Wonderful meal and excellent, knowledgeable servers. The scallops, red trout and crab stuffed sole were delightful and accompanying risotto superb—the best I’ve ever tasted!!!

The only negative comment I would make, is the hostess was less than friendly and a bit snippy when we asked to be seated at a booth. (The dining room was empty and the tables and booths were all set up for incoming patrons—they began seating at 5 and we arrived at 10 til 5).

The hostess made us wait, seated a couple who walked in at 5 and had 5:15 reservations, and then asked us again what our reservation name was under—using a very haughty tone!! Set a bad start for our fun IRT evening!!!

Will say though that the serving staff’s cheerful helpfulness made up for her attitude. They asked if we were under time constraints and made sure we were out of the restaurant in perfect time for the play!!! Will go back!!

Palomino's rarely disappoints, but Saturday's experience was the best ever. The food was great and the service was exceptional. I enjoyed the asiago scallops with risotto (fantastic) but the highlight was the flatbread appetizer with numerous toppings, including warm roasted garlic cloves. Can't wait to go back.

We went for my mother’s birthday. She the food was bomb, just awesome and very much worth the price. We felt very special and received a very pleasant, enthusiastic waiter. The entire kitchen staff helped bring plates out and I couldn’t even finish my food. I’m home now eating the rest. ☺️

The restaurant wasn't very busy so it was like having a private room.
The food was delicious. The server recommended I get the 3 entrees for $19 instead of paying for the salad on a ala carte menu. It was a good deal!

The brunch buffet was all they had available and we were not told that until we were seated. The brunch buffet was also a little overpriced and the food wasn't very good either.
The bacon had a weird taste, the eggs benedict was so bad that I only ate one of the two I got. The muffin was hard and the egg was seasoned too much.
In the past Palomino had always been good, this time I just felt they fell short.

The restaurant is very beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing and Kurtis was a great server. I was amazed how reasonable the check was considering we had a couple of glasses of wine each. The Portabello Mushroom was a great starter. We will definitely be going back. A true Indy gem.

Food was great as always. Service incredibly poor throughout. Spending $270+ for 4 people, one would expect at least a marginal level of service. We have been there countless times over the years. I doubt we will be back if this lack of service is now typical. Very disappointing.

I first dined at Palomino a dozen years ago and enjoyed it then so much that I made mental note to return if my travels took me to Indy. This summer we took a short family vacation, so I made a Saturday afternoon lunch reservation. My wife, stepson, and I all have slightly different tastes, and our friendly and knowledgeable waiter guided us through the varied and tempting menu. We ate well, and my family was able to see why I found Palomino memorable.
