    Everything was very good, except the main entrays. Risotto was very runny, not much flavor. The Mafalde was good but the meat was very, very salty. Our server Philipp, was outstanding!

    The noise level was horrendous! We could not carry on a conversation at all & we had to ask our waiter to repeat what he was saying. The food was OK, but not outstanding. My husband definitely did not like his short rib risotto.

    I had such an incredible time. My friend recommended the scallops, which I thoroughly enjoyed. And then my friends and I also got bucatini and Brussels sprouts to share. I cannot wait to go back. Definitely a new favorite spot for me.

    I was in town visiting a doctor friend at Mayo and they took me to Our Paladar. I was blown away— the ambiance, quality of the food, and service made it feel like we were out in NYC and not Rochester, MN! The cocktails were incredible and the short rib was cooked to perfection. 10/10 will definitely return when back in town!

    The food was not fresh or tasty, some of the items were un eatable and too hard to even cut with the knife, looks like the food was prepared several hours earlier. The service was very good and to cocktails were good too.

    All aspects of our dinner were top notch. Attentive, friendly, informed waitstaff and delicious food and drink. I have a dairy intolerance which I informed them of ahead of time. They took great care, contacting me to reassure me there were options available for me and had a menu prepped for me upon arrival. All of the dairy free options were delicious! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    Food was fantastic with delicious flavors. I had the chicken paillard, with sides of roasted cauliflower and steamed white asparagus. I also got to try the braised octopus as an appetizer. All soooo good! The ambience at Our Paladar is really chill, although it was a bit noisier than usual because it was a crowded Friday evening. Service was excellent. The waiter was very helpful in guiding us through the options that could be gluten-free -- a requirement for one of our party. Despite the Friday night prime time dining slot, we had a delightful meal and conversation without feeling hurried. This place is a real gem.

    We began our meal with an order of focaccia and hummus (served with warm pita bread) -- both were wonderful. My husband had the Mafalde wild boar ragu. I had the vegetarian dish, Gnudi. We were both pleased with our meals. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert so we shared a French Press of coffee. Although not the quickest, our server was sweet, friendly, and knowledgeable.

    A real jewel in this city! Food is imaginative and high end with modern twists on classic recipes. The mint and chive compounded butter melted over the crusty focaccia bread as we began eating their version of a Burrata salad topped with a pistachio-mint pesto. The in-house made pasta excelled in both the Bucatini and Rigatoni dishes we had. AND … they had a Pavlova dessert to die for! The cocktails, while a little small, were very good. The atmosphere is casual in a renovated train station and the service was excellent and friendly. Next time, we are in town, we will be back.

    The warmest welcome, the smiles on every face - the staff, the chef and the customers. The beautiful dining room set the mood of relaxation and community. The food and drinks were superb. Every dish was balanced and full of flavor. The duck was sublime. The risotto rich and as good as it gets. Honestly it was all top flight. Service was attentive and timely. My favorite restaurant in Rochester and anywhere. 🌟

    My husband and I dined at Our Paladar over the weekend. We sat at the long counter top in the bar area. The restaurant has a cozy and welcoming feel. It was Sunday afternoon, the sun was shining in providing the perfect amount of natural lighting.We started off with two cocktails, the Smoke & Spice and Butter Me Up, both were fantastic. We ordered a dozen of the pink moon oysters, which my husband loved so much that he keeps talking about coming back to get more. Bonus, they are on the happy hour menu. I had the Denver steak, which was perfectly seared & seasoned. My husband had the wild boar ragu, which was made with fresh Mafalde pasta. He said it was perfectly balanced. We finished off dinner with two cocktails, the #1126 and the Painkiller. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere and relaxing vibe is just an added bonus to the fantastic meal we had. We will definitely be back soon!

    We did a late valentine date. The service and food were exceptional! The ambiance is very nice. I love the cozy and warm feel when I’m here. The menu is changing with the seasons, and is unique and delicious. For a quick bite, the smash pork burger is a good choice.
