Server was good. 5lb lobster was very good. Porterhouse was average, definitely not good at this price point, $125. Prime rib special was under cooked and under seasoned. It was below average. Bottle of caymus was fine. Potato au gratin didn't come out until we were halfway through meal, server took off bill, they weren't good anyway. No one ate more than a bite..
shame it went to waste. Was definitely below average. Cheese cake was good. Total bill for 3 people $600. I don't get too hung up on price bc price isn't always just about food. But, as far as upscale steakhouses go it's average at best. The 5lb lobster was delicious, and our server was good, I'll give them that. 1 big complaint, menus online still say they are proud to serve 35 day dry aged prime. Asked server, he informed us They do not dry age anymore.

Went out for Mother’s Day. Took the whole fam out. Server Andrew was great but the steak had no taste. Was told that the lobster wasn’t on the menu but I ordered 5 and was charged 125 each for a lobster that had no taste. I looked at the pictures and reviews and thought for the most part I’ll enjoy this but I guess not. Sides were good and so was the drinks.

My mozzarella cap tees salad was bad- as in spoiled. Steaks not cooked to order, needed a sharp knife for asparagus- and this man 3 tables down ( + social distancing) ! was so loud, so obnoxious- no one could ask him to tone it down? Multiple tables quietly complained. Refunded my salad- not good enough - maybe a glass of wine on the house? Naaa let’s not encourage them to give it another go on their $75 steak. So no DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Miss the valet parking! Also, some regular menu items aren’t being offered. Covid-effect or money-saving? Either way, not very customer-friendly!

Was really disappointed with the service and the food. The wait staff was relatively unprofessional and laid back compared to others steakhouses. Our appetizers and drinks were excellent, but sadly our porterhouse was a bit underwhelming. A long distance behind other Atlantic City Steakhouses like Old Homestead and Morton's.

Overpriced as hell. Paying for a “nice restaurant in a casino.” 55 for a steak with NO SIDES. 16 dollars PER SIDE after that

The palm used to be our go to steakhouse in Atlantic City for a great meal. We feel that recently the food has gone down hill. Both my wife and I felt our steaks were greasy, and became tough to eat after a while due to their greasy taste.

Very disappointed with my experience. I regularly dine in Atlantic City and I can confidently say that the Palm is in serious trouble and I would not waste my time or money.
The food was average diner level food. The signature creamed spinach was under seasoned and the spinach was a frozen product so it was just gummy. The tomato mozzarella app came with the store bought ball of mozzarella you can get at any grocery store so it was tough and stringy. My entrée was good, the chicken parm, and I would recommend. The other entrée, crab cakes, were overworked and the sauce was unbalanced. I would venture to say that the kitchen is a mess.
The service was the absolute worst I've ever had for a restaurant as established as the Palm. Our server was dressed sloppily, did not introduce himself or announce specials, and did not return to our table once we ordered our entrée. When we were finished with our first round of drinks no one was around to take our order for a glass of wine with dinner. Instead we sat at our table for 2 with all the dirty plates, serving plates and empty martini and water glasses from our appetizer round through dinner service.
There is no level of care or attention to detail.

We Had an amazing meal and experience at the Palms. We had cocktails which were delicious and well prepared. Why wife and I shared a surf and reef meal with Novascotia lobster tail and NY strip steak - both outstanding. The waiter cut open the lobster for us so just pure delight. We had creamed spinach which was to die for. Also three cheese potato au gratin. We were too full for desert. We come to AC frequently and plan to return to the Palms frequently.

The Palm is an amazing restaurant, everything about it is great the atmosphere, the waiters,the front desk (the customer service & the experience was overall awesome. The food was delicious and I asked for them without my husband knowing for a cake to be brought to the table and after an amazing dinner our waiter brought one over with a lit candle and said happy birthday,my husband didn't expect a thing lol but the smile on his face was worth it all, thank you to The Palm restaurant for making part of my husband's birthday a memorable one.

We had a very odd experience at The Palm. Service was very good. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. That is about all the good that I can say.

All of our food we ordered was lacking seasoning. All of it was bland. No amount of added salt and pepper could make up for it. The 3 cheese gratin potatoes were a tasteless mound. We couldn't even taste the cheese. The manager just happened to be walking by as we decided to send them back. He was appropriately apologetic and took them off the bill.

The steak was cooked almost to perfection. We ordered medium rare and it came out medium. It had a great crust on it. At first bite, it too lacked any sort of seasoning. Very disappointing.

The only thing that was moderately awakened with added seasoning was the creamed spinach. But we were so disappointed with the overall meal that it didn't change our opinion.

The wine here is a ripoff. We are used to paying double for wine in a restaurant. We spotted a bottle here that we know and enjoy for roughly that. $20 at Total Wine, $49 at the restaurant. Except that was for club members only. The price for non club members was over $100. No thank you.

I can honestly say that the best thing we had was the bread.
