    We had a wonderful time and dinner for Mother's Day. I had the filet and lobster combination which was superb and Robert had the filet also an excellent choice. We split a couple sides, ordered from wine and shared a dessert of various sorbets. Our waiter was attentive to our needs and always makes us feel special.

    Ordered med, came rare. Sent back, came charred/well done. Manager was rude and ultimately, I didn't get dinner. I'll never repeat that mistake. Mistakes happen, but that was unacceptable. So rude - don't even want to get into anymore.

    We had a really amazing experience with Bryant our waiter! He taught us the difference between the west coast and east coast Gigi salad. The west coast version is more like a cobb salad. The steaks were perfect. The Macaroni and cheese was wonderful and creamy. The wine list was very nice and they had in stock each of the wines we asked about. The bread plate was kept full and the water glasses were full. We really had a wonderful experience.

    Bar Tenders as always superb. Good Drinks. Food very good. However, prices seem to constantly creep up. Quite expensive. Will not be frequenting as much as in the past due to the 837 Club raising points for rewards and raising minimums to receive Birthday Certificate.

    We've enjoyed dining at the Palm for years. This was the first time we brought a child. The table size and location were good; the high chair was placed with plenty of room. However, she had no place setting, nor was it offered - no napkin, plate, or silverware. Then, when the very nice gentleman came with water, he asked if he could give our 3 year old granddaughter a styrofoam cup with a straw; and called her Princess, which she loved. We ordered the steamed green beans minus the red pepper flakes, as our Granddaughter loves veggies. She took the first bite and lit up bright red - oops, it had red pepper in it. A manager stopped by and quickly remedied the situation. The server was great and knows how to engage young children.

    Nice restaurant and good service. An expensive night out but that was expected due to location in a tourist hotel and the #1 tourist destination in America. Steaks were excellent and side dishes very good as well. Large portions for side items are ample for 2 or 3 to share. Plan on spending $60-$80 per person and you won't be disappointed.

    Always had a great steak at The Orlando Palm but on this visit, the steaks were outstanding. Very flavorful and tender and cooked perfectly. Even the sides seemed to be better than ever. It wasn't a special occasion visit, we were just in the area and decided to drop in. maybe that's the secret but whatever, a meal of this quality will ensure that you will always want to come back. Of course, the service is always top of the line too at the table and at the bar.

    My wife and I had an excellent time and dinner at the Palms Restaurant. We went there to warm up befoe the Moody Blues concert this past weekend. Our server Joe was great! He was very attentive and made some excellent recommendations. The manager stopped by twice to see how everything was with our meal and our overall enjoyment of their establishment. Service is definitely top priority at the Palms. The wine list at the Palms is also very good and they even had one of our hard to find favorites - Markham Merlot. The menu has something for everyone, from steaks to seafood to intalian favorites. The Palms atmosphere is lively not stuffy, but it is also refined. Great place to take the family or gang visiting Universal or business meal.

    The server were not properly trained or attentive. Dinner for 8 took over 2.5 hours and the restaurant was not packed. Food was very good and presented very well. If we had a decent server, I would recommend this restaurant for most occasions especially large parties. Fun atmosphere but ask for the private dining room.

    Really splurged at the Palm on this trip. The whole lobster for the table to share was good, though I felt the tail was small for the size of the lobster. The filet and Gigi salad, very good and the sea bass very nice too though I wish they had a more interesting sauce to go with it than just a heavy lemon butter. Brussels sprouts were a little burnt and dried out and didn't sell our friend on the idea that Brussels sprouts can be good. Unfortunately we didn't get dessert as my husband always loves the carrot cake here. Service was good though could have used the water glasses filled a little more regularly.

    This is the 4th time we've been to this Palm location. The experience the first 3 times was great. This last time it was not good. For starters, the noise level was overwhelmingly loud to the point that we could barely hear each other yelling across the table. Two of my kids had wanted a primeburger which they had made no problem the last 3 times, including less than 1 month ago. This time, the waitstaff said it had been removed from the menu. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch or an early dinner when it is not at its peak for being crowded and would not recommend this restaurant if you have kids.

    We were there very early (6:15pm) on a Sunday night with a party of 7 (3 kids) and it wasn't incredibly full when we arrived, but it took a full hour after being seated before we had appetizers. Our waitress was friendly (and extremely chatty) at first but then she disappeared for a long period of time before coming to even take an appetizer order.

    We tend to order much of the same thing everytime we come...not because we don't like to try new things, rather because we love to get what we love! The food, wine, even dessert are delicious!! Service was also very good. The room was a little tight because extra tables had been brought in for Valentine's weekend. I wasn't wild about that since my husband and I could not sit next to each other like we prefer. Still, it was another nice dinner at The Palm.
