We had not been to the Palace Kitchen in several years and were very pleasantly reminded of the quality of food and service that are so characteristic of it and the other Tom Douglas restaurants in the area. We had an excellent meal, the service was first rate and the wine list, while not expansive was just perfect for our dinners. We will gladly return.

Tom Douglas could make grampa’s 50 yr old leather shoe into a marvelous meal. Creativity intersects with familiarity resulting in a great memorable meal. Seattle is expensive and the Palace Is challenged to balance price vs. value - even so: give them a shot.

Best and Coolest restaurant in Seattle...the room has a big city feel but the menu has localized ingredients and soul warming dishes. Lots a restaurants come and go but the Palace remains the measuring stick.

I ordered the short rib risotto, which was just ok. The short rib was overcooked so that it tasted more like well done roast beef, but the appetizer I chose was absolutely amazing. The plin (hand made pork ravioli in brown butter sage sauce) was so delicious that I am sure that I will dream about it. The sevice was very good and I would eat there again when I return to Seattle.

Good location, vibrant atmosphere. They were out of one of the ordered entrees, and the Gumbo & Jerk Pork Chop lacked imagination and heat. Very attentive staff. Best food was their hand-cut, pre-soaked French fries.

Three of our party had the fried turkey leg which was so so with marginal sides. My girlfriend had the Royale Burger ordered medium rare but she found it to be dry and unappealing. I brought this to the attention of our server and she had it removed from the bill. Over all we were disappointed with the experience.

Second time visit from out of town and it was terrific! Sometimes servers dial it in when asked for recommendations but not here. Steered us to spot on selections after hearing some of our input and questions. That was truly genuine and showed the passion of the restaurant as a whole. Will be b.c. ack every time we hit Seattle!

Best waitress ever-Tara Wiedenman. Perfect pacing, great food recommendations, great suggestions on things to do in Seattle. Jerk pork chop was succulent and tasty and clams with andouille sausage was equally good. Great ambiance. We’ll be back.

We have enjoyed Palace Kitchen every time we have been there. The food is always excellently prepared, creative and completely delicious. The service was just right with great attention to our needs, useful advice and very personable and approachable. Even though Seattle has a lively and interesting food scene, we always try to visit Palace at least once whenever we head to Seattle.

We went with out of town friends for dinner and was treated cordially throughout the meal service. The food was thoughtfully prepared and fresh. To the restaurant's credit, we were 'comped' two starter dishes when I saw that one of the ordered dishes contained chili peppers. Since two out of four of us were either allergic or did not like chili peppers, the kitchen and staff offered to bring us another starter dish. Palace Kitchen made a good impression on our guests' first visit to Seattle.
