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.

Great dining experience and service. I was really impressed with the selection of items on the menu. The server took the time to explain many of their entree's and made some recommendations. The homemade guacamole was outstanding, I had the mixed grill - large portion, very filling and delicious. Others at our table had the pulled pork which had rave reviews as well. Great experience, highly recommend.

With the pandemic keeping restaurants shut down for so long, when Paladar's outside patio opened, it was time to get my Feijoada fix. The meal was delicious, as usual. A couple of Caipirinhas didn't hurt matters any ... All in all, an enjoyable experience and one I hope doesn't require a long break before going back again.

We waited for 10-15 minutes after being seated for our waitress to come and take our drink order. There were no guests yet at the restaurant. She finally came to our table still tying her apron because she was obviously late.
I was willing to forgive everything, late service, waiting a very long time for our food to be ready, but the real problem was when I ordered a cup of tea after we finished our meal. I took a sip of my tea and then saw a lipstick stain on the cup. I was not wearing lipstick.
The waitress came and brought the check. I showed her the dirty cup. She just stood there and I told her I wanted to speak to the manager. He finally came over.
I told him and showed him and he asked what I wanted him to do about it. I was incredulous. This is right at the time when our governor closed all the schools due to COVID 19! I told him that I was grossed out and how could I even trust that the silverware I had been using was clean.
The he asked me if I would like him to personally make a cup of tea to go! Again, I said that I didn’t know if I could trust the restaurant and declined his offer of a free cup of tea. I gave him my credit card and also had a $10 gift card. He did come back with a very discounted bill.
I felt that was the right thing to do and left a tip for the waitress that was the amount of our original bill.

I ordered the chicken tortilla soup and Braised Beef Ropa Vieja. The soup was very good but there was not much chicken in it. The shredded beef was tender, tasted great and was topped with a delicious sauce. My wife ordered a spinach salad with grilled salmon and a side of plantains. The plantains were very good and the salad crisp and fresh. She felt the salmon was among the worst she has tasted in a restaurant. It was very dry, overcooked and hard to eat. The service and atmosphere was excellent.
