I was glad that I reviewed the menu online before dining at Chef's Palette with my husband and our teenage son. The staff was friendly and the menu intriguing, but the prices were on the higher side of what I would expect to pay. My son ordered the filet mignon as he usually does when offered on a restaurant menu.... More

We were so excited to find this little gem. We had their Black and Blue Pita and the French Dip. Both were incredible. I can't wait to go back and try some more things....great beer selection as well and even daily food and drink specials....

We were a group of 5 on a Monday evening. The restaurant was almost empty. Drink orders were taken in a timely manner; appetizers were ordered at the same time. Drinks came in about 25 minutes, the appetizers, which had recommended by the waiter, took over an hour—and they were not anything difficult to make. Dinner came about an hour... More

This restaurant is very close to our house, and we always say we should stop by. This weekend, we finally did, and we're glad we did. Upon entering, you have the choice being seated in the formal dining area, or grabbing a seat in the bar area. We chose the bar area, where you can order off either the bar... More

We chose to attend the "Italian Night" at Chef's Palette and were delighted! This was a birthday celebration and we were very pleased by how delicious the food was, how attentive the server was and what a great value the Thursday night "Italian Night" is. Generous salads, authentic main courses to choose from and desserts to-die-for! We will certainly try... More

The meal was very good. My husband and I had a great date night. These were not your average meals. They were very, very good. My husband and I plan on going back there again in the future for another date night. I highly recommend that you try this place out. The Futurism Flatbread was AWESOME!

Monday night, it was my birthday and we hadn't been in awhile so we decide to "give it a go". We decided to to have dinner instead of eating in the bar. Lexi was our server and she was fantastic! We're not wine snobs but we ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir and it was served in Pinot Noir glasses...small... More

There is a lack of good places to eat in the Holly Springs area in NC. Chefs Palette in Cary is on the border of Holly Springs and Cary and only about 10 mins away for us. We go there when we want a good meal and don't want to be disappointed. They have a great filet and the shrimp... More

WAS a lot of fun, but becoming too crowded - understaffed but food is good and staff is very attentive, when they come by.
