    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.

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    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.

    We started with a bottle of Malbec. that was very smooth. For appetizers we each had a Caesar salad. We did not want to get too full for the5 pound lobster that was steamed and accompanied by a side of half and half cottage fries and onion rings. The lobster was steamed just right so it was quite tasty. The cottage fries and onion rings were not too greasy. As you can tell, we just hated our meal. We will be back again real soon.

    Food and service were fine. Unfortunately, when we arrived, with a reservation, and requested a booth, there was a half hour wait for a booth so we opted to be seated immediately at a non-booth table. The really unfortunate part came when we were seated next to a 4 top of 2 couples who were loud and obnoxious through the entire meal. They were seated when we arrived and were still in 'high' gear when we left---early with out coffee or dessert just to 'escape' these really dreadful people ---interestingly, the women were the loudest and had total potty mouths. Not one sentence was spoken without a loud four letter word! Others were equally appalled as we all 'communicated' via glances and rolling eyes. Palm Too should have removed them!

    The Filet mignon is always exceptional, vegetables a bit overcooked even though we requested the asparagus grilled not sauteed, they still were overdone and the woody ends were not trimmed. The Gigi East Coast salad to start is a great way to begin, always refreshing. Our waitperson put our 837 points on someone else's card, this is the second time this happened and now they are worth less then they used to be. That was one of the perks of eating here since the prices are so high. The staff seemed a bit sleepy perhaps it's the weekend summer shift?
