Orchids at Palm Court is a dining experience too grand to miss. The service and food are the best in the city, and the rich art deco surroundings are the best anywhere. Orchids at Palm Court cannot be topped for marking those special occasions.

I have been there many times over the years. The food, service, and atmosphere are second to none. It is also one of the best examples of Art Deco Architecture you will find in the Country.

I'm sure it changes regularly, so even if I were to look that up for you, it would likely be different by the time you went. Best option would be to call them, as they are very responsive.

While we were there, the patrons mostly wore business casual. There were many tables with the diners in suits and more upscale wear. Therefore, you would be comfortable in either depending on your taste and the occasion.
