Great place to share small dishes, but go for the Dahlia Coconut Cream Pie

Recently had dinner with three business colleagues at the Palace. Other than it being a bit dark and loud, the environment was warm and inviting. We shared a variety of small plates. Our favorites included the shashito peppers, beets and parsnips soup. I had the trout cooked over the wood grill... read more

Some of TDs offerings are not as good as others. Palace, while a little loud, had a fine, varied menu and was thoroughly enjoyable. The waitstaff was attentive and not overbearing. We went on Sunday evening and parking on the street was abundent.

I visited the Palace Kitchen restaurant because it was the only kitchen I could find open at midnight . We had the Swarma special that could only be ordered after 10 pm. It was horrible. I didn't finish it. Something tasted rancid. Waitress didn't want to wait for us to decide on what we wanted to drink. As she asked... More

Stopped in for a round before our Hot Tuna acoustical show at Deimetrios. Crowded on a Sat. evening but we found 3 spots at the bar. Drink order quickly taken and BONUS.....a big jar of pistashios to go with my excellent Beefeaters martini straight up. Food coming out of the kitchen (which you can see into from the bar) looked...

We got the information at hotel desk Westin, and they booked a table for us as well. The menu had a lot of exciting dishes, and we chose a bief, which really good! The wine chosen: Rabaja Barbaresco 2008, excellent together with the grilled meat. Their beers were also nice. Check this place out!

Our group happened along this place after a recommendation from the concierge at the hotel we were staying at. We arrived on a Saturday night at 9:00pm and were able to get a table within 20 minutes. The menu has a lot of small plates that can be shared. We tried the ravioli, grilled shrimp, and peppers. They were all... More

Exceedingly well-prepared and tasty small dishes. Delightful staff. Popular spot, a bit crowded and noisy.

Tom Douglas is the king of Seattle Chefs and Palace Kitchen didn't disappoint. Family was in town after a cruise and wanted to go someplace "Local". Setting and location were great. Appetizers were best part (ham and cheese ravioli, goat cheese, shishito peppers). Hamburger and Marbled Salmon entrees were very good as well. Service was spot on. Noise level is... More

Last few times it's not hitting the spot. Burger not as juicy and bun not as buttery and sinful. I always send people our way but for the burger and diversity of your menu but last few times I have not been mind blown. Your pasta was under seasoned as well. You guys need to get back to what you... More
