Service 8/10 attentive waiter.
Food flavor 8/10 lots mesquite.
Decor 7/10 bland.
Price 8/10 reasonable for what you get.

Quality 5/10 (falsely advertise Ribeye Prime grade but its more like an average Choice grade)

I challange you to ask the waiter to bring you the raw ribeye your about to eat and check out its marbling.

I was dissapointed because i was expecting marbeling according to a Prime grade as advertised in their menu.

I did talked to manager but he argued that is what they get from their supplier Rancho 17.

Craft beer is limited to 4 options (no ipa), wine list is limited to some good options but a bit over priced than other restaurants.

May give it another try in a couple of months hopefuly they will get better.

I ate here 3 times while at a conference and based at a hotel nearby.

The tuna was excellent quality as were the salads - the brownie cheesecake was not worth having. Perhaps their steaks are the best thing on their menu from the testimony of other reviews but i can’t confirm this.

When we came in for a business meeting it was hard to persuade them to turn the music down a bit in the area we were seated. It’s a sports bar vibe at certain times of day (even when fairly empty) and they don’t seem to want to accommodate customers who want to hear each other talk. It took ages for them to sort out our bill that time as well - about 20 minutes or more - and whereas on one occasion they were happy to split the bill this was not possible the second visit.

We had a fabulous meal that was one of the packages for a large family. All the meat was perfectly cooked and had great accompaniments. Love it.

Palomino's is located near the Rio district which close to shopping malls and hotels. We were staying at the Hotel Lucerna so we decided to eat here. There is ample parking in an underground lot and there is also an outdoor lounge and bar area. The main restaurant is elegant and traditional. There are many tables for private parties as well as not large groups. They offer a wide selections of meats, side dishes, salads, wines and desserts. There were two of us and we shared the Palomino Platter with included a very generous portion of Arrachera (the best in Sonora Steaks), two beef ribs, tripitas de leche (grilled cow utters) salad, tortillas, salsa, beans and two coyotes del pueblo for dessert. The service was fast and very attentive and we had three waiters waiting on us. The restaurant is clean and modern. I would highly recommend Palpmino's for a fantastic dinner.

This was a knock out steak. With all the side dishes it's difficult not to hurt your before you finish. Definitely a up beat restaurant so bring a good credit card.
