We have eaten here many times before. This will be our last. The steak was probably the worst cooked and under seasoned steak that I have ever had. Mashed potatoes were bland. The sea bass was the only thing that was cooked to the way we were used to in this restaurant. Very disappointed.

For a high end steak house it was only marginal. Ribeye was fatty (more than usual) and had gristle. The filet was a bit dry, even though it was cooked medium rare. Neither had much flavor. The fries were sent back, cold. Second batch hot but greasy tasting of old oil, or something different. Sprouts were bland. Bread was good, service was fair, but not what you expect of a higher end steak house.

High end Restaurant with quality food. Even though my 14oz. South African Lobster Tail was tender and delicious, I thought $125.00 was a bit much, but because we were celebrating my husbands birthday we made an exception.
I think because of Covid, Restaurants in general have been charging extorted prices for some of their high end entree's due to a lack of business. I have seen prices inflated on many items such as food and various other household products during this Pandemic, and looking at the whole scope of what we are going through seems to be unfair for the consumer.
PS: I happen to shop at The River Road Clam House in Lower Bank, they are a seafood
supplier for many restaurants in the area, and the exact 14oz. Lobster Tail which I
have purchased from The River Road Clam House sells for roughly $21.00 each.

This was our 1st time at The Palm in Atlantic city,NJ. We were given bread and butter which was very good, there was a cinnamon raisin bread which was so good. They placed a package of bread sticks in the basket those were yummy too. Our appetizer was the jumbo shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were perfectly cold & meaty. I honestly wouldn't get it again not for its price. They weren't bad just a bit pricey for just 4 jumbo shrimp.
Our entrees we ended up ordering the same steak 14oz Prime New York strip steaks with a shareable side of Three cheese au gratin potatoes. We asked for our steaks to be cooked to a medium temperature.
OMG the steaks were AMAZING !!!!!!! We go to many steakhouses but this steak was incredibly tender melted in your mouth ! And it was a strip usually strips have a hearty bite to them. Cooked perfectly inside and outside charred just right!
I mean we have never taken a bite ,stopped ,and wowed a steak before!
The side was bland we weren't fans of the 3 cheese au gratin potatoes.
The desserts were all the usual crème brûlée, cheesecake, 3 layer cake etc ...Nothing exciting so we skipped dessert.
We definitely would go back for the steaks & try a different side. We had an overall good dinner.

The food for all three diners was a disappointment. The steak had no flavor. The crab cakes were dry and not very tasty. The grilled asparagus was charred. Very disappointing meal. The service was adequate but not special. The dining room is loud.

Food was very good except the steak had to be sent back because it was cold. Service was attentive but felt rushed like they were trying to turnover the tables because of the limited covid capacity. Dress code not enforced-lots of baseball caps and sneakers! Very good but didn't quite meet expectations.

This visit solidifies that The Palm is the best steakhouse in Atlantic City.
We were seated promptly & both Adam the Manager & John the bartender were both very courteous & professional.
It’s always fun to dine there @ look forward to the next time.

Porterhouse was excellent and short ribs were too. Get the breaded asparagus and don’t miss the lobster gnocchi. Our waiter was outstanding. Do not miss this restaurant. Great wine list too!

From the moment we walked in we loved the vibe, we were treated amazingly from start to finish! Our server Will was very attentive and made sure we had all we needed and explained the menu very well! They didn’t have the bottle of wine that we ordered, but the manager (I believe he was) brought us a different bottle and ensured that we liked it before pouring us each a glass himself! Talk about service! Then during our meal we had not one, but 2 managers swing by our table to ensure our food was good! I have nothing negative to say about The Palm, I will definitely be back for another special occasion! Will, thanks again for making our Special Date Night a huge success!

Great Classic Steak House. The service was excellent. I usually order the steak, but a last-minute change of heart ordered the chicken parmigiana. It was the best I ever had.

We use to go here all the time for dinner. Very disappointed considering the amount of “ dust” on the wall sconce lighting at the tables. Since the issue of covid.. the place should be quite clean which it was not. Wooden tables were stick sticky greasy to the touch.
First basket of bread was a mere 2 pieces and served cold pretty sure it was from the day before. We asked for a fresh one and right as our meal came we received it then. Not beforehand.
Steak was ok but absolutely not worth the money. $125.00 a steak. Says for two.. but not much.
Will not return here. There are far better steak houses to choose from.
