Palomino - Seattle Ratings and Reviews

This was a first-time meeting get-together for me with my new supervisor. My supervisor chose the restaurant. We consistently had to request of several different servers to bring my supervisor a refreshing of her beverage over the time period we visited. At one point, it became embarrassing because of the numerous times she was promised a refilling without follow-through.
My meal was fine but I felt bad for her because she was impacted, recent car accident and couldn't get around well.

We used to have a Palomino in MN and I really liked it - so I was excited to see one right across the street from my hotel while in Seattle. Everything was top notch, right from the friendly host (who made excellent small talk while we were waiting for our party to collet), to the very accommodating waiter when my husband pulled up a drink recipe on his phone that wasn't on the menu, to the great food and ambience. I definitely recommend this for business meals, or a great date night!

I first experience Palomino when it first opened...late 80's, me thinks. At that time, I thought it was grand, and followed them to their franchise In Dallas, palomino grill. I still enjoy tne Dallas restaurant, but, the Seattle "mother ship" has turned into a pizza joint in a grand setting. Still filled w/chihuilly grand pieces, and wonderful lighting .Service was very good; menu papa johns. I'm a dinasour. Why can't I have a great restaurant w/ great service without crying babies and nursing mothers ? DINO IN DALLAS

Our family of 4 and were all disappointed. We waited 40 minutes after ordering before we received our food. The pizzas were not what we'd describe as Artisan Pizza at all. One of their pizza ovens was down that night and for some reason that translated to the restaurant only being able to offer 3 out of the 6 varieties of pizzas from their menu. We still don't understand what the lack of one pizza oven has anything to do with the ability to change toppings on a pizza?! We had all wanted pizza but with only the 3 most boring options for pizza available my husband and I ordered the braised short rib and chicken parmesan instead. Both of our dishes arrived barely warm. My dish came with a small portion of spaghetti which was dry and cold and stiff noodles like it had sat out far too long. My husbands short rib was also cold although he said the vegetables were good. We had waited far too long for our meal as it was so we ate what we could and just wanted to get out of there as it was also very noisy. Overall none of us would recommend this restaurant. Didn't realize at the time that this is part of a chain of Palomino restaurants.

Enjoyed our dinner at Palamino. Nice, unrushed, dining. An ecclectic group of diners which made people watching alot of fun. Appreciated the slight hints of healthy perspectives. The mashed cauliflower side dish was yummy with my salmon. Really nice dining venue.

Not impressed at all. This place boasts a romantic ambience, but you can't escape that you're inside a mall. We asked to be seated in a nice, quiet part of the establishment and instead, we were placed up front in a relatively noisy area. So, the staff do not care about your requests or don't read them. The food was just ok and the waiter assumed we were done with our appetizer, didn't ask, just picked it up off the table as he was walking by. Then we ordered pizza which was undercooked and not good. Won't be back.

Brie was our server, and she was fantastic! Helpful, friendly and thoroughly professional. The food was a good as we have come to expect. We have been going to Palomino for our anniversary for some years now, and we will happily continue this tradition.

Brought two young kids, and although this restaurant is a bit more fancy, it was also very kid-friendly! Had a great time sitting and overlooking the art in the foyer. The food was reasonably priced and the service was outstanding. Would highly recommend!

Great location close to The Paramount for a pre-show meal. My fiancé and I enjoyed some refreshing cocktails (Moscow Mule and a very special aged Old Fashioned) and devoured the apps (crispy and light calamari and burrata with prosciutto and asparagus that was delightful). Great service and wonderful mains (we both had the chicken parmesan as we were in need of Italian comfort food). Ran out of room for dessert but we'll be back!

The artisan pizza is excellent with a very thin crust. Recommend ordering one for two people and you may want an extra salad. The seafood Louie could have included more of a variety of seafood, although it was very good and filling.

Palomino is always on point with their food, I have never been disappointed. The service wasn't exceptional, but the bartender was fairly attentive... For only having two of us sitting in the entire bar area.

Our food was delicious! We had the steak and frites and the rotisserie pork chop with rosemary mashed potatoes and asparagus.. Doughnuts for dessert to dip in Nutella or mascarpone... So good! Our server was so sweet!

The scallops were over cooked and the breading was awful. My Lavender Cosmo was not great nor was the Rose Wine that was on the special sheet. My husbands steak frites and beer was fine. The Creme Brulle was the best part of the meal.

Our experience was excellent. We arrived a bit early but they seated us immediately. The waiter did a good job describing the specials and offering hints to make everything better and stopping by to see if we needed anything else but not often enough to be a pest. I had the cheese rotini with added Dungeness crab. It was spectacular. Two of us had the scallops. They were cooked to perfection- not to well to get rubbery or too little to be squishy. The bit of breading was a nice extra. One had the salmon which melted in you mouth. The sorbet was good too. Not too filling, just the right accent after as meal.

Palomino is one of my "go to" lunch places in downtown Seattle. A nice variety of salads and they have one of the California Cabernet Sauvigons I enjoy. It's rather restful if you go mid-afternoon and I never feel like they want me to hurry up. Relaxing and tasty.
