Just like every other Palm

The 36 oz double sirloin was an excellent cut although it was a bit overdone for medium rare. The filet was good but lacked that beefy taste. The calamari portion was enormous. The Caesar saladwas tasty. Service was excellent. We enjoyed our experience

Fantastic service and food in a high end steakhouse that doesn't have a big chain vibe and not too stuffy for the kids. Definitely expensive, but so is everything else in Orlando.

I have not been to a Palm restaurant in years so it was nice to try this classic steakhouse once again. After a long day in the parks, it made logistical sense to try this restaurant as it was in the hotel adjacent to ours. We were at Portofino Bay (see review) and the restaurant is within walking distance or... More

We make it a habit to dine here every time we are in Orlando, located in the Hard Rock Hotel! The Palm Steakhouse has a casual but elegant atmosphere and perfect for all types of parties, big or small... the food is top notch and the best steakhouse! A must for us is their chopped salad and hash browns! You... More

Everyone loved their steak, but the seafood was amazing (scallops and lobster bisque were fantastic!) Our waiter was one of the best we have ever had. He was so friendly (but not overly or annoying) and knowledgable. He treated our 14 and 12 year old with the upmost respect which seems to be rare.

I had the iceberg lettuce wedge salad, the sesame crusted tuna, a side dish of sautéed spinach. My companion had the king crab legs. Everything was delicious. Service was great. Neither of us could finish our meals. Oh, and I started out with a vodka martini drink - "Las Vegas Kiss" - it was yummy but maraschino cherries? ew.

On our last night in Orlando, we were looking for a good and memorable experience for dinner. We were not disappointed with The Palm. Beware, the size in their dishes are large and the sides are served family style. We started with wine, which was an excellent and reasonably priced Bordeaux. The bread basket was average. We got the shrimp... More

If one pays the amounts of money they charge at The Palm one expects all to be top of the bill. In all fairness, the in-bone Ribeye was to perfection, however the french fries were sloppy and the service wasn't really great, we had to call various times to get attention. If those 2 points are solved, it would be... More

I have been here several times and recommend eating at the bar for their Happy Hour bar menu. The food there is a good value compared to dining in the main restaurant. The regular menu is good however there are better options for a steakhouse at this price range. Service is fantastic and the bartenders are the best!!
