Steak was overcooked so they took it off the bill. Water glasses were left empty and waiter was too busy to check quality of steak after delivery. Not worth the money.

Apps were good. But wife’s steak was cold and over cooked. Her sauce was frigid.
The vegetables were barely steamed and had no flavor.
Wine was overpriced.
Lobster was great. Crabmeat was great.
Desserts were pretty good.

We ordered a lot of food but the table we got was way too small while the restaurant had so many empty tables that we could have used. I don’t know why they stick people like us at such a small table. I was not happy about that.

I’m so glad he palm updated their menu. It definitely needed it. What I don’t understand is why they don’t have a few good vegetarian options with so many vegetarians out there now.
Other than that I love the ambiance, service and food. It’s a treat going there.

Scrumptious lobster well served and eating it outdoors made it more desirable. We got away from the cold and loud interior.

My daughter and I were celebrating our birthdays together. Outstanding cocktails, dinner and dessert. We split the lobster special and added steaks to order. Our server was meticulous and attentive. Chic ambiance and vibe. Thank you for a fun evening.

We love the lobster special at the Palm. Sometimes the service is great, and sometimes it's not. This time the service was terrible.

The palm is a classy,traditional restaurant. The recent menu changes are an improvement. The salmon Caesar is wonderful. But The biggest issue is there are NO vegetarian options. Seriously put a few veggie items in the menu. A gourmet veggie burger, a nice pasta dish. They need to get with the times.
Also music is always too loud lately.

Overall nice meal. Food was fantastic. Service was good but we felt a bit rushed to move on to each next course during our dinner. Strange as the place was less than half full. The Palm is pricey 300 bucks for 2 so we were hoping to enjoy our special occasion dinner conversation at our own pace and savor the experience.

My experience was nice, it was just a shock how people act when you ask them to split the checks. Maybe they can ask ahead of time how you would like to receive the bill.

Been there once before, but had to go back. The food is amazing. I ordered the filet mignon again, cause every bite of it melts in your mouth, it’s so tender. Also ordered the bacon appetizer again & my daughter tried it for the first time & was amazed of how delicious it is. Will go back again when I want a delicious tasty great steak. 2 thumbs up!!

It's June lobster season at The Palm and their lobster dinner for two was simply amazing - for us, warm bread and butter to accompany bowls of creamy lobster bisque followed by a 4 pound lobster to share, plus their amazing asparagus fritti. We had enough lobster left over to bring home and make our own sinful lobster mac and cheese, which was almost as delicious as the first meal (but it took awhile to make!) We highly, highly recommend The Palm and wish we had one of their restaurants in the Palm Springs area!
