Lunch menu food was really just average, nothing high end, quite disappointing actually. The dishes tasted like food from a buffet restaurant, key lime pie was so chunky and roughly made that I left it after 2 bites. Not going back!

In traveling to NYC periodically, I often want to find a different place for dinner. A friend recommended Palm Too, so we tried it. The bar is small, tight and not very comfortable, but the dining rooms are nice. The booths have hard back benches...More

Eating at the Palm too is like stepping back in time. The portions are huge and food is amazing. I always get the lobster but don't miss out on the Carrot Cake.

Wandered in with a friend. Typical Palm wall decor, but a bit more authentic as it appears original. Typical steakhouse vibe and employees. Right out of central casting. Very good food, as expected.
