Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good. Waiter seemed bored. The decor could use something. Has gotten drab and uninspired in past years All else was great"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We had wonderful food and our server Jordan was excellent."

  • "Palomino used to be one of the best restaurants in Indianapolis, but on my recent visit, I found it has faded a bit. While this restaurant used to be packed at lunch and dinner, it was barely a third full on a Thursday lunch hour, and while our server was trying, our food arrived from the kitchen long after we placed our order (which should have been quite simple to deliver). There's far more competition in the city now, and perhaps this restaurant needs to do some things to remain competitive. It's a beautiful spot but fading in its appeal."

  • "We've been eating at this Palomino since it opened. The food was consistently good, the service great, and the ambience just right. Lately the service seems to be slipping because there are fewer servers and bussers and everything takes longer to get. You used to sit down and a busier had their signature bread and olive tomato spread on the table before you knew it. Now the servers have to bring it after they've taken all their orders - when they get to it. The menus look old and worn like the restaurant can't afford new ones. This store has always depended on visitors and convention traffic but lots of locals, like us, used to eat there regularly. Now, unless there a basketball or football game, you don't see many locals. Sad."

  • "Waiter left. Knew we were waiting for people, but didn't ask if we wanted to order drinks before he left the table. Had to ask to move tables due to the glare off the cars going by the window. Waiters service improved once everyone was seated."

  • "Food was excellent, mostly quiet and wasn't busy for a Monday night at all. Can get a little pricey, but again the food was worth it."

  • "Do NOT go here if you are in a rush or want some cheap food. DO go here if you want a nice atmosphere with amazing food that is great for a romantic date. The food is amazing. I have had the mushroom soup(very good), the prime rib(which is the best prime rib I have ever had! And that is saying something), the tiramisu(fantastic desert!), the seasoned potatoes(mediocre side item), asparagus(mediocre side item), pork loin(awesome flavor). The service was slow both times I have been here. I was there on a Tuesday (7/1/2014), I got there at 7:05 PM. The server got to our table after waiting for about 5-7 minutes. The drinks took about 10 minutes to arrive. The food took about 40 minutes to arrive. Desert took about 15 minutes to come out."

  • "I had been there with a large group in January and loved it, but we were so disappointed this time around. The prime rib was so over done it was shocking, the calamari was Red Lobster-esque, but the bruschetta and Copper River salmon were really nice. Service was slow - both our appetizer and main course sat in front of us empty for some time."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food and service was great. The selection of appetizers and main courses were very good. The portions of the appetizers were great for sharing among four people. The calamari was excellent. The crab an artichoke dip was good, but not outstanding. The prime rib was the best part of the evening. It was cooked exactly the way we wanted it. The smoky flavor was also unique and delicious. The weakest part of the meal was the Bloody Mary made with jalapeno infused vodka and the rather bland Bloody Mary mix. There was no kick at all. That should not stop anyone from eating here. It was an excellent dining experience."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We found our dinner for four excellent except for the darkness which required us to use a flashlight to read the menu and wine list plus the fact that our entrees arrived while we were still in the midst of our soup and salads."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "lovely dinner, the lamb was amazing! the pasta dish with tomatoes and basil was very basic, but good. overall, i would come again."

  • "My Husband and I was celebrating our 27th Wedding Anniversary. The atomsphere was great along with the food and service. We had a great evening."

  • "My date and I visited on a Saturday at noon in downtown Indianapolis. When we arrived, we quickly noticed that we were the ONLY guests at the restaurant. (A few more trickled in during our meal.) After dining, we realized why. The food and service were not terrible, but honestly, for the quality that we received, we VASTLY overpaid for our meal. Yes, we checked the website menu in advance for pricing and still decided to go there, thinking the meal would match the price. Yet, it did not. The sandwiches were comparable to Penn Station, Jimmy John's, or Subway, and the fries were similar to Steak and Shake (but with some parsley added). Unfortunately, we paid at least double than what we would have paid at a fast food place."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Very good meal and attentive service. Only complaint was our table location because we were given a small booth table ( no legroom whatsoever) at the rear of the dining area. We felt isolated and asked for another table. We were politely and quickly given another table but it was right next to the kitchen entrance. We should've asked to move again, but didn't. There were plenty of other tables in a more vibrant section."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The service was great, the food was overcooked. Our salmon was well done, we ordered it medium rare. That vegetables were salted to heavily. French press coffee was excellent."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Went for dinner early around 5 PM. Very few people in the restaurant however we had to wait about 5 minutes to have a table "cleaned". Service was average, food quality good. Overall I'd say it was an average experience. I had expected something unique."

  • "Was disappointed with facility for 47 anniversary dinner. Table of 8 felt like they were on top of us. Food was great and always like the tea."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "I travel to Indianapolis quite often and never miss a visit to Palomino. This time I had the special, which was Copper River Salmon. It was incredible. Will be back again in a few weeks."

  • "We celebrated graduation day with lunch at Palomino. The food was great and our server, Leah, met all our needs. Very friendly staff."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had the crusted tilapia and it was very greasy. Our son had the panini and it was not to his liking. He's 18 and will eat almost anything. The crackers that went with artichoke dip was bathed in butter. Overall not happy. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We have a small women's group that meets for lunch twice a year. For the past 3-4 years, Palomino has been our choice. Everything about the experience is lovely, especially the lunch combo specials."

  • "My adult son has chosen Palomino's to celebrate his birthday for the past several years. While pricey, the food is excellent with numerous dishes to choose from. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, helping us finalize our selections. And as before, the food did not disappoint any of us (and there were three). It was a relaxed atmosphere and we all enjoyed our evening together"

  • "Great service, wonderful food, exceptional martinis! What more needs to be said?"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This restaurant catered to my needs. My girlfriend is severely allergic to both gluten and dairy products. Palomino worked around that and made sure that her food was safe to eat. The server forgot my steak knife and glass of wine, but it was quickly fixed and to make up for it we each got a complimentary dessert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends. "

  • "Our server, Iris was wonderful, very engaging, well versed with regard to all entrees, wines, etc. She attended to our group of seven extremely well despite working with another, larger group on a busy Friday evening. The restaurant was out of stock on at least two wine items commonly offered, this seemed unusual for a Friday night. Appetizers and salads were excellent but the steak was less than top notch. The desert donuts are killer as is the bread pudding. Iris made our evening."

  • "The server was exceptional. We had a fairly early seating and he asked up front if we were going to a show. He made sure that the courses came out at the right time so that we could leave for the show on time. The scallops were amazing. "

  • "n arrival I was seated in the bar area at my request I was able to watch the Indiana Pacers playoff game while dining on a delicious appetizer of flatbread ,garlic cloves, blue cheese and goat cheese with a tomato chutney.my main course it was decided after discussion with the waitress to be chicken parmesan with angel hair pasta in a tomato sauce which was equally tasty I had a delightful bottle of wine Oregon to accompany my meal the waitresses very attentive and keeping my glass bowl and asking if I needed any other help"

  • "We have spent the last eight years at Palomino Mother's Day brunch and have never left disappointed. This year one of our party had food a bit overcooked, but our server, Jay, made sure that an apology was sent and a free dessert was given to us as compensation, even though we were not upset. We definitely will continue our Mother's Day tradition at Palomino. "
