They have been out of business since Oct 2013. They are OUT OF BUSINESS. They are out of business. I am typing this only because I can't post unless I have a 100 character minimum. They are out of business.

Palate never really hit the lofty target it set for itself -- one thing would be excellent, another woefully off the mark, and not just the food. Withal, that plus a tough economy have finally forced it to shutter. Fans have only one more week...More

The food was decent and a bit over prices. Service was lacking, we kept having to ask for things that should have been automatic. Would not go back. There are many other places in Newtown worth another visit.

A limited variety of food from main courses to burgers. The burger was outstanding ,definitely one of the best I had in the area, I would return just for this. The crab cake sandwich was just as good. Be aware, this is a BYOB.

3 friends & I dined for a B’day gathering at this BYOB. Disappointing! At 6:00p.m. they were already out of 2 entrees & it wasn’t crowded & just opened at 5:00p.m. The Duck confit/local cheese plate appetizer was more or less thrown together & presentation...More

While our server was a little pretentious, though nice, the food was the real star. They use meats and produce from local farms as much as they can, which I love. The lunch menu was a little pricy too - the lunch sandwiches cost more...More
