    We enjoyed our two visits to Paladar. Very tasty choices with a different twist. Service was good and people friendly. A bit noisy as there was a large party of 18 in our vicinity. Reasonable pricing was also a plus.. You won’t be sorry giving them a try.

    The food was amazing, as always. Service was mediocre. I tipped 20% anyways. When I got home, I looked at my account and noticed an additional $14 was charged to my card. I spoke to the manager, nice lady, and was basically told to wait to see if it hard posts to my account. I’m not too happy about it but there’s not much I can do. If I do patronize this establishment again, I’ll stick to the bar and carry cash.

    Service and the atmosphere have changed over the years, but not for the better. To cap it off, of the four table settings at our table, only one was clean. Each of the others had one or more dirty plates or silverware. Toward the end of the evening we noticed they rolled up the entry runner and put it right on the bench where customers sit while waiting for a table. I don’t imagine the health department would be very impressed by all the dirt and bacteria likely all over the bench. The dirty runner was there was at least 30 minutes while we were there and likely stayed there. The whole cleanliness issue is embarrassing as we had taken two friends out for their first time to Paladar. I assume it will be their last time too.

    The restaurant was very quiet and there were a lot of tables which was nice but service was slow, there was one other table in our area with two customers. Food was fair, we all ordered the bowls and were disappointed that they were not served hot, barely warm, but we’re so hungry waiting for our food that we didn’t send back. We were there about a month ago and the service and food was much better - very disappointing. Not sure we would come back.

    My dining experience was less than desired. My date and I were sat at a table that was visibly dirty and instead of the hostess being proactive and cleaning it, I had to request that it be cleaned. My server did not act as if she wanted to serve us, her personality was not friendly which was disappointing as we watched the other servers around engage with their tables and create an atmosphere of fun and levity. The food was so-so, I had the hanger steak and it was beyond tough. My date was more pleased with the pork Cuban dish. Overall I was disappointed as I was initially super excited to dine there. Not sure that I will again.

    I have been coming to this location since it opened. It’s always been amazing. First time, I wasn’t feeling it. Staff seemed a little stretched and I am sorry. Close tables if you don’t have enough servers vs wearing them down. Appetizers tasted day old. So I don’t know. It was a bad night but I will return. Take care of your servers.

    This reservation didn’t mean anything because the outdoor seating option is not real, just a request. No one in our party was comfortable sitting inside yet due to covid so we still had to wait 45 min for our table since they said we would have to have the full wait for an outside table. I used to come here all the time and it was so disappointing. They also didn’t have the staff that they needed to function smoothly and they ran out of the food that I wanted only 5 minutes before I sat down. which, If they’d taken my reservation, wouldn’t have been a problem.

    We went there to celebrate Mother's day a little early. It being a Saturday night, we expected it to be a bit crowded and a little louder. It did take a little while to get our first round of drinks, but after that it was a great evening. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees to the desserts were fantastic. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is a fan of great Latin food and fantastic rum drinks.

    While our food was good, some areas for improvement: -don’t recommend a high top for kids. We were fine with it because the hostess told us they had a high chair or booster. A young girl brought the high chair over… it was a low one. Our son would have been under the table so I naturally declined. The manager then came over to see why we declined it and tried to spin it like I was being unreasonable for not wanting a low high chair…. I then asked for a booster. She said it would not secure to the chair so I said never mind since this wouldn’t be safe at this height. She again seemed boggled as to why their options wouldn’t work for a high top table. Next time I won’t let them pursuade me to sit there. Clearly the standard height table was better suited for us. -I was the only one not given water at our table of 6. I asked repeatedly for a glass before getting it as he dropped off the check at the end of the meal. Not their best service but we like the food so we’ll likely return.

    Paladar has been one of my favorite restaurants in the Cleveland are for years! The food is delicious! It's so original and yet familiar for someone who, like me, comes from Latin America. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, but somewhat elegant at the same time. All this makes Paladar the ideal restaurant to celebrate a special occasion!

    The black beans were very bland and lacked flavor. The Carnitas tacos were tasty. Service was excellent. The guacamole with blue cheese and bacon was very good. I classify this restaurant above average but not five stars by any means.

    My friends and I did not have a good experience. Our server never returned to the table to see if we wanted more drinks and she never refilled our waters. My friend's dinner didn't come out. After 15-20 minutes a manager brought it out. He was nice and got her another glass of wine. Server never came and checked on us. My fish tacos were ok at best. The beans and rice had no flavor. The late entree had salmon on it and it was really overcooked. The server finally came around and did have it taken off the bill. I would not go back.

    For $11.50 a Pusser's painkiller should have a perceivable amount of alcohol. I have had these at the bar that invented them in the Bahamas. I paid $11.50 for pineapple juice. Food is good, nothing special. I have ne reason to return.

    First time back since pandemic. Waitress was very good and pleasant. Waited 25 minutes for a margarita which tasted like lemonade, no salt. Obviously the bartender did not know how to make it. Waitress said bartender was also a server with his own tables. Shrimp and grits was excellent, black bean soup just okay and the empanadas left a lot to be desired. Needed salt and spices. The guac was wonderful as usual. Making me rethink going there again any time soon.
