My husband, Tom, and I dined twice at Palm Court at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Pete Beach. The first was at our check in where we enjoyed a huge buffet with great variety. At first, we were cautious about the price, but soon realized that the quantity and quality of the food made it all worthwhile. Little did we realize that the mimosas we ordered after our long flight were BOTTOMLESS. The servers never let them go down an inch without refilling them, and at the end of our meal gave us to go cups filled to the brim. The second time was dinner on our last night at the resort, where Francis doted on us and served the best beef shortribs and veal saltimbocca I've ever tasted. The manager, Audra, also stopped by and chatted after our meal. We could not have asked for better food, friendlier service, or a more amazing and personalized experience.

We followed a recommendation from our hotel and went to try this place on a Saturday night. The hostess was busy but apologized for keeping us waiting. Audra, the hostess, was so much more than just a hostess! She made an effort to check with all tables and make sure they were having the best experience possible. Dylan, our waiter, recommended several dishes for us and after hearing him describe the lamb chops, we ordered the lamb and filet. The bread was excellent with olives baked into the bread. The dipping sauce was a perfect blend of tomatoes, pesto and spices. When tasted our meals, it was heaven! The lamb chops had a mixture of pistachios and spices that complimented the lamb beautifully. My husbands filet was cooked to perfection! We ordered dessert and the tiramisu had come straight from Italy. So creamy and so light. One of the best meals ever!

My friend and I had a very pleasant and enjoyable dining experience at the Palm Court Italian Grill last Friday.
We had a reservation. The hostess was very friendly and courteous and sat us promptly.
The server, Francis, greeted us with a smile and offered us beverages.
Looking through the menu, there were so many selections that we had difficulty making a decision.
Francis, was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us making a decision.
The beautifully presented Salmone Scottato and the Costolette D'Agnello Alla Griglia, arrived and they were just as delicious.
This was an excellent dining experience and we can not wait to go back.

We were made to wait quite a while without a reservation (and there were lots of open tables and lots of staff), and the communication was poor--we were not even acknowledged for several minutes, though we were standing right in front of the hostess stand. The food was pretty good but not worth the price.
