    It was my husband's birthday and a friend recommended the Palm as their speciality is steak. For the steak lover who knows quality steaks this is the place to go. Steaks were full of flavour, juicy and cooked to perfect. The staff were very friendly and happy and were very hospitable, excellent service. Extensive winelist and the cocktails are on point definitely recommend the Sincity. The Palm Too is definitely on my list of favorites and I will be returning.

    We all worked together in 1966 at the National Cash Register Company (NCR) Once a year we have a little get together. One of our fellow workers, comes to NYC once a year. He insists on paying the bill so we oblige our friend by letting him. Obviously he is very successful and this is his way of getting us all together to share in his success. Thank you Bob for a great time and a wonderful meal.

    Just a short walk from our ONE UN hotel to a delightful repast. The waitstaff all attentive and helpful in making choices; my husband had an unusually tasty Caesar salad and Porterhouse Steak & I had the create-your-own Surf & Turf with half a 4 lb lobster & a 9 oz filet. We left sated and grateful. We sat next to a couple of charming letters from the mid-30's to the original owners and tried to identify the caricatures on the walls. Clear that this has been a meeting place for writers, artists, musicians, sports figures & other celebrities for almost a full century. It was great.

    With all the tremendous dishes they have, steak lobster my family loves the prime rib. I have to agree it is the best I ever had but I can never go without my filet mignon the sides were as awesome as ever. And I can never leave without having some cheesecake and they're fabulous chocolate cake Great dinner.

    The service was amazing - however, I was disappointed in my starter which was the Colossal Crab Cocktail - the crab meat tasted like defrosted chicken and had quite an amount of water in it - not good at all. Had the surf and turf with the New York strip steak and that was amazing.

    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.

    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.
