Palomino - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately this was a poor performance by Palomino. The service was lacking - had to ask for bread, had to ask to have water glasses refilled - not good.
Food also disappointing - had a snapper special & fish was not good ( tasted borderline bad - like it has been around a day or two to long)....
This was a repeat visit for my birthday, we went last year and a great time. The staff was friendly and in fact we had the same waiter we had last year and after a brief conversation he remembered my group. I had the Tomohawk Chop and it was perfect. A couple of my guests had the seafood pasta and said it good as well. It may become my go to each year I am in Seattle for my birthday.
Service was great!
We had a fast meal due to traffic headaches and theater tickets - and our server and team did a great job with providing helpful suggestions and quick service. We had an appetizer and tasty meals - and even got to the theater a little early! THANKS to Palomino!
Great place to go before a show at 5th Avenue Theatre (show your tickets for 10% off too!). We had a 5:15pm reservation and were seated right away and we're done in plenty of time for our 7pm show. Service was good but we did wait a long time for gluten free bread for the table, and food was delicious. Everyone in our party was happy with the amount of variety the restaurant offered for food and drinks. It was a bit noisy at times being seated near the kitchen as multiple carts and items being dropped could be heard at times.
We have been to Palomino many times and ALWAYS the food is great as is the service. My only criticism is about the ladies restroom. It is very difficult to see if any of the stalls is in use. You have to either knock on the door or squat down to see feet. The squatting is quite difficult in a narrow space. Maybe having those vacant/occupied signs that show when you lock would help
The service was, once again, stellar but the food on this 2nd visit was not as amazing. My husband's dish was listed as spicy but was in fact bland enough that even my 0-star taste buds didn't detect anything. They removed it from our bill which was appreciated but two of the other three dishes were also missing something that made them so delightful on our first visit. The scallop dish was the only one that was as delicious as all three meals on our first visit. This visit was also marred by an extra loud table seated after we were which made conversation challenging. We'll definitely be back for a third try since the first visit (also on a Saturday pre-Theatre day) was so delicious so we can see whether our first visit or our second visit is more typical.
Had dinner with friends prior to a concert. Server was very attentive to our schedule and had everything coordinated beautifully. Food was very salad ( the Chop Salad was EXCELLENT ). Walked 4 blocks to the concert and sat down 5 minutes before it started. Total dining time was probably 70 minutes from seated to leaving, and yet we never felt rushed at all.
I love Palomino. I've brought my 13 year old grand daughter here as well as friends for dinner. Its a beautiful restaurant, service is excellent, the food is really good and reasonable for a nice place in Seattle. I've been there twice in the past couple weeks.
The food was excellent and very tasty. I had the pepperoni pizza and was extremely satisfied with it. The insalata of mixed greens was a good accompaniment to the pizza. I appreciated that the server made sure to keep our water glasses filled, since two of us only ordered water to drink. The whole experience was very enjoyable. I'm glad to keep this as a go-to place for birthdays and other special occasions.
I've been to the Palomino in other locations, and I've thought it was very good. In fact, that's why I chose it. I wasn't impressed by anything here. It felt like a chain restaurant, but not an upscale chain. My son had mashed potatoes with his meal. They were almost cold. When we complained, they replaced them immediately with potatoes that were luke warm at best.
We traveled to Seattle from Florida for our first vacation day. Phillip did a great job, very friendly. The food was good. My wife had the short rib and commented how good it was. I had the Chicken Parmesan it was good, the pasta was a bit over cooked. We were early for dinner due to our travel but the restaurant was very accommodating.
We made our reservation for a Sunday at 12:30PM to make sure that we had a bite and drink before the 5th Avenue show. We were not sure how busy the restaurant would be. We arrived 5 minutes early but were seated immediately. Very nice seats! We were very pleased to see that the menu clearly designated gluten free options. We ordered drinks and three appetizers. The drinks came right away. The food came out one dish at a time which was perfectly okay with us and was very tasty. One thing that we noticed and commented to each other on was that the food, every plate, was cooler than we expected; not cold, but it wasn't hot, as if it sat for a bit before it was brought out. Overall an okay experience. We made our show without delay.
The food was very good. However, most was cold. We ordered the crispy caprese which was great but was cool- had it been hot it would've been amazing. We ordered two pizzas and a pasta dish and shared among three of us. Good portion sizes, good food, okay service.
Our server was personable and knowledgeable, dinks were excellent and reasonably priced. I had the Snapper special with Prawns on a bed of succotash which was great, my wife's scallops were expertly prepared although the risotto which came with it was a bit strong on the lemon.
Overall I definitely recommend Palomino!
Came here before a show at 5th Avenue. It was packed, service was slow. Drinks came after salad. Steak was over seasoned (salty). Would usually have dessert and a second drink, but was concerned that we would miss the show given how the service was slow already for the prior courses/drinks.
This is a great spot for pre-5th Avenue Theater dining. They validate your parking in the City Center garage. The food is consistently good. They can be pretty busy at times, and service can be a little slow (frankly, they are slammed!) ... but plan your reservation for 6:00 for a 7:30 curtain and you'll be fine.
