We went on opening night, which was busy downstairs. Upstairs dining was quiet and the seabass and cocktails were great. Lobster bisque was creamy and delicious.
The Palms has it all- great exterior, even better interior, delicious food, sweet bar. This is the place to be to have a wonderful evening.
Excellent 'island-style' grilled fish, seafood, and steak. Light, but thoughtfully seasoned and full of flavor. Delicious desserts. Superb service and nice setting.
It's s very new place so there were a few hiccups but not many. The space has a lovely bright openness to it. The staff was nice enough. We ordered apps of tuna and shrimp. They were both very good. The shrimp I would go so far as to say excellent! Entrees we ordered scallops w risotto and new Zealand salmon. The scallops and risotto were very yummy- just the right portion for the richness and the salmon was just good....a tad overdone. To be fair I lived in New Zealand for a time so this may not be fair. I also see someone on here complained their salmon was underdone so sufficed to say, there's inconsistencies. The quinoa paired with it was lovely but overall not super flavorful. Felt like a "healthy" dish. Not that that's bad....just an observation. Dessert bread pudding was excellent and chocolate cheesecake was again, just ok.
Basically, overall it was a good meal. Will we go back? Yes. The prices seem a bit high for what they're presenting but it is Los Gatos afterall. They do need work on their wine list. It's not great. For all the amazing wines in New Zealand and Australia (if they're counting that as Pacific Rim) there are MANY exceptional wines but even the ones they've chosen are meh at best.
We decided to try new restaurant in town. Considering it has just opened, we were pleased with food and service. We were given 2 free appetizers and chose the calamari and veg tempura. Both were good although a little too much jalepenos in the calamari.
Two of us had the branzino which was excellent (although would be nice if they filleted). The choice of a both rice and potato seemed a bit strange..really should be a vegetable. One person had the salmon and one the Korean rib dish and everyone thought the food was good. Also, decent wine by the glass menu. We will go back however it is pricey so not a once a week place!
Service was prompt and very friendly. Food was fantastic!!! Drinks were great. And the ambiance was perfect. For only being open a VERY short time The Palms did very well.
We had their big table in the back and it was really nice delicious food and good service.
Great for just having opened 3 wks ago! Creative pan-Asian fare, local ingredients, excellent service and they have a chef's table for 8 that can be reserved. I had grilled scallops which were done to perfection and everyone loved their dishes. Wine priced such that a bottle is the best deal. Pretty vibrant bar with tables but this didn't interfere with the dining room ambiance. Recommend!
They have only been open a week. My salmon was very underdone as I had asked for medium.
When it came back the third time it was lovely but my quinoa was soupy and the asparagus was extra large in diameter. Dessert on the other hand was excellent! Hopefully they will improve as the ambience is great:-) They did apologize and took my entree off the bill.
Lovely meal, super tasty! Great staff and service.
Entree was very salty and prices were high for the quality of the food
We were seated immediately and served right away. Service was prompt and pleasant, the drinks were great, and the food was delicious. We'll definitely be going back!
I had the salmon, and it was delicious. Others in our party raved about the burger, and the fries were just as good. Our server was attentive and friendly. It was nice that the manager came by several times to see if all was ok and if we needed anything. I will definitely be back.
