We had a large group of 13 people for Father’s Day brunch, which included three small children. It was absolutely perfect—private dining area, great service and wonderful food. And not overpriced at all. Highly recommend!

Service was impeccable. One of the best lunch time servers I have ever had , and I work in Hospitality.

Timing and pacing of drinks, apps, entree and coffee was completely on point. The food was very good.

My only complaint is that when I approached the host stand , the gentleman asked me if I was looking for UPS.. I was wearing tan capris and an embroidered navy top, so maybe the tan pants threw him off. I was unsettled about it , but he recovered when I told him no UPS, I have a reservation with a friend l. So that was a dark cloud on an otherwise really good lunching experience

My steak was perfect but my friends steak was underdone.
My steak was center cut filet and may have been the best I have had in memory.

I found this place just by chance but it was pretty awesome. The ambiance was nice. Looks like there is a portion of this place where they can open the windows by the outdoor walkway, that also faces the lake, so I bet its super nice during good weather days. Our server was very polite and kind (a little slow on the service sometimes) but overall I would still say it was good. The food was delicious.

Wonderful service from our waiter, Tomas. Phenomenal steak, delicious salmon made for a perfect birthday dinner. Modern, but still feels like a classic Chicago steakhouse. Will definitely return.

For being a restaurant located in the Swiss hotel is was doable. We weren't that impressed with the food. We weren't asked if we had allergies or dietary restrictions. The drinks were delicious. The space was clean and the servers were friendly. If a friend asked for a recommendation, I would recommend The Palms. We most likely won't go back either.

Can’t go wrong with oysters and a crab cake sandwich for a Saturday lunch. If you want more, get a 3-5 pound lobster which I had a few weeks ago.

The Palm’s food is always so well prepared. Excellent scallops, the best quality beef filet, perfect caesar salad. Their two-course fixed-price lunch for $26 is a great value. Wines are a little on the high end, but are so good, it’s worth it. I like that sunroom with big windows on 3 sides, that can open for fresh air. This has become a favorite place.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.
