    We went to Palma to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The team were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu items - the red wine that was recommended to us based on our articulated preferences was spot on! We really enjoyed the gnocchi special that night, the carciofi, and the tiramisu. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!

    The place is beautiful— wonderful ambiance in the garden. The service was very good. The fish was delicious but the pasta special was very undercooked— less cooked than al dente. The wines were very expensive; not enough moderate priced choices. Many places mark it up 3 times but should have some wine choices under $100.

    Dining in the West Village is always fun. Dining in Palma's secluded backyard garden is very special. It's an oasis from outside, curbside dining, private, intimate, unique. The garden ambiance, flowered walls, and open sky make for a leisurely dining experience . The Italian cuisine is well prepared and very good. The service is attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. I've dined here several times over the yeats, and will continue to dine here. I highly recommend it.

    Love love love Palma! It was raining cats and dogs when we were here this time, and the host happily rearranged the outdoor seating to ensure both members of our party were shielded from the rain. The ambiance in the outside dining area was impeccable, and we enjoyed the gluten free pasta and desserts as always! Thanks Palma!

    Reservation system allowed to make a reservation when restaurant was not even open. Called the restaurant numerous times, left several messages via voice message, Facebook and on their website. No one ever returned call or called to say they were not open. Extremely unprofessional and unacceptable. Very sad about the whole situation as we were planning out day in the City around our eating here. I guess they dont care

    Palma was just marvelous. We celebrated my wife’s and daughter’s birthday here and it was absolutely worth it. The restaurant vibe is quaint yet the food is upscale without outrageous prices. Palma and her husband were wonderful folks and very pleasant when we talked to them. The food was flavorful and savory. We are back in NYC in 2 weeks and we plan on returning here.

    This was my 2nd time at Palma. The first time they hit it out of the ballpark. The food was delicious and the decor , glorious. The ambiance that they have created makes you feel as though you've been transported someone's country home in Italy. Yesterday we went for brunch, and only had limited options on the menu. The dish I ordered, the frittata, was very good. My friend ordered the calamari which was tough and tasteless. Additionally, we were disappointed with the service. We were seated at the table next to the door, which numerous waitpersons walked by many times, and not one stopped to greet us or offer us water for 15 minutes. We were completely ignored. After lunch, we ordered cappuccinos, the highlight of the meal, but the waitperson tried placing it on the crowded table which had no room for cups/saucer. I had to ask him to remove the dishes so we could enjoy our coffee. There was a private event in the back of the restaurant, which could have been the reason for the subpar service... I'm sad to say that I'm not sure I will go back.

    This place is perfect for date night. The portions are average size. To start they bring focaccia bread- delicious! We shared the crispy artichokes, very good, unlike any other artichoke I’ve ever had. We shared the raviolis and the paparadelle with meat sauce. Both were very good, pasta was Al dente. We shared one entree which was the seared tuna also very good. Everything was fresh. I saved room for dessert, we decided to try something we can’t get anywhere else. That brought us to the espresso gelato and then they pour hot espresso over it, we enjoyed it. The cocktails were very good too. The ambiance is a 10! Beautiful fresh flowers throughout the restaurant, pretty lighting. The only issue we had was a very loud obnoxious drunk woman came in with 3 friends and sat at the bar which was next to our table and she was extremely loud. I know the restaurant can’t help this. Thank goodness they didn’t stay long. We would love to go back. It’s pricey, nice for special occasion or date night.

    I wanted to be seated in the covered patio indoors and specifically inquired about it before making the reservation but when we got there we got a table indoors. The reservation system is a bit confusing and doesn't differentiate between indoors and patio/garden, I would have called had I known that

    The outdoor seating was very comfortable (heat lamps and semi protected) even with a chill in the air. The street was closed off so no traffic whizzing by! The food and service were great - very accommodating. We enjoyed everything from the calamari to the orange wine to the Milanese to the profiteroles (special)! Thank you!

    I booked Palma through the open table app I had numerous recommendations for this place. I booked the reservation 2 days in advance for an 8:30pm reservation on a Thursday evening. I received a text at 8:25pm advising the table was ready. I arrived at 8:28pm and was told the prior reservation was finishing up and we could be seated soon. 30 minutes later and 4 further enquiries as to when our table is ready we were finally seated. The excuse was that the prior party had paid but remained seated and where finishing up. We were offered no consolation (not that we required or asked for it). We were provided with an apology but the manager. Some one along the chain wasn’t performing their role in the restaurant and it tarnished the experience for us. I was promised a magical evening and experienced a lacklustre performance - similar to a bad date.
