Excellent French food in a lovely intimate setting. Service is impeccable. We highly recommend both the salmon & the tournedos. The chocolate dessert was my favorite but the crime brûlée was a first runner up.

Le Palais is a little neighborhood restaurant in Kentlands which I would never expected to find such really good French food! The place is small and only open for dinner. The chef actually calls to confirm the reservation himself so they operate on a very...More

Le Palais is located in the the Kentlands neighborhood of Gaithersburg. It is a small and kind of cozy restaurant (maybe 20 tables). While there is view of the street they had the shades set in a way that doesn't really allow any view in...More
