food & value are amazing.
Good food, could use more salad and veggie options. Was very cold inside but since we had the dining room to ourselves, that could be part of the reason. Very attentive service.
Service was much slower than usual.
Hi, Melanie. Thank you for letting us know. We've shared this feedback with the management team and hope you'll give us another opportunity.
My friend and I needed a good brunch place close by (I live in Shirlington). Palette fit the bill. I’ve been here before for dinner and for watching sports and really enjoyed it. The brunch was just wonderful. I like all the small plates that let you have a variety of things, almost like having a buffet again. Really enjoyed the arepa eggs Benedict and the short rib empanada and the Savoy cabbage stuffed with shrimp. I also had a fabulous Bloody Mary with jalapeño-infused tequila. Our server was so great. She was so attentive in a very busy restaurant. I hope to see her again. I really want to do brunch again real soon to try the other menu items.
Will definitely return!! Brunch was affordable and delicious!
Delicious and safe way to have a meal during COVID-19
This is a great spot for brunch, my girls really enjoyed our time here. The food was delicious & came out fast. I enjoyed their service, very quick and good. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.
Celebrating a friend’s retirement.
Thank you for the five-star review!
My husband and I brought two guests for dinner. We have been to the restaurant several times and knew this was the perfect place. It was their first time dining at the Reataurant. Both ladies were celebrating birthdays. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Our Server Diego was amazing being that it was his first day. He was attentive, knowledgeable, had great suggestions and certainly added to making our dining experience an amazing birthday celebration.
Thank you for the five-star review and kind words! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you again very soon.
Did a great job with social distancing. One comment is while I appreciate trying to keep the menu fresh, there are a few favorites that seem to have disappeared from the new options. While we still had a great time, I have to say I preferred the old menu.
Thank you for your feedback. We have been adding menu items back over the past few weeks and would love to hear which of your favorites were missing so we can share that info with the culinary team.
Our waitress and the runners were great! Food was awesome! We definitely will be back
Thank you, Madi!
Sat on the pation with our pup, who got something from the dog menu. All of our brunch plates were delicious!
Thank you for the review! We're so glad you AND your pup enjoyed your dine.
Music was Way too loud outside. Made for a very unpleasant dining experience with friends. Food was great and service was good.
Thank you for the honest feedback. We have shared this feedback with the management team and will be sure we turn the volume down a bit next time.
Followed CDC protocols well! Food was great value. Service was great! Erin did a wonderful job for us!
Everything was perfect! Can’t wait to go back!
Thank you so much! We can't wait to see you.
Palette 22 never disappoints. Food and service was exceptional...all while social distancing. Best bottomless plates restaurant in the DMV — hands down.
Thank you so much for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!
Outside seating was great, however the music through the speakers was very loud at times.
Hi, Joseph. Thank you for the feedback. We'll ask the management team to turn the volume down a bit!
Amazing service and food! Great value. Nice outdoor dining space to promote social distancing
Thank you for the great review!
Natalie was a phenomenal server with great recommendations and attention to detail that made our experience out of this world!
Thank you so much for the amazing review. We'll share your kind words with Natalie and look forward to seeing you again soon.
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.
