This was my second time in this restaurant. I went there with my friends and we had great time and enjoyed the fabulous food. This time I took my husband and he was impressed as well with the food and ambience. We leave in LA and this restaurant is great and can compete with good restaurants in LA area. Good Job!

This restaurant didn’t have a table open for us. They told us we’d have to wait 45 minutes. They then offered to seat us outside, at the edge of the curb next to the parking lot. Note that I’m not referring to a patio or even near the entrance. But opposite the fountain which sits between the entrance and the parking lot. We declined. As we waited another couple entered and the guy told the host that he had a reservation for 7:30 (as we did also) and he was told the same thing we were told. They were offered the table that we declined and they took it. Please note that while there were other tables outside the entrance only ours was so far opposite the door that one leg touched the curb of the parking lot. It was bad.

My suspicion is that their reservation availability with you hasn’t been altered since COVID-19 leading them to appear to have many tables open that they cannot realistically fill. This is lazy and correctable by them. We had not dined there previously and won’t go back for a long while.

This was our first time at The Palms and we will definitely be back. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions we had to eat in the patio area and it was pretty warm. But everything else was great and we look forwArd to returning when/if things ever return to normal. Our martinis were excellent, the appetizers were very generously side, delicious and reasonable prices. Actually everything was very reasonable, especially the wine. We found the wine selection and pricing to be an excellent value. Mister Ed, the piano player was great, and our waitress, Knarik, was as well. Our only complaint was that our salads came out while we were still eating our apps, but that’s wasn’t a big deal. My lamb was excellent and prepared correctly and my wife’s moussaka was very good as well. Our daughter is at Fresno State, so we aren’t in town often but The Palms will become a regular spot for us whenever we are.

Everything was good to excellent, but the music was so loud that I couldn’t converse with my wife sitting beside me. We will not be going back just because of that.

After not even being able to place an order for 20 minutes they finally bring us our drinks which basically tastes like aspirin in a glass , we decided to leave at that point. Poor customer service and bad tasting drinks.

ALWAYS an enjoyable dining experience at this outstanding restaurant! I usually order their salmon and my husband rallies between the lamb chops, double cut pork chops or the filet. They include a starch as well as seasonal vegetables. This night we started with their oysters Rockefeller and their cheese/fruit tray. We split a Caesar salad. Whatever we choose it's delicious every time. On some Friday and Saturday nights, they offer live music! Love the ambiance and atmosphere at this family owned restaurant. That, coupled with attentive and personable service, equal a perfect night out!!!

Very lovely place! My husband and I came here after our wedding, and we were definitely impressed. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the special. Food was impeccable. The ambiance was very warm and comfortable. There weren’t many other people dining at the time so it was pretty quiet. Definitely will come here for all our celebrations! Also we received an appetizer and dessert on the house. Great service!!!

It is rare that a busy family with high school kids can find an evening to eat together and enjoy the food live music and ambiance, but we did last week and will incorporate into our regular routine of Fresno restaurants. Cheers.

Terrible service. Despite having a reservation, we sat for 20 minutes with even so much as a hello from anyone. Meanwhile two other tables who were seated after us got drinks and orders taken. Got up and left and went somewhere else
