I really think the Rum is the attraction at this place, don't get your expectations too high for the food that is served.
I love this place. The food never lets me down, it’s a fun atmosphere for brunch with friends or a fun date with your SO. They have outdoor seating to accommodate for the COVID aware and heaters to make you feel more comfortable as the weather gets chilly.
Good socially distant setup. Plenty of outdoor tables.
The service is terrible. Sat for nearly 20 minutes until a waiter came to the table. The restaurant was not busy at all so there was no reason for it. It should take 15 minutes for them to bring the check once its requested.
We chose this restaurant because of its service , food and atmosphere. We arrived and the hostess greeted us well. However, upon seating she placed us by the door. We asked if we could sit at another table because the people
In the party we’re very tall and sitting right at the door would be an issue. The young woman snapped at us staring it will be 10 minutes and walked away. For over 20 minutes we were left standing on the patio and the person NEVER came back to tell us what’s going on. My sadness because I’ve loved this place. Me and my friends spend a lot of money here and we often recommend this place. The food outstanding. Eventually the waiter took care of us. But a nite the white folks recieved their food before us and came in 1 hour after us. We had to ask for everything. 😢
The online menu and the menu in the restaurant were quite different. We ended up leaving the restaurant without having any food as the dinner menu didn’t have the items that we liked on the online menu
Delightful ambiance, delicious food, and wonderful service! Highly recommend!
It took a really long time for a server to come out to us. It seemed like there may have been confusion on which server was to be waiting on our table. Otherwise everything was great.
Went with my family to celebrate my adults son work promotion for Sunday brunch. The food was very generous and very good. Ate indoors and social distancing was great. We sat in a large booth with really no one sitting near us. Our waitress was excellent and on top of things. Would definitely recommend to others.
It was an average fair place, nothing spectacular. The food was good, service wasn't, because we were eating and not wearing their mask we kept telling the staff to cover their face.
Overall we continue to be very happy dining at Paladar and the food is delicious!
Service was efficient and friendly, and the food is very good. The homemade quacamole is excellent, calamari appetizer very good, and the Cuban sandwich very genuine and delicious! Very nice dining experience.
Ordered margaritas with ceviche, drinks were decent, but the price for the amount of ceviche we received was not worth the price. Very little amount of shrimp (possibly only 6 or 7). If the quality of the shrimp and flavor was boasting, I could have looked past it, but unfortunately it was not there either. In fairness to them regarding my rating to their food, we only had the ceviche so it’s possible other dishes are better! My wife raves about their brunch menu
We sat on the back patio which is quiet and lovely with plants and flowers. Nathan, our server was excellent and very polite. We enjoyed red sangria, guac and chips, fish tacos and ropa viejo braised beef. Paladar is one if out go to restaurants.
Brunch outside, everything was perfect!
We had a very nice dinner outside. Our server was very nice and attentive. I recommend.
Truly a great outing with the ladies! Melinda, our servicer, provided excellent service and highly knowledgeable with recommendations. Thank you all for the experience.
Good fresh food, delivered professionally by proactive staff!
We had not been to Paladar since before COVID-19 restrictions. The food was wonderful, though some items were not available. The service was friendly and timely. I felt very comfortable with the health and safety precautions.
Our second time to this restaurant proved worthy for excellent food and drinks on a Saturday afternoon! Our friends were quite impressed with their meals as well. The brunch menu doesn’t show up using the QR code on the table so we requested a paper menu to see those items. The cheese bread app is out of this world!!! All in all, probably one of the better restaurants in Crown and we’ll definitely return. The reason for 4 stars is the strawberry caipirinha arrived to the table with no sugar-oops...just way too tart, but they fixed it and brought a replacement. The back patio seems to be a nicer area than the front sidewalk for outdoor seating. Employees are quite nice here too!
We went for brunch. I really enjoyed my palador brunch and loved the yucca cakes. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and he thought it was bland.
There for a birthday. Great food A little disappointed in them bring a flan for the birthday and charging me for it.
Is that a thing now?
Great food and quick service, the lighting from the nearby bar made for an aesthetic background to our dining. They even brought out a beautiful flan cake for my birthday.
Nice overall experience for Sunday brunch
Excellent Caribbean comfort food served in a very authentic style.
our biggest issue was the fact that the bartender did not seem to understand how to make drinks. It took about 15-20 minutes to get 3 drinks made. there was only 2 tables in the whole building for lunch including us. I could see the bartender with his phone out scrolling through it. either on social media or looking up the recipe. I noticed him very confused as the waiter was waiting for him to hurry up. Then it looked like he reached for a recipe card hanging on the wall and had to follow that. The drinks turned out... eh.
Also, the calamari was very over cooked and dry. if i had to do it all again, i would have chose a different restaurant.
I found my new favorite place to go. Everything was excellent!
Fantastic meal! Service was perfect, the waiter knew exactly when to check on is. The outdoor seating is fantastic. The food quality has remained the same! Will definetly be coming back.
Very nice outdoor patio seating. Food & drinks were great. Will come back!
The server was great
Food was good but not exceptional. Would recommend the restaurant since it had more of an eclectic selection than I have seen before--and the margaritas were very good.
Great Latin Rum Bar in such a cool area
Great food and service. Price is decent, but I think it is worth it. Great selection of alcohol to match food
I met a friend for lunch. We hadn’t been there for awhile. The food and service were very good. We both had the taco lunch with 2 different tacos and a side for $10. It was a great value and the tacos were interesting and delicious. The black bean soup was terrific! Definitely will return for lunch again!
Paladar works best when you are in a festive mood and plan on having a few drinks at dinner. The food is good if a little uneven; often great ideas are marred by execution.
Noise level was unbearable. Next time will ask for carpeted dining room instead of bar area.
Interesting assortment of tasty LatAm cuisines (of which I'd like to see more of!) as well as some standard fare. Service was first rate as were the rum drinks!
Excellent food and great service.
This was my first time here and I really liked it. Everything tasted awesome and the staff was kind.
Good food, service was poor. Their waiters and waitress are usually very good, the one we had this evening was marginal at best. She was slow in serving us and not accessible. Not to mention she had an “attitude”.
