    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.

    This restaurant was very nice, I took my husband there for his birthday. The food was good and came out hot with good portions. The service was even better! It's definitely a very pricey restaurant so not one we'd visit again unless it's for a special occasion.

    I enjoyed the meal, the service was excellent. I feel you should do more to make special celebrations more meaningful. 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. All our special events will be at Morton's in the future

    Back to Palm A.C. a second time in the last mo.(dined at the orig. 2nd Ave loc. '837' in btwn). Greeted well and given nice table in main dining area. Waiter Jason was outstanding. Practically predicted our tastes and ordered the meal for us, he was so helpful and accommodating. The escargot in mushroom cap appetizer special was outstanding, as was the caesar salad (as usual). Followed by a perfect broiled 4 lb. lobster, delicious fresh sautéed spinach in garlic and oil, and a segue from the usual home fries - an order of the french fries. What a discovery. The french fries were hand-cut, perfectly cooked brown beauties, dusted in parmesan and parsley and salt (I think). Could not stop eating them. May be best f.f. ever. No easy feat.

    I'm a member of the 837 Club which gives special discounts on bottles of wine each month. My favorite wine was the discounted white of the month, but when I ordered it the waiter informed me that I'd been given last month's list by mistake. I didn't want to pay the extra $20 regular price because it was the restaurant's mistake. I asked to speak to the manager and an assistant manager came over and said there was nothing he could do as the computer wouldn't allow the discounted price to be entered. As the GM, Paul Sandler was making his rounds and asked how things were, I said fine except for the wine incident. He immediately sent over the other bottle at the discounted price. Thanks Paul for saving the evening and my faith in the Palm!

    Found crowd to be a little old for me even. Many birthday party and anniversary celebrations. Food was good. A little disappointed in flavor of steak. Appetizers and sides were delicious. I was a little upset as I had 9 reservation and when table was ready put in in table in bar. Complained and got table in dining room (there were plenty-why 900 PM reservation and could not get earlier and why put me in bar)

    We had my bachelor party dinner this past weekend and the food was amazing. The filet mignon was very tender and the lobster was the best I've ever had. The dessert portions were very large, but equally delicious. I would definitely recommend this place for the food. The service was great all night, but we did have a waitor complain about the tip. That part left a sour taste in our mouth, but don't let that deter you. The food is top quality.

    My wife and I returned to the Palm for our anniversary, and we were not disappointed. They make the best bacon wrapped scallops, scallop cooked perfectly, bacon crisp. You also can't go wrong with any of the salads. I don't remember the name, but it was a chopped salad with greens, shrimp, avocado,egg, green beans, and more of that crispy bacon. Share it, you will need to save room for dinner! Steak of course- cant go wrong. We had bone in ribeye and the ny strip, both cooked as requested, with peppercorn brandy sauce and mashed potatoes on the side- yum! It's not cheap here, but I think a step above some of the other big name steak houses.

    We have always loved the Palm for their good wine and delicious entrees. However, the red wine selection of wine by the glass was very disappointing on this trip. We also wanted surf and turf and were told that they ran out of lobster tails. I don't think we will be returning.

    Can't speak on dining room. Only saw reception area & sat at booth in bar room. Bar area set up still makes for romantic meal. Fills up tho, can get a little noisy. Go 5-5:30. Dark heavy wood gives 'old' atmosphere. Feels like you should be having a scotch & cigar. Staff- professional/classy (even their uniforms) particularly our waiter who seemed to have had experience for many years working in high class places, but not stuffy, pleasant/personable, a few jokes, a lot of smiles, accommodating, repeated specials menu a few times without making us feel like we we're being pains. On expensive side, but portions are large & food is great, along with the ambiance it's worth it for a special meal. Online menu is incorrect, needs to be updated.

When we arrived, our reservation was ready and we were able to be seated exactly where we had requested. Great food and excellent service! The Palm is one of our favorite and special restaurants, and one in-which we have never been disappointed. We would highly recommend the Palm to anyone and everyone!

    my wife and I gave dinner another try after about a year. Last year the service was over the top but the food was quest fair. This year the food remains just fair, but so was the service. It's a fun place to go, busy and energetic; but the staff seemed confused about who was to do which service. The steak was good but not for the price; there veal specialty dish had no taste and little veal. They should have called it a mushroom dish with veal accents. There are better steak houses in the area. I doubt we'll go back again, unless you're paying!
