Paladar Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed that this restaurant has slowly declined over the past few years. There used to be a manager that walked the floor greeting customers and asking how the dinner was going. My experience was getting poor service from two inexperienced wait staff who were sharing our table - forgetting silverware, water refills, slow drink service, having to flag them down when needed anything - no attention to detail.
The menu choices have become much less - used to be a few pages, now down to one side food the other drinks - so you’d expect that what they do make would be excellent, but unfortunately it’s not the case. We had a party of four at our table and none of us were excited about our entrees - luke warm salmon, pink pork that was too sweet - even the person with leftovers decided not to take them home.
This used to be a unique restaurant but will be lucky to survive amongst all the competition unless they make some drastic changes in their customer service and food quality.
We had a mix-up due to the Open Table app. I thought I booked a reservation at the King of Prussia, PA location, which was 5 minutes away, but didn't realize that it brought up the Annapolis location for the reservation. . .about 2 hours away! When we got to the restaurant in King of Prussia, they knew nothing of the res and my phone died just at that time, so I couldn't pull up my confirmation email from Open Table. Fortunately they were very nice about it and charged my phone for me. When my friend showed the confirmation email, we saw what happened with the booking in the wrong place. The place was packed and no tables were available, but we lucked out and got 2 seats together at the bar, which is first come first serve and no reservation needed. The food was good as always. Excellent Guacamole to share, Duck Tacos and Shrimp and Grits. All were delicious! Just be careful when using Open Table's app to make sure the correct location comes up.
Perhaps we should not have tried out the restaurant on NYE? Our reservation for 7:30 was well handled and we were seated right away. We started with chicken empanadas which were quite good. The side salad was pleasant. My husband ordered Jerk Chicken, and I ordered the marinated Salmon dish, from the grill menu, which had a star indicating it was very popular. But then my husband's chicken was dry, and overcooked. My salmon was ordered "medium" but was quite overcooked, and therefore lacking in flavor. The accompanying crunchy carbohydrate was very good. The vegetable was yucca which looked like sweet potato, but not sweet.
Service was attentive for most of the evening, except for a break in service for about 10 minutes. We needed to get a take home box. I was watching out and then I noticed about 5 or 6 servers, including ours, emerging from the kitchen area at once. She apologized for the delay. I thought it was curious that they would have held a servers meeting on a busy night. The atmosphere in the restaurant is dark, with a high ceiling, nicely appointed, and the tables are not to crowded together. It was quiet enough to converse easily. A nice date restaurant, with a soothing atmosphere, but the chef needs to keep an eye on the meat thermometer.
This was our second visit to Paladar Annapolis and it was as expected.
Rochelle, our host, was on her first week there, and did a great job taking care of us.
If you are in the area and want great Latin American food at a place that is in the middle of a very nice shopping center (our experience with most Latin restaurants is that they usually are in a seedy part of town), then Paladar is your option.
Many gluten free options and amazing guacamole! The servers are always knowledgeable and usually have great recommendations. They will do their absolute best to accommodate any dietary needs. Service can be slower at times but I think that's due to the servers having large sections, which isn't their fault.
The front desk was a bit confused when we arrived. They started to show us to our table, then said that we had to wait while they tried to figure out another reservation which had not even arrived. The menu has good choices. We opted to have a salad as an appetizer but our salads and my meal arrived at the same time. My husband's meal "had been held" until after his salad was finished. The tables are close together and the place had several large groups that night so therefore the noise level was quite high. We highly recommend the mini donuts on the dessert menu. We would return but probably not on a Saturday night.
Sunday is usually a quiet night so the service was excellent and the ambience was relaxed and quiet. Guacamole and chips were excellent. My fish tacos were very tasty but I think the fish might have been breaded and fried. Have eaten there before and food is always good. Margarita was also good.
We loved our experience at Paladar! Went for a birthday dinner- didn't bother telling our server because we didn't want to make a big fuss. Best part was the appetizers- our guac and queso were sublime. Drinks were also strong and flavorful. Then moved onto mains- tacos, pork, flautas. If we had any criticism it would be that the pork wasn't seasoned enough to our liking. Our server (Michele?) was also wonderful, attentive, and had great suggestions! Great night.
The food and ambience was good, the service from the waiter just sucked. We was waiting for 15 minutes until someone actually came to the table and spoke to us. My friend ordered a drink and received the wrong drink not once, but twice. When we ask for condiments, it took another 20 minutes for that. I used to come here a lot but after this experience I will not be returning here again
They delivered our food to two other tables before bringing it to us and the drinks took twice as long as the food. But when we brought it to the managers attention she was very nice and apologetic. Overall a good meal, but not the service we had hoped for.
Decided it was time to try this place after two years in the area. It is definitely a keeper and we will return. The menu encompasses various Latin countries, done with the chef's own spin on them. I loved that there was a full page of alcoholic beverage options for everbody's tastes. I had the white sangria which was tasty but on the small side. Food options are also plentiful and prices not too steep. I tried a very intresting grilled chicken entree with veggies, yucca spaetzle and yummy kale. My hubby and son went with cuban sandwiches and fries. The chips and salsa appetizer featured plantain chips and another unique chip with the classic tortilla chips as well. Salsas were fresh and varied as well. Service was friendly and helpful. Atmosphere inside very cool and fun.
