The noise level at The Palm Court restaurant at The Plaza Hotel is quiet and conversation-friendly. Perhaps that’s because most of the sound is absorbed into the high ceilings and carpeted floors at The Plaza Hotel. Located just off the lobby, the noise in the restaurant still maintains a soft buzz. Don’t get us wrong — reservations go fast at The Palm Court and the wait is long without them, but the space between tables is enough so that ample privacy can be enjoyed. That’s not to say there isn’t the occasional amplification of sound during your meal. For us, that happened when a child celebrated her birthday and three members of the restaurant’s staff swooped in with a birthday serenade. Aside from that, our focus was on the conversation at our table — and our table alone.
