    One of my favorite places! Got the street tacos and they were good and a wedge salad for dinner which was moldy and slimy in the middle. I showed it to the waitress and she just said “oh”. The major issue besides the slime on the salad was that we had one waiter take our order, another deliver it, another bring our drinks, another drop the check and yet another pick up the check. Nobody took overall responsibility for the table. Hence just the “oh” when I showed her the salad. She really couldn’t have cared less. Too bad as we come here weekly after church and love the ambiance.

    Food was terrible for all of us. My burger was tepid, bland gray meat, short ribs were stringy & chewy, sea bass was dry over starchy noodles. Ambiance was nice (outside table), service was ok, but awful awful food made it a not-great experience. So disappointed!! 😥

    Korean ribs were too tough to even cut with a steak nife, sent back to kitchen and switched to salmon, which was not really blackened. In a party of five no one really had anything good except for the desserts, which were really good. Do not plan to go back again.

    Have always loved this restaurant both for its atmosphere and food. However this time around we were disappointed with the service and lack of draft beer. Our server tried his best, but it was obvious that they were short staffed and told us the draft beer at the bar was broken.

    The Palms has the most gorgeous outdoor seating. Our server was polite but in general they're very much under-staffed. I have no doubt that were it possible, our server would have checked in with us more often. The was is a solid okay - you get the feeling that not much is made from scratch but I can't verify that. In any case - Palms is a good place for brunch for the outdoor patio alone.

    The food quality was not good. We order Asian salad and Cesar salad with chicken and the chicken was too dry in both, the dressing is the one you buy in the supermarket. The Calamari was chewy and the Kalbi ribs meat was hard. The service is horrible, our waiter forgot to bring some drinks we order since the beginning. The place is so nice that is so unfortunate that the food and service is so terrible. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

    If you come to celebrate an event (like an anniversary) that you specify in OpenTable, the hostess may know. However, the waitress/waiter may not get the message so when it is time for dessert that is decorated indicating an anniversary that you see photos on the internet. I had to point that out to our waitress and she told us she didn't know. We were OK without it, however, she was able to bring us another dessert plate with "Happy Anniversary" writing on it. The food service was quick. From drinks, appetizers, and the main course, there wasn't a long wait. The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent - Crispy on the outside on top of udon noodle soup. A bit pricey but yummy. The best time to come is Thursday nights when there is a live band playing outside at the front of the restaurant. Outdoor seating is great but it can get a little chilly and at the time there were not enough propane tanks to fire up the heaters. So, be prepared to have a jacket in hand. Overall, the ambiance makes this place a great date night, with live music and outdoor seating.

    Nice outdoor dining with a non gourmet but tasty menu. While the outdoor setting is very nice and sheltered from the sun and wind, the tables with no tablecloth and ambiance were average. The service was quick but also average with no presentation of the menu. It could be made to look a little more pleasant.

    No beer on tap, apparently down for 2 months. One canned IPA available and the then the Buds, Pacifico, Stella and other non-craft brews they normally have available. A couple main dishes weren't available. Order the sea bass with udon noodles. Celery made up the main vegetable. No sure how expected to eat, but requested chop sticks which worked well. Sauce was very sweet. Wife had the fish tacos, with broiled fish instead of the normal deep fry. So, so... Service wasn't super attentive. Would have had another Fort Point IPA can, but was not offered. Log time to get a check at the end of meal. Don't think I'm returning.

    So disappointing to have soooooo many aggressive fly's and yellow jackets. Pretty much ruined the experience sorry to say. I go to the Palms at least every two weeks and this is the first time we had to continuously have our hands waving over our food to keep the fly's and yellow jacket from landing on our food. Waitress and food were excellent.

    Never got to the drinks. Was anniversary and waited an additional 15 mins for table top that we never got. They overextended themselves cause they put us around the corner. Last table basically. Waited another 10 mins before leaving. As we left a waiter asked us if we were good as he was laughing.

    We made a reservation for our anniversary. The sushimi appetizer was a mess and difficult to eat. The entrees were no better. The risotto was a clump of rice with over salted scallops. The sea bass was another mess and bland. The staff did not even acknowledge our discontent with the food even after sending it back. We were charged full price which was too high for for what was offered. Eat somewhere else please!!!

    Once we were waited on the service was very good. Initially, we felt ignored. Do they not assign tables to servers? Not enough servers. The fish tacos were good but served on well used wood planks which made me squeezy asked for a plate and Michael brought it immediately. Lobster bisque delicious. Bread pudding delicious.

    We were a party of two. We ordered the coconut prawns as an appetizer and they were amazing! Then we both had the Prime Rib special and it was delicious. It was cooked perfectly, medium rare. In addition I asked that I substitute my broccoli for a small Caesar a salad. Loved the Caesar salad! Our waiter was very attentive and gracious. No issues with waiting for service as I had read before on OpenTable. Service was PERFECT! Love the ambiance as we sat out on the deck in the evening. Such a wonderful experience for us!
