Obviously The Palm has top notch, delicious food no matter what location you eat at, but The Palm in Bay Harbor had the best service from any of the locations that I've visited. When I visited with my family last week, our waiter, Fidel, was great from start to finish. Not only did he suggest options from the menu, but... More

One of the saddest days, culinary wise, was when The Palm closed there Coral Gables location. Though it takes us the better part of an hour to get there from the house, we make the trip a few times a year. We are never disappointed. Service, food always excellent.

Of ALL the upscale steak houses I've been to ... NO ONE beats The Palm. Last night was another fabulous dining experience. The first treat was the Miami Spice menu. A choice of salad, entree, side, AND dessert ... for $39. Our server, Tommy, greeted us with his usually welcoming smile and reviewed all of the evening's specials. I started... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Palm. We had an early reservation and they have us a table with plenty of room for our infant's stroller. Food was excellent and consistent with other Palm restaurants. Service was attentive and friendly without being overwhelming.

Great restaurant, lobster a speciality, great steak seemed very popular with the locals. Looked full of regular customers. Expensive but a good evening, booking a must.

Food was very solid and the Waiter was very, very good (especially on Xmas Day). Crab Cakes were the BEST that I've had anywhere.

The service is always excellent, but our dinner Saturday evening was just average. The sides were not as good as usual (potatoes au gratin gloppy and bland, creamed spinach tasteless, etc.), and the steaks served to my sister and myself were NOT filets from the center tenderloin. They had a ribbon of fat running through them and were obviously a... More

The Palm is a profesional restaurant. Served by pros, cooking by pros, bar atended by pros. An "all pro establishment". I live in Buenos Aires, and visit The Palm every time I'm around the Bal Harbour área. If you have the good luck to visit it, insist on their seafood. At the bar, insist on the martinis. I visit the... More

August 31, 2013, this restaurant offered their lobster special. Our table of six sat down to what we thought would be an enjoyable dinner. To the contrary, the lobsters which were served were slimy and undercooked. Needless to say, these dinners went uneaten. Additionally, as we were leaving, we heard from four diners who were actually forced to leave on... More
