Everyone loved their meals.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day at PaladarPaladar is my favorite Cleveland restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. My family normally makes reservations here for any special occasions that come up. We had a great Mother's Day brunch and would definitely recommend to others!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWish it was closerJust by chance, we tried Paladar Latin Kitchen and found it a must return to dinner spot. There are so many wonderful selections we still want to try. With the four of us, we ended up sharing drinks, appetizers and the main course. No lies, it was wonderful. No disappointments in the quality, helping sizes, preparation and type of food. We have only found one other east coast area restaurant with similar types and quality of food, and that was in New York City over 15 years ago. Wish your restaurant was closer, but worth the 5 hour round trip drive nonetheless.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat very timewe go to Paladar often and are never disappointed. very solid in every dimension - never a slip up in food or service. everyone is treated very well - regular or first timer. always honor reservations without a wait despite some pretty busy evening.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentI have been to this restaurant many times and I have never been disappointed .

Yum!Uniquely inspired Latin cuisine. The homemade chips are awesome as is every item I have tried on the menu.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good. But, service was...Went there to celebrate a friends birthday. Our server was taking care of 4 parties of 4 or less, and then a party of around 10. He seemed to be very overwhelmed and didn't pay much attention to our table. He made a few errors on items that were ordered, and even brought one wrong item. We didn't say anything. But, when a person at our table mentioned that they were unhappy with a particular item, our waiter didn't even offer another item instead, or offer to have it taken off of the bill. There were a few other things that made the overall service experience disappointing. In general though, the restaurant and ambiance were nice, the food was very good. But, the service could have been better.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good service, cocktailsVery good service, cocktails & food. Would definitely go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite!

We began with the guacamole trio with chips as an appetizer and were quite impressed by its lovely presentation and wonderful flavors. It was an unusual appetizer and thoroughly enjoyed by all four of us. The brisket was delicious, seasoned very differently with robust flavor. My wife had the fish tacos which she enjoyed, however, she had one with a very "fishy" flavor. The condiments on the tacos were great and well-flavored. Our dinner companions thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We felt the atmosphere was lively and fun. Our waiter, whose name I cannot remember at this time, was excellent. He checked on us with frequency to be sure our dining experience was pleasurable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMUniquely wonderful!The food was interesting in a great way. Service was perfect - there when needed, but not hanging over us.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLow Oil RequestThe service and food is outstanding. The place was packed with customers on a Sunday evening. My wife requested a low oil vegan dish and the sous chef came out to make sure she got what she wanted.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMChips Man!The food was fantastic! One of the more interesting things about this restaurant is the chips they serve with the salsa and guacamole, they are made in house from plantains.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were great. The only downside was the noise level was loud at times. Maybe its because everyone appeared to been having a great time.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodGuacamole and sangria are consistently fresh and outstanding! This is my go-to restaurant for business and personal. People I work with from out of town always ask to go to Paladar when in Cleveland!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food selection withGreat food selection with excellent traditional Latin dishes as well as some hybrids. Guac with fried plantains is a staple.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYou Must Try the Bread Pudding!Palidar is a restaurant you can depend on for always providing good service and Excellent food. They offer daily specials that are a good addition to their already exceptional menu offering a lot of variety and excellent prices.

The guacamole is outstanding. Everything was very fresh. Service was attentive but not oppressive - our server was knowledgeable about the dishes. Can't wait to go back again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLatin American at its BestThe food at Paladar was very good, and very satisfying. I liked the vegetable chips, a housemade chip blend of plantain, yucca, malanga and tortilla, and spicy guacamole that we munched on as we scanned the menu. For my meal, I opted for the appetizer of Brazillian Churrasco Trio: Grilled skirt steak, chicken, and chorizo sausage on skewers with housemade chimichurri sauce, and served with grilled fingerling potato salad and tortillas. My husband had the Feijoada Stew: Brazil's National Dish that blends slow roasted pork, spicy chorizo sausage and black beans with housemade pickled jalapeños and sofrito veggies with rice. Well made, and well-liked.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as usualuStopped in to celebrate our 5-year anniversary since this is where we had our first date. Manager and bartender were fantastic- comped our guacamole and drinks, since it was a special occasion. I guess that's why we go there so often, since they pay attention to details and make you feel so special! Plus, the soft tacos were amazing and everything else we ate was great!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the priceLove this place, everything about it is good, the food is unique and flavorful, we usually get a few things to share and I've loved everything. It's a little pricey for an everyday meal, but the food is well worth the price.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good. I thoughtThe food was good. I thought the shrimp and corn cakes were great. There was a bit of a wait for a table, otherwise service was top notch.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are wonderful! They haveThey are wonderful!

Service is always excellent, food is flavorful and served at the right temperature every time. There is a lot to choose from on the menu and the "specials" change often. A must try is the shrimp and grits appetizer on the specials menu. There was enough for a meal plus extra to take home for a late-night snack.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Paladar's,We always enjoy Paladar's, and the new menu is more expansive than ever. We particularly enjoyed the brunch entries. The food is excellent and the staff is superb.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious for the eye and palateWe are always happy with the food we get at Paladar. This place is just a little different than most other places in the area. The atmosphere and menu offerings are very unique and the drinks are fantastic. It can be a little loud, and sometimes I think the seating is not very comfortable (we always end up sitting on wooden chairs). It's a great place for a good meal when you're in the mood for something different, and want to be in a lively environment. It is probably not a great place to sit for hours on end, having deep conversation.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined at Paladar manyWe have dined at Paladar many times. This evening my spouse tried the shrimp and grits special and she was very happy with this section. I had their newer version of the rio style chicken tacos. The overwhelming flavor was the coconut milk that the chicken was cooked in. It was an interesting take on this dish but not one that everyone will like.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a special occasionWe celebrated a special occasion and the food, service and ambiance was perfect.
Thank you or backing off the salt! Much better!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA+Really blew my mind, so delicious and the service was excellent. Our server was extremely attentive, checking back frequently and the other staff worked together seamlessly to give us a great dining experience. Started with the spicy guac, mussels and tostones for apps (both of our favorite part of the meal) and had the Brazillian stew (no idea how to spellit anymore!) and the crusted tilapia with churros for dessert. All very flavorful and fabulous we will be back soon!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Paladar!!!Absolutely love this place!

Our son who travels to Brazil several times a year says Paladar is as close to authentic Latin food as it gets in the US.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the service was veryAlthough the service was very good they seemed to be under staffed the night I was there. Every server working was running around appeared to spend no time with their tables. Just drop the food or drink & go.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
