    The food was great. I had the fried rice, someone else the poke bowl and our third person had the scallops. We all loved our dishes. The only downside was that it was cold in the restaurant. But not unbearable. I offer this comment only so that other people are aware and bring an extra layer on cold days.

    I don't like most of the food there but my wife likes the fish. I ordered the a hamburger that was ok. I ordered a draft beer but even though it was on the menu, they no longer had draft beer. The few bottle beers that had were horrible and the one I finally ordered was worse than horrible. My wife ordered the scallops with risotto. The risotto was terrible. The table we were sited at was dirty. There were three dogs in the restaurant which seems to be against health codes. They were not seeing eye dogs.

    Great outdoor ambiance. Some of the food--kalbi ribs, loco moco, tempura--was fantastic! Some dishes--French onion soup, poke bowl--not as good. The service was excellent, really top notch. Overall, we really enjoyed our meal and experience.

    We sat outdoors and the weather was perfect and I had the Sea Bass and it was prepared just right, very flavorful and appetizer Coconut Shrimp and and Tempura was great as well. I also love the dessert Hula Pie which was oreo crust and coffee ice cream. The service was also very good.

    For where the restaurant is located and the price of food items on the menu, I expected things to taste much better. I had the 7oz. filet mignon with butter mashed potatoes and creamed spinach with mushrooms and the dish just lacked the flavor punch I was hoping to experience. The quality of the ingredients seemed good. My wife had the chicken linguine and the dish was also lacking in flavor. I don't think we will return here.

    Selection and execution of cuisine was terrific. Portions look small on arrival, but were fantastically satisfying. The service was friendly but exceedingly slow; 20 minutes for an initial return to take drink requests. Might have been a short staffed day, but the extreme waiting definitely impacted our experience.

    Usually a good value for the food offerings. We ordered guacamole and calamari. Both were good. I’ve had the Korean ribs previously and not only does it look amazing but tastes really good. They were out of the French dip so I opted for the Asian salad. The Napa cabbage was yellow, shredded carrots dry with slivered almonds and green onions. They drizzled a peanut dressing (tossed is always better) but overall underwhelming. Our daughter had the steak street tacos and most of the steak was all fatty tasting and looked like trimmed leftovers. The service was incredible, very accommodating and friendly.

    One of my favorite places! Got the street tacos and they were good and a wedge salad for dinner which was moldy and slimy in the middle. I showed it to the waitress and she just said “oh”. The major issue besides the slime on the salad was that we had one waiter take our order, another deliver it, another bring our drinks, another drop the check and yet another pick up the check. Nobody took overall responsibility for the table. Hence just the “oh” when I showed her the salad. She really couldn’t have cared less. Too bad as we come here weekly after church and love the ambiance.

    Food was terrible for all of us. My burger was tepid, bland gray meat, short ribs were stringy & chewy, sea bass was dry over starchy noodles. Ambiance was nice (outside table), service was ok, but awful awful food made it a not-great experience. So disappointed!! 😥

    Korean ribs were too tough to even cut with a steak nife, sent back to kitchen and switched to salmon, which was not really blackened. In a party of five no one really had anything good except for the desserts, which were really good. Do not plan to go back again.

    Have always loved this restaurant both for its atmosphere and food. However this time around we were disappointed with the service and lack of draft beer. Our server tried his best, but it was obvious that they were short staffed and told us the draft beer at the bar was broken.

    The Palms has the most gorgeous outdoor seating. Our server was polite but in general they're very much under-staffed. I have no doubt that were it possible, our server would have checked in with us more often. The was is a solid okay - you get the feeling that not much is made from scratch but I can't verify that. In any case - Palms is a good place for brunch for the outdoor patio alone.

    The food quality was not good. We order Asian salad and Cesar salad with chicken and the chicken was too dry in both, the dressing is the one you buy in the supermarket. The Calamari was chewy and the Kalbi ribs meat was hard. The service is horrible, our waiter forgot to bring some drinks we order since the beginning. The place is so nice that is so unfortunate that the food and service is so terrible. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.
