Protégé is an upscale casual restaurant featuring New American cuisine and a comprehensive wine & spirits program. The vision of Master Sommelier, Dennis Kelly and Chef Anthony Secviar, Protégé brings the attention to detail found in the finest restaurants to a casual setting in Palo Alto, California.


We offer several different experiences at Protégé:

- An à la carte menu inside our Lounge, at our Bar Top, and outside on our Patio. As of 12/14 we will no longer be seating our Patio.

- A 7-course tasting menu only in our Dining Room

Due to limited seating and strong demand, we have reserved your table for the à la carte experience for up to 2 hours.

We will hold your reservation for a grace period of 15 minutes before offering the reservation to our waitlist. To change or cancel your reservation, please email us at reservations@protegepaloalto.com.
