Loved the service, so welcoming and informative. Front of house team were so lovely and offered me a choice of tables. Francoise is the most incredible, knowledgeable and personable host who talked through the menu options so thoughtfully.
My guest and I had a wonderful experience. The food was so delicious and fresh and the portion size was just right.
The noise level in the back garden was minimal from 6-730pm but then it was harder to talk over the noise towards the end. But that is NYC style so it won't deter me from returning!

They were out of several items on the menu by 8pm which was a little disappointing. The barking dog at the table next to us was also kinda rude. It’s still a special place and I’m sure they are doing everything they can during these times.

Very good Italian food. A bit expensive but really good quality. The service was not exceptional. Serving at the table with no gloves and fingers too close to the food, and taking the mask off when you talk to clients, is not the best when the pandemic is not over yet.

Everything at Palma was great. Since it was my birthday, I had mentioned that on the reservation, I thought that they would at least put a candle in my dessert, which they didn’t. Was a little bit disappointing, since this was my first date with my husband in over 1.5 years, and the first time we got some alone time ever since we had a baby. Other that this, the food was great, the service was great, and the ambience was nice.

Hands down some of the best food I have ever had. It was soo delicious and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Though we made a reservation we had to wait almost 30 mins for our table. Eventually one of the staff allowed us to sit and an open table while we waited. The planning for tables and seating could be better.

Asked specifically for the garden and then arrived and was told it was closed. It was the whole point of why I went and the fact that they didn’t alert me earlier (despite leaving instructions in my reservation) was irritating. It was a birthday lunch and they ruined it.

It felt very authentic Italian and made us want to return to Italy. Our waiter was also the sommelier, and he steered us toward a very nice bottle of wine that paired well with our food and was less than half the price of many of the bottles on the menu. He was personable but not intrusive. The food was very good.

We have eaten at Palma in the back patio several times during the pandemic. It had been excellent and lovely until our most recent visit. I had requested the patio in my reservation notes, and at 5pm on a Sunday, I didn't imagine that would be a problem. Turns out there was a sizable wedding in the patio, so we sat on a noisy, dirty sidewalk in ratty chairs, notably uncomfortable for one of our four recovering from an injury, and by and large we found the food a rank below all prior experiences—not a big surprise if a wedding was being tended to by most all the staff & kitchen. I will try again, but only if a call in advance can ensure the patio & an assurance that no event is taking place. It is notably pricier than many like-minded Italian spots in the neighborhood and usually worth it, but not last night. (Note too I did speak with someone the day before to reduce our party size from 5 to 4, giving them opportunity to see my note again and share with me that my patio request would not be possible and that a large event would be going on.)

Service was very uneven - different tables seemed to get different attention. Food was rather salty. Pasta, while fresh was a bit too chewy. Biggest turnoff was the service. Best dish from our table was - believe it or not - the scrambled eggs with parmesan. Something perhaps to do once but a $30 pasta dish that is too salty and chewy and not served with warmth takes it off my list.

Waiter was incredibly inattentive. Music was hilariously bad (we were hoping to hear Amber Mark but they played a very weird selection of music instead). Pastas were tasty but definitely overpriced. The charcuterie board (which was more expensive than our main courses) and panna cotta (one of my top 3 favorite desserts) were underwhelming. Would not return.
