As our family have been to Palmer's many times over the past 10 years, it was as always, a wonderful evening. It was a family celebration . From the start we were attended to by our waiter, Abe. Every detail from our cocktails to our perfectly prepared meals; sea scallops, petite filet mignon to chicken campognola, was terrific. We were able to sit to enjoy the food, the music, and each other's company. Desserts were generous and delicious, especially the raspberry almond tart, gelato sliders and berry sorbet. A wonderful evening was had by all.

I was using my final group with this restaurant Friday night with my wife. The chicken had a funky flavor to it, I know it wasn't spices because me and my wife both ordered chicken and two different dishes, both tasted spoiled. That night I got sick during Deadpool 2, we had to leave the movie theater.

This was our third time at Palmer's and the only time we did not order steak. Usually the steaks are great, I guess their chicken is bad.

Would not recommend to friends/family and will not be returning after this incident.

The restaurant is decent but everything seemed kind of sweet including the scallops. My son felt for $36 only 4 scallops was skimpy for the price. I also feel there should have been more vegetables given, as the portion seemed a little skimpy.

Food was ok
Service was very good

Menu had limited choices - only 1 fish dish & extra charge for vegetable was not the ones that came with your entree
Not much choice of vegetables either

Prices were extremely high for steak entrees considering this is not considered a steak house. I’ve been to places that were much more reasonable and had a more varied menu. Specials were outrageously expensive

Noise level was high. Not my favorite place to dine

Waitress was horrible. Busman was throwing plates on to tables when clearing and resetting tables. He also threw our doggie bag take home food on our table. The food was below average ... that’s why we needed a doggie bag. Too expensive too waste, so I figured I could make a semi decent sandwich out of the uneaten protein.

First time dining here after hearing great things about this place. They are all true! From start to finish we had an excellent experience. The waitress was attentive without being intrusive. The arugula salad was excellent as were the seafood crepes. I was so full after those couldn't eat my entrée. Will definitely be back!

Make sure there are no private parties booked when you go as this caused us to wait 45 mins for a table WITH a reservation. The French Martinis were just what the doctor ordered. Escargot was in need of garlic but the Sea Scallops and Fish entrees were AMAZING! Creme brûlée and chocolate lava cake were yum! Desserts and appys were on the house due to the wait. Would definitely come back!

I have visited Palmers many times. The food is amazing, the servers are pleasant and attentive.
But the service tends to be slow. You will wait 15-30 minutes after your reservation time for a table, and you must allow 2 to 2.5 hours for dinner.

The meal was great. I was taking my guest out for her birthday. While noted when I made the reservation, nothing was said when we arrived or at the table. When we arrived, I told them we had a reservation but they told us to just go into the dining room and seat ourselves. Service was very slow, but the food was excellent. I consider the service issue to be an aberration. The dining room eventually got pretty crowded and there was a large party (more than 10) already seated when we arrived. There was only 1 waitress. She did a great job, but I suspect it was hard on her as well as the kitchen. It wasn't an issue for us as we were in no hurry. I will definitely go back. The food was great. We had salads and sandwiches.

I had really been looking forward to having beef Wellington for the first time and was anxiously awaiting our reservation. Unfortunately I had To send mine back TWICE, as the first time my beef was almost rare (had ordered medium) and the puff pastry was raw and goopy in spots. They re-fired it and when I got It back the beef was so over cooked and somehow the puff pastry was STILL raw. I ended up just ordering the duck instead which was just ok. The crab cake appetizer was good but I found A piece of shell in it, and the ‘angels on horseback’ app was greasy.
The waitress was very nice and apologetic but I thought that the owner should have come over to apologize or offer some sort of compensation. They didn’t charge me for the beef (which I would Expect) but sending over something while I waited for My new entre would have been nice.
Overall I thoughtThat the food was not worth the price and probably won’t go back again.
