    We ate here for our last night staying at Hard Rock hotel because it's in the hotel and its reputation. Wow!!! From our waiter Alfredo (who is off the charts great!) to our food, this place is crazy good! We ate a shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque to start- HUGE shrimp, great bisque. Steaks came next- we both had filet cooked to perfection and a flourless chocolate cake to finish. Wow wow wow! It is pricey but worth every penny!

    ExceLlent service from all levels of the staff. Very attentive and informative. As usual, food was excellent and our lead server offered the appropriate guidance on several superb sides and entrees. Only regret was that the restaurant did not serve red onions and my specially made salad of tomatoes with anchovies had to include regular whites.

    This has been our go-to steakhouse for several years now. So, it's no surprise this is where I chose to celebrate my birthday. The special attention, including a birthday card was a nice treat on top of the excellent service, mouthwatering steaks, and genuinely caring staff made the evening another night to remember.

    We always dine at Capital Grilles, all over the country, however, this was our first time at a Palm Restaurant, although we have them here in New York City. All I can say is the food, service, etc. was over the top! I wish I could remember the name of our server, but I cannot. However, she was fabulous. We cannot wait to try one in Manhattan - and that will be very soon.

    I was entertaining a group and my steak was overcooked and I quietly tried to point it out to the mannger and he said cut it in the middle and I did and it was overcooked and he left. Rather than making a scene and upsetting the group I just didn't eat it.

    We cannot tell you how disappointed we were with our dinner. My husband is a 837 Club Member and eats at the Palm for business. My risotto was burned, my steak medium was well done and my husbands was able to eat only 6-7 bites of his veal chop. All this for only $244.00

    Lobsters(3,3lb) great, Salmon great, veal chop outstanding, but the shrimp dish, awful(over cooked and dry). Spending over $600.00 (including tip(not worth it) Sorry, I've eaten at the The Palm for more than 45 years, in N.Y. and later in Tampa. Bruce, it doesn't make me happy to write this.This doesn't mean I won't be back, just that I was disappointed.

    My wife, daughter and I love dining at The Palm. At a vacation in Florida already had dined at Emerils and Wolf Gang Puck in Downtown Disney. But still hadn't found that one restaurant then my wife noticed The Palm was in the Hard Rock and had to make a reservation. Our only gripe with this visit was we felt our waiter may have had one too many tables or forgot he was waiting on us. Most of the time it was three other waiters who helped us. But aside from not bagging our large carrot cake, empty glass, or not coming back to check on us. I ordered a 16oz ribeye medium well and received a med. rare. No biggie, but trying do go away from the rare steak. He never asked how steak was or asked for me to cut into steak.

    The food was not up to normal for the Palm on this evening! 2 Steaks we either under cooked and 1 of the 2, a Bone-in Rib Eye has this little 1" bone sticking out of the meat without any other bone in it...strange! App's and salads were all great and desert was their over the top usual! They took the bone-in Rib Eye off our bill as everyone, management included agreed it was sub par... One of our guests is also an 837 Club member and it was his wife who's steak was awful

    The bar served some interesting cocktails that were very tasty, including a spicy margarita. Food selections looked good on paper, but did not measure up to many of the steakhouses I've been to in the Boston area. This was probably in the top five most expensive meals the two of us have ever had, but nowhere near that remarkable. For example, the surf and turf included a decent steak and a huge but overcooked lobster tail. Our waitress was excellent, but her help was not as engaging. I would return here for the bar, not for dinner. As alternatives, for steak, there's a Fleming's nearby. Or Le Cellier at Epcot has a terrific filet. For Universal hotel options, Tchoup Chop at Royal Pacific was our favorite for food, ambiance and value.

    I always enjoy it here, if it's for work or personal the treatment received is always top-notch! Wait staff in the bar are great to get your first drink and prep for dinner. Michael the mgr is the best at what he does. Always interested in how the dinner is going and how he can help out. The dinners are always first rate with the finest meats and veggies. The fish is great but I always get the steaks.

    we had avoided the Palm because it was located in a tourist area. First 3 visits were great! This last time, our steaks didn't come out as ordered. I accepted mine because I ordered it well and sometimes it gets dried out. But my partner's steak had to be sent back 2 times before they got it right. management stepped up and took care of it but you don't expect this to happen at the Palm. A steakhouse should know how to cook a steak! The coffee and tea arrived after we had finished dessert--Wasn't a good day for this restaurant. Alex was our server and we enjoyed having him but he seemed to have tables all over the restaurant. Perhaps they weren't prepared for a crowded restaurant on Labor Day.

    I was expecting the food to be much better. The 14 oz new York strip I ordered contained at least 5 to 6 oz of fat that should have been trimmed. My fiancés filet was not the tender filet she expected either. Both steaks were not tender and tasty as a $50 entre should be. The vegetables were not tender either....asparagus was hard and fibrous and the Brussels sprouts were hard as rocks and not seasoned well. Also the potatoes were mostly smothered in cheese and not good. The only reason for going to this restaurant is because it is located in the hotel and is difficult travelling outside and inconvenient to go elsewhere. I would recommend the restaurant either upgrade its food or one should take extra time to go outside the hotel for

    Seated promptly by friendly host. Our waiter Alex was attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered the 4 lb lobster for 2, which was removed from the shell table side. The lobster bisque was well presented and had just a hint of "heat". We couldn't resist ordering the filet with porcine mushrooms & crab meat. The steak was cooked to perfection. The dessert menu was tempting but too much food. We will definitely be back!

    We went on this night because they had an offer to order any lobster and upgrade to the next size up for free. We opted to split the 5lb'r which was upgraded to the 6lb'r. We started with the lamb lollipops, Scallops-n-Bacon appy and a small salad. It was really busy but the food flow was great.

    The worst meal that we have ever had at the Palm. They promised a 5 lbs lobster but delivered a 2-3 pounder with a huge Claw that was from a different lobster. My claw was not even fully cooked. It was like they were cleaning out their freezer of old frozen claws. The booth we were sitting in was dirty and after he took our order, our waiter totally ignored us to wait on other tables. This was a $250 dinner disaster.

    My husband and I had the 4lb lobster for 2. It was so delicious that we went back the next night. It wasn't as good the second night but still delicious. It was a little under cooked on night 2. The part that was cooked was cooked perfectly and as for the under cooked part I was too full to even eat it. This was the 3rd time I had dined here and it was delious all 3 X. I will definitely be back.
