Would recommend only to see if friend had better experience from ours. Server was pleasant enough, but not once did she ask how everything was, can she get us anything. We get better service at Black Angus, Outback, Tahoe Joe's and just about everywhere else.

Also, below expectations were some simple things: no salt no bread basket with our meal (we each got a single roll just as we were seated -- and that's it!!??). How about some recognition on our wedding anniversary, which I had indicated on OpenTable online reservation form; but almost everywhere else we get a "Are we celebrating anything special?" query as we are seated. At the Palms not one word.

Couples to the right and left of us both received a little candle-lit token for their anniversary, but not us. Food was very good to excellent; but they'd be better advised to dress up the food serving less, and paying closer attention to customers.

I haven't left less that 20% tip in a long time. The Palms got about 15%.

We won't be back.

Normally we love the palms and the service is usually great; however, the night we were there it was extremely busy and they seemed to be understaffed. There were also a lot of younger couples with very small children that were allowed to cry and be fussy, the parents didn’t even take them outside which I found annoying. My particular dish was very good however my friends split one of their specials and it was terrible. The server did credit them back for the dish but we were just not happy with the overall service- the ambience that particular night and the food. They also had a piano player that was playing hard rock instead of more softer dinner atmosphere music

We were celebrating our daughter and son in-laws 25th anniversary and we couldn't have selected a better place. Everything was excellent. It's the perfect place for a very special occasion.

We were celebrating a birthday and this was our first visit to The Palms. We arrived early for our 6pm reservation and were immediately shown to our table. The service, surroundings and food greatly exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return for lunch and dinner.

The food was exceptional as usual! We started with the caprese salad...I had the fish special, delicious and perfectly prepared, and my husband had the lamb chops.... my only compliant, but there really are one, is that the portions are large!! we split the salad and brought home some of each of the entrees! that just gives us two nights of enjoying their delicious food!!

My wife and I were in the area for our anniversary and I wanted to find a quiet/romantic restaurant to celebrate. I read many good reviews for The Palms and I decided that we would go there for our dinner. The Palms has earned all of the great reviews and we experienced the same great service and food that mentioned in all of the reviews.

The food was skillfully prepared and the wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. We were both very pleased with our meals. I wish that we lived closer so we could visit The Palms more often!

Our evening at the Palms began with incredible cocktails, I had a Lemon Drop Martini...YUM! We then went to appetizers, calamari, and Babba ganoush...both very delicious!! Our waitress recommended the special Halibut for that evening and it wasn't a disappointment! Yummy fish cooked perfectly on top of Delicious risotto.... the best! We will go back again for a delightful, delicious meal a The Palms.

Beautiful place! Very good service. Worst steak I’ve ever had. Happy Steak is better. No seasoning. Gray coloring. Poor quality of meat. Disappointing. I had the 22oz Rib Eye.

I always want this restaurant to be great, but always leave a bit disappointed. Its the nicest interior designed restaurant in Fresno, so I like that. Our food was above average. But they just miss the mark. For instance, I had a bloody mary, and the celery was limp as a noodle - totally not fresh. My daughter's salmon as a bit over-cooked. Music was techno and a bit loud (and I play rock drums, I have a high tolerance), though they did eventually change it to big band which was perfect (but still loud). I would LOVE this place to step it up two notches so that it was on par or even exceeded it's competitors, it has so much potential. Right now, their prices are as if they were exceptional, but its just above average.

We had a girls’ night out at the Palms and had a wonderful time! There was piano music in the bar and the cocktails were very good. They infuse their vodka with fruit flavors making martinis something special. Our dinner was delicious. The portions were very generous and the service was exceptional. Our waitress came by often to check in and see if we were in need of anything. The ambiance is lovely and the noise level low. We will certainly return and would gladly recommend The Palms for a lovely meal.

Hostess seemed aloof. Server Nikki appeared to be busy with other tables. While the bar/lounge was out of sight, you could hear the noise.
The food was either the best or close to the best we ever had. Prepared excellently and good potion sizes of Sea Bass and Roast Duck. The champagne we ordered was warm when brought to the table, so we asked for more ice in the bucket but the serve did not get any more.

We were there on a Friday night when they have live music playing. Our first table was near the musician and it was too loud to have a conversation so we ask for a quieter table. At first we were told there was nothing else available but she came back within a couple minutes and said she could move us to the back of the bar. It was quieter but still fairly loud. We had steak and the the tuna both of which were good but nothing out of the ordinary. There seemed to be a large amount of regulars who were there that night. An older clientele to be sure. The service was very good though. Our waitress was friendly and the right amount of attentiveness.

The staff there is very welcoming and friendly. We got there a few minutes late and they worked with us on getting our table ready for our sisters birthday. The food was delicious, I got the chicken, one of my sisters got the salmon and the other got the pork-chop. All were made perfectly with the best ingredients. Lovely presentation. The restaurant is well decorated. The only thing is the bar noise was somewhat loud at times, yet when you’re there to celebrate, happiness is always welcomed.
