    We went for a special promotion which included an upgrade for a 4 lb lobster for two. They substituted two 2 lb lobsters. We set in the bar area in a booth, so sometimes our server was also bartending but she was also very accommodating. Overall good experience.

    We normally eat here before seeing the shows at The Majestic. Last night wasn’t the best. The service was okay but the food wasn’t up to par. We ordered a steak and chicken parm with butter noodles. The steak was ordered medium rare it came medium well to well done. Our chicken parm was burnt so they added more sauce to it. And the butter ended up being garlic butter. When the steak was replaced the steak wasn’t cooked right again but by that time it was time to go to the show. It was a bit of a let down with all the issues for the full price meal we paid.

    Celebrating my wife’s birthday and was fairy disappointed. The service was very good though. The food, not as much. Our filet was butterflied and was over cooked: dry and hard. The manager did get another one but it was over seasoned. The shrimp risotto was hard and not too flavorful with hardly a shrimp. Salad was pretty good though. The sea bass is no longer served by itself and is smaller in size than usual and your forced to have in sauce. May be a while before we come back, if we do at all.

    Steaks and sides were delicious! We have found that sides at steakhouses are typically subpar but the au gratin potatoes were cheesy and hot. The drinks are in the expensive side but good. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and loved the touch of giant homemade crotons on the Caesar salad.

    Fue verdaderamente desagradable, el lugar se especializa en carne y ha sido el peor filete que me he comido el manager nos pidió disculpas porque efectivamente estaba mal cocinado pero nos dijo que ya no estaba nadie en la cocina ( eran las 9 pm ) y que no podía hacer nada, nos ofreció un postre ( jamás llegó ) y nos cobraron completo el filete, mi esposo tuvo que entrar hasta la cocina para pedir ketchup ya que nadie nos atendía, nos sirvieron mal las bebidas y se tardaron mucho en cambiarlas TODO MAL hemos estado en otros rest the Palm y este no tiene nada que ver.

    the food was very bad, the burgers were burnt, we ordered a mac n cheese and they brought us an alfredo pasta, the salad was very salty. The only good thing was the service. I will not return to this palm. Later we understood why it was empty.

    We came in at 6pm on Christmas Day. Pretty much the entire dining room had already received their meals except for our table and possibly 3 others. We ordered a bottle of wine, appetizers and two 16oz ribeyes. It took the kitchen foreverrrrrrrrrr to get each entree to the table. By the time that the steaks came to the table there wasn't a single person left in the dining room which didn't make sense to us. The atmosphere reminded me a bit of an Applebees. It wasn't sophisticated refined, especially for the prices on the menu. We probably wouldn't select this place again. It wasn't the worst but it was far from the best!

    Family Christmas dinner here was wonderful! Our waitress was outstanding, funny and attentive. Food was perfection served with smiles. Atmosphere was quiet, as we dined early, and our family thoroughly enjoyed everything about the entire evening. We were especially pleased that our waitress was so engaged and attentive to our 7 year old, who sent his compliments to the chef for his perfectly prepared medium rare filet. Nice job to all who cooked and served!
