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

The food and service were both very good. It's mostly Italian cuisine so be prepared for big plates. We ordered lasagna which came with a side salad and bread and couldn't eat it all. The cappuccino was not what I expected but the dessert (cannoli) was good. Prices are very modest which impressed us the most.

So glad you enjoyed your meal at the Palm Tree Grille. We have added some great new items recently like homemade pastas and we have added more seafood dishes. And yes our wine list is the best in the region , over 160 wines available at retail prices, not the normal high restaurant markup many other locations have. Our lounge... More

We had to make a reservation as there were 9 adults and 4 children in our party and we were only offered 5:30 or 9:00. We did have to wait, but were seated rather quickly upon our arrival even with a reservation. The service was just so-so. They were not overly friendly (which is to be expected with 13 people)....

Last minute decision to go to Mt.Dora. Pleasant environment although tables are rather small. Food was good, portions were good as well. A little on the expensive side but overall a pleasant experience.
