Fabulous food, good server. So glad we went early. Had tickets to a 6:30 show, reservation at 3:15... we left at 5:30. They were exceptionally busy. Server was very engaging, funny, and thankful we can early. The rigatoni bolognese had fabulous flavor, rigatoni could have been a bit more al dente. The limoncello cake was moist, flavorful and honestly one of the best I have ever had outside of my own home. Mmmmmm.

Palominos was OUTSTANDING!!!!! Our Server, Ted, had such fine attention to detail, that nothing but a fantastic time was to be had from the get go.
I ordered a specially designed gluten free pasta dish that was PERFECT. Ted took my request to the kitchen and the result was a dish that really should be listen on the menu itself!! EXCELLENT!! Thank you Ted and Palominos for such a great time.

Palomino is one of my favorite places, love it here. But Saturday the food and the service was a disappointment. Must have been an off day, as my date's meal was overdone, and mine was undercooked and unimpressive. The bruschetta was great, and the wine was good, but the server was uninterested and uninformative. Definitely an off day for them.

We came to dinner after seeing a play at the Fifth Avenue. To be honest we were very disappointed since we specifically came for the Rigatoni Bolegnse and the recipe had been totally changed. We usually frequent Scotts Bar and Grill and that dish is our favorite. My boyfriend has been ordering it for over 20 years, it is his favorite! He did not even want to take his left overs home. The dish has lost it's pizazz....no dripping sausage juice and all the zesty
flavor it used to have. We will probably not visit Palomino again for that reason but were thankful for the ambiance and the kindly and attentive service and especially the unexpected waiving of the fee for our dinners!

We frequent this restaurant when attending a play at the 5th Avenue and have enjoyed it in the past. This time we had to wait an hour for our food and it was just ok (we miss the crab cakes!). We were told the kitchen was short-staffed that day but it didn't measure up to its usual standard. We love the convenience though and do plan to come again!

Our server Brianna was excellent! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and friendly.
Service with a smile. I would have preferred more than one scallop in my seafood, gluten free fettuccini and my husbands pasta was a bit too spicy, but all in all the food was very good. The service more than made up for the few flaws in our dinner. Thank you for a nice 27th anniversary dinner.

We love to start a shopping trip downtown with bubbles and a bite at Palomino. They did what they always do--deliver a very good meal at a good price with excellent service. The waiter was particularly amazing. She took a salad off my bill because they served it wrong and brought my wife creme brûlée with a candle on top for her birthday. Just a lot of fun! Thanks, Palomino! You did it again. See you at Christmas!

I love it here... Make a reservation and sit next to the open window that overlooks downstairs and outside...
The food is always good and the waitstaff friendly and attentive....*Happy hour is also great in the bar before a show!!!

We have been regular visitors to Palomino for several years, however this experience was different that any previous visit. We were a well dressed older couple. We were seated in the absolute very rear next to the employee side door, behind a loud party of 9 and served by "the new guy". To the credit of one of the managers, the offer to re-seat was made (after food was on the table) and they did comp a round of drinks. We will most likely visit again but I think we need to be much more vocal and explicit about seating preferences.

Super food & super service. Didn't catch our waitresses name, but she was so good we left just a under 30% tip! The scallops were the best I have ever had. And I have had many! Also it was prom night and that made it all the more fun to see these lovely young men & their beautiful dates.

We have eaten @ Palomino for years along with our friends, Alan & Jeri Gamblin. We love the atmosphere and the wait staff is always friendly. However on Friday we were all disappointed in our food. Jeff had the four cheese rigatoni-which was the best of our choices. I had the Chop Chop dinner salad. Very little cheese and meat, not enough salad dressing very blah- Our guests Jer & Alan both had the Rotisserie Chicken and requested normal mashed potatoes not the cauliflower. The chick was dry, the order was wrong. Our waitress was busy and the bus boy was slow. Our waitress was friendly and attentive except she got the order wrong.

The food was wonderful! The Brussel sprouts were an amazing appetizer, and the sandwich/salad combo was well worth the money. The service left room for improvement. Our server complete ignored that we were speaking to him a couple of times, and he was very inattentive.

We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday girl's steak was like jerky, the worst she had ever had. She had two bites, it was pricey. I have food allergies and the waiter wouldn't even check with the chef about options, so I settled for a lettuce salad. I asked for grilled chicken with that, never got it and asked for a cup of hot water, never got that either. Server was nice but not at all engaged with us as diners . . . . and the food was awful. We have eaten there several times and the quality of the food and experience have been declining. We will not go back. We had happy hour wine prior to dinner and that was a positive experience and a good value.

we came to celebrate my birthday. We were asked if it was a special occasion, and we told the person who seated us that it was my birthday. We were asked if we wanted bread and we said yes and then were not brought any bread. The server Darius was busy with a large table of patrons and seemed oblivious to us after that.

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!
