Palomino - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
The food was not great; typical touristy Italian food. The bruschetta was not made with fresh tomatoes and the entrees specifically the Parmesan chicken did not really have flavor. I will say that the service is excellent and our waitress was very nice and friendly.
The ambiance and location were great. The food was just so-so. For pasta, it was extremely overpriced and the marinara sauce was unnecessarily spicy. True Italians do not put red pepper flakes in marinara.
I would say that for service, location, and ambiance, they get an A. For quality and value, they get a C.
Our first visit. We were promptly seated and a very attentive waiter gave us a warm greeting. The menu is filled with many options. We chose the STEEL HEAD daily special for our entrees and started with the fried mozzarella cheese appetizer.The appetizer was very good and the entree was excellent.We chose a Washington State Merlot and it was excellent. Dessert was mint mud pie gelato, perfection. An outstanding meal. We will be regulars for this restaurant.
Really good food. All diners agreed and we were tasting each other's because it was so good. Many flavors, beautifully presented but pretty pricey. I guess higher prices are to be expected in downtown Seattle but $19 for lettuce and chicken seems high to me. It was good salad, dressing and condiments but still!
Come for the food. Really great menu. Not huge but everything is well prepared. A few classic meals but most things are pretty innovative and worth trying out.
The place is hopping busy so don't come if you want someplace quiet and charming. This ain't it. But its really vibrant and the people watching is terrific. if you are going to the theater, plan ahead and get their early (because lots of people do this). The staff will do their best to get you out on time (they even asked!).
The bar seemed super busy and popular, with lots of bar seating for couples or small groups. Probably a good place to meet people and socialize.
We were able to split the Seafood Louie and Crispy Caprese appetizer. Both were wonderful. We especially enjoyed the Crispy Caprese with the pesto, tomato jam, and breaded mozzarella. It was a wonderfulrful blend of flavors. For dessert we chose the Limoncello Cake and Sugar Donuts. Both were to die for. The donuts were made to order and the warm Nutella and raspberry sauce made it a very decadent dessert. We will definitely be back.
Great booth seats, excellent service, tasty food! The calamari appetizer was very good. The bread with marinara was excellent as always and so hard not to eat all of it! My scallop entree with risotto was also very tasty. The bar was packed and reservations were necessary. Great pre-theater dinner.
The service is always excellent at Palomino Seattle. They have changed their menu and do not offer any wild fish. I'm a veggie who eats fish so there were almost no options with protein. To maintain their reputation as a quality restaurant, I recommend they add a wild fish and tofu dish to the menu.
We were a party of 4. In the past, they have been generous with their bread and dipping sauce. Not any more, they didn't provide bread until we requested it and then they only brought out a partial loaf containing 4 small pieces, same size given to a table of 2.
I still gave Palomino Seattle a great rating because they are a high quality restaurant and hopefully our next visit will be better.
