Great place for Mothers Day Brunch on the patio.
First time I saw my family in over a year of Covid isolation. It was certainly a special occasion.
wonderful dining experience! will definitely visit again
Our group of seven had lunch on the patio a few days ago. The food was lovely and very tasty. The service was excellent. The ambience was very pleasant. We would happily return for another lunch.
The service was the high spot..Incredibly flexible and accommodating.
I took my wife to the Phoenix Museum of Art on Sunday We started the occasion at the Palette. The service was really good. We sat on the outdoor patio. We were met immediately by the server. She was quick with the initial experience. The ambiance was very nice, but sound carries very well within the patio confines. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time and was delicious. Everything was really above the normal dining experience.
The food was excellent - best salmon I have ever had. Drinks were great - they made some pretty odd concoctions for us and they were wonderful. Service was attentive without being nosy. Seating (indoors - we didn't want the lovely patio this time) was social distanced and it was pleasant and quiet.
Loved the patio and gardens!
Loved the fig salad and that Arizona wines are on the menu!
Dined outside, very lovely garden. Good and service were excellent.
We had no choice in seating outside as there was an event. The Palette should have a way of indicating seating is limited on such occasions . My reservation was made on line.
Went there for Easter Brunch. The menu was limited - very different from the Easter brunch menu online. Service was slow and we had to kept reminding the remainder what sides were missing. The waiter was nice enough to comp us on a few drinks and the sides that were late.
The food was excellent. But......even with a confirmed reservation for a specific time, it took an additional hour to be seated with no apology. Since we arrived 15 minutes early, that meant we sat for 75 minutes on a hard bench waiting to be seated as everyone else there was seated before us. We were the very last to be seated. I know restaurants have had it hard during COVID, so I don't want to be harsh. But it was very frustrating as we want to support local eateries. It looked like you were under-staffed because the poor hostess could not keep up.
It is always a pleasure to be at the Palette. The staff is friendly and attentive. I am able to eat well there even with my dietary restrictions. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is peaceful.
Perfect place for lunch before a matinee at Phoenix Theatre. Nice, original selection of lunch and brunch items. All of us enjoyed our meals. The seating and view outside looked very nice but a little warm. We decided to eat inside where the ambience is much more bland, like a hotel restaurant. However, I highly recommend Palette for the food and location near the theatre.
what a wonderful meal! Great food, attentive service on a beautiful day.
Food was very nicely presented and of good quantity. The server was not overbearing but did make a good suggestion on my lunch choice. He was also knowledgeable as to what was in specific foods.
I had made a reservation for a table outside. The host said the tables in the shade were reserved for others so we could not have a table in the shade. Not treated well.
We sat inside. Other tables received water and had their orders taken before ours. Delay. It took forever to get the food after we ordered. Delay. When we finished, we waited a very long time to get someone to take the credit card. Delay. I finally stood up to leave and someone then came over. Delay. Not enough help.
Food was amazing, but a little overpriced. $150 for 5 people for lunch with one cocktail, 4 sandwiches and one bowl of soup.
We sat outside and it was so peaceful and beautiful. The food was fabulous!
I was very disappointed that I was able to make a reservation for a day that your restaurant wasn’t even open! I drove from Mesa to take a friend out for a nice lunch only to get there and find you were closed.
Love it here! Food is delicious, the outdoor patio is peaceful and beautiful, the staff is friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!
Great service (Dylan), lovely setting and perfect social distancing. The cannoli was the best ever!
Food and service was exceptional. Eat on patio wonderful surroundings.
Waiter forgot about us. Waited 40 minutes for our brunch. When served it was not cold but it wasn’t hot. Had to go inside to pay.
Great food and service in a delightful outdoor dining setting.
Beautiful patio, well spaced tables
Palette has always been one of my favorites! The portobello melt is sooooo good! The service is always amazing! Great Covid procedures in place - masks and gloves. Plan a great day of visiting the art museum and lunch at Palette! Highly recommend!!
Very cordial staff who practiced safe Covid precautions! Great time!
Coming to Pallet is always a highlight of visiting the Phoenix Art Museum.
Such a wonderful place to dine. We sat outside on a sunny warm winter day and it was perfect. Staff was very accommodating for me to order my drink a certain way ;-) and the food was very tasty. Great staff and lovely place. And then off to the museum!
Excellent covid safety measures
The food did not seem as good as it has been in the past, but it was good. It was served in a safe way in sturdy plastic containers with wrapped utensils and napkins, and the outdoor dining was lovely.
Palette has a perfect lunch menu and the wait staff are always wonderful.
Always a highlight of coming to the museum. The menu is limited now due to covid.
So great to return to the Museum and Palette. With the accommodations they've made and the outdoor seating, we had a great, safe, delicious time!
A nice, selected choices of Arizona wines and beers. A good selection of different foods and very good grilled cheese with plenty of cheese. The fries were average. We sat outside, under cover while it was raining. Limited seats under cover but if you don't mind a little nip in the area, it's very pleasant. Less noise too.
Lunch at the Palette is a very pleasant experience. It is a small restaurant, clean and simply decorated. The menu is also simple, but full of fresh, locally-grown, healthy choices. You can have an entree or, as I did, mix and match smaller treats. I enjoyed the deviled eggs and a bowl of the butternut squash soup. It is a perfect complement for a wonderful day exploring the Phoenix Art Museum.
What a location. We had beers and hand chopped guacamole on the patio. The manicured lawn coupled with a great mix of ancestral trees was stunning. It was also a really good value...everything was reasonably priced...
Good food. VERY slow service. Went on Valentines Day and it wasn’t busy enough to justify to long wait for food and drinks.
