“Worth the Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We were staying in downtown Seattle and we had a great limo driver come and pick us up and bring us back! Good thing, since it was pouring rain! The restaurant sits right on the water and overlooks Seattle. We had excellent server and the food was excellent. Our table was overlooking the water and was so pretty. Although it was a little pricey, it was worth it. Obviously a chef who cares about the quality and presentation of the dish!

“Worth your while”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

I've been going to Palisades since the early 1990's. Two years ago we moved our boat into the adjacent Elliott Bay Marina, which has made Palisades even that more convienient. The atmosphere is very unique when compared to other Seattle restaurants. The brook running through the restaurant stocked with live fish, crab and lobster is great fun for both children and adults. The large varity of seafood on the menu provide plenty of options for any pallet. The wine selection covers all the basis. At the vary least stop by and say high to Romie and Chop at the bar.

Nice good quality food. Lots of Fire Fighters like to visit here. Make sure that you are aware you are going to an upscale place.

“Always Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Beautiful night time views of Seattle sky line, just a bonus because the food is excellent and well presented. Good service but not bothersome.

“Can't Beat the View and the Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Visited Palisade for Seattle Restaurant Week and we truly enjoyed our experience watching the sunset on Seattle downtown and the lights come up in the skyscrapers. For the food--Palisade's lobster and crab bisque appetizer struck us as an excellent choice--very tasty. We thought the entree' and dessert selections were limited, but our prime rib turned out fine and we liked the potato and leek side with it very much. The salmon and rice I saw on other diners' plates seemed bland had only moderate appeal even though we often order salmon. The dessert selection was disappointing--nothing interesting there. We did note that the prices for the regular dinners have increased substantially and my favorite, the pupu tower, now costs a whopping $32! But for a romantic place to dine in a unique structure architecturally with one of the finest views in Seattle, it can't be beat.
