I come here fairly often but on my last visit the service was off. Our main course arrived very late: almost 50 mins after we had placed the order. And three times we were asked whether we were ready for our main. All three times we said, yes we have been waiting for a while. No apology was offered. Will come back hopefully to receive better service.

We loved Palma! Atmosphere was beautiful, we sat under the tent on the patio which was decorated with ivy walls and pretty lights. Such a nice vibe and we were the only ones out there when we were seated. Other parties were seated while we were eating but I always felt totally safe as the were distanced, there were plastic barriers up around tables, and everyone was greeted with hand sanitizer upon arriving. The food was amazing and the la vie en rose cocktail was our fave. will definitely be bacK!

I went to Palma for my birthday with a couple of friends.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere was charming! They did a good job with outdoor dining and social distance. There are heaters but I would encourage you to dress warmly.
The manager Marco was wonderful and the food was superb. The ambiance lives up to the legend of NYC.

Had a fantastic Sunday dinner out on the back patio. Nice and toasty with a heater. Service was very pleasant. Dinner was very good. Had the zuppa di pesce and artichokes for appetizers. They accommodated kids with spaghetti, which wasn’t on the menu. Very pretty setting and will definitely return.

It would have been nice to enjoy appetizers with our Prosecco but we hadto wait and order all at once because that was not permitted

Having been to Palma roughly 100x in the last few years, I think that warrants all reason for my review. Food is beyond amazing and most importantly, consistent. The quality is always perfect. Drinks are incredible and the staff really takes time to take care of your needs. We love the entire team at Palma especially Chloerose. I have a hard time recommend any other restaurant as Palma is my home away from home.

Great food. Solid & attentive service. Will absolutely not return.

Restaurant charges the (city authorized) 10% Covid recovery fee via fine print at the bottom of page 2 of the 4 page menu. My fault for not noticing at the beginning of the meal since I figured it was just the obligatory fine print regarding undercooked meat, nut allergies, etc.

But just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should do something. Hidden fees drive away customers. Everyone on planet Earth hates when unscrupulous phone companies, cable companies, airlines, etc. charge extra fees at the conclusion of a transaction that end up making the final price of the product/service higher than the advertised price. So why would this be a good practice for a restaurant to adapt?

If the costs of your business have increased 10%, then raise your prices 10%. That’s business. Don’t sneakily slip in a fee at the end. Next time I want to be surprised by unanticipated fees, I’ll save myself the trip and just buy second hand Weezer concert tickets on Ticketmaster.

Excellent experience. It was raining but the Palma team handled it quickly by setting up a large tent in the rose garden with the roof retracted for air circulation. Great covid-friendly dining option.

The food is delicious, five star but the service is worst. My sister visited me for other state and I booked the table for my sister birthday, we haven't seen each other for years and I'm really looking forward for this dinner. We arrived 25 mins earlier than our reservation, they have a back yard and also table outside. The host didn't ask me where we would like to sit and seated us outside. Then I saw there were empty tables at the back yard, I asked politely if we can change to back yard. Then she told me, if we seat down then can not switch table due to COVID policy, I asked but I saw empty tables on the back yard, she said it is for reservation coming in and there was no table when we arrived. So the empty tables I saw were not exist? Excuse me, I made reservation as well and arrived 25 mins earlier. She even told me I could not pick back yard or side with cold attitude. Okay, if it is policy, I am okay. But she asked every groups after us if they want to seat back yard or outside, is this double standard or because we wear causal than other groups. The waiter never paid attention on our table, didn’t ask if we want water once or how is the food. I never have such bad dine in experience ever, I will recommend take out but not dine in.

There is no better outdoor dining set up or experience than Palma. The explosion of flowers both on their sidewalk dining and in their back garden is so dreamy and romantic. On a quiet street and fully built to be protected from the street either way, it’s just so picture perfect and charming, not to mention delicious! Literally best caprese salad I’ve ever had! The olive oil alone was to die for! Can’t say enough good things about this place. take any one special here, they will be impressed and fall in love :)
