Went to the restaurant with a friend who was visiting from Houston. The prime rib I had was outstandingt, but way too much for me to eat. She had the veal and also stated it was also outstanding. The coctails, side car for me and ultimate margarita for her were equally outstanding. As always the Palm waiters are outstanding in... More

We are used to eating at the Miami location, but Orlando is far better. The breaded veal chop was 'knockout' .. meaty and tasty. Service was alot slower than it should have been, but the lady maitre d' took care of us.

This is a true steak restaurant, they really know how to cook one! Arrived on time and was seated immediately. Very friendly service. We were topped with water immediately and given menus to peruse. Never felt rushed or pressured. The lady who was taking care of us was so nice, I asked one question before we ordered and she immediately... More

I have been going to The Palm restaurants for some 30 years. Always consistent. The menu offers a variety of items, but the steak and lobster are their staples.

Underwhelming and very pricey. Crab cake appetizer was OK, but not great. My Filet was tender, but tasteless. Sauteed spinach and sauteed mushrooms were good, but the fries were soggy. Carrot cake was delicious. With a moderately priced bottle of wine (<$80), dinner was well north of $100 per person.

The evening was wonderful. The tuna appetizer was delicious and a great way to start the meal. We enjoyed the romaine and tomato salad. The entrees were all excellent- the veal parmigiana was my favorite, then the filet and sea bass. The blackened prime rib was delicious. We live on the north side of town; however, the quality of food... More

Never had an opportunity to dine at a Palm Restaurant, actually never heard of them. Higher end restaurant in several major cities. In researching our trip I found out about a 4lb Lobster dinner for two at $99.00. Located in the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Studios this place specializes in Steak and Lobster, and it was outstanding. For 10.00... More
