Good service and food

I have been to other Palm restaurants (Vegas and Chicago) and this location was good, but not without a few bumps in the road. The quality of the food is great, but we had to send my steak back because it wasn't really hot and our salmon was raw in the middle. Nevertheless, the manager and waiter... read more

Great steak house. Pricey, but you know that going in. We all had the filet. Cooked perfect. Everything fresh and decent portions. Good ambience as well. Recommend if you've got the coin.

INTRO: I am a steak lover. I am a loyal fan of the River Palm in NJ bit also like Ruth's Chris. Morton's, and Shula's . I am no stranger to the NY Strip and know quality service. With that being said..........The Palm is a very loud, fun, high energy steakhouse. This location has no dress code unlike the rest... More

Although I have had better steaks at a few places, The Palm is still one of my favorite restaurants. The service here is always exceptional, everyone knows exactly what they are doing, really very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed, not stuffy, and they offer a bigger variety of choices than some "steak only" places. Even though this location is... More

food was great, appetizers, salads, steaks etc....service was reasonably ok given how busy the place was, but what made the dinner a real ordeal was the noise level

Steaks and atmosphere are always great and consistent! A nice place but not so stuffy I wouldn't bring my kids, who are very well behaved in restaurants, overall. Haven't had anything I don't like here....

OK ok, its a chain that's known for steaks and service, nothing exciting, just consistently good meals. I've probably eaten at a half dozen locations throughout the years and always have fish. This Orlando visit, I tried the famous chicken parm, which I never order myself, but always beg tastes of others at various restaurants. It was a bit of... More

The 36 oz double sirloin was an excellent cut although it was a bit overdone for medium rare. The filet was good but lacked that beefy taste. The calamari portion was enormous. The Caesar saladwas tasty. Service was excellent. We enjoyed our experience

Fantastic service and food in a high end steakhouse that doesn't have a big chain vibe and not too stuffy for the kids. Definitely expensive, but so is everything else in Orlando.
