Palisade Restaurant Review: Known to locals as a special occasion restaurant, Palisade has commanding views of the Seattle skyline, bustling ferry boats and the Olympic Mountains that are rivaled by its modern and elegant atmosphere. The menu features a mix of seafood and steaks, such as whole live lobster with lemon butter sauce, Dungeness crab-stuffed black tiger prawns and a New York strip with Gorgonzola. For a taste of both, order the surf ‘n’ turf combo, a marriage of apple wood-smoked prime rib, grilled salmon and jumbo prawns. Seasonal specials can include cedar plank-roasted Northwest king salmon with charred onion-potato purée, rainbow carrots, asparagus and a drizzle of herb jus. For a sweet finale, don't miss the flourless chocolate cake. A full bar offers all forms of libations, among them notable Pacific Northwest varietals. Enjoy the range of selections, and especially the sourdough griddlecakes, at the Sunday brunch buffet. Business diners will like taking advantage of free round-trip town car service from downtown Seattle.
