Excellent service from the moment we drove up to the valet parking. Sat outside which was beautiful. Daughter had gotten us a gift certificate via phone a couple wks earlier. They had it in lovely card form waiting to give to us whenever. Service was excellent. Food very healthy and presented very nicely. No rush. When leaving, we did not have to ask the parking attendant to get our car. It just appeared as soon as we walked outside. Lovely way to spend an evening.

We celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary with a party of 12 people and everything was perfect. The lobster dinner was great and will be joining you again shortly for a party of 4 plus a birthday celebration in December. Your restaurant is a favorite of ours in Ponte Vedra Beach.

I have been to Palm 3 twice. First one I had bar food which was excellent
Then I had the dinner food which was below average.
Wines are good
Desserts could be better. I had vanilla ice cream and it was the worst vanilla ice cream I have had at a restaurant.

Good food for adults but they need to add a few more kid friendly items to menu. The outdoor screen did not sufficiently block the sun and it was was in our eyes as it was setting. (Screen needs an additional shade near the top.) Server was very good. We'd like to go back with kids to enjoy the outdoors if these small items were changed.

We have eaten here before and had a very good dinner but Wed. Night was not good. My friend and I had the lobster special - never again. The lobster was not very sweet, the potatoes very mediocre and the corn inedible. The manager and said they were going to change the corn preparation next week - then why serve the lousy corn this week? He sent over extra veggies of our choice that were ok. My husband ordered the hanger steak which he liked very much. His dessert arrived 15 minutes after his coffee and he refused it. All in all not a good time.

Our server Richie was outstanding! The menu is limited but they did have a special that was good. The salmon was a rather small piece on top of a mound of noodles but tasted pretty good. The happy hour drink choices are great quality, better than most happy hour menus.

Service was really slow we waited almost 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive after we ordered. We went for Sunday lunch and they were not serving the menu that is posted online. We were told that was an old menu. Our server was very nice and did offer to work with us on any special Vegetarian items. For the restaurant to not be busy the food took a very long time to come out! The food was good and we will return. The Avocado toast was delicious and we also enjoyed the Southwest Salad. The Steak and Eggs for bunch was so okay as was the Frittata .

The ambiance and service is wonderful but the menu is a bit limited. Went with a group and we all felt that there weren't enough basics on the menu, like just steak. Most menu items were pretty gourmet with uncommon ingredients/spices. The menu changes seasonally and the latest one seems to be heavy on uniquely prepared fish dishes. I ordered salmon with udon noodles and bok choy, salmon was very good , the udon noodles were way spicy with no mention of that on the menu, bok choy was good but extremely small portion. Would like to see more veggies & dessert options too. Will come back though since it is such a beautiful place.

We have dined at 3 Palms before, mainly for lunch and several times at happy hour. Always a good experience. We brought guests there this past Saturday for dinner and expected a similar good experience. We left saying we will never return. First, the menu was dirty with several food stains. Next, and most important, our order took over 2 hours to arrive. Our waitress had several large groups on the terrace and they occupied most of her time and attention. We were not able to get her attention to complain about the food delay and were reluctant to make a scene in front of our guests. The food was okay after it finally arrived, but not great and overpriced. After mentioning the lengthy time it took to be served, the waitress offered to have the manager talk with us. The manager eventually came to our table, and after apologizing said he would discuss this with chef, and hoped we would return and have a better experience. Hint: would have been appropriate to offer some complimentary drinks, dessert, etc. Also, during the long wait for dinner, maybe some bread or rolls. Needless to say, we will not return.

We went for the big Maine lobster night on Wednesdays. Had a 6:45 PM rez. Ordered a round of drinks at great happy hour prices, and after being served our drinks we were told that they ran out of lobsters. The deal is supposed to be a 1-1/4 Maine lobster for $19.95 on Wednesday nights. The 5 of us were really pumped up for it. I had made the reservation way in advance. According to our wonderful waitress they ALWAYS run out of these things by 6 or 6:30 pm EVERY WEDNESDAY night. I call this Bait & Switch. Frankly, the menu here is overpriced. Anyway, we left after paying for our happy hour drinks and went somewhere else. I guess we'll have to make our next reservation at 5 pm for this lobster special. Just wrong. Demand should equal supply. But apparently this is a "loss leader" that brings em in......

Our first time there after hearing through the grapevine about the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised that the atmosphere was as nice as it was but it bothered me that the art light in our dining room wasn’t working. It was necessary to balance the lighting ambiance in the space. This is important to me, as crazy as it might sound to others.
Our server, Lauren, took a little while to greet us but we instantly became very comfortable with her.
We ordered a cocktail and the avocado toast and a cup of the soup de jour. Both were excellent!
My husband ordered the Black Snapper and I asked Lauren for her favorite recommendation, which was the Ahi Tuna. I took her advice and was so happy I did. It was delicious!
I recommend 3 Palms Grille.

The food was very good, but a little pricey for what you get. Also, the kitchen service was super slow. I felt bad for the server since he knew if was slow and kept apologizing and telling us a number of times our dinner should be our shortly. For as slow as it was that evening, we were surprised with the delay.Fortunately, it was a lovely evening and the house bread and olive oil combo were really good :)

Three palms is a refreshing change. The patio is excellent as it is quieter than the inside, which is small, includes the bar and on a Sat night there was music - too small of a venue to talk. The Patio has huge fans and overlooks the golf course. The catch of the day - grouper was nicely grilled. The catch is sold separately and can be paired with any of the sides, salads or apps as a combo - nice! I had mine over a wonderful wedge salad and my husband had his off the menu which came with a delicious medley of veggies and tiny potatoes. The BEST was the soup of the day - a cold honey roasted peanut soup. OMG! Should have had it for dessert.

Our Father’s Day dinner for my 88 y/o, hard-of hearing father was HORRIBLE! Our family was in and out in 60 mins. I made a 5 pm reservation, requesting a table in a quiet location. The moment we walked in, the place was incredibly loud. The music was loud all over the restaurant but the biggest problem were the drunk women at the bar who, we were told by the hostess and the GM, had been there since brunch at noon. Theses women were still at the bar when we left at 6 pm. Six hours of drinking can cause all kinds of problems. We requested the music be turned down, which they did but it was still too loud. We complained about the noise to the hostess, server and the guy who poured the water. I finally asked for the manager, who said he had been “outside and in the back” and was unaware of the problem. We were the only people seated at a dining table in the far corner. Shortly before leaving, another table was seated next to us. They were also disturbed by the noise. The food was good but not free and certainly not good enough to put up with that kind of disruption. No conversation was possible. How many Father’s Days are left when you are 88? The GM blamed everyone else for not letting him know about the noise. Don’t know why he was outside? No one was sitting out there. We had the restaurant to ourselves, except for these women, and yet we couldn’t hear a word. Our special occasion was TOTALLY RUINED!

As a frequent visitor to Ponte Vedra Beach, I welcomed 3 Palms as an upscale addition to the dining scene. The noise level can be energetic especially when the bar is full and the live band is playing. The first several times I visited, the food was very good and the service OK. (Our server forgot us in the back area.) Future meals took a turn perhaps for financial reasons. The menus were stained with water marks, the molten chocolate dessert was cold, and most disappointing, the lump crab cake had no lump crab. It used to be wonderful but as the waitress explained, they were making it with claw meat (and filling as well.) No adjustment, no apologies. And she had no problem bringing ice cubes when I noted the wine was room temperature. I may try it again, maybe not...

I have been here many times during this past year and I just love it. It is my new "go-to" place to take friends and out of town guests. I always prefer sitting outside by the water. It is such a peaceful scene and the tables are far enough apart that you don't feel like you are sitting too close. Conversation is very easy even when they have live music. It is casual as it is on a golf course so people are dressed accordingly. You won't be sorry going there!!

Upon leaving 3 Palms, my friend who does walk with a cane, fell at the top step. I tried to break her fall and wound up bloodied and bruised. I went in and asked for some help to get her into the car, etc. I returned for lunch the following Wednesday only to discover a large chunk of cement missing from the top stop, right I the middle, where she walked. Duh! I called and spoke with Jose, the manager, who was aware of the problem, they are not sure what they are going to do but did mark it with some black (on dirty gray cement) grid lines. He had the nerve to say...no incident report was filed! Well, an employee came out and helped us - why did she not file an incident report? He never asked my name, never expressed how sorry he was that it happened. And had the nerve to say - what can we do. I said, "put out an orange cone until you figure it out!" I have been by your restaurant several times - no red cone. A law suit waiting to happen. Kicking myself that we didn't address it more when it happened. I do have documentation of what you consider making people aware of the issue - a joke!
