Palisade Restaurant Review: Just above the Elliott Bay Marina sits Palisade. Known to locals as a special occasion restaurant, its commanding views of the Seattle skyline, ferry boats and the Olympic Mountains are rivaled by its modern yet elegant atmosphere. The menu features a mix of seafood and steaks, including whole live lobster with lemon butter sauce, Dungeness crab-stuffed black tiger prawns and New York strip with Gorgonzola. For a taste of both, opt for the surf ‘n’ turf, a combination of apple wood-smoked prime rib, grilled salmon and jumbo prawns. Seasonal specials might include cedar plank roasted Northwest king salmon with charred onion-potato purée, rainbow carrots, asparagus and herb jus. For a sweet finish, try the flourless chocolate cake. Sunday brunch buffet is the best way to enjoy Palisade, especially for the sourdough griddlecakes. Business diners will want to take advantage of free round-trip town car service from downtown Seattle.
