    I’ve always enjoyed Paladar for both the food and the ambiance, but on this particular day, my husband and 2 kids were seated near the bar, and Varsity Blues was playing on multiple TV monitors above the bar. At one point there was a non-family friendly semi-nude strip club scene that my young kids were exposed to. I was very unhappy about it, but my family asked me not to make a stink about it. Paladar should refrain from showing movies at a family restaurant, and stick to sports channels, if they absolutely must show something on the TV.

    We were sat outside and never acknowledged for 15 minutes even though many servers walked past us. So, we left.

    Host was friendly. the restaurant was nice. Our table was ready on time. However it took a very long time for our server to make first contact. She was friendly and knowledgeable but she was again painfully slow at the end. After eating our main course - we asked twice for a dessert menu which was never brought and we were just presented with our check - this took 15 min - this was very disappointing since I had indicate on my reservation that this was a special event with two birthday at our table and then it took another 15-20 minutes for her to return to pick up our credit card and cash us out. The kids were so bored they left and stood outside. We eventually had to forego dessert entirely because we did not have time to go find another place to get dessert. Some of the food was great, some was poor. Fish taco were the winner. Shrimp and grits had good flavor but the presentation in the crock made it difficult to cut up the shrimp and grits at the bottom became overwhelmed with the sauce. Pork taco were hard to even finish eating due the overly sweet sauce - everyone at the table tried them and nobody liked or finished them.

    When eating at Paladar with a friend, my wife got a bowl there and loved it. She asked if we could go together for date night and I said sure. The ambience was better in the smaller right side room than at the bar, which had higher ceilings and was very loud. Very upbeat, chic, feminine energy. We aren’t drinkers but got an app — the guac — which was bland. She liked the plantain chips better than me, and it was a small portion. She got her bowl as before, and I got a steak and blue cheese salad. I should have ordered it without onions, as it was LOADED with them. The steak was good, lots of meat, but the dressing was bland and the blue cheese was hard to find. We even got dessert, the sweet potato donuts for her and the chocolate tart for me. Hers was better than mine — the tart is not something I would order again…tiny, weird texture and not flavorful. Overall I thought it was underwhelming for 85 dollars tip included. The waitress was nice though and maybe a sandwich would have been better. I’d give it another try but probably only if asked … the things we do for love! Overall 2/4 stars.
