Palisade Ratings and Reviews
The two of us were seated promptly at a table with an excellent view. The 3-course for $15.00 menu was very good. The beef lentil soup was nicely spiced and arrived at the table hot. The hearts of palm were equally good. The miso salmon sandwich was huge. It had a nice sauce with just enough tang and the roll was fresh. The salmon was done perfectly. We took home a half sandwich each. The desserts were excellent as usual.The waiter was attentive as were other members of the staff. We plan on making Palisade one of our regular monthly luncheon spots.
I loved the staff, they were very friendly and our waiter that we had was hilarious. I enjoyed his company, he was very professional. I like how he offered us a flashlight to see the menu because it was a little dark in the restaurant. That's the only thing that wasn't the best. I would turn up the lights a little bit.
We went on a Thursday night for my birthday. Though the service was attentive and the ambience and view were excellent, the entrees themselves didn't really stand up to the prices. The sommelier was friendly, but he didn't appear to really be that conversant with the wine list...as if he hadn't actually sampled and selected the wines himself. The mahi-mahi was bland, and though the Opah was tasty, it was a bit tough and the accompanying rice cakes were uninspired, both in taste and presentation. The desserts though, were very good...quite a step above the entrees. Palisade is a Seattle institution because of their great location and a reputation for good food, but it appears they may be becoming a bit complacent.
Palisade offers 3 lunch courses for $15 not just for Dine Around Seattle but year round. Unfortunately, the wild Hawaiian albacore in my nicoise salad was a bit overcooked and tasted as if it had not survived the journey across the Pacific very well. In addition, the Passion Fruit Creme Brulee was still hot and watery....like sipping a sugary soup. However, my friend said his burger was so divine that he didn't even want to have dessert so that he could still savor the burger's residual flavor in his mouth. Now that is a great burger!
The food was excellent during our recent visit for a 1:00 lunch, but the service left something to be desired. "Unhurried" would have been good for a fine dining establishment, but this was "glacial." We waited a long time to order, to get drinks, to get the food, to get our bill, etc. Beverage refills were brought, but the empties were never taken away. Water glasses went un-refilled. Overall, because of interesting and tasty food, a nice experience, despite the service.
P.S. The passionfruit crème brûlée was a little too brûlée.
Every time everything is great...the service, the view, the food, the environment. The only reason I didn't give food an "outstanding" this time is because the bread pudding was more like an upside down cake. Having a southern reference for how it normally is prepared influenced my opinion.
I've been here once for brunch a long time ago and it was beautiful. This year we surprised my mom for her birthday. She has been carrying around a card for the Palisades in her pruse for over 4 years. I guess she was complaining on the way down that we could have just taken her to the Olive Garden. But once she got there she was genuinely happy and surprised.
My expierence from the time we parked was fantastic the attendant opened the front door as if we were old friends/family the hostess was very pleasent with a smile our wait staff were professional and our wine stewart was knowledgeable and the food was incredable along with our table next to the window romantic views.the room was semi crowed but the noise was very minamal.Overall I would recomend /and I will return.Thanks Rick Brown
The wild halibut was recommended by the server, and for $33. I found the fish dry and disappointing, especially for the price.
The fried calimari as an appetizer was OK but not in the caliber of the calimari I've had at Flying Fish. The Wasabe sauce, however, was excellent. My Caeser salad was too large (for a "small dinner salad"....as the server described it), and not especially good (no anchovies either), once again especially for the price. The other diners at our table had the house salad which they liked better. As a first time diner (together with two other first timers) I expected much higher quality of food, especially for the prices.
I like the ambience, but otherwise was disappointed.
Palisade greatly disappointed us. It used to be a popular upscale restaurant, but half the tables were empty on the Friday night we were there during the 2.5 hours we were there. The potato side dish that half of our group of 6 were served were too salty and tasted like it was made from instant potatoes -- the maitre d' and head chef came out to apologize for it. Other dishes were so-so. There was a large king crab belly up in the center of Palisade's indoor pool, dead from something it ate, but no on on the staff thought to remove it.
I took my wife and her mother for the 3 course lunch menu deal of $15 per person. The food was good, but does not compare to the main courses found on the dinner menu. Normally, bread is served by default, but we had to ask for it this time. I'm not sure if that was protocol with the lunch special or not, but it was relatively prompt service when it was requested. Overall, for the price, the food and experience was great.
If you have a special evening engagement, Palisades is on top of my list. It has the whole package and is an adventure to find if it's your first time. I celebrate my anniversaries there. The servers are pretty knowledgeable to their wine list and knows how to match the wine to your main course meal. Bon Appetit
It had been sometime since I have been here. I was underwhelmed by my last dinner there.The October 2 for 15 drew me in and a friend wanted to meet for lunch.
The food wasn't bad but it was rather dull. The beef and barley soup was average. The lobster and crab salad would more accurately be described as a green salad with a bit of seafood thrown in. The bread pudding was good.
My friend mentioned that he found the meal to be somewhat disappointing.
Service was very good.
Overall, I would not say that it was worth the drive.
