Excellent food and great service; was very busy with some overly boisterous guests - but still a good time.

Went before show again and was not disappointed. They are reliable. Service staff always wonderful, friendly, witty and responsive. Food is good. I tried the chicken and spinach pizza which has thin crispy crust. A little bland for me, could have more flavor but looked pretty. Husband had pasta dish. Good flavor with pepper spice, sauce sunk to bottom of deep dish. I think it might be better served in a shallow bowl. Even with all this said we will most likely return and try more dishes.

I had asked for a special item that used to be on your menu. It was Gargonzola Penne. What I got was terrible. I couldn't taste the Gargonzola if it contained any. They had broiled the top of the dish so it was crusty. The cheese used didn't taste like Gargonzola. I was very disappointed with my food.

Food is really poor. Extremely salty pasta. Seafood salad consists of canned crab meat that tastes way too salty and very little flavor in the salad.

The service was great, as we came in a bit late and needed to be on time for the theater. The staff made sure this happened. The food, however, was very average. I look back several years and remember how good the food used to be. I don't know what has happened since then. My friend said her chicken marsala was kind of bland. My shrimp was good but not great. The asparagus appetizer was very good, but could have used more of the balsamic to give it more zing.

We have been to Pslomino a number of times, but for some reason the food was not as good as usual this time. It is on the pricey side, as well.

My only issue with Palomino, is literally the last 5 times I have booked here (plenty in advance) and for a business meeting, I've been put in the very back of the restaurant. You would think with Open Table VIP and the number of times that I visit this place for business lunches that they wouldn't shove me in the back so much.

As always, never a disappointment in menu selection or service. My party of two was well-treated and well served. Palomino’s is our “go to” eatery down town.

Tasty food, nice service! The nightly features were all appealing. I picked the salmon and gnocchi and it was prepared just right! I’m picky and I was not disappointed. The wait staff was very attentive and kind. I always admire the red blown glass light fixtures( they could use a little windex) the seating and atmosphere is comfortable and the location is handy to the theater. Look forward to my next visit, it could be before the theater or after the show, always fun at The Palomino.

Ordered the halibut which was dry, fishy and tough. This dining experience was just as disappointing as their Bellevue spot where we ate at a few weeks ago.

This was a great opportunity to catch up with a friend. We hadn't had lunch for several months although we had seen each other at various early morning breakfast events. Paul was our server and he was excellent, attentive and funny! Will definitely return in the near future and will ask for him.

Palomino seems a hidden gem. The food is consistently well prepared and the service above average. We went on Easter Sunday, there was no pre-theater crowd and it was easy to get in.
The maple chicken salad was very good, with a somewhat unusual maple flavor. The pistachio-topped mahi-mahi was also good, although a little light on the pistachios. Prices were reasonable for a Sunday, more-than-just-sandwiches lunch, and the service was pleasant and attentive.

Eric was our server and he was EXCELLENT! He made us feel like we were his only customers even though the restaurant was busy and it was a Saturday night. He introduced himself and asked us for our names, which he called us by each time he came by the table. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was welcoming. I would highly recommend Palomino Restaurant and will visit here again when I return to Seattle.

Food is slightly above average and overpriced but the service is always fantastic. Food took a long time to arrive but management made things right without even having to ask. Also, this restaurant company has a rewards program that is fantastic and should be utilized to save money down the line. Rewards program brings the food cost down to reasonable levels.

We have eaten at Palomino's in Seattle many times and it continues to be a favorite. The food and beverages are top notch and hard to beat elsewhere. Staff is uniformly pleasant, engaged, and helpful. In addition, validated parking in the building is greatly appreciated. We will certainly be back when eating in downtown Seattle.

Our meal at Palomino was disappointing at best. I ordered the salmon special with what was supposed to gnocchi. The salmon was over-cooked and dry and the gnocchi was more like potato turds than potato dumplings. My wife ordered the mahi special and it was just as bad as my salmon: dry and overcooked. Our server was great, but the food was terrible, and at $28/entree (plus tax, tip and "Seattle Minimum Wage surcharge) we'd never go back.
