Palette 22 never disappoints. Food and service was exceptional...all while social distancing. Best bottomless plates restaurant in the DMV — hands down.
Amazing service and food! Great value. Nice outdoor dining space to promote social distancing
Natalie was a phenomenal server with great recommendations and attention to detail that made our experience out of this world!
I love coming here! Amazing small plates and very flavorful!!
This was my first restaurant dining experience since the pandemic, so eating a delicious brunch with a friend outside was a delight. The waiter set up the table, brought menus (paper menus that were disposable) and drinks right away. He made suggestions on best items on the bottomless brunch menu. Everything was delicious! In addition, the waiter wore a mask and gloves. The tables were set far apart so felt comfortable eating there without concern of getting COVID-19 from anyone. Would definitely eat there again and recommend Palette 22 to my friends.
My sister and I had a wonderful experience at Palette 22! Both of our servers were awesome! Very friendly and attentive. And the food was delish. What a great value you get for their bottomless dining!! I will return with friends and family for sure!
Absolutely loved how you are supporting artists! The food was amazing (especially the watermelon and cheese, it is out of this world)! This was our second time and your wonderful restaurant, and we plan to done woth you again. The severs are so nice and the food was amazing. The only negative comment would be the time between orders, but i can totally understand with how busy it was the day we were there.
Really great Brunch... Especially getting back to normalcy, the food was AMAZING. We will be going back, bank for the buck was huge. Our server was well versed and made great suggestions.
Flavorful food. Nice ambiance. We were seated outside. Our waitress was attentive and kept our mimosas coming
Natalie was a great server. Went above and beyond to check on water, coffee, drinks and our well being. We will definitely come back and request Natalie to be our server next time.
Food was great, our waitress was great. So glad they are open again.
Palette 22 keeps getting better and better every time we go for brunch. We enjoy it so much that we went 3 times in the last two weekends. Their small plates are a great value because we can try multiple dishes. The dishes are reasonably priced and packed with flavor. I would recommend their brunch to anyone looking for a great time and great food. Plus, you can dog watch while you are eating on the patio which is an added bonus.
Food and service were great. However, every table inside and outside was full. 6ft separation for covid was not followed. I would not recommended coming to this location during this pandemic as I did not feel safe in this environment; at least not during busy brunch hours on the weekend. Maybe during the week it’s less packed.
We love Bottomless Brunch!
Palette 22 has done a great job adjusting to the “new normal”. We especially appreciated the remote menu accessible via QR code. Unfortunately many of our Palette 22 favorites were not yet available. We branched our and we’re very pleased with the pork skewer but as big fans of kimchi normally, we were disappointed by the fishy smell and taste of the kimchi app. Was really hoping to like it. Our server was great and the outdoor seating made us feel comfortable as it was covered and far enough away from neighboring diners.
Due to a power outage in all of Shirlington Village, Pallette 22 was closed. We did not know until we were already there. My husband is disabled and in a wheelchair so it's not simple to bring him to a restaurant. A passerby told us of the outage. At the very least the restaurant should have called to let us know and left a message. Better would have been for the manager to be there to make sure people were informed.
Too bad for the restaurants that were affected. Yet another blow to their already fragile business life.
Normally, we would give them a 4 star review. We will try again.
My only issue is that they play the music too loud. Even outside it was hard to have a conversation. I would come here more often except for that.
Great brunch, dog friendly and food is always delicious!
Nice little birthday gift from the restaurant. Delicious food.
Waitress was not having a great night forgot half the order. Guess she was rusty.
Thank you for your review and feedback. We pride ourselves on both the quality of our dishes, along with the service we provide, and are sorry to hear that we fell short. We have shared your feedback with the management team and hope that you'll give us another opportunity to impress you.
Nice after being in a quarantine
Nice location and dining experience. Limited parking, but there are parking garages close. Large bottomless brunch menu! Definitely a great deal.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We hope to see you again once we reopen our doors.
I absolutely loved my experience here! The food was delicious and it was a great place to get together for brunch with friends. I look forward to returning when we are able to get out and about again. 😊
The all you can eat brunch is delicious and a good value.
Thank you for the kind review, Davina! We hope to see you again soon.
Special thanks to
Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon.
Awesome food. Great service. Wonderful atmosphere.
Thank you for the review!
Great food and drinks for a work send- off. However, it was, as expected, very loud by the kitchen and our table for eight was interrupted by a column so we couldn't all see each other. Won't stop my family from returning, just wanted to give feedback.
Hi Elisa, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review!
Great happy hours (pre-covid, not sure if that has changed). the food is ok. nice ambiance with art and live music,
Great choice! Highly recommended! We are traveling with our family and picked this to stop for dinner. 5 stars all around. Excellent food excellent service! They were right on anything we needed! One of the best places I have had Mexican food at! Stop here!!
Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us the lovely words! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed our service as well as our dishes. We hope to be a stop on your next visit to town.
Gaston was excellent, we were mildly disappointed that they had run out of tiramisu but the awesome manager managed to find the last piece for us which was a perfect ending to our date! All of the food was amazing, will definitely be back!!
Hi Kelly, thank your taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed your date night and that you were able to have our Tiramisu. We look forward to having you again.
We really enjoyed ourselves and all of the food was excellent. Planning on returning
Thank you for the kind words Teresa! We look forward to your next visit.
The service and ambiance are excellent. I found the food to be okay, not outstanding. I had the potatoes, steak tacos, and goat cheese appetizer. Tge sauce in all three dishes tasted almost exactly the same. Not much variation here. The tiramisu was great.
Hi Lisa, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We appreciate the feedback and will share this information with the culinary and management teams. We do hope to see you again.
We had to wait 40 minutes even though we had a reservation. It was frustrating.

As we take all feedback very seriously, we will be sharing this information with our management team in hopes of bettering our guests’ dining experience. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.
We made reservation and requested a high top table. Upon arrival there were two empty high tops. The hostess said she would seat us at one of those tables shortly. Finally after waiting for approx 20min, I asked why we haven’t been seated. She again said she would seat us in one minute. After about five minutes I asked again and pointed at the available high top tables. It was at this time she told me we could not sit at the high tops because we were only a party of four. Of course I was frustrated because this was never told to me in the beginning. They didn’t seem to care they had us waiting for a table they never planned on giving us. It should be noted, there were several tables nearby that were available. Other than that, the brunch is always amazing and our server was super nice.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

We will be sharing this information with the management team and we hope we will see you again soon.
Brussels sprouts very hot spicy! Octopus very good. Some Small plates not very small, so not sure the fixed price all you can eat is necessary or a good value. Just order a few of them and share. Cauliflower tasty. Ribs very good. Mussels pretty good.
Hi Laura, thank you for the review! We are glad to know you enjoyed our dishes and we hope to see you again soon.
We had a great experience doing bottomless dining. It was quite busy so we were glad to have reserved in advance. Everything was tasty but it’s hard to make customizations — for example, we wanted sliders without bacon mayo and they still served with it. This was just a small hiccup but other than that, no complaints at all. Overall, friendly and courteous customer service. Highly recommend
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us the kind words! We appreciate the information provided as we will be sharing it with the team. We hope to see you again soon.
Our server, Holly, was excellent and made a wonderful dinner even better. Palette 22 is fun, a little different - imagine having a great dinner in the midst of an art gallery_ and very reasonably priced. A definite go to again!
Thank you for the kind words, Alan! We hope to see you again soon.
Lots of food options, loved the Taco Bar and waffle bar that are part of endless brunch. Kind of chaotic but they manage it well. Would recommend, would go back.
Hi Nicole, thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind words! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
