Terrible dinning experience, terrible service, terrible food

Server was conceded and condescending and he kept pushing drinks on us even though we do not drink and had told him we did not want drinks. After very long wait food arrived. Both our meals were bland and over cooked. Food is overpriced. Typical tourist trap. To top it off, after experience we... read more

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B we would be staying at. We went to the website, checked some reviews, and made our reservations about a month in advance. Upon our arrival, we were informed that it was a pre-set menu for Valentine's Day. And being Valentine's Day, obviously no where else had any tables available. There was no mention... More

Went for our 2nd anniversary. The waitress was friendly, the atmosphere was quiet and cozy, sitting by the large windows it felt al fresco. I cook and am therefore picky, because if I eat out I want it to be as good as I can make it, and this was better! Filet mignon cooked PERFECTLY with great flavor and edamame,... More

Great and varied menu, Wonderful wine list. Went there to celebrate a birthday and we were pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious and prepared just right. Our waitress was friendly and kind but a little off that night. We had to ask for bread and remind her about drink orders. The bar was filled with a private gathering but the restaurant... More

We brought our three kids aged 10, 9, 5 year olds and it was very child friendly w kid menus. Adults enjoyed fabulous and lengthy wine/drink selection. Osso bucco was crazy good. Ahi tuna was very much enjoyed and also stuffed pork chop. Only surprise was the quality of the flatware...? Huh? Is this IHOP? Otherwise service (Linda!) fabulous. Servers... More

We went there on a very rainy day during our vacation in Florida and it was not very busy. We arrived at around 5:15 PM and were given the "Happy Hour" menu (Happy Hour was until 6PM). We ordered shortly before 5:30 PM but found out when we received the check that we were charged the regular prices. When we... More

I'll first start by saying that you definitely need to make a reservation. Also, if you are on a time crunch, this place is not for you. You will sit and wait for service, and for your drinks, appetizers, salads, and meal. There is time in between each part of the meal and I don't think it is intentional--they run... More

We had a nice lunch Thursday at Palm Tree Grille. Everyone was friendly. Our waitress Nicole was very accommodating and professional. The ambiance was quiet and classy. Loved the twinkling Christmas lights and garland, and decorative touches on the tables. Between my BF and myself, we ordered whiskey, beer, and hot tea (I got the tea) for beverages. Appetizers were... More
