    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.

    Dined on 6/21/2014
    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.

    Paul Sandler and his PALM crew always make it an outstanding dining experience . Sue , our server , anticipates our every need . My wife and I split the 4 lb lobster special . Each person gets a starter and we split one large side with dinner; all for $99 . It was the best lobster we ever had . Absolutely succulent ; broiled to perfection . Extra crisp hash browns were delicious and prepared exactly as we ordered it . We return regularly .

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!

    During our recent weekend vacation in Atlantic City, my wife and I made an advance dinner reservation at The Palm and requested our favorite server, Chrissy. To start off, Chrissy recommended a bottle of Chardonnay which turned out to be the best Chardonnay that we have ever tasted. Then we ordered the Summer Lobster Special, and it was outstanding. We give an A+++ to both Chrissy and the Palm chef for a fabulous dinner - and we will be back soon.

    The food was very good - but pricey... Lobster bisque is my favorite... But so rich that next time I may just choose that and an appetizer...the only complaint is that the noise level was what I would describe as rowdy and distracting...not the right place for a romantic evening....I had to yell to my date to be heard...your wait staff was wonderful.

    SvenHarry
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    Visited Palm Atlantic City 6/7. My wife and I both love lobster, so we ordered the Summer lobster special. Some people worry lobsters that size can be tough. Well, we were not disappointed. After the caesar salad appetizer (one of the better caesars I have had), we were served what turned out to be a moist and delicious and tender and perfectly broiled 5 lb lobster - I could not resist adding a pound for only $15. And its all cracked and shelled for you at the table. We ordered creamed spinach as our side and added an additional side, hash browns to round it all out. Again, could't resist. Or finish! What an extraordinary meal. And if you are lucky enough to get Gabe as your waiter, you are all set for an excellent evening at Palm A.C.

    We enjoy The Palm in Philly, AC and in other cities when I travel for business, but the AC location is uniquely noisy - even when the restaurant isn't full - so much so that it distracts from table conversations and reduces the enjoyment of what would otherwise be a great experience! It's hard to fix acoustics, but I wonder if tehre isn't something that could be done to reduce the noise level.

    I went to The Palm in Atlantic City for my friends bachelor party this weekend. They were able to handle my party of 8 no problem. Our server Jason was very knowledgeable about the menu and knew just how much of each appetizer we needed to order for everyone to share. The food was spectacular and everyone's steak was cooked perfectly.

    Normally we eat at the one in NYC in Tribeca, so I'm slightly biased in this review. I will admit that our server was great but the food was just okay. We ordered similar items that we normally get in NYC and something was just off here. For example we got the string beans as a side that come with pine nuts, pancetta and red pepper flakes. The strings beans had absolutely no flavor and the pine nuts just tasted like the oil they were cooked in. Allow me to say that there isn't anything wrong with this location, perhaps my palate is accustomed to the NY location. I still think you would have a great dinning experience. Also the bartenders were excellent almost to where we would have eaten there instead of a table.

    I live in north jersey. There a a few palm terraces in Bergen county. I thought this May have been related so I went. I love the palms in north jersey. This is not at that standard. While they tried hard they didn't pay enough attention to detail for my dollar. Expensive and living on a reputation of another fare?
