Their space heaters are set too low typically. I was cold the entire time. Food is always good but not excellent.

I cannot say good enough things about this place. Everyone was quick to help from the hostess to the wait staff, they were especially quick to get the heaters on (thank you!). The food was incredible; I’ve had some disappointing filets before but theirs is truly incredible, the salmon was delicious as well. I can’t wait to dine there again!

Nice job of outdoor serving. The Sea Bass and the Mahi Mahi were excellent. Sad to see they have eliminated many of our favorite menu items.

Great patio seating and exceptional service. Dishes were expected for the price point and the wine list had enough to make it a nice business meal. Great waiters !

Lovely ambience. The food was OK. I was recommended by the server to have the fish which was highly overcooked and overpriced however everybody else who had much lighter dishes enjoyed their meal. Our server however showed up 30 seconds after we sat down and asked for our order immediately. I understand there is a 90 minute maximum seating however she was trying to shove us out before we even sat down and it was extremely awkward. She did not have a knack for hospitality and customer service. We will come back just hopefully not be seated in her section!

This is a great location during the pandemic. No tent. Tables spaced 6 feet apart and away from the sidewalk (well, most of the tables). Pandemic aside, the location is very nice - as it always has been regardless of which restaurant is here. The surprise was the food was very good. We enjoyed our dinner here.

The hostesses at this fairly upscale restaurant are a bunch of 18-yr old high school girls that truly don’t know what they’re doing. You need a professional host at a restaurant of this caliber.

The rest was excellent though.

The Palms offers the best outdoor ambiance of any restaurant in Santa Clara county. Waiters are courteous, friendly, attentive and treat customers respectfully. The menu may not be super extensive, but what they offer is well prepared and very tasteful.

We had a dinner reservation, and they seated us in a dark, windy spot with a broken outdoor heater. The hostess was not accommodating when we asked to be moved to a different open table. Instead she said those were reserved and tables were assigned by their computer system. We were left at the cold table for 40 minutes while the manager worked to get us seated in a better location. The food was good and the server was very helpful, but the hostess staff was a mess.

Actually quite good lobster bisque. Everything from steak to fish was pretty good. Waiting for the full menu to come back before full review. Like it so far.

Nice place but, went for special occasion (birthday). Even though I noted it on the reservation, we weren't asked and treated as usual.

The food was average. Scallops and risotto was fine though the scallops were a little overcooked. Seabass was good but noodles was drenched in the sauce makon it feel like a soup.

For the price i would have wanted a better experience. Other parties seemed to enjoy themselves. However I felt unattended to.

This was my first time at The Palms, and we went because there were vegan options on the menu. The food was excellent. I had the tofu udon noodle dish and loved it. We ate outdoors on the patio. The service was fantastic. We will definitely be back.

My girlfriend and I had an awesome time. Food was just perfect and service was great. We made some changes to the menu and they had no problem changing it for us. We were in a corner intentionally so we could hear eachother but if you’re closer to people, noise still wouldnt be a problem (with social distancing nowadays). Garden area was real pretty at night with the lights on. It was just great, even with the higher prices we will be going back many more times.
