Paladar always delivers consistent quality service and food! The Latin flavors are so good and something you cannot get anywhere else. Food is colorful and flavorful. The bar is stocked with what seems like 100 different rums! A 10!

We sat on the patio for awhile and were ignored so we went inside. Our server was young and awkward but what I thought was terrible was how the manager followed up behind him to ask if he took our order. The food was mediocre.

The only thing as good as their food is their service. I totally messed up my friend's order, it was completely my fault. Our server was gracious and not only brought her the correct order but didn't make me pay for the order I messed up. The Cubanos are excellent along with everything else on the menu.

The cranberry-ginger mojito was delicious and they were generous with the rum! Im looking forward to returning in the very near future!! Oh and do yourself a favor and try the grilled pineapple salsa!! It is amazing and with the plantains as the scooper, your tastebuds will be delighted!!

For our entrees we had the Pineapple Glazed Chicken. It had beans, rice, veggies, and 2 chicken breasts. We also had the Latin Stew, it had kale, beans, chorizo, sausage, veggies, and it had a little kick to it and was great tasting as well. We also had the bread pudding for dessert. It had just the right amount of caramel, nuts, & bread. Our server was very helpful and courteous. She had great suggestions for our meal and drink choices. I will definitely be back soon.

We finally stopped in for a meal, specifically looking for a place with outdoor dining. This fit the bill perfectly! The Mojo-marinated Sockeye Salmon was fantastic - wonderful flavors and sauce, but the Rum-glazed Cuban Pork was rather bland - I guess that's why it's in the comfort food section. The craft-your-own guacamole was very good and the chips of plantain, malanga and tortilla were a special treat. We'll come back again and try something more exciting than the pork.
