The crust on the lamb with the olives was a little bit salty but apart from that - everything was delicious and we had a lovely evening!

Been meaning to try Palate for years , and last night the stars aligned and we found a babysitter and booked a table for 2. Delicious meals, great service and recommendations from the waitress on wine selection were spot on. We cannot wait to come back . Thanks for a great dining experience!

I'm not a 'lady who lunches' but I often seem to have lunch at Palate. It's always very good, wait staff, wine list, ambiance, but I wouldn't mind a slight variation on the vegetarian menu.
