We dined prior to a performance at the 5th Avenue Theater. Hostess was efficient, table was ready and service prompt. We enjoyed our meal (pasta and a salmon dish) and made the theater in ample time!

Right downtown Seattle near 5th Avenue Theatre(if you are going to a play this is perfect) and just a short walk to the waterfront and Pikes Place Market. Staff was knowledgeable and attentive...dinner was good...hot and came at a reasonable pace.

I absolutely loved my meal off the Daily Sheet--It was a Wild Mushroom Ravioli with braised lamb, and it was to die for. The bread was great, and I split a salad with my husband, which was also fabulous...a wilted spinach with mushrooms and almonds. The house red wine was superb, and we were all thrilled with our meals, except the person who ordered pizza. It was just blah--he shared some with us, and we were all disappointed. My husband liked his ravioli dish, but said that my dish was way better. Our waitress was absolutely fabulous--I would ask for advice on what to order and avoid the pizza. The prices are average for a nice Seattle restaurant, and they were great about getting us in ahead of our reservation and getting us out in plenty of time for the play we were attending.

Traffic held us up so we were a bit late for our reservation. Palamino held our reservation and promptly seated us.
Service and food were excellent.
Did not care for the surcharge on our bill to offset the $15 minimum wage.

My husband had cioppino which was great. I had the burger, meat was good but they had so many strong flavors it was too much. The lemoncello cake was delicious!

For years I’ve been eating/drinking at palominos. It is a great place to go before the theater and a great place to go after the theater. The staff, most usually, are excellent and the food, mostly, is terrific. It’s great place to go for dinner, for lunch, for drinks, etc. etc. etc. Put it on your go to list.

Restaurant was half empty but our business group was seated next to a family, making it awkward for both groups. Food was mediocre, felt like Cheesecake Factory or macaroni grill. Appetizers were very disappointing.

A good option as we head into the wet part of the year, since I work in the same building. Had a visit with a friend at lunch at 12:30; no waiting. Got a good table for 2 and had the soup/sandwich combo- Portuguese Kale soup not bad for a downtown full-service restaurant.

Okay if you like eating your entree on a small plate while they recook the charred—absolute black grilled veggies. Never did bring any potatoes back after layering them in a spicy smashed something. Really a disappointment.

Palomino is one of our favorite downtown restaurants. We drive over from the Eastside for theater or to meet friends. The ease of validated parking offsets tbe slightly higher pricepoint. The waitstaff is always most helpfull with a great balance between attention, and respecting our curtain time. They always get us out in time when we ask, and respect quiet conversation time when we are not rushed. The happy hour menu is fabulous, but the noise level in the bar is a bit much for us. On a non-theater Friday evening last week we were able to linger over our drinks and dinner for at least 2 hours without a hint of rush from our server...heaven.
