Rating how the food taste at a restaurant is such a hard thing to do as everyone has their own taste and likes but the food here is very good.

Went to this restaurant last week when on holiday in Orlando. My husband and I are allergic to cheese which seemed to throw a spanner in the works. I ordered calamari to start but turns out the mozarrella sticks are fried in the same oil so after waiting 15 minutes the server explained they couldn't provide the dish. My husband... More

The Palm came highly recommended and from the moment we walked in - wow what a classy operation! Waiters that know just the right thing to say.. Steaks that melt in your mouth & side orders of crunchy green beans with pine nuts and deep fried asparagus or creamy potatoes au gratin. Chicken Parmesan with a side order of a... More

We wanted to try this restaurant after seeing the advertisments through Hard Rock Hotel. I called to make a reservation and informed that it was full and within 20 seconds of making that call my husband had confirmed a table on line! The food I had was lovely but my husband's calamari had a half eaten chip in it which... More

The Palm is in fact a chain, with locations in NYC and Philadelphia. We knew exactly what to expect when we visited and we continue to be impressed with the restaurant. Our server, Taylor, was EXCELLENT. Always available and cordial. The food was worth the price ($850 bill for 8 of us) and we were even considering going back a... More

We were recommended here as a spot for a more upscale business dinner. It was disappointing with a less than sophisticated feel, more a family steak restaurant. Over priced for what it is. I'd not choose it again.

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.

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
