    Everything was wonderful with the exception of the Caesar salad. I didn’t complain because I hoped it would grow on me but it never did. It was the most unusual Caesar I’ve ever had and it really didn’t taste good. I wish the menu had given more detail than I would have known not to order it.

    It was our anniversary and they had a Happy Anniversary card and rose petals on the table. They also gave us a free crème brûlée. The food was delicious. It was a beautiful view and our waitress was exceptional.

    Food was undercooked and brought out at room temp. Salmon dry, calamari appetizer way over sauced. Drinks for kids forgotten, taste was below average and nothing special for the name of Palisade. A huge disappointment from previous dining experiences. We were taken care of as far as cost but this did not satisfy the pallet nor the hunger.

    Used to be the best brunch buffet in Seattle. We would come here with the whole family every year we would visit, for the 10 years before COVID. Came back this weekend and apparently the buffet brunch has since ceased. The new brunch is only 5 items and only on Sundays. Disappointing to say the least. The menu options are mostly lunch and there are other restaurants with better food around the city. We tried the frittata, fish & chips, burger, steak sandwich, and prime rib hash, and no one finished any of the dishes. Unfortunately I don't think we'll be back here.

    Palisade may seem expensive when reviewing the menu. However, every bite of food was perfectly cooked to each of our liking. The server was pleasant and attentive without being bothersome. The music was just the right volume to cover other diners’ conversation without being loud enough to be bothersome. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will be back.

    The food wasn't up to their usual high standards. The drinks were poorly mixed. "The sourest lemon drop ever" is what my spouse said. Outdoor patio was closed, Hmm? Otherwise the servers worked hard, as usual, to keep a busier than normal restaurant running on Mother's Day. Even with so many managers wandering around overseeing.

    We used to love this place, but it was really not a great experience for Mother's Day brunch. We had early Brunch reservations for our family of 4. The restaurant and surrounding was stunning as always. - It took over five minutes from the time they delivered the first plate to the last plate of our party of 4. - My orders was incorrect, crab benedict instead of original egg's benedict. I was between the two, but the waiter convinced me the original was better but still brought and billed me for the more expensive crab benedict. I raised the issue with the waiter but agreed to keep the dish. - The last plate to come out to the table, my daughter's original benedict was 5 minutes after everyone else meals had been served and the egg's had slid off to the side. A deconstructed egg's benedict. - All of orders of egg's benedict were overdone and hard poached. I still tipped the customary 20% after all it was Mother's Day, but I think I have lost all desire to ever return to this once iconic Seattle Restaurant.

    The dining experience was overall very pleasant. Seafood dishes were better than the meat choices. The fillet mignon was underwhelming, and one plate of side couscous was burnt, but the rest of the dishes were all very tasty. Ambience was great, view fantastic, and server attentive. Reward points were easily redeemed and promptly applied to the check. Palisade is one of our family's "go-to" restaurants, and will continue to be.

    Lovely restaurant with a stunning iconic view of Seattle skyline and marina. Food selection is incredible. Quiet and relaxing environment. Service was great. Only criticism is that I ordered a dish with a gluten free modification, and they brought it to table with the gluten containing ingredient within the center of dish. They did quickly remake it, but in the past they have been so careful with food allergies. Hope to return and eat safely next time.

    There is a 5% “living wage tip” added to the bill which was a surprise. Why hide the fact that you don’t charge enough for your meals to pay the staff a living wage Just raise the price by the 5%. Then I would know the real price for dining at your restaurant. Then you recommend 18% for the server I an assume they don’t participate in the ‘living wage tip’ and that 18% is on the total bill including the 5% and the 10% sales tax Bringing the real tip to 25.7% on the meal I hate hidden fees!! Tipping has become a major issue and is effecting consumers dining choices

    Second time we ate here. A little busier this time than last time we dined. The service was not great, which was disappointing as we had wonderful service the first time we dined. A drink order was done incorrectly, my husband ordered a side of halibut with a salad and they ended up putting the fish on the salad, and our other guests dinner came out way later than our two meals. They did apologize with a free dessert but felt as though more could have been done, given the price we paid for the meal.

    We recently dined at Palisades for a special birthday celebration and were extremely disappointed with the entire experience. The service was incredibly slow, inattentive and it took ages for someone to take our order. When the food finally did come, I must admit that the seafood was fresh and delicious. However, everything else was quite pedestrian. The dishes were bland and lacked flavor. It was clear that little care had been put into the preparation. The potatoes and vegetables, in particular, looked like they came from a school cafeteria. Additionally, the prime rib was very fatty. It's such a shame because Palisades used to be top-notch, but it seems like the quality has declined. We used to celebrate birthdays and other celebrations here, but after this experience, we will no longer be doing so. To add disappointment, our waitress seemed very inexperienced. She struggled to answer basic questions about the menu and had to be shown on the wine menu what I wanted to order. Furthermore, she never brought bread to the table, which is basic expectation in most restaurants, we finally asked another waitstaff person for bread. I would not recommend Palisades to anyone looking for a pleasant dining experience. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    Amazing views but food quality has gone down hill. Have been coming for years but this time felt very off—salmon seemed frozen, mashed potatoes sat under heat lamp so long they became one cohesive mound, and server would disappear for long periods of time despite the dining room barely being half full.

    We had a birthday dinner (party of 2) last week and it was SO good. The interior decor is very nice - so open and appropriate for the location. The views of downtown Seattle and Mt. Rainier were spectacular, and the staff made sure we had a table with a great view for the occasion. Brian was our server, and he was amazingly kind and knowledgeable. We had oysters, crab legs, filet, halibut, salad and the crab & lobster bisque. All were cooked to perfection and such good quality. The crab legs had never met a freezer, so they were easy to eat. I would definitely recommend Palisade to anyone for a special occasion, client meeting, date night or if you're just looking for delicious seafood. It is not inexpensive, and while they are proud of their food...they should be because it is delicious and worth it. Also - not for nothing, there is AMPLE free parking, which is a commodity anywhere in the Seattle area, as well as a very large bar area so go have a cocktail before your reservation to start soaking up the beautiful atmosphere!

    Our guests from Maine raved about the scallops and prime rib. My mahi-mahi was over cooked and dry. I was hoping for the bourbon cherry sauce mahi of the winter. A sauce for the mahi would have been nice. The avocado shrimp topping was too much onion for me. I thought I was getting slices of avocado not guacamole. A wine butter caper sauce would have been nice or lemongrass something? Couscous was unappealing and bland. We’ll go again and do a better job of ordering as it’s a favorite restaurant.
