Diner Reviews
  • "We were going to a musical that night and they were very attentive knowing we had to make it there by 730pm. Food was great, came out fast, drinks were delish as well! "

  • "Palomino is my favorite place to take guests from out of town -- the food is delicious, the physical location and the interior ambiance are lovely, and the service is always excellent. The menu has a broad range of food types (and prices), and the chef has been gracious on several occasions about making adjustments to accommodate allergies and personal preferences. This is a terrific way of showing people who do not live in Dallas that we eat things other than barbecue and Mexican food. (And it's a terrific place for those of us who live here, too!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. "

  • "We went on a Sunday night, and there wasn't a crowd. Waiter was exceptional, and the food was really good. It was a bit pricey, but worth it."

  • "I had seen quite a few great reviews for this as a romantic dinner location, but it def. wasn't. I had specifically noted that it was for a birthday for my boyfriend, just party of two -- yet we got seated right next to a large loud party -- the restaurant was empty, so it wasn't as if it was due to limited spacing/busy... at least ask "if this is okay or if you prefer somewhere else?" Also, I expect the hostess to look presentable as the first person greet you - very poor ambiance. The waitress herself was nice, however took quite a bit to get our wine and then no refill the water or the wine from the bottle we ordered. Food arrived cold. Def. not a high-end experience or a mom-pop-shop experience where it's a lot more warmer/welcoming."

  • "Three of us went to dinner. The food was outstanding (one of us is an Executive Chef for over 15 years). Each of us had a different entree and all three were VERY pleased with our choices. We had calamari for appetizer, it was wonderful. Our waiter, Nick was very good as well. Attentive, yet not intrusive. Good time had by all."

  • "I live in Fort Worth, so I am not too familiar with downtown Dallas. I organized a dinner party with some family members for a special occasion and chose the Palomino solely because it was close to the workplace of one member of the party. The prices were reasonable and the menu looked good, so I figured why not? The restaurant ended up being fantastic! The bar was packed with the after-work cocktails crowd, but there was plenty of room in the dining room. The decor is excellent, and the service is very friendly. We all enjoyed our food, but mine was the best dish of the night. The braised lamb shank is perhaps the best lamb I've had in a restaurant. This is fine dining without the price tag. I can't say enough good things about it."

  • "Food and service were superb. Chicken Under a Brick and the Flat Bread Pizzas are highly recommended."

  • "We hosted my assistant's birthday lunch and she loved it. Everyone chose the Talapia and it was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. Looking forward to returning soon for dinner, so I can enjoy dessert!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "It was refreshing to go to a restaurant which both has good food, and will freely and willingly make any reasonable substitution which is requested. I wanted the salmon, but did not care for the bean medley which was offered with it. The waiter gladly offered to trade it out for the much more appealing polenta, and it was a great match! It is a real pleasure to go to a "Non -Stuffy" restaurant in Dallas!"

  • "Dining room was fairly empty at 9pm. Waitress was friendly and service was adequate. Couple of things were disappointing though. Watched our main course sit under a heat lamp for almost 10 minutes while we were waiting. Servers were too involved in prep work. Saw one server repeatedly stop through food line and grab food and eat it! At one point he was licking his fingers and then grabbed a stack of plates! I like the food here. It was good, but for their business to be as slow as it was I would of expected better attention. The way we were seated to the proximity of the kitchen allowed us to see almost everything. I would think they would be a little more conscious of their behavior or maybe they just don't care."

  • "Palomino is always a solid choice for entertaining clients and for enjoying a celebration without going over the top. It's a great value, always reliable."

  • "Proximity to the central business district makes this an excellent choice. The food and service were excellent."

  • ""Let's have a Kiki, I wanna have a Kiki, lock the doors tight" but I want to do it a Palomino. I just LOVE Palomino since I discovered it in Minneapolis 20 years ago. It's a great place for friends to gather and kiki, a great place to purpose to you girl or guy, and you eat there alone and not feel isolated. I also love the openess of the resturant but you won't hear a lot of loud chatter, the food is INCREDIBLE, great wine, great Mojato's (I'll have anotha) and awesome service staff. Just maybe need to up their dessert game, although the Tiaramisu is excellent. For the atmosphere, food, service, and area it's the best kept secret in Dallas for lunch and dinner. Oh and the CHOP CHOP Salad is the staple for the resturant is a MUST HAVE!!!"

  • "Tried the salad topped with the salmon, which was great addition. I can also recommend the hummus, which is fresh and chock full of the very healthy spice, cumun ! I will be back!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I always start with the Maytag wedge with the toasted hazelnuts. This visit, I tried the lamb shank but, wish I had split the entree it was so large. As always, I ask for Jeffry. He is exceptional."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Enjoyed the meal (unique grilled chicken salad w/blue cheese) and the visit with old friend in one of my favorite restaurants. Love the complimentary bread and topping."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Dined here several times and it's always a pleasant dining experience."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Things were going great until they seated a large table next to us. Then our service was almost non-existent since our waitress spent too much time tending to the large table and they seemed to have issues with the alcoholic drinks they ordered. We made it clear we need to be out by a certain time to make a show which she originally said would be no problem. Then the large group arrived. The foos was great as usual."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were seated by very nice hostesses, greeted by our server, ordered waters and drinks. We did not see our server for 15 min. He came back said the bar was backed up and did not even bring us our waters. We waited 15 - 20 min when another server asked us if we had been helped. We said we ordered our drinks forever ago, so he said he would at least get us waters. He never came back with waters and we never saw our drinks or were asked if we wanted an appetizer. After waiting 30 - 40 min with no drinks or food, we left and walked to a different restaurant where we had impeccable service and food. We will not be returning."

  • "Visited for my birthday lunch with my office staff and everything was amazing. I have had lunch meetings here and it is always magnificent."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Scallops and braised lamb shank both were very tasty. Small portion on the scallops, too small actually, maybe they were running out? Calamari appetizer was so so at best. What really ruined the evening was the pushy waiter who is probably better suited for a lower end restaurant. From the moment we sat down until the check the waiter was just off on everything - off on timing both of when to order items and when not, how long it took to bring drinks and off on the order which included mushrooms when I specifically asked for none and he confirmed. Wine list is way over priced- $42 for Mark West Pinot and that's one of the cheapest on the list. Way too short of wine list. It was supposed to be a celebratory night but was a big let down."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Our waiter, Nick Bray, did an outstanding job. His service was impeccable. Would return just for his darling smile and excellent food suggestions. The mahi mahi was amazing!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I love this place, it never disappoints. Great food and lovely location!"

  • "Our dinner was superb. Despite the crush of Valentines Day, our server answered our every need and really made the experience a memorable one."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We shared a caesar salad and lamb shank, both of which were wonderful!!! Love the lemon drop martini Heather makes!!! Judge all lemon drop martinis by hers! It was the first time our friends ate there and they also loved it! This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to when I'm on my way to a performance in the Arts District. It's so convenient and food is consistently yummy!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had the calamari for an app. -it was the freshest I've had since California- seafood pasta for dinner, can't beat the shrimp, they were perfectly cooked and even the spicy Long Island ice tea was better than I expected. Only the first time but from what I had it was delicious and I'll be back for more."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Food looked and tasted mass produced..service was slow ..wouldn't return again as there are so many other fine restaurants in area ..nice atmosphere but that about it ..overpriced for food quality"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Palomino has a consistent level of service and menu selections. Whenever we have an opportunity to meet friends for a casual dinner, we often pick Palomino."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "However food not on par with pricing. You could spend the same and get much tastier food. Ate there twice this week because it was walkable (staying at crescent) and both times appetizer and/or vegetables came out cold. Restaurant was not busy so no excuse for this."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We selected Palomino for their scallops with Asiago cheese dish and because they used the wrong sauce they were a disappointment. The waiter took the dish off of the bill but this was something they should have been able to do correctly the first time."

  • "I've always loved this restaurant, but on this occasion the service was below par."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "If I want to dine someplace special, with relatively good pricing, I always fall back on Palomino. The food is always good, service very accommodating, and the atmosphere is good. The noise level is also a factor. I do not like to go to trendy restaurants with a lot of noise, makes me too nervous to enjoy the food and company. Palomino is not a noisy restaurant like those. And their menu is creative too. This is a very dependable place."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Palomino has been around a while, but it's still hanging in there. We went on a Monday night and it was quite empty. However, the food, the service, and the ambience was fine. Palomino has never disappointed us."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "My wife and have dined at Palominos numerous times and came to expect great food and service. Our favorite has been the Assiago Crusted Scallops. The scallops were great but the accompaniment to the entrée left a lot to be desired. The taste was bland and somewhat unidentifiable. The service seems to have slipped since our last visit and since we had business clients at dinner we were disappointed. Needless to say we will be dining in another restaurant next time."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I go to Palominos frequently when we are going to a performance in the Arts District. It's convenient and has great happy hour items. We actually ordered off the main menu and shared a sirloin steak with pom frites and grilled brussels sprouts. Steak was a little tough but tasty and the pom frites and grilled brussels sprouts were delicious! Our server was very attentive since the restaurant wasn't very busy. We were eating early."
