The service was absolutely insulting. We arrived at 8 o'clock and by 9 o'clock were given our check and told we won't like there open mic night. We were not the "right kind of people" and wouldn't like it. So interesting that the LBGT community is so sensitive to descrimination but obviously have no problem discriminating against an older heterosexual... More

The place is a throwback to a forgotten era. Drinks are great and priced right. The bar atmosphere is awesome. Dark, red light, just waiting for the vampires to come out. Has a ton of quirk that you must experience.

The limited menu was heavy with fried foods. I had fish and chips which were very greasy. My wife had a salad which was less than memorable. I have eaten at the Palace many times over the years with some different ownership; always with much better food. Despite the excellent service, it will be difficult for me to return. Very... More

Went for the bar, thus didn't sample food. Visited on a friday night before cover kicks in. Lots of regulars...expected some one to shout out "Norm"! Arrived before crowd and sat at bar. Attentive service, took time to chat with us. Tried local firewater from Taos...quiet enjoyable. The bar itself, could easily see myself in the 1800's. Dark surrounded by... More

This place is a trip. Their logo which is a combination of horseshoe and lady's leg in fishnets comes from it's location adjacent to Burro Alley, and it's former life as a brothel. You step inside to dim lights, red velvet wall paper and lounge music. Don't turn away, step in farther. The meal was truly excellent! This is somewhat... More

The service was great!!! The enchiladas were more than terrible & over priced! My salad was good & fish was great. But, very little food. Over priced for all food.

We happened on this because it was raining, and we were standing outside, and out came hostess Allison. She won us over and we went in. I later found out this was formerly a saloon and ?brothel? It was a little gaudy and ugly, for sure. It was sort of cool, but then they plastered tacky halloween decorations all over... More

The Palace rudely cancelled our reservation upon arrival saying that they'd a private party instead and offered no assistance in making alternate arrangements - 2-hours before a concert. Rude & indifferent staff -- Don't ever go there!!!

We had dinner at Palace Restaurant and Saloon tonight. We shared the Antipasti Platter and the Ravioli. There were only 2 of us and the Antipasti Platter really had enough food for 4. A bonus was the fact that it was delicious. We had to try the Ravioli as it is made with rabbit. There were four ravioli which doesn't... More

The dining room combines classic elegance–chandeliers, historic photographs, tasteful art to create a comfortable, lively space for an unforgettable meal.
