We tried Chef's Palette again for the
second time and it will be our last. First, the average price of all dinner menu items is $25 per entree- not the $15 to $25 listed in Urban Spoon. Second, their decorating scheme includes artwork that is for sale, and needless to say, it's been there a while. The drinks arrived 2/3 full with an excuse that they have changed their barware. Doesn't make a good first impression. The Scallop Risotto was bland. The Chicken Francese arrived with plating that attempted to mimic a high end restaurant but failed miserably. It seemed to be missing the seasonal vegetables. Chef's Palette is a pretender trying to be a purveyor of good food. They only succeed in high prices. Everything else is lacking.
You can generally tell that a restaurant is good from the number of cars parked in front. This one is no exception. We went on a week night and it was crowded. We didn't have reservations so we ate in the bar area. It was very good and the service was excellent. We will return.
This place was so awful. Our appetizer consisted of six shrimp with what seemed like an entire jar of cheap barbecue sauce poured over it. The food and drinks are way too overpriced for what you get- which is the feeling that you are watching NASCAR while covered in barbecue sauce. We should have gotten the hell out of there once we saw our menus light up.
