This is the stable of our pre-theatre experience. I recommend this establishment without any hesitation. The food is excellent with the service attentive but not intrusive.

Staff was ready to seat us right away. Although we did ask for a different table since they sat us at a table that was small and had trouble getting our legs around the legs of the table. Staff accommodated our request with a smile and without hesitation gave a different table which was more comfortable. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Gave us a 10% credit since we were going to the 5th Av for Mamma Mia. Made sure we knew how to get from the restaurant to the theatre. Good start to our evening.

4 of us went before a show for dinner. We each enjoyed our dinner. 2 had pasta which was flavorful and fresh. The waiter was very entertaining and made sure we got out in time for our show. The starter bread is always nice served with a tomato sauce (that needs salt). We ended with creme brulee which was smooth and nice with fresh berries.

I used to work in the building, but hadn't been back for a number of years after my firm relocated. Returning to Palomino was an absolute joy. The atmosphere and food were fabulous and fun. Eric is bar-none the best waiter we have ever had, both delightful and attentive, entertaining and utterly professional. Hurrahs for the rotisserie meats, the amazing appetizers, and the creative drinks as well. Particularly good for pre- or post-theatre.

How can you like cold fries, cold pasta, and a grilled chicken sandwich that's still cold in the middle? Hadn't eaten here for a few years and this was a big surprise. Doubt that I will be back very soon. Definitely not up to par and I really can't find a reason to recommend it since there are so many other really good dining opportunities in Seattle.

Good service and nice touch was a free dessert and candle for birthday celebration. Disappointed that Paella is off the menu. Our substitute was okay but rotisserie chicken needs to be cooked more thoroughly so I can eat it there and not take home to finish cooking. Chop Chop salad was as good as always.

Great food and terrific service. Met an old friend to catch up and our server, Tony, was aware of this and was very kind to let us take our time. This is a great place for meeting friends and respecting good, casual food. Definitely one of our favorites in Seattle.

Very good food as well as service. We requested a booth and got a very nice spot. Close proximity to the 5th Ave so it was a quick walk to our show. Would recommend this place.

Great food and popular location. The service we had that day was one of the best, however the noise level for such an open atmosphere restaurant was over the top. We could barely hear the person talking one seat away. We will not come back to this place for a business meal.

Even though I work in the building in which Palomino is located, I had not been there for
a couple of years. I'd forgotten just had great it is -- food and service. I'll be back soon.
