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.

Booked a late dinner and the food did not fail to impress. The cocktails were hand crafted and innovative. Some amazing wines are available on their small, but varied and well thought out list.
The check came, tucked into an old copy of the Book Of Mormon, in German. I found this to be odd and a little confusing. I speak enough German to know what it was. Not sure what the message was. We don't have check folios? Homage to the LDS influence in SLC? It fell flat and was just weird. Get check folios, keep putting out awesome food and drinks.

We showed up early and took a couple chairs at the bar, needless to say we did not end up at our table.
We had the chef's tasting menu, 5 courses I believe - I wish I wrote down each and every one of them as they were all equally amazing!

Wonderful food, exceptional service!! We were hesitant to try it out because of its location - it is on a sketchy block of town... but we are so glad that we did! The environment was wonderful once inside. Our dinner was beautifully plated, and the perfect size and portion. We are pretty critical foodies, but we loved every bite! We will be returning for sure! Thank you!

My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary and they made us feel really special when we walked in and gave us a dessert! I had the scallops and thought they were delicious. My husband had the bison and he liked it but it was a bit to rosemary for his liking. We shared the truffle Yukon’s and they were our favorite!!

The food was impeccable as always. It was very busy. We circumvented a long wait for seating time by making a reservation, THANK GOD. The design and decor set a great mood but the ambience felt a little strained, not too bad for 8pm on a Saturday. I know it was a busy night, so all things considered it was still a great experience. We did have to wait a long time for mixed drinks, not water however, and it took a little longer than usual for our food but when it came it was perfect- hot, well composed and absolutely full of flavour. I would recommend to people who are not fond of the loud, late night weekend vibe to place an earlier reservation. All in all... Can’t wait to go back!

What an amazing find! I was in town with a buddy for some skiing and wanted to try Pallet from the moment I read about it. We came in with high expectations and they were definitely exceeded! This was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had.

We had the Asparagus appetizer and the Bass and Zabuton main dishes. While the Asparagus and Bass were amazing, the Zabuton was by far the culinary highlight.

Topping things off was the excellent service from "Josh" and getting to meet and chat with Esther.

I'll be dining at a Pallet any time I visit SLC in the future!

Cheers!

My first time dinning at Pallet. I must say my experience there was great to say the least. My date and I shared the scallop ceviche, oh My! Amazing and beautifully put together. Also we enjoyed parm/garlic potato wedges served with a truffle aoli, yum! For the main the scallop dish, it was good but nothing to special going on with the dish , good none the less. Desert passion fruit and coconut sorbet to Finish the meal, very nice, delicious.
Jessica your server was awesome as guiding us through the menu and very sweet, knowledable, a very good ambassador to the brand. Must try Pallet

I chose Pallet to take an important friend out to show her my appreciation. Everything about the experience was perfect! I’ve been here before and each time it seems better than the last. Our server, John I believe, was attentive and made sure every need was taken care of. His recommendations we full and passionate. The food was amazing and beyond expectations. We will be there again soon.

Very cool old building.

Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant has been open six years - she had been there since the restaurant opened.

Food was great. We had the cheese board with a couple of appetizers and split the bass entre. The tres leches cake was a great finish. When they tell you that the large French press is large, believe them!

we went to Pallet on our first night in downtown SLC. We had a recommendation from an acquaintance and an internet search confirmed that this was one of the SLC top rated"restaurants for discriminating foodies...i.e. those who don't want pub food - burgers,pasta, pizza, etc. It turned out to be a great dinner and was nice start to the trip.

The food was good and well presented although small portions and expensive. Our biggest complaint was our server- we don’t know if she was under the influence of something or what but she took our order, delivered our food, we ate it and had dishes removed and then she came back again and asked if we had decided on what to eat!!?? She did this with the appetizer course, main and dessert course. It was quite strange. It is also quite dark in the restaurant. We won’t go back.

This was our 3rd trip to Pallet. Loved the bass with seasonal vegetables and the cheese board was exceptional. BF had the elk...gorgeous presentation. The dry spell cocktail with fresh pineapple, sage, and gin was worth the wait. There were a few loud tables; usually it's a bit quieter.
