    Our daughter had a work event across the parking lot so we decided to stop by for dinner afterwards. Our server (Ryanna) was fantastic and everything that followed was equally comparable!! From the drinks, the guacamole and the entrees. I even commented to everyone about how fresh and flavorful everything was. The manager even came over and asked how our experience was and he made a connection with my daughter and offered his business card! We will definitely be coming back!

    The food is always top notch. There was an event at the bar, so it was pretty busy, but even with that there was no disconnect with the level of service, quality of the food or timelines. Love this place!

    Sadly The kitchen is ruining the restaurant. Used to be that the food you ordered came out fresh, cooked perfectly and the chefs knew what Latin food was. Now, I don’t know who is in charge of the kitchen or who the chefs are, but they are definitely not good, nor do they know Latin food! The waiter was excellent and wrote the order correctly, We changed the sides to plantains and yuca fries. The plantains and yuca fries were old, hard and inedible! Any person familiar with what yuca and plantains look like would not have sent that to the table… it was horrible, and its really sad because it was 1/2 Latin restaurants near our house. The manager came and apologized, and was very nice. However, Paladar needs to hire chefs who know Latin food, how to follow directions, and know what they are doing. I certainly hope they can make Paladar what it once was, or I think it may end up closing… many of my friends today said the same thing about the food!

    My family was celebrating a birthday. The weather was bad yesterday, unexpected snow, so we were all late. Waiter was fantastic. He had table all set up including a high chair. He told us to take our times, friendly, very helpful as my son has severe gluten allergy. He explained everything. Went into the kitchen and made sure everything my son ordered would be perfect. My grandson spilled his water on floor and waiter was great about it. Food came out and was excellent. I also liked that we could party bill electronically. Definitely will be back

    Felt like the waitstaff had not waited tables before - slow to bring food out, never picked up any dirty dishes or glasses, took so long to bring out salad dressing that I was done eating. Food was good, but not memorable. Not sure I’d come back based on the price for the experience.

    We've eaten at Paladar quite a few times, but this was the first time neither I or my husband enjoyed the food or the experience. I'm sure it makes sense for the sake of the servers, but being pushed into a space between two full tables was uncomfortable. We sat for a bit before we were even acknowledged, then the server took our order, assuming we would want to order dinner straight away. I'm not sure if that was based on how long we had been waiting or the new way they take orders, but it felt rushed and unwelcome. The food was only okay; nothing to write home about. Two things about the evening stand out most: first, when two tables near us cleared out, the server began vacuuming the area, while many of us were still eating; it killed the vibe and kicked up dust. Second, when it was time to pay, my husband was given the device the server used to take our orders, to swipe his card. The server stood at the table as he calculated the tip and completed the transaction. It was rude, slightly suffocating, and uncomfortable. I guess this is the new way to do things, but I would suggest servers leave the table while the bill is being paid; it's not like customers are going to run off with your device. And, the server never brought our receipt. All in all it was only okay (I appreciate that I was able to omit tortilla chips from my salsa), but I don't think we'll be back for a while. As for recommending Paladar to a friend, I would say "maybe" but this doesn't allow for that answer. Also, I noted in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and that wasn't acknowledged.

    Paladar was just the place we needed on a cold night. The drinks were generous, the food was spiced nicely and the mood was bustling. i started out with the black bean soup that i really enjoyed along with plantain and yucca chips. We shared the pork stew, the beef ropa viega that were very tasty. A gentleman with us had a rum based cocktail called "Stormy Night" that he approved of. This is a fun place to eat and it won't break the bank.

    Great delicious food that is healthy! Paladar continues to turn veggies like brussel sprouts, kale, and peppers into food that you crave. This is a go to place that we hit up for our business meetings.
