My husband and I ordered breakfast here and were very disappointed. We had our son and baby with us as well, but they had already eaten. The hostess told us to wait a moment when we walked up so we assumed they were busy. When she sat us, we noticed 4 other parties sitting at tables. The restaurant is small... More

Stay away My Wife and I ordered beer, food and a glass of Wine. 4 1/2 Hours later over The Atlantic we experienced, what you fear the most. Diarré and a ruined Stomach - It was a nightmare. We will never visit this place again.

Two got the ribeye with 3 sauces, and asparagus, the third party got the salmon. We added a three cheese potatoes, and all had a glass of pinot noir. The food and... More

For 16 dolars you get two eggs of your choice, sausages, bacon and a whole bunch of delicious potatos.

Having eaten in other Palm restaurants we decided to try this one while waiting for our flight home. I hadn't read the reviews but I have seen them now and they don't reflect our experience at all. We had been in the US for 3 weeks and the food we had- steak and crabcakes- was some of the nicest food... More

Visited here while transiting through JFK - massively over-priced (even for an airport Resteraunt) and food was distinctly average - had the burger. Decided to eat here as wanted to sit at a table rather than eat take away style food - but as with other reviews would definitely go for other options on the B concourse.

I feel like I got robbed. I mean prices are higher in a terminal and higher in New York. But, you want to leave feeling you didn't get fleeced. I wouldn't mind paying a little more if it was good, but it was horrible. Then, I left, turned down the B corridor and saw so many different options, that even... More

Just plain bad. Place was dirty, food was horrible, service was hard to come by. Do yourself a favor and eat a anyplace other than this one

If you wish to be completely ignored by the serving staff, sorry let rephrase that as those dressed as serving staff then you've found paradise. Believe me I literally mean what I say, they will pretend you don't matter or even exist, it's full on attitude which given it's New York you don't expect any too much different but these... More
