I would much recommend this restaurant. Love the service and specially all drinks!! Fabulous time
First time there for a late dinner and will definitely be back again to try more menu items.
It was a very unique experience. I enjoyed the tapas and the ability to try many different dishes. However the taste wasn't all that great. Many of the dishes were underwhelming. Steak skewers, chicken wings, short rib empanada, pork and shrimp lumpia, hoisin glazed pork belly were some of the dishes that did not shine.
The grilled octopus, Brussels sprouts, Mexican corn, hummus were great.
The service was good. The setup and vibe was nice but the food wasn’t too good.
Awesome! Great experience!
Good food, awesome customer service, and joyful atmosphere.
Fabulous place! Will definitely be back for bottomless brunch.
We did the bottomless dinner and it was really hit or miss taste wise. The service was absolutely terrible, our waiter would disappear for over 30 minutes at a time and we couldn’t get anyone else to come to our table even after getting up and asking. The food was mediocre at best. Half of what we ordered never came out and we had to ask multiple times where certain dishes were then we would end up getting the same dish 2-3 times. There were three other tables around us that experienced the same thing. All of us waited over half an hour for our waiter to come back so we could ask for our checks and saw about 5 employees hanging around the bar none of which would help any of our tables. When we finally got someone to help us we mentioned that we hadn’t seen our waiter in almost 45 minutes and we got a rude response that it was a Friday night and it was busy. We couldn’t even get anyone to refill our water the entire hour and a half that we were there. Definitely would not recommend this place.
Excellent food. If you're going to eat here, the bottomless option is really the only affordable way to go though.
We opted for the bottom-less tapas option and it was well worth the $34 price.
Hans was a great server and he told us about the all you can eat for 35.00 plus we had a coupon!! Shanghai Wings, short rib empanada and the sesame steak skewers are the best! Go on…go ask for Hans he’ll hook you up!!
Really love the endless food option. We got to try pretty much all the foods and it was amazing!! Great dinner for sure!
Great place to go with friends. We celebrated my daughter's birthday there. It was a lot of fun for her to try lots of dishes with the bottomless option.
Really good food and a good price too.
Was in town traveling. This came as a recommendation from a friend. I was not disappointed!!! Did the bottomless brunch… an absolute must. Just make sure you make a reservation!!
Vegetarian option limited, overall great taste in food! Loved the music and the ambience. Service was definitely slow.
Great meal with friends
Food was mediocre and it was so loud inside we had to yell to talk.
Another great visit for brunch at Palette 22. I would definitely recommend getting the bottomless brunch. It’s worth it! Cheers!
What fun! Small plates from around the world and traditional brunch dishes with a twist! Great value!
Busser spilled a tray of drinks on me, the manager didn't even come up to apologize or offer anything to smooth over the situation. Our server acted like nothing happened. Worst customer service.
Great place to celebrate a birthday, but it’s a great place for any day.
Such a fun spot in the heart of Shirlington. International tapas, something for just about everyone!
Great place and service. The different types of food was awesome.
Thank you was my wife’s birthday and you made it very special
I loved the experience!!
Our server Diego was awesome and very knowledgeable of the menu.
Not as good as prior visits but still great !
Amazing brunch! Tons of variety and the small plates allows you taste it all.
So lovely! Attentive server and great food! We did the dinner bottomless and left with happy and full bellies!
The food was excellent and served quickly. The noise level is high! I would recommend Pallette 22 despite the Loyd music.
Don’t see it being worth it if you don’t go for the bottomless option. Price is a bit high but it’s unlimited. Some of the menu items were a bit underwhelming, but service was great and the small plate concept was loads of fun. I would come back.
I’ve been to Palette so many times and it’s been pretty consistent. Food and service is typically good. The French toast, apple pancake dish, breakfast tacos and shrimp tacos were amazing. I wasn’t crazy about where we were wearing and I asked my waiter if we could be moved. There were several seats available for two people. The waiter instructed me to go back outside and talk to the hostess, which was a bit off putting. I wasn’t sure why the waiter could not go talk to the hostess himself. Ultimately I remained seated where I was.
Great Service loved it
Some of the food was disappointing. While waitperson was fine, no one ever came to take dirty plates off the table which is necessary with small plate eating. Never gave us clean silverware, even between main meal and dessert. Very disappointing.
Service is always charming, fun and attentive. Great food - especially fun with groups
Great atmosphere, love the artists
This was our first visit and we chose to eat outside. That was marred only by the couple who elected to smoke cigarettes on the street corner...The restaurant offers many options for global cuisine. If we had been truly hungry, we would have opted for the "all you can eat" option; that not being the case, we each settled for two items plus one watermelon fresca. The food was tasty but not extraordinary. If we happened to be back in Shirlington, we might eat here again. But, there are many truly wonderful restaurants within two blocks, so ...
The food was absolutely great but some of the items that I ordered took a very long time to come out. I had to remind our waiter that I was waiting for things multiple times before I finally got them. The overall value is great aside from this. Bottomless brunch for less than 30 dollars was a steal!
We will be back soon. Truly an enjoyable Sunday brunch experience.
