Great service. Great experience. I ended up eating here two days in a row. Both times were consistent and well executed. Intelligent, engaged staff. Really great.

Bad service and long waits for everything. Took about 1.5 hours without dessert even though there could not have been more than 4 tables in the place. Took 15 to get water and about 45 to get our appetizers. Love the palm but would never go back to that location, which I suspect will not be there very long unless operations change drastically. The food was mostly exceptional when it finally arrived. The best clams oreganata with a generous portion and a top of the line New York strip cooked perfectly. The fries were below average and the crab cakes were good. Waiter was inattentive at best.

Service was excellent and was fairly quiet because of the rain. We ordered the NY steak for 2-3 and it was huge, easily enough for three. I'm not a big fan of the NY cut as it usually is tougher and has some gristle to it. I do wish they had a choice of cuts for sharing, it's an economical way to eat and share a great piece of meat. They sometimes offer a porterhouse for two or a Tomahawk steak for two, but this was a weekday so they didn't have those on offer. Otherwise we had the brussel sprouts and hash browns and the sides are excellent. Don't forget to save some room for dessert as they do have a really nice chocolate cake.

This was some time machine experience, I really don’t know how people are still going to such restaurants. Everything looks, feels and even tastes dated. If you’re into expensive average greasy heavy American food with an Italian touch from the 90’s you may like it, but if you’re a true foodie — stay away.

We have eaten at the palm many times and this has been the only bad experience. Food was cold. Had to send back to be reheated. I found the prefix menu hard to read and didn’t fully understand what I ordered when the food arrived. When I voiced that to the server she left and some older lady showed up at the table and literally yelled “is there a problem”. Not a good experience. I will still return to the palm just not on a holiday

We had horrible service and food is just ok. We’ve been quite a bit and it seems to be going down hill. Had to keep asking our waitress for items. I’m sorry when your paying that kind of money you shouldn’t need to keep reminding your server for missing items from your meal.

Food came out cooked perfectly.
Service was excellent
Ambiance on Christmas day a little more busy than usual but the flow of patrons in and out was organized and prompt so there was hardly any wait time assuming reservations were made.
overall great dining experience.

We had a large party (11!) there for an early Christmas Day dinner. Service was great as was the food (as usual). The Palm is Old Reliable- never have to worry about bad cocktails or over-cooked steak. Thanks for making the holiday special and stress-free.
