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.

    Service VERY, VERY SLOW!!! Took 20 minutes to order a cocktail. Waitress came by twice and acknowledged we were sitting there and both time said she would be back. Salad consisted of only lettuce and one small piece of cut tomato, not even close to being a salad at an upscale restaurant. Ordered steak Medium Well and came out Medium Rare, had to send back. Steak was very good after additional cooking. We indicated in our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, but nothing was mentioned by our server. Why ask during reservation process if the staff is not reading the comments. This is our third year in a row dining at Palm Court for our anniversary, and probably our last.

    This was our first time at the restaurant, I chose it because of their menu. The escargot was amazing, it was a blend of snails, mushrooms and spinach with the garlic and butter simply delicious. The entrees were a good size, well prepared and again delicious. Our service with Ava and the attendant were exceptional, they were friendly, nice, helpful but not intrusive. Definitely will be returning.

    As usual, our food was great, as was the wine we chose. However, for the first time in the several we have eaten here, the service was painfully slow. Our server seemed to disappear at times, did not ever pour any additional wine, had to be waved down for a diet coke, etc. Other than that, meal was fine.

    Service was good, food was average at best, the steak was better at the Golden Corral than it was at the Palm Court, i cant believe people actually recommended this place to me, i would definitely tell everyone i know to avoid it.

    We had a group of 8 young adults that were celebrating 2 birthdays. The service was great. The food was delicious, and they helped us to celebrate the birthdays with generous pieces of cheesecake! I would recommend Palm Court!

    The noise level was too high. A little more quiet elevator music would have sufficed. It was difficult trying to carry on a conversation with my guests. Also my husband never received his side dish to his rib order.

    Heard good things about this restaurant...so thought would try on Thanksgiving. Not the best time to try... overbooked, wait was 35 min after reservation time. Service was ok, never got 2 items asked for. Food was ok, nothing to rave about, overpriced for holiday!!! Will I return... probably not!!!

    Even though we had a reservation, we waited 45 minutes and there was no where to wait to be out of the way of wait staff, I had to ask 4 times for a bread plate, steak was not done as ordered and even though I specified we were celebrating a birthday, there was no mention of it.

    One can't fairly comment on a restaurant during a holiday meal service. Both the kitchen and wait staff were slammed with a holiday crowd. The service was excellent, the food, not so much. But, understandable under the circumstances.

    We waited two hours to be seated. They were seating very large groups and were not concerned about smaller parties. It took three hours from the time of our reservation to get our food. The attitude was totally indifferent about how long people were waiting. They overbook beyond what’s reasonable. I don’t recommend Palm Court unless you want your holiday ruined.

    We’ve been coming to Palm Court for years on Thanksgiving and it has always been great. However this time was a disappointment. Service was slow which we totally understand on a holiday, so we can deal with that. But the turkey serving was a bigger disappointment. It was like shredded pieces thrown on plate with these small chopped pieces of zucchini and watery cranberry sauce, small amount of mashed potatoes and was lukewarm. It has always been presented at Palm Court with these nice slices of turkey, medley of vegetables, better mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. For almost $30.00 probably would not order again or may not be back for Thanksgiving. My husband had the right idea to order halibut which he said was good but lukewarm too. All the rest of us had turkey and all agreed it was not like the usual Palm Court Thanksgiving dinner.

    Generally Palm Court has been an excellent experience - this time not so much. The Blue Point Oysters were great as was the Escargot - but the Clams Casino were awful. The Chicken Marsala and Calves Liver entrees were good - but the Short Ribs were not. Towards the end of the meal our server spilled a glass of ice water over the table and down onto my wife's lap - the server helped us change booths where we had dessert and my wife had another glass of wine. We thought the server would have comp'd us a dessert or a glass of wine, but no, not the case. Seriously disappointed...

    Our waitress was overwhelmed but she was amazing. The food was excellent! I was celebrating my 57th Birthday. I made reservations for 7 which included my mother, my two sisters, my daughter and her boyfriend and my husband. We all loved every minute of it. The creme-brule was the best ever. I will definitely be returning soon and recommending it to everyone I know.

    We asked our server what was in the crab meat mixture that the flounder is stuffed with before ordering it. She told us bread crumbs, egg & some peppers. Wen the dishes came out they had onions & chives added.. It tasted horrible. We scraped the crab meat stuffing out, there was very little fish left to eat. Ordered the twice baked potato, it had lemon mixed in it! It was awful! The meal was horrible tasting & we still had to pay for it! We asked our server for more water, it took quite some time to get it, we wound up asked another server for water. She brought it but was nonetheless too happy about pouring it for us! Why do you choose to be a server if you are not going to be happy? What a grump! I'm never coming back! It's such a shame because I have been going to Palm Court since the 80's!

    We had a party of 10 for dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. It’s been a few years since our last visit here. Our table was in a small room that was great. Our server was excellent. Our food was ready in a reasonable amount of time and everyone was happy. It definitely won’t be year till our next visit. Thanks for a very enjoyable evening.

    Our server was so nice! The food was very good. The place is looking very shabby and needs to be cleaned up. strings were coming off the carpet next to the tiles. All one would have to do is get down with a scissors and cut off those strings. Also the top off the booth areas needed to be dusted. Someone needs to take better care of it.

    Server was continually complaining about how busy she was. I asked for no mushrooms extra onion on my chicken dinner she rolled her eyes at me like I was asking something bad. When she brought the food she told me they removed the mushrooms but could not give me any onions. What’s up with that? She lit the fire under my husbands duck and told us how dangerous it was for her to have to light a fire without a tray. Very unprofessional very unpleasant evening

    Service was slow, food was good. For some reason the a/c turned on right before our food was served and when 3 of us had to put on our coats we requested the air be turned off and we’re informed it wasn’t on.
