Palm Restaurant - Tampa reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great food but over priced
    Canes5
    Dined on 3/23/2014
    This is a place to go if you have an unlimited expense account. You pay $30-$80 dollars an entree that doesn't come with ONE thing other than bread. Everything is a la carte. But the food and service were very good! I would not have went back had I not had a CL Deals coupon.

    Dined on 3/21/2014
    Whoever made the decision to close our Tampa Palm was terribly wrong! We have been to so many Palm Restaurants, but none even came close to our hometown Palm. The restaurant should have been relocated, so this wonderful team of professionals could have kept their jobs. Today is a sad day in Tampa.

    Calamari.. Very good, tender, fried perfectly, Caesar salad dressed perfectly, 14oz strip cooked medium... Very tender and flavorful. Chef's special was halibut with cheesy polenta, tomatoes and mushrooms. Probably the best fish I've ever eaten. Moist, meaty , perfect crust ... 7 layer chocolate cake for dessert!! Daughter's 17th birthday... They sang happy birthday and brought out a piece of key lime pie with a candle. Wonderful evening.

    The Palm Restaurant in Westshore Plaza is by far the best restaurant in the Tampa area. The food is spectacular. The steaks are tender and flavorful. The fish is fresh and delicious. The service is the best anywhere. And all of that is run by genuinely engaging and concerned management. Awesome for special occasions!

    The Palm is an excellent restaurant! Food, Service and Ambiance impeccable! Anticipates your needs and never rushes you. Steaks cooked to perfection and if not, no hesitation to take it back to the kitchen it it needs more grill time for your liking. Been dining at the Palm since it opened in Tampa, Fl. A must on your dining list when visiting.

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    This upscale restaurant is considered a steak house but don't ignore the seafood options! We had the Chilean Sea bass Nathan which was cooked to perfection. The lentil soup was perfectly seasoned and the three cheese potatoes were devine. The caricatures on the walls is part of its history but is my only suggestion for improvement in this dining establishment.

    Had a great experience with Grill OneSixteen. We made reservations for 9:30 and didn't arrive til a little passed 10 (went to the wrong location) the hostesses were not phased and still provided us with a table with no wait. Our server Ashley was friendly and knowledgable about the menu. She recommended the Meyers Old Fashion and I'm glad she did, it was great! We all had steaks and everyone was satisfied, the salads included with the dishes were unique to say the least and a bit underdressed but that could be personal preference. If you're looking for a Friday/Saturday night eat, I would definitely give Grill OneSixteen a try. A+

  • Valentines Day
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    While I understand the hectic schedule on Valentine's Day I would think the staff would try to keep the patrons respectable on a day this. I was there at 9-10 pm range on that day and I saw a slob in jeans and a tee shirt and guy wearing a baseball hat on backwards and a crowd that was not on par with the image that The Palm puts out. I ordered a nice filet that was supposed to be rare and was not cooked right, I mean how do you not cook a filet right at The Palm it looked like the heat on the grill was not hot enough and it was not good at all for 60.00. Service was fine, food times were nothing terrible for Valentine's Day, and the overall food a solid 7. But for the price The Palm needs to be better than that.

We had the wonderful Bone In Filet, with several sides for sharing. Everythign was amazing! The creamed spinach and goat cheese whipped potatoes were amazing.

Service RUSH only concerned was dinner they didn't care about us we complained to the Gen Mgr. This was not a good experience if I can give zero rating I would !!!! We were treated as steerage on the Titanic, We didn't matter, server didn't check on us, food was not equal sized portion, service was awful and very rushed, it was very very apparent they wanted us in and out so they could make their fortune on dinner. Poor/awful dining exp. I am looking forward to lunch again and better exp!

    The Palm crew outdid themselves again. As always, the food was spectacular. Steaks are always perfect, but the 837 Club Lobster Special was incredible. Try the Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with pine nuts and pancetta as a side dish. The wedge salad is the best that I've ever had. The Palm's consistency with food preparation and their great servide make this the best restaurant in town.

    The Palm Restaurant in Tampa is now closed permanently. Corporate management has to do what they have to do, but this was one of the most popular restaurants in Tampa. Seems like a desperate move to close this restaurant during what is probably nothing more than a flat economy....like anybody will drive to Orlando just to go to the Palm! The Manager, Mark, and all of the crew at the Palm deserved better than just 9 days notice of closing. The crew at this Palm was the most professional restaurant staff that I have ever seen. I wish them all the very best in the future. Mark, Tammy, Hugo, Alfredo, Troy, Nico, Cheryl, Louis, Darryl...I know that I've missed a lot of you..........best of luck in all future endeavors!!!!

    First dining experience at the Palm restaurant. Unfortunate news of its recent closure and departure from Tampa. However, I was very glad to be able to experience it before they closed this location and have to admit that my Ribeye was the best tasting steak I've ever had. My wife are I are very avid Ruth Chris fans, but we both felt the Palm had them beat on the taste of the steak. Although a bit pricey, I would hope that sometime in the future that they would return because this is great place to go for a special occasion or when you just want to splurge and have an excellent dining experience

    As usual my husband and I had an outstanding experience at The Palm. You cannot beat the steaks--always excellent and cooked to individual taste. The sides are wonderful ( some like the 3-cheese potatoes at gratin are truly decadent) and the carrot cake is the best in Tampa by far.
