Description: Palette Bistro, located on the edge of downtown Petoskey, is a unique alternative in upscale casual dining. The food is innovative and pleasing. A Mediterranean inspired menu that evolves seasonally featuring small plates and rustic brick oven preparations. Complimented by carefully selected wines from Europe, Michigan Craft and Belgian Beers. The restaurant offers two floors of seating with stunning views of Little Traverse Bay, intimate lounges and al fresco dining.

Went for restaurant week and they more than excided our expectations. We both started off with the Mediterranean pulled pork served on blue cheese polenta and topped with house made bbq sauce. Excellent. Main course we both chose the chicken and sausage paella. I'm still dreaming about it. Will definitely go back.

We ate here on Sunday for the first time. The Sunday Brunch was being offered at the time we were there. Coffee is pressed, fresh, full bodied taste and just right for an eye opener. For starters I had the Yogurt Parfait (fantastic) followed by the Frittata made w/ lobster, veggies & cheese. It was absolutely delicious and presentation was quite nice. The service is impeccable. We had a window seating with a beautiful view of the Bay, which truly enhanced our social gathering. I did make reservations for a party of 4 at Noon w/ a request for a window seat; thought I'd better mention that. I look forward to our next visit for lunch, the menu looks to be very inviting. I suggest making it your next destination to sample the menu and delight in the company of excellent service while visiting Petoskey.

We arrived 15 min early for our reservation but were seated right away. The service was excellent the whole dinner. The server was attentive but not overdoing it. We had an asparagus salad, chicken dinner which was delicious, pecan pie and a few cocktails for two people which was about 125.00! Not bad! If you go, request a table by the window if possible and maybe you'll be on time for the great sunset view over the bay.

Had dinner with wife and son. Expensive but high quality food. The service was very good and our food was excellent. We got to watch the sunset over the bay and ran a rather large bill but felt it was worth it. I would recommend it to my friends.
