Palomino - Seattle
Fun Birthday LunchThanks to Lexie for being a great waitress, and for the yummy food and drink, we had a fantastic celelbration. We will be back soon!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not outstandingNo major complaints on dinner, but not memorable either. Used to be better. Beware that parking is not validated in their parking garage run by Republic before 5:00pm. Got stung for a $23 parking bill cause I showed up for cocktails at 4:30pm. Nasty surprise I certainly wasn't expecting because I've been to Palomino around that time of day several other times and never had a problem.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenominal :)Great ambiance, variety, food and service! All around 10!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceI came here with my family to celebrate mother's day and my father's birthday. The servers were extremely friendly and made our experience special! We were given complementary dessert as well as a $50 giftcard for mother's day, for future use at the restaurant. We even had an additional $8 discount on our receipt for dining on Mother's Day. We'll be back for other special occasions!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with out of town friendsThe steak salad is my favorite, and they will make it for dinner also! Another person also ordered the steak salad (loved it) and the third person had the salmon. All raves! Make sure you get the bread with tomato topping. Restaurant was nice and quiet, but it was lunch; has been more energetic for dinner. Great location (guests could walk from their hotel) and I got all-day validated parking (Saturday and Sunday only).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food

best place to go before a show5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemLove the Palomino in downtown Seattle! Second visit after attending play at 5th Avenue Theater. Just steps away and tucked away in a beautiful building. The food was delicious and service was very attentive.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsI hosted another great meal, served efficiently and pleasantly, at Palomino. While my grilled salmon was a bit dry, it was very flavorful. Portions are generous, but not overly so.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceI booked a dinner reservation online for 6:15p but we arrived at 5:45p. The hostess said, "No problem" and seated us with just a wait of a couple of minutes. Our server was efficient and when we asked he made good suggestions for wine. Our meals, asiago-crusted scallops and grilled salmon with scampi were superb. The Chop Chop salad is absolutely the best, in our opinion.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceOur waiter "Ricardo" provided us with outstanding service, this is what will make me come back!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA very fun, upbeat, good foodA very fun, upbeat, good food and great service. We love to go for our annual trip to Seattle for our anniversary4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Seattle FindThe restaurant was very nice, very hip Seattle scene. No complaints about the restaurant. My complaint would be about Open Table and the fact that none of the restaurants that I have booked with them in the last year or so offer any points. I guess I really can't understand what the benefit is for using them? It seems a bit ridiculous to me.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for 5th Avenue pre-theater.Great for 5th Avenue pre-theater. Nice menue and drinks selection. Great food. Very convenient for pre-theater.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding: Mustang of RestaurantsHow the Palamino became so dear to my heart is no secret. Their wait staff are among the nicest people in Seattle. These servers are never rude, and always helpful. This creates a happy dining experience for everyone: from the firm executives to the single mothers. It is my favorite place to eat with family and friends, and is a must when out-of-town guests arrive.
Plus, they make the best Virgin Mojitos, ever.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived 1/2 an hr earlierWe arrived 1/2 an hr earlier than our reservation, yet were seated right away. Service was wonderful. The drinks and food were delicious. We're watching what we eat, so we tend to share a meal and our server split it for us which was very kind. We highly recommend the artichoke dip, served with neat crunchy bread/pita/cracker thing. The chop salad was yummy and the filet mignon with little potatoes and baby artichoke was scrumptious! Oh yes and the Lavender Martini - Delicious!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect spot before the theater.Perfect spot before the theater. Validated parking appreciated!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPalomino, Seattle's "Go To"Palomino is the "go to" place for business lunches. My guest and I were there as a "thank you" to her for some pro bono work she had done for a nonprofit organization. She said she always has pasta there, it is her favorite, and it is always done to perfection. I simply adore the seafood salad - healthy, fresh and even better with some vinaigrette, on the side. The fresh tomato bruschetta is such a treat. Service was attentive but not intrusive.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our lunch. TheWe enjoyed our lunch.

Perfect place for a before-show meal, although getting more expensive.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMi had been to palomino's onlyi had been to palomino's only once before (aside from happy hour), and i remember the experience being elegant, upscale, and enjoyable. this time, it wasn't as elegant and upscale - the food was only okay, especially for the price. i don't mind paying more for food, especially when you expect to when dining at a place like palomino's, but it fell a little short. our waitress was lovely, though.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe food was amazing. The staff was very friendly. Atmosphere was great. Will recommend to friends and family and will definitely be back again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was darling andOur server was darling and knowledgeable - and ooooh, the hazelnut sorbet was delicious too, what a treat!
thank you!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent andService was excellent and entree was quite good. The Cesar salad came with a very strange dressing more like an oil and vinegar than a traditional Cesar dressing. Did not enjoy at all.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm a chicken snob. SeriousI'm a chicken snob. Serious chicken snob. I was blown away at the taste and juiciness of my half chicken... and a size that made finishing it impossible for most mortals. The leftovers would have made uber wonderful chicken salad the next day, but we were off to see Jersey Boys so we left it for the kitchen crew.
The only negative was the broccolini on the plate ... odd tasting and over done.
Service was quick, professional and helpful. Perfect for a pre-concert meal.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the drive into Seattle!Food and service was great. First time eating in the restaurant and really enjoyed it.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood in the CityMy friend and I had an exceptionally wonderful dining experience before going to the opening of Jersey Boys. We were a bit late, but within ten minutes when we stepped off of the elevator. From our first contact with the hosting staff to the last good-bye we were treated with warmth and energy. Our waitstaff had the right amount of gab, knowledge, and attention to be worthy of her four star tip. Well done, Palomino, and we will return!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time, good food.My friends and I went to Palomino for dinner before seeing a musical at the 5th Ave. Theatre. It was a fabulous meal, the service was attentive without being intrusive and we had a very good time. I'd visit the restaurant again!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for lunch.

Wasn't aware it was in a mall until we got there so that was a little surprising. It was very close to 5th Avenue Theatre so it worked out well for us. The service was good and the food was great.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experience overall. StartedGood experience overall. Started in the bar with excellent service, restaurant service was not bad but could have been better. Our server was distracted and appeared to have too many tables to manage at the time we were seated in the restaurant for dinner.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrate!We've visited Palomino a few times before, but I have to say- our experience this time was perfect!
Celebrated my mothers 79th birthday along with out of town family who were equally impressed with not only the ambiance but the food& our server was spot on!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable relaxed environmentComfortable relaxed environment in downtown Seattle with a variety of excellent food offerings. The daily chef specials were both a treat and we were unhurried through our business/social lunch. Great for lunch meetings where conversations need to be heard. Never a disappointment in all the years I ahve been going here.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA welcoming place with great foodThe quality of foods is always predictable, and the service is friendly and fast.
