Been here for dinner and for happy hour. Both menus are great; the happy hour gets you more bang for the buck though. It has a chic, yuppie feel to it that makes it extremely popular during happy hour. The outdoor area has a great view of the Bay Bridge. This place is quite possibly my favorite happy hour place in San Francisco.

We went with a group of family and friends of about 30 or so people. The service was excellent. The waitress was attentive and made sure we were enjoying our meal. Although the bar service was a bit slow, I would recommend this restaurant to my friends. The view is excellent and the prices are even better. In my opinion, the wait staff really seemed to enjoy their job and it showed in the service we received. I will be going back again!

My wife and I ate at Palomino on the evening of 12/8/07 and found the service slow and the food had way too much Garlic. The slow service was from the Bar of all places. We ordered two glasses of wine before we ordered food and did not get them until the main entree arrived. The waiter appologized several times and said the bar was backed up.

Went with my wife and 18 month old. We thought it would be a nice evening at a nice restaurant that may cater to kids since they advertised they had a kid's menu. We got there around 5:15 pm on a Saturday and were seated promptly. There were not many patrons and it was not even half full. One look at their kid's menu and you can tell someone did not put a lot of thought behind it. First, they charge $6.95 which is rather high for what they were offering kids. Secondly, there were misspelled words in the menu.
It took nearly an hour to get our food after we ordered! When we had asked the waiter about our food, he explained there were two large parties going on. Keep in mind that the restaurant looked half full at the time we ordered. Try to imagine what an 18 month old will start doing after an hour of no food strapped into a booster seat. Needless to say, neither my wife and I got to enjoy the food so I couldn't really tell you if it was good or bad. We were also never offered a mystery envelope with coupons for $$$ off our next visit, which was OK by me. My wife and I were just happy the meal was over and we can get out of there before 7:30 pm. We had no intentions of returning any time soon.

We along with what seems like everyone in SF received a $20 gift card in the mail. I've been here before for happy hour and have always had a nice time but never tried their food. We arrived and our waiter Ian was great and very knowledgeable on the menu. We were pleased with the appetizers and salads. I had the kobe ravioli which was ok, but i wouldn't order it again. My boyfriend had the mahi mahi with clams and it was a super boring dish. No sauce, not flavor just very bland. Probaby very healthy though but lacked any really exciting taste. I would go back for drinks and appetizers but would skip the main course. The restaurant is in a great location though and has a nice decor and atmosphere.

My husband I, with $20 gift card in hand, went to try this place out last night and were really disappointed. For a place in such a great location, the food shoud have been a lot better. He got the chicken parm, and I the capellini pomodoro, and we both agreed that better versions of both are availale at the Olive Garden. Everything was slick with oil and overly garlic-y. Not impressed at all.

We went on night of the $20. gift card expired and it was crowded, we were seated within 5 min.. Obviously none of the other reviewers had the waitress we did, her name is Molly and she was terrific, you'd never know she was extremely busy with a full restaurant, she was friendly, talkative, efficient and never acted like she was doing us a favor. My husband ordered the spaghetti w/Kobe beef meatballs and I ordered the Lobster ravioli, when she brought our food she apologized because the kitchen had made the Kobe beef ravioli for my husband, she said she would take if back if he wanted and he said no, he'd have the ravioli, she told us dessert would be on the house. The food was excellent, my husband had the warm pear bread pudding and it was very large and delicious, we didn't leave hungry, the portions were very generous.
I would have never gone to Palomino as we usually don't go way downtown to eat, but I'm glad they sent us the gift card and we definitely will go back. I was in awe of the view and I live here, I can imagine what tourists think. We will be repeat customers, I've already told a couple friends about Palomino.
If you read this review and want to try Palomino, ask to sit in Molly's area.
