Visited twice this year. Food always falls flat. Chef de Cuisine needs to learn how to apply acid to his dishes. Great service.

Palace Kitchen never disappoints! We were hungry after a late show and it was still open and as good as I remembered a while back. Service is great and I could eat the ravioli everyday.

Great evening. Staff perfect as always. The grilled trout was excellent. Beet starter and Brussels sprouts a good start. The plin tasted great. Nice Malbec and Smith’s tea to finish. Typical evening at the Palace.

Knowledgeable wait staff prepared to match wine with food choices. Quality mostly local well-prepared food. Soft lights, quirky decor, good music just loud enough to fill any pauses in conversation, quiet enough to permit it. Love it all.

For the price and automatic 20% gratuity, the food and service was alright. Felt rushed by server and the $21 burger was dry and not as "royale" as I remember.

At 630 in the evening you were out of Chicken. Really? Prior to being seated for dinner we stood at the bar for a drink. Getting someone to wait on us was less than impressive. Don't think I'll be returning.

Have always had a great experience at Palace Kitchen. This time was a little off from that usual excellence, due to some food miscues. Service was uniformly excellent. We had two items. The first was a veggie gnocchi with delicata squash and charred broccoli. As a rule, vegetarians don't like smoky flavors, and my wife is no exception to this. If the broccoli had been oven roasted as opposed to charred, she would have been most satisfied. I had the creste di gallo pasta, with great ingredients, particularly the mushrooms. I was particularly excited to have the sauce choron, which I consider to be the greatest grilled meat sauce in the world, a béarnaise sauce with tomato puree. The pallid and flavorless covering was a great disappointment. I would recommend a re-formulation of this sauce if you serve it again. We will be back, and I expect the same high standards that I have always enjoyed.

Eclectic and varied menu that delivered for our party of 6. Our only criticism was that the music/ambient noise levels made it difficult for us to talk to each other across the table.

Amazing food, friendly server. Server did say “entire menu is basically gluten free,” which isn’t even close to being true & led us to believe she doesn’t understand what gf means. She also didn’t put the order in for one of our drinks, at the end of the evening, but we didn’t get charged so that was Ok.
The overall ambiance is lovely- dark and warm... The problem is with reading the menu in such darkness was difficult for all of us. The phone flashlights came in handy! So, they could use pen flashlights with the menus and that would be helpful.

I’ve eaten at PK many time prior to a Seattle Civic Cocktail event. Always have enjoyed. This time was what I’d consider an off night. They were out of Hendricks gin. The trout I ordered, while deboned by the server, had so many bones left in it that I only had a couple of bites without bones in it. I’ve had trout many times in nice restaurants and if the trout is cooked to perfection, deboning is a great success. This was not a server issue. Our server was wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable, attentive. Our meals were okay, but not up to normal standards. Bring back the carrot soup!

Went for resturant week and the service and food were good. The onion soup was excellent, my pasta dish with venison was good, and the s'mores ice cream dessert (can't remember the real name) was very good. Place was nearly full on a Sunday night. I'd definitely return.

Outstanding dining experience! Starting with excellent service from our efficient, friendly waitress(Emily), my daughter and I had a wonderful dining experience. We shared the delicious Piedmontese ravioli appetizer, followed by the mixed chicory salad with pears, bleu cheese & walnuts. For our entree, we enjoyed the perfectly cooked wild Alaskan halibut w/clams, zucchini, new potatoes and saffron broth. The 2015 Piedmont Barolo was a great accompaniment to our dinner. We couldn’t resist ending our dining experience without trying the seasonal sticky pumpkin pudding, and a latte. I look forward to returning to Palace Kitchen again in the near future!

It was very loud and our mains took forever to come out. They comped our starter for the delay which was very nice. The Plin starter is amazing!

I didn’t enjoy the experience. There were three people in my party and we all feel rushed.
They brought my onion soup (good) first which was great.
Then they brought my pasta and their only dish came later. I ended up eating by myself and watching them eat.
Food was good but I will only be back if I’m in a rush and want to feel like I’m eating at a good college dining room

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.

Previously living in the Puget Sound, the Palace Kitchen was a favorite place for us to dine when in Seattle. It's been seven years and we planned a Foodie weekend to Seattle, WA. The Palace was high on our list and we made a reservation weeks in advance. We ordered the corn cob appetizer which was voted the best out of the entire meal (there were 6 of us dining). Two of us ordered the roasted chicken, one halibut, two burgers and the other two veggie side dishes. The halibut smelled so strong of old fish, not even this salty old fisherman could eat it; was surprised they would serve it. I was offered a replacement and ordered what I thought was tried and true roasted chicken. The three of us who had the chicken thought it was mediocre, not at all like before. The chicken meat was moist and flavorful, the skin soggy, and the sauce unappealing. The side of mashed potatoes were watery - again, surprised a restaurant of this reputation would serve them. The burgers were reported "fine" but the abundance of fries were greasy, really greasy. Our friend who ordered two of the veggie appetizers, one that was deep fried veggies, well hers were greasy as well. Disappointed, but hopeful, we decided to end our meal with what was one our favorite Seattle desserts; The Palace Kitchen's Coconut Cream Pie. The ultimate disappointment. The pie tasted primarily of whipped cream, and had a texture of an over abundance of air. Not at all the rich, flavorful, custard and whipped cream concoction we'd grown fond of - sadly $12 each. All in all our "Foodie weekend" was fun, and by far the Palace was our biggest disappointment. We dined on a Friday night, 7:30.
