    Have always loved Palomino, unfortunately they are closing the Dallas location effective March 8. We thought we would have one last meal there, 2 days before they closed. The food we had was good, but two menu items that we wanted were not available. Understandable that they did not want a large inventory of perishable items since they were closing for good in two more days! Always loved the atmosphere and service. Restaurant was very empty on a Monday night. We will miss Palomino!

    The food is always fresh and delicious. We love the pretty way it's decorated and is a happy, inviting place to be. Our servers are happy and friendly and make us feel very welcome. It's just a nice place to visit. We live in Mckinney so it's quite a trip to drive to, so of course wish it was closer to us. We'd be more regular patrons if it wasn't so far away. We are very sorry to hear they're closing in a few days.

    The pasta was the best I've had since leaving St. Louis more than 40 years ago. Creative and broad menu with very good specials that evening. Overall, a very nice experience and we were surprised the restaurant was not much busier on a Saturday night. Not inexpensive but fresh food, especially seafood, should't be inexpensive and the fish WAS fresh!

    Shocked to find out after we got to the restaurant that they were closing in a week since I was not informed when I made reservation. They did not have most of the items on the menu in preparation for the close. Very disappointing to have friends from out of town and not much selection to eat. If it had not been a Friday night we would have left and tried somewhere else.

    I am so disappointed in Palamino. We have eaten there before and were looking forward to our meal but were very much disappointed. Our waiter was rushed throughout the evening, indicating he needed us to wait before he took our order, although it appeared to us he had only four tables. Our bruschetta was burnt to black. I believe in giving restaurants a chance to fix food but there is no excuse for serving food that is so visibly ruined. If they couldn't figure that out on their own, my input wasn't going to help. The crab dip was bland. I will give high marks to the mushroom soup, it really was very good. The flavor of the truffles fries was fantastic but they arrived at the table cold. I won't belabor every point but I would recommend you go elsewhere for dinner.

    I've been to the Dallas Palomino before and left delighted. And I've been to the Palomino in Indianapolis several times and ALWAYS left delighted. But I took my wife to Palomino in Dallas for Valentine's and left disappointed. Here's why... The brussels sprouts were overcooked. Soft instead of a bit crunchy. A week ago I ordered this in Indianapolis (this is a favorite dish of mine) and it was delicious and perfect. The prosecco by the glass was mediocre. I then tried a different glass of brut and it was also mediocre. The crab cakes were too fishy. I ordered the Osso Bucco -- a special for Valentines Day -- it was tasty, but very small. I expected a bigger piece with a substantial and obvious bone in the middle. That's how Osso Bucco has always been served to me in the past. The asparagus was perfect and delicious. The dessert -- chocolate cake and ice cream -- was ordinary. The service was loud and rushed. Plus they accidentally delivered something to us that we didn't order. I expected my server to be soft spoken, and unhurried. I used my Restaurants Unlimited points, so it cost me nothing but the tip, and I still left disappointed. I hope they pick up their game. I loved this place, and the one in Indianapolis is great, so I know they can do much better.

    A group of nine women gathered together to have a wonderful time, which started out okay, and our wiater, Jimmy was nice enough. My one friend and I split a pasta dish, because we were too full from appetizers, and we both were charged the full amount, even after questioning it. But then there was confusion about a coupon one of the girls had for the 1st 6 of us, and they simply couldn't get it together, and it took them at least 40 minutes or so to sort it out, while we were falling asleep (on a Saturday night, getting ready to go party elsewhere) because we couldn't get more drinks, since they were closed. We were the only ones inside, after eating in a very empty restaurant, and receiving very slow service overall. Very disappointed. To top it off, I accidentally added an additional tip because I forgot they already added a gratuity, which I certainly would NOT have given, being overcharged for my dinner like that, and kept waiting forever. Won't be going again. Funny thing, when reserving, it stated there were very few tables, and when I called about our large group, they said they would accomodate us, even though they had some other large groups coming. Not true! Very few people the entire 3-3.5 hours we were there, but plenty of staff.

    Mediocre food with a nice presentation but not worth the price. The crab cakes, steak salad and braised short rib with risotto were okay, nothing special. The desserts were the worst, the alcohol in the tiramisu was over powering and the chocolate cake was dense and cold. Overall, nothing to write home about, would not visit again. Spend your money elsewhere.

    This venue has been a Dallas staple since the late 80's. The food, particularly the salmon special on the lunch menu, is to die for. The staff is always attentive and more than willing to make substitutions or alterations to menu items with no fuss! We will go back!

    My boyfriend and I went to Palomino for New Year's Eve dinner and we left far from disappointed! The honey peppercorn salmon was outstanding, as well as the four cheese penne with grilled chicken. The restaurant wasn't too noisy at all so we could easily enjoy casual conversation over some delicious cocktails. Our waiter could not have been any more accommodating and helpful in recommending specific dishes and appetizers. Thanks for making our NYE dinner successful!

    Celebrated a special '30th' birthday with a large party. Parking was perfect, complimentary valet. Reservation - perfect. Mentioned a birthday celebration when making the reservation and our table had small birthday celebration decorations on it. Nice touch! Waiter- rate him as a 10, we were well taken care of. Appetizers-calamari and crab cakes were fresh and not over cooked or rubbery. Recommend the pear martini, although everyone would say their selection was the best! Scallops were unbelievably fresh and again, cooked perfectly. As there was a wide variety of dinner selections at our table, from pizza to shrimp, or pork loin, everything was amazing and everyone was impressed. Will definitely return, could not suggest one thing to change about our night!

    For a weekday night and not very busy - they were out of the steak we both wanted and the service was rather slow. Had a promo sent to me by Restaurants Unlimited Inc. and the manager couldn't apply it to our ticket properly. Said she would comp our dessert and then gave us $6 when the dessert was almost $10. Oh well...

    We love eating at Palomino's and have on many occasions, especially when we have tickets for the Dallas Symphony. It's easy access with complimentary parking and a quick trip to the Myerson. When we're in a hurry, we eat in the bar or outdoors and order from the happy hour menu which is superb!! For special occasions we eat indoors in the lovely, romantic atmosphere and enjoy wonderful meals from the main menu. Thanks for another great evening!! The service was superb too!!

    A regular for us. Dependably good food and service. People do not seem to go to the Crescent much anymore so this restaurant may not get the evening traffic it could but lunch times are pretty vibrant with the business crowd. One can find healthy options here. One can eat outside, two options there Valet or free (with validation by restaurant )self parking

    I was a bit disappointed. My previous experiences were so much better. Though we were seated immediately it appeared no one was assigned to our table. After waiting 10 min my companion walked over to the bar to order our drinks. Once he returned, a mysterious man in a vest asked if we had been helped and got our water and appetizer order. After he left, our actual server made an appearance after waiting almost 20min. The evening went on like the this. Mystery man, who we found out later was the manager, took care of us as our server was busy with 2 larger parties. Again I was disappointed at the poor level of service more so because the restaurant wasn't that busy. Many tables were empty but they may have been short staffed that night.
