    From the moment we arrived it was terrible. Thrown in a booth at back of restaurant. Waiter could not have cared less about us. 10 minutes we sat with no drinks. Then finally waiter came quickly asked what we wanted then rushed off. Did not even get the chance to ask for water until he came back to ask what we wanted for out main meal. Ordered main meal and when it arrived it was slapped down. Waiter did not ask if we needed anything like sauces etc he just rushed off. He did not once come back during meal to ask if everything was ok. After main meal was cleared drinks were cleared and we were never asked if we wanted another.absolutely shocking service and will never return to palm New York. Dined in orlando palm abs this is brilliant.

    Whenever my husband craves lobster, this is our go-to restaurant. The Palm has not given in to the latest food fads by changing its menu or decor, and it doesn't have to. The service is impeccable and the lobster, in particular, is simply the best.

    We went for our son's 40. Birthday. Everything was great - food, service, etc.- except for the noise level. Although we were given the quietest location possible, when the room filled, it was quite noisy and hard to have a conversation without raising your voice.

    I found the location to be perfect for a business lunch. I knew what I wanted to order and the food was prepared well. Plus, it wasn't too full, so getting a table and food quickly was easy. The restaurant can be a little pricey, which may explain the fullness of the dining room, but in all other aspects, it was a great fit for my needs.

    The waiters were good, despite both the water and the drink ordered taking some time before being received. I was able to get the waiters attention in a timely manner. They were attentive in that manner. My lobster was chewy as in overcooked. The deserts were wonderful. Perhaps, I had heard so much about the Palm that I expected more. It was noisy.

  • Is that lobster really 5 lbs.?
    Dave
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Dissapointing. Poor service. Long wait to order drinks. Bread came late. The appetizers arrived before the drinks. The 5 pound lobster has a tail the size of a 1 1\2 pounder. We were told it was because it was a male lobster. Guess we should have ordered a female lobster. I used to eat here frequently and always enjoyed the experience. Maybe this happens when a small restaurant chain expands too much. No more for me. I won't be back.

    There are lots of very good steakhouses in NYC. Palm makes a good steak, don't get me wrong, but the service is slow and the food is too expensive for what you get.The drinks were superb, but likewise, you don't go to a steakhouse for the cocktails. You're better off going to Smith & Wollensky on 3rd.

    The steak was not cooked right,it was charred on one side and grey on all the other sides. The waiter forgot what we order throughout the night and was slow at bringing drinks to the table. The lobster was mushy and over cooked and seamed smaller then ordered. I have eaten at other Palm restaurants ( Atlantic City ) and the meal was 5 stars perfect.

    The food is consistently good, especially the beef. Patrons come back so often that you feel there is a family link between them and the waiters. The ambience is unique, but the noise does not allow a conversation.

    The Palm is a true throwback NY steakhouse. This was our first time back at the original Palm in about 15 years and It's as good as it ever was. The summer lobster special is a great value. Strip steak was also superb as were all the sides. Laid back atmosphere, but the service is still top notch.

    This restaurant had very poor food taste and not much better preparation. The food was bland. A family of 4 had dinner before a show which cost over$ 270 and the only item that was delicious was the calamari. The crab cakes were bland as was tha ahi tuna . The tuna was not cooked correctly nor were the lamb chops my son ordered. The outside of the chops were completely burned and without seasoning. Stick with Smith and Wolensky's or del Friscos. At least the food is well worth the expense.

    We went for a special family birthday celebration. We were all satisfied with the many choices from the menu as well as the daily specials. The appetizers of shrimp cocktail and crab cocktail were large and delicious. Filet Mignon was superb and excellent fish choices as well. (The relish accompanying the swordfish was different and yummy.) Palm offered everything that a great Steak House should. We were all very happy with the evening. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. We have no complaints...only rave reviews. Will definitely dine there again.

    We frequent the Palm in Washington, DC, and have been to Palm Too often. But this visit to Palm was completely out of the norm, mostly due to very poor service and a tiny dining room dominated by a very raucous party. We ordered cocktails ahead of dinner and when they were delivered, the wine list disappeared, never to return. We intended to order a bottle! Our cocktail glasses disappeared and we were not offered a second or a glass of wine. We had to ask twice for lemon slices for our water. Another waiter finally brought them. We ordered a shared dessert and coffee. A refill never offered. Several diners complained about the noise in the dining room, but the party remained rowdy and disruptive. Waiter also overcharged for our dessert.

    I discovered Palm a couple of months ago, and it's now one of my two favorite steakhouses. In fact, for pure flavor and taste in a steak, this is it. They have a great "Power Lunch." For $25.90 you get a choice of appetizer, entree and either a cheesecake or flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Treat yourself to the "half and half" side: it's half thin, crispy onion rings and half homemade potato chips! Heaven. That side is enough for two, so you may want to consider a real vegetable if you want to behave a little. You can join their 831 Club for free and get notified of events and earn points for future use. This place is great.

    This was the first time going to any of the Palm restaurants and my wife and I loved it. The mozzarella in the caprese salad was out of this world and the 14 oz strip steak was cooked perfectly. My wife had the veal parmasean which was the best she's ever had. It was also the biggest wine list I've seen at a restaurant. Service was great as well. It's a little pricey but worth the money for a special occasion. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    lobster was very good although they would not find us a female unless it was broiled ( we wanted ours steamed) told us they had no raisin rolls, ( they did) i guess the better service goes to men that come in and order lots of alcohol and steaks.

    Had a colleague in town for dinner meeting and being that he lives in land locked middle America, we opted for the lobster special and a side of beef. The restaurant was too loud to hold any conversation. The waiter was fairly obnoxious with regards to hovering over our table during the meal. The lobster was mediocre at best, with dried out claws and definitely not its stated size. Much better options exist even at the deal price
