Palm Restaurant - Chicago
delivers what the palm isdelivers what the palm is known for, large meals and large checks. consistently good food, and great wait staff!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStormy NightWe were celebrating our birthdays and it took awhile to find a good night, but when we did, we booked early and were looking forward to it, when the weather forcast was for rain, hail wind and possible tornados. We thought of rescheduling, but went ahead anyway and had a great time and the weather turned out to be fine. The drinks were great, I had a champagne cocktail that I loved and then we shared a special summer lobster dinner for 2 at a special price. The lobster was delicious and we had fresh berries for desert which were really fresh. The only thing we didn't like were the brussel sprouts, probably because they weren't the way mother makes them, but that's just a matter of taste. All in all it was great. Superb and friendly service,6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWONDERFUL!This restaurant is a GEM!

All are nice the food is good, the steaks are great and the place is comfortable and moderately casual. Yet, in Chicago the staff are remarkably friendly, engaging and attentive. They really make the experience. We went on Mother's Day with our adult children and had a wonderful time.

The servers are always pleasant and the food is delicious.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAttitude reflects LeadershipI was in town for the Bio International convention. I held all of our most important lunch and dinner business meetings at this Palm. The service that we recieved and the way we all were treated was nothing less than OUTSTANDING. There is an old saying that goes "attitude reflects leadership". All of this restaurant's management should be commended on the exceptional service and wonderful attitudes their staff exhibited. This Palm is truly a shining beacon for other restaurants to emulate. Whether or not we won any of our business meetings is yet to be determined. What I am sure of is that whenever my travels or conferences bring me through Chicago again, ALL my meetings will be held at this Palm restaurant.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSal are server was great.Sal are server was great. The sear tuna was great, very fresh. We asked and they had Prime Rib,yum!! No whole lobster at all. So we had a lobster tail, New York strip and crab cake. The crab cake was a free special. Everything was great. Hope they have some live lobsters next time. We like sharing a large one. The tail was good but to small for the three of us. Chicago Palm still has the best service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA steak at The Palm neverA steak at The Palm never disappoints. Great restaurant for special occasions.

Larry3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak and serviceGreat food and service my only negative is we were almost helped to eat a a pace we couldn't keep up with, so prt of our $90 sharing steak was doggie bagged we missed dessert and unfortunately had to bin the remnants (staying in Swisshotel sp no opportunity to use).3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Lobster CelebrationWe were celebrating my nephews first visit to Chicago....he doesn't usually eat at seafood and steak restaurants. This was a very special evening for us. And it did not disappoint. Lana was our server and she was AMAZING!! She made the night perfect!! She took care of an under cooked steak in no time flat. She was gracious, engaging and professional! She let us know when they were running out of Whole Lobster which was WONDERFUL since that was our reason for dining at the Palm that evening. The last time we took my nephew out for Lobster was the day of my father's funeral...so we wanted to do it on a more uplifting occasion. Thanks so much for the attention and conversation.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is 1 of my favorite restaurantThis is 1 of my favorite restaurants.
