Nice atmosphere, bland food

We had great service and I loved the atmosphere, but I was very disappointed with my dinner. However my wedge salad was one of the best salads I've ever had. I'm not a huge blue cheese fan, but I do like it in moderation. My server suggested getting the crumbles and dressing on the side and that... read more

Went for Birthday with my wife. We've been here about 6 times, but not in the last 2 yrs or so. Had a drink at the bar first. The bar has that smell you get at college bars, smells like everything is sticky. Table and server were fine. The Caesar and lump crab cocktail were excellent. I had the 15... More

The Concierge from the Loews Portofino Hotel recommended we ate here but I cannot imagine why ;-) What a disaster! Our waiter looked like someone out of Sweeney Todd: sharpening knives in front of our faces and leering in the background. The meals took an eternity to arrive but every steak was incorrectly cooked to our preference which is inconceivable... More

The food was over rated and expensive. Tried the lobster but to be honest I have had beter in MacDonalds! The waiter was pushy with the chat and not happy that we didnt leave a tip but we paid over £300 dollars for 2 courses (there were 3 of us) and a bottle of wine and we had to wait... More

After reading the spotty reviews, I was hesitant to dine here. However, we were staying in the hotel and it was the easiest thing to do. I'm so glad we did! The food was delicious and the service was spot on. I am pretty critical of both food and service and was pleasantly surprised by both; especially since we were... More

I was taken to dinner here as part of group in the private dining room. The staff we quick and efficient, and the food was good. i was trying to be 'good' so went for the fleet mignon which was cooked well and delicious. if you're in the area its worth a visit for a good meal.

Steaks were best ever had! Wonderful atmosphere and very knowledgeable staff. Very pricey bit worth the expense.

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
