Mavens Overview: Simon
Chef Kerry Simon's Restaurant at the Palms features New American cuisine with a touch of Asian influence. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dress code is casual, in keeping with its location adjacent to the pool area.
The internet buzz is mixed, leaning negative. Rave reviews are few and far between. The restaurant seems to specialize in serving large portions of disappointment.
Internet Buzz: Simon
- The venue is inviting from the moment we walked in. I highly recommend their Pomrock martini (This is a modified pomegranate martini). The noise level was quiet when we arrived, and increased a bit as the restaurant became busier. It never became a problem, though. I ordered the lobster Miso soup. This was probably the best miso soup I have ever had, but it can also set you back $10. To end dinner, Chef Simon actually came out and introduced himself to us. I would come back again.
- For around $35, you can get an all you can eat buffet with eggs, comfort food, sushi rolls, paninis, and juice bar. For about $10 more, you can have all you can drink bloody mary or champagne bevies. Ok - let's be honest. The food is just decent... not amazing.
- I had several pleasant meals at Simon back when it was at the Hard Rock. Nothing special: but food was always clean and fresh and service was always professional. Not so at his new outlet at the Palms. My #1 problem is that the menu really hasn't changed...ever. So what maybe used to be innovative Asian fusion is now SO tired and bored and there are so many people who do it better.
- Let me preface by saying that I'm always willing to spend good money for good food. I'm patient, and I'm willing to look past the minor details most people would complain about. But even with that kind of leniency, all for the sake of food, Simon was still a disappointment.
- Mediocrity at its best. The food was mediocre, the wine.... mediocre, oh and the service AWFUL!
- This a very eclectic place. Funky, casual, fun and really good food. I had Sushi(salmon and Eel) for an Appetizer and Tandoori Arctic Char for my Entree. The Sushi was simply presented (2 pieces of each), wonderfully fresh and very tasty. The Arctic Char was served with Herbed Cous Cous. The fish was perfectly cooked and the Tandoori spices enhanced its flavor.
- Simon French toast- the "STAR" of the menu.... I'm not a sweets guy but this could convert me... Frosted Flakes crusted brioche? Yes, it was delicioso... soft n crunchy, sweet n tasty, it was the ying n yang of the breakfast world.
- Our entree was the salt baked fillet for two. I have never had a steak prepared this way and was very happy with the results. The medium rare portion was unbelievably good and the medium well portion was still very good. There were two sauces served with it....the red wine sauce was our favorite.
- This restaurant is way over rated by its glamorized billboards and advertising. If you're looking for great food, you will be disappointed with Simon's restaurant. It's a confused japanese fusion/American cuisine restaurant. It's overpriced for the quality of food they serve.
