    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

    The Atlantic City outpost of the Palm is an excellent choice for a steak dinner. Outstanding service from Yasser; and salads, steaks, sides and dessert were all perfect.

    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.

The Palm did not let me down!! The food was Great, and the Service was Amazing. I will be back whenever I come to AC!!!! Thanks Again.

    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!

    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.

    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.
