We recently ate at the Palm to take advantage of the 5 pound lobster dinner for 2 for the price of the 4 pounder. The lobster was huge and we wound up taking some home and my wife enjoyed lobster salad for lunch the next day. The lobster was prepared very well and the tail and knuckle meat was very... More

First we had baked clams which... More

We visited The Palm whilst staying at the Hard Rock and were very impressed. The food was amazing, fine dining but with good sized portions particularly the steak which was amazing. Apart from the delicious food I must say the service we received at this restaurant was outstanding from the first person who greeted us to the young man who... More

Elegance in a laid back space, spectacular food, uncompromising service-just plain fantastic. Lamb was the best, lobster scrumptious and the potatoes au gratin should not be missed-they have a Gascon Malbec which is reasonable and delicious, this place is a gem, even though it is in a resort hotel.

Although it is expensive, the food was amazing. We were celebrating my son's 16th Birthday and it was a very fun experience. The filet mignon was superb and the Brussels Sprout a nice surprise !!!

Took a break from Universal to have a birthday dinner for my husband. Totally disappointed. First time at a Palm but have always wanted to try one. Both steaks overcooked, mine enough to send it back. Didn't get much apology- expect to be treated like the customer is right either way at a place like this. Did not like the... More

My husband and I needed a little splurge/escape from the mania of the parks so we chose The Palm not knowing what to expect. We had drinks at the bar first where the staff was fun and gave us excellent service and drinks. Then we were brought to the dining room and served by Stacye. She made great recommendations, most...

We visited this restaurant on our first night after a day of terrible airplane food! Having been to a Palm before in Denver we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. the 16oz bone in fillet was great.

I'm going to tell you now it's going to cost you a pretty penny regardless. the food was outstanding. Our server Gabe was great and knowledgeable with recommendations. Got the lobster special with filet and split it between the two of us. Can't beat it. Has a nice bar when you come in but take the time to sit and... More

The food was incredible, but the experience was ruined by the slow inattentive service. I have had better service at McDonalds. We finished a basket of bread before the server ever took our order. He passed our table to go talk to people at another table that he wasn't even waiting on. A table next to us got tired of... More
