We ordered a Reuben & Classic hamburger. Quick service -which is nice for the airport- but my hamburger even though prepared as ordered and looked great had no taste, nor did the Reuben. Good food just tasteless. I guess when you are serving so many people you have to omit the seasonings. Waiter was nice and capable so left a... More

The restaurant itself is njce but the service is slooooowwww. On top of waiting forever they sent out our sandwiches out with old, old fries. Definitely not worth the money. For a sandwich it's about $20.

The limping Bartender should not be working in the hostpitality​industry. First he told that an old fashioned (cocktail) would cost me my arm and leg because his boss knows I'm trapped and have money... After ignoring that part he mixes sugar with tapwater and start shacking my old fashioned, obviously the wrong way, half of it drops on the floor...... More

A nice airport location bar and grille. It's a decent bar, the menu was fairly extensive with nice food. the prices are typical for an airport. After security, downstairs from the security checkpoints before the gates.

Clean, good service, decent food. Good choice -- versus a fast food joint -- for breakfast to lunch while waiting for a flight.

We were flying out of JFK at the Delta terminal and saw the Palm Resturant. We felt confident of a good meal with the name recognition, however that was not the case. It was early so we were ordering NF breakfast--an easy meal. The menu is two items and sides--not a lot of choices. And with only two entrees they... More

Our first visit was good which sadly inspired the second. Flip a coin for this place! The first visit, the waiter was excellent with an attention to detail and the food was good. The second visit, the young waitress spent most of our hour long meal out of sight and out of mind. Food was the same, service the second... More

Waiter was very nice. Drinks arrived quickly. They were attendant. Plates of food that came for other people were large. Very clean place. Waiters seemed attentive it ther guests. More of a fancier menu for an airport. Also means more money as well though. Diverse items:salad, steak, burger,chicken. Salmon Very nice ambiance

I had to kill several hours before my next flight and I decided to have a snack and a glass of wine here and relax. That I did. The snack was a spinach dip and it accompanied chips. The glass of wine was $11. For this snack & drink I paid $30. It was a rip off. Service was friendly... More

Rude waitress, cold coffee, egg shell in my breakfast... In general, bad experience. Wish I'd read the reviews before coming.
