Palace Cafe is a great local farm to table restaurant. All the dishes are prepared with attention to detail and the thought they put into designing and executing their menu is apparent. It's a cozy, intimate setting and the noise level is not overbearing like some other joints. I've always enjoyed everything I've had there and this trip was no exception. The two minor nits I have to pick with them are:
1. Sometimes it's hard to get anyone to physically answer the phone - if you need to discuss anything beyond a simple online reservation.
2. Please work on updating your website more often and highlighting your seasonal menus. There are times when I've wanted to eat at Palace, but the menu online remains the same so I've chosen to go elsewhere. This trip was the same. The menu at the restaurant was different (both item and price-wise) than what is posted on your website.

We had 6:15 reservations and one of the entrees was already unavailable, really? My kale and cherry salad had exactly ONE cherry in it. A little annoying.

A tad noisy. Good waiter. Good food. A tad disappointed with a 6:00 reservation. The hostess needed to set the table before us. Almost no one in restaurant at the time. Would have liked to have been prepared and ready.

I made the mistake of taking my significant other there for the first time.
It was so extremely loud at 11:30am that we had to text each other if we needed to hear each other. I don't have hearing problems and I couldn't even hear the waiter when I tried to order. The couples on either side of us were so loud as their voices bounced off the walls and the overall noise level were absolutely drowning. The acoustics are horrible in this restaurant, which is unfortunate.
The menu has changed and is not up to date.
Crepes were on the open table menu and that is the reason we went and we found out at the table they are not offered anymore. As a substitute, he ordered a burger medium well, it came out medium rate if not rare. His burger was a bit bloody.
I was a bit embarrassed by my choice of dining today. I have previously had a great experience here. Fingers crossed, our next experience will be successful. I do not give up easy. We will return.

Most of our meal was fantastic. My eggs with goat cheese, mushrooms and ham were divine. My only complaint was that the toast that arrived with my brunch meal was so dry and hard that it snapped when I broke a piece off. It was not edible. The Reubens the other folks at our table ordered were great and the corned beef was perfect.

Salmon & warm farro salad were delicious. Next time I'll ask for the Brussels sprouts
without the siracha sauce, but did enjoy the carmelization on them. My husband said
the tenderloin pasta dish was good, but he wouldn't order it again.

My husband asked for white toast and they came out with 3 pieces of a burnt baguette. I ordered a mimosa and black stuff was all in my glass sizzling away. Our waitress rarely checked on us. This was probably the worst service we have had at this establishment.

Short Review: Food and service were lazy, unimaginative, and over priced.

Long Review: My girlfriend and I visited from out of town and took a chance on Palace Cafe for a NYE celebration dinner based on positive reviews from local food magazines. The dishes, lobster piled salad, steak tenderloin, gnocchi, all sounded potentially interesting but were executed in a mediocre manner. Imagine cutting into a luke warm beef tenderloin (which tasted like fish?) only to find it lying on a hidden bed of raw, unflavored arugula that had wilted unnecessarily from having a piece of meat thrown on it. A cloyingly sweet demi-glaze drizzled around the plate the only flavor to be found. The same demi-glaze that had been used on all previous dishes.

We had also initially chosen Palace Cafe because their usually dinner service provided some ample vegetarian options that my vegan girlfriend thought were interesting. There were no special vegetarian NYE menu (completely understandable), but they did offer all of their usual vegetarian dinner menu. The few modifications needed to make certain dishes vegan (aka, "leave off the cheese") where graciously handled on a busy NYE eve. However, something pitched as a "kale salad" was the same sad arugula that arrived on my dishes and every dish had zested lemon. Why?

Our booth was in the bar area on the way to and from the kitchen - an area traditionally (and understandably) managed by one over-worked bartender. We were actually excited to have a quite, romantic booth away from the main dining room. However, waiters rushed by without clearing plates and congregated at the nearby bar to constantly complain about the management or other diners. At one point, a waitress counseled the bartender, "pour anything in there, they won't know the difference."

Save your money for some place better.
