Palomino has an interesting atmosphere, a bit retro maybe, and that might be deceiving at first. The place is actually much better than it looks, and I was surprised by the richness and variety of flavors from the very first bite. The staff is friendly, at times witty, and tries to work with you if there is a problem. All of the food I tried at dinner has left me pleasantly satisfied, in terms of both quality and quantity. Even if your order a simple entree, you won't be hungry at the end, and I think that is something I want and expect at a restaurant.
An exquisite restaurant to sit down, relax, and enjoy a fantastic meal. The chicken marsala, served with capellini pasta, has full-flavored mushrooms and a superb sauce on it. The Palomino burger, served with chorizo and cambozola cheese, is full of flavor. The prawn scampi has a lot of freshly cooked shrimp mixed in with cherry tomatoes and a lovely sauce, all served with capellini pasta. But the highlight of the restaurant is the pork loin, a beautiful cut of pork served with asparagus and homemade rich mashed potatoes, covered with a truly unforgettable sauce. Try the food here and you will want to come back.
