“Excellent steak, very good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The NY strip steak here was close to perfection. Excellent flavor, nice and tender and almost cooked perfectly to medium rare per my request. I started with the oysters on the half shell - very good and fresh. Beware of the house horseradish though - it packs a big punch. Sides with the steak were standard steakhouse stuff done very well. Service was spot-on. Wine list is expensive although not over the top unreasonable like the Morton's of Chicago in Orlando. Highly recommended for a steakhouse in Orlando.

“Delicious Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We both had a special menu that included soup, entre and dessert. We had lobster bisque, filet mingion. The filet was cooked to perfection. This special was only offered for a short time, if they have it when you are there, don't miss it!

“Terrible attitude of the Manager”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

In this otherwise splendid establishment, we had a terrible experience during our last visit on Dec 11. We always had excellent food and service experience at Palm, but this time we encountered very poor service and a Manager who kept blaming our order in order to defend his waiter. Never uttered the word sorry.
Food was good but the incidence ruined the evening.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Had Thanksgiving dinner here and was awesome. Great service and great food! They served over 700 people that night and you never would have known it. Everything came out on time and they have an awesome wine list!
