Palomino used to be a regular place to eat with a nice style and great food - a perfect spot for downtown eating. We hadn't been for a while and paid a return visit last week - rather disappointing. The decor itself does not appear to have been updated for a long time and is showing signs of wear and... More

I don't eat in this nice of a restaurant very often, so I forget how good well prepared food with excellent ingredients can really taste. My dinner was awesome. If I ever get my wife to this area I will definitely take her to enjoy the gluten-free options.

We had a large group for dinner, with the majority being happy with the shared appetizers and the dinners. The two guests that ordered steaks were disappointed with how under-cooked their meat was, but the staff did their best to make the dinners right.

I hadn't been to Palomino in years, but on a recent visit to my former hometown, I met a friend for dinner there. It is a beautiful restaurant, with broad windows so you can watch the vibrant downtown. Our service was excellent, although the entree came out too quickly after we'd ordered an appetizer, but it wasn't that busy on... More

Our waiter was snoody. We had to ask for silverware. We had to ask for a straw. We had to ask another waiter to go get our waiter so we could check out. It was a male waiter and we were in there at 1:15 today 12/30/16. We felt like we didn't exit. Food was good but over priced.

All bottle wines are 1/2 price on Wednesday. It was the perfect compliment to my Seafood paella and friends vegetarian pizza.. Our server, Conner was outstanding. The menu is broad and prices to fit most budgets. I try to visit every trip to Indy.

My wife and I met another couple for dinner at Palomino on a Saturday evening. Our reservation was at 7PM. We were seated very quickly even though we were five or so minutes late due to horrible parking in downtown Indy due to the weekend Colts game and a large convention. Unfortunately the evening went downhill reasonably quickly. I would... More

A very nice place to have real Italian pizza with very slim and crispy crust and original fresh tomato and free cheeses as well, as for the desert bread podding it's very special and must to have.
