Overall good. I've had a lot of trouble finding a consistently good and nice restaurant in Pittsburgh. I have now gone to Palomino's 3 times and found all to be an enjoyable experience. The ambience is on the trendy side, but warm. The menu is pretty extensive, as well as the drinks and wine menu. Yes, this restaurant is definitely on the expensive side. However, the service has always been adequate, the food very good, and the overall dining experience very good as well. Other restaurants may have a more prestigious reputation, but I find that the quality of the food is often compromised. I therefore think that this restaurant is worth a try, especially for a nice occassion dinner and consistent quality.
what happened to the food?!.
I went to Palomino shortly after it opened, and really enjoyed it. I went back last week (Jan '02) and was very disappointed. The lettuce in my salad was wilted and brown around the edges, the salad was drowned in dressing (perhaps to diguise the lettuce?) and the crab cakes were overdone (burnt on the bottom and sides) and dried out to the point of being largely inedible. Definitely not worth the money...
Still loved the atmosphere, but the food was awful!
expensive, but worth it. While my wife and I were visiting from Southern Cal for x-mas, we took my inlaws here last Friday. Definitely expensive. And the staff had a lot of trouble finding the bottle of wine we ordered. However, the service was excellent otherwise. The lobster was costly ($44) but great, as were the stuffed shrimp. And at the end of the meal the manager was apologetic about the problems finding our wine bottle, and comped our desserts. Ambiance was nice. The views were better at the Le Mont the next night, but the food was not, and the service was comparable.
I took the Pepsi challenge.. They actually seem to care about their customers. I'm a tried & true Diet Coke drinker, but they only stock Pepsi. The server actually had someone run out & get me a Diet Coke. Everyother restaurant I've ever been in said "sorry, we only carry Pepsi." A staff that will go out of their way to accomodate a customer - rare & impressive. By the way, the food was exceptional, the ambience upbeat & energetic, the management visable, and the drinks (beside the Coke) were creative & inspired. Will be my first choice for a long time to come.
