“As Expected...which is Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

As expected is in no way a bad thing. It just means you have met my expectations and that is fabulous. I'm not easy to please.
Went for a special lunch with my hubby. Special in that we are both very busy and rarely take the time to lunch together. Time is money.
Good food, atmosphere and service. This is a lovely place to sink into to a nice booth and relax for a bit.
Eating out should be an "event" of some sort.
Thank You for making our lunch a little special event!

“Superior quality lunch experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Excellent food, elegant interiors (although I do not like the dark table cloth), great service and very reasonable pricing. This is a great place to bring a date or your wife. If you want to get away from the factory style chain restaurants , like CPK or Cheesecake, etc.. then The Palms is the place to enjoy a quality lunch. Did not try it for dinner yet, but will soon.

“Incredible food impeccable service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Comfortable, cozy yet elegant. Just came from a group dinner for eight. The service was fantastic. Our plates all came at the same time- nothing overcooked or cold, beautifully presented. And delicious! Our table had the rack of lamb, surf and turf special, sea bass and fish special. It was all so very good.

“Fine Dining & Spirits- The Palms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The Palms is a wonderful addition to the North Fresno dining experience. The atmosphere lends a warm greeting to all the guests. Food, spirits, smiling servers and fantastic chef, will invite you to come back time and again. The appetizers are a great way to start your meal in anticipation for a well prepared lunch or dinner & desert which are sure to please.
