Comfortable, enticing and cozy, Pallet is a flawless design infused with tasty, inventive food. Early evening sees a sharp menu combined with soft light. Once the sun is down, we light loads of candles, dim the lights and turn up the music to create a vibe that really suits the space. Our communal tables urge neighborly interaction, and diners get a sense of shared experience with others in our city. Pallet also offers individual seating, and in the months that allow, enjoy dining on our inviting patio on Pierpont Ave.

Our highly experienced team is led by co-owners Esther Imotan and Chef Zachary "Buzz" Willey. The service, wine, cocktails and food are all equally attended to ensuring a top-notch experience each time you visit.

Food was very good but very tiny portions. Not just small but Tiny. Especially for the price. Over Priced for what you get.
Atmosphere was fun and inviting. Service was slow, not enough help for need.

The service was amazing and the ambiance was great but the food was very underwhelming. This was my second time here and the first time was much better, so I might be willing to try again some day.

One thing I can always expect from the Pallet is consistency. This place is amazing. The food, the team, the atmosphere and the overall experience. I have been coming here for a few years now and I always look forward to the next time!

One of the city's best and perhaps most overlooked eateries, with excellent service, an innovative menu and notable mixology happening at the bar. Comfortable and casual ambience and a relatively small but creative dinner menu.

I went to Pallet several times the first few years it was open and was very disappointed in the food. I decided to give it another chance after hearing a few of my friends rave about it.
We gave our general preferences to the waiter and then asked him to make the decision on several small plates to share and a wine/cocktail pairing.
The service, food and wine were magnificent. So glad that these elements are now up to par with the fabulous decor and ambiance. Fantastic experience all around.

You must eat here... as a New Yawkah, Pallet is as good or better then Bistros in NYC. If I’m ever back in SLC will def get back.

Pallet was amazing as always!! We came with a group of 10 and were so glad they could accommodate - we made reservations in advance. Dan was a wonderful server and took great care of us. Everyone loved the fresh and creative dishes. I know we'll be back again!

Took my girlfriend on a date. It was our first time at this restaurant. We really enjoyed the entire experience. Loved the food, especially the bread and appetizers. The service was excellent. Our server, Madalyn, was attentive and welcoming. The atmosphere was really cool, loved the decor and lighting. We will be back. Thank you.

The food was phenomenal! Even a bowl full of mushrooms tasted like the best thing on earth! The whole atmosphere of the place was great. It was a rustic yet modern look and we enjoyed the photos on the wall that highlight the city's history.

Wonderful ambience, waiters, and menu options. Food was cooked well and presentation was lovely, the food was just so salty that it took away from the flavor, and we couldn’t finish our meal.

Once again excellent food and service. We were running late and called restaurant directly and they assured us we would still have our table. Arrived and ushered to a cute table out on deck with pretty flowers around. Very nice evening!

This is my second attempt at this restaurant. I like the proximity to Vivent before a event. The food is pretty good but you pay for it. We ordered share plates for the table and there was no cadence to how the dishes were served. Our salad came first, then the main plates, then our appetizer cheese board ($29) at the end. They begrudgingly made a concession to withhold anchovies from the pasta dish for my daughter (one of the only kid friendly items on the menu) to accommodate her seafood allergy. It was a very small plate of noodles with parmesan for $18. I felt like I had to apologize for making them go out of their way to serve us a $250 meal before heading off to a concert. This was not the dinner experience I was looking -- Not fun and not welcoming. I will not return.

This place is AWESOME. Went for my birthday on Saturday. Jessica was our server and she was the best. Great recommendations and very vigilant, took really good care of us and good sense of humor as well. Will definitely be back.

Well presented appetizer, entrees, and dessert. Pork chop was cooked perfectly and the accompaniments on the plate were hot and complimented the chop. The burrata was consumed in it's entirety it was that good. Next time we are going to explore the cheeses and charcuterie. We will be back.

Very poor quality food. Overwhelmingly salty and pork chop was tough and hard to cut. Pasta was also very, very salty.

Service was okay. A funny thing is I sat by the front door and the hostess literally told every woman who came in that she liked their outfit. Totally fake.

Maybe it was the real housewives of Salt Lake City making a lot of annoying chatter, but for what we paid... I’ve had far better dining experiences in SLC for half the price.

The cocktails were amazing. The wine was good, the food was delicious but over priced.
