“When the announcement came that we received the Grand Award, we were closed for the summer months as we do every year. Upon our reopening, we saw a significant increase in business from years past in a short amount of time. We also noticed a distinctive number of guests specifically interested in our wine program. The visibility promoted by receiving the award is extraordinary.”
“The Palm Restaurants are proud to be granted the Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator. The screening process is a solid barometer for making sure that our wine list is built of a ‘well-chosen selection of quality producers’, that fully complements our food, atmosphere and service standards.
“We have seen a very large increase in wine sales since receiving the award. It’s really exciting to see people from all corners of the world discovering the restaurant as a result of the award.”
“Since winning the Grand Award we have gained exposure to major markets in the U.S. which resulted with an influx of guests who share our passion of wine, making our daily work lives even more rewarding. Our staff interest in wine and spirits keeps on surging along with their knowledge, allowing us to deliver better and better service to our guests.”
