What a shock. After coming here many times for late night drinks and the singer, the food was overcooked, undercooked , the wrong meal served, and it took over an hour after the appetizers to get our food. So much anticipation reservations a month ahead. Then. the waiter and manager argued with us that they are right. 0 stars

I have been to this restaurant so many times, it feels like "family" to me when I return. I now live in Vero Beach, so I don't dine in the La Palma very often. My guest, this last visit, remarked that she eats so often at the lunch buffet, she does not really think of dining at La Palma for... More

We went a family of three for Sunday buffet brunch, the salad and food buffet has a variety f cold and hot dishes. An omelette station, a carving station. The bill at the end was $160!. Too expensive for a Sunday brunch.

We visited La Palma in Coral Gables for New Year's Eve. Overall, it was a very nice evening. The wait staff was attentive, accommodating, and patient. The wine list was decent with fair prices. The food was good, but not as good as I expected for the price - which may have been the result of a fixed menu on... More

This is my 2nd time at La Palma. First time I has the buffet which was amazing for only 13.95. 2nd time we ordered sea bass and ossobuco. The sea bass was very good but the ossobuco was poetry dissolving in your mouth. Our waiter Eduardo could not have been more attentive and accommodating. On a not-so-hot day, I suggest... More

I recently hosted my baby shower at La Palma Ristorante, and I was blown away by not only the food but by the absolutely excellent service. All my guests have been raving about how extremely polite and "on top of the things" all the waiters were, how excellent the buffet was and how picturesque the venue was. The price was... More

La Palma was the brightest spot in an otherwise disappointing visit to Coral Gables. We arrived at the restaurant shortly before they were opening, and they graciously invited us to sit at a table and order drinks and peruse the menu while they finished preparing to open. Our food was heavenly. I had homemade tortelloni stuffed with spinach and ricotta... More
