Food was good overall, but many of the selections were average. Do not order the Nashville hot chicken slider. With the slaw and lack of heat, the chef obviously hasn't had a real one.

I love coming to Palette! Only feedback, the shrimp tacos were not as good as they normally are. The shrimp were small, the tacos cold, and the seasoning wasn’t there. Otherwise, great meal.

I went with a group of friends to brunch and they were running 30 minutes behind. Since brunch ended sharply at 3pm, they did not offer any accommodations. Also some of the food was very dry. Liked the ambiance and the feel of the restaurant.

I understand that it’s a pandemic and restaurants are trying their hardest to accommodate customers. However, we booked a reservation for 1130 almost one week prior to meal yet we weren’t seated until almost 20 minutes after our reservation. We didn’t have our first bite of food until almost 1215. Again, I understand it’s a pandemic but if this restaurant is going to list themselves on open table, they need to be a little bit more realistic about the reservation times.
Our server was great and the food was just ok but I was disappointed with the wait time and reservation policy.

Our dinner reservation was at 7:30pm. We had requested to be seated outdoors. Glad to see the social distancing between tables and the disinfecting of tables and chairs. Our waitstaff was friendly and answered questions we had. Food came quickly and served by servers using masks and gloves. Food was tasty. Only mishap was we had ordered two of the egg rolls but only served us one and we were charged for both. However, this was cleared up immediately. Would go again.

There isn't a thing on the menu that is not excellent. Flavors are unique, food comes out extremely fast and the staff is very courteous. There is an option to pay $35 for endless dinner--very reasonable, and completely worth it. I would recommend for a date night or a night out with friends. We will be back.

Pretty good value and excellent selection for bottomless dining. Great value for sangria for only $3.22 with bottomless dining. We tried about 70% of the options and everything was quite delicious. Service was prompt, courteous, attentive, and professional. The basically delicious was, indeed, delicious and smooth; this drink could get you in trouble; it would have been even better if it was the happy hour price since we were there during the happy hour time. Overall, great service, food, and selection. We will definitely be returning.

We're repeat customers. Love their all u can eat brunch! Their dishes are tapas style. Small plates, tons of sweet or savory options, including vegetarian. Great value for a small price.

We sat outdoors, first time visiting since pandemic. Made our reservation through open table, greeted by hostess outside. They have a good system going, i felt safe. Food took a little longer than usual but that was expected. Overall very pleased.

Food was great but the service was terrible. Our table and chairs were wet so we asked if they can take care of it or if we can have another table that's not wet. Hostess moved us to another table that was also wet and the chairs were wet as well. We had to wipe them down with the cloth napkins that came with our utensils as the hostess left and there was no one else to help. The manager showed up and told us we can't sit there and had to go back to another table since that table was for 8 people and he needed it. So we asked again to have someone wipe down the chairs and tables because they are wet. He sent someone who only wiped the table with disinfectant wipes and left the chairs wet. We used the cloth napkins again to do it ourselves. The table we were moved from was given to a group of 6 not 8 and our table was for 6 people as well so not sure why they moved us. After the waitress was acting strange and a lot of our food was not brought out to us and we had to reorder ( we got the bottomless brunch). She came back to check on us and after a few times he asked us if we are ready for the check. At this point it was the 4th time they didn't bring few items and I told her we are still waiting for some food that we ordered a while ago including a waffle. She then pointed to a bit of a leftover waffle someone else was eating before we ordered the other wan and said " "This is a waffle, it was delivered". I explained again and we ordered with no maple syrup and they brought it out 15 min later with maple syrup on top and on the side. We had the waffle remade and left right after. I have to say again that the food was awesome but they kinda ruined my bday experience with the bad service.
