My boyfriend took me to The Palace for a Valentine's Day meal. We had the special Valentine's Day 5 course dinner. The experience itself was just amazing! I'm a very picky eater and was a little worried because the menu is pre selected but I went in with an open mind and decided to try everything and just enjoy the... More

Top restaurant for sure. If you are in to experience top quality food this is the place. I did not intend whatsoever to have desert but after the quality of the meal i had to try it and I was right. The chocolate cake is amazing. Billy, my server, was professional, courteous and well versed. I'd come back any time.

We were so excited to try this restaurant, but sadly we were disappointed. First let's start with the good. Our server Brenda was amazing! She explained every wine and dish in detail. She made us feel comfortable and special at the same time. Now the not so good. We had reservations at 8:45 but we were not seated until 9... More

Great food and great service--what more could you ask for? We had only been there one previous time (a year prior) yet our server remembered us, which we found impressive. A great night!

First time stop at the Palace bar area on Friday night. There is a small bar food menu - sandwiches, salads and a couple of entrees, generally range from $15-26. Only happy hour special is half off glasses of wine - nothing on beer? I ordered a Bourbon Barrell Ale for $8. We ordered jerk chicken tacos and creole shrimp.... More

A lovely venue for a special night out. The Palace features a tasting menu with 3, 5 or 9 courses. We opted for three, which was plenty for us (I even brought home a portion of my salmon entree). In addition, we were surprised with a few additional courses, small tastings which really made the meal fun. I wasn't crazy... More

My husband and I came to The Palace for Restaurant Week. We had several courses. The menu was fantastic with Pork Belly, king crab pot pie, filet, Marlin, French toast dessert and creme brûlée. Check out the pictures. The flavors were fantastic. Small mid-courses were presented between meals. It was a fantastic experience and looking forward to their take on... More

They need to just close this place and completely refurbished the menu. We ate breakfast as part of our hotel package but it was a complete waste. My knife had dried food on it and looked like it had gone through the grinder.Limited on beverages, they did not have hot chocolate available for breakfast. Our sausage links were still pink...

We dined at The Palace during restaurant week and it was disappointing in a number of ways. This was once elegant dining that I would now classify as what you might expect in a hotel. We began the evening with a bottle of wine. The waiter opened the bottle and in doing so spilled wine from the bottle onto the... More

We dined last night with another couple at The Palace Restaurant.The service was excellent and the maitre'd, John McLean, assured us of a wonderful dining experience. We ordered the 3 course dinner and were treated to several amuse bouches from the kitchen beforehand. The presentation of each dish was a work of art with everyone thoroughly enjoying their selections. A... More
