Definitely a new favorite! Went here for a friends birthday, it's not too formal but more than casual. We had reservations on a Saturday and was sat promptly. Service was excellent and friendly. My husband is very chatty and jokes, the server was not uptight and extremely relaxed yet speedy with our service. ALL food was amazing from the Brie... More

Decided to head back to a local favorite in Cary for our Valentine's Day dinner. Chef's Palette was outstanding with a special menu for the occasion. We had Twin Crab Cakes and also the Seafood Trio. And had the beet salad to kick things off. Each item was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent. I love seafood and very... More

Went for Wednesday night trivia last week (Feb 2017). Good beer selection. I had a hamburger and my wife had a salad. Both very good. Desserts are killer! Just order one and split it. Neither of us could finish ours. Trivia guy did a great job. We're going back.

Great dinner. Food was excellent. Highly recommend the beet salad and chicken carbonara. Service was also good. A little pricey but worth it for special occasions.

This restaurant features an Italian night on Thursdays with a prix fixe menu for the month of January. The $20 for three courses includes a choice of house or Caesar salad, one of three special entrees, and a choice of three desserts, as well as a special Chianti for $6 glass. Of course the full restaurant menu was available too,... More

We have visited twice with other couples and are definitely going back. Their $5 taco night is two very large gourmet tacos picked from a handful of recipes. We have also had excellent sandwiches there. The fine dining side is pricey so we are planning to become regulars on the bar side. Ask about beer specials, sometimes it is cheaper... More

I was glad that I reviewed the menu online before dining at Chef's Palette with my husband and our teenage son. The staff was friendly and the menu intriguing, but the prices were on the higher side of what I would expect to pay. My son ordered the filet mignon as he usually does when offered on a restaurant menu.... More

We were a group of 5 on a Monday evening. The restaurant was almost empty. Drink orders were taken in a timely manner; appetizers were ordered at the same time. Drinks came in about 25 minutes, the appetizers, which had recommended by the waiter, took over an hour—and they were not anything difficult to make. Dinner came about an hour... More
