Very small portions. Food had no flavor. Service was ok. Had to go get something to eat elsewhere when we left because we were still hungry. Drinks were mostly juice. Will not return.
Overall we had a good experience at Palette 22, but it was just that a good experience. The table we were initially sat at was definitely not clean, and I had to go back inside and ask to be resat at a different table if possible. Our waitress was nice and helpful, but the service was always a bit slow and lacking. Our food runner also clearly did not want to be at work! However, food-wise everything was good! There was definitely room for improvement still, for example, the pork belly in our pork belly bao buns was overcooked but the flavors were good. The middle of the churros was a bit undercooked, but fried dough is always delicious! We did still have a good meal, just not a great meal.
The food was delivered hot and fresh... our group really enjoyed dinner.
Fabulous experience! I would recommend to a friend without hesitation.
Fun and lively, love the energy but the waiter kept forgetting and was extremely slow. The food was not bad but very dry cheeseburgers and chicken sliders. You get your money’s worth for sure.
Bottomless brunch was fantastic- our server, Natalie, was great and all our dishes came out quickly and were delicious.
Beautiful day. Lots of choices on the brunch menu. Mimosas and Bellinis are wonderful. Excellent pick for guaranteed deliciousness.
The food was amazing - It always is. Our server was super friendly and the service was quick.
The pre-covid menu was far superior to the current fare. Most items simply don't sound appetizing and it seems like it used to.be made to order but now it just seems like dishes are pre-made and reheated. The music is louder than it used to be because I distinctly remember sitting in the dining room and easily having a relaxed conversation across a four top but this evening I couldn't hear my husband sitting directly across from him.
Food was excellent and fast service. The “all you can eat” option was worth it. Got to try everything for a very reasonable price.
Came here for a last minute first date, and because of the holiday, we were able to book a reservation very quickly. Once seated, it took a while for our server to take our order but once he finally did, he was polite. Our food came out pretty quickly and was good. It wasn’t too loud and the ambiance was nice…overall we enjoyed ourselves and will be back!
Great restaurant! The food was good and the service was great as well! Definitely recommend
Fun place with lots of artwork to look at and good food
Great Brunch menu! Good variety with options for meat eaters, vegetarians, gfree.
Get the Bottomless Brunch; it is such an amazingly delicious value!
Food was DELICIOUS
Bottomless dining was the perfect option for our birthday celebration
Service was prompt and thorough. Prices are reasonable.
I love this place! Food is fantastic, and they are doing a great job with outdoor heating during the fall and winter months -- had a very cozy meal in 45 degree weather!
Variety and quality of food was excellent!!
Tara was excellent as our server.
A perfect brunch location. The food is amazing. So much flavor with an Asian and Latin theme. An artsy Greenwich Village New York vibe. This part ( Bohemian grunge decor) is not my taste but the food makes you forget the exterior. This is a must see.
We had a great brunch yesterday. Food was amazing as always. We go here at least once a week to dine or brunch. Favorite place to eat in Shirlington! Also, Ray or server was amazing. Gracious and very upbeat personality. On point with service and had a wonderful attitude! Thanks for making our day Ray and Palette 22!
I love this place, the food is always amazing and servers are all ways friendly and attentive.
This place is a staple brunch place for me in the DMV area. The bottomless brunch is unmatched
The bottomless dining was a great option to try a little of everything and not spend too much!
This place was amazing! The food, price, music, and the device was great!! 10/10 would recommend!!
The menu is eclectic and delicious- we loved every dish we ordered! Great service, too.
We ha d a friend in from out of town and we took him here for dinner. He loved the food as do we every time we eat there. Kayla, our server , was amazing, polite and professional! Thank you!
This was the first time trying out Palette 22. With a creative background, I loved all the art everywhere, and even the artist actively painting at the entrance! My friend and I selected the "bottomless" dinner option, and were completely stuffed by the end of the meal. I particularly enjoyed the Bao Buns. The waiter and manager were attentive to my allergies, and with the chefs were able to accommodate me. And the dessert empanada was delicious. Thank you!
Food was amazing. Portions were not too large nor small, just perfect. Our waiter was Amanda, and she was wonderful. My daughter and I had a lovely time. Thank you.
The food is amazing here, all small plates so you can try many different options. And they are large enough so you only 2-3 to feel filled.
However, the background music is SO loud, we could barely hear ourselves talk. When we asked the server about possibly seeing if it could be turned down, he said, “oh, I don’t have control of the music.” He was at our table every two minutes until we placed the order and then pretty disappeared after that, we had to chase down other serves just to pay the bill.
It has a cool art atmosphere, but with so many choices in Shirlington, we probably won’t be retuning.
Pretty good food! The shrimp and grits were amazing!
We missed a lot of the old dishes palette had to offer (i.e. the mexican street corn) but it was nice to come back after a year or so and the service was great! (Please bring back the street corn!!)
My boyfriend and I went to Palette 22 for brunch. Every dish we ordered was delicious and came out quickly. Our server was so nice and made sure we were comfortable. We will definitely be coming back to Palette 22!
Service was outstanding. Food was amazing full of flavor. Loved the portion sizes. Loved the mimosas. Definitely will come back.
I love having girls brunch here. The bottomless brunch is the way to go, you get to taste perfect portions of any and everything on their menus with this option. Their brunch drinks are amazing as well, love this place.
Initially the food came out fast but then slowed down and there were constant confusion with servers bringing food to our table that was meant for the people beside us and vice versa. And my guest and I were accused to taking the other tables food when in fact they got our food. But we didn’t complain and despite that I would go back
I loved the small plates. It allowed me to try a lot of different dishes.
The food was great. Bottom Brunch is amazing. The tiny Mimosa are delicious. Definitely my favorite Brunch location!!!
