Great food!

The food served here is just incredible. Their menu changes all the time so you never know what you will be able to pick but almost always it is wonderful. They really know how to cater to your every whim also!

I was given a gift certificate for my birthday to the Palace restaurant for a Sunday Brunch which starts at 11a.m. I had been to the Palace for lunch before but never brunch. They had pineapple juice which was a treat. The omelet with crispy bacon, mushrooms and Swiss was very good except I didn't expect a whole roasted garlic... More

This is a fine dining restaurant, so the idea is to order the 5 course dinner, and do some wine pairings between courses. The menu is seasonal, innovative and delicious; however, do not expect large portions. You will be full by the end of the evening, but it will take over 2 hours. Menu items of note are the beef...

We loved our exceptional coffee, light and fluffy waffles, and perfectly-cooked eggs. The bacon was cooked just right--crispy and flavorful. Our server was very attentive, which we greatly appreciated. We highly recommend the Palace for breakfast.

We ate at The Palace and met John McLean, a fabulous Maître d'. We had Brenda as our Waitress, a consummate server! She took such wonderful care of us and did a phenomenal job with the wine pairing for our 9 course dinner. The quality of the wines for the price points of each wine was amazing!

I came here with some friends while in town for a baseball game at Great American. We made reservations over the phone after calling several other places beforehand that were all booked up. Upon arrival, we weren't sure if we fit in amongst the fancy decor, but the wait staff was very accommodating and didn't seem to care. I am... More

My husband and I went all out with the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairings this past weekend. We were very pleased. Chris and Chris made the night extra enjoyable by walking us through each delicious course. Wonderful job, guys! It's obvious that the restaurant has seen more crowded days (we were 1 of only 3 tables at 7:30... More

We dined there on Saturday evening and had a great experience. Food was delicious across the board. We did not order the 5 course, but did order 2 courses and dessert. Lamb, ribeye and sole were ordered and everyone tasted and raved about the meal. Service was top notch, as you would expect at the Palace. We will return the... More

We started with the sweet peppers filled with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. The bacon was a little crispy for my tastes and overall the flavor combination just wasn't for me. We also had the brussels sprouts. They seemed to be steamed, not roasted. I usually prefer the latter, but they managed to steam them nicely. They weren't too... More

It is so hard to find an Easter buffet that is not just a ton of food of mediocre quality. At the Palace, we had an excellent buffet brunch with friendly service that was there when we needed it without being intrusive. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. I do think that the room is a bit awkward and the decoration... More
