    Whether we come for special occasions (anniversary, birthdays, etc) or just spur-of-the-moment desire for dinner out, Palisade is our go-to spot. We are huge fans of the first seating fixed price menu because we happen to like dining in broad daylight (and we're that stereotypical age group!), but we've come for Happy Hour and lunch, too. We have never been disappointed. BTW, I have seen large family gatherings and small ones, too, and the openness of the seating and spectacular views let children enjoy meals during the earlier hours with the adults.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    With the exception of the shrimp, which were rubbery and overly chewy (probably due to over-cooking), the food was as good as could be expected in a buffet environment. The quality of the ingredients was excellent and the number of choices available was exceptional. The service was good but not outstanding. The servers were very friendly and helpful but there were too few for the number tables for which each was responsible. The physical aspects and location of the restaurant was absolutely amazing. Truly one of the most beautiful restaurants I and my party has ever visited. The over-all experience was well worth the expense.

    We were visiting Seattle for our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make it as romantic as possible! Each employee greeted us warmly and wishes us a happy honeymoon and the rose petals on the table were a lovely gesture! The wine list is incredible and the food was absolutely amazing! The scallops were the best I have ever had! We will definitely be coming back in the years to come!

Once again the experience was excellent, with great service and great tasting food. We will return again.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    My wife and I have been coming to Palisade for the last 20 years to celebrate our anniversary. We have always had good experiences. This time was a little different. When I booked through Open Table I specifically asked for a table on the window and not the "side-by-side" booths. After being seated 20 mins late we were taken to a side-by-side booth. Okay...fine. Then my prime rib came out and it was like chewing shoe leather. To the manager's credit he replaced it very fast and comped us the meal. That was great! Then, we ordered desert to go. We wanted the cheesecake...and when we got home we had some very melted ice cream. Needless to say, our 20th was disappointing. But we love Palisade and hope our next visit will be better.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    We are hosting several out-of-town guests during a conference and chose Palisade to provide the venue for a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. We were not disappointed. The view is worth coming for and the tasty offerings more than satisfied our hunger for NW cuisine. Our guests were mesmerized by the view of Mount Rainier framed in the skyline of Seattle and the boat harbor as we savored everything from oysters on the half shell to cedar-planked salmon to a variety of tasty desserts. A definitely wonderful evening.

    The service is always excellent- we have celebrated our anniversary at Palisades for many years- always going for dinner. There is SOMEONE around all the time if we have a request and can't find our waiter. Every waiter/waitress/busperson is very "polished". The food was excellent- like the new menu. The ambience of the restaurant is certainly spectacular.

    We celebrated our 10th anniversary at Palisade, not having dined here since our engagement. The service is impeccable, and the food delicious. I especially appreciated the acknowledgement and attention to our anniversary, from our greeting at the front desk, accommodation of my booth request, and rose petals and a card on our table to the server's congratulations and conversation and the festive candle in our dessert. We will be back!

    We have eaten at Palisades a number of times but this last time was not nearly as enjoyable. The lobster, crab dip was outstanding, the salmon on the trio plate was good, the scallops were terrible, the prawns stuffed with crab were tough and tasteless, a huge disappointment considering how pricey the entrees are. Overall if we had not eaten a great brunch previously and had other good dinners we would not return.

    This was my first visit. The two of us were seated at a nice table with a great view. We had Alaskan Salmon and rib eye, sushi and crab cake appetizers, and dessert. All of the food was great. Dessert was good. Price was reasonable $136 not including wine. The wine list was good. Prices ranged from 50-500 per bottle. Service was excellent and the wait staff was prompt but let is be, they didn't hover. A new favorite restaurant.

    If you're looking for a "can't miss" dining experience for a special occasion, out-of-town guests, or just you and yours, then Palisade is that place. We had not been there since the interior remodel and found the look and feel better than expected -- everything from the color choices to the more comfortable chair really enhanced our leisurely brunch experience. As for the food, well it continues to earn all the accolades that get heaped upon it. And I challenge you to find fresher crab legs and oysters on the half shell anywhere.

    We had a beautiful table right by the windows, overlooking the marina. Our server, Joseph G., was fantastic and his wine memory was just as great. The only thing I would suggest not ordering is the "king crab legs" as an add on. It was only one leg and very small for $25. The lobster crab bisque was outstanding!
