    Let’s start with hard rock is amazing hotel. So we expect palms to be same. Well very underpar for quality of the hotel. I will give credit as we were late Amd they moved our reservation. Very nice. Service was very poor. Drinks for the cost. Old fashion at 23 dollars. Nope. Some of our food was forgotten about. Had to ask to take off bill. I could keep going but why. Sorry I hate bad reviews but personally for birthday and family trip we will never eat at the palms again in the hard rock hotel.

    Very disappointed. To be clear, our servers were excellent and attentive. The food was not seasoned well and lacked flavor. We were at the restaurant for around an hour and a half. About 20 minutes after sitting down, the fire alarm strobe lights began flashing. There was no audible alarm, but there are at least 10 of these strobe lights in the main dining room, so it was impossible to avoid seeing one. These strobes continued to go off for the rest of our visit. The servers seemed annoyed- I overheard one saying that it happened all the time. The restaurant was busy so the talking noise level was very loud, but the music was even louder. It was impossible to have a conversation without yelling. Between the hour+ of strobes and excessive noise, we both had a headache at the end of the evening.

    So unbelievably over priced. We are from palm beach and are completely fine with paying for good food. This place has gone down hill. We will be taking this off our rotation. $23 for a side of pasta w red sauce. The size of a child portion. $25 drinks. Come on.

    Kitchen must have been extremely backed up as service was very slow and there weren’t that many people there. Food was good but not good enough for the prices charged. We have been a few times before and this experience was disappointing.

    The creamed spinach was very soupy. No black salt or salt at all on rim for margarita. Steak was cooked well, but not a lot of flavor. Overall, not impressed with the food for the price. My daughter and friend did say the salmon was very good and I loved the wedge salad

    Well everyone has a bad day- i got it. Greeting upon arrival by the “tall man” from what their associates said the head GM , was not nice and very gruff. Got it because its mothers day and they have been grinding all day. Waiter, will not use his name, was not engaging at all, got it as he probably was there all day. Sorry act like you care. Slow service at best however, if someone may have updated us to tell us , “Kitchens behimd but we are working on your order” would have been nice but never happened. After the salad we never did see rhe waiter for about 20 minutes. He came back eventually and looked at us like he forgit something- like our entrees. I did ask a manager walking by to check in the food. He said he moved our ticket up to get cooked next- sounds to me like the wauter forgot to put the order in. I have no proof of that but, looks like, felt like, sounds like tye waiter did not put in the order. In ten minutes or less after that engagement our food came out. Waiter brought the plates out bare handed that tells me the plates were cold. I sent the vegtables back as they were really cold. I ate my steak , no choice as i was hungry. My wife ate half of hers. Appetite was lost. I did talk to a kind and nice manager on the way out and told her our issue and we did not want a discount and just handed her the paid in full dinner check with notes on the check with the many issues. This appears to be an issues in many of their restaurants. We have experienced the same stuff in Denver , Vegas and Orlando. No one cares but we will never eat at a Palm again.

    The only issue was after we got home we noticed the receipt charged us for wrong veal dish. We had veal martini not veal parmigiana which was 20.00 more than the other. I wish I would have checked more closely.

    The steak was overcooked and flavorless. Wayyy too overpriced to taste like that. They were out of 3 different bottles of wine I had selected so we went with our 4th choice. Server was very friendly. overall not worth the price tag.

    Challenging dinner at the Palm Orlando. Not an exceptionally busy night but the service was not up to standard for the Palm. We ordered a number of items that were not served - oysters as an appetizers, asparagus fritte (received grilled)- those were removed and our asparagus fritte showed up after I finished my bone in filet. My steak was outstanding. My wife ordered a shrimp dish with a side of pasta - the pasta was served dry & crisp - words cannot describe how awful it was. We ordered two desserts, espresso & tea. After almost 15 minutes we got two desserts, cold espresso and no tea! My wife was convinced that the waiter threw in the towel and gave up on us. The manager checked in and offered to make things right - the meal continued to go down hill. I have never been disappointed at the Palm Orlando. I will go back - but I’ll need to manage the process better and that’s not how I like to dine.

    Way too expensive for what you get. A little piece of steak was $56 and that was all you got…no sides no veggies, nothing! Just a ti y piece of steak with no flavor at all. I spent over $100 for myself to have a piece of steak, a salad and a shared side. I would never eat there again.

    Service was great. Apps were so so and my son's veal was very undercooked. We ate separately since we had to wait for a new meal. Was hoping to be blown away but instead left underwhelmed to say the least. $450 for two should've been memorable for great food. Maybe just an off night. Too bad for us.
