We had the greatest waiter. He was awesome. Asked what we wanted in terms of service and we told him we wanted to have a drink and wait some time before ordering. He was awesome and really attentive and funny and perfect for our evening. He deserves recognition! Great job Chris!!

The food was amazing. The waitress was VERY busy - not sure if she had too many tables or just always seems frazzled. She was very friendly and apologized every time she stopped by our table, which was only a few times. We were celebrating my sisters birthday and heading to a show after dinner. We ordered dessert but both got the wrong items - but at that point didn't have time to return them for the correct ones.

Dependable food and service, convenient parking, variety and fun. My sorority sisters and I routinely pick the Palomino for our birthday lunches because it is so conveniently located with accessible parking - we come from all over Puget Sound to meet. Our servers are consistently reliable and patient with our requests and the food is excellent.

Palomino is a reliable, quality restaurant in a convenient downtown location. We frequently go there for gluten free options for my wife and , on Wednesdays, "wine down Wednesdays" where bottle are half price. Pair it with a trip to the Fifth Avenue theater about a block away and you have a great mid week date night.

Enjoyed our dinner at Palomino. The dishes (steelhead for me, scallops with chorizo & polenta for my date) were quite good, and the server was friendly, authentic, and energetic. We had to endure a few brief delays with drink refills because they were very busy, but regardless, it was a lovely evening. We would go back.

We had a great late afternoon lunch at Palomino. The food and service were great. Palomino was a great holiday season spot, especially convenient due to the validated parking. Loved our holiday visit and family meal! We will be back!

less than impressed. We have dined here several times. This was not up to par by any means. Our party of was seated at a table which consisted of two smaller tables pushed together - fine EXCEPT that the tables were different heights and the people in the middle had to juggle. We pointed this out to the hostess/server and she just shrugged and said "I don't know why they did it this way." No attempt to re-seat or make better.
Server did not take ladies' orders first. No attempt at social etiquette.
Dirty plates sat "forever" to get cleared. We finally had to ask.

My family and I went here the day after Thanksgiving. We made a reservation on OpenTable two hours ahead of time. When we got there, they sat us right away, even though they were very busy on a Friday night. The food was amazing, our waiter unbelievably friendly and genuine and tons of wine and food options. Our glasses of wine took a little longer than normal to arrive to our table but the Manager came over and told us it was on them -- very thoughtful and great customer service. We will DEFINITELY be back.

Came here for a much deserved respite from Black Friday shopping. Unfortunately, so did a lot of people with small, noisy children. Now that I have teens this isn't the kind of place I'll go again. Our food was very average -- lots of salt and heavy sauces. If I came again I'd stick to pizza. Our server was fabulous. Next year we'll choose someplace else.

For years we have dined and enjoyed our meal at Palomino's in downtown Seattle the day after Thanksgiving. This time our meals were AWFUL. The pizza our daughter received was rubber! The Tomato Bisque soup was so spicy that it was not edible, I have no idea what the salad was served to me but it certainly was not as described as a Mediterranean salad and tasted horrible!
We were presented a Portobello soup as a replacement for the Tomato Bisque, but it too was

Amazing way to spend my thanksgiving .. I really liked the phone call prior to ask if I want to be in a child free zone. Its awesome to have the option. I arrived a little early but staff worked to get me a romantic table by the window without me requesting. Staff was excellent and kind.

My wife, brother and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at the Palomino. Prompt, friendly service and excellent food for a reasonable price. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and I would heartily recommend to my friends.

I have eaten here several times and always pleased with food and wine and excellent service. This visit was for Thanksgiving dinner and was a moderately priced option and outstanding service. I was offered a child free seating but opted for the regular dining room upon arrival--I did not realize the child free area was the bar area and the kitchen which we did not want. But, we were immediately seated in the regular dining room without a problem. I also like the free parking after 5PM which can't be found elsewhere.

Good Food, great service! My brother was visiting from another country and this was his first thanksgiving meal and thanksgiving experience! He will visit again in maybe 2 years and I know where to take him for good food. Thanks Palomino!

All of the food was unusually salty. We did have the prime rib which was salt encrusted and so we expected it to be salty. I would not order prime rib prepared that way in the future. My family said the pasta dish and the artichoke dip seemed too salty as well. We were looking forward to eating out for Thanksgiving. The service was so fast, which is great in some ways, but on a special occasion, it seemed too fast. We joked that we could have eaten at fast food in the same amount of time. It lacked some graciousness for a special occasion, but I understand the desire to move as many people as possible through. At least we didn't have dishes to clean up. We still enjoyed being there. It's a lovely place and the service is very nice.

The food was good but the service was terrible. There was literally one other person in the restaurant and it took almost 45 minutes to get our food. Our waiter was not attentive, kept disappearing for long time periods (Seahawk game was on) and another waitress going by took care of several missing items. Very disappointing.

Visiting from out of town with 2 friends we were all very pleased with our meals, wine selection, friendly service and felt the cost was very reasonable. Convenient downtown location. Will definitely recommend to friends and return!

It's been awhile since I've dined at Palomino, and I was really looking forward to it. Sadly, my meal was not quite as good as I experienced many times in the past. My maple chicken salad was over-dressed, as was one of my friends' prawns and quinoa bowl. Each had a puddle of dressing in the bottom. Perhaps it was just a busy Saturday evening, but we didn't get the attention from our server I've experienced in the past either. We had to flag another server down to ask for more bread for the table. While on the whole, we enjoyed most of our meal, I can't say that it was the 5-star experience I've come to expect at Palomino.

When we booked the reservation, we requested a quieter table. And we got it. When we were seated, I mentioned my Aunt's birthday. The hostess promptly delivered a nice card. Jordan V, our server was great about splitting one of our meals. The sausage and mushroom pizza was hit, as was the chicken and pasta. Jordan was right on top of our needs and provided great service. After our plates were cleared, he served my aunt a delicious Crème Brule. It was a wonderful evening, with great food and fantastic service.

So disappointed because I have been to Palominos several times and it has always been good. My lunch was very salty and I had a touch of food poisoning within 4 1/2 hours. Wish it weren't so but it was and my friend from out of town also found her panini salty and the mushroom soup not very tasty. I was a bit embarrassed since I had recommended Plaominos for our meeting after 5 years:(

Our go to place for a meal before a show. Service is excellent. The food is good and the right size portion wise. We love any of the pastas. As for desert? You have to have the doughnuts, holes actually. Don't shy away because they are gluten free. Taste great!
