    Greeted by some older man who seated me at a table by the busy kitchen door. When I asked him for another possibility he said something like... it is what it is, no other tables. He dropped the menus on the table & walked away. Okay then, so much for hospitality. I've eaten at the Palm Too before and many other Palms. We're it not for convenience I'd eat at Morton's every time. The filets were just okay, rather gray looking. The side of brussel spouts were very good as we're the tomato salad and wedge salads. But all in all, no wow factor, no foodies reason to return. No class. Just a small side of hospitality would go a very long way. I'm tired of this old guard attitude in this new world food city. Steak should be fabulous not gray...

    I wish I would have visited earlier (I would have returned for seconds) in my trip to NYC, but I only found out about this place on Thursday night from a fellow diner at James Beard House. I just loved the ambience of this place, the staff, and the hosts. Everything was top notch; from the service to the meal. My waiter Steve was perfect in all respects. If I ever visit NYC again, this restaurant is at the top of my list.

    We have had some lovely dinners at Palm Too, so we decided to invite some steak loving friends to have lunch with us there. Our calamari arrived at the table after apparently sitting somewhere for a while. It was already starting to get soggy and was lukewarm. The Caesar salads had no flavor, and the crab cakes were too salty to eat. Our friends left most of their steak salads on their plates. On the plus side, the service was attentive and friendly.

    The Palm Too continues to be one of the best lunch options for Midtown East. It has a great power lunch menu as well as excellent salad alternatives such as the Lobster Salad.

    I was celebrating a birthday as I noted with Open Table. I guess that was not conveyed to the staff at the restaurant since they sang for at least another 3 parties there that night and not for me. At least my family stuck a fork into our dessert and sang Happy Birthday.

    Palm Too was noisy and crowded. We were seated next to the kitchen. The food was terrible and expensive. There were no options for a moderately priced bottle of wine (I don't thing $96 counts as moderately priced, as was suggested by our waiter). This was nothing short of a total disappointment. I will never go back nor will I recommend this restaurant or its affiliates to anyone.

    The Palm Too is great. Always a warm greeting at the door from the managers, Gus and Pic, nice and comfortable booth, attentive and well informed service and wonderful food and adult beverages. I had the Gigi salad and grilled swordfish and my associate had a half head of lettuce and the ribeye steak with shared sautéed spinach, accompanied by a bottle of Hess wine. Everything was prepared perfectly and cooked exactly as ordered. And they use the best of everything in their kitchen so our high expectations are always met or exceeded. Skipped dessert, too full. Additionally, one of the few places where steak, fish and Italian specialties all wonderful so something for everyone's taste.

    I arrived early for my noon reservations. Although they were technically closed, the owner-manager seated me and offered water and bread. The specials for the day were fabulous. The Power Lunch was reasonably priced, good portions, and delicious. Lots of attention by the server. The owner/manager came by to be sure that everything was going well. Just what you would expect from a five star eatery. Perhaps the interior could use some renovations, but then on the other hand, the rustic feeling added to the charm.

    My wife and I have been going to the Palm (now One) since the late seventies. I have to say that this is the first time that I left wondering what happened. I was one of those people who are unconditionally on the "Palm or nothing" category, nothing else even comes close. No other steakhouse can compare for me. I was very disappointed by the service, lack of interest, general sense of being ignored for the first time. In addition, the side dishes came so late that the steaks were cold by the time we could eat them.There was a sense of "nobody in charge" and even the men's room did not look very clean. I am not sure what happened and sincerely hope that this was a one time weird experience. I will stick to Palm One from now on.

    Been here before, and I guess last time I was here it was early in the evening so it was more comfortable and more quieter, I guess because it was later in the evening it was more crowded and this time I was put right in front of the kitchen, I mean my table was the table right in front of the doors, and So what was suppose to be a romantic dinner with my significant other, became a NOT romantic dinner and a mood killer, :) But the service from Carlo was great, and the food was really good. So will I come back? ofcourse I will because Palm is definitely one of my top 5 Restaurants that I like.

    Summer time promotion for lobster works for me and my friends. Shared their special 5 pound lobster special with a friend. We both enjoyed the "bargain" and the great tasting lobster. They couldn't steam the lobster but even broiled it was still moist. Their Ceaser salad was nothing to rave about. The lettuce didn't appear especially fresh. And the dressing was more like I'd expect from a bottle. However, the side of string beans, steamed with garlic, was done to perfection, crisp and buttery. Because we had to wait beyond our appointed time we received desserts on the house. The cheese cake and chocolate cake were delicious...and huge.
