Awesome place, but consider carefully whether you really need to pay these prices. Beautifully decorated, expertly staffed, well-organized. Hot servers, usually. Itís a Tom Douglas place, which means itís going to leave most people completely satisfied, but also means it has a promotion budget to pay for. Tom Douglas smoked Morimoto on Battle Salmon on Iron Chef America. I know Morimoto is so good that heís half chef, half artist--but any Seattleite could have told them that pitting anyone against Douglas in Battle Salmon would have resulted in a walkover. The food is spectacular, the cocktails are spectacular, the total on your bill is a spectacle as well. The beers are local, well-cared-for, and available almost anywhere else in town (anywhere thatís a beer bar). If food and cocktails are the main priorities of the group, you the beer lover will neither be forgotten nor dazzled.

ambiance is nice, dark, and spacious, good view of the grill.
service was good, the bartender was very attentive.
selection of 6 taps, and about 15 bottles. they also had a well stocked bar if you happen to be out with your wife, they also use fresh squeezed juice for drinks.
price of the brews are about the same as all the other places in seattle.

This is more a restaurant than a bar, but a great place to get a drink. The food is very good (but expensive), and the draft beer selection is comprised entirely of Pacific Northwest microbrews (Haleís, Baron, Leavenworth, Boundary Bay, etc.). The selection of local beers wins them poiints in my book. Palace Kitchen is a great place to get excellent food and a good beer.
