Atmosphere is first rate. Beautiful views. The restuarant has a great design and great ambience and not loud. Service is excellent. Wait staff is attentive but not intrusive. Prices are on the high side but not unexpected for a restaurant of this caliber. Although all the food was prepared and presented beautifully, there was one common theme. Everything seemed to be excessively salty. The dip that came with my prime rib was like liquid salt. One dip of that and I never tried it again. The meat was already plenty salty as it was. I've been there several times in the past and hadn't experienced that before. So perhaps it was an unusual circumstance but, I'd still certainly try them again. The atmosphere is still well worth it.

Very disappointed. I chose a wine off the wine menu but was told that my choice of wine was not available and apparently had not been available for many months yet the selection remained on the wine selection. There was a “chef’s offering” which contained a food element that we could not have so we declined it staying the reason why but we were not offered a substitute. The entrées were lukewarm after having waited substantially after our appetizers had been eaten. Finally, the restaurant adds an obligatory 4% for the kitchen staff, which for me equates to having the general public pay the employee salaries instead of providing appropriate wages for them. This is nothing other than a tip and as such, I as the consumer should be given the option to provide (or not) that gratuity based on my experience.

Regretfully, Palisade is resting on it’s laurels and is not offering quality and service deserving of such high prices.

Been here several time before. This time seafood was undercooked, bordering raw and slimy inside...was told afterwards they cook seafood medium rare. Steak was over cooked. Just not what I expected for a 2-person $225 dinner. They accommodated us...but experience was not on par for a top notch restaurant.

We have eaten here many times over the last ten years. This the second time meal was bad. I will keep going back . I had the bone New York and my wife had the Halibut cheeks. The Halibut was over cooked and chewy. My steak I could of went to Costco and have a better steak. Then the waiter hardly came around we wanted desert. He brought a box for my wife's left over and didn't even ask if we wanted to see the menu for desert I had to ask him for it. He never came to ask how everything was. This was the first time I asked for the manager. He did take the $54.00 steak off the ticket. However we won't black list t he Palisade from our dinning places to go.

Nice ambiance, excellent food, and you are not rushed (the food is intentionally brought out at a leisurely pace, so that you can relax and enjoy your meal and your company). My only complaint would be that the guests behind us felt the need to open the window shade, allowing the intense evening sun to blind us and several other patrons. Rude, but certainly not the restaurant's fault (and they were eventually asked to lower it again).

We have been to Palisade on numerous occasions. It is always very attractive and wonderful for kids (they love feeding the fish), The “Luau Brunch” was fabulous. There was an abundance of great food: hot and cold crab, large shrimp, 2 varieties of salmon, sushi, bprine rib, ham,reakfast items of all sorts, fruit, desserts, and a chocolate fountain with goodies. Much more. Expensive, but worth every penny. Soft drinks, juice and coffee included. Service from Mariah was wonderful — competent, friendly. She brought a complimentary piece of birthday cake for our 5 year-old celebrant, as well. Great restaurant!

Minimum wage increase was passed in Seattle. The restaurant owner passed these costs to the diner. We paid a 4.9% LWgeSC for this. Additionally, we were taxed on the low minimum wage increase. Our bill for 2 was 172.00. The 4.9% added another 8.43 to the bill. We were taxed on 180.43 instead of 172.00. The explanation for this...the owner didn't want to pass on the costs to the diner in the way of menu prices. Hmm...I am still paying for the increase no matter which way you slice it.

Had a wonderful Sunday brunch at Palisade. Quite reasonably priced for the high quality items offered. Wow, what an experience. Crab legs, ceviche, ahi poke, oyster shooters, prawn cocktail. And that’s just one small sample of what they offer. The view of the harbor is beautiful and service is top notch from start to finish.

A dear friend took me out for Valentine's Day and suggested Palisade as I had never been there. Our reservation was 9:00pm, and we arrived on time. Surprisingly, we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated, but I was delighted when we were taken to a window table. The view is breathtaking, so I understand why my friend brings all of his friends and family here. However, the meal was underwhelming. They had a prix fixe, 3-course menu for this holiday: Starters, Entrees and Desserts for $75 per person. In my opinion, this was egregiously overpriced. I chose the jumbo prawn cocktail as my starter, and there were 2 - yes, 2 - jumbo prawns. My entree choice was salmon on a bed of mashed cauliflower with 5 asparagus spears (in place of Brussels sprouts). There was nothing special about this entree, no heart-shaped garnish or outstanding accompaniment. The salmon filet was approximately 6 oz., cooked perfectly but nothing special. What was outstanding was their bread: warm, soft center with a crisp, slightly salty crust. Happily, it was served with an abundance of soft butter. Sadly, I requested more bread when the basket was empty, and the bread never appeared. Really?!? The final dessert choices were woefully inadequate: a marscarpone cheesecake, a fondue with toasted marshmallows (messy), and a mass-produced flourless chocolate cake. Both of us opted for the cake, and again, it was nothing special. A breathtaking view of the Seattle waterfront could not compensate for the lack of inspiration demonstrated by the kitchen and the wait staff.

BEST RESTAURANT EXPRERIENCE EVER! My girlfriend and I brought our 4 month year old, we were celebrating our anniversary, I requested a view and they gave us one of the best! On top of that, they put rose pedals on our table, my lady found that lovely. We ordered the set priced 3 course valentines day meal for $75 a person, the food was absolutely fantastic! If you like seafood I recommend the crab stuffed colossal prawns. They let us taste before ordering, TJ was very friendly and professional. The wine flight was perfectly matched with the 3 course. Finally, our entire meal was covered! We're unsure whether the restaurant did this for us or somebody in the restaurant but we were told that they were happy to see a young couple taking care of a baby, this made my girlfriend teary eyed and I cant lie I may have been a bit choked by the gracious gift. We promise to return the gift to another young couple with a child in the future. We'll defiantly be returning to try the lobster and recommend all of our friends here for any occasion for now on!

We had a special evening at Palisade. The view is fantastic and the service is really great. We both had fish and our dishes were cooked to perfection. The food is very rich, so if you're not into butter and salt, this is probably not a great choice for you. It's also quite pricey, but a romantic and memorable dinner spot.

The digital piano music is not entirely relaxing, but it does sound live.

From the complimentary valet parking, all of the staff, the waterfront location facing Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Bainbridge Island, the inside lagoon, player piano above the bar, this is a relaxing and enjoyable place to dine and spend time with special people. Thank you Palisade.

Our server was less than attentive to our table which put a damper on the evening. She neglected to offer pepper for the bisque or salad and we never saw her again until we were way done. We were never asked how either was. They both were very goid but could have used a little pepper.
I ordered the prime rib medium rare and specifically said I wanted it more red than pink. It was served to me looking like a cooked rib steak. She said it was pan seared but would be fine. I cut into it and said no it was not fine. I give her credit as she took it away and returned soon after with a medium rare cut. Who pan sears a slice of prime rib? The 2nd cut was very good though, as were the brussel sprouts accompanying it. The au gratin potatoes were like shredded hash browns and were only lukewarm.
The cream brulee trio was stated as dark chocolate, vanilla and raspberry. The dark chocolate turned out to be coffee flavored. The others were very delicious.
The restaurant and view are beautiful.
