    Outstanding downtown restaurant across the street from Bridgestone Arena. We had dinner in the bar area, had a fantastic dinner (lobster and filet), and the atmosphere was a lot of fun. It is clearly a "go-to" place in Nashville. I give it 10 stars.

    We chose The Palm as a special experience to add to our concert evening at The Ryman. The Gimlets and our meals were wonderful! Overall, the service was good. There was little greeting when we arrived. Our server seemed rushed. The ambiance was cool. However, the bathrooms were strangely inconsistent with the upscale restaurant experience. They felt like bathrooms in chain restaurants.

    Ate at this location twice, dinner and lunch. Typically we avoid chain restaurants on vacation, but this was perfect spot for guys after a Vandi game. They loved their steaks. My husband loved the huge carrot cake I joined in later for ahi and salad and my little nephew got shrimp coctail. $20 for 4 large shrimp expensive for kid, but l was happy he ate healthy. Two days later we had salads topped with salmon for lunch. I needed something familiar and was not dissapointed.

    We've been going to this Palm location only a couple of times a year for the past 6 or so years. This past year, the food has gone downhill. The lobster bisque is still my favorite in the city, but just about everything other than that seems to have gone downhill. I can't be sure if it's the quality that has gone down or the preparation. The server was very nice but it seemed she was spread thin. The second bottle of wine we purchased took 45min to arrive as well as water/non-alcoholic drink refills only happening once throughout the 2+ hrs we were there. Anyhow, I hope they turn things back around soon.

    Visiting my son in Nashville / party of six. He had just dined at the Palm for his anniversary a couple weeks ago. We were celebrating a birthday / phoned ahead / they forgot to let server know. Service was very-very poor / not much attention to detail from our server / had to ask several times for things. Know she was busy / but we sure didn't feel very important. Everything dragged on. Steaks ordered medium / almost all were rare / we sent one back. Only saving grace was that the Manager saw the problems and did his best to correct. Lots of other nice places to go in Nashville so I am not sure we will ever visit again.

    Menu selections are extensive. Fantastic lobster bisque. Prices in general are on the high side and the lobster ordered as part of the special looked a more than a little small. Otherwise the server was excellent and the restaurant ensured that we had a fantastic dining experience. Valets deserve special thanks for walking people to other venues and handling cars in an absolute downpour.

    We booked at the Palm because of a gift certificate. Both of us had the lobster special and it was not a good experience. Although the service was great, the lobster was not. Tough and stringy and the presentation was gross. The wine was good, the lobster bisque superb, but I have no desire to go back.

    I have eaten at The Palm in Nashville several times before and enjoyed it so much I was excited to take my wife there for her first visit on Aug. 28. The service was top-notch, the pre-meal bread and butter excellent and the wedge salad and lobster bisque good. But the meal itself was no better than I could have gotten for a third of the money. We split a 4-pound lobster, had the chips and fried onions and creamed spinach as sides and none of them were very good. The lobster was very dry and tough, and to be quite honest had less meat than we get when we buy two 6-oz. tails on special at the local grocery. The spinach was very bland and the potatoes and onions a greasy mess. The visit was not worth the money and was below our expectations.

    We had to go and find someone to take our drink orders And it never got better. While the sea bass was oK, the rib eye was rubbery. Presentation was nil. Just a chunk of meat on a white plate. $250 for a poor meal. I won't be back.

    It was absolutely awful. I have eaten at the Palm many many times and it has gone down hill so much I can't even believe it. Super expensive and my meal was so salty it was awful. They managed to mess up my filet and even my drink was salty. I felt so awful that night. I just had a bad reaction to the salt overload. Would not recommend. Not the place it used to be.

    HurryUp
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    The service was over the top. Twice waiters or table help removed items from the table and interrupted the meal. Unless the patron asks you to remove the dishes, let them sit. One grabbed up my leftovers, put them in a sack and set them on the table and my wife was only half through her meal. It made her feel as if we were being rushed through dinner. She was sitting with her hand in her lap with three bites of caprese left on her plate and one of the table personal passing by grabbed the oil and vinegar from the table as they passed without asking if she was finished. We had to request it be replaced, which took a while. Good service is one thing, but the hurry up by the staff ruined the dinner experience.

    We love the Palm and I have always found that the Palm in Nashville is one of the best. On my last visit on a Saturday night, the place was jam packed. Not an empty seat in the house. The food suffered just a little as it took longer than normal for it to reach us. And, the steak was not piping hot. In fact it was pretty cool. However, we were starving and didn't want to wait to send it back. I will go again, but I think I will choose a week night when hopefully it won't be quite so busy.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    The Palm is a high end steak house as advertised. I wont complain about the price as most know what they're getting into when they select a restaurant of this caliber. The seating was a bit cramped, and your conversation blends with the tables to the right and left, but that's part of the ambiance I suppose. The steaks were good, as I would expect them to be. Sauteed Spinach likewise very good. The half & half was a surprise and didn't meet with my expectations. It was listed on the menu as half fried onions and half home fries - what came out was essentially something that would best be described as a garnish, not fit for an a' la carte side. My suggestion would be to remove this from the menu or change it to more accurately describe it.

    This was my first time to eat at The Palm. The people were friendly and attentive. We had the lobster for 2 dinner and the lobster was delicious. I had the house salad and found the "house" dressing to be bland. We tried the lump crab appetizer. It was alright, but nothing special. It was a nice experience, but I don't think we'll frequent the restaurant.

    My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary in Nashville and a friend recommended the Palm. It was delicious! The service was top notch. The atmosphere was great for a romantic dinner, although I did see several groups in the adjacent rooms that looked like they were having a good time as well. Def a spot I'd recommend for a special occasion.

    The Palm was a great place to celebrate my birthday! Wonderful food, and great service... It was a very nice experience. the only slight negative was the noise level. It was extremely loud. This may be due to the fact that there were several large parties of women seated in close proximity making a lot of noise.

    The tables for two are very small for such a large meal but that turned out to be one of the benefits of our first experience at the Palm. We truly enjoyed meeting our table-mates, Ed and Kathy, who helped segway the surprise tickets for the Steely Dan concert I slipped my husband during dinner. They had tickets too. It is a rare opportunity this far inland to enjoy lobster flown in from Nova Scotia. We feasted before the concert and were well taken care of by friendly staff. I highly recommend the Palm for your next special occasion
