    Crabmeat cocktail at $24 was significantly overpriced. Good quality but small portion. Swordfish steak entree was well prepared and tasty. Wine prices are also significantly above standard markup for similar restaurants. Overall, not a good value for dinner compared to similar establishments.

    The noise level was horrific! You could not hear you party next to you! There must be something wrong with the acoustic design because we never experienced such a noise in the place with no band, DJ , just people. Also, the server, the young girl was absolutely not well prepared to serve. She let us wait very long time for everything, including to pay the bill ! Not very good manners also. We've expected to have such a nice evening in this well known place but we've met only disappointment .

    The food is always good to excellent. Drinks are always perfect! The sides & salads are getting very pricey. I understand that beef prices have gone up, but spinach, green beans, salad???? This has cause us to spend a lot less and drink a lot less at The Palm. They use to have great dinner specials in both price and selection but not anymore. We miss them. We hope they bring back the 1/2 price drink specials this winter. We would spend more when they had them but felt like it was worth it.

    We dined at the AC Palm last weekend. As usual the food was well above average- and the service was excellent! As return customers, we were greated by name and welcomed back - we got our favorite wait person without requesting him - it was aready noted. All in all a relaxing enjoyable meal in a trendy, well managed estalishment.

    My girlfriend and I were celebrating our 3 year aniversary and we chose The Palm because we are frequent visitors. The food and service was excellent but not this time around. Waiter did not make us feel welcome and felt out of place. Sometimes he didn't even check up on us to see how we were doing, the server in training did it. We ordered drinks that we didn't like and the waiter didn't ask if he could get us something else to drink. The waiter failed to go over the menu with us and pricing for specials and what's the price of a surf and turf..I paid 116 dollars on myself which is insane for a surf and turf. If I knew a lobster tail cost me 60 dollars I would wouldn't have gotten it.

    The Palm in Atlantic City never disappoints. It was our 20th wedding anniversary. The wait staff was excellent. We were warmly greeted and quickly seated. Food as always was excellent. I don't think we've ever had a bad meal there. We always recommend it.

    Great time, great food!! I brought a friend and we both loved the service, and the food was fantastic. The wait staff made suggestions on how to save a few bucks and made some wine suggestions that were spot on. Never had poor service or a bad meal at the Palm! Every time I have gone to the Palm I feel like I am part of the family. Way to go and you have convinced my buddy to come back, even without me!

  • poorly handled outburst by patron
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    While sitting in the bar/dining area, a fellow in the booth directly across from us saw fit to start screaming to 'shut the F up" to his female partner. This guy was raging mad as he continued to repeat this at least 6 more times. He then left. Probably 15 mins. later he comes right back in and starts it again. At one point I asked the guy to cool it, since the Palm staff was doing nothing. After he left I asked our waiter why no one on the staff did anything, and was told me they were getting ready to. What were they waiting for? I was further disappointed that no one came to our table or any other table to apologize for this obnoxious behavior of their patron. This is not some shot and beer joint where u may expect to encounter this.

    My husband & I were very excited to enjoy the Palm for our anniversary dinner this past weekend. From the moment we walked in the service was wonderful. The wine list did not disappoint. It was a great selection and priced reasonably. We ordered a 15 ounce lobster tail and the bone-in rib eye. While, the lobster tail was delicious the steak that was served was not up to standard that I would expect from a fine dining established. It was on the smaller side and very thin. It had none of the flavor that a bone-in steak would provide. For that price point, I expected much better.

    Want crazy over the lobster or butter sauce or the clams casino. The potatoes au gratin was blah tastes like flour. The tiny bottle of soda they give you is over priced over $4 each! The chicken parm wasn't that great. I wouldn't go back.

    SOme places just get it right. The filet mignon perfect taste color temp etc The 3 cheese potato a delight and the creamed spinach always good The breads and rolls quite good. The 4 hands merlot quite nice for beef. The chocolate floured cake the best one could ask for and the presentation is always a marquis moment with the chocolate, vanilla cream sauce, the raspberry coulee and the sprig of mint. PERFECTION

    Based on an Opentable review, I visited this location on a Tuesday evening, Sept 9th. The staff must not have expected any more than a handful of people as they seemed overwhelmed. Late with menus, drink orders and bread did not arrive until midway through the appetizer course. The recommended "salad" was minced tomatoes and more resembled salsa than anything else. I left the dish nearly untouched and was whisked away without a question. The main course came before my dinner companion had slogged through his slabs of tomato and mozzarella. The house specialty "Veal Martini" was inedible and again cleared without comment. While we were ignored, another party of six had the full attention of the entire waitstaff. Lucky them..I guess

    Based on our experiences in NYC and Las Vegas, expecting terrific. Not the case.Service was jagged, not what is expected for the reputation and price. While nice, our very pregnant server was just there. Other specials being offered at the next table were not offered, long periods of time without-restaurant was not at all busy. No pouring of wine or Pellegrino. Steaks were good, but no lemon in the Brussel sprouts as described (nor caramelized or cut?) and nary a taste of goat cheese in the mashed potatoes. Whole experience was a level BELOW the other locations. The table was not wiped (crumbed) after the main, but we mentioned it was our anniversary and she did bring strawberries in whipped cream, so that was a nice gesture.
