Well. The asparagus was mushy and burned. The mushrooms were tasteless. But the disappointing part was the steak. When a customer returns a steak almost in full and the waiters don't concern themselves with why. That says it all. One out of five. For edible....More

Good food and plenty of it. However, this is a very noisy restaurant, so I don't recommend if you are there for a lot of conversation.

Service from when you arrive is excellent. Food, as you'd expect from a Palm restaurant, is outstanding! I've been to three of these now - all fantastic.
