We had group of 12 to celebrate a birthday and enjoy the summer lobster special. After no less than 3 calls to The Palm, we understood the Thursday night deal was 5 lb lobster for 2 for $99. But when we arrived the story changed. We got off to a rough start and found even the quoted web page lacking in detail on the deal. After some drama the owner/manager did make good on the deal. Dinner was very good. It came with salad and a side and our waiter did great job for such a large group....mostly....Chopped salad was incredible and does not need any dressing. but one of our diners waited forever for hers. Weird. Bread selections wide and varied. Lobsters were huge and additional staff came around to help get the meat out of shell. Sides were generous. Spinach in garlic oil was wonderful. The asparagus was a bit too salty. Then we enjoyed a dessert tray. Wow. Chocolate layer cake and carrot cake were the hottest items. So overall we did enjoy dinner but The Palm need to get their summer special clarified on line and in person. Note — nothing seems to be written down on this special with specifics on weight and cost of these lobster dinners.

Had a wonderful dinner at the Palm for our Anniversary. Our server, Chrissy was spot on with service, my husband was late arriving for our reservation and she made me feel very comfortable while I waited . She was quick, accurate and anticipated our needs without being obtrusive.The food was fabulous. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his veal parmigiana and the special lobster tail was to die for. Chalk up another great meal for the Palm. We will certainly return.

The Palm Restaurant catered a surprise birthday party for my partner on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant is normally closed at this time and the party for 50+ people was held in a private room in the back. Every person commented how wonderful was the food. Several people commented on how helpful was the wait staff. A few of the invitees could not eat from the menu and were able to order other food that met their requirements. Barbara, the Sales Manager, was extremely helpful and arranged for delivery of the centerpieces. She made sure everything ran smoothly. My partner couldn’t stop commenting on how great was the party and that it was held at one of her favorite restaurants.
