Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good except too much salad dressing on the Caesar salad. There were only three parties in the restaurant when we arrived but we were seated very close to another one and shared a waiter with them. He spent way more time talking and waiting on them then us. It was rather annoying after a while considering the prices we were paying and the lack of attention. Veal and steak were awesome but sides were average and pricey. Good meal will probably not return."

  • "First of all, valet was standing in front of the restaurant and did not move when we pulled up. We had to ask "Are you valet?" before they came to our vehicle. Ordered NY strip. It was tough & dry. For a $200+ meal, it was terrible."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Everything that was served to our table of four was suburb, except the Chicken parmesian (I know, why order chicken parm at The Palm?), which was a tasteless mess of warm, not hot, melted cheese and red sauce drowning tough overcooked chicken. It was akin to something you might expect at a truck stop. The steaks and tuna were excellent as was the lobster bisque."

  • "My date and I enjoyed a very romantic dinner at The Palm on a Saturday. We ordered the summer "Lobster for 2" special for $99, which was a great deal for this location. The service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an elegant dining experience with quality options for food, wine and cocktails."

  • "The waiter was not friendly or helpful. I asked for medium plus and got well done. My husband and I split a filet and they butterflied it and then cooked it. Awful experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "the abundant lobstermeat heaped on top of the filet mignon was way overcooked but the steak was perfect... a bit too much dressing on the worlds greatest Caesar Salad... nothing to complain about even at these prices... even though these prices do call for a higher standard when grading... Overall, very very good."

  • "I love the Palm because of the food and service but think of the loudest rock concert you've ever been to and that's what the noise level is like - you have to be mouth to ear to hear what's being said by the person next to you and forget hearing the person across from you. Go early or late and you'll probably have a better experience."

  • "From the moment we arrived, the staff were courteous & friendly. The bar poured generous drinks & our server Eric was fun & attentive, making great suggestions. Our filets were perfect, sauteed spinach will make those who don't like spinach LOVE it. The loud party near us eventually left and we enjoyed dessert & coffee until we were ready to head back to our hotel, never rushed or hurried. Special occasion dinner as prices arent cheap but the service and meal are memorable."

  • "Good for special occasions, but watch the wine selection/choices. We got stuck with a glass of chardonnay for $18.75. So if price is a concern, ASK before accepting any waiter suggestions."

  • "Drinks were large and made exactly right. Our lobsters were sweet and cooked to perfection. The half & half side was yummy as usual and the asparagus was steamed just right. Our waiter was friendly and pleasant, but service was a little slow. It was our anniversary and we ordered the chocolate cake which is our favorite. Our waiter, with others, sang to us so the slow service was forgotten. a wonderful time was had by all."

  • "No matter what city, The Palm is always a constant. Great food and awesome service every time. D.C. location has been our favorite though."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "While the service was as good as it always is, the food was not. Fish came out cold and one side was badly burnt. It was also freezing cold inside when the outside temperature was 90°. This was evidenced by men wearing jackets and women having either jackets for wraps on."

  • "We had a good time at lunch today at the Palm. We all had entree salads, two steak salads and I had the lobster salad. The guys really enjoyed their steak salads but the lobster salad could have been much better. I love ordering lobster at the Palm and while the chunks of lobster were tasty the salad was entirely overpowered by the onions. If I ever order it again, I will make sure there are no onions on it. You cannot beat the service at the Palm."

  • "We had to push our reservations back due to a late cab which ended up in our favor. We had stellar service, the BEST rib eye steak I have ever had! The staff were very attentive. It was my sister's birthday and when we arrived there was a card on the table that the staff signed. A nice added touch. The ONLY thing I would say is that if I were there for a date, it was quite noisy and not the most intimate place. Other than that, the food, wine, cocktails, and service were outstanding. Thank you."

  • "I've tried to find a restaurant in Baltimore that serves lobster as well as the Palm Restaurant, but simply can't find one. Therefore, we make the trip to DC so I can have lobster a couple times a year. It's delicious and the sides are wonderful as well. Goat cheese mashed potatoes, green beans with pancetta and pine nuts - delizioso! I only wish there were a Palm Restaurant in Baltimore. Until then, we'll go to DC!"

  • "No surprises here. Got exactly what we expect from Palm restaurants- great food, and a lively atmosphere. Will say the noise level in this Palm is extreme. Would go back- it's always a wonderful experience!"

  • "Ok food-Bad timing. Unfortunately we were seated in the front, glass enclosed portion of the restaurant (which was 10 degrees too cold) next to a table of 12 guys who were just beginning a stag party. The small area sounded like a tailgate party at a football game. As the guys drank more, they got louder and the F-Bombs started flying. At The PALM! I had taken two very special friends out to dinner to celebrate their arrival in the US from years of trying to immigrate from Iraq. They told me not to get upset... "they were used to loud noise!" Our food was fair at best. My guest ordered a meager looking $47 14oz. NY Strip. I had the Veal Martini which was ok. All around bad experience at the PALM. Damien Harvey Washington, DC"

  • "Our waiter, Chuck, could not have been more accommodating to our large party ranging from a ten year old to a sixty year old. Everone loved what they ordered. We took his tips on the wine and the sides. Al Roker and Deborah Roberts were at another table and I'm certain we were treated like celebrities, too. We joked about "thanking" Al for the unseasonably lovely Washington weather but figured he deserved a peaceful dinner."

  • "Everything about our family birthday event went perfectly. Our special needs requests were handled flawlessly and graciously. Reservations, valet, front end, wait staff and kitchen were all firing on all cylinders. The Palm is not for timid eaters. Brobdingnagian drinks and servings of traditional steakhouse fare are what people come for. We had salads, lobster, steak and prime rib -- all of which arrived exactly as ordered. (For some odd reason, this steakhouse frequently runs out of prime rib ... If thats what you want to eat... consider reserving in advance.) We had an order of "1/2 & 1/2"-- fried potato chips and onion threads-- with drinks. A delightful dietary indiscretion. Beware: all "sides" are humongous."

  • "A friend of ours recommended going there as this is considered a 'place to see'in DC. The food was excellent. The place was very noisy ( thursday night) but that was to be expected. The only downside is that we picked a very good french bottle of wine. After the server broke the cork (trying for a good 5 minutes) he decided to go get another bottle. The manager then came back a few minutes later with the same bottle! explaining she would put the cork down the bottle and then pour it (which is unacceptable in any good standing restaurant). After trying that, she couldn't either and then (a good 15 minutes have passed by then) decided to bring a new bottle. Hoping this was an exception, we'll definitely try again if only for the food."

  • "We came here for a going away lunch, the service was excellent; however the food didn't my expectations. I had the filet mignon oscar and the meat was dry and the crab portion was nominal. I will be back but will order something much similar like a salad or sandwhich..."

  • "Our food was Luke warm when it came to the table. We asked for condiments and the waitress forgot about our request. We were placed in a location with a party that had a bunch of kids and they keep making noise, playing and throwing things. My biggest disappointment was the service and the temperature of the food when it arrived it was like they let it sit. I have eaten here before but this time is was a bad ordeal I would not go again on a special occasion day. I wanted to complain right then but was talked out of it by my family."
