We went to dinner prior to a show at the Paramount. Showed up a couple hours before the show and had a wonderful meal and experience before walk over to the show. They were out of one of the specials (Halibut), but had pleanty of other fine seafood dihes to choose from. Rated it A plus. I think its one of the best places to go before a show at the Paramount or the 5th Avenue from 40 years of experience.

Have been to this chain before and always had decent meals. This was not a decent meal. I had the spaghetti amantriciano - it was almost tasteless. The ambiance was also lacking a. It essentially a dressed up hallway in mall. The staff was fairly efficient, but a bit gruff and inattentive.

I would not recommend this restaurant, based on this very disappointing experience.

This is a really beautiful restaurant and we would not hesitate to go back! We had an issue with one well done meal but the mngt dealt with it immediately and looked after us. Our waiter was fantastic so you can’t blame anyone but the kitchen. Nice setting great menu and totally satisfied at the end of the evening! It’s a must try!

We celebrate at least one occasion at Palomino every year. The service is always friendly, professional, timely and uniformly excellent. Our server this year was no exception to the "Always excellent" rule.

A suggestion- get the 25% discounted Palomino gift cards at Costco.

Thanks for helping us with our celebration, Palomino!

Took my team from out of town here for lunch. I really liked the Seafood Louie salad and my companions liked the starter Bruschetta. Our server was very good at describing the specials.

Restaurant sounded perfect, however it is in a shopping mall and has the feel of a Cheesecake Factory. Wait staff were ok, but the wine recommendations were off.

My girlfriend and I had the fish special with the corn relish. Can't remember the exact name but it was pretty much tasteless and the presentation wasn't very great. The shrimp that were on the top of the fish were super tiny and also tasteless. She hardly ate hers. Very disappointing as she was visiting in town and I thought this would be a good place to go. The service was good though. Very friendly waitress.

One of our diners has a very strict diet - (no sugar no gluten, no cheese/dairy, no soy...) and our server was very helpful in finding and somewhat creating a meal that satisfied the requirements. Thank you!

Personally, I had the Hot Sausage and Mushroom pizza. It was excellent!

The service was poor. The food was only okay compared to the price. I checked twice to make sure the parking was validated but I had to pay $7 on the way out.
