WonderfulScallops and lamb were the entree choices. Very nice. Speck & Figs appetizer rocked!
We had two awesome servers. Madelyn was great. Josh backed her up and that Josh...oh my!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!The food at Pallet was very good with a creative menu and beautiful presentation. Service was attentive and helpful. Would definitely go back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCool Place--Slightly OverpricedWe enjoyed our experience at Pallet--the atmosphere was cool, energy was high, and the service was good. The food was good but not in line with price expectations. Our group tried 4 of the appetizers and several dishes with mixed reviews. The presentation was excellent with some creative recipes. Personally, I had the New York strip which was good but a little tough. Our visit was on day two of a new menu which featured entirely new dishes than the website featured. It was a odd to me there were no signature dishes for repeat diners to enjoy. The communal dining style was ok but it was a bit noisy to be sitting so close to other groups. Overall, I enjoyed the restaurant but will unlikely return with so many dining options.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPalletWe have gone to Pallet quite a few times, and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious and 3 times now we have had the same server, Rachel, and shes awesome. Always remembers us and takes really good care. Pallet is definitely my number 1 in SLC.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMKnowledgeable waiter staff,Knowledgeable waiter staff, incredible drinks and cozy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there for Mother'sWe went there for Mother's Day and the food was delicious! Setting was fun. The food took a while to come out but it was worth the wait!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, uncomfortable seatingThis is a great local restaurant with lots of style and flavor. Rustic modern decor with a 1920s flair. Creative cocktail menu. I had the Her Blonde Mohawk, an apple brandy/whiskey cocktail. It was fantastic. I had the beet salad. Very fresh and flavorful. For my main course I had the filet. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Drink service was very slow, but service overall was friendly and food service was fast.
I'm not likely to go back because we were seated at one long table right next to people we didn't know. Zero privacy. It was very uncomfortable. The restaurant should consider sacrificing a few seats for smaller tables. We even had a reservation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy food, cramped seatingI reserved through Open Table and told them we were celebrating an anniversary and asked if they could do anything special. We got there and nothing was said about our reservation request. Kind of disappointing. I didn't feel like we were special from the couple next to us. Maybe I should have called in person to make a special request. This restaurant is not for special occasion dining. The seating was very cramped. We were literally seated within inches of the party next to us. The table behind us was loud and obnoxious. It didn't make for a quiet and romantic dining experience (which is what I wanted). I should have looked into that before reserving. The food and service was really good. The decor was cool, too.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCarolynToo big of servings for lunch otherwise great. Service and staff were excellent!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the sea bass but unfortunatelI had the sea bass but unfortunately my dinner was not hot, only warmish.The fish was not cooked well enough in the middle. Oysters and beet salad were great,I also think you should serve bread with dinner and not grapes with honey on them4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSssh, don't tell anyone -Sssh, don't tell anyone - our new fave find in downtown SLC. The room is fantastic, an eclectic mix of metals, found woods, and stunning original art (I asked - the owner's wife). Our server was super nice (but could have known a bit more about the ingredients on the menu, was nq up to speed when we asked her some things). Don't order a cosmopolitan, it's nq what you'd expect. The menu is beautiful, with a terrific mix of game, fish and 'the regulars'. The veggies were cooked to perfection (smooth but not soft or underdone). Dee-lish. The desserts were yummy too. We're going to Pallet again for sure!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is awesome. GreatThis place is awesome. Great menu! Excellent service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for business dinnerWent there for business dinner (small group - 3) and everything turn out great. Very good food, quiet enough to talk an good service.
Would go again.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place! Will keepLove this place! Eaten here twice with coworkers while in town for business. Had to dine here again after the first experience. Love the look and feel, great ambiance
The food is excellent. The chicken stuffed with walnuts and cherries is the best chicken dish I have ever eaten. Truffle fries are a must for the table. The oatmeal dessert is delicious. Never had anything like it. This is just to name a few. You can't go wrong with whatever you order here.
The service started out a bit slow with the first round of drinks. There were 5 of us and it seemed to overwhelm the one bartender. Service was fine after that.
Overall great experience twice at Pallet. Will keep going back. Highly recommend for a great meal in a great setting.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPallet is a small restaurantPallet is a small restaurant but big in food quality and ambiance. I ordered the fish special, and I was not disappointed. And the wine list is great.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a fabulous evening atHad a fabulous evening at Pallet with my girlfriends. The food was amazing as usual. I can't get enough of Gloria's meatballs!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, average server.We went there for my birthday and ha an awesome experience. The overall feel and ambiance was great. Our waitress seemed tired and like she had a lot on her mind but the food made up for her lack of enthusiasm. The truffled fries and the gnocchi were delicious! The duck and chicken were okay with mild flavors without much "pop". The fillet was by far the star of the menu and would rank in my top 3 fillets ever. The scalloped potatoes were melt in your mouth tender and the blue cheese sauce married everything perfectly.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food and service.Fabulous food and service. Music got a little loud, but would totally recommend it.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEven if you have a reservationEven if you have a reservation you may be seated at one of the communal tables. We did and it wasn't at all bad. We had a nice conversation with our dining neighbors and got to see some of the food before we ordered! But if you don't like the idea of communal tables or want a romantic dinner for two Pallet may not be for you. Food was good and the service quite attentive. We had theater tickets and were on a deadline. Our waitress managed to get us out right on time!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in Downtown Salt LakeOne of the best meals I've ever had. It was amazing. The entire experience was phenomenal. I would highly recommend it and I'll definitely be back. My favorite was the truffle fries. Delish!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightFirst glance at the menu didn't impress but once the food started arriving both my wife and I couldn't stop. we started with a few appetizers, including the beet salad, truffle fries and mushroom ravioli's. My wife had the tomato/lentil soup as well. These items were all EXCELLENT. The truffle fries were decadent while the mushroom ravioli's had an amazing, complex taste. The beet salad was fresh and refreshing as well. As for the soup, my wife doesn't even like tomato soup but it was a soup-like night so she went for it and not only was she not turned off by it but loved every bite.
I ordered the seafood pasta which was a little lacking in taste but was fixed by adding a little pepper. Presentation of all foods was amazing.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThird time we've been, andThird time we've been, and still amazing. Just a little disappointed they were out of the gnocchi appetizer, but hey good food goes fast.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, I really enjoyedOverall, I really enjoyed Pallet. It was a good find for a birthday dinner. We had dinner tapas style sampling a wide variety of the appetizers. The sweet potato gnocchi was by far my favorite (and I don't even really like sweet potatoes). The only thing I really didn't like was the mushroom ravioli and that can be attributed completely to the texture of the filling for me. The flavors were good but I wasn't expecting what I got on that one. That said, the other 3 appetizers and 2 salads were all very good.
The building is unique and set the ambiance at Pallet well. I'd definitely go back again!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening. The place isGreat evening. The place is warm and welcoming. Our waitress was one of the best in slc. Great place for a date4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second time to Pallet.My second time to Pallet. First time my duck was under-seasoned, but everything else was decent. Went back hoping it would be better. Appetizer (Gnocchi Pillows) were a little under-seasoned and underwhelming. I got the chicken, and it was over cooked and burnt on the bottom. Flavors were good, and I suspect it would have been a nice dish if prepared properly. My guest got the special, which was BBQ short ribs. Great flavor, but again it was overcooked and on the dry side.
I really love the interior design, location, and overall idea of this restaurant. However the food does not seem to be on par with other restaurants for the price, so it will be tough to justify going back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic restaurant...itFantastic restaurant...it had incredible food and the waiter was great. I would say it is the best restaurant I have found in salt lake city. I will definitely go again!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizer to dessert, PalletAppetizer to dessert, Pallet was fantastic.

We will be back for sure!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous First Experience!I have a ton of food allergies and the menu was very accommodating. Delicious food! We Loved the ambiance of the restaurant.

I am always stoked to find a restaurant that I want to show off to out of town visitors. Salt Lake's dining scene is richer for the addition of Pallet!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood meal once againPallet is one of the new gems in salt lake. Once again my wife and I had great meals.
