The food and ambiance were very good but the service was just fair. We were asked if we wanted some water up front - who doesn't when eating out? The water was so bad we had to buy a bottle of water to drink. Although the waiter said he'd be right with us to place our order he seemed to have gotten lost for awhile after taking our appetizer requests. I asked for a Chivas and water in a tall glass and got a Chivas on the rocks in a small glass. I decided to mix it with my drinking water before I had tasted the water - that was a mistake. When I wanted a second drink to go with my dinner I had to find a different server to place the order because ours wasn't anywhere around. I enjoyed the ambiance and the view of Fountain Square but I won't be going back. As is customary for me, I still lift the server slightly over a 20% tip.

The greater the cost the greater the service expected. This was not the case this time. It was not bad service just very little and not timely. Two of the dishes ordered came missing ingredients listed on the menu. The experience was “fine”

The meal was excellent..I had the tomahawk pork chop, my friend had the scallops. Service was also excellent. Levi, our waiter was very attentive. Great spot for pre-theatre dining.

Palomino is a fantastic find. The ambiance is perfectly romantic, and classy. The food was the best food I've had in Cincinnati and I will definitely be returning.

Salad was not good. Shrimp and quinoa. Wilted lettuce. Some shrimp had tails on. Some didn’t.

Sorry to say, it was a miserable experience. I regret my choice of restaurants for a birthday dinner. We absolutely froze while attempting to dine. The restaurant was so cold that I was ordering "hot water". The first field green salad that was served contained slimy and old lettuce. The caeser salad that replaced it was slightly fresher. There was no acknowledgement of the birthday....why ask this of folks making reservations if there is nothing done to acknowledge the special occasion? It was an experience that was unforgettable and will not be repeated. Thanks for asking. It gave me an opportunity to let you know how embarrassed I was with my choice of restaurants that evening.

We come here every year for New Years Eve and it’s always a good experience. The service is good, it feels comfy, the wine selection is good, and the brushetta is very good. It has a great view of Fountain Square.
