My coworker and I only were able to enjoy this town tonight and decided to try Palette Bistro. It was excellent! First class customer service from our knowledgeable waitress Shelby. Folks, this is how a dining experience should be and then above and beyond. The...More

Nice table with bay views. Watched a storm roll in. I had fish gyro and my wife had the featured quiche. Finished it off with French press coffee and rice pudding. Everything excellent and fresh. Many tempting items on the menu.
