    If you like prime rib this is the place to go. Perfectly cooked and huge. Atomic horseradish to light up you mouth. Really who could ask for more. Of course the expected five star service throughout.

    What I remember as a great dining experience in former years on trips to Dallas is still okay. Service was attentive. Steak not cooked to order, and atmosphere seemed slow-maybe because it was a Thursday night. I expected a little more attention and inventiveness to the special(s)- lobster and steak. All together it was a comfortable evening, just not mindblowing like I remember.

    What can I say? Food here is always fabulous. No better place for lobster, unless you happen to be in Maine. Steaks fabulous. Sides superb. Excellent caprese with real buffalo mozzarella. Great Caesar dressing (I always ask for extra on side). Classy ambiance and service without being stuffy. Can feel comfortable dressed up or in jeans.

    lobster great-prime rib was extremely chewy, no flavor. Ordered dessert-creme brulee was soupy and chocolate cake was mushy. Left restaurant with an over $240 bill before tip (no cocktails) and went home to eat. With all the great restaurants in Dallas we will go somewhere else in the future.

    We ALWAYS eat at The Palm (at least one night of our stay) when we are in Dallas. So much so, that I elected to join their "837 Club" for frequent diners. After our experience on 8/29/14, I'm highly considering requesting a refund on that membership. Poor service by the waitstaff AND manager on duty, my steak was cold and the "recook" was well under-cooked (was ordered medium rare), the manager had such a flippant attitude toward the whole situation that I took the time to speak with her personally on my way out...she still had an attitude at that time. Coming from a restaurant management background myself, I NEVER let a customer leave without making things right, whatever that took...Lauren (mgr) acted as if she could have cared less.

    The waitstaff is amazing. The food, on the other hand, was just okay. We did the lobster special for my husband's birthday and it was just not at all impressive. Texture of the lobster was not flaky, but rather a bit gelatinous. The drawn butter did not seem to have any flavor, just warm and oily. The spinach side dish and lobster bisque were the saving grace of the evening. Note that if you can't finish the generous serving of the spinach, take it home and whip it into your eggs the next morning for an amazing dish!

    My husband and I went to the Palm to celebrate my 62 birthday. I have not been to the Palm since the late 80s in Houston. The service was impeccable as expected. We ordered the $99 4pound lobster for two. Presentation was lovely. The only problem was that the lobster was overcooked and tough. I don't know if this is a one-time problem or a continuing problem, but the table next to us didn't look burned like ours did. I remember the tails I used to get in Houston and was expecting the same. I was disappointed to say the least.

    We went for the 4# Lobster special and were not disappointed. It came with a great Caesar salad and a wheelbarrow full of Brussell Sprouts. The lobster was split perfectly and the server took the claw meat out for us. The service was excellent. The bread plate was good, though we ate only a few slices as the lobster was going to need a lot of room. The Key-Lime pie was very good as were the coffees. This may not be an inexpensive place, you get what you pay for even with a special, but it was well worth it.

    Once there was a great rest in the west end called the Palm but sorry to say no more. We arrived early for our res and asked to wait at the bar which was full and tried to sit at the counter which was full OF dirty dishes. Asking for them to be cleaned got us a dirty look. Sitting down the barstool was broken. Finally being seated the server immediately tried to tell us of specials or order, not very professional. When our 4 lb lobsters arrived they were over crooked. The palm has not been good since Al and Brian left. RIP PALM

The service this time was a little slow but there was a private party we were told that was seated at the same time. We keep going back and can't wait for my next lobster.

    The portion sizes at this restaurant are ridiculous. My husband and I split a salad and I ordered an appetizer as an entree, and it was still too much. They also use way too much fat in their food preparation. The food tasted okay, but nothing extraordinary, which it should be for the prices. I think they charged us extra because we split a salad, which is especially annoying since we bought a $147 bottle of wine. We won't be back.

    When we know we will be in Dallas, we ALWAYS make reservations at The Palm. The steaks are always impeccable, the lobster bisque to-die-for and the service is superior (thank you April and Sammy!!). The only negative aspect of the entire meal was that we felt the Brussels sprouts were a bit undercooked for our liking, but that is just a personal preference. The carrot cake was rich and decadent and the cappuccino was the perfect way to top the meal. Overall a fantastic experience and we WILL be back soon.

    I grew up in Boston and there are no better lobsters on the planet than the giant 4-6 lb Nova Scotia lobsters at the Palm. The cold water not only makes the lobsters get twice as big as in Massachusetts but it also makes them incredibly tender. For the best lobster on the planet, check out the Palm. They are running a $99 special until August 31, 2014 which includes two salads, a 4 lb lobster and a side. I upgraded to a 5 lb lobster ofr an additional $15. Great deal. Dave

    Went to celebrate a promotion of a friend. Shared a 4 lb Lobster with mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and a bottle of Pouilly Fuisse Chardonnay. Finished with 7 layer chocolate cake and Key Lime pie. For $350 I expected a lot more. The preliminary cocktails were watered, the lobster was overcooked, and the brussel sprouts were undercooked. The decaf cappacino cup was so hot I cold not hold it and had to request another cup. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Will not be going back. There are too many other restaurants in Dallas where the food is excellently prepared for this price

    I love going to the Palm! Last Saturday night, I took a very special girl on our second date there and it was wonderful. We had the $99 special for 4 lb. lobster plus two salads and a side. Great deal and I added two extra lbs. of lobster for only $30 total. The service was great, the atmosphere electric and romantic and my date loved everything! Only problem waitress couldn't find my 837 club number and I had to call today whereupon I was told that it had expired in 2009! I was never informed that this had happened! Also, I had just dined at the Palm in January and spent about $400 and was told that it would be applied to my membership! So strange! It is now going "up to corporate" whatever that means so 837 club get your act together.

My son and I both had fish dishes that were beautifully cooked, my daughter had either beef or veal Oscar and my husband had a wonderful 4 lb lobster he raved over. Desserts were offered and I highly recommend the "Bag of Doughnuts". It's a very special dish.

    We ordered the lobster dinner special for two. As I remembered the Nova Scotia 4lb lobster is one of the best on the planet due to the ice cold water found there. The hashbrowns, key lime pie and Grey Cellars (wine by the glass) were all equally amazing. I highly recommend the lobster at the Palm, which is on special all summer long!!
