  • "The food is always very good. Anytime I try something I had not before had, I almost always like it. Had a new drink tonight - a Watermelon Basil Mojito. I will definitely have that again!"

  • "Love the atmosphere and the ambiance. Waiters are awesome and helpful. Very nice rum, tequila and wine selection."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "LOVED this place. We were looking for something different and found Paladar. Everything that hit my palate was an explosion of flavor from the specialty mojito to that day's guacamole with an infusion of shrimp and basil to the Rum Glazed Cuban Pork with the Coconut-Mango Rice. If I only had left room for dessert! If you are foodie or just looking for some good ol' comfort food, anyone can find something to eat on their diverse menu. This is a MUST TRY place."

  • "There were 6 of us. To start with the waitress was not paying sufficient attention and when we asked her about forgotten items she seemed as though she had never heard the order before. The Mexican soup is normally delicious. It arrived without any spice or flavor whatsoever, and we could not find her for 15 minutes to rectify the matter. My mixed grill was perfect, but could have been served more quickly off the fire. Dessert menu boring. Good expresso. My 4th time there--only not great experience. Oh, and serving crew was totally confused and I guess the waitress was not clear about who was to get what."

  • "Service was prompt and courteous. The space was way bigger than I had imagined but the ambience still managed to make it feel cozy. It was our first time visiting, so our waiter Tim walked us through with food and drink recommendations while never making us feel rushed. The food also had the great taste that only comes with freshness. The drink menu was mind blowing and even though we didn't have dessert we're already planning on going back to try some."

  • "Several of my co-diners had been there and previously enjoyed their experience. The newbies too were excited, loved their food and plan to come back. Being a vegetarian, it has a nice selection of choices for someone like me."

  • "We made reserverations and then they say us by a big party by t he outdoor dining at this small table. I was like no way! If u are going out and spending money, we want a nice table that is away from big crowds. I mean we had reservations and to give us that table! Those host/hostess should be talked to and have more sense."

  • "Try the Blackened Fish Tacos. Fantastic light fare. Spicy Guac just rounds it off. After work cocktails and Happy Hour are a good time."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Being Latin, I am always suspect of "Latin" eateries especially when I walk through the door and I am the only Latino in the building. The food had a mix of Latin flavor from different places like Mexico, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, but was not authentic Latin American food. Aside from that, the food was good and they make a fine Mojito. The atmosphere is festive and the service was also good."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We dined for lunch & some of us enjoyed items off the brunch menu...was a bit skeptical at first, as have only had lunch & dinner items, yet was pleasantly surprised! Guacamole & salsa verde are a must:). Our server was friendly & attentive. Only disappointment was the mimosas. One other person in our party ordered the strawberry & was pleased. I, however, thought they were just too sweet. Overall, an excellent & consistent place to dine!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food was ok but not as good as you think it would be. Also the waitress took forever to come to our table for everything. I will probably not be coming back"

  • "Gaucamole is really good! Sweet potatoe tacos are awesome!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Normally a reliable spot for a fun dinner. This time the food was very ordinary -- my shrimp and grits was soup-like. Also the waiter kept barging into our conversation, was slow in getting us drinks and then showed up with the wrong order. Not horrible experience, just need to tighten things up and not let their success let the standards slip."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Really yummy food. But WAY too loud in the restaurant to enjoy a family meal."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We enjoyed lunch on the patio. Server was attentive & our meal was prepared just as described in the menu. Not our first time dining here; Paladar is consistent with super service & food preparation. The guacamole & salsa are a must! If you can attend their happy hour, get there early, as the bars fills up! Great happy hour specials!"

  • "One if our best restaurant meals this summer. We eat vegan food with no added oil. When I emailed ahead, they made suggestions that resulted in a delicious meal that complied with our dietary needs. Guacamole was terrific!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Always good food & cocktails, I will continue to visit. Favorite fish tacos and the guacamole appetizer"

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We came to Paladar for lunch because we had other errands to do nearby. While the house made chips and guac, kids meals, and my rum glazed Cuban pork were excellent, my wife's salad was just OK, and our service was dreadfully slow. We saw at least two other parties seated after us that got their food before we did. When a manager was alerted to the problem, he simply said that our food would be out next, but did nothing else to address the problem."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Had Friday night dinner at Paladar during trip to Cleveland. Cordially greeted & promptly seated outside, as requested. Waiter was pleasant & fairly attentive, but service from him, the bar, & kitchen was slow overall, esp. as we were dining late and the place was not crowded at all. Noticed adjacent diners similarly frustrated. Surprisingly, the extensive rum menu lacked Barbancourt, so had margarita instead; delish. Ditto the fresh guacamole, served w/crispy house-made mixed chips (SO good, esp. the plantain chips). We had Argentinian mixed grill; skirt steak, chicken & chorizo were all good, but chimichurri on grilled veg tasted briny/pickly (yuck!) rather than of lime/herb; bland rice and flour tortillas were a waste of carbs."

    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "If you like Latin American/South American food, you'll enjoy this place. Happy hour is a great deal (but get there early. You won't find a seat if you arrive past 6) and the regular menu has lots of great options."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We were again treated to 2 excellent food choices: skirt steak & a special fish dish. Both were beautifully plated & delicious. The service was at its usual best. I had the traditional mojito; my wife had the special margarita. We thoroughly enjoyed the guacamole appetisor. We've eaten at this restaurant many times & the food, ambience & service were excellent. We will definately return - maybe next time for lunch."

  • "tough to beat the easy and casual atmosphere, very good latin food and excellent service. great place to spend a summer weekend evening."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Paladar. We had an OpenTable reservation for 7:45, and we arrived by 7:15 and had planned to sit at the bar until our table would be ready. Surprisingly, they seated us right away, which was nice. From there, everything else was excellent. Our waitress did a great job in explaining some of the more popular dishes. Great drink menu, food, atmosphere, and service. Will definitely be returning."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "this place is great but they are doing drinking wine a miss service. Keep to beer and alcoholic drinks don't even try to supply wine or if you do at least keep it properly and not at 75 degrees"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I've come here a few times for special occasions both in a larger group and with just a few people. The food is always well prepared. I think they may be skimping on their guacamole. A few years ago I remember getting more in a serving and not having it include green tomatillos (filler?). All in all, I'd come back. Great dining experience and great service."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Our experience was great, from walking in the door to our dinner service! Delicious dinners were delish (all 3!) will definitely return!! A fun dinner out with the girls!!!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Perfect meal from start to finish...mojito and pomegranate ginger mojito went well with the super-fresh guacamole appetizer. Short ribs and rum-glazed pulled pork over mango coconut rice were excellent -- flavors went well, and the meat was fork tender in both dishes. Superb attention (but not intrusive) from the waiter..including noticing that we thought the coffee was cold, so he brewed a fresh pot. The Mexican chocolate cake was huge (we shared it and had leftovers) and delicious. A bit pricy ($78 before tip for 2 with 2 drinks, 2 coffees, 2 entrees, small guacamole, and 1 dessert)...but worth it for a special treat. The coffee is delicious, too (even when it's not hot!)."

  • "We discovered this place online when looking for vegetarian food while driving on the interstate. Food was outstanding. We had a quinoa and black bean burger, delicious guacamole and chips made from vegetables. For dessert we had some tasty flan. Our waiter, Jed, was excellent, very professional and personable. The bar manager, Peter, came out to the patio where we dined, and asked how things were. We would definitely return to Paladar in this very nice shopping area."

  • "Went here for our anniversary and were not disappointed! Our waiter was excellent: friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was beautiful and delicious. My husband had the feijoada and I had the cuban pork in the rum sauce. We had dessert as well...also excellent. I would definitely want to return here!"

  • "This is true Latin food. They also make a good capirinha, always refreshing in warm weather. Their outdoor patio is a favorite of ours. Out waiter, Tim, was terrific and fun. Only problem... they took my favorite dish, pulled chicken with aioli, plantains and arrepas off the menu!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "A nicese eclectic mix of elements - Spanish, Mexican, Brazilian, Cuban dishes. presented with style. I had the Braised Beef Ropa Vieja, and a spinach/hearts of palm salad. Generous portions of both. A nice blend of flavors in both dishes."

  • "My family is made up of mostly vegetarians. There were plenty of options for all of us and the waitress was a sweetheart. She put up with the group not-wanting / then wanting to switch tables; and also editing our order a couple times."
