The Palm at Hard Rock Hotel® Orlando is an upscale steakhouse with an eccentric New York atmosphere. Known for its signature steaks and seafood dishes, the restaurant is great for a special occasion or a tasty treat after a day at Universal Studios.

The brand of restaurants was established back in 1926 in New York City when Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi opened the very first Palm Restaurant. As natives of Parma in Italy, the owners brought their Italian roots to this establishment and combined them with American fare.
