Our server Steph W was amazing. We were celebrating a birthday and she was very attentive and helpful. The kitchen seemed to be off their timing, it took longer than expected for our appetizers and then another wait for the main course. All the food was delicious. Steph was good about letting us know how much longer for the food. It seemed odd as the place was not overly busy. Thanks for a great venue to celebrate our occasion.

We have always made it an attempt to dine at Palisades whenever we are in town which is once or twice a year. The food is always great, the offerings inventive twists, the view is wonderful and the staff is very good. This time, we were a little disappointed by the length of time it took to have water glasses refilled, to receive our food and just the attentiveness of our waiter. Owning a small business, I understand how hard it is to keep good people and it seems that, although our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable, he had quite a few other tasks to perform...we think as he was in the kitchen quite a bit. There were only 2 servers on our weekday/noontime visit. That being said, the food was great and we had a nice time.

I don’t enjoy seeing an additional service fee on my bill. For people who manage to come even on a tight budget won’t appreciate a 5% surprise on the bill.

The view was utterly incredible and our server was fantastic! She was so accommodating and wanting to assist in preparing dishes separately for her, especially as my friend has some significant food allergies (this was during the brunch buffet). While some items in the buffet were not ideal, the overall experience was great.

We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Palisades. We were there on a weekday for an early dinner so was not very crowded. Had wonderful table next to window overlooking Elliot Bay and the Seattle skyline. The service was great. They even gave us a nice card and rose petals to help us celebrate plus a complimentary dessert. This is our favorite restaurant in Seattle.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Brunch at Palisades! The Eggs Benedict and Creme Brulee french toast were our favorites. Excellent service and we did not feel rushed at all. It was SO much better than the Brunch at Salty's!

I reserved a table for my birthday. I booked through the Open Table and specifically asked for a good table. Our table was not ready at the time of reservation. When we were finally ushered to our table, it was in the middle if busy traffic, far away from the window, without a view and next to a crying baby. I was very disappointed and was ready to leave. The hostess decided to intervene and asked me what my concerns were. As I was expressing my concerns, she interjected me that I was being rude. The manager then came to tell me that the hostess accused me for yelling at her! The manager found a table that is half-way decent fir my party but it was not the usual good experience that I had with this restaurant.

Wonderful evening with my Mom - food was great but what really stood out was the service. She was phenomenal in every way - one of the best service experiences I’ve ever had (and I dine out regularly, all around the world). Our server was even more impressive than the view, which I didn’t think could be beat.

The food never disappoints me, and our waitress was exceptional! We went there for a belated Valentines Day dinner, in which I was glad that Palisades had a Valentines Day menu that they carried through the weekend. I loved the Cupid’s Valentines Dual dessert, which had various chocolate vs. vanilla dessert items.

The delicious food and impeccable service are tops at Palisade. The view, of course, is wonderful, too. You must try the PuPu Platter to start if your party has 3 or more guests. The tenderloin bits and crab cakes are tasty and the presentation is grand. Delicious, creative cocktails, super fresh seafood, - I had dungeness stuffed Mahi Mahi, crisp polenta & charred lemon, while my husband enjoyed prime rib cooked perfectly as ordered. Beautiful desserts and coffee drinks to top off an unforgettable evening. Can’t wait to return!

First, let me say that I've been to Palisade several times and it has always been a favorite of mine because of it's unique location in Elliot Bay, the quality of food, the service, and the ambiance. However, I decided to go for my birthday this past weekend and there was something that generally was a little off. The food quality was not where I remember it being, and the value was clearly tied, more to the escalation of general costs of dining out in Seattle and the location; rather than high quality food, decent portions, and excellent service. I don't think this was their best night, as there were several celebrations going on in the restaurant; including my birthday. I had a seafood combo, and I would venture to guess that I probably got 4-5 ounces of protein, in the form of a small piece of King salmon, 2 medium scallops, and 1 prawn. My wife had the salmon, that was set upon a kale leaf and potato/fennel hash; the presentation was not what either of us were accustomed to based on previous visits. Needless to say, we left less than satisfied and bewildered, questioning whether we received fair value for the money.
