Beautiful view of the bay. Don't expect huge portions. This place is a great place to go on date. Dimmed lights and casual dining atmosphere makes it a good place to go to.

Palomino has a great location right by the MUNI where you can see the Bay Bridge. This place is known for having a great happy hour with half price appetizers, but I have only come after happy hour. I had their prosciutto pizza, which is a delicious thin crust pizza. I could finish the entire pizza and not be completely full. Palomino has a great outdoor area to sit and chat, but this also means that service is a little slower. The food is reasonably priced for a nicer restaurant, but it is made up for because of its great location. My tip is to make sure to come during happy hour (4-6).

I've come to this place twice: once on a date, and once for lunch with my then-boss. I really enjoyed Palomino both times. The service is great and the food is really tasty. I never know what to order but am always really happy with what I get. A friend tipped me off that they have a great happy hour-- I'm dying to check it out!

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

This is definitely a good place to have a business lunch. Service and food are great! Take advantage of the lunch specials. They recently added the chopchop salad as an option to be part of the special. I guess a lot of people ask for

I was on my way to the baseball game when I stopped off at Palomino for a beer and grub. I saw they had a pizza special. I was totally floored when the pizza was perfection. Very thin (I love thin crust pizza) and perfectly spiced.

Took my mom there for mothers day. Not at all impressed. The waiter seemed like he did not want to be there. Didn't advise us of available appetizers, until we asked.

I had the steak and eggs...the steak was rather tough.

This is a great spot to take out of towners. It features fresh Cali cuisine, is right on the Waterfront, and the tables are nicely spaced apart. The appetizers are the best things on the menu so better to get a bunch of those.

A nice selection of draft beer, yummy appetizers, and a great iron grill turkey sand. The food is pretty good, the view is great. Sit on the patio on a sunny day and indulge in some hot crab dip. A nice alternative to momo's and gordon

Every aspect of this place has its ups and downs.

The food: Some, like the pizzetas and the mussels are pretty solid bar food, especially for the financial district. The gorgonzola slathered fries make me gag.

Editorial from

Bustling Palomino, in the beautiful brick Hills Brothers Plaza, affords diners a fantastic view of the Bay Bridge. The straightforward California menu revolves around the wood-burning oven: cracker-thin pizza crusts, spit-roasted chicken,…
