Excellent service and dinner
The food is great. The atmosphere is welcoming and quiet. Th service is attentive.
We had a very nice birthday celebration dinner. The food was elevated Italian, with a nice (but somewhat small) selection for everyone to choose from…meat, pasta, fish, veggies. The service was exceptional, although our waiter did seem to disappear for a bit when it came time to order dessert…but eventually materialized and expedited our order. It was a lovely place for a nice dinner with our family. We would highly recommend it for a special occasion.
Jack and Justin were wonderful knowledgeable waiters. The owner Michael DelPietro even stop by our table. The cauliflower appetizer was very tasty. All of our dinners swordfish, cacio del pepe were so yummy. Will definitely go back again and again.
Fantastic Resturant with exceptional service. My favourite place in the City!
Great service, atmosphere romantic and elegant. Food amazing!
Probably worse service I’ve ever had. However food was amazing. So if you want to be seated 30 min late and wait for forever for amazing food. This is your place. They did give an apology dessert, but then we had to correct issues with the bill. Just everything was all over the place.
First time here. The food was really good and the service was good as well. The ravioli, cauliflower appetizers were so so good. We will definitely be back.
The food and service was fabulous! Every course left us saying, “We don’t need anything except more of this!” Service was perfect - attentive without being intrusive. Decor was very nice as well. Only room for improvement was the somewhat dated music playing in the background.
Although the menu changes regularly (Open Table's is currently out-of-date!), we loved the salad with shaved brussels sprouts and the special entree of sliced duck breast in a lovely sweet/tart sauce. The shell pasta with shrimp and clams in shell was also great and highly recommended if you enjoy pasta in a light seafood broth (also had leafy vegetables that added to it's complexity).
Food outstanding, chairs extremely comfortable, ambiance delightful, just somewhat short handed but our server took good care of us.
The food and service was outstanding.
We have been going to Il Palato for a couple years and we feel like it keeps getting better and better. The food was outstanding and our server was awesome!
Great food and service
Our servers, Justin and Jack, were wonderful. The manager is incredibly attentive, and everything about the restaurant is exceptional, down to the tiniest detail. We made a quick change to our reservation (invited my mom to join us) and with 1-2-3 magic, they modified our table. A wonderful evening!
Unexpected goodness and relaxed special time
From a very uninterested in our experience staff to dishes that were send back twice for being so salty that were impossible to eat, that was a night to remember. Had two servers, the guy was good and trying, but the lady really did not care, extremely cold and making rude comments, even telling us after sending the food back twice that she ads salt when she orders that dish. We were a little shocked, payed and walked out. A wasted night
Inconsistent service….waiter did not write down order, then wrong items were brought out or forgotten. Food was average.
I am so excited to go back! It was the BEST dinner! We went for a Birthday dinner and it was so delicious! I will be back soon! Gorgeous setting and loved our dinner!
Highly recommend the Cauliflower appetizer and the Short Ribs! Most delicious desserts too and of course great fun cocktails!!!
Consistently excellent food and service. A hidden gem in Clayton.
Amazing food and really cool atmosphere! Highly recommend.
Service terrible. Had halibut… dry and sooo sallty. Same with short rib! Would not go back.
Food was fantastic, service was great!
As the place filled up the noise level became a challenge. Most of the customers struggled with using their inside voices.
Excellent service, the entire wait staff paid attention to our needs - we weren't ignored by the "it's not my table" attitude. Contemporary and very flavorful interpretations of traditional Italian pastas and entrees.
The food was high quality and outstanding flavors. Amazing wine selection. All the staff were friendly and helpful.
Great service. Food was just OK, nothing memorable.
The noise level in the middle of the dining room made it very difficult to enjoy a conversation with friends. It is not that difficult to tone down the noise. There are ways to put sound-buffering plaster on the ceiling and walls - not very expensive, really.
This restaurant is located in a part of Clayton where parking is easy. Had been here when it was some other restaurant years ago. Very friendly staff. Food was wonderful. I had the halibut with capers and it was very good. Salad and chocolate cake were both very good. It seems so good to be going out to nice restaurants again.
This is a great find! Absolutely beautiful restaurant, top Notch service, I think we had three different people serving our table, and the food was excellent! Pricing is very reasonable considering this is very much an upscale experience.
Beautiful place with excellent food. Service is exemplary as well.
One of the best places to dine.
Every dish was delicious, ambiance and service couldn’t have been better!
Our meals here recently were outstanding including service ambiance & food. A plus for the Clayton .
Should be considered among the best dining experience in the area. Much better & less pretentious than the new “ upscale” restaurants.
Great evening outdoors. Food and service and patio all great.
Excellent service as usual for a late dinner for 6. Chef is happy to split salads and pasta dishes and everything is delicious.
Another. Great meal. Trout, perfectly prepared; cinnamon, apple flan, delicious.
Fabulous food and great service. My daughter and I both had the fish special of the day and it was really great!
Delicious food, great service. Tomato salad was changed - still good but earlier version was delicious and one of the reasons we came tonight. I hope they change it back!
Great all around place, wonderful food
Well worth a visit, good meal , service & ambiance!
