    Remember this restaurant from last year, it was really good. Came back this year, and what a disappointment. Food really changed for worst. Feel like We were cheated with overpriced food in the restaurant that pretends to be hi end, but really is not.

    I was severely injured in a freak bicycle accident/fall over 4th of July weekend on the new Somers Point to Ocean City Bridge (I wore a helmet, otherwise I'm told I would've died on impact; please wear helmets - always!), and have been out of work since (it's Labor Day weekend as I write this). My guy knew I needed a night out badly, so I put on a dress, took my pain meds, grabbed my cane, and off we went to Palm for its 4-lb shared lobster special, luscious lobster bisque, creamed spinach, and one of the best chocolate martinis I've ever had (shhhh, don't tell my docs!). Not only was the food delic, but the presentation was great and the service was friendly and fun, just the way I like it! We'll be back!

    We went to celebrate my birthday and were not disappointed. The service was outstanding and our lobster dinner for 2 was delicious. The only down side was paying $18.50 for a cosmopolitan. I will definitely return and highly recommend it.

  • excellent but pricey
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/27/2014
    Food and service were excellent my only small complaint is I think the servers have been trained to up sell the wine by the glass. I ordered a glass of pino grigio, the servers replied they had two and said she thought the second one was way better than the first. I said i will take it then, when the check came ,it was $18 a glass,then I remembered they had done the same thing when we dined with another couple about 6 months back. my husbands Double Cross dirty martini was $14 , that's a very high end vodka and a glass of wine should not cost that much more. the staff should at least let you know the pricing.

    The lobster dinner and fresh vegetables were delicious. The service was pleasant and efficient; they even enlarged the table to accommodate the large lobster plates. The space between the tables allowed for the four of us to fully enjoy conversation. The only annoying part of the evening was the constant reaching across the table when there was ample room to serve or remove a plate by my side. When I suggested the server walk around the table instead of reaching across people, I was given a look like I was requesting the impossible. I was uncomfortable pushing the issue.

  • Would You Like Fries With That?
    qwerty
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    At McDonalds you expect the "upsell" "would you like fries with that?" At a high end restaurant such as the Palm it is annoying to constantly being subjected to the "upsell." After ordering the four pound lobster dinner, I didn't need to be asked if I wanted the five pound lobster. Then after the appetizer arrived, I was asked if I wanted to add a steak to my lobster dinner. This behavior by the waitstaff is encouraged by management. I did not appreciate it.

    I'm a big fan of Palm and try to dine their each time I visit Atlantic City (aside from visiting their NYC locations). I am never disappointed. The ambience is always nice. The dining area appearance is always clean and neat perfection. The staff is extraordinary. I don't think they have a peer in the industry. And the food is outstanding.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Two of our meals were very disappointing. One was burnt and we mentioned it to waitress. I expected a partial credit on my bill for the burnt portion and mentioned it when it was not reflected on my bill. The waitress said since they provided 2 dishes of whipped cream w/cherries for 2 birthdays there was no credit. Just ridiculous!!!!

    The food and service at this restaurant is top quality! However, the wine list is a bit pricey. Best to go with the 9 oz. glass if you opt to drink wine. Martini's and other cocktails are the best for your buck.

    My wife and I have been to the Palm in Atlantic City on many occasions and have never been disappointed. From the moment that you enter the restaurant you get the feeling of a first rate experience. The entire staff is receptive to your every need and always at your beck and call. The food. I cannot say enough about the food. We started off with appetizers of Clams Casino and French Onion soup. Both were as good as you could possibly ask for. My wife had her first clam and the words out of her mouth were " oh my goodness, I cannot believe how good these taste". My French Onion Soup was the best I have ever tasted. The entree, Filet with a crab topping was to die for. This was not our first visit and certainly not our last.

    We go weekly to the Palm. It is amazing how they are always perfect. Scott the bartender makes you feel like family and also makes fantastic drinks. Anthony the manager is like a mother hen constantly checking to make sure every diner is happy with their meals. The place is exceptionally clean also. The only thing missing is tissues in the Men's room. We always recommend the Palm to our friends and they have never be disappointed.

    1st time at the Palm. It was our 29th wedding anniversary and wanted a nice meal. What we got was Outstanding from our Bacon wrapped scallops and Lobster Bisque. To my 24oz ribeye cooked to perfection & my wife's 15oz Lobster Tail. the complete dinner was great and the desert fantastic. Our waiter Anthony was great always there without bothering you every five minutes. All in all a great experience. Will be going again soon. Ask about the 827 club I joined good deal.
