A word from The Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel
Geoffrey Zakarian has re-launched the iconic Palm Court at The Plaza hotel with a complete renovation helmed by Master Architect Thierry Despont. Zakarian showcases classic American menus from morning to evening, and while staying true to its original design intent, Despont has brought the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, with garden elements such as caning, large potted plants, four soaring palm trees and an oval trellised bar anchoring the room, creating an ambience that feels warm, private and glamorous. Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by infamous mixologist Brian Van Flandern. Afternoon Tea truly shines as well with custom tableware, a tea list with worldly depth, and of course, a bit of Eloise too. This elegant room marked with its stained glass dome and impressive height adds a touch of old New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality.

    Our breakfast at the Palm Court was one of the best ever. In fact their eggs Benedict has now become my bench mark for any other restaurant. They also have a wonderful tea selection those of us that do not enjoy coffee.

    I always wanted to have my son have a breakfast with me at Plaza. The service was good, the restaurant itself is beautiful. We had an early breakfast, so there were not so many people. My son's pancakes from Eloise menu were absolutely great. However, my eggs Benedict were brought out cold. The ham was chewy and also cold. The potatoes were over fried and hard as rocks. Overall it was a good experience, but it was not worth $60 check.

    It was the opening day and everything seemed to run very smoothly. We enjoyed ourselves very much. A little on the high side for price but it was on the bucket list of a member of our party. My only suggestion, other than price, would be to offer a selection for diabetics. We had tea at the Empress Hotel on Victoria Island and they asked about specific dietary restrictions and were very accommodating. You asked about special needs - but did nothing to meet that need.

    It's been a dream of mine to visit the Palm Court after seeing it in so many old movies. On this, my first visit to New York, I was thrilled to learn the Palm Court was open for breakfast and I was able to snag a reservation for breakfast. The food was fabulous -- Eggs Benedict like none I've ever eaten before -- a beautiful setting that I will remember for many months to come. I highly recommend it even tho it was quite pricey. It's a wonderful special occasion meal out.

    We anxiously awaited our trip to NYC which included breakfast in the newly renovated Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel, and were not disappointed. Details are absolutely beautiful and exceeded website description. We highly recommend making reservations for this lovely restaurant.

    Made reservations through Open Table...very convenient. Upon arrival, greeting by the host was extremely courteous and sincere. Initial service (water, coffee, juice) was done efficiently and pleasantly. Waiter was courteous and very pleasant. Food came in a timely manner (although it wasn't crowded). Follow-up inquiries at our table were just right (not too frequent). Overall, a good dining experience. Although the overall breakfast was pricey, the ambiance and service was nice and I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a classy dining experience.

    This is an elegant, pricey spot in a beautiful hotel. Presentation is wonderful with not your usual fare however, be aware that this is an expensive meal!
