    My friend and I went for lunch after visiting the Grammy Museum and for a belated birthday celebration. I had ordered the Ahi Steak - RARE and my friend the Salmon, along with a side of Brussels sprouts. Her Salmon was perfect! My ahi on the other hand was not RARE and had to be re-done. The Brussels sprouts seemed underdone to me….but then I like them a little on crispy side. By the time my ahi was brought back, my friend had of course finished her meal. The save was that the second ahi steak was cooked RARE and to perfection! great flavor and texture! Why couldn't they have done it right the first time. Did they offer anything for the inconvenience--NO!

    I chose The Palm because I enjoy the West Hollywood location and Downtown didn't disappoint. In fact I enjoyed the Downtown Palm better than W. Hlwd. The service alone deserves a Michelin star. The food was excellent and delivered in time to get to Staples Center without rushing our dining experience. I will make the trip just to dine there again.

    The wife and I attended a concert at the LA Live venue and had a wonderful dinner at the Palm before the show. Located just across the street from the Staple Center and LA Live venues, the Palm is a wonderful alternative to Flemming"s Steak House and the other food venues. Prime beef, wonderful menu, steaks that are just as good as any other prime steak house. Excellent martinis and wine list. Casual to dressy. Any business day that is a non-LA Live/Staple Center event will not be a problem for seating, especially with Open Table. However, on major concerts or sports events, the place is packed, so plan accordingly.

    This was the 6th time that my wife and I have been at The Palm Restaurant, and each time has been a wonderful experience. Each time my wife and I have been there, we've ordered something new to eat. And, each time ended being a real culinary delight! The Downtown location is within walking distance to Staples Center, Nokia Theatre and LA Live, which makes it an ideal location. I can't speak highly enough about the service and food, which were excellent!

    I'm a white male age 50. I've been to many steakhouses over the years in California and other states. The Palm was ok. The serving timing was way off for a 1/4 full restaurant. Appetizer were served and the salad was delayed way too long. I had to ask the server for a second (flagged down) drink. Secondly, if and my son ordered medium rare. Then one should not be rare and medium well. I spent $300.00 but not impressed. I'd rather have steaks at Scott's at Jack London Square.

    Been going to the Palm in W. Hollywood for 25 years and loved GG the ambience and more importantly the food! Downtown Los Angeles Palm was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT last Saturday. Night at 8:30 pm. Only about 8-10 tables so I thought it would be great. Wrong! Hunter insisted on the 2 person appetizer with 2lambchops 2 crab cakes. And calamari. OK we conceded and although the lamb chops were good.... The crab cakes were fishy and the calamari. Full of salt, we didn't. Eat either. Ordered rib eye and a filet which was very good, but Hunter forgot the Caesar salad and acted as if he thought we wanted it with our main course?? Worth desert and coffe the bill was 250.00 including a great tip, only bc they know us.

    Every chance we get to go to The Palm - we do! Not just for special occasions because going there IS a special occasion for us. The steaks are always cooked to perfection, the array of sides covers all possible urges even for a foodie! The lobsters are always delightful, cooked to perfection and then with some table side assistance to crack open the big claws - all I have to do is sit back and enjoy my gorgeous lobster - yum! The cocktails are crazy good - my new fav is the Sin City Kiss with vodka and PAMA pomegranate juice - a great buzz WITH antioxidants! LOL What could be better? The service is always professional and spot on. The managers watch like eagles over the entire dining room and keep the flow of things going smoothly. :-)
