Malone’s - Palomar
Our server Wade was a delight. Such a nice person with an engaging personality!
Thank you for the dessert!
Salmon was served hot and perfectly cooked. The two chicken dishes at the table were reported as wonderful as well. Really can't go wrong here.
Usually eat at Tate’s creek location but couldn’t get reservation. Disappointed at the Paloma location. Even though we had a late reservation the Resturant was filled with high school kids all unmasked very noisy with Covid made us feel very uncomfortable Food sub par as compared to Tate’s creek location. My mistake was not to have walked out immediately after assessing the situation.
Girls out to dinner before Homecoming! Everything was perfect!
Please install lights in the ladies room. Ambiance is not needed in there. The salmon has been dry the last few tines. I order medium and it has been well done.
We must have had a new waitress and assistant. We had to ask them to take empty dishes and for refills on drinks and salads. Also messed up our drinks order and also didn’t get some food we ordered. We told her how we wanted the checks split and it was completely messed up. We just decided to Venmo each other so we didn’t have to wait any longer. The food is always the BEST but this is the Worst service I have ever had.
It was an awesome experience! Thank you for showing my wife to a great first time!
Great as always. We will return.
To go salad is the best.
great service. noise level allowed fir conversation fabulous food
Birthday fun dinner
Great steak as always. Love the fact that I could ask for lightly seasoned steaks. Great customer experience. Unexpectedly, but well deserved, crowded on a Thursday night.
Food was excellent
Server Bri was great. Greek salad fantastic. Steak & shrimp great too.
The noise level is unbelievably loud. To the point that I wanted to leave. But then I would missed out on the amazingly tender and tasteful filet. Melt in your mouth good.
And the framed autographs on the wall? Please try something else. Half the people don’t know who they are and the other half doesn’t care.
Emphasize the food!! The service!!! Both top notch. Top notch!
We received a card and free dessert in celebration of our anniversary! So thoughtful!
I wanted to take my family to a special place to celebrate a birthday. The service was excellent and the steaks were prepared as each of us requested. We enjoyed our meal and our evening.
It was an extremely busy evening and they did the best they could but the bar was slow and server was inexperienced.
Great pick!!!! Loved the food. Highly recommend. The salad was amazing and the steak was cooked perfectly.
Adrian had his birthday there and everything was amazing!
The service and food were amazing. Would have preferred a booth to a table. Otherwise a great night out. Fantastic food and a great server.
We’ve never had anything but excellent service and stellar food at Malones. It’s our go to special occasion restaurant.
Always a great dinner and atmosphere!
Wonderful food & service! Great atmosphere for having a nice dinner
Great service. Food is consistently good. Our “go-to” restaurant.
Outstanding service! Food was great but it is pretty loud
Service was not what you expect from Malones
Food and service were all outstanding. I had t been to Malone’s on along time and am definitely looking forward to going back soon!
Great food, wonderful service, nice decor...but very LOUD and that was in the dining room! You'll have a great meal, but be prepared to yell at each other LOL
Fine quality food and excellent service. Never disappoints.
Our server was very overworked in her section, seating large groups repeatedly. Sadly, this means that the 2 of us got the short end of the stick.
We waited far too long for drinks. The runner kept trying to bring me the wrong food and I kept refusing it, not realizing that, due to the noise, the server didn't hear my order correctly. She even repeated the baked potato to me and I still got fries. So, I picked at my meal, but she did offer to get me a baked potato.
Free dessert was offered and enjoyed.
This isn't a horrible experience but is the worst I have had there.
Yes, we'll go back.
Very loud. Took a very long time for food. Nearly $30 for one crab leg and it was very overcooked
Malones is the finest go to restaurant in Lexington Ky. We’ve tried the other top 5 restaurants in Lexington and we always end up back at Malones. We have never had a bad meal or service at Malones. This particular night we were celebrating a special birthday and the restaurant was packed there was a small glitch with the birthday mans meal and the server and the management went over and above to fix this small issue. Our evening turned out to be awesome due to how the management at Malones always goes on and above to make sure you and your guests feel like you are the only diners in the restaurant. 5 STARS+++
Food & service is always on point!
Wonderful experience as always!
Great food and fantastic service.
White fish was phenomenal, salmon special delicious, filet spectacular.
Also recommend the cheesecake for dessert.
Service was great- very attentive but not overbearing.
Service wasn’t as good as all the times we have been and food was not warm.
This was our first visit to Malone's (Palomar). It was my husband's birthday. While we generally enjoyed our meal, there were some things we had to learn about the menu and how Malone's serves its meals.
(1) The salad was brought to us in one bowl, so we had to serve ourselves. That was a surprise, but the salad was very good.
(2) I could not understand why Twin Filets with toppings weighed in at 9 oz., just like Twin Filets without toppings, but were less expensive. It appears the toppings figure into the total weight, whereas the more expensive plain Twin Filets are just all meat. We each brought home a filet, and the weight without the topping was only 3.5 oz.
(3) The filets were served in a soupy "au jus" -- not preferred.
(4) The toppings were just okay. My husband had the Rockefeller Au Gratin, and I had the Bleu Cheese. The cheese appeared to be mixed with a filler or flour, I wasn't sure -- it did not seem to be "all cheese."
(5) My husband ordered the Cheesecake for dessert, and he enjoyed it.
Our server, Sheena, was the best! She was very upbeat, smiling, and responsive throughout our meal. She was without a doubt the best part of our visit to Malone's. We would recommend Malone's to others, with the caveat that "you pay for what you get." It's possible that the more expensive entrees on the menu would be more satisfying than what we ordered this time out. We may give Malone's a try another time.
