favorite foods and is outstanding."
