The food was good, not outstanding. A little overpriced for my taste. Service was a little slow. We had to wait 15 min for the check even though we told the server we were on a hurry.

Loved this restaurant! Went with a friend while visiting NYC, we typically try to pick one "special" place each year and this was it. From the moment you walk in, you have a great feeling about the cozy and charming place. We started with excellent cocktails made in accordance to our request. The food was absolutely delicious, we had the halibut and a beet salad and both were so good, we bought a gift certificate for a friend because we thought he'd like it so much. Dessert was a flourless chocolate cake - many times they are rich and cloying, this was certainly rich but subdued and I loved the texture (I have made many flourless chocolate cakes in my day so I know!) The only downside was that both parties around us were served before us. We weren't in a hurry and the service was very good, our waiter was very attentive and did keep us informed that the food was coming. I don't know if they were backed up in the kitchen or what the issue was. But I would go back here in a heartbeat and would recommend it highly!

Went for brunch and had the crocquettes and foccaccia prosciutto, along with a couple bellinis. Great quality food for a casual meal, service that is attentive without being overbearing, and cozy ambience. Didn't get a chance to check out the garden in the back but will definitely come back to see that and try their pasta, which others ordered and looked delicious!

We had an amazing anniversary dinner here, and it was even better than expected... prettier, delicious...er, just wonderful. The presentation of the zuppe de pesce was incredible - looked like a giant chicken pot pie, which turned out to be a paper thin bread over the seafood dish that tasted great along with the seafood.
Worth the prices to feel like you're in Italy to the point that NYC is a shock when you finally leave.
Only reason it's not all 5 stars (even though I was tempted to give all 5 stars) was bc I asked twice to ensure our waiter would speak Italian, which my wife enjoys doing. Asked online and again 2x when we arrived, to help make it a perfect experience. Our waiter then came over and spoke English, which kind of took away from how perfect every moment was. When I went to ask the hostess, she said it was bc we chose a table in an area where the waiter didn't speak Italian.
It's surely a first world problem, but it was a disappointment to point out that there was no way I could have known that, and nobody mentioned it, and now it's going to be odd to have a different waiter come over and start speaking Italian. Calling attention to the whole thing, which should've just been a bonus.
And with that, the waitress who took over was delightful and we'd ask for her again the next time we're back.
With a glass of wine each, one appetizer and two entrees it was about $150 with tip, which seemed very reasonable for such a special experience right in the middle of NYC.
It's making me look forward to traveling to Italy for a tour of outstanding restaurants.
Thank you, Palma, despite my one gripe, we really had a terrific time and look fwd to returning.

Charming rustic atmosphere under skylight. The food, especially the pastas are terrific. Branzino and veal chop were also great. Service was very good.

Only complaints are: it’s kind of expensive, and the chairs are uncomfortable.

Overall excellent. Food was good enough, especially fettucini funghi. The other food, lobster soup and risotto balls were just fine. The best thing about the restaurant was a mood and interior. Garden-like interior was very eye-pleasing.

The restaurant was packed and we ended up with a table in the bar area but would have preferred the dining room with all the spring blooms! The noise level was high. We were served appetizers shortly after they took our order.However, we had to wait nearly an hour for our main course.

Excellent time down in Greenwich Village for dinner recently. We were visiting so were not sure where we wanted to go, but had Italian in mind. Researched Italian spots near Bleeker Street and Palma displayed. Reviewed a few notes, etc., and decided to book a reservation... and glad we did.

Enjoyed our dinner and our cocktail/wine selections hit the spot... as did the food and dessert!

Charming atmosphere and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Would certainly return the next time we are in NYC.

Palma never disappoints. My favorite village restaurant. Food is consistently good. Servers are pleasant and professional allowing enough time between courses to enjoy dining without feeling rushed. Can get a little loud on Saturday night but everything else makes it well worth it. Should also mention that I had a Birthday dinner party there a few years ago in the private room upstairs and it was wonderful. Service, food, & atmosphere was perfect!
