Don't miss the Eggs Benedict for breakfast! Enjoy the variety of juices and the fresh coffee or hot tea and enjoy the views of the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI!

Palettes came highly recommended by our airbnb host. It did not disappoint. The food was delicious and flavorful. The key lime pie was perfect and our server was great.

The new location is not an old building, but it is an intimate setting with several small rooms and a pretty piano bar. The food was very well prepared. A good place for a special occasion.

My family and I went to Paulette's tonight and our server was Donna, who we have had before! She is so friendly and helpful and provides amazing service. Ask for her by name!

Beautiful setting and lovely restaurant. Good wine selection but food failed to meet the mark, at least for us. Steak over cooked, fish bland. Delicious dessert though.

On mud Island in Rivertown this is a little bit of heaven. Whenever I am in Memphis my favorite place to go is Paulett's. Hungarion Goulash, popovers and their dessert crepes are the best I have ever found. The last time I was there owner George Falls came and sit down and talk with me. He is such a kind... More

Our server, Betty, went above and beyond to see that we were taken care of. Her kind disposition and willingness to assist us was perfect. The food we were served was amazing, especially the crepes for dessert... More
