Diner Reviews
  • "Myself and four friends met for dinner at Palomino. The food was good. The service however was not. I asked repeated for lemon for my water. It took about 30 minutes. Several guests ran out of water and had to ask for refill and wait a very long time for more. This happened a few more times. We had to wait and wait to order food or reorder wine or cocktails. The waitress rarely came to the table. We were finished with our appetizers waiting to order our dinner, wondering how long could it possibly take?!? Our reservation was early and the restaurant was not busy. So after spending $56 for an appetizer an overpriced salad and 2 glasses of wine I don't feel the value was worth the service I received. I won't recommend Palomino to my friends."

  • "We went to Palomino at Lincoln Square on a rainy, but busy, Saturday night. First, parking was a total nightmare. There was insufficient parking in Lincoln Square so we had to park at Bellevue Square. Once we arrived, our table was not ready. We were seated in the back of the restaurant adjacent to a large, excessively noisy group, which reduced the experience and dominated the attention of the wait staff. The food was quite good and reasonably priced, but the atmosphere was not enjoyable. We will try Palomino again and hope this is not the usual experience. We were disappointed with the loud atmosphere and lack of attention from the wait staff, but did enjoy the food. Hopefully, it is better next time."

  • "The service and food were average for Bellevue. In no way was dinning there memorable from the food, or service, or décor. I would not take my customer there again as price vs. value was some what limited."

  • "We visited the Bellevue Palomino on a very busy Saturday night. Got our table very quickly, and greeted right away. Wait staff was very attentive, knew the menu well, made excellent suggestions too. Our food was excellent. Prepared very nicely, taste was great. Thanks for making our date night a great one."

  • "Everyone loved the Round table, great for discussions. We had seen a Movie and wanted review it as a group The Open Restaurant was too loud to have a discussion we could not hear what people were saying across the table We all loved the food, Salads were great and interesting. I had Chicken Marsala and I thought it was very nicely prepared I would give the Restaurant a 8 on a scale of 1-10"

  • "Food was excellent & they placed our large party away from more crowded areas so it was perfect! Service had a couple hiccups, but made up for it with a free two free desserts (one for the birthday girl). Overall good experience! Thank you."

  • "The evening started off with the server not showing up for around 10 minutes. The server seemed more interested in conversing with other employees than taking care of our table. The food went from being an enjoyable meal to something that looked like it was thrown together without much attention to detail and you could tell the restaurant has reduced the quality of its engredients to a much lower price point. The final piece was the restroom had not been cleaned for hours and it was a definite slow night with around 15 tables occupied when we arrived at 7:15. Paper towels all over the floor and counter as the trash receptical was over flowing. Attention to detail, food and service has gone down hill dramatically. Too bad."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We had a great experience. My only complaint was that we were seated by a door that was used during the night. It was a windy rainstorm outside and made for a chilly dinner experience. Also the floor around our table was not cleaned before we sat down. Other than that, a great experience."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I have not dined there often and usually prefer a quieter location. I was disappointed that I wanted a healthy salmon meal and that the salmon was farm raised? I appreciated them telling me the truth but very disappointed. Had a hard time finding my super healthy lunch but my client recommended it and loves it there. I ordered the crab cakes and left hungry."

  • "Food portions were smaller than what we normally experience. Food was good but some at our table left hungry."

  • "This past Friday five of us order the Shrimp Salad from the daily specials menu. We all agreed it was fabulous! The prawns were perfectly cooked, the greens were garnished with beet chips and the green lightly dressed with a vinaigrette. Service was attentive but not rushed allowing us enjoy an extended conversation post lunch."

  • "Greeted & seated friendly & quickly then wait began-over 10 min before h2o glasses filled & that from hostess. Waitress invisible until after 30 min of seating. Seemed friendly at 1st but would disappear for long times. Ordered many apps & salads. Hair in one, THE MOST BLAND HUMMUS EVER, of six apps ordered crab cakes the only 1 worth it, salads both had wilty lettuce. Voiced some concerns to waitress, she actually tried arguing & looked at me like I was lying about hair. I'm a foodie and told her what for. She smiled a terse smile & took them away. After, manager hovered-uncomfortable! Drink I had- spiced peartini- delish. Compt'd two apps I complained about, per standard but still not worth it. Spent more time on boring decor than menu."

  • "Good food in nice surroundings with very good service. Not as loud as some of the other restaurants in the area, so a good choice for a quieter evening out."

  • "Although this time we sent there for Sunday brunch we had experience there before for lunch and dinner also. Overall we always enjoyed the things we ordered and the servers were always friendly and helpful. We also liked their reward program and that keeps us going back."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "The food was delicious and served very fast. The server was prompt and checked in on us just enough but we didn't have to go looking for him either. The only slight downside was that we were seated next to a large party of 16yr olds that were having a party and they were a little more rambunctious than I would have liked, but we survived it and I will definitely return and highly recommend this location."

  • "Even though our server was very busy she was pleasant and attentive. She quickly and professionally handled any request that was made."

  • "This place has fairly good food, the service is good, but the ambience is always a bit casual/uninspiring. We came with our 10 year old and were stuck in the furthest corner booth available. If he was 3 I could see the sense in this, but at 10... not so much. The waiter kept telling us we were lucky to be placed where we were, when I asked if we could move, as it was nice and quiet. I gave up, ate and left."

  • "My husband and I had discovered a Gift Card for Palomino that we wanted to use so we went to dinner on a Saturday night in early January. The food was quite good as was the wine and the service was superb, but we found the noise level to be higher than we would have preferred. We're both very middle-aged and I suppose we've reached that point in our lives that we prefer a quieter environment to relax and have a meal. But if we were younger, it would not have bothered us and would have been a very enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "The food was largely tasteless, surprising since we eat a Palomino a fair amount and usually have a great meal. The calamari had no flavor. The waiter forgot about our drinks and we didn't get them until our meal arrived. The Seafood Paella was bland. We had to send the bread back because it was so hard that we couldn't bite into it - we normally love the bread. Very disappointing experience for a reasonably high priced meal."

  • "We always visit Palomino during the Christmas Season, and it never disappoints. Our party of 9 was seated promptly, then we all got up and left to watch Snowflake Lane. Our server was gracious about this and provided a paper snowflake to allow the staff know that we would be back. The food was tremendous - I enjoyed the prime rib and prawns. I love that they have great menu options for kiddos - my two had the grilled chicken and loved it! Our server made the whole evening - she was so fantastic (Crystal)! She read our table well and did a great job anticipating and meeting our needs."

  • "All the food we ordered was simply great. Full vibrant flavors, rich sauces, but not over powering. The flavors in each menu item complemented each other well. The Tiramisu is a must!"
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Very disappointed in our food overall. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and he said it tasted burnt. Service was very good, but for the price we expected top notch food and they didn't deliver. Don't think we will return to Palomino."

  • "Our first time to Palomino. The server was excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered the chicken marsala and it was absolutely fantastic. Both the server and another server that had helped us said that this was their favorite dish and I can see why. Delicious mushroom sauce over the chicken and the pasta side had spices that were out of this world. My wife ordered Paella. It also was very good. We happened to be there at 6:30PM on an evening just after Christmas, and we were able to watch Snowflake Lane from our table. We loved our dining experience."

  • "Chose the restaurant not only for the great food, but for the big windows that bring in every bit of northwest Winter light. From the calamari, to the Portobello soup, to the scallops, the food was excellent and the service was expertly attentive. A great Christmas meal with the family."

  • "the appetizer was greasy and bland (crab cakes), the salmon seemed frozen as it was mushy, the potatoes were lukewarm at best and the server was not very efficient; she forgot what she was doing.......we received no bread, didn't fill our water until we were done and thought we ordered dessert when we did not ( as she started to walk away with our doggie bag )................."

  • "My husband and I had our Christmas dinner there. Even though the place was packed we were seated punctually at the time of our scheduled reservation. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. Since it was Christmas there was a special menu but it still contained a broad range of selections. The only negative was that there was no garden salad on the menu. I don't know if their regular menu does have a garden salad. Hopefully it does. We enjoyed the meal and the wait staff seemed to go out of their way to make our visit festive and bright."

  • "We chose this restaurant to meet with our daughter and son- in-law as it was midway between our homes. Due to working schedules this was our only option on this day and Palomino did not disappoint us! The Christmas Day menu was gave us lots of options so it allowed for varied meal preferences, which worked great in our case. The food we ordered was delicious. Our server was super friendly and helpful. In fact, all the staff were very friendly from the moment we entered. Definitely will go back here another time."
