Showed up for dinner but Palomino didn't have our opentable reservation in their system. We ended up sitting in the bar. Food was good, service was good. We were surprised to find out that the restaurant was closing for good the next night on Sept. 25, 2017. It is no longer open for business.
We like to go here prior to events at the Geffen - walking distance. The food, service and ambiance is pretty good. $20 corkage fee if you bring your own bottle of wine.
This place was dreadful. The wait staff was indifferent to the point of hostility. The food was not as advertised. My "heirloom" tomatoes were actually underripe grape tomatoes. The entres were largely inedible. If anyone noticed they did not care. 70% of the tables were empty--as the quality of the experience would suggest they should be. This place will not be in business in six months.
Nice quiet booth table for a party of 3, which I appreciated. Great service by wait staff. Brought my 2 staff, both of whom had birthdays, and they each received a piece of tiramisu "cake." They had to take it to-go as they were so full from the great meal. One had the burger, the other had a pasta dish. I had the crab cakes which were perfectly cooked and had a dab of two great sauces. Palomino is always consistently terrific! Thank you once again!
Excellent service. Great dinner
I will miss this neighborhood gem in Westwood. The food is always good (never too salty) and the service is wonderful and very friendly. I understand that there are two other locations. I wish them well.
Unfortunately the restaurant in closing at the end of this month, but the food is excellent and the serviced always great.
Too bad they are closing in a few days. The landlord wants more $$ and they probably will never find as good a restaurant to fill the space...same thing happened when Palomino left Honolulu...they could never find a good tenant and it remains vacant.
We went here for the first time in years primarily as it is the best option as to proximity to the Geffen theatre. We were pretty much shocked at the very high level of food we had:
1) Truffled deviled eggs - not only delicious, but the truffle (oil) could be tasted. Just excellent
2) Possibly the best pizza we've ever had - an out of the box preparation with dough the thickness of paper and strong, perfect flavor.
Wines are good but desserts aren't much
Very tasty food and for a great value. Palomino is a great location for a lively bar area and also a more quiet dinner service area as well. I choose this restaurant to entertain an out of town business client.
