Amazing dinner as usual -- love the food and the speciality margaritas -- I love this restaurant -- one of my favorites in Colorado and it is right down the road ...
The bartender needs to know when to stop drinking.
Palomino was a good, but not great, choice for dinner. I ordered chili rellenos with green chili and got red chili instead. While tasty, it wasn’t what I ordered. My husband’s chicken chipotle pasta was a great choice for him; it was delicious. Our dessert of kahlua mud pie was missing the kahlua and was nothing more than vanilla ice cream in an Oreo crust. It was okay but not stellar. There are better Mexican restaurants in the Loveland/Windsor area.
Great service and amazing food! I made my reservation before I left my house therefore we had a short wait instead of a 35 min!
My favorite restaurant in Northern Colorado ... without exception. Food is great and Elise is a fantastic server/waitress .... love it !
Good service. Food was prepared very quickly. A little noisy if you plan to hold a conversation, but good food for a reasonable price.
Favorite restaurant in Loveland. Will be going back frequently.
one of the BEST restaurants in Northern Colorado - and Elise simply rocks!!
Great! As always!
Casual lunch, not very crowded. Our server was competent 😎
Food was great! Our server Baily was awesome. We'll be back!
The service was great from the mint we walked in until we left! Food, as usual, was very good!
It was very busy but with the reservation they sat us right away and it made life super easy. The food was absolutely delicious. I recommend the enchiladas
Girls at reception were rude and unaccommodating with any requests.
Waitress was great!
Food was excellent as was the service. Noise was very loud, but it was a Friday night so that’s to be expected.
Waitress was very busy
We've been twice now and really LOVE the food. The Nachos are great because of the shredded beef and all the extras like sour cream and Guacamole. I've tried the margarita flight and love the Palamino and the Presidente Margaritas. We have ordered the Chimichanga, the a couple of the combination plates. I really liked the Number 4 with the relleno, the tamale and the beef enchilada. Great service and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend and we will be back.
One of our faves. We eat here on a regular basis because it's great food and we can reserve on opentable!
The food is always great & we weren’t disappointed this time. The service is always great. We will be back soon!
Great food great service. First time there, definitely will be back
My favorite Mexican place. The food is amazingly delicious! And the service is top notch.
I made reservations for the bar. 20 minutes after reservation time we were seated in the dining room, right inside the door. The noise level was unreasonably loud. Service, food and drinks though excellent as usual.
Great as always! Been a customer since it opened.
Amazing food -- wish we had Elise as waitress -- our waiter was not very good
A favorite of mine. Staff very friendly and food was great.
I've never had a bad meal at Palomino. My favorite is the Beef & Bean Chimichanga. It's topped with green chili and has rice and beans. It's always been good. The fresh hot chips and salsa is great also. On Happy hour you can get a 1/2 order of bean & cheese dip for less than $2. I've also had the carnitas with rice and beans which is also excellent. Our son likes the El Gordo burrito. He usually only eats 1/2 of it and takes the other half home. He's 38. Thursday night is 1.99 margarita or Sangria. Both are very good. Service is always excellent. This is one of our favorite places to eat in the Windsor area.
My burrito was barely warm. Usually the plates are hot mine was not. No beans and rice comes with the meal. My wife got nacho platter and she was like Eh. The chips and salsa that was brought to table were excellent. And the waitress was very nice.
Easy to reserve on Open Table. Seated right away, a booth just as requested. Our server Don was excellent, made suggestions and met our every need promptly and cheerfully. Best menu, best food in the area - and there’s a lot of competition. We come often, have also hosted several family gatherings here.
Our server did not greet us for 10-15 minutes after being sat. She complained about being at work since 10am and was short and rude with us. She forgot to enter an item so one person in our party did not get his food with the rest of us. The food was sub par. I did not eat my taco as the shredded beef looked gray to me. When we asked for our bill she said she messed up the bills and needed more time to fix it. After about 20 minutes of waiting for our check, my husband got up and found her and said we weren’t going to wait any longer and wanted our check now. She came over to our table and told us to leave. So we did. We will never be back to any of their locations.
Loved our server who was prompt at every turn. Great Carne Asada and well crafted cocktails! Margaritas of course!
The manager Elyse is exceptional. Our server, a guy who normally runs food, was great.
Very nice experience! Initially I called the restaurant, then decide to use Open table. Got a table an hour earlier.
The food was pretty good. The queso was a great start and the guac was fantastic. Girlfriend ordered a marg, which was also incredibly tasty. Servers were very friendly as well. I’d definitely come back.
Don't get the fried ice cream. Mine was separated a full half inch-inch from the shell and ice cream. My gf and I couldn't tell if the topping was whipped cream or marshmallow based on the liquid consistency just dumped on top of the ice cream. Taste was meh, presentation was awful.
The rest of the food was good! Only complaint was the fried ice cream.
Seafood enchiladas were just average. Black beans would be an improvement over brown. Rice is rice. The meal was just okay. I did love the salsa and chips.
We frequent this place and always keep coming back. Love the food. Never disappoints
The manager, Elyse, is simply outstanding! The server, Jessicia,did a fantastic job.
The house margaritas are not as good as they were a year or so ago.
Everything else is great 👍
Good food, refreshing margaritas and friendly service.
