Artichoke crab dip gave my wife and I indigestion. Second time in a row. We were burping up crab dip 5 hours afterward. Chicken parm was too spicey. That led to upset stomachs for both my wife and I all night long. In the future, we will look for someplace that has better food that does not upset our stomachs. Kids in baseball hats on backwards and tee shirts were a distraction. Is this upscale or just a glorified McDonalds with high prices?

I am a long-time fan and diner & lunch eater. I'd not been in a while lately. Server informed us the menu had just recently changed. It had a few of our old time faves, others were missing. The new items looked good, some creative. I LOVE their thin crust pizzas, but the variety has changed again. None really suited my tastes. I almost wish they would offer a "create your own" option with a list of the toppings offered, I love their ingredients and feel anyone could make a perfect "match" to their tastes, with the toppings offered now, just in the combos individuals would create!

Restaurant is good. Menu is Okay. House Specialties Price never mentioned during the conversation neither on the special menu. Appreciate if the menu and pricing is available upfront to choose the perfect option.

It was my first time there. I took my husband for Father's Day and the best Bruschetta's ever, the main entrée had also a great presentation and taste. The waiter was friendly and service was great. A great experience overall and you definitely won me as a customer because I will be back for sure.

Our waiter, Michael did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome and answering our questions about the menu. We wanted a relaxed dinner without being rushed yet, things being served on time so we were on time for the theatre. He was very pleasant and made sure everything happened perfectly. We would request him to serve us in the future. Great job!

My sister and I dine here often, as it is convenient to the 5th ave theater. and downtown events. One of the best parts of our evening that night was actually having a chance to talk to a previous restaurant manager, Paul, who was there with a another group . That guy is uber friendly and he does a lot to make everyone feel comfortable and happy. All the wait staff and hosts are terrific and do their best to provide a high level of service.

Great spot. Go there often before the theater. Was very noisy this trip - very hard for older guests to hear on this trip. The food is always excellent.

We dine here before every show we attend at the 5th Avenue Theatre. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. We progress from appetizers to dessert and are always finished with the bill paid by show time.

We frequently dine at Palomino before attending shows at the Fifth Avenue Theatre. There are always good selections for reasonable prices. The service is super, and there are many interesting wine varieties available. Looking forward to seeing what the new menu brings. I hope it is more of the same.

I normally like the food at Palomino. But 2 of the last 3 times I've eaten here, I've eaten Pork Chops. Overcooked, tough and cold. I guess, don't order the pork!

Love those lavender cosmos. Palomino is a perfect spot to eat before going to one of the theatres, Paramount or 5th Avenue.
We love this restaurant!
The food and service are always excellent! We love coming here!
Usually great, but fell far short this time.
They were out of shrimp, a key component of several entrees, including the enticing special we both had our eyes on. Our alternate entrees were not only disappointing, they also had sand in the muscles and clams. Even the air conditioning was lackluster on this supremely steamy afternoon. Further adding to our dismay, the wine list was completely devoid of roses, our go-go vino on a hot day.

Service was great! I gave "Ambiance" only 3 stars because the restaurant was too warm. There were only a few patrons, but the open kitchen plan allowed too much heat to escape into the dining spaces.

Excellent with food allergies
We love eating at Palomino; the food is always exquisite and the chefs do a fantastic job of food allergy safety. It's our family's go-to place for special occasion dining.

Have been to Palomino for lunch several times and was happy with my meals. This time we went for dinner and were very surprised at the below average quality of the dishes. The salad seemed to be from a bag with little specks of goat cheese mixed in. My husband and I both had fish dishes. Both of the fish fillets were dry and overcooked and were accompanied by very lackluster sides with little color or flavor. I have had better food at a culinary training school. The manager was extremely apologetic and offered to prepare the fish again. We did receive a much better cooked fish. However, this time the fish was accompanied by undercooked asparagus and potatoes. The restaurant was emptying out. Did not look as busy as I have usually experienced it. As I said, I previously enjoyed the food at Palomino. This dinner was so inedible and in addition drawn out that I am not sure I want to try the restaurant again. The manager and server did try to make things right and I do appreciate the effort.
Service and attention to detail was outstanding, as was the food. We came for a special birthday lunch and the waitstaff went above and beyond with a special creme brulee for the 84th birthday girl, candle and all. The occasion couldn't have been more perfect! Thank you so much.
Never a disappointment:)

Great place prior to 5th Ave Theater
Food and service was great, and very convenient for the show at 5th Ave Theater,
Our meal at the Palomino was quite good! The service was great! The location is excellent, especially if you're going to a play or musical where timing is everything. It's located close to two of the best theaters in downtown Seattle. The servers always ask if this is a special occasion or are you going to the theater/event. Overall we were very happy with our dining experience.
Going to a show and need a spot for dinner beforehand? Predictable quality and value at Palomino. The regular menu always has options no matter who is joining you and the chef specials generally have a combination of flavors that are unique and tasty. Never disappointments and always welcoming. Thanks, Palomino.
My son and I enjoyed dinner before going to a show at the Paramount Theater. We had excellent service and our food was really good! Very enjoyable dinner and great value!
The place was OK but just that. I order calamari which was fried until it was like leather. They happily replaced it was a salad which was OK. For an entree I ordered a rib eye off the specials menu. Again, it was OK. Nothing to complain about but nothing special either. I tried to order a shot of tequila but the select was so poor I settled for Jameson which was OK. Overall the place was simply OK, nothing made it stand out and nothing made me want to come back.

This restaurant is a wonderful place to go before attending a movie or theatre performance in downtown Seattle. We get consistently great service, and the food is always excellent. Free parking with validation as well! It's a very lively, vibrant place.

chop chop salad
Two of our party had this salad because it's what we always have since it's so wonderful. Yesterday it wasn't wonderful. There was too much greenery which was kind of limp and all the good things you used to put in the salad weren't there. We both were greatly disappointed. I brought part of mine home as I always do and I didn't eat it as it there was nothing in it but limper (to be expected and usually not a problem for me) and there was nothing else there. We were both sorry we ordered it!

Palamino just became favorite restaurant of ours. The pork loin was amazing!!! The paella was good but didn't have enough crab. It was fixed when the waitress brought more. Service was great as always and will be back to try more entrees.

A decent enough place for a meal but a very good place to go before a show at the 5th Avenue, convenient, will validate parking and even offer a discount on dinner with your show tickets. For that reason I would recommend it. Much better places in the area for just a meal however.
Great Service but Food Was Rushed...
Lovely restaurant, awesome service, but Food was not up to par. The" Caramelized " Brussel Sprouts were hard, barely cooked, and bitter. The Paella was a bland and watery. However the Steak Frites was cooked perfectly medium. To be fair they did stop by to ask how our meal was and we did not point these issues out. I'm sure they would of remade them as the staff was very nice.
