Went to Palette again after dining there on vaca last year. The food,views and service were as amazing as it was last year! We requested a lake view table-a definite must if you dine there!.Our server was great. We were dining with some friends who can be a challenge sometimes to dine with as they are incredibly picky/detailed on how... More

Went to Palette Bistro for business lunch. Very interesting and unique lunch menu. View from dining room over bay is fantastic. Bar is popular with more causal food. Advise checking menu since it changes often.

Beef soup more like a consume and beet salad were excellent, gazpacho was very good with a salsa twist to it and pizza was very thin crust and slightly untraditional in flavor

The outside of the building didn't look like much, but once we were inside...wow! We had a lovely table by a big picture window overlooking the garden and the lake. Heather, our waitress, was friendly and informative without being obsequeous. The menu was a creative delight. I had a flavorful portobello mushroom paninni with white fish curry salad. Everything is... More

We stopped in on a Sunday night for dinner. We learned it was happy hour and ordered a bunch of appetizers instead. Some were very good, but the mussels were so spicy we couldn't eat them. Our server was very nice and took them off of our bill. We decided not to stay for dinner. We were also disappointed that... More

Friday my sig. other and I enjoyed a well prepared lunch of paella, Caesar salad, smoked Whitefish salad and a Portobello Panini sandwich; delicious!! We would absolutely return for any meal, anytime and this chic intimate restaurant tucked away in the gas light district. Art abounds on the walls and of course, the large expansive windows affords a spectacular view... More

This is possibly the best venue in Petoskey ~ there's outdoor dining on a street side patio or balcony, a fun bar and bay side dining on the first or second floor with fabulous views of the water. Not your traditional soup salad app and entree but a great assortment of small (~$10) and large (~$20-$30) plates. Beef chicken fish... More

We went early for dinner, and it was really quiet. The views over the bay are great. The food was really good. The service good. The wine list was great. Parking was acceptable with meter parking out front and availablevif you are early.

Sunday Brunch with a great view of Lake Michigan was living life right. You would never know from the street entrance that this restaurant had dining in the back with large windows for such a scenic view. Two couples and we each had a different choice of eggs benedict; classic, scallops, crab cake and mushroom bleu cheese bread pudding. I... More

We stopped in with our two young daughters on a Saturday night. We got outdoor seating on the patio. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We had excellent salads and our small plates were delicious. An amazing chocolate desert that was like a molten lava cake. This place is well worth a visit.
