The servers were a little distracted by nothing so I dont know why it was so hard to flag them but otherwise, I love this place.

Honestly I was disappointed. We were left waiting to check in with the host for several minutes and when he did arrive he seemed super inconvenienced. That set the tone for the evening. The flatbreads were good but I didn’t order anything beyond that because 1. It was so hard to eat at the small low table we were sat at and 2. We felt so unwelcome with every interaction with our server (who was also the host) that we finished up and went to another restaurant to continue our evening.

Horrible service! The pizza tasted frozen. Took 30 minutes to get our drinks. Our server was no where to be found. The manager did comp a lot of our meal. But we won’t be going back. So many better places in LA

Definitely more of a lounge than a restaurant. I went here for a birthday and we made a reservation for 8 - they sat us at a small table, probably more apt for 4 people and then when it came down to ordering food they mentioned we would have to dine in waves because the food cannot fit all 8 people... Meanwhile the place was rather empty and I feel like they should have sat us at a larger table to begin with. So yeah, if you want to dine in heats and elongate your evening, go for it. The food was good! I just would not recommend for large parties. Nor would I call it a typical restaurant.

When I read the reviews talking about poor service I thought I'd still go ahead and try the place, but oh boy were those reviews right.

I've never had a colder, sadder, more unwelcome experience than here at Palma. It's like servers here actively avoid you or pass you off to the next colleague. I saw 2 women come in and sit at the table next to us, nobody bothered to check in on them and they left after 15 mins.

The food was okay. This is really not a dinner friendly place as they have low lounge chairs and even lower coffee tables not comfortable for eating a proper meal.

I think this place is best for those already staying at the hotel and just looking for a drink or 2 with some friends. No meals. If you're going on a date or have a celebration of some sort, this place will totally suck the joy out of your night.

We made reservations for dinner at Palma weeks in advance. However, when we arrived for our seating, we were placed in a corner in the back by the busy bar at a tiny table that was not meant for 3 people to have drinks let alone eat dinner. Food and drinks were overpriced and wait staff acted annoyed to serve us.
It was a Very disappointing experience overall.

Took the wife out for drinks before heading out to dinner, I was in the mood for ambiance. Palma had it nailed perfectly. A somewhat Moroccan feel with quaint spots to sit, chat and enjoy a drink. Attentive service with just the right amount of "checking in" as to not interrupt my wife's slide from motherhood into relaxing Diva. A great way to start our evening on the town.

If you came to check out the design, you won't be disappointed. The real palms planted indoors were pristinely pruned. We were also impressed with the food. I will say across all three restaurants on the property -- and many other places with incredible decor, the aesthetic design features didn't exactly translate to the most comfortable seating for a meal in all cases. Honestly, this wouldn't even cause hesitation for me to return, but if you have physical accommodations you need met, you will definitely want to chat with someone at the restaurant in advance.

Everything about the place was great except for Jacob stealing our money when we tried to split the check, I’d come back but I definitely would ask for a more experienced or even all around nicer and more attentive Waitor(tress) . Jacob was not good at all

The design of the hotel was beautiful and the drinks were delicious. Unfortunately the chairs are so comically large and artistic that you can’t comfortably sit in them and eat, additionally the food was really disappointing and our server clearly did not want to be there.

I would go back for a drink at the bar but no need to try the food.

Had to send my vegetarian pasta order back twice because it was way too salty. Apparently other tables had the same issue with the dish too. They were lovely about it and comped the dish, but I ended up eating their truffle Parmesan fries for dinner instead, only to throw them up a few hours later. Just drank water while I was there, no alcohol was involved at all. So there is that 🤷🏻‍♀️

I like the vibe but wasn’t that impressed with the food.

A very nice hotel. Just the place was super cold, because of the airco.

It was very pricey

I actually have reserved with time ahead and also to have a quiet and private place, but that wasn’t noticed and considered
