I ordered the trout, but it was dry and over cooked. The fish was small and not worth almost $30!. The veggies that came with it were some sort of greens, maybe collard greens and they were unappetizing The greens were put in a small bowl along with the mash potatoes. The mash potatoes were good, but were inundated with the collard juices (which I did not like), so the potatoes were contaminated.

My family loves this restaurant and it is one of our go to spots when in Seattle. Normally we're in a booth to the right when you walk in or a table in the main section to the left and this time they put us in a bit of a back room to the left (when you're facing the bar as you walk in). This would have been ok (not the best ambiance for Mother's Day), but there were some very loud groups around us that made it really hard to hear or talk. The food was great as always as was the service.

I took my granddaughter after we attended a play. Pay public parking was conveniently just across the street. We were warmly welcomed and seated (before reservation time) at a great window table. Staff treated my granddaughter with respect and care. Having the offering of several non-alcoholic beverages was such a plus. She loved the Brussels Sprouts and wings from the app menu. We shared an entree and they brought it to the table already divided on two plates. The food was excellent as usual and she has eagerly agreed to go there again when we travel to Seattle. After we got home, I pulled out a Tom Douglas cookbook for her to choose something for me to prepare for her next week. In the cookbook, she found a picture of the restaurant at the exact table where we were seated. It was a wonderful experience for the two of us. And the chocolate salted caramel ice cream for dessert, had an absolutely glorious taste and mouth feel.

Our first time to Palace Kitchen left us with a very good impression. The host seated us right away even though we were nearly 15 minutes early. He asked what our timeline was to make sure we could leave when we needed to. We hadn’t even told him that we had tickets for a performance at Jazz Alley (right next door, so convenient for us). Our server was warm & suggested an appetizer that we both loved & will order again! Drinks came surprising fast..especially for a busy Saturday night, as did the appetizer & entree’s.
We ordered the burger & the halibut, both were delicious. Loved the fries (thin & crispy) with aioli. Serving size was just right. The only thing I would change is the lighting. It’s dark & you can’t read the menu without your phone flashlight. The couple across from us were using there’s too & not keeping the light to themselves I must say. The host attended to us just as well when we left as when we arrived, to make sure all was well. We loved Palace Kitchen & will be back soon! (I rarely leave reviews, this place deserved it!)

Excellent meetup and dinner location. I can't say enough good things, too, about our waiter Eric. He knows his stuff, and he's a long-timer at the restaurant. Friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and a natural storyteller. The food was just right, the prices are in line with any restaurant in the area, and it was easy to reserve table for Friday evening.

I'll be going back, this is a great spot.

The servers are skilled, attentive, and genuinely friendly—- the food (pausing to come up with words), so delicious! Looks beautiful, smells ah mazing!, and tastes (pausing again). Beautiful tastes all over the place! Had the lamb, melted in my mouth- also had the brussel sprouts (oh my!). Hubby had the roasted chicken- so flavorful and moist. Love this place!

We ended up in the smaller room with a table of 8 that was SO loud. Like it was their own, private outing. That was a bummer as we could barely talk to each other across a two top. The next seating of the same table ended up the same way. Super loud, oblivious to everyone around them. Not Palace Kitchen's fault at all but next time I will wait for a table in a different part of the restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was stellar. I love all of the TD restaurants.

Denise, I apologize for the rowdy parties you encountered! We like to think it's because people are enjoying themselves, but we understand it can be frustrating. Please do let us know next time you are with us if you find the same issue, we will of course move you to another table if possible! Thank you for providing us with your feedback, we appreciate you.

Service was a bit choppy, several different "servers", but they were all nice. Food was just OK. My hamburger tasted like salt and little else. Calamari appetizer was very small and tasted a bit fishy. Pigs ear poutine was good, not great.

Overall it was very pricey for average to below average food and average service. We went because of the location (close to Jazz Alley) and I will look for alternatives for our next visit to Jazz Alley. No reason to return to Palace Kitchen.

The Restaurant was very dark and loud and this was at 6pm, so not late. We asked to be moved to be closer to a window where there were plenty of open seats-to have more light. They claimed they were reserved, but the tables remained open. So, not very accommodating at all to a customer preference. We were not complaining, just asked if it would be possible and they were very disinterested and blew us off. The food was very ok, at best, and extremely salty. We won't be going back and definitely would not recommend. I will re-think checking out Tom Douglas restaurants too-given the mediocre food.

Great service, our waiter was friendly, attentive and funny. There is a good sized menu but for some reason not a lot jumped out as “wow that sounds delicious”. The mussels were served with a yogurt sauce drizzled over, which was tough to enjoy and made getting them out of their shells messier than usual. My burger was pretty good but a little dry. Overall fine but not my favorite.

We have dined at Palace Kitchen many times in the past. We enjoy the ambiance and fun environment and amazing food selections. However, this last dining experience was different. We arrived slightly before our reservation time and did not receive our food until about 50 minutes later. Our waitress seemed quite busy. We had to ask when our food might arrive after waiting 45 minutes after being seated and her response was "I was just thinking about that too". We were not on a time table as she did ask us this but rather thought we would have received our dinner in a more timely manner. Additionally, our son received a meal he ended up not liking due to the spicy taste. The waitress checked on us after we were done and asked if he did not like it. He replied no it was too spicy for him. She did not offer to replace or remove/discount the meal from our bill. One more suggestion, there was only one vegetarian entrée offered on the menu this time. It would be nice to have more than one option.
We were also surprised to find gratuity was already added to our bill. We honestly would not have paid 20% in gratuity as our waitress really wasn't that attentive to our needs. This restaurant has a special place in our history but it felt as if it wasn't really worth the price this time.

Dinner at the Palace started with olive poppers (they’re back and even better). Beef stroganoff on happy hour menu was a surprise and nicely done. Interesting cauliflower vegan entrée:cauliflower on a setup of hummus, radishes, pine nuts, pickled currants and cauliflower chips. Tasted great and the chips were excellent. We had the rotisserie chicken, which remains the best in town, to round things out. The service outstanding as usual. Great team. Nice night.
