Worth the trip

Best meal of the trip. Service was excellent and from the bread to the main the food was superb. Fillet steak cooked to perfection as was the veal chop special. Wine list is good if somewhat eyewatering in price!

Our family has always loved The Palm. We were sad when they closed the Tampa location but visit the Orlando location when we can. The food and service last night was as good as always. Our steak was cooked to perfection and the lobster was also delicious. We enjoyed our soups, salads and sides. Then took a bag of donuts... More

This is a regular stop for me in Orlando. Located at the Hard Rock Hotel, it's convenient and has free valet parking. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Waitstaff is very professional, well trained and knowledgeable. Steaks are top quality.

The only mistake I made was thinking this place would mirror my trips to the Palm in E. Hampton, NY. -- wrong-- I remember the waiters being a lot more intuitive, meaning if I was my waiter last night, I would have asked, "Is that annoying laugh coming from the table next to you bothersome? If so, it would be... More

We make it a point to stop in for dinner each time we come to universal studios and we have never been dissatisfied. The service, food, and environment are top notch.

We ate at The Palm in the Hard Rock Hotel for Christmas dinner. The place was packed with diners celebrating the holiday season. All 5 of us in our party had a filet which melted in your mouth. We ordered several sides and it was enough to feed the entire table. We tried the fresh green beans in garlic and... More

We had a great meal at the Palm in the Hard Rock Hotel on our recent visit to Universal. Our waiter Michael was excellent, the steaks were cooked perfectly and all the sides were huge and delicious. It is worth the expense
