Palomino - Seattle Ratings and Reviews

We had a reservation, and were sat at our table on time. This was a business lunch, so our party all ordered fairly quickly. 50 min later we were served FROZEN bread and another 20-30 min later were served our entree's, waiting about an hour and a half for food.
The waitress offered no apology, discount or explanation.

Well, we were seated very quickly which is always grand during the lunch hour, but after we were given are drink order, no one came to take our order. My friend finally was able to flag someone down just to take our lunch order! Now this was at 12:41pm! And we were seated at noon! So by the time we got our food, we couldn't eat it because we had to be back at work. So over all, I don't think I will go there again, because that was outrageous!! And even though the food we had to get to go, was delicious, forty minutes and no one comes to your table is mind blowing!

When you have a complicated order and your server doesn't take notes, it's a red flag. When your order is delivered and it's not what you asked for, it's a problem. When your order is finally delivered and you don't like it, your server should go out of their way to take care of it - ie. you shouldn't have to pay for it. Sadly, poor service and poor food seals the deal for Palomino. There are plenty of dining options downtown with better food, better service and better prices.

I had the Fettuccine Frutti De Mare, which tasted good, but I expected more seafood than 3 prawns, 1 scallop and barely a forkful of smoked salmon. Another person in our party had the lamb special and was not particularly impressed.
On the other hand, our waiter was attentive and the ambiance of Palomino almost made up for a somewhat disappointing meal.

This visit, like our others, was very nice. We were seated quickly and the Staff was very friendly and courteous. The food was excellent as was the Wine selection. We will return here whenever we are out in the City.

I am a fan of RUI facilities. I like that they offer a wide range of choices and generally have comfortable and cozy environments. This night was New Year's eve. I should have assumed there would be a abbreviated menu, but I didn't and was left with choosing between a couple items I wouldn't normally order. The food was OK, but not holiday fare. I will go back because I like what they normally have on their menu. The place was not busy, but the service was on and off. Overall good experience.

The food was good. The wait was not too long this time compared to our last work lunch. My co-worker ordered a pasta and she received it with peas. She does not like peas and she asked the waiter if the menu listed peas under the item and he said yes. She let it go thinking it was her fault but on her way out she checked the menu and it did not say that the dish had peas. She spent the entire hour picking peas out of her dish because she really does NOT like them. We were disappointed that the waiter would just lie and not double check the menu before making her feel like she did not fully review the menu. Other than that, everything was ok. We just wished that we knew the peas were not listed so she could fully enjoy her meal like we could.

It took awhile for our food to come. We had several different waitstaff, so not really sure who was in charge of our table. Did not get refills on our drinks. It was crowded due to the theatre business and extremely loud.

Our food and service was excellent! Our waiter Chriss was excellent in catering to all of our needs in a very timely fashion. Service has improved significantly since our last visit to this restaurant and the food is much better. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone who is seeking a place for fine dining.

It took 15 min to have the waiter acknowledge us, it took 45 min for our food which was cold and the only dish that was hot was the one they forgot to make. This was my 3 visit within a week. Thank God the 1st two were great, because the last was absolutely terrible.

The guy at the front who assigns tables does not seem to know what he is doing. While we had reservation for two made days in advance he seated us at possibly the worst table in the dark corner next to the coat rack with people bumping into us, while for another couple with no reservation he cleared a large booth that normally seats four.

Food was OK. It took too long to get served. From the time we ordered until it came to the table was over half an hour. Some of the pasta was dry. Didn't get bread when we ordered. It showed up after we had been seated for 25 minutes. Should have been delivered sooner, especially with the delay in getting dinner served.

This was a quick walk and great place for late night dinner after a play at ACT theatre. All entrees were very good and not too pricey. The Crab-artichoke dip was fresh and tasty. Fun atmosphere--not too casual, not too stuffy. I would go again for sure.

The food was not good. The service was slow. She was kind, but not attentive. The drinks from the bar were not drinkable. We told her how bad the calamari was and she comped it, which was nice. I will not be back. My kids age 7 and 9 did not like it either.

My family has eaten at the Palomino for years. This was a special birthday celebration for my grandson, there were eight of us. We picked this restaurant because it was close to the 5th Avenue where we were going and had a good selection for our 4 and 7 year old as well as adults. Our servicer was not attentive, we waited a long time for service, our food was cold and I returned my because it was cold and not good. No one got hot food. We gave ourselves plenty of time for dinner but didn't have time for coffee because service was so slow. I hate to say it but I can't recommend this restaurant and doubt we will be back.

I am a long time fan of Palomino but this lunch was not up to the standard I am used to. I ordered something from the special sheet, polenta, shrimp and chorizo and it tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp drying out. My daughter had a kids meal hamburger that was very very well done. A disappointing lunch.
