This Mother's Day I took my neighbor to brunch.....we usually meet once a month in the bar area for Happy Hour but this was special. The buffet was delicious except for the chicken marsala which was cold and bland. Everything else was superb. I made a reservation and no wait time. The staff was friendly, attentive and made the day extraordinary.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Pizza & Lamb GnocchiHad the Bianco as an appetizer. It is plenty of food to split with three people. Tried the special of the night, Lamb Gnocchi. It was delicious, and the portions were reasonable, not huge (which is a good thing in my mind).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a 7:30 reservationWe had a 7:30 reservation on a busy Saturday night in downtown Cincinnati. Traffic caused us to run a few minutes late so we called and we were told that if we weren't there by 7:45 they'd give our table away. We made it but were told when we arrived that they gave our table away and there wasn't another available and we waited an additional 20 minutes. The food was ok and the service was fine once we got seated. Management needs to be more efficient when busy,5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPaliminoes after concert perfectionWent with friends & family to Palimoes after attending May Festival Chorus & CSO Concert. Even though we were there late in night, great food & service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressed-overall!Diverse menu, well priced for portions and offerings. Very friendly wait-staff and manager. Pleasant environment--although the tables are close together you don't feel like you're dining on top of your neighbor. Great view of Fountain Square if you can get seated in the center of the restaurant. Was our first time dining here and would definitely come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday dinnerThe staff was wonderful and polite. As soon as we got seated the first question was if we were attending the show at the arnoff center to make sure we were on time. The food was perfect and I even had time to enjoy a cup of coffe before I had to leave for the show. I look forward to coming back to try the pizza.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice locaton, food wasVery nice locaton, food was good, not gourmet.

When I made my reservation online I noted in the special notes section that someone in my party was celebrating a birthday. I wasn't sure if this would result in anything but was hoping for a happy birthday wish. What we got was better. When we arrived they had reserved a window table with a great view for our party, placed ribbon on the table and also happy birthday cards. It was a wonderful treat. Our server was energetic and made sure we had a great time. I have to say I really didn't care for the pizza but the grown up mac-n-cheese was great. Overall I would recommend.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and serviceFood was excellent and service was superb.

Thank you4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe started with the ArtichokeWe started with the Artichoke and Crab dip which was excellent. The large pita crisps worked well with the dip. I ordered the mushroom soup which didn't live up to the hype-I thought it would be richer and it didn't have the full-bodied taste I expected. My wife had the Salmon and Shrimp Scampi special which was very good and I had the Paella and added Scallops to it. It was also very good; a bit on the spicy side and after having the appetizer and soup, I left some in the bowl. We were seated at a two-top table beside the window that overlooked Fountain Square--very nice! All in all, a good meal and good atmosphere.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service...second timeGreat service...second time I've asked for a "window seat", got it both times.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our 4th year eatingThis is our 4th year eating at Palomino's for Easter Brunch and as usual it was wonderful! Food is delicious and our server (Dia) was fantastic -- will definitely be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!I took my boyfriend to Palomino's for his birthday and I made reservations online. I requested a table near a window and told them in the reservation that it was his birthday. As soon as we arrived we were seated almost immediately. The table (near the windows) was decorated with confetti, which I really appreciated. The food was hot out off the stove! I was concerned about that because of previous reviews that I read, but the food was delicious. Get the Chicken under a brick, it was amazing. We had a complimentary dessert for his b-day. Overall wonderful experience I will DEFINITELY be coming back! Thank you Palomino!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good meal with fun serversvery good meal with fun servers (Brian in the bar!)3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect, as always!We had a quiet lunch on Saturday afternoon.

It is one of our favorite places to dine downtown!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be a terrificContinues to be a terrific location for any kind of situation. We were having a lunch meeting that actually ran a little long and not once did we feel like the staff was rushing us out of the dining room to prep for later service. Our server was attentive without hovering and all of our needs were met without feeling like we were looking or waiting for him to return. I enjoyed the soup and pasta lunch combo. The portions were good and the food was hot when it was supposed to be hot and not when it wasn't. I would recommend Palomino's to anyone looking for a downtown place to dine. It continues to be a stand out location for the Downtown Cincinnati Area.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service by Nikki atGreat service by Nikki at the bar. Great pizza from the happy hour menu.

The food was good except my pork waa a bit overcooked.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething for everyoneReally enjoyed dining here. Nice view over the plaza lights. Menu changes monthly and a nice selection of really different creations where you can "add" things like shrimp, chicken, etc. to personalize the meal. Colleague had a delicious pomodoro pasta with shrimp. Per her request they added onions and spinach and she was a happy person. Wednesdays are half price bottle nights for wine, and we took advantage of an excellent pinot noir from a really nice wine list. I had an incredibly tasty and flavorful paella. Didn't need to add any shrimp or anything. I love it spicy and it was just right, not American bland. We also split a Crab Louie salad as a starter, and it, too was delicious with fresh shrimp and crab. Would definitely come back.1/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a dinner before aThis was a dinner before a show and they were accommodating serving us very promptly. The food was very good.5/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
