I always love going here! The guacamole is delicious, as are the entrees and drinks. The salads are huge, too, and will actually fill you up. Plus great staff and very interesting decor.

The food was exquisite, save the jerk chicken wings, which, while cooked quite nicely, would have been perfect if they were crispier. Our server was nice, but the wait time was excessive at moments. We had to give our check to another hostess to conclude our lunch. This is a sticking point when you are on a lunch time crunch. But we will be back for the wonderful food—especially the guacamole and tacos!

We went on a double date for my best friend’s birthday, and everything was amazing. The food was delicious! We customized 3 kinds of guacamole, and they were all phenomenal. Our favorite had pickled jalapeños. So good! The drinks and entrees were also super yummy. Our server was friendly and attentive. Everything you could ask for. It might have been fun to bring out something special for my friend as a surprise for her birthday (since the reservation did mention her birthday), but I didn’t specifically request anything while we were there.

Really enjoyed my birthday lunch with friends. Angelo made the experience even better. Food was delicious and hostess was most gracious to my table change request. Will be back this weekend with others. The Charred pineapple caipirinha was the best!

Dining room area was nice for talking /bar was more loud and lively.

The Guac was delish and had lots of options for add ins. I had the fish tacos on Bibb lettuce and my 3 guests all had the pork tacos. All the food was artful and tasty.

Overall we had a good time catching up with our friends. The one VERY VERY noticeable drawback was a table of 3 women continually laughing very loudly. I’m certainly one for a good time, but it’s really annoying when patrons don’t consider others in the immediate area. Our party of 4 was at a table next to the booth of the 3 women and we had to strain to hear our conversation. While, of course, we didn’t expect management to do anything, after a few minutes we noticed they were finished their meal and hoped they would leave soon. That said, what really added to our frustration, was their waitress seemingly knew the 3 since she joined the conversation often as she checked on the table, and added to the cackling laughter. Food and service was ok but we didn’t really enjoy the evening until the cacklers left.

The food is always good here and usually the Mojitos are top notch. We had ordered three this time and they were just ok. Maybe a bad line or Mint? They were bitter.

A member of our party has food allergies and chose Paladar because of the menu options. Everyone in our party was impressed with the quality of food and selection options.

Fantastic entrees. Had the whole fried snapper and it was perfect. Pork shank was outstanding and beef tacos just as good. Table had several cocktails and sangria remains the best in the area.

We had a reservation. Were seated promptly. The food was delicious, but I have a food allergy and my food was not allergy free, as I was sick when I got home. I would recommend it, thought, for someone who does not have a food allergy.

The food came out cold. When we sent it back to the kitchen the waiter brought it back out in a soup bowl. Yeah it was hot, but steak in a bowl. Need I say more.

Wait staff and support are really inexperienced. Manager came around and there is good indication why these oversights are happening.

Bar and bartenders are excellent. Don’t bother eating in unless you’re staying at the bar. Bar food was excellent

You need to like that type of food. It was very tasty. A bit more spicy than I would like. But some at the table had dietary needs and the waiter worked with him to be sure we all got what we wanted, without making any one ill. If a friend wants to go I will probably go with but it was not my favorite food choice. Just my personal taste. All the food was good and served nicely.

We chose bar; our fault; why people must scream to talk, I mean yell! Awful!!!
They ran out of Grand Marnier and Cointreau for Margaritas. How is that possible? Those are bar staples.
Had to make with triple sec which ruins a perfect drink!

My husband and I went here for a date night and were sorely disappointed. The food was average at best, but the service was awful. Our waitress didn’t greet us when she got to our table, didn’t bother going over the menu or specials and didn’t return once our food was served. We had to flag her down for the check when we were ready to leave. We ordered the Argentinian mixed grill and the braised beef tacos, and both dishes tasted like over-grilled meat with no seasoning otherwise.

We usually really enjoy Paladar. I have to say my husband's shrimp and grits was very different this time as there was one inch square hunks of red onion. We asked the server and instead of having the manager come over and talk to us she said she would tell the cook. It was overall not a great experience.
