    The food at the Palm restaurant was amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and ensured that all of our request were granted. I did not have wine but noticed a very notable wine list. The steak and pork chops are great, and the sea food was much better. The portions of lobster are similar to those of sea food restaurants in the northeast. My family and I did not frequent this restaurant before, but has definitely made my favorites list.

    The Palm never disappoints with their food. Our server seemed new, as my wife and I had never seen this fellow and we dine there monthly, and it showed. He was a little cheesy but serviceable. We love The Palm and will continue to dine there. Our favorite steakhouse in Houston, by far.

    Returning to The Palm for Valentines Day after spending New Years Eve with them was another treat. Unlike many restaurants that force you into a limited menu, then forces you to pay more, for less, The Palm has some special event items, but also allows you to purchase off the regular menu. This is one reason I far prefer The Palm over other notable restaurants for special occasions. I simply want access to the full menu, and do not feel it appropriate to be fleeced just because it is a notable Holiday. Our meal was wonderful, with both my wife and I ordering steaks. The wine was fantastic, and the service simply doesn't get better than The Palm. Overall, a great experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    The 5lb lobster we ordered was ok, big but had no taste and was overcooked. Nothing to brag about. Side dishes ok as well. The service is absolutely outstanding. We went on Valentines Day so it was very busy and a little noisy but our waiter was excellent. Probably won't return for a 2nd visit. Way better food out there for the price!!

    I lived in houston for all my life and seen the Palm but never stopped in. I decided to take my wife in for valentines day and we really had a good time. The food was really excellent and wait staff was great. Yes it was a little pricie but i guess thats normal for a good steak and seafood place. Just before we finished we were told that the following Saturday was the last day for the restaurant to be open as it was being closed for 4 months. It is to be to torn down and rebuilt. Im sad to see the orriginal building go and wish I went sooner but i really look forward to the new and improved Palm.

    Great Saturday night outing to celebrate a family milestone. Food and service were great. Detraction is that this restaurant seems to grossly overbook its reservations. After making the reservation 2 weeks ago, upon arrival there was no table ready for us, the place was a madhouse, people were getting shuffled all over the place. Rookie maitre'd: We got taken to a table, but it was one chair short, so back through the restaurant we walked to the front again. Then, we were taken to a booth that would have comfortably held 4 people, but we were 5, so the 5th guest had to sit in the aisle. To make matters worse, the table was absolutely the last one right by the food prep area and kitchen doors. C'mon Palm! You're a national chain

    Love this place...intimate enough for a romantic dinner for two. The wait staff are personable and engaging. The lobster was cooked to perfection, as was the filet mignon. Sauted spinach was as fresh as it comes, the wine list was expansive and reasonably priced. My go to place when I want impeccable food and service.

    The food and service were, as usual, very good. Husband and I ordered from the special which was three course dinner for $49.95. I had the 20 oz vealchop which was cooked perfectly. He had the skirt steak and fries which was also cooked perfectly and was very tender. The bread pudding desserts were huge and we took one of them home. The only complaint was with the roasted beet and goat cheese salad which contained four tiny pieces of beet on a large bed of arugula. The salad was excellent but when you are going to feature beets in the name of the dish more of them should be included in the salad. This is usually our go to place for whole lobster but all of their food is typically excellent and The Palm is a really fun place to go.

    This dinner was not our first dining experience at The Palm. We don't go often because it is not convenient to our area. Our table was available on arrival, our service was perfect and the food was excellent. I ordered a glass of wine that I decided that I didn't like, and when I decided to order a different glass, the waiter did not charge me for the first glass. I argued that it was my fault, but was told that my satisfaction was most important to them. The Palm is a long established Houston tradition that no one should miss.

    The Palm consistently shines in its food and service. We almost always have steak and lobster. I have always rated it the best lobster in town and will go nowhere else for lobster. The servers have been there for a very long time and are professional like you would find in New York. Cheers to Dario and Omar, the servers we ask for whenever we go. The bar scene is always fun and Bobby the bartender is the best!

    We are regulars at the Palm and we have Arturo, Tino or Juan as our person depending on who is working that night. They all do a great job taking care of us. Love the 3lb lobster and the steaks. Most of all we love their frequent diner program called the 837 Club. Check it out. They are probably due for an interior refresh but that doesn't diminish the great food and service.

    My wife and I had dinner at The Palm on New Year's Eve. Due to the increased holiday crowd, we had to wait 25 minutes past our 8pm reservation time. Had a drink at the bar which was quite busy. The 2 bartenders did a great job despite being overrun by bar patrons and filling orders for the wait staff. Thought the manager should have added another bartender or two to accommodate the crowd. Some folks decided to give up on ordering, after waiting so long, and that is lost revenue. Once we were seated, the service was quite good, the food arrived hot and at reasonable intervals. Overall a positive experience.

    Been going to the Palm for years, I have NEVER been let down once...on this particular evening I had the Chilean Sea Bass, and my wife had the Filet Mignon, rare, and they were both succulent (we shared each others dinner). Kudos to our server Kevin for the recommendation for the Sea Bass, as it was my first time trying it (I've been berated for trying fish at a place known for steaks before!), and will definitely NOT be the last. the Seared Ahi, Crab cakes appetizers were just pure bliss, and the Creme Brulee was divine as usual. Must give some recognition to the manager on shift at the time for his new cocktail creation that we tried...WILL have that again (not on the menu, so you must ask the young manager for it!)
