“Very good, but a little loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Every year a group of us go down to Atlantic City for golf for 3 days and on Saturday nights we choose a steak house to dine. Well, this was our first year choosing "the Palm". We were very satisfied with the food and the service. The only issue we had was that the room was very loud. We were going to get a private room, but they were all booked. I definitely recommend making a reservation at least 2 weeks in advance, especially if you have a larger group and would prefer a private room. Everything came out and was cooked to perfection. One part of our group ordered the 32 oz. strip(I think) they did share it, and the server was carving it on the table, because 3 people were sharing it. Well, she did drop a piece on the floor. She says that it never happened to her before and we could see she was very flustered, but she did maintain a professional and courteous attitude. What she did was bring out another 14 ounce steak for the dropped piece. Which was a fantastic solution to the small issue. I am not sure, but a think her name was Jaime. I know when we go back to this restaurant, I would definitely want her to be our server.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

First of all the service was excellent. The food was excellent. We had as an entrée scallops with bacon and the shrimp with a mustard sauce. Wow! This had our taste buds looking forward to the meal. The salmon was excellent. The wine was not too expensive. The restaurant was a little pricey but worth every penny.

“Do you want a Great Meal?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you want a great meal in a fun environment, visit the Palm in Atlantic City. It's located in the Quarter District of the Tropicana. The Palm menu is standard throughout the chain but what differentiates this Palm from many others is the warmth of the front desk people and the cadre of very talented waitstaff. The food is simply great - well prepared, herculean portions and you never feel rushed. It is a see and be seen restaurant so don't dress like a schlepper. If you need help with that word, e-mail me.

“A reservation is worthless!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Decided to celebrate a friends husband's special birthday at The Palm, his favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. We were able to secure a reservation for 4 people at 8:15pm on a Saturday night. Upon arriving on time we were told that they were running a little behind and that we would be seated in 15 minutes. We repeatedly checked in at the desk and were told that it would be a few more minutes. At 9:30 and totally disgusted we sat at the bar and ordered dinner. This is not what we wanted to do nor did we think and hour and fifteen minute wait was acceptable. As a courtesy we told the host that we were going to eat at the bar and once again ...no apology and we were told again our table would be ready soon. Are you kidding me? This was outrageous and absolutely unacceptable. We have never been treated so badly by this or any restaurant ever...we would never go back and would not recommend it. Can't wait to tell everyone we know about this awful experience. And we waited for what? To never be seated at a table?
This aside, the crab cakes were all filler and not lump crab, salads were soggy as if they were made earlier in the day, veal parmigiana was adequate. To add insult to injury we found the waitress service in the bar to be slow and inattentive.
There was never an apology, or "we are sorry!" I found this totally unacceptable for this level of restaurant.

“Great dinning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a group dinner at the Palm last night. All seven of us enjoyed the meal and service.
The Waite staff was very attentive on the food and wine service. Our appitizers and entrees all came out in a timely manner.
The steaks and chops were delicious. The wine list has many good choices.
We requested a "quiet" table, and they provided a table in the corner.
The Palm offered free valet parking.
