“Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Perfect.
Drive up. Walk in. Be prepared for beautiful setting great service great food.
Everything we've had has been excellent.
A big surprise was their sushi on the Dine Around Seattle menu. Wow! Blew me away.
Gorgeous setting overlooking marina with Elliott Bay and West Seattle in the background.
We've been there for Sunday Brunch and a couple of times for lunch. Will be back soon for a birthday celebration dinner.
Can't wait.
A bit pricey but take advantage of first seating specials to ease the pain if that's an issue.

“expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a fantastic place for a special occasion. Too pricey for regular visits. Outstanding 5 star food and service. Gorgeous waterfront views...quiet and lovely. I'll definitely
return. This place is a very special treat!

“Brunch with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Palisade has a very good Sunday brunch - but only for special occasions or to bring visitors. The beautiful view of the city and marina is unbeatable. I think locals and visitors alike can enjoy it, although you do pay for the view!

For $28 you can get the buffet or for $33-$40, you get an entree and the buffet. The buffet includes chilled shrimp, crab legs, various salads, a pancake station, and desserts. The entrees range from salmon to the traditional eggs with toast and potatoes.

My husband and I both opted for an entree, which I'm not sure was the best choice. Believe me, we were stuffed when we left. The entrees were both good though. I opted for crab cakes which were very good, and my husband had steak and eggs. The steak was very flavorful and done beautifully. We took full advantage of the shrimp and crab legs. The pancakes, which they are supposedly known for their macadamia and banana pancakes, were just OK. Generally I think buttermilk pancakes are thicker but melt in your mouth, while these were a little inconsistently done and flimsy.

“Wonderful Views and Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Palisade is a short drive out of Seattle with wonderful views of the mountains in one direction and Seattle itself in the other. It's a large restaurant with around 240 covers but nevertheless manages a good ambiance and slick service. As you would expect it's seafood-centric with lobster, halibut, and scallops to the fore. The wine list is tremendous with a fine global selection together with the best that Washington and Oregon can offer.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We went during a sunny Saturday, and you can see the yachts and Mt Rainier from the window. The view was breath taking!

We followed the menu of Dine Around Seattle. Generally speaking, solid fusion food. However, we didn't like the dessert. TOOOOOOO sweet.
