Great place to go with friends. We celebrated my daughter's birthday there. It was a lot of fun for her to try lots of dishes with the bottomless option.
Was in town traveling. This came as a recommendation from a friend. I was not disappointed!!! Did the bottomless brunch… an absolute must. Just make sure you make a reservation!!
Vegetarian option limited, overall great taste in food! Loved the music and the ambience. Service was definitely slow.
Food was mediocre and it was so loud inside we had to yell to talk.
Another great visit for brunch at Palette 22. I would definitely recommend getting the bottomless brunch. It’s worth it! Cheers!
What fun! Small plates from around the world and traditional brunch dishes with a twist! Great value!
Busser spilled a tray of drinks on me, the manager didn't even come up to apologize or offer anything to smooth over the situation. Our server acted like nothing happened. Worst customer service.
Great place to celebrate a birthday, but it’s a great place for any day.
Such a fun spot in the heart of Shirlington. International tapas, something for just about everyone!
Great place and service. The different types of food was awesome.
Thank you was my wife’s birthday and you made it very special
I loved the experience!!
Our server Diego was awesome and very knowledgeable of the menu.
Not as good as prior visits but still great !
Amazing brunch! Tons of variety and the small plates allows you taste it all.
So lovely! Attentive server and great food! We did the dinner bottomless and left with happy and full bellies!
The food was excellent and served quickly. The noise level is high! I would recommend Pallette 22 despite the Loyd music.
Don’t see it being worth it if you don’t go for the bottomless option. Price is a bit high but it’s unlimited. Some of the menu items were a bit underwhelming, but service was great and the small plate concept was loads of fun. I would come back.
I’ve been to Palette so many times and it’s been pretty consistent. Food and service is typically good. The French toast, apple pancake dish, breakfast tacos and shrimp tacos were amazing. I wasn’t crazy about where we were wearing and I asked my waiter if we could be moved. There were several seats available for two people. The waiter instructed me to go back outside and talk to the hostess, which was a bit off putting. I wasn’t sure why the waiter could not go talk to the hostess himself. Ultimately I remained seated where I was.
Great Service loved it
Some of the food was disappointing. While waitperson was fine, no one ever came to take dirty plates off the table which is necessary with small plate eating. Never gave us clean silverware, even between main meal and dessert. Very disappointing.
Service is always charming, fun and attentive. Great food - especially fun with groups
Great atmosphere, love the artists
This was our first visit and we chose to eat outside. That was marred only by the couple who elected to smoke cigarettes on the street corner...The restaurant offers many options for global cuisine. If we had been truly hungry, we would have opted for the "all you can eat" option; that not being the case, we each settled for two items plus one watermelon fresca. The food was tasty but not extraordinary. If we happened to be back in Shirlington, we might eat here again. But, there are many truly wonderful restaurants within two blocks, so ...
The food was absolutely great but some of the items that I ordered took a very long time to come out. I had to remind our waiter that I was waiting for things multiple times before I finally got them. The overall value is great aside from this. Bottomless brunch for less than 30 dollars was a steal!
We will be back soon. Truly an enjoyable Sunday brunch experience.
Great brunch options
This restaurant was recommended tom messy was looking forward to the having brunch there. The mini plates varied wildly in quality. The jerk chicken was dry, overcooked and unseasoned and even with the jerk condiment it was unlike any jerk chicken I have ever had. The same goes for the lumpia which is a Filipino springroll; overcooked and dry, like eating cardboard.
There were some notable dishes however, like the brisket empanadas, duck bao, taco bar, and brussel sprouts.
Excellent food. The patio was full, but not crowded. Our server was super friendly and quick. Palette 22 is one of my favorite restaurants - I recommend it to everyone.
Excellent food. Great service. We love this place for happy hour and dinner.
My friend and I needed or items quick to make a show and the team responded well to help us! We love happy hour here!!!
Great service and food!
The food here is always great, and for Hanz. He’s the best!!!!
Great all you can eat option and very reasonably priced! All of the dishes we tried were very flavorful and delicious . Patio is dog friendly!
Went for brunch. We did the bottomless brunch that included all menu items! Food was soo good a little noisy and very busy but overall great experience.
Service was great and the late night menu has wonderful selections!
Service was great and food was the best. Only a couple if dishes was hit or miss. The value was great and I will be back.
A great tapas-style alternative. New to this place, but three times in the past 90 days and all good experiences.

We had their brunch and it was an added bonus that the taco and waffle bar was included.
Family visiting from North Carolina. They loved it. They wanted to come back the next day.
