We visited last Saturday evening. We were greeted immediately by the hostess and were seated in the corner table we asked for. Our server David, was very knowledgable about the menu items and specials. He suggested a very nice Sauvignon Blanc that was only served by the bottle. It was a reasonable price and we were able to take what... More

Went with 2 friends and we liked it so much, we returned the next day for more of the same! Service is good depending on the server you get... but the best part was that the kitchen let us go 'off menu' on a Saturday night and order a lunch offering even thought they were very busy. We really appreciated... More

We stopped in to visit the Palm Tree Grille during a Taste of Our Town tour of Mount Dora. Our tour guides knew how to introduce us to one of Mount Dora's best food and wine offerings when they brought us to this location. We were there for food and wine tasting and enjoyed great service while the management of... More

The last time we ate there I ordered the special of the night and it was a mess that looked like the last five nights leftovers and didn't taste much better. When we asked for bread our server brought us two small pieces. Maybe it would have been better to order off the menu as we had in the past.... More

Ordered a Caprese Salad for lunch...looked lovely with red and green tomatoes; the bad thing was they weren't heirloom tomatoes so the green were hard as rocks! Also, when including olives with a salad it might be a good idea to not have pits in them. The restaurant itself is beautiful to look at but the service was not that... More

We moved to Mount Dora about a month ago from upstate New York. The Chamber of Commerce gave us a brochure of all the downtown restaurants. We have been trying a new restaurant or two each week and tonight we decided to try Palm Tree Grille. We're so glad we chose Palm Tree Grille because we were out to celebrate... More

So nice of you to take the time and post your positive experience with us! Yes the wine list is the best in the region with over 165 wines at the very best prices. In fact, we sell our wine at the same or lower prices than most wine shops. Our bar is extensive as well with lots of great... More

I can't speak about the service while dining at the restaurant or the quality of the food, but when I called the restaurant over a week ago to schedule a Christmas Dinner Party for my office, I was told that the owner would contact me via e-mail but I never heard back. After calling again (over a week later), I... More

I am heartbroken to hear that you did not get a call regarding your party. Unacceptable that whoever took the call did not let management know and that we did not get back to you. If I can be of service please contact me personally and I will make things right for you. Best regards, Joe More

We ate lunch here on our recent visit to Mt Dora. The menu is limited, but the food is good. We visited here a few years ago and it has changed the decor, but is clean and staff was very friendly.
