    Malone’s Palomar always misses the mark with service and there’s zero ambiance in the restaurant layout. Service was below par. Won’t be back at this location.

    Very nice place to eat. The server was sweet. The food was good. Malones was nice to accommodate a larger reservation and we even had to change it. The table was ready when promised. A manager comes around to make sure everything is ok. All around a great experience.

    Disappointed Great food but the service team here has gone downhill and does not reflect the quality of food and price. Had food dropped on my lap twice on my birthday off of plates by one server. Our main waitress was knowledgeable about the food products . Unfortunately her mood was detached and dry and she was in no rush to make sure that we were happy - extremely disappointed especially since one of our meals was a $65 steak. There are other places in Lexington with top notch service, wishing I had gone there for my birthday instead :(

    Usually our food is top-notch… We have been going there for so many years but this time it was so salty! When I leave half of my steak and half of my fries then you know something is wrong. We told the manager and he said that the food is normally heavily seasoned. We will return but we will definitely make some changes

    Our food was excellent, was served promptly and was reasonably priced. Our steaks were tender and prepared just as we had asked. The tall, blueberry cheesecake was out of this world. Jason, our server, was knowledgeable, very nice and while attentive did not hover. As has always been the case we had a wonderful dinner and look forward to our next visit.

    30th wedding anniversary. We have always enjoyed the food here, and we are always well taken care of. Our experience was great, they acknowledged our anniversary and even gave us a dessert. They also acknowledged my service and gave us a really nice military veteran’s discount. Our waitress, Rachel R., was the absolute best! Thank you for the excellent service.

    Love this place! We went for a birthday celebration and the food was divine, the service was on point, and the atmosphere was pleasant. It’s not cheap, but this is one of the best steakhouses I’ve been to in the US and worth it!

    The service was very slow. We were seated 5 minutes before our reservation time at 2pm. There were hardly any diners in the restaurant. However, the food took over an hour later before it arrived at our table. We had finished our salads and bread and the kids had completed the activities on the children's menu and we were still waiting on our food. We asked the helper of the server to check on our food and he came back and said, "It will still be a while." I asked, "How long is a "while?"" To which he replied, "A while longer, several more minutes." Our server came by shortly after he did and went to check on our food. She said it would be a few more minutes. When our food arrived, the baked potatoes were lukewarm. The steaks were cooked correctly and were good, although, my son asked for light seasoning on his steak because the black pepper they put on them is overwhelming sometimes and he said it was still burning his mouth -- so they may have forgotten the light seasoning part. Given there were only 6-8 other tables with guests, we would have expected much better service and our food to have been ready faster than it was. When kids are getting antsy and everyone is getting hangry, it's not a good combination. We eat at Malone's in Hamburg often, Tates Creek sometimes but rarely eat at Palomar. I'm not sure if this is typical for that location or if it was a rare experience but at any rate, it was disappointing. I hope the management and staff work harder to build an exceptional guest experience based on this review.
