This is Trident Tech's culinary school restaurant. The service is superb. The food is very good, but can be a little spotty. Their menus vary from week to week, so be sure to see what their menu will be before making reservations. Expect to pay less than half what you would pay for a comparable meal downtown.
Really enjoyed our lunch at 181 Palmer. Very accommodating as one of the party is allergic to seafood. Originally scheduled because of the north German menu, but was changed to Asian due to Irma.
Talk about value for your money, you can't do better than having lunch at Palmer. The food was well prepared, and the server we had was just fabulous.
The food was delicious. The service wa excellent. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient.
Love everything about the lunches at 181 Palmer: the food, presentation, and the student staff. Incredible bargain!
I invited 3 of my friends to a "mystery lunch". Over the course of several months I gave them very vague clues about where we were going. When the mystery was revealed as we drove into the parking lot, everyone was so excited! They had all wanted to go there, but never had. We had such fun describing our food to each other and sharing bites with each other. Now I want to go back with my husband! The food was simply delicious and the whole experience was just great. These students do an excellent job.
This is an amazing value dining opportunity - $15 for 3 courses, no tipping and no tax! I realize it is a culinary school and having had lunch here a few times before, I have to say I was never disappointed until this time. Charcuiterie plate which I always get, used to be fabulous but now it is just mediocre. Very small with limited choices. Also it was served on a wooden plate which did not showcase the food but rather camoflaged it. The Lobster Ravioli entree was delicious and the presentation was outstanding but my dessert (Salted Carmel Chocolate Tart) was hard and tough to eat. Although I needed a knife to cut through the hard pastry the presentation was pretty to look at. Service, as always was excellent.
Go back to the original Charcuiterie plate from a year ago and maybe raise the price from $15 - $18!
We have been there before, always a pleasant lunch, good food.
The waitress had the greatest personality. Food and service was excellent.
Service was impeccable. The Chef's food presentation added a certain appeal to the meal. Each meal course was enjoyable.
