    Went for brunch as a special treat. Beautiful historic property, I had the salmon, it was delicious. The restaurant was quiet although there were quite a few people eating. There were two outside patio dining areas, an attached bar area and a smoking room (hadn't seen that before). Service was great, so glad we tried it.

    We met early for drinks - the guitarist in the cocktail lounge was TALENTED! Service was outstanding. Seated quickly, met our waiter immediately, starters, wine, entres, desert all timely, perfectly cooked and presented. Wonderful evening out for our family. The grounds provided a beautiful backdrop for an after meal stroll. What are you waiting for? GO!

    Came to the Royal Palms for our anniversary and it didn’t disappoint! As a bicoastal couple and consummate foodies we’re generally hard to please! We kept coming back to this place. Our entrees of salmon and lamb were world class and surprised us completely! Service was outstanding as well. Definitely exceeded our expectations for a hotel based location! We will definitely be back!

    Our server, was wonderful and attentive. I did have to send my first drink back, Flora Collins, as it just wasn’t pleasant although I did see others enjoy it. I hate sending anything back but just did not enjoy it. The Italian Paloma was my next choice and was excellent. The Oaxaca Old Fashioned was used with a high end Mezcal but it lacked complexity for the price. The Pork Belly was unimpressive and lacked flavor. The Baby Green salad was over powered by the sherry vinaigrette which was super vinegary and impossible to enjoy. Order dressing on the side is my suggestion. The ribeye had better flavor however didn’t feel it was worthy of the price. Chocolate truffle dessert was pretty good. While the restaurant is lovely, the dining experience when it came to consumption did not meet our expectations.

    Service was fabulous - we were not rushed and had a lovely brunch. Love that you can order off a menu versus a buffet which is one reason I chose the Royal Palms! The other is the beautiful setting, great service and fabulous food! My dad said it was the best huevos rancheros he has ever had (and he has had a few!!!)

    We celebrated our anniversary and rose petals were covering out table which was lovely. The setting was peaceful and romantic. We both ordered the vegan pasta with meatballs, which were supposed to be comprised of sweet potatoes and quinoa. There was barely any sweet potato, they weren’t cooked through and did not taste good. Would not order it this again.

    Excellent ambiance in an old world luxury resort. Friendly staff. Good drink menu. Food was pretty underseasoned and the potatoes were frozen, not scratch made. Not terrible though, they have a nice variety of items and we'll return.

    My girls and I ordered the Burrata and Tuna Crudo for appetizers and they were very delicious. For the main entree, I had the ribeye steak which was also delicious. My sister had the short rib and she really liked it. The meat was tender and juicy. Oh, the best part is the dessert! We ordered the Crema Catalana (I believe that’s the name) and it was amazing. It wasn’t too sweet which was perfect for me. I’d order it again. We also had the bread pudding and lemon tart which were also amazing. The place is just beautiful and stunning, especially at night when the lights are on in the patio. The main entrance makes you feel like you’re in a European country. I would also like to say thanks to our server, Jeff. Very nice and friendly guy. He checked on us in a timely manner and he also made recommendations of what to order since it was our first time there. The foods he suggested didn’t disappoint us. Thanks, Jeff!

    We took our friends to TJ's to celebrate a birthday and home purchase. A gorgeous indoor table was given to us upon asking. Drinks on the patio before dinner and the table was still ours! Very considerate! A leisurely scrumptious dinner and Complimentary Mandarin Flan for the birthday girl concluded our elegant dining experience. Our server seemed like family to us..so easy going and always attentive but not hovering. Thank you!!

    Enjoyed our meal at TJ’s. The Copper state reserve tenderloin steak was cooked to perfection and the clams & house sausage pasta was almost great but too rich for my taste. I know that cream is used a fair amount in Northern Italian recipes but without being disrespectful all palates are personal; to my tastebuds combining spaghetti and cream is sacrilegious! My take on the clam dish, have a jus consisting of olive oil, white wine,clam juice maybe some lemon. And a bit more punch - chili flakes- in the sausage and/or sauce would have been great. Excellent glass of rose - l forget the name but it’s from Aix-en-Provence. Highly recommend.

    Have not been here in a couple of years and the “old” experience of fine dining has changed. Much more casual with expensive pricing - a $ Cesar salad with half a cup of lettuce, $$ fish was totally dried out. Just no longer one of our special occasion “go to’s” any more, and food quality not worth the price.
