This was not my first experience at the Palomino in downtown Indianapolis, nor will it be my last. We had requested to be out in a timely fashion in order to make an IRT curtain, and while this request was honored we never felt rushed.

The service was superb, the food stellar, the ambiance soothing yet not soporific. Always a hit!

Food is very good and creative. When it is crowded service gets slow but the wait staff and hostesses realize that and help each other out . The doughnuts for dessert are consistently heavenly.

Pleasant lunch for two. The noise level was low and a great atmosphere to have good business lunch. Deliciously rich Cream of Mushroom soup was a very good starter followed by a delicious grilled maple syrup marinated chicken breast served over a fresh green salad. Very nice menu.

The meal was a lovely experience. We had a very attentive waiter and made good suggestions for wine choices. The filet was quite tender and was topped with crispy onion rings. The brussel sprouts were prepared deliciously. I ordered the chicken marsala which I had not had before. It was good but I don't think I would order it again. We began with a bruschetta appetizer which was wonderful!

We always enjoy the food at Palomino. It isn’t authentic Italian, but is still very good. The crispy caprese, Sicilian meatballs, and baked four cheese rotini with chicken are always excellent. They have some good pizzas and steaks as well. Steak is almost always undercooked, but is always corrected when we send it back. Service can sometimes be hit or miss, but our server was very good this visit. Ambiance/decor could use some work.

On my reservation we asked for a table in the center of the restaurant. When we arrived on time we had to wait for 15 minutes and then we were seated at a table in the very back of the restaurant in a corner. Food was fine but coffee was cold. I was disappointed for a meal we paid over $200.00. I won't go again except for a small snack at the bar. I have gone to their happy hour several times which is always great!

Love this place! GREAT experience. Our waitress was fabulous and very knowledgeable. She was so upbeat and made our experience very positive! The prime rib and fettuccini/Marsala pasta dish were phenomenal. We had gluten free donuts for dessert, which were exceptional! We will definitely be back!

Arrived at 6:15,which we thought was plenty of time to catch an 8:00 show. The service was slow and our food did not arrive until 7:30 which required us to eat in about 10 minutes. We had two couples so two bills which were calculated incorrectly but did not have time to correct. Food was good, but disappointed overall.

Dinner before Eagles Concert. Good service and all 4 of us enjoyed our meals. Great Crème Brule . Noticed that the food has improved over our last visit. Place was full but we were pleased how we were to get in and out on a timely basis. It is an old stand by for our Colts games.

I chose this restaurant for its proximity to the Hyatt Regency and the IRT. We saw a play about Venice Italy and then had a wonderful Italian dinner. Our 2 friends joined us to celebrate my wife's birthday that was recognized nicely by the restaurant staff with a complimentary ice cream dessert. We enjoyed the mussels and clams and I had the Paella for the entree. It was the second best paella I've ever had. We had cocktails and our friends joined in with wine and beer. My Old Fashioned bourbon cocktail was the best ever!
Everyone enjoyed all their choices. No complaints, only compliments were shared.
Very enjoyable and satisfactory in every category. Service was attentive without being intrusive.

This was our second time here. I thought it was interesting that when I tried to make reservations it would only let me do the 7:15 time and nothing later but when we got to the restaurant there were lots of empty tables the entire time we were there. So not sure what that was about. Our server was excellent and our food was good.

We went to Palomino because it is one the best Italian restaurant`s in the Midwest in our opinion. The staff is always friendly when you go, the wait staff is very kind, the kitchen staff is amazing, and the food is outstanding. It is defiantly a place I would recommend if you are going out on a date, an anniversary date, or just a casual night out.
