I was happy to get Alfredo for our waiter as another reviewer mentioned him by name. The reason for the trip, was that we were celebrating our daughter's honor roll grade. The food is outstanding. When Alfredo brought the Congratulations card at the top of the meal I thought that was going to be it. No, what came next, made... More

Really nice it was elegant fine dining with out the snob attitude. We enjoyed every minute our server Alfredo was accomadating, we shared a meal (not cheap just not ready to eat a 18 oz steak by myself) and never felt like he slighted us because the tab (tip) would be less, and trust me that does happen. The table... More

We were a group of 14, so I would expect a few slip-ups, but this was the worst service that I remember in any restaurant in years. The good - salads were good. There was only one waitress for this large group and she was clearly overwhelmed. The drinks were just randomly set on the table and we had to... More

I liked dining at the other onsite hotels better than dining here. However, if you are tired, hungry, and staying at the Hard Rock Hotel this is a serviceable place to eat. However, I wouldn't drive in to eat here.

Had a meal in the bar area of The Palm that was outstanding! Wine list was superb. Shared a Caprese salad which was perfect, Prime Rib cooked to perfection, and ordered the 3 cheese potatoes and brussel sprouts. Probably wouldn't order the brussel sprouts again - could have been roasted more for better crunchy texture. Overall a terrific meal!

I ordered a beer from the bar and asked to have it seperated from my bill to pay for with cash. At the... More

A hidden gem inside the Hard Rock hotel, this small New York chain restaurant used to have a location in Tampa but closed, so it was good to discover that a location is still available. Clean, friendly and delicious for every course. Greeted with a smile, felt welcome and left feeling well wined and dined.

I have eaten at various Palm Restaurants across the country and have been a member of their 837 club for years. This has always served us well as every year my husband gets a certificate for a free 3 lb lobster on his birthday (an avg $75-80 value). And we genuinely love Palms. However, the one in Orlando has issues... More
