    Our waiter was more like the water guy. Knew nothing about the specials or wine. The wine was not served at the right temp. For a $200 bottle they should get it right. I would not recommend. To many other steakhouses in NYC.

    Disappointing. The bread wasn't warm. My salad was pretty good, but had a walnut shell or something in it that almost broke my tooth when I bit into it. Our steak was barely warm when it arrived and was way under-seasoned, if seasoned at all. The sides were "meh" overall. The creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes were pretty good, but the brussel sprouts were not good.

    This is the original Palm restaurant...dating back to the 1920's..It is original and exudes an awesome, timeless atmosphere. I'm a steak connoisseur and I've eaten at the best in town, but this one is the best ever. Had the bone in filet, perhaps the best steak I've ever had. My wife has the lobster and ditto...the best ever. The service was personal and exceptional. We were in town for a week and went back a second time before we left..I've never done that! If you're looking for the place in Manhattan, you can't go wrong with the original palm.

    I have always wanted to eat at the original Palm and it did not dissapoint. The food was fabulous, excellent service and the "Bag of Donuts" desert lives up to its rave review on the Phantom Gourmet TV show. The art work is incredible especially the old cartoons dating back to the late 1920's. A truely great restaurant.

    Being frequent diners at the Palm in Houston, we were excited to visit NYC and visit the one where it all started! From start to finish, it was a superb experience: great service from our very experienced waiter, perfect steaks, salads and sides and drinks......unfortunately, no room for dessert!! LOVED the wall caricatures, as well--what history!!

    From the moment we arrived it was terrible. Thrown in a booth at back of restaurant. Waiter could not have cared less about us. 10 minutes we sat with no drinks. Then finally waiter came quickly asked what we wanted then rushed off. Did not even get the chance to ask for water until he came back to ask what we wanted for out main meal. Ordered main meal and when it arrived it was slapped down. Waiter did not ask if we needed anything like sauces etc he just rushed off. He did not once come back during meal to ask if everything was ok. After main meal was cleared drinks were cleared and we were never asked if we wanted another.absolutely shocking service and will never return to palm New York. Dined in orlando palm abs this is brilliant.

    Whenever my husband craves lobster, this is our go-to restaurant. The Palm has not given in to the latest food fads by changing its menu or decor, and it doesn't have to. The service is impeccable and the lobster, in particular, is simply the best.

    I found the location to be perfect for a business lunch. I knew what I wanted to order and the food was prepared well. Plus, it wasn't too full, so getting a table and food quickly was easy. The restaurant can be a little pricey, which may explain the fullness of the dining room, but in all other aspects, it was a great fit for my needs.

    The waiters were good, despite both the water and the drink ordered taking some time before being received. I was able to get the waiters attention in a timely manner. They were attentive in that manner. My lobster was chewy as in overcooked. The deserts were wonderful. Perhaps, I had heard so much about the Palm that I expected more. It was noisy.

  • Is that lobster really 5 lbs.?
    Dave
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Dissapointing. Poor service. Long wait to order drinks. Bread came late. The appetizers arrived before the drinks. The 5 pound lobster has a tail the size of a 1 1\2 pounder. We were told it was because it was a male lobster. Guess we should have ordered a female lobster. I used to eat here frequently and always enjoyed the experience. Maybe this happens when a small restaurant chain expands too much. No more for me. I won't be back.

    There are lots of very good steakhouses in NYC. Palm makes a good steak, don't get me wrong, but the service is slow and the food is too expensive for what you get.The drinks were superb, but likewise, you don't go to a steakhouse for the cocktails. You're better off going to Smith & Wollensky on 3rd.

    The steak was not cooked right,it was charred on one side and grey on all the other sides. The waiter forgot what we order throughout the night and was slow at bringing drinks to the table. The lobster was mushy and over cooked and seamed smaller then ordered. I have eaten at other Palm restaurants ( Atlantic City ) and the meal was 5 stars perfect.

    The Palm is a true throwback NY steakhouse. This was our first time back at the original Palm in about 15 years and It's as good as it ever was. The summer lobster special is a great value. Strip steak was also superb as were all the sides. Laid back atmosphere, but the service is still top notch.

    This restaurant had very poor food taste and not much better preparation. The food was bland. A family of 4 had dinner before a show which cost over$ 270 and the only item that was delicious was the calamari. The crab cakes were bland as was tha ahi tuna . The tuna was not cooked correctly nor were the lamb chops my son ordered. The outside of the chops were completely burned and without seasoning. Stick with Smith and Wolensky's or del Friscos. At least the food is well worth the expense.

    We went for a special family birthday celebration. We were all satisfied with the many choices from the menu as well as the daily specials. The appetizers of shrimp cocktail and crab cocktail were large and delicious. Filet Mignon was superb and excellent fish choices as well. (The relish accompanying the swordfish was different and yummy.) Palm offered everything that a great Steak House should. We were all very happy with the evening. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. We have no complaints...only rave reviews. Will definitely dine there again.
