    I expected a quiet restaurant with an outdoor patio, but it was so noisy. We couldn’t hear each other for the waitress. I don’t think that loud music really helps your dining experience. The food was OK but not great and the prices were really high. The steak and prime rib was very good And the salmon was quite good. The pasta was also good best gluten-free pasta. My daughter had ever had the dessert of sorbet was not very good like the pistachios just pistachio flavoring. It wasn’t really nuts in it. Fennel salad was quite good but not great all in all pretty overpriced And rushed feeling.

    Usually never leave reviews, but went here for Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and it was so cute, loved the ambiance especially the live music and the table set up. Food was pretty good, it was a little pricey but I loved it all. I recommend this place for a nice romantic date night!

    Wonderful food, service, and ambiance. Everything we ordered (hummus, tuna tartare, truffle pasta, chicken pizzacoli, desserts) was amazing. And the Paloma Venice cocktail was delicious. You will dine well here, with very attentive service. And it’s expensive, but what a treat.

    It’s a beautiful restaurant, and the food was amazing. The rigatoni was Bolognese sauce, the chicken Parm as well as a bunch of the appetizers we shared a bunch of items and everything was delicious. We were there for a late lunch on a Saturday. It was a sunny day and the restaurant was stunning. The gorgeous hostess in the front from Milan is so nice as well too. Service top notch all around. Definitely recommend.

    Four of us went for lunch and sat in the covered patio. The food was delicious. The service was excellent, people were very friendly. My only problem was is that as a handicap person I can’t just park on the street and hope for the best. They do have a space in front if you are fortunate enough to get there when the space is available.

    There was a 5% “benefits” service charge that we were not aware of and they charged $40 for bringing our own bday cake, however when we called prior to serving, they said no fee for the cake. We are not happy about these fees and already the prices are high. We won’t go back.

    The ambience is beautiful. I ordered the spinach ravioli with spinach, ricotta & sage butter sauce. I didn’t like it at all. It was too cheesy. I couldn’t taste the ricotta or sage butter sauce. It tasted like a plain cheese dish. I know ricotta is a cheese but it’s a lot smoother and lighter. At least the server was kind enough to take back the dish and asked if there was something else I wanted. My friend ordered the salmon and she even said it wasn’t that great. I haven’t had any of the other dishes from their menu but it was a disappointing night. I really wanted to like this restaurant. Maybe it was just that night that the food wasn’t great?

    Decor and ambiance was great. Service was ok and it wasn't really busy. It was either slow or felt rushed. At one point we all had our glasses up making a toast and the waitress came up to our table asking to place our order and just standing there waiting. And they must of came over 4 times to try and take our plates while we were still eating. Timing was off.

    This was my 3rd time at Paloma and while the food and vibe was still great, I was incredibly disappointed that the restaurant failed to inform me that 3/4 of the place was rented for private holiday parties. No matter where they offered to seat us it felt as if we were party crashes. They seriously offered us a table next to a buffet table for one of the parties! Honestly they should have called anyone holding a reservation to let us know that there might be people standing next to our table socializing at a party. Not cool, Paloma. Not cool.

    We did not sit outdoors as requested because there was a large private party and the only tables available were between the party and the bar. We were kindly given a table indoors - which was fine, because it was less noisy. The atmosphere is beautiful! The food was very good - although pretty rich.cocktails and wine by the glass were great. We very much enjoyed it, although I'd look forward to going back, not during the holiday season and sitting on the beautiful outdoor deck.

    The Food and Atmosphere were great. We brought a bottle of wine and I was a bit put off by the $50.00 corkage fee, I thought that was a lot. I have seen about $30 for the average for a nice restaurant.
