Fantastic service from start to finish! Excellent cocktails and appetizers before the main course and it was all delicious. Will definitely be back.

*This was a date night for my wife and I. We have minor children and needed time to ourselves and this place fit the bill for a nice relaxing evening. Would recommend for an intimate date setting.*

The potstickers were super fishy which surprised us. The menu listed on Open Table was not up to date and I had chosen an entree that apparently was no longer available (Beef Cobb) so I was bummed.

The server was delightful and eager to please.

One of our most favorite restaurants in Tulsa. Since we live way out in south Tulsa it's not always the most convenient but when we head downtown for a Celebrity show at the PAC this is our venue for dinner. Outstanding food. Excellent service. And, always consistent. We will be back many, many times in the future.

We went for Valentine's Day and had the wonderful Chefs menu. The only complaint I have is that the server could have explained each course when delivered. It was also quite pricey however, the food was impeccable.

This is one of my preferred restaurants. Tonight I loved the sea bassz. The julienned veggies at the bottom would have been better with a lighter dose of soy. The veggies absorbed all the soy. The soy could have been a drizzle ornon the side.

Paloma our server was warm and knowledgeable. My dad said it was the best meal he'd had in years. It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday, and loved that there were ample options for the vegetarians at the table as well as the carnivores.

We stopped in for an appetizer and drink before an event. The service was perfect and accomodated our need to eat fairly quickly. The food was delicious. It is always a nice atmosphere. It is a favorite because it is quieter than many other places (without feeling dead). I highly recommend Palace.

Excellent brunch and wine selections, best service in town, accommodated my low carb diet by subbing wonderful little arugula salad in place of potatoes, and oh the hot tea!! I would go there everyday for tea if I could. Thank you for a perfect Sunday brunch!

Hello Chef Shrader. I was writing a review to you a few minutes ago and it got sent before I was done. My apology for any grammatical errors but I had not had a chance to proof it before it got sent.

I was writing about your fried trout. Please see my partially completed review that I sent a bit ago. Is there anyway you could post a day ahead of time when you are having the fried trout? Do you have a website where you could do this? I do not have Facebook, or Instagram account. Or could you send out a group email to customers that frequent your restaurant as to when you will have the fried trout?

Your restaurant in the only establishment where I have ever had fried trout and it is delicious. I look forward to having it again.

Sincerely,
Michael Carney

It was a last minute reservation and our first visit. Seated quickly but waited several minutes for server to come by the table. Only negative to the evening. Everything after that was great. Servers suggestions were right on. Will definitely be returning.

A definite go-to restaurant for special occasions, less than a mile from our house. The cooking is so creative and the ingredients so fresh. The wood-fired grill (and people who know how to use it) produced the highlights of the evening: my salmon and my wife's asparagus.

I have eaten here 4or 5 times in the past and was never disappointed. This time the food failed. The atmosphere, service and appetizers were all fine, but all three entrees were subpar. The scallops were raw in the muddle and even after retiring them, they were underdone. The polenta was under seasoned and the creme fraiche on top was so cold that it cooled the dish down too much. Basically, it was all under seasoned. My group was surprised and very disappointed.

We were a large party but the service was great, no one waited for anything. Short ribs fell off the bone, fries were crisp, and you could change sides as needed.

My friend and I went to brunch here on a Sunday and the food is awesome! I got the omelet and my friend got the green eggs and ham. Both meals totally delicious (my compliments to the chef). Our waitress was awesome. She was so sweet and very helpful. I would go back just to have her as our waitress. But there were some downsides. The downsides were the atmosphere and the hostess. The restaurant is super dark. I wish it was a little brighter for a Sunday brunch. And when we got there, the hostess was not pleasant. We were dressed casually but the hostess acted like we were not fit for dining and barely spoke a word to us. I would go back for the food but hope they have a friendlier hostess next time.
