Tom Douglas operates three of the most popular restaurants in the city, which are Dahlia Lounge , Etta's Seafood and the Palace Kitchen. Locals swarm to this dimly-lit spot with its incredible U-shaped bar. Appetizers include hazelnut-dusted calamari, roasted Manilla clams and a good cheese selection. Delectable preparations of meat, chicken and fish grace the ever-changing entree list. Try the daily applewood grill selections and the locally famous Palace Burger Royale . Tom's desserts are renowned, especially the coconut cream pie and the chocolate torte.
Dear Palace Kitchen,
My family and I were in Seattle for our annual Mariners/Seafest trip. We came across a small steak house...now ten years since I am on leave from Iraq. As if I had just put down the knife,I dream about the the 8oz steak that still salivates my mouth. Dont stop what you do. Palace Kitchen, you rock!
We wish we could eat at Palace Kitchen more often, but alas, we live three hours away, and can only visit a few times a year. Although we have plenty of great places to eat in our home town of Portland, we always look forward to a trip to Seattle as we make a point of eating there at least once on every trip! The service is consistently excellent, as is the food. It's the kind of place you can take a date or a child or a business associate and always be perfectly comfortable. We've always had great meals there and recommend Palace Kitchen to anyone who who lives in Seattle, visits Seattle, drives through it, or whatever!
I am new to the Seattle area and have now eaten at three of Tom Douglas' restaurants (Dahlia, Lola, and Palace Kitchen). I like the late night dining available at the Palace Kitchen. After the theater recently I went there for just for a burger. It was the worst burger I have ever had. At the price, it should have been at least good! The burger was dry, the bun looked and tasted like a mini Wonder Bread roll with minimal accompanying condiments. On the other hand the pork ravioli's are to die for! I had experienced similar variability in quality at Dahlia (Spring duck, great; Oodles of Noodles, terrible).
Seattle restaurants aren't known for being open late--something we did not realize when we set out at 10 pm to find dinner. Thank heavens we came across the Palace Kitchen. Despite the relatively late hour and the fact that it was a weeknight, the place was packed.
As busy as they were, after only a few minutes we were seated by a surprisingly cheerful waiter (anyone waiting tables after 10 pm with a smile deserves kudos) who took our orders and brought our food promptly.
As good as the service was, the food was even better. We had the Palace olive poppers, roasted Washington chicken, and planked Copper River salmon. Everything was perfectly seasoned, perfectly prepared, and perfectly delicious. I would have been impressed at 6 p.m., I was doubly impressed given the late hour.
The only drawback to the Palace Kitchen is the noise level; Tom Douglas' restaurants seem to favor decor that increases sound rather than muffles it. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, and it's easily outweighed by the quailty of food and service.
I recently moved to Seattle from the midwest and was turned on to the Palace Kitchen after having a few drinks with some friends one night. I was told that they serve food, not just bar food, but a full menu ranging from scallops and roasted peaches to the famous palace burger. The atmosphere was amazing and the fact that I could see the cooks busily working away in the open kitchen made me feel much more confident that my food wasn't being dropped on the floor. Overall, I would return to the Palace Kitchen at least once a week.
