    The view and the staff were great but everything was lukewarm (even the coffee) and the owner has one of those obnoxious “5% Living Wage” surcharges on the bill. Thankfully they didn’t break out their electricity expenses too.

    Table location was too close to drink/sink service station and was distracting with staff activity occurring around it. Felt rushed by waiting staff to order throughout the meal. One main entree was undercooked. They did cook it longer asap but the outing became disjointed with one guest eating and the other guest waiting. In many restaurants these type of issues occur and are acceptable but when it’s a fine dining restaurant that was selected to celebrate a special occasion for the guest, one expects much more in a dining experience, food preparation and table service.

    Overall experience was fair. The last two times once early Dec and now early Jan we’ve noticed a definite drop in level of service from staff. Waits on drinks each time has been 15+ min, even when asking for a refill, Needing to ask for steaknives, menu missing one of two pages, etc. Not the level of service we typically have experienced - I think we are now looking for a new monthly date night location…

    Palisade has lost a lot of what made it a great dining experience. The restaurant seems very cold and lacking of character. The service was poor, the bisque was cold, the sandwich lacked flavor. We asked for the food to be packaged up and it never came back to the table. Overall it was a generic dining experience. I could have been anywhere.

    We dine at Palisade for special occasions once or twice a year. We return because the view across the marina and over Elliot bay accompanied by a very good menu remained consistent in our most recent experience. The service was good, but not what I would have expected for a nice birthday dinner. Our server was cordial and helpful. However, the extended waits between courses, the need to flag the server down, rather than timely check-ins, and the her failure to observe the birthday table tent placed by the host, probably indicated an overworked, understaffed situation at Palisade. I understand that many have had difficulty re-staffing after the pandemic, but I expected more from Palisade.

    Our experiences was not indicative on any prior visit we've had a Palisade. It took 10 minutes to receive menus, at which point we ordered drinks. Drinks didn't arrive until after our appetizers. Oysters had pieces of shell in them. Steaks were under cooked. And while our server was doing her best, she seemed to be overwhelmed / under resourced and so the overall service and experience was poor.

    We chose Palisade to celebrate my Dad's 80th with relatives from out of town. Views and ambiance can't be beat. Food is reliably good, especially seafood. Sadly, service on this visit was lacking. Out of 7 people, two waited for a very long time for their drinks (2 reminders to staff) and one did not receive his salad until all the rest of us were done eating ours. Waiter was friendly but seemed always in a hurry. Had to ask for more bread and water while waiting a very long time for our entrees. Maybe the waiter had too many tables? Restaurant was not crowded / particularly busy. We had many different staff bring things to our table, usual after we flagged someone down to ask. They didn't remove extra glasses or finished plates from table until we asked. With dessert they didn't bring us spoons, so we were left waiting to eat it. One broken glass by waiter at our table, luckily it was empty. Worst was when the bill came, it had large errors (2 extra $52 entrees tacked on!!) That felt almost insulting after the poor service. Service issues aside, the food was excellent, especially the scallops and the chef's special swordfish.

    A very small bowl of salad and soup, a seafood salad, two sodas, two coffees.$87 all in. Most disturbing was the instant decaf they provided for $4 . I know prices have gone up, but I will likely not be back. Three tables full at 12:30, I guess I am not alone.

    Such an excellent location to end the new year. The staff made this a successful evening and brought such positive vibes and ambiance. A special shout-out to our server, Morgan, who made sure our guests particular diet needs were met (celiac), and to Shawn who as always goes above and beyond for all patrons. Shawn brings his personality and attention to detail to every guest, and made sure the restaurant was ready to ring in the New Year! The food was excellent - all the salads, appetizers, sake cod, fillet and shrimp, all cooked to perfection and arriving together. Just smooth all around. Thank you to the wonderful cooks and staff who stayed late to make it all possible!!! Palisades is back, and everyone should come check it out in 2023!

    We enjoyed our food and the festive atmosphere. We miss the piano music that used to play in the restaurant. The piped in elevator jazz was too loud and didn't match the mood very well. There was Frank Sinatra in the bathroom and I wish that would have been playing on the floor of the restaurant.

    Had to wait for our reservation, server was almost nonexistent, had to ask another server for service. Paid the bill through their payment system, was in the lobby waiting for our Uber ride when the manager approached us to advise our debit card transaction had not gone through so presented my card once again, if not for waiting for Uber, the evening would have been on the house!!! Go to Daniel’s Broiler!!!

    Food is just okay, but poor for its price. The lobster tail on palisade’s sea food shared plate is really old, some parts are hard to chew; tuna was okay fresh, shrimp is great but not as good as it could be, sauce are all regular stuff from grocery stores. Entree had filet mignon, king crab, and crab stuffed shrimp: filet mignon asked for medium rare 7oz it was dry, outside was super dry and hard to chew that reach almost inside of meat, due to the size, it could cook less longer. King crab is good, pretty fresh, the crab stuffed shrimp is good flavor but shrimp is okay like regular shrimp. Service is okay, BUT we had an incident, I guess they don’t clean the water cups between customers. Value is okay, because ambience is good, but not very good at night, if it’s sunny days might be.

    I took my mother and friend (in their 70’s and 80’s) for a nice Christmas dinner at 8:00. Many empty seats and tables yet we waiting over 30 minutes to be seated. No one checked on us or apologized for the wait. Finally I asked if we could sit in the bar bc it was after 8:30 and we were starving. They said “oh wait…your table is ready” then we were seated. We got water and menus immediately then proceeded to wait another 17 minutes for someone to take our order. The food was not good. I ordered a medium rare stake and it came grey, dry and charred. Like jerky. Then I asked for another steak and it took another 20 minutes to get it. My mom and friend ordered salmon and steak and they had two bites then left it. The entire experience was bad and sad. The restaurant is beautiful and an institution but WOW it was really bad. And so expensive. None of us will ever eat there again. Came home and ordered pizza.

    Too bad they add on a 5% surcharge. Why? They should just raise their prices to a level that covers their overhead. Food was average, which is expected on Xmas day, best thing I had was the bread pudding. The creme Brule was a fail so they should not have put it out. Service was excellent though and hostess were polite and efficient

    We waited for an additional 35 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Our appetizers came out way before our wine, which we ordered first. The oysters were so poorly shelled there were large fragments of shell all over and the oysters themselves were all chopped up in pieces. The menu they offered was extremely limited, which is totally fine but there was no mention of that anywhere. Not when we made the reservation and not when they physically called to confirm it. We were told there was a time limit of an hour and 45 minutes but because the service was so slow we were there for over 2 and a half hours. When we finally got our entrees they were cold and I ended up sending my scallops back. When the manager brought out new ones they were hot but almost completely raw and gray in color. Our server only came to our table herself 3 times in all the time we were there, all of our food was delivered by the carrier staff which in itself was totally fine, but we just never saw our actual server so we couldn't order more drinks. Also the restaurant is now charging an additional 5% on all checks to offset the $15 min wage they're required to pay... which for that establishment is absolutely absurd. Our entire experience was almost $300 and there was not one part of the meal that we enjoyed. I used to go there all the time for special occasions and it's fallen so far down hill. For that kind of money just go to John Howie in Bellevue and actually be treated well. I will never go back to palisade. I will also say that I understand it was Christmas night and they were clearly busy, but there was no organization and zero communication while we sat at our table. Just a bad experience.

    Overall the food was good. The grilled shrimp seemed a bit cold like it sat out too long before serving. Only half the deserts were available. The server said the bread pudding came with a scoop of ice cream but it only had whipped cream. Overall, good service. There was an initial wait before we were able to get our first drink order. But the server was great about getting refills when desired. There was a miscommunication on the rewards program which I initially agreed to join. When I received the bill, I noticed that there was a $25 loyalty fee buried in bill. The server spent the time to explain the program so I may have missed or misunderstood the details on the fee at the time. It is absolutely ridiculous that this fee is being added considering my bill is over $500 and I’m expected to add a %15-20 gratuity on top of that. The server was very good about taking it off once I declined the program. I really loved coming to Palisade over the years but I find that the loyalty program scheme a bit insulting and I may choose to go somewhere else in the future.
