    Brussel sprout appetizer was amazing! Service was attentive and friendly. Some of the food took a bit too long coming out, but it was all very tasty. It's a bit loud in the dining room, but we didn't have any real issues having a good conversation.

    I had an order of calamari as an appetizer and for my meal I had the blackened fish tacos and the roasted Brussel sprouts. Everything was absolutely delicious. Peter was the best server ever!! He was attentive. He was knowledgeable about the food menu and the drinks. He checked on us to make sure everything was good and he offered suggestions when one of our group was kind of floundering with her decision.

    The atmosphere and food was great. The waitress nicely prompted us to get our orders in ahead of a large party so our orders would not be delayed. We got our order in quickly but it still took a while for our meals. Without prompting, a manager stopped by and offered dessert on-the-house to compensate for our wait. We accepted but after a very long wait for our bill, the dessert never came. We asked just to get the dessert to-go but we eventually just left without it after another long wait.

    We hadn’t been to Paladar for quite a while, and we were not disappointed! The quesadillas were delicious, the maple pulled pork scrumptious, and the sweet potato donuts delectable. Maybe it was the mimosas, but brunch was totally awesome. The service was outstanding. We will be back soon!!

    took almost 30 minutes for the server to greet us after she was talking to the table next to us regularly, told us we had to put our entire order in at one time, once we got our food we waited almost 30 minutes for silverware, had to go up to someone behind the bar to get silverware after our food was already cold, server only came to our table twice, couldn't get a manager to even visit the table to speak to us, absolutely horrible experience.

    Food was cold. Service was extremely slow. While I’m sure the food was tasty, it so long for us to get basically cold food, we didn’t ask for it to be heated. They comped us dessert and the 2 things we selected from a menu of 6 items we’re not available.

    This was the 2nd time/visit (Fall & now) that we ordered the white mango sangria & it came with bugs in it. The 1st time (last Fall) the mgr brought another & said he was not charging us. Both times we were told “the kitchen has some bugs”! This time the 2nd carafe also had bugs. Some were small like fruit flies & some were bigger. We sent it back & ordered wine. Mgr said nothing. Most of our food was barely warm (we were a party of 6). I ordered chimichurri steak medium rare but it came rarer that rare. Sent it back and while they said they recooked a new one, it too came back super rare. I had 2 bites & had it boxed up to cook at home because everyone else was finished eating. The mgr offered nothin. Didn’t comp our glasses of wine and didn’t offer dessert. Four of us live locally and agreed we wouldn’t be back.
