    Get ready to open your wallet at The Palm. While I don't mind spending $150 - $200+ for a romantic meal with my wife, this place is over-the-top. The liquor pour was liberal in the bar but not equal to the $13 for a mixed drink of middle shelf bourbon. The food was good, but again, not equal to the bill. The service was nothing special for a restaurant of this caliber. Overall, it was a nice evening, just be prepared for the sticker shock when presented with the bill.

    The interior environment, the city life surrounding the restaurant and the location are all very positive aspects to dining at The Palm in Nashville. The food choices and the culinary results are excellent. While some would consider this pricey, that is not so much so as the value is real. Enjoy!!

    Took our teenage son here before symphony, in large part for the carpaccio. The food was as good, and the prices as high, as usual; the service, although not unfriendly, was somewhat lackluster, perhaps because of my young companion. The location, across from the Arena, is convenient to downtwon attractions; white linens grace the tables while portraits of celebrity guests smile down from the walls. The wine list is extensive, with numerous selections available in various-size pours. We split the carpaccio, which was wonderful; filet was cooked perfectly, and deliciously tender; sea bass was very good; cappucino, fresh berries with cream and, the bag of donuts for dessert rounded things out nicely. Worth considering for a splurge night out.

    In searching for a dining option close to Schermerhorn Hall that would accommodate our desire for a good meal with great service; we found the perfect place. Our reservation was at 5pm (opening) and there was a bit of chaos finding the valet and walking in as the restaurant was opening (minutes before 5pm, so we understood!) we quickly found ourselves at ease. The valet was gracious and unnecessarily apologetic. The server, Rebecca, was top-notch. As first time out-of-town guests, she guided us through the menu with poise and expertise. From wine selections to choosing salads, entrées, sides, and desserts that would showcase the talents and history of The Palms, Rebecca was a delight! Temperature, taste, and presentation all were excellent.

    We don't often eat at such nice places, but we wanted something special for dinner prior to our symphony event. The Palm was outstanding in every way. We were seated promptly at 5:45, the service was attentive and courteous without being annoying, and the food was out of this world. Sure, it's a little expensive, but the quality is unbeatable and the portions quite large, making the overall experience worth every penny. Downtown Nashville is blessed to have such a fine restaurant and we hope to be going back soon. Be sure to come hungry!

    We've been aficionados of the Nashville Palm upon moving to Nashville 10 years ago and dine here regularly. The food is not trendy or exotic, but it is consistently excellent. The staff provides friendly and efficient service. And the ambiance, well, it's the Palm. While not inexpensive, we've never left feeling less than satisfied.

    Everything here was really good except that we had to wait to be seated, even with reservations. The service was perfect with timing and the food was amazing. I do wish that all of the apps weren't seafood. It is pricy with a 1 glass of wine costing me $19.5O and my filet was over $50, but the meal was so good that I will definitely be going back at some point.

    This is not one of the better Palm restaurants I have been to. Although the food was okay, and we ate it because we were starving after a long drive, it was not very good and quality and standards were lacking. The steaks were not seasoned, there was no bread because they didn't want to make more, of the three sides we got: the green beans were the best, hash browns were gross and not at all seasoned, and the fries just tasted like unseasoned fries with a tiny bit of Parmesan cheese on them. Appetizers were average, but not special...dessert was the best part of the meal (we got the donuts). Our server was not with it, and seemed like he didn't want to be there. Not the service or meal I would expect at a "fine dining" restaurants.

    By far my most memorable experience in town. The staff was highly accommodating and cheerful. The dining experience was second to none and the food was the only thing talked about once it reached our table. The staff was highly knowledgeable of the food and the sights , as well as recommendations for various nightlife and brunch, for which we were all satisfied. The fish was so fresh it practically jumped onto the plate. It was a memorable time and experience that left us smiling ear to ear.

    Got to the restaurant and were seated promptly. Noise level was a louder than my wife and I had anticipated, definitely not a quite dinning experience. We had the fried lobster bites for appetizer which were over cooked and made the lobster chewy. My wife order the lobster and although it was good, the presentation left much to be desired. I had the swordfish steak which was good and was seasoned superbly. Service was excellent.

    Their food is good. Great steak. The potatoes au graten are the best. However, it's $40 or more for a steak with absolutely nothing else. Sides are about $8 to $10 although they are large enough to share. It is a nice place for a special occasion, especially since the arena is literally across the street.

    My husband and I average dining at the Palm once per month. It is one of our favorite "go to" places because we know what to expect and we have several favorites on the menu. I rarely eat red meat, but when I do, I prefer to enjoy an outstanding filet mignon at the Palm. The quality of the food is consistently very good, and the service is consistently very good. We always feel that an evening at The Palm is a special event - the food makes it special and the service makes it special. I strongly recommend the Palm for anyone looking for great food and service.
