Lots of nice, fresh ingredients and the prices are quite reasonable. There was some screaming baby noise because it was Mother's Day, but what can you do? It was one of the few places the family has eaten recently where my 82-year-old father could hear well enough to be part of the conversation. Lovely setting. Unbeatable for a relaxing meal at a reasonable price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Palettes! InsteadWe love Palettes! Instead of having lunch selections we went with brunch and the omelets were great!

I think something went wrong in the kitchen because I have never had this problem before. We all had the pre-fix meal (mostly the new mexican menu and it was great!!!) so I expected it to take a long time but we were in there almost 3 hours we almost didnt have time for the O'Keefe exhibit But all in all it was a good day. Good food and great exhibit.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch before visiting the MuseumMy friend and I came in right at opening for Sunday brunch before going to the DAM. We were their first table and so it was very quiet, yet they had some great music playing (Mumford and Sons and the Lumineers that I recall). It took a little while for the drinks to come out but after that the service was quick and attentive. I assume they were mixing up a batch of mimosas and getting the bar set up or something since we were the first table. Food was fantastic and we really enjoyed starting our day at the museum with brunch at Palattes!! I'll be back for sure, especially for lunch when they open the patio for the season. Great spot!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure to dineAlways a pleasure to dine at Palettes--we love it!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is very niceThe restaurant is very nice with great food and excellent service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYou are the best!We dine here often; love the food, the staff, and the ambiance.

With the great windows we could watch the world walking by. The food was terrific; the service was a little spotty - wrong wine - not remembering who ordered what. Long times in between checking to see if there was anything we wanted.
This is a favorite place and will continue to be so - especially for lunch. Loved the special southwest menu in conjunction with the O'Keeffe exhibit although we didn't not order from it - too many other good choices.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe frequently combine a visitWe frequently combine a visit to the Denver Art Museum with a meal at Palettes. The food, ambiance, and service has consistently been excellent. Recently we have enjoyed the restaurant's themed menus with dishes inspired by special exhibits at the museum. Last Saturday, we were delayed in traffic. When we called to say we would be late, our table was kindly held for us. Palettes has become our favorite place to eat when we are in downtown Denver.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our lunch afterReally enjoyed our lunch after the art museum.
