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. Maybe a bit overpriced for what you get but worth a visit. The wait staff were friendly and prompt without being intrusive. The restaurant is a bit noisy so... read more

We shared the steak and lobster special. We also had the marinated mushrooms and the hashbrowns. Everything was Absolutely Fabulous!! The bread options are amazing, and they give you all of them! The steaks are cooked to perfection - this is their signature menu item. I try to eat here at least once or twice when I am in town.... More

We are in Orlando for a holiday and staying at the sister hotel Loews Pacific and as such are able to visit other universal hotels for dinner. We came here to The Palm restaurant for dinner, in a nutshell overpriced and not very nice. We paid $189.31 for a New York strip ($49.59) and a filet steak ($48.50) and all... More

We have been to this place several times over the last few years and I hate going there because while the service is great, the food is really hit or miss. But my wife wanted to go for the 4 pound lobster special for two so despite my misgivings I went along. Big mistake. First we get seated under a... More

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.
