Tampa >Palm Restaurant, Tampa
High priced average food. Dining on the patio is like eating in a parking lot. Food was average at well-above-average-prices. Melon in appetizer was hard and unsweet, chopped salad contained tomatoes with bad spots, onion cores and filet mignon was average. I'm sorry, but $30+ is too much to pay for a 10-oz piece of steak. Mark-up on basic cabernet sauvignon was more than 100%. Not good value.
One great steakhouse. The best steak in Tampa. Paul, our server was terrific. He made the evening perfect for our group. Not the traditional chain-type service that I have received in other steakhouses. We will certainly return to the Palm for our future gatherings.
Local Favorite. The Palm is becoming the popular choice for business professionals. I previously took my clients to the restaurant next door but if you are wanting to impress your guests, try the Palm. It does tend to get a bit loud during the lunch hour but the food is excellent (try the crabcakes). Service is outstanding.
Perfect!. We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday at the Palm last weekend. We celebrated along with 35 of our family and friends in a private room. We both work for pharmaceutical companies and have done events in the past with Fleming's and Shula's but I must say, "The Palm does it better". It could not have been more perfect. Unlike some of the other places we've dined, we had personal attention from the moment we walked in. The manager greeted us and made us feel welcome. Our waiters were very charming and right there when we needed them. The food did me in. My steak was perfect! The lobster was out of this world. I don't know why we hadn't been to the Palm sooner, but we will make up for it in the future!
Tampa needed this place. Definitely the place to "see and be seen." Food was great. Kudos to the Management for making everyone feel special. The professional staff showed us that they were genuinely interested in developing a loyal local clientele. I plan to be included.
