Very nice during the week. Noise level on Saturday night was unbearable. Food and service on the weekend was just OK.
Much better on “off” hours.

Good parking and a nice interior. Not too loud and the food was good. Not bad on pricing also.
Will be going back again.

Second time here. Enjoyed it as much as the first time. I was a little disappointed that they didn't acknowledge our anniversary since I stated in the reservation that I wanted it to be a special night.

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.

Maybe because it was a Mon. night, but the food and service was fabulous. This was our first time here and it won't be the last. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. The service was polite and efficient. Lastly, the prices were OK, and the ambiance was very comfortable.

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.

It was a great experience I was able to share with dear friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The ahi tuna was absolutely divine according to my friend Maureen. I have to say my Cosmopolitan was a beautiful smith drink. It was really special.

Food was excellent. We shared the escargot and stuffed mushroom appetizers. Then we shared our dinners. We had the beef Wellington which was cooked to perfection which came with the most delicious mashed potatoes and the Basa fillet which was out of this world. Food presentation was spot on. Excellent date night. We will be back

We tried this restaurant out for Long Island Restaurant week. The parking lot was jam packed (the restaurant admittedly booked a comedy show the same night as busy restaurant week). The bar drinks took forever to come and the mojito was expensive and watered down. The menu is limited for vegetarians with only 1 entree not containing meat (sweet potato gnocci) which was too dense and borderline inedible. The server asked if we enjoyed the meal, I said I did not (as I barely touched my food), but no effort was made to rectify anything. Will not be returning.
