Palisade: A User’s Guide
- Appetizer: teriyaki tenderloin
- Surf: crab-stuffed jumbo prawns
- Turf: spit-roasted prime rib
- Dessert: salted-caramel ice cream with granola and caramelized bananas
Where to Sit: The 180-degree wall of windows overlooking Elliott Bay ups your odds of nabbing a stunning waterfront view. But the rest of the dining room offers its own picturesque scenes including a fish pond replete with a babbling waterfall.
When to Go: Budget-conscious diners can score the same incredible views and fresh seafood during affordable prix-fixe lunches or “first seating” dinners held before the evening rush.
While You’re Waiting:
Order a classic cocktail cooled by one of Palisade’s signature ice spheres, which are designed to melt slower and chill drinks longer than traditional cubes.
- Although all of Palisade’s seafood is fresh, the dungeness crab might just be the freshest of all—the kitchen stores them live in a 600-gallon tank.
- Because it’s nestled in the harbor, this restaurant can be a tad difficult to find. Call ahead for directions.
