    The Palace is a great place to meet friends, family and large groups before attending the Capitol or any function really. Food and wine choices were great and after a few small issues with the cost of happy hour and pay register issues, the party was started. Staff were attentive to fix any problems, especially the waitress making the cocktails. That's important. Overall, a great place.

    We arrived at 11.30 and it was very busy. My husband and i ordered by 11.40 the rest of our party took a bit longer as it was busy. After we had paid we were told there was a long wait 30 to 40 mins. We were there for the matinee show at the capital. Had we known before we paid we would have gone elsewhere. Our food came at 12.40pm . The burger was cold , the caesar salad looked great but no time to eat it , Snag bol was good and the ones that had that managed to rush it down and said it was ok. We order squid it came in tiny and I do mean tiny rings and hard. I did complain and was told there was trouble with the burgers being cold and adviced that next time book for 11 a.m at the latest as the kitchen was small. I think at time of booking this should have been adviced. But.. having said that matinee days are always busy and may be they need extra staff and some foods can be made in advance e.g the Snag Bol. We were most disapointed . I have been there before and found it fine but this time it was rubbish.

    Sadly our reservation didn’t result in us getting a table though they did rush around and clean up a table inside but it was so noisy and we didn’t get the pre theatre menu so cost us more...at least they got us our meals quickly. First two items selected were off the menu and this was st 6.30pm so disappointing. Settled on pasta which was delicious but probably wouldn’t go back given the problems we experienced.

    We arrived and ordered at 11.30 , the first meals arrived at 12.20 , we asked when the others would arrive and were told immediately . One meal didn't arrive after three clarifications of the order by the wait staff . Two of the three that did arrive were incorrect . Very disappointed after we chose to go there following positive reviews on here.

    Book well ahead, you will struggle to get a table without one. It's worth a booking for a pre-theatre drink and pub grub.

    Service was a bit so as there was a large hens party group in having lunch. But still nice food as always.

    Chicken parmy is definitely substantial! Can't complain at $12 Tiger jugs either. Food menu can be a little pricey but the servings are very generous. The dining tables in the arcade area are a little open and lacking atmosphere, but it's not really an issue as it's good for after work drinks and pre-theatre grub.

    The palace is very understaffed. It took 15 minutes lined up at the bar to order food and drink and then a further 45 minutes till our order of 5 pizzas arrived. This meant a very rushed eating experience to be able to make our show. The food however was very good and the young staff very apologetic. I wouldn’t go there again before a show. To stressful.

    Booked a table for 12.30 in an outdoor area. No table was provided for us. We had to move together our own tables in an inside spot.
