    Sadly, this branch of the Palm did not measure up to Boston and NYC. The lobster bisque was tepid. The fried calamari was not hot. The Chicken Parm was outstanding. The accompanying linguine was way beyond al dente--alas, it was mush. Overall, given the price, I was disappointed.

    We came here with high expectations because of the reviews I have read, and honestly the price point. The environment was very nice. The service was great. However, the food left something to be desired. At that high of a price point, you have to expect something out of this world delicious. Unfortunately, that was not the case, my husband steak was undercooked, and while they did take it back, they just put a quick sear on it and it was still undercooked. Flavor was lacking all around. While it was an OK experience, we won’t be going to the palm again .

    Great time here tonight to celebrate our anniversary. Our server Bess was awesome. Took great care of us. I had 3 great old fashioneds that were terrific. The food was great. I had the bone in ribeye, cooked to perfection. My wife had the shrimp sautee which was great. The star of the meal was the sides. The three cheese au gratin potatoes might be the best side I’ve ever had. They were so creamy and melted in your mouth. The green beans with prosciutto were great too. Plus they gave us a huge wedge of carrot care for our dessert. Definitely enjoyed our time and will return again.
