I visited Palomino once for dinner and three times for breakfast during my one week stay in Bellevue. Their food is tasty and well prepared, the service good and the restaurant atmosphere is nice and cozy. For dinner I tried their short ribs and for breakfast I tried eggs Benedict, sirloin steak and their cheddar omelette. All of the dishes... More

Happened in here tonight for a quick dinner. Wait staff very pleasant though there uniforms are some guys version of sexy. Food was very mediocre. I was surprised Westin in Bellevue would serve this kind of poor quality. Guess it explains why it was dead in there when I couldn't get in elsewhere. I would never recommend this place sorry...

I've loved their chop chop salad for years. I've noticed the portions are smaller (I always order a large now) and the prices have went up but it's still a favorite. TIP: Ask for extra dressing unless you like your salad dry. I always add more and it makes it so much better!

The Rigatoni Bolognese was excellent (as always). The Palomino Burger was also excellent (as always). The burger comes with fries. The first order of fries was cold and soggy. The replacement order was hot, but still somewhat soggy and chewy. No charge for the fires. Mr. Wong was the previous manager. He was always very friendly and ran a tight... More

I am a food and drink snob, and for some reason I like this place, even though it would not technically qualify as a preferred destination for someone like me. I think it's the location; easy to get to the movies and Bell Square, plus the cauliflower. You should try the cauliflower. Their other small plates are reliably good, as... More

We enjoyed an early dinner on a Thursday night. It was pretty busy with several large parties. Obviously a favorite spot for business travelers. We sat at a nice booth for two and enjoyed a nice bottle of house red that was reasonably priced. We started with calamari. The breading was light and the serving was quite large. I had... More

They had a very nice breakfast mid range in price. They do have egg whites as well. Omelet was great. A few dollars cheaper than eating at the buffet in the Westin. Make reservations for in the evening early. All that area books up quick.

They are not known for their pizza, but it happens to be one of my favorites. Palomino is a great place to break from shopping in Bellevue Square... Centrally located in the heart of Bellevue, directly across from the mall. Good for business or pleasure.

Met some friends here for a New Year breakfast and was a bit disappointed. There were about 5 or 6 breakfast options and the rest of the menu was salads and lunch/late day items. Was hoping for a more festive menu for a New Year's Day. They did have a Bloody Mary bar as you entered which was cool. Each... More
