I had a steak...beautifully cooked and my wife had the chicken parmagiano which was the size of the plate! Fries and green bean sides were yummy and definitely family sized so we had too much for the two of us! Service was great, our waiter was very helpful and kept us entertained! Pricey but worth it for a treat!

We visited the Palm while staying at the Hard Rock Hotel . I was told the steaks were excellent and i wouldn't be disappointed, well i wasn't . Excellent service and excellent food. We had the 14oz fillet mignon which was cooked to perfection . Would highly recommend a visit to The Palm

My fiance and I ordered calamari, 2 cokes, 2 steaks, and wild mushrooms. The bill total was $170. The cokes came out in tiny little bottles, weird but okay. The calamari came out looking like exactly what it was, which was a little offputting, but it's a nice place so we can deal with it looking like tiny sea creatures.... More

The server was top notch!!! We ordered the 4 pound lobster which was removed from the shell table side (very impressive). The filet topped with blue crab & porcine mushrooms was the most tasty steak I have ever had. It was tender & juicy, cooked perfectly, (medium rare) and the flavor was indescribable, yum. No room for dessert. The prices... More

Visited The Palm whilst staying at Hard Rock a Hotel. The steak was probably the best steak I have ever tasted. First class, I need say no more. Service was impeccable by no means the cheapest but hey you get what you pay for and it was worth every penny.

Visited on our last night as a treat for us all. Convenient as staying in Hard rock hotel. After a bit of research on TA we decided to try it out, my steak was superb (24 oz ribeye) but the rest I'm sorry to was poor. My two daughters Mignon steaks were overdone, as was my Fiancées 16 oz Mignon.... More

Unequivocally, the food and service are excellent here. We made reservations to take advantage of the August lobster special to celebrate our anniversary. They even had a "Happy Anniversary" card on the table for us, but a white tablecloth on a wood and plastic upholstered booth table isn't consistent with a $250 price tag for dinner. The Palm has the... More

We recently ate at the Palm to take advantage of the 5 pound lobster dinner for 2 for the price of the 4 pounder. The lobster was huge and we wound up taking some home and my wife enjoyed lobster salad for lunch the next day. The lobster was prepared very well and the tail and knuckle meat was very... More
