3 Palms Grille Ratings and Reviews
Do not waste your money. Food TERRIBLE. Tomato soup, had plastic strips in it. The chef tried to claim it was onion skin. Well, onion skin does not stretch when pulled. Also, Having retired from being a sous chef in Westchester County, I do know something about food. The waitress and manager kept arguing and insisting it was onion skin. Not good customer relations. Then my grilled vegetable panini was served. If a handful of over sautéed mushrooms, some sautéed onions, some spinach, about 3 pieces of tomatoes sliced about 1cm thick and overmelted mozzarella cheese (turned yellow) with a dressing is really a the best the chef can do, he should find another profession. The whole thing, except for the bread, looked like mush.
I repeat do not waste your time and Money on this place.
It was a cool and damp evening. Outside, other than sitting at the bar window, was not possible with our guest who needed to sit at a table due to physical problems. Bar stool would not work.
Asked to have bar bites made available since we were sitting in the dining room. The waitress , very nicely, said she couldn't but referred us to her manager. Although politely he refused to vary from policy since the others in the dining would be offended. (At the time there was one other table occupied.) No exception was made, although, there was no alternative other than sitting on a bar stool or outside in the damp weather.
To me it was a lack of common sense as opposed to adhering to policy.
Also, our waitress was outstanding.
The noise level was horrible. We couldn’t hear the people on the other side of the table. Service was terribly slow. 90 minuets between ordering and receiving dinner. Vegetables were undercooked or over cooked. There was no consistency in the temperature of the various food items served. To top it off there were ants crawling on the wall.
We made reservations for New Years Eve for a party of eight. From the time we sat down until the time we left, everything was wonderful. Our waiter, Matthew, was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and very efficient. Everyone in our party thought the food was marvelous and we had a lovely time. We'll definitely be returning.
Had a wonderful experience dining with friends. The food was wonderful. The only issue was the Key Lime Tart. When it was received, it was frozen so if I ordered it again I would make sure to order at the beginning of the meal so it can be thawed out. They did remove it from the bill since it took a steak knife to cut into it but once I got it home, it was delicious. Otherwise, the restaurant is beautiful and the waitress was great.
Food and service was excellent. The problem was the extremely loud bar patrons cursing and carrying on like college frat boys. I think if we come back we will try to eat outside. The bar is just so noisy and overpowers any conversation in the dining room area.
This was, perhaps, our fifth or sixth visit to Three Palms. Each previous experience, regarding food presentation and preparation, was far above average. We happened in on this past Wednesday evening for dinner. Our delightful server, excitedly, informed us that they were offering Lobster Night, for that evening. When we inquired as to the price, she replied that it was $19.00 for a pound and one half lobster, red skin potatoes and corn on the cob. "What a deal!", we said. We'll both have that. And, by the way, please let the chef know that we would like for the lobster to be cooked through. She told us that would absolutely not be a problem. We were willing to wait for the chef to prepare our entrees to our liking. After a more than reasonable amount of time, our entrees arrived. One bite into our lobsters, we were both dismayed to find that the chef, apparently, had no idea what "cooked through" meant. The lobster was close to raw, even slimy! My husband, laughingly, replied that we neither one realized that we were going to be dining on sushi that night. The red potatoes were tasty. The corn on the cob appeared to be of the frozen variety and soggy. We eat lobster on a fairly frequent basis. We have never been presented with such a disappointment in the lobster department. In hind sight, we should have sent our entrees back, upon presentation. But, we are not the type of diners who like to complain. Hopefully, Lobster Night will be suspended until the chef learns how to properly prepare this entree. When we return, we will go back to some of our "tried and trues".
This was my 2nd visit. My first experience, I was wowed. My friend and I both had a delicious dinner. The ambiance and service were both perfect on the 2nd visit but the food was less than okay. I will return in hopes that this was an off night and look forward to being wowed again.
This new spot is tucked away from the mainstream. We were lucky to arrive on a nite that wasn't too busy! They were featuring a new menu with many tempting choices; the cocktails were great and the food and service was very good. You can choose between indoor or outdoor dining. I loved the "Reuben" appetizer (pastrami and Swiss) deep fried in Spring rolls. Super yummy!
First time trying it. Lighting was pretty bad . . . couldn't read menu at table had to walk around to find some better lighting. My wife really enjoyed her fish entree. I hated mine. My meatloaf was hard to cut through (overcooked) and had absolutely no taste! Awful! It's hard to screw up meatloaf so I wonder how the more complicated entrees are . . . doesn't matter because I'm not returning for a second try. One and done for me.
A friend and I️ are outside overlooking water and golf after our tennis match. Ambiance inside and out is contemporary and inviting. We had the chicken sandwich special with pommels frites. Beautiful presentation and tasty food. I️ plan to bring my husband there for happy hour and dinner.
Nice atmosphere but service was terrible and it took us over 45 min to get of food. I had to ask my waiter three times for another drink that he never brought. My table asked for bread and our waiter said sure, then never brought it to the table. I would've expected the forgetfulness if the place was busy, but we were one of 2 tables he had that night. Disappointed, will not be returning
This place is a hidden gem. We have been to 3 Palms a half dozen times for dinner and it's been exceptional each time. The scallops are to die for, as is the octopus, the meatloaf, the Thai salad, the salmon, and the truffle fries. This was our first time there for brunch and we will be back. Bottomless mimosas and exceptional food, our new favorite spot!
WHAT?? WHAT DID YOU SAY??!!
We were so disappointed with the noise level this time when we ate at the 3 Palms Grill. It was ear-splitting inside and outside. It wasn't the first time we ate there. The food is great. All four of us loved our meals -- red and white wine, a vodka martini, the beet salad, kale salad (with shrimp added), several fish dishes, etc. The service was somewhat slow, probably because we were the table furthest away from the patio. We because wanted to be outside hoping the noise would be less there, and hadn't requested it when we made the reservation. So I was grateful to be there, but surprised how loud it was even though we weren't in the dining room. The view outside is fantastic. If only we had a bubble of some sort to cut down on the noise....maybe the old "cone of silence" is needed?
Went for a weeknight dinner with friends and sat outside in the back patio. The view is serene and it was a gorgeous night for dining. In addition to some dining tables, there is a bar area outside, but it did not contribute significantly to the noise volume.
We started with 2 appetizers; Spanish Octopus and Tempura Roman Artichokes. While I enjoyed the Artichokes, the Octopus was outstanding! Very tender and tasty. For entrees, we had the Salmon with the Vegetable Plate, Salt & Pepper Mayport Shrimp, Rack of Lamb, and the Diver Scallops. The presentation was good, the seafood and meat were cooked as requested and everyone enjoyed their meals. I will definitely go back as it was a great dining experience!
This was our first time at 3 Palms. We had heard wonderful things about the restaurant and decided to venture out of Atlantic Beach to try it. We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful interior (recently renovated), wonderful service (Brittany was our bartender & server), fabulous food (we highly recommend the octopus app!) and great outdoor dining options. We highly recommend and we will be back in the near future!
Very satisfied with the Dinner and value. Evening special (Lobster) was not shown on the regular menu nor the evening drink card. Had to ask if the "special" was in effect-very reasonably priced.
Was very surprised that we were seated outside on the patio on a reasonably warm evening, but with a beautiful golf course view. Was told we has not requested a special consideration- seating indoors in AC dining room. The reservation form did not have a chose to distinguish inside or outside.
Would return again as it was enjoyable.
Pleasantly surprised to discover this delightful dinning venue so close to Sawgrass. We loved the complimentary valet parking and the Lobster special was fantastic in quality, quantity, and price. Great looking intimate bar and outside dinning with golf course views. This was a perfect precursor to an evening at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Waitress was a little slow getting to our table but after providing water and drinks her remaining service was excellent. If you are looking for a little off the beaten path place but close proximity to Sawgrass this is the spot!
Don't misread the lack of 5 stars as a dig - that isn't right. 3 stars is GOOD, and it was, and the food was VERY GOOD. On to the details.
The restaurant has a nice feel to it. They did a nice job with the building. The colors are relaxing. It can be a little drafty along the window due to how the AC vents are angled (ladies bring a cover-up and you will be comfortable), and in the room corners below the speakers, the music can channel downward more than expected.
The bar was running short on a few items so we had to change our order, and the initial drink service delivery was a bit slow. After that, the service improved.
The server was helpful with recommendations, and stopped us from making a mistake (thank you Jonnie) regarding the Chicken Marsala. When we ordered it she made sure we knew it would be bone-in and a thigh and wing... we did not. Apparently "airline" style was the menu tip-off. 1) Why any restaurant would want to say airline anything in regard to their food is beyond me. 2) Why do restaurants insist on being so clever as to make menu translations by the server necessary?
The orders were: Grouper , shrimp and grits, and the vegetable plate topped with cobia. EVERYONE ENJOYED THEIR DINNERS! The caesar salad ordered by one was also really good. The wine choices were limited, but that made sense given the size of the place.
There is a lot of competition in PV and JB for dining. This is a nice option, if you are looking for a calmer setting. They are still new - give them a try and see what you think.
We had a server name Johnny horrible didn't even know the menu one server describe the specials how my order came when she described the specials was completely different that was my main problem was the service she didn't even come by to say I'll be back with you within 2 minutes she never even greeted us it took her almost 25 minutes to other people took our orders prime rib is a little chewy I think the Cap's On The Water is much much better I'll never go back here
