Reserved a table for 6, was seated at a large table for 8 in the bar area which was three times as noisy as the dining room. When asked upon leaving about the seating, was told at the time we arrived there was no wait staff in the dining room. There were customers eating there? I explained as a hearing challenged person, I was disappointed in this arrangement and was not told this when being seated. Our party of 6 were all over 60 and really cared very little about the music or loud TV's in the bar area. We had trouble hearing each other around the table!
John was an amazing server. Music was too loud so hard to ear when John was asking question or saying something. And very heard to have a vi conversation
Palette has been our GO TO, BUT recent issues have been concerning: while the food is still excellent, brunch has seen the biggest change. I’ve experienced exceedingly long waits for gluten free offerings at brunch (25 minutes or more) that were never an issue in the past. The last month, I’ve had to ask where my food was to cue it being made. The wait staff is far more serious, smiling less frequently. The environment lacks the wonderful carefree relaxed atmosphere of the recent past. Hopefully this is a blip...
I enjoy the regular menu much better than the brunch menu. The breakfast items are just okay. The pancake was soggy. The monkey bread is just okay. The egg dishes just ok.
Service was slow. Table smelled of dirty rag. Some food was cold when it was finally served. Not a good experience.
Paid for the bottomless brunch and enjoyed the meal. Service was friendly and efficient. My only warning is that if you are not a huge eater, you should figure out whether you are actually paying more for the bottomless than you would if you purchased the dishes individually. I ended up losing a few dollars in the end.
SImply delightful! All the food recommended to us was superlative - and we were a fussy crew: one with a shellfish allergy, and another one who would eat no beef or pork. We ended up splitting two tapas and a small salad and left really full. The restaurant is covered with interesting art, artists working in each room, and should not be missed. We talked it up so much to friends, we're heading back there!
Best brunch ever!
It’s a nice place with a good food. Always I enjoyed a lot there .
6 of us dined here for brunch last Sunday. Great atmosphere - fun place to watch football on Sundays. Great food, prompt service. Love the bottomless a la carte brunch concept for food - I've only seen that for drinks before (or brunch buffets). Great value for our group of 4 teens, mom, and dad.
Great food and drinks, exceptional service and fun atmosphere.
Great food. Enjoyed the vibe
My boyfriend and I love art and the Shirlington area. We were seated right away and the staff were attentive throughout our meal. We loved the shrimp and fried chicken street tacos. The fried brussel sprouts were spicy with a little sweetness - delicious! The chirros and flan sealed a great dinner. I’ll be be back because there were so many other things I want to try.
This was our first trip to Palette 22 and we did not know what to expect. We were going to a show at Signature Theater and needed to catch an early dinner beforehand. We were surprised at how good the restaurant was. The price was reasonable, service was good, and every small plate we shared was delicious. I would highly recommend it.
Brunch was great as usual. If you come prepared to eat you’ll definitely get your money’s worth with the bottomless brunch option; all of the small plates are so delicious!
Great service and amazing food. Server was very knowledgeable, especially considering my friend has a million allergies. Food came out timely, hot, and tasty. Great music as well. I can't wait to go back again.
We had so much fun tasting everything! Food was delicious, and the choices were many! Looking forward to coming back again to try the brunch!
Palette 22 is one of my go-to restaurants. I think their food is delicious. There's enough variety that whoever I bring here finds something they love. It's definitely on the noisy side so be prepared for that. I appreciate the consistently good service and quality.
The food is always fabulous. Music can be a little loud sometimes. Service is always great. It’s a favorite and I take people there all the time
Great concept, food, and service. It was my first time there with my friends celebrating my birthday, and our server John was exceptional. I will be returning with my husband so he can experience it as well!
Everything was great! It was a little warm inside on a hot day. But, everything and everyone was awesome...just turn up the AC a little next time😘
Really, really enjoyed the ecperience.
The food was delicious and customer service awesome . This was my 2nd visit.
We brought our parents this time.
LOVED the brunch.
Recommend lowering the music.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Great food. A bit noisy, but lovely atmosphere.
I brought my husband and friend to Palette 22 for brunch. The food was great and so was the service. We will definitely be back soon!
Delish as usual. Excellent menu selection and value for the money. Great staff! Love this restaurant and have dined here about 6-7x in the last 2 months.
Wait was long but it’s because they managed to accommodate 2 more to my party. Service was good! Love the waffle and taco bar! 2nd time we go & I would go again!
This place is amazing. Brunch is great. The foor is delicious.
Excellent food. Great and reasonably priced weekend brunch.
Beautiful local art covering walls.
Staff are very pleasant and helpful. My favorite weekend brunch place.
Never disappoints. Excellent staff and great food.
To start with, I ordered a cocktail, a Manhattan straight up. The waiter brought me a Manhattan on the rocks which I refused. He came back a couple of minutes later with my drink, but my guess is the bartender simply strained the drink to remove the ice. I ordered three Street Tacos assuming they were single tacos, but soon realized there was two tacos per order (good on Palette 22) which was not on the menu, nor explained by the waiter (bad on Palette 22). My wife had the ribs, but they ended up being way too spicy for her to eat. My guess is Palette 22 is capable of much better than this, but that was not my experience.
Fun atmosphere, good unique food. Happy hour was a nice surprise.
We loved the small plates and variety of choices. Each dish was perfect for sharing, and the drinks were creative and delicious.
Everything was great! Will come back!!
I asked friends the best place to go for food in Shirlington and they told me Palette 22. I had the Watermelon & Halloumi Cheese, Flash Fried Brussels Sprouts and the Basically Delicious cocktail. All of it was, well, delicious! We sat in the bar area which had a fun, friendly atmosphere. I definitely plan on going there more often!
It was really fun & the food was yummy. At first it was too loud, but, we were in the bar area. Our server was the best!!!!
Food was fabulous, service not so hot.
Great food, great vibe. Very satisfied
Palette 22 was a great brunch experience! The bottomless brunch option allowed our group to try all of the amazing small plates on the menu. The waffle and taco bar were easily accessible, and our server was attentive in spite of being very busy.
My second time dining at P22 for Sunday brunch. The volume of the music was so loud that, combined with ambient noise, I could barely hear the person sitting right next to me. Some of our food was overly salty--so salty that I didn't even eat it. The drinks were good, as usual. The gluten-free options seem to have diminished since last time I had brunch there, which is frustrating and disappointing. So, while it wasn't a bad meal, it wasn't a particularly good meal either, and I won't be going again for brunch.
