    Not up to usual Palm standards - and they weren't that busy. Our water glasses were never refilled, we poured our own wine and my dirty bread plate was pushed onto the unshelled lobster I requested wrapped to take home. Ick!

    My wife and I have been to the Palm in Atlantic City on many occasions and have never been disappointed. From the moment that you enter the restaurant you get the feeling of a first rate experience. The entire staff is receptive to your every need and always at your beck and call. The food. I cannot say enough about the food. We started off with appetizers of Clams Casino and French Onion soup. Both were as good as you could possibly ask for. My wife had her first clam and the words out of her mouth were " oh my goodness, I cannot believe how good these taste". My French Onion Soup was the best I have ever tasted. The entree, Filet with a crab topping was to die for. This was not our first visit and certainly not our last.

    We go weekly to the Palm. It is amazing how they are always perfect. Scott the bartender makes you feel like family and also makes fantastic drinks. Anthony the manager is like a mother hen constantly checking to make sure every diner is happy with their meals. The place is exceptionally clean also. The only thing missing is tissues in the Men's room. We always recommend the Palm to our friends and they have never be disappointed.

    1st time at the Palm. It was our 29th wedding anniversary and wanted a nice meal. What we got was Outstanding from our Bacon wrapped scallops and Lobster Bisque. To my 24oz ribeye cooked to perfection & my wife's 15oz Lobster Tail. the complete dinner was great and the desert fantastic. Our waiter Anthony was great always there without bothering you every five minutes. All in all a great experience. Will be going again soon. Ask about the 827 club I joined good deal.

    Food was okay...my husband and daughter had steaks and said they were excellent. I had the shrimp special which was not so good...shrimp was tough. Service was excellent. Ambience...we were seated in bar area near a door that lead to street so it was busy and noisy. It is very expensive...little too much for the food.

    We come to the Palm every time we are in AC. This time was not great. We absolutely love the food here and were pretty disappointed with the food we had this visit. Starting with the tasteless calamari and ending with a filet mignon that didn't taste like filet should.

    The Palm is a really great place to go for a Steak,they are consistent the meat is excellent and the staff are very efficient//friendly with a good knowledge of their menu and happy to suggest what they think the customer in front of them may enjoy rather than just up selling because they have to. My server that night was Yasser who was just wonderful (Years of experience). Just one more thought, for anyone that hasn't been to this Palm they have to understand it is extremely busy and just goes off.But you would never know it as the staff really have there act together and deal with an extremely diverse clientele in a City that's tough to work in.

    The Palm's food is excellent, however very expensive. The waitress came over maybe once near the end of our meal and ask if everything was good. She was in such a hurry that we could hardly understand her because she was talking so fast to get other things done, she was running around going crazy and had no time to explain anything. Very disappointing because I really like the Palm. A little too late, don't you think? If it wasn't for the other workers walking around I would have never got a refill on my drink. Dessert was great, we ordered the warm doughnuts. Loved them. For dinner both of us ordered the filet mignon. The steak literally melts in your mouth.

    This is our second time to the restaurant. In both cases, the waiter and the busser, although very polite, lean right into the table without saying excuse me to grab our plates, bring bread, etc. Our food came out and it was not prepared as we had asked this last time, and overall, the restaurant is loud, so better for groups.

    My family has dined at various Palm restaurants over the past few decades (NY, Orlando, Philly, Las Vegas, etc.) We have never been disappointed, great food, fair prices, great service and great locations. Our 43rd Anniversary dinner was no exception. Everything and everyone was great. I hope that we can the next 43 anniversaries will be celebrated the same way. I would make reservations now but I do not know what city we will be visiting. For this anniversary, Atlantic City in July was a perfect choice. Thanks for everything

    My husband & I reserve our visits for special occasions & it never disappoints....the staff may not recognize our faces as we are not frequent regulars but it's nice to see a lot of the same faces of staff throughout the years. Not to mention their professionalism. The Palms has so many delicious starters but this last visit we just melted over the scallops wrapped in bacon w/balsamic reduction- as always they were perfectly cooked...white but not tough-extremely smooth & soft w/slight browning on top-bacon not hard/tough or overdone ...so many places cook scallops improperly - if you haven't tried them they are a must & it's a nice indication of the quality of the courses that will follow

    There were so many knats that were flying around landing in expensive bottle of wine that when adressed with management was disregarded. 5 STAR RESTAURANT THIS WAS NOT. We had to place napkins on top of our food and drinks to avoid eating knats. This was a very special anniversary and was not an experience we would like to do go through again nor reccomend to any one. We have dined here in the past but never had an experience like this. When the issue with the knats were addressed tis the season summer time was the answer. There was no trying to correct the problem. For a dinner that cost over 300 dollars which might not be much for some folks customer satisfaction no matter who they are should be first please contact us to discuss

    I took my wife there for her birthday (along with another couple). We each got the lobster for two for $99. The 3lb lobster was HUGE, grilled to perfection, and tasted great. The salads were good as well. The service was more than adequate, but there were some mistakes that I would not expect from a high-priced establishment: some brought out main courses to our table before we ordered; they brought out a wrong salad for one of us, and although they declawed the lobster for us, they confiscated our seafood forks, thus making the process not as easy to extra all of that succulent lobster meat. There was also a loud bachelor party next us, but can't blame the Palm for that. They did bring a complimentary birthday mouse cup for my wife.

    Last Sat. Night we decided to try the Palm in Atlantic City for a change of pace. We took advantage of the dinner special and thought it was a good value. The food was not spectacular but still very good and the portions were more than adequate. The resturant was full and fairly noisy due to a number of large groups. Nice place for a special occasion.

    The Palm, compared to all of the other high end steak restaurants in the area, ranks last. The dining area looks old and tired in dire need of a renovation. The noise level is more than energetic, it is extraordinary loud. Our server was pleasant but lacked the sophistication of an experienced server. The food was consistent with other Palm restaurants. Caesar salad, onion soup and New York strip were very good. The tuna was a disappointment. Expect more for your money.

    Nice meal, great service. The food came so quickly it seemed like they wanted us out of the restaurant quickly. It wasn't always like this when we went other times. I was missing the summer lobster special - what happened to this classic event? I ordered lamb chops. So disappointing. Very, very fatty, and also very salty. I would have sent them back but didn't want to make a fuss in front of our group. I've had this dish before and it was always wonderful. The drinks were good, but my husband's Grey Goose on the rocks was $18. He joked that he could tell you a cheaper place to buy your liquor!! The tuna was very good, and the salads were great.

When Bill an I went to Morton's in Florida, the table had sprinklers on it with a birthday card. The dessert was given to us free and they took our picture and put it in a paper frame.
