“Perfectly cooked, best quality, sublime taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

The Palm makes and serves the best steaks and lamb chops . There are so many steak restaurants to choose from but number one for quality of the meat and perfection in preparation is still The Palm. The sides are also amazing from the onion rings to the hash browns. We were 8 people and each and every steak whether filet mignonette or sirloin was perfect. We also ordered lamb chops for everyone to share and they melted in our mouths. We had a wonderful dinner in one of our old favorite restaurants that has never let us down. We left feeling satisfied knowing that we would definitely return again when we had have the chance.

“Disappointed in this restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We asked the hotel for recommendations for a late dinner because we had to pick up some friends flying into Ft Lauderdale that evening. They mentioned The Palm, and since we had always enjoyed The Palm in Charlotte, we decided to head up A1A to Ft Lauderdale and eat there. When we walked in, we were greeted with a half-empty restaurant and the question that always befuddles me, "Do you have reservations?" -- like, "Why do you care? You are half empty!" But we were shown to a nice booth, had a great glass of wine and finally ordered. My wife ordered stuffed shrimp that she said were wonderful. They had a swordfish special and I ordered that, blackened. Now let me tell you that there is a big difference between blackened and burnt. Apparently that night's chef didn't know that. It wasn't that the swordfish was burnt, just the peppers that they had blackened the swordfish with. Small point but big on the taste difference. Since we were becoming short on time, I asked for some drawn butter to moisten the meat and overcome the burnt taste. That helped; but I was still quite disappointed. When you consider that our meal for the two of us was $180, I felt this food just didn't justify that price.

“Great for Prime Rib”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Good service & large portions are the hallmark of this established restaurant serving superb Prime Rib amongst other dishes. A sweater is needed to keep one warm. Massive portion of meat which is so tasty !
