The food was good, but not excellent. Atmosphere was great, and it was very busy. However, 1 of our starters did not arrive for 15-20 minutes after the others. The attitude of the staff in resolving this was unacceptable. To say ‘it’s coming soon’ three times, is just not good enough. When it arrived, finally, the rest of us had eaten. We got barely an apology, but a serious and sulky strop from the waiter, who felt that complaining about it was wrong of me.
Am sad to say I will not be going back, because of the attitude of some of the staff, and because, really, it was not quite exceptional enough for the price. Which is a pity, as we had a fantastic time there on Christmas Day three years ago.

Everything is always perfect at Palma. But the courtyard is extremely loud of the roof is closed. The noise level makes it hard to talk.

Pasta entrees were fantastic! Had hoped the calamari appetizer would have been served with some sort of sauce. Overall, ambience and setting and service were phenomenal.

Charming cozy space, covered garden lovely
also, even on a dark rainy day.
Fresh authentic ( and delicious) Italian food and a very adequate wine list.
Staff warm and friendly. Great romantic spot but equally appropriate for larger parties. Highly recommend.

Although we made reservations 2 weeks in advance we were not seated in the restaurant but
in the annex that was probably intended for drinks - not impressed - at all.

The restaurant is very quaint and you feel like you are in small place in Italy. The tables are a little too close together and the one we sat in was right next to another room and it was very busy with wait staff and people walking very close to us.
The food was delicious. We had to wait a bit for our water to be filled but for the most part is was a very good meal.

The food is excellent at Palma, the service is friendly but a bit scattered, there was an event taking place at the restaurant after our meal and the service staff was very focused on setting that up and less on the prompt service, but they made up for it in sweetness. The ambiance is very pretty. It is noise but not terribly so.

My wife and I ate at Palma a few years ago and it was truly memorable.
We were excited to get a reservation on this trip to NY.
The restaurant was still beautiful, romantic etc. but the food was deeply disappointing compared to our previous dinner.
The artichoke starter was tough and stringy.
The linguine/mushroom main was. absolutely undistinguished and bland.
A disappointing meal but a lovely place and staff.

We have been to Palma several times over the years and never disappointed. Sadly to say that’s not the case with today’s reservation. It was Easter Sunday and there was a limited menu we were aware of. However the food was less than mediocre, especially at those prices. Our dinners cane out cold or room temp at best. The lamb chops were total fat and inedible . Although the staff did the best they could to rectify the situation I can honestly say we will not be back.

Had the most beautiful meal here at Palma. This is a quaint little gem of a place, beautiful decor and the food was the best meal we've had in NY. We shared several small and large plates, pasta was a highlight as was the calamari and the zucchini flowers - the best I've ever had. Good wine list and price ranges and our server was excellent, attentive but not over the top. This is a place for a special romantic dinner or equally a larger group. They have separate dining spaces which meant it didn't feel crowded and it wasn't overly noisy so you could still enjoy the conversation. We made space for dessert - the cheesecake was just right to finish off a really beautiful meal.
