Super food, lovely setting

Palisades is one of our favorites in the Seattle area. On lovely days like today the marina setting and view of Seattle's waterfront is unequaled. The calamari is heavenly, the drinks superbly done and the Steelhead and Surf and Turf entrees fantastic. Wait staff friendly and very attentive. Highly... read more

The setting is spectacular and the food and service was a worthy match. The crab salad i had as a starter was spectacular and definitely the gourmet Hi-light of a 10 day business trip to the area. the prices were a little on the high side but this was the only place I visited on the trip that i vowed...

Its been my experience that many restaurants at touristy locations fail to deliver great food or service, because they rely customers to be overwhelmed by the vistas and forget about the food. (The old Windows on the World restaurant at the World Trade Center in New York was a classic example of this behavior.) But in this case, Palisade actually... More

This is one of those restaurants with amazing food and spectacular views. Located in the heart of the Elliott Bay Marina, most tables have a view of the boats as well as Puget Sound, the Olympic mountains, Downtown Seattle and much more. As great as the views are, the food is also great as is the service. From steaks to... More

Whether visiting or living in Seattle, don't overlook this special place for a wonderful waterfront restaurant. The view is spectacular even in so-so weather. The dining experience is top-notch. It's a more high-end restaurant, but it's definitely not stuffy or pretentious. The staff is attentive and well trained. Our food was delicious. I had plank roasted salmon. As a Seattle... More

We were immediately greeted by the hostess who tried to accommodate our desire for a table at the window. We did not wait long and had a pleasant walk through the restaurant over a bridge that is over a "stream". Just lovely. Of course, the view of Elliot Bay was terrific, we saw the city and Space Needle as well... More

This restaurant is about 20 minutes outside Seattle proper and affords a spectacular view overlooking the Elliott Bay marina, as you look back towards Seattle. Great views of the Space Needle, the Seattle skyline, with mountains in the background. It is a big, open, comfortable restaurant and my wife & I visit each time we are in the Seattle area.... More

Beautiful view and great service but the food was mediocre. Seems the menu prices are higher than our visit a few months ago, and we still had the added expense of "living wage" on the bill.
