Palette provides a colorful dining experience with an American inspired menu featuring in-house cut steaks and 21-day aged 100% black Angus beef.

As we inherited a space as historical as the former Mautz Paint Company warehouse, we had to do it justice. We kept our building’s architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches. We wanted to keep the space faithful to its roots; filled with hues of colors and textures reminiscing of times when the East Washington corridor was a booming industrial area in the city.

Our menu features steak cuts made in-house, chef’s masterpieces, artisan salads and soups, along with a unique beer and hand-crafted cocktail selection.

    Said hello to the hostess 3x and all she said was..”do you have a reservation?” Asked if we could be seated outside instead since there were plenty of tables available. It was a hard no. When we left those same tables stayed empty the entire time. Old fashioned was awful. Bourbon pour was barely a fingers worth. Both drinks took forever. The food even longer. Kitchen was slow. Fries were hot and burgers were cold. We ordered another drink and they never came.

    Palette has recently changed its menu. We all tried a new appetizer and three new entrees. All were outstanding!! The ahi tacos for sharing was a great small bite for an appetizer. Our son had the maple pork belly sandwich, which he described as “amazing”. My wife had the new Salmon dish which she loved. I had the new St. Louis style ribs with the chipotle citrus bbq sauce… wow so good!!! As always service was top notch!!

    We enjoyed a lovely meal starting with the fresh lettuce wraps which had a flavorful blend of spices for our starter. We shared the Espetadas and enjoyed the complementary flavors of the beef, chicken, corn, and Brussels sprouts. We appreciated the attentive service and look forward to returning.

    Food and service very good. Atmosphere relaxing. Lots of hard surfaces, but didn’t feel too loud to have conversation.

    Hungry and tired after a long g day of travel, Palette was the easiest choice. Service was polite and attentive, food was ok, nothing special, portions were small for the price, but expected at a hotel restaurant. Manager gave me a small sample of a wine, since my first choice was no longer on the menu

    Our server was extra attentive with our order and communicating gluten-free to the kitchen. I got a passionfruit and caramel cocktail that was AMAZING. Highly recommend that and the cojita corn.

    Loved the experience I can’t wait to go back. Went for my birthday and I loved the food and was a bit shocked by the generosity that you can’t seem to find at a decent restaurant in today’s society. It was a really great experience.
