Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I took our grandson (16) for a "special treat" kind of dinner. I have eaten at Palisade from time to time over the past 15 years, and enjoyed myself on each visit. Our dinner on this occasion was good to very good, but not great. The food was mildly disappointing and pricey for the portion size. We shared an order of crab cakes as our appetizer, and they were very good. My wife and I had the "crab-stuffed colossal prawns", which turned out to be langoustine, and they were rather tough. The grilled veggies which accompanied the entree were somewhat dried out, but tasted OK. My grandson had the seafood platter (scallops, salmon, and prawns) which he liked. We shared the triple creme brulee for dessert, and it was excellent."

  • "Service wasn't that great and we got seated away from the windows while we requested window seating... Food was really good though and you're basically paying for the view. Not terrible but not sure I'm in a hurry to go back..."

  • "Excellent all around. Highly recommend. Cedar plank salmon, shrimp and scallops combo was great."

  • "We visited Palisade for our anniversary. We got there on a weeknight around 6pm and the restaurant was quiet. We were there for more than an hour and a half and by the time we left, the restaurant was much busier, but still romantic and beautiful. We mentioned that it was our anniversary, and when they sat us at our table, they had decorated it with rose petals and an anniversary card. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for. So delicious!"

  • "The Palisade is one of the finest restaurants. The servers are courteous, informed, and willing to suggest menu items. The food is fresh and expertly prepared, and there is not a bad view in the house. I always feel like it has been a memorable evening after dinning at Palisade."

  • "Girlfriend and I had dinner on a cloudy but nice summer Saturday night at 8:00. Reservations were at 8 and we were sat by 8:10 or so. Service was very good. View was outstanding overlooking the marina with countless sailboats and a great view of all of Seattle and Mt Rainier (weather permitting of course). Mt Rainier was partially enveloped in clouds the whole time, which actually added to the view. I would say this is a unique view of Seattle and the mountain as it's looking SSE towards both. The food was good to excellent. Caesar salad was different, but good. Sides for my prime rib were excellent, and the prime rib was good. She had the seafood trio, which was excellent. Scallops melt in your mouth. Overall very satisfied."

  • "The food was delicious, the setting was very nice but after the main course was served, the service went down, down hill. It took longer for us to order dessert, be served it and get the check than the whole rest of the meal combined (bottle of wine, soups, and entrees). I tried to get the server's attention many times as he walked past, but he kept his eyes down to avoid our gaze every time."

  • "Palisade offers an upscale experience with an amazing view of Elliot Bay with seafood to match. While I found the peccorino flat bread somewhat over-subtle, the meal as a whole was an excellent presentation of NW fusion cuisine."

  • "I had forgotten how quiet Palisades is! You can actually carry on a conversation. The scenery was beautiful, the food was excellent, the ambiance was enjoyable and the service was impeccable without being in the way. Good job!"

  • "Great food and the service was incredibly attentive. Red rose petals sprinkled on the table for a birthday was so nice. We chose to sit in the bar area and unfortunately sat under the mechanical piano and it was a bit too loud. The music is pleasant in other parts of the restaurant Will take note for next time!!! We also went to the brunch at Easter and the food was so good as well as so plentiful and dining here for brunch is a great adventure. I am glad new options show up on the lunch menu because this is one of our "go to" places."

  • "Food wasn't amazing & huge pepper chucks in everything. Great view yet the inside was so dark. Great that we could have a car pick us up but couldn't take it back unless we wanted to wait another 30mins but we had already sat waiting for our bill for 20 & had to go ask gostest to call for it. Table was in the back & had a wedding party passing by constantly to avoid."

  • "We would go back there in a heartbeat. The view was fantastic. My steak and my husband's prime rib was cooked to our specifications."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This was our first time at Palisade and we were very impressed. The view was incredible and the layout of the restaurant allowed everyone to see the it. My wife and I both ordered the surf and turf. My favorite was the prime rib while my wife enjoyed all the seafood. The wait staff was friendly and attentive but didn't intrude. I would highly recommend Palisades."

  • "Our waiter (Garret) did a nice job doing damage control. The evening started off tough. We were seated and waited 50 minutes before we were able to get the attention of a server to track down our waiter. Garret was not the waiter for our section but was brought in to save the day. While management did split the bill with us, the manager never came to apologize, that was left to Garret. While we had no other plans for the evening and the view was a great distraction, there are other dinning options competing for our dollars. Our next special night out would likely be to Ray's Boat House or Daniels Broiler."

  • "Have eaten at Palisade previously and walked away impressed and completely satisfied. They have admittedly made some significant changes on their menu, and quite honestly it just doesn't work. The crab and lobster bisque was incredible, as was the pork medley entree. The salmon and steaks were mediocre at best, and paying nearly $60 for Copper River King that was merely average left a poor taste in my mouth...or was that the salmon/sushi which arrive poorly prepared? I would have sent it back to be cooked longer, however since the waiter made a blunder on my order I was served just as others were finishing. I won't go back, and cannot recommend Palisade."

  • "We came for the early fixed price 3 course dinner and were very happy with our choice. There were several choices for each of the courses and the appetizer and entree courses were especially good, dessert was just OK. The ambiance on a sunny evening can't be beat, the marina and downtown views are great. Service was excellent and the manager went out of his way to be accomodating. Great value for the money."

  • "I booked a table to celebrate the mutual wedding anniversary's of three, long-time friends and couples. I noted this in my Open Table reservation, requested a view table, and the Palisades delivered! Our view table was waiting for us (on-time), with flowers (!) and three, Happy Anniversary cards for each of the couples! The wait staff was very attentive; the service great and the food excellent. Everyone had a very memorable evening."

  • "Palisades impresses us every time we visit. The staff is attentive, knowledgeable, and considerate. We are greeted warmly and seated quickly. The views are great and live music is amazing and way too rare at good restaurants. Highly recommended."

  • "Usual nice views, food was acceptable, but not as good as it has been in the past, and service was slow and inattentive."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We had friends visiting and yelped to find a restaurant with vies and great food. Service was friendly and spot on. Food was ample. Prices are high end and the taste matched the price. Portions were unexpectantly ample. I'll take other guests there."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Perhaps the Space Needle has a better view and maybe other restaurants surpass Palisade's wine list or menu selection, but few, anywhere, outdo Palisade for the totality of the experience you enjoy when you dine. It is an event for a special event, a treat for just about any reason at all, a chance to be catered to because you deserve it. The entire staff is friendly without being gratuitous or invasive; they seem to gear their service to exactly what you expect. If it's not right, they make it so you are happy: "We are not happy unless you are" seems to be the theme. My King Salmon entree was modified to my gluten-free request with a totally positive response. The other plates were equally amazing. We will be back, many times!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The view is great but the food is nothing special. There were a few nice items such as oysters and king crab legs. However, it is not a foodie's meal. Te cooked food was at a cafeteria level. The cold table does not even have good cold cuts and cheese. All in all, quite disappointed and definitely will not return."

  • "Excellent! Absolutely a must try for seafood and/or steaks."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "While the prix fixe lunch is always recommended...I tried the prime rib sandwich for the first time and it was awesome! It's an open faced sandwich meant to be eaten with a fork/knife (which is not apparent from the menu). I'll definitely be getting it again. The california roll was also great."

  • "It was with confidence I booked our anniversary dinner at Palidades. They held the door open before we reached the top step. They had a card and rose petals in the table congratulating the anniversary (alerted in the reservation). The service was elegant (slower pace, not rushed to decide). The quality of the food was 5 star, though my chef was a little too adventurous IMHO with pepperoni clams and something like raddicio accompanying the excellent Halibut. Wife's prime rib was prime! Beautiful views, good food, excellent service and a memorable evening. Thanks Pallisades."

  • "Happy Anniversary What stood out for us was that everything was delightful from driving up to the restaurant till we walked out into a beautiful evening. Delightful people, food, setting, view, atmosphere and it all flowed together wonderfully. Palisades made for a gracious and genteel dining experience par excellence! P.S. after dinner have a walk along the marina."

  • "Palisade has been our go-to restaurant with out of town visitors for many years, as was the case of our most recent dinner there on a Saturday night. The restaurant was a full but not overflowing; there were several large groups which I would guess had advance reservations. We were thus underwhelmed with our quality of service, which was painfully slow, throughout the entire dinner..even when many tables started clearing out. Something somewhere seemed understaffed or complacent; whichever, we'll consider taking visiting friends somewhere else, since we have plenty of options."

  • "I suggested Palisade to my friend whose daughter was graduating High School. We were short on time, but we wanted a terrific meal and we wanted to be close to Key Arena where graduation was being held. The service was excellent and quick. We ordered from Prix Fixe menu, received our food quickly and were out the door on time. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, and the view of the water was pristine. The restaurant is lovely. I suggest everyone try this restaurant - you won't be disappointed."

  • "I had dined here several years ago, and thought it would be great for a special occasion. Some of the food was great (grilled prawns, grilled salmon, poke, prime rib) but some was not to our liking. The crab cakes were too full of mayo or sour cream and not cooked crispy, scallops cooked well but the risotto too much al dente, and side potatoes were dark brown and mushy. Lobster bisque and fresh pea soup were good. We arrived with 6 instead of 5 for our reservation and it took almost 25 minutes for us to get seated, at a table that easily held 6. I felt it was overpriced for the quality of the food. The servers were great, attentive but not overly."

  • "My wife and I rated this very good, but not the excellent of past evenings. My halibut risotto portion was smaller than expected, and my wife's crab cakes not as hot as usual (we should have said something but didn't.) Also the staff acknowledged our 46th anniversary, which was very nice, but often a restaurant offers at least a small token desert, but not this time."
