We came here for my girlfriend's birthday and absolutely loved it. The service was fantastic - they very polite and attentive. Food tasted excellent and what I loved the most was we were seated in a cozy area of the restaurant away from the noise where I didn't have to raise my voice just to speak across the table. I honestly cannot ever recall having dinner at a restaurant where we got this kind of experience.

友人の誕生日ディナーで利用。店内は沢山生花が飾られ、とても良い香り。中庭は花とライティングでとてもロマンチック。
お料理は想像以上にどれも美味しく、特にパスタは茹で具合もアルデンテで美味でした。店員もとても細やかに対応してくれ、誰が誕生日かデザートオーダー時に伝えましたが、ちゃんと事前に察知し理解していたよう。予定通りにキャンドル付きのケーキを彼女の前に。しかも全員にスパークリングワインまで。3人で既に2本空けていたので、それもあってサービスかもしれませんが、とても粋な計らいで始終気持ちよく過ごせました。NYのレストランは騒音が凄いですが、ここは全員が口を揃えて静かだねと言ったくらい落ち着いた客層と雰囲気でおススメです。

Service was not great. Waiter mumbled and stuttered while attempting to read off his cheat sheet used to help memorize the list of specials.

Waiter guilted me into not requesting another wine tasting before finalizing my wine choice.

Little attention spent to us during the meal.

Left waiter with a 15 percent tip (undeserved), and was chased down by the waiter as we were leaving the restaurant requesting to know why I didn’t tip more.

Food is over priced and not worth the money.

I love Palma and I’ve been there many times and have always left good reviews. This was the first time I felt like the whole experience was lacking.

Cons
-We only saw the waitress when we ordered drinks and food, other than that she never checked on us.
- They were out of decaf espresso and coffee, which doesn’t seem like a big issue but I can only drink decaf. Caffeine and I don’t mix well
-The air turned on at one point and it felt like we were sitting in a wind tunnel. It was cold to begin in the back and this made it almost unbearable.
-The French toast was raw on the inside.
-And as we were wrapping up they started getting ready for a wedding we presumed and were using loud power tools.

Pros
-The gnocchi was amazing, as was the cacio and Pepe ravioli, and the eggs in tomato sauce.

As I said before, we love Palma, and I’m sure we will be back, but this experience wasn’t great and it was made all the worse by the fact that we were celebrating my mom’s birthday.

We definitely enjoy the back room more than the main dining room. The food is always good, but the room was pretty loud and crammed. We love it here and will return the next time we're in town. Thanks, Palma!

The food and the surrounding were very good . Portion size was fair. Two complaints . First the service should have been better. The waiter was polite and not attentive to what I wanted . Secondly I asked for a glass of house wine, which I had two and when I got the bill they wanted $40.00. I complained to the waiter who immediately cut that bar bill in half. My complaint was the wine was a blend and that I was over charged. My recommendation is to order from the wine list to avoid this problem

Food was great, and whilst the service was generally good - we did have to wait 20 minutes before our first drink was served. Our appetizers had been served, and at the second time of asking, our cocktails arrived. A relatively small detail, but slightly annoying.

First experience, lunch today, after years of forgetting it was right there by Faicco's and Murray's, where we routinely trek from way-uptown to shop. Very pleasant experience. Nice space, great hospitality, good food, nice wine, limited lunch menu but enough good choices. Didn't realize until today that Palma involved several interconnected spaces: front room, back room, private rooms, wine bar. Would be a great choice for a small private party.

The food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant itself is romantic and charming. The service left something to be desired. First, we arrived and there was no hostess to greet us so the bartender told us to wait and she'd be right over. No issue there. However, after about 5mins, some other patrons came in, walked right by us and went to the back to find someone and they got taken care of by the hostess before we did. Then, we had a reservation, were told to wait even though there were like 4-5 tables empty right in front of us. Then she eventually sat us at one of those original empty tables. Our server, although knowledgeable, also left something to be desired. We finished our appetizers before he brought us the bottle of wine we ordered prior to the food. And completely didn't bring over the side dishes we ordered for our meal and didn't realize it until we were done with our entrees. We were also sat in a table where I probably got knocked into like 3-4 times. Maybe we went on an off night. The food on the other hand was great - the lobster spaghetti had so much flavor. The pappardelle with lamb was delicious.

Very nice room and welcoming staff. The gluten-free pasta was terrific and worth a trip for that alone. Fried artichokes need a sauce or something and more trimming. Very, very chewy and not crispy. White wine not chilled enough and the waiter ignored my husband mentioning it to him. I asked for ice. Red wines were offered to try before buying the bottle and settled on a great bottle recommended by the waiter. Veal chop milanese crispy and juicy. Meatballs very good. Fritto misto light and crispy. Cauliflower appetizer tasty. All in all a nice meal with friends. Never felt rushed or ignored.

Was recommended by my brother and have been meaning to try it since we bought our West Village Place. We waited by the door for about ten minutes without a greeting. Showed to a table in the garden room which has uncomfortable chairs and tiny tables. Our server was charming but all of the runners and busboys were devoid of any charm whatsoever. Food was average to poor. Very old fashioned, pastas were way to al dente (to the tooth, not crunch the tooth). We had high expectations and left feeling we had paid a lot for a very anonymous evening.

Upon entering the outdoor space, you feel as if you have stepped into Provence or Tuscany.... so quaint and beautifully decorated. The services was excellent, our waiter Chris was attentive and engaging. My friends and I enjoyed the wine and most of the entrees. There was an issue with the steak, which was tough despite it being medium-rare. So I would recommend sticking to the pastas and other dishes that they are more know for (there is a seafood dish with a pizza crust on top that looked amazing!). Because we were unhappy with the steak, dessert was complimentary. Overall, would go back and plan to go back for brunch in the near future.

We had our family Christmas lunch at Palma. The food was great, authentic Italian!, and our waitress (Claudia) was very kind and patient with us.
Everything we ordered was outstanding, especially the scallops and the tagliata di manzo.
Special mention to the tiramisù dessert: wonderful!

I think Palma is great, but it is trying to go beyond what it is, a neighborhood place that has good food and good service in a pleasing atmosphere. It has over priced itself, this makes me sad. You cannot justify the bill you get at the end of the meal...come on guys, bring it down and you would be filled to the rafters. As of now, it is easy to get a reservation, because you have over priced what you are. I am a fan, but really bummed you are now a very pricey place to go. BTW... Second time we have tried the Artichoke appetizer. A few pieces are good, but most of it is inedible, the leaves on an artichoke that are too hard to chew, should not be served. Once again this is what the waiter suggested.

We had eaten at Palma on another occasion and were quite satisfied. The food and service were exceptional. On this visit, the food and service were terrible. The menu in the restaurant was not the same as the menu posted on their website and the service was inattentive and sloppy. The food was not very well prepared and was disappointing.

Long on charm and atmosphere, the food mostly lived up to expectations. Seafood was admirable, though certain details (the antipasto, for example) would have done better with a little less "filler". By and large perfectly good value and with a notable wine made for an enjoyable evening amongst friends. Service for a busy Thursday night was properly attentive but with multiple servers stopping by to continually re-fill one's glass, you can't help but get the feeling they would have liked us to drink faster and order more. All too typical in downtown NYC.
