Located near downtown Arlington Heights IL, and just minutes from the Metra station, Palm Court brings a timeless classic ambiance alongside a tantalizing menu that combines American cuisine with European influences.

Palm Court has received rave reviews since the restaurant opened its doors over 40 years ago for its elegant ambiance, friendly service, and relaxed atmosphere.

A highlight of the restaurant is the piano lounge, a comfortable place to unwind, relax, meet up with friends as you listen to the live piano music that swathes the dinner crowd Monday through Saturday.

Chef Michael has been creating alluring dishes for Palm Court since its inception in 1979, and our chef-driven menu includes timeless favorites like Tournedos of Filet Mignon, crisp Long Island Duckling, Veal Oscar and Provimi Calf’s liver. No dinner is complete with Palm Court’s own dessert, Brandy

The Bar offers a wide array of wines, cocktails, specialty Martinis and imported and domestic beers.

    I made a reservation for a number of people but unfortunately some cancelled the last minute due to unavoidable circumstances. When I told the receptionist about it she gave me a smirk in her face and told us to wait for 10 mins as the tables and chairs need to be rearranged. I did say I’m sorry but it’s beyond my control if my guest cannot make it. She never showed up and at least go back to me to tell me that arrangement is in progress. There is also no chairs to sit while waiting to be seated and my 93 year old mother has to wait standing using her cane for support and nobody even offered chair even just for her to sit while waiting.Our server was excellent but the receptionist needs to be more pleasant and accomodating to customers.

    We have been going to the Palm Court, for over 25 years. It is just as fabulous back then as it is today. We love the music we love the piano eating in the bar is fabulous eating in the restaurant area is fabulous. The food is always spectacular. The service is always spectacular. It’s a great value and it reminds me of a supper club because you can actually go to a restaurant get super salad with your meal.

    This is a classic 'supper club' with great food, service, and ambiance. I have been going here for 40 years and even when it changed owners, they maintained the product in all ways. Wonderful bartender, who knows his drinks. When I convinced my 30-something to try it, even after she insisted there were better restaurants downtown Chicago, she was pleasantly surprised. She then brought her new husband back. Her sister is eager now to try it after her sister's blessing. It's not trendy, but classic. Sometimes we 'seniors' know a thing or two about good food.

    After some forty years, we had our first unpleasant experience at Palm court. The Bluepoint oysters, which were large in the past, were tiny. The food was decent; however, everything was lukewarm. The server was unpleasant even to the point of telling me the bordelaise sauce was the same as the last forty years. It wasn’t so in my experience. PC has always been a go to spot, but not this time. We may try again, but never with that server.

    What a great dining experience. Friendly employees, great selections, yummy food. My husband had the prime rib and I had the poached champagne salmon. Both were excellent. Definitely will be adding this one to our favorite restaurants.

    Ordered a house salad with my entree Looked like it had been made for two days! Not fresh! Tomato quarter was not ripe, and it had one slice of cucumber. Was told it was mixed greens & the majority was iceberg lettuce. Very disappointing. I sent it back. Then I ordered a spinach salad (which was an upgrade & paid $7). This salad was not fresh either. Looked like they pre make salads earlier in the day & just pull out as people order. Both were haphazardly made. Not a good presentation of food. Ordered the poached salmon entree which was delicious. I requested double vegetables instead of a potato or rice. My serving of the green beans were exactly the same as my husband but he had chosen the rice option. The wait staff told me it was fine to ask for double vegetables. I’ve dined at Palm Court for several years and was always pleased with wait staff, host or hostesses and food. I have to admit this past Saturday would not necessarily bring be back to dine at Palm Court. Another annoyance was we were seated where servers brought out trays on a wheeled food cart. At least 3 or 4 times the covers crashed on the floor close to our table. We know accidents can happen, but within a two hour span I would think the servers might need a little reminder to take their time.

    We have been going to Palm Court for about 40 years, special occasions. We had not been in awhile, but were not disappointed. The food was very good. They had done some renovating and it looks so nice. Our server was excellent. Apparently, there was no help to bus last night, but she and others jumped in a did a great job with a smile. We will continue to frequent Palm Court.

    We have been to Palm Court many times and always had a wonderful meal. This time, my wife ordered a side of spinach and rec'd some Godawful frozen pseudo-spinach. If you can't get spinach right now, we should have been told. Other than that, meal was fine.

    The food that came correct was very good. One of our dishes had to be made 3 times, and it still wasn't right. Atmosphere was nice, but certain things need to be updated. Loved the smell of the candles they had burning. Manager was very nice and helped with our issue. Waitress wasn't very friendly or attentive. Waitress wasn't very accommodating. Overall, I would give another try.

    Great food but service requires improvements/training. The areas of service are not allocated between the servers (this is how it looked like). Our server did not know she was supposed to serve our table. We had to wait some time till our order was taken. When we finished meals, it took a while to remove empty plates, we had empty glasses but server did not even ask us if we want a refill or something else. We asked ourselves. When we got second round of drinks, server did not bring a straw. We had to ask ourselves. We were under impression that server is not attentive at all: what to remove, what to offer, etc. the restaurant is not busy (at least when we were there that evening) and this is quite strange how servers cannot visit their tables on time and provide the service their clients deserve. But food was amazing. Everything what we ordered was tasty and freshly cooked.

    Went to Palm court to celebrate, son’s birthday. Though we had a rough start with one of the waiters there who was very rude to me and my kids, we brought it up to the managers George and Lisa ( sorry if I got your names wrong ) they both were extremely courteous and kind, they understood and made it up to us, got us seated in a different section of the restaurant and the service was much better. Apart from the rough start, I must say the food was amazing, the steaks were cooked perfectly and so were the hamburgers cooked well, my family was glad we stayed. Especially my son, as the staff offered him a slice of key lime pie and made his day. Special shout out to the managers, if not for them we would have been out of the restaurant. Thank you Lisa and George, sure we will come back again, you guys are doing a good job. God bless you guys!

    Service was VERY slow. Took almost half an hour to get the first round of drinks. Missing silverware and plates. We fully realize that labor shortages situation. They should not fill the all the tables if they don’t have enough staff. Music was way too loud and it was hard to converse with my family.
