“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed at the Radisson Aqua Blu around the corner from here so the location worked out. The service was exceptional and the food was great. The portions were large. I had a Philly Cheesesteak for lunch with fries and my husband had salmon. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch. This was our first time to The Palm.

“Very tasty, very delicious and plenty of food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Nice ambience, nice food, did not have to wait long for the food, 8 people with starters and different drinks but the waiter still did not miss a thing. Very tasty, deliciously prepared food.

“Great fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

The seafood is always fresh and can be cooked up many different ways. They do a great job with the blackened swordfish.

The sides are terrific and huge. My favorites are the creamed spinach and the potatoes au gratin.

A bit pricey but worth the splurge.

“Wow! Exceptional dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had a business dinner here. Great wine list and inventive drinks. I had a refreshing strawberry drink. The bacon wrapped scallops were fantastic for an appetizer, followed by the Monday salad which was awesome. For dinner I ordered the Chilean sea bass topped with a crab cake and shrimp in house sauce and I wanted to take the chef home with me. It was superb! Good bread basket and great carrot cake which was big enough foe 4 people to split. Pricy but worth every penny.

“Consistently Grand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

As always this popular steak and chop house never fails in terms of service and quality. Great lobster for two deal now for 80 and try the 9oz filet and key lime pie. The staff was attentive and prices were what you would expect for a great steak! Located inside the Swissotel and worth every dollar spent!
