The problem was it seems like most of Seattle's restaurants and bars stop serving food around 10, which is horribly early, especially on a night like that.

Amazing Halibut and Burgers! Got on the list with not too long a wait - just enough time for a cocktail.

I went there in a late March Saturday night, did not need to make reservation, got a window seat after 5 mins wait in the bar. The waiter is very nice, helped us cut the Trout, very friendly experience, as for food, i love the entree pig tail, very crispy and the fat is not fatty at all, it melted... More

In Seattle, it can seem like all of the restaurants close at 6 p.m., maybe 8. But Palace actually adds to their menu at 10 p.m. I had the whole trout which was tasty. Lots of great choices for drinks. Waitress was very nice.

I love everything about this place, with one exception. Gorgeous interiors, friendly professional service, and beautifully prepared food. The grilled cod fillet with potato chowder was exceptional, as was pork with sausage and root vegetables. We loved the rubarb basque cake for desert. Very solid wine and cocktail list. My single complaint: consider changing the music! The sumptuous candlelit ambiance... More

Rotisserie chicken to rival any in Paris! The Plin is a ravioli-like dish from northern Italy with pork and chard in little pillows of handmade dough and we could not stop eating it. Brussels sprouts with apple and bacon in savory jus were as good as any I have had in a restaurant. Wine by the glass was much better... More

Went here based on reviews. Restaurant is attractive and has good energy. Our group sat at the bar and enjoyed complimentary pistasios. Ordered the goat cheese fondue. Bland and bread was burnt.next the hamburger. Nothing special and very over priced. I would not recommend this restaurant, many better places in area.

This bustling place was just a block away from our hotel and, as we had arrived late, has a late opening kitchen. The menu is short but offer a good burger. And good it was! Great meat, shoestring fries, awesome pickled tomatoes in the garnish. I came in hungry and left happy and satisfied. Very good service, too.

Im type of a vegetarian, they didn't have options, you had to order something and take what you didn't want off. Service was amazing, but food wasn't. We ordered a spaghetti with squash and nuts, it came wrong. Squash wasn't peeled, spaghetti was mixed with fettuccine and asian noodles, disgusting, some nuts came with shell, almost broke a tooth.
