Palette provides a comforting, sophisticated dining experience. From the moment you step in (in our case, from the snowstorm on Saturday Jan 7) you are welcomed and warmed. The first floor decor and lighting are comforting. We dined on the 2nd floor, which was slightly...More

A few years ago I wrote saying that Palette Bistro was my favorite restaurant in Petoskey. Now, after moving to the area (instead of just visiting) and eating at many other good restaurants in the area, I can say that Palette Bistro remains the top...More

We travelled here in August and enjoyed the best Gluten Free pizza ever. The view from upstairs is terrific. The ambiance is fun and friendly. They seem to also have seating for larger groups. Will return.

The food is delicious, the wait staff are very professional and there is a beautiful view of the lake. Never had bad service or food anytime I have been there.
