Booked here based on reviews and menus. Called for a booking. Arrived and were seated. Waited about 10 minutes to be acknowledged by a server who offered water. Placed drink order. And waited. Then my husbands beer was served with an apology for my martini...being delayed? Just serve them at the same time! Ordered salmon salad and bang bang shrimp for starters and mains of cod and scallops. Starters arrived. They were very good. Waitstaff returned, I requested a water refill and a glass of wine. The started plates remained uncleared so long that I eventually got up and put them and the empty beer can on another table. We got the mains which were also excellent. Server seemed surprised we hadn't kept our cutlery and had to get some more. Decided to cut our losses at that point and paid the bill and left. Such a shame the service was so awful, marring an excellent meal of food.More

Look no further for a place to eat in Fredericton! Excellent food and service! My mom and I both had the lemon meringue salmon and it was DIVINE! Each mouthful was exploding with flavour! We returned for lunch the next day (menu is different for...lunch and dinner) and I had the roasted veggie panini and upgraded my side to a lemon quinoa salad (w/Greek yogurt & pistachios) - again, delicious, so perfect for a summer day! Each day, they feature a different soup, a “blue plate” which is a sandwich and a pasta creation. I highly recommend! Shoutout to Kelcie, our wonderful and attentive server!More

The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The food was well prepared, especially the intro salads (fresh). And the service was friendly and efficient. It’s much larger than I expected, which makes it uncrowded. A good choice.

It was delicious! And a moderate price. Our server was friendly and attentive. The maple vinaigrette on the salad was phenomenal. He created a white sangria that was the best I’ve had. Highly recommend! Ohh and we topped it off with a chocolate crème brûlée...mmmMore

We didn't know about date night Tuesday when we planned our visit, but glad we chose that night. Pre fixe dinner includes shared appetizer, main and dessert. We started with baked brie and both had the salmon, large portion nicely cooked. Sticky toffee cake is...not to be missed. Pleasant service.More

On a busy Valentine’s Day, the service was excellent, only to be surpassed by the food itself: the scallop risotto with beet gastrique was sublime; the affogato with biscotti and a shot of Baileys was the best possible ending to a delicious meal.

First, their date night special is fantastic! Only problem you will have is that you will likely want to taste more of the delicious dishes!

Super busy night during Harvest Fest we were greeted quickly and seated at the bar. All the staff were super busy despite being packed! Orders were taken relatively quickly, food came out piping hot and delicious wife had the Lemon Meringue Salmon and I had...the Shrimp Scampi. We had the four bite brownie for desert and a couple delicious local beers! Great place to check out!More

We had a great experience at the Palate restaurant last night. The food was so good. They have a date night special on Thursday nights. Extremely well priced. We enjoyed everything we had. I had a yummy pasta and my husband had the Korean fried...chicken both were delicious. We shared the Caesar salad and the crème brûlée. Very well prepared and artfully served. The restaurant has a very lively and fun vibe. It was extremely busy. I love a busy fun atmosphere. Our server, Curtis was excellent. Very nice and knowledgeable. We both really enjoyed him. I really like a friendly and funny server. It adds so much to the experience. We eat in restaurants a lot and I must say that this restaurant really ticked all the boxes for us. Fantastic service, delicious food, great atmosphere. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Fredericton.More

My son and his wife took myself and her Mom out on Friday night for a belated Mother's Day Dinner at 6 pm. We had the grandchildren who are 3 years and 1 and a half and didn't realize that they are too young to...be contented to sit in a restaurant so we ended up getting our meals packed up to go. OUr server was the sweetest and so great and she accomodated us and got the kids meals right away and got coloring books for them. Our food was excellent even though we had to take it out and we apologized to our server for the kids not being able to sit still and she was so sympathetic and so understanding.. We will definitely be back (minus little ones lol) and give your restaurant a definite 5!More

We have started to dine out indoors again during this hopefully waning pandemic. We have been to a few restaurants lately which have been generally OK but found their steaks tough and overpriced. Steak at the Palate has always been good, so when we went...to the Palate for a Valentines Day dinner I was looking forward to having their steak again. Our server Craig was pleasant and efficient and things moved along at pleasant pace. The menu had a few changes since our last visit. We shared a tasty Thai salad and my wife had the Korean fried chicken which was unique and enjoyable. I had the strip loin with Cajun butter on a bed of mashed potatoes, along with onions, mushrooms and fire roasted red pepper, asparagus and zucchini. It was delicious and as good as I’ve had anywhere. The wine list is short but adequate and not overpriced. The dessert menu was temptIng but we were already quite full and opted for coffee. It was a very pleasant dining experience and it is highly recommended.More
