Two of us arrived early, went into the bar to have a drink. The bartender was on break, wait staff seemed to be on their own to make drinks and deliver to their tables. Took a long time for us to get served. When others in our party arrived, we checked in and went to table. This also took a long time as there wasn’t a host, we were eventually greeted by a waiter who took us to a table. Half our menus were lunch menus, causing confusion. Waiter must have had too many tables, as he was always in a rush on the rare occasion he was able to visit our table. Not likely to go back.

Went to Palomino Bellevue for Valentines dinner. We've both been there many times for lunch/dinner/happy hours. Server was great. Very friendly, funny, attentive, etc. I had the scallops and risotto which was excellent. My wife had the Seafood Louie salad and was disappointed. The crab had absolutely no flavor and a wet mushy texture. First time we've ever been disappointed with the food there.

Bologenese was just pasta with a tiny bit of red sauce and basically no meat with some cheese on top. Not worth it at all.

The prime rib was a bit tough.

The sever, Becky, was very good and polite.

Overall probably won’t go back for that quality of food for the price.

Palomino is one of our go-to's for a casual dinner out in Bellevue. We went early for a cocktail in the bar before dinner and had such a cozy table in the back, we decided to stay put in the bar for dinner. Fun evening. My husband's salmon was perfectly cooked; my parmesean-crusted sole and brocolini were a bit greasy, so not my best meal ever. We shared the double chocolate truffle gelato for dessert, which made up for my main!

This is supposed to be such a great place. I was truly disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. It has a tendency to be noisy. The server was well trained, but I did not feel any sense of caring, or that we were anything other than her next customers. Always smiling, but it looked pasted on. The fries are so small it is like eating fried toothpicks. Maybe that's the "in" thing, but sure did not add anything to the meal. Beats me how they get the big points for eating there. May try again for Happy Hour, but it surely lacked anything that would make me feel that I need to have dinner there again.

Palomino's menu offers a broad selection without being overwhelming lengthy. The quality of the food is excellent, and chef has selected nice portion sizes.

Sunday brunch early with less than 20% tables occupied. Meal service was very slow, presentation ranged from thoughtful (eggs Benedict) to no thought (bacon cheddar omelet). Eggs Benedict were undercooked (whites were runny) and the granola yogurt berry bowl was served with no granola. While it was comped AFTER we raised the issue, how does a restaurant run out of granola with a Safeway 200’ away? Overall, the appearance of the restaurant is dated, vinyl chairs are cracked and it just felt tired. We really used to like the Palomino as a special occasion but it seems to be going the way of Stuart Anderson and The Keg.

The food was fine but the service was terrible. Our waitress, Joy, took our orders and we didn't see her until dessert. We had to ask someone else to bring us our wine and our soup. She was very nice but inefficient. I, also, had to get the manager to redo our check when she did not apply the gift card that was given to her with the check. The manager finally had to take over to straighten out our bill.

Our service was great! I had the chicken parmesan which the server regarded as his favorite. I am glad I had it, it was amazing!

The bartender made a perfect Cosmo. All of the staff was extremely friendly, smiling and made you feel very welcome. Not pretentious as some other restaurants nearby.

I would highly recommend Palomino to everyone.

Food was good. Ambiance and service is much better at Seattle location. Salad and soup came out after main entry. Seemed waitress was stretched too thin.

Dry, flavorless omlets with a few tiny potatoes as the only accompaniment , not even a sad piece of toast. They should get out of the brunch business, their food at lunch and dinner is great but brunch was overpriced and under flavored.

Got a birthday coupon from Restaurants Unlimited. Went for a nice meal and fun surroundings (the bar was packed with an office party crowd). The food is good. The ambiance is good. There is a half price wine bottle day. What's not to like?
