Description: Palette Bistro, located on the edge of downtown Petoskey, is a unique alternative in upscale casual dining. The food is innovative and pleasing. A Mediterranean inspired menu that evolves seasonally featuring small plates and rustic brick oven preparations. Complimented by carefully selected wines from Europe, Michigan Craft and Belgian Beers. The restaurant offers two floors of seating with stunning views of Little Traverse Bay, intimate lounges and al fresco dining.

Delicious food, reasonable prices for the high quality provided, wonderful view of Little Traverse Bay. The same sort of very imaginative menu and drinks as at the sister restaurant, the Park Grill. Had a late lunch that felt very festive and would have been happy to have had all our meals here but wanted to try other places, of course.

We had another fantastic meal at the Palette over the 4th of July. This year it was lunch looking down on Lake Michigan's vast expanse of sailboat dotted waters. Last year, we went for dinner and a sunset over the lake. Both the times the meals were outstanding, accompanied by excellent wine. Both times the view and ambiance were perfect. And the service, this year it was Chris, was exemplary. Anyone going to Petoskey should make a point of putting the Palette on the day's itinerary.

First time at this restaurant and we will be back! Beautiful interior with amazing views of the bay. Sunset was gorgeous. Shannon waited on us and couldn't have been friendlier! Attentive but not intrusive. Nice leisurely meal and we didn't feel rushed. The food choices were varied and the specials were amazing! The caprese salad with bacon and the house made hot Italian sausage with the polenta was so good we are still talking about days later! The sockeye salmon special was cooked perfectly!

Great drink specials, they also have small plates and nightly dinner specials. The menu changes periodically so that you don't get bored with their selections.

I think this is the best restaurant in Northern Michigan. Food and service is always great. The atmosphere and view of the Bay is special. You can't go wrong!
