My family and I experience at Palette 22 was very unpleasant. Our waiter made mistakes in taking our food orders and could not get hold of him had to ask other servers for assistance. Came time to pay the bill, he placed each items down as a la carte instead of the buffet style. The manager made the adjustment to my bill but no apology from the waiter or is there anything else we would like to order. As I'm leaving the restaurant with my family the waiter runs up to me asking where is his cash tip. I never in my dining experience EVER experience service like this. I hope Palette 22 management team takes the time to review.
Really great food. I love how they use electronic order system to place orders faster
Called to make a reservation for 11 people and they said they could accommodate. When we got there they had us split in groups. Inside the restaurant there were a few big parties seated together. Not sure why they didn’t place us together when they said they could. Have been going here for years and this is the first time I’ve been disappointed.
Great time! Sat outside and it was so pleasant!
Table was reserved great food great place full of art weekend is busy some of these food I ordered didn’t come out but overall food was good
Great! Would recommend to all of my friends. Can't wait to go back!
This was my second time going. This a place where everyone can find something they like on menu because they have SO many different dishes. Worth noting that it’s one of the only places that includes dessert in the bottomless menu. Great service and ambiance! I will continue to go back.
Tonight is our first and last time at this restaurant. Jerk chicken skewer was raw inside. Returned it, wasn’t mad, it happens, just asked to replace it with a thoroughly cooked one. Over 45 mins waiting, replacement never came.
First order of chicken wings were undercooked, raw inside.
Waited over an hour for 2 orders of cheeseburger sliders and 2nd order of chicken wings, never came. Ordered churros, waited over 30 mins, never came.
Asked for water refills about 8 times, received it 3. Asked for water refill from the manager to whom we talked to about the raw jerk chicken, that a replacement is fine, she never returned with either the water and jerk chicken skewers. Didn’t even bother to come back to see the raw chicken wings.
They told us were letting us take home the orders that never came, which they normally don’t allow.
We waited another 10 mins for them to pack 1 order of sliders, not 2 like we ordered, chicken wings (may be raw inside) and churros.
Overall, service was very slow and all the dishes were underwhelming.
Obviously short staffed at the moment. Waiters constantly brought others orders and had to ask for me orders constantly.
Lots of delicious choices. Highly recommend the all you can eat option so you can try as many as possible. 😀 The octopus skewers with Israeli couscous was phenomenal. Also the Dan Dan noodles and churros.
Palette 22 was a fantastic experience. It is a tapas style restaurant where you get small plates that are great for sharing with another person. Of about the 12 plates that my wife and I tried, 11 were FANTASTIC and I'd rate 1 of them as just "okay." I just wish I hadn't gotten so full! Great for a casual date night or going out with friends.
The food was incredible! Every single thing we had was delicious. The specials — Cambodian beef skewers and seared tuna on Asian pear — were so delicious, that beef was so tender. I loved the pizza menu; we got the mushroom, which I believe had some truffle in it (my fave) and the primavera, which was full of veggies. Wonderful! The Mexican street corn was a particular favorite as was the southwest salad. Our waiter was attentive and tried to make sure we had a good evening, which we did. Palette 22 still has its issue with some dishes coming out really late if ever. We had to ask twice about some things we ordered. But it was a great evening with great food, and we were so happy with our evening. Planning to go back again really soon. Whenever friends visit me in Shirlington, this is where they want to go.
Good brunch menu with variety! Drinks are delicious as well!
Great service and food.
Great food and service! We really enjoyed the atmosphere which was very chill.
I am a repeat visitor for Palette 22. The service is ALWAYS great and I haven't brought a new person there yet who left unsatisfied with the prices, the options for the food, and the flavor of each dish. 10 out of 10, would recommend!
Half price wine night! What’s better than that!
Been for drinks before, but first time dining. The $30 bottomless lunch is amazing. If you have a buddy you can sample so much of the menu in one visit. It’s all tapas style so just get a small portion of everything to discover your favorites.
The entire menu is available and there are very few misses.
Our server was great! I cannot remember his name – but he was very warm and attentive to our needs!
Good food with plenty of outdoor seating.
It was very good ! Easy everyday dining !
Food and service was great!
This was my third visit. The food is consistently well prepared and delicious. Every dish is unique and tasty, and the staff are friendly and professional.
This brunch is auhmazinggggg! Make the reservation, you won’t regret it. The menu is diverse and everything is well made and delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast pizza and pumpkin donuts. This place put joy in my soul lol.
Great place, lots of fun, good food with excellent wait-staff. Food can take a little while to be served and not every order arrives at same time. That’s just how it works.
Great food, wide choice of dished and excellent value.
The staff really ruined the experience for me. We were barely waited for at the bar, they would ignore my friends and I whenever we would need to order anything and would forget to do the simplest things such as refill our water when we asked. The food was also disappointing, partly because it tasted like our plates had been sitting out for a while before getting to us.
The service was great. Just get there early. Food comes out a little later when it gets busy.
Superb! Hans was an amazing waiter. We had a great night and it was our first time eating here.
We had a great time at dinner. Meal and drinks were great. Service was excellent! We will be back.
Love the many options for brunch! Fresh watermelon Bellini was my favorite. Can’t wait to go back.
Great portions; delicious food.
You can bring your pooch! Even dog menu is available!
Some of the best food and nicest staff ever. Vegan kubideh! Perfect steak skewers!! Delicious birria tacos!!!
Overall it was a great experience.I got the bottomless dishes and it was worth every penny. The food came out fast and hot, our waiter was excellent. I do think you should be allowed to bring one dish home with you because you have so many options.
There were two of us and we had the bottomless dining option. We ate about thirteen dishes and everything we had was tasty except the Tuna Taco (the topping was too salty). The stand outs for us was the Mushroom pizza and the Churros. We would go again.
My only complaint was that our table was located under the outdoor speaker of the restaurant next door and it got a little loud. The service was great, and sharing dishes was perfect - each diner could decide how much they wanted.
The food was amazing, but our server was not very attentive. We had to repeat thing several times. At the end we had to ask for the bill 4 times before he could let us pay and leave the restaurant. Other than that everything else was outstanding
Food was amazing! Bottomless brunch is a must! Dog friendly as well.
