    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Things did not get off to a great start as my wife and I waited close to 10 minutes before any one approached us with menus or water after we were seated. When I mentioned to our server that I thought we must be invisible, she was a bit shocked. From that point on until the very end, the service was outstanding. But they made an embarrassing error right at the end. By chance, my cousins were seated at the table next to us. So when our bill came, I put my credit card in the bill holder, stood up and visited with them. We were less than 3 feet from our table. Yet, before we got our credit card back, they had cleared the table and had already seated another party at the table. I know they want to turn tables, but that was ridiculous.

    Great service from Tim. Good lunch menu with nice variety. Reasonably priced for the name/reputation of the establishment. Burger was large yet cooked well-done as requested. Cobb salad was good with requested dressing change. Assortment of bread ahead of the meal was a nice touch. Cheesecake is to die for!

    We drove up to the valet and we were met with a friendly greeting. We arrived during the 7pm rush, but hostess was great in handling the rush of customers for our 7pm reservations. She communicated how she would soon return after seating the group ahead of us. While we waited, we ordered some tequila shots at the bar. The bartender was friendly and quick with our drinks. The hostess soon returned and lead us to our table. Our server was Tim and he did a phenomenal job explaining our menu choices. He recommended the 4lbs Lobster special for 2. For two big guys, the meal was enough for us. We ate like Kings. For desert, we ordered the cheesecake with the raspberry glaze... It was amazing! I'm definitely going back.

    I usually hit the Palm a few times a year. This time was the worst ever. The Lobster Summer deal is not worth it. The Lobsters were not sweet and there was about four bits of meat each from what they say was a 3 lb lobster that cost $80 each with tip. Just think of the 16oz steak we each could have had.

    First visit to this well established steak restaurant due to an advertised lobster special and plan to move restaurant to a Beverly Hills location next month. The ad was a little deceptive - a 5 lb lobster dinner for 2 for $99. We each received a half lobster weighing 4 lbs. The meal did come with an appetizer course of soup or salad and a side dish, both were excellent. Service is also polished and friendly.

    For some reason, I have not been to the Palm in West Hollywood for about 30 years. I am not a big steak or lobster eater. I must say that the "Summer Special" 4#lobster split for 2 was the best lobster I have ever had. The martinis are still one of the largest and best to my taste. There were 6 of us and for some reason the traffic was horrible on Santa Monica and Sunset. Our party was 45 minutes late and the host and hostess were so efficient and understanding, we had asked for a round table and because of everyone fighting traffic figured we would get what we would get. We did get the round table and the filets were cooked perfectly, clams casino were delicious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. See you in BH!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants and if you love lobster as I do; you should definitely come here. The Palm WeHo will be closing its doors at the end of next month (Sept 2014) so it was a must that we come here before this location closed! I love the old Hollywood vibe & decor here. It's like a part of history. Not to worry it will be reopening in BH. I have always had an outstanding meal here with drinks to match and great service. I also always order the lobster and sometimes a steak as well. And not once have they missed the mark! If you go before the end of August they have a 4lb. $99 lobster special with sides included not to be missed. Get their Caesar salad. It's off the hook delish!! And the onion rings. YUM!

    After decades at the Santa Monica location, they could not renew their lease so they are moving in a matter of weeks to a new location near the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Just what we needed there! Another steakhouse. Think Mastros, Flemings, Ruth's Chris, Cut, Wolfgang's, etc. Most of the famous caricatures will be lost. The food was very good. The kitchen was backed up and I don't think the waiter handled it well. Bottle wines are expensive and corkage is $35.

    We had the most horrific service. Our appetizers were late, but the waiter apologized for the lateness. No problem, he is not the cook. Our meal came an hour &5 minutes after we ordered. He apologized again & said it was because of a huge party; however, the table in back of us, who came 15 minutes later that sat 5 were done w/their meal, before we even received ours. We were never offered desert. The waiter was with another table for such a long time, that i had to finally wave him over to bring the check, which should never be done at the Palm. Once he got our table, he apologized for being late because he was in a 30 minute conversation with regulars. Again, never brought a desert menu & returned to chat up the previous table.

    On quieter nights, I patronize the West Hollywood Palm for business dinners because the management, wait staff and food always deliver quality and excellence. On noisier nights when the din makes enjoying a low-decibel conversation more challenging, I party at The Palm with friends. The vongole and chicken (veal) parm never disappoint -- after all, The Palm was originally a ristorante. Clams oreganata, salad with Danish blue cheese dressing and the haricot vert are standout apps and sides. Steaks are solid, as is the seafood. The ambient lighting, unlike many other restaurants, will not scar the retina. If Dragon is your server, it's going to be a good night! Props to GM Tanya Hodge for her excellent stewardship.

    Several days before our reservation, I ordered a 4 lb female steamed lobster for the $99 special. I am a regular and very familiar with the Palm specials and this was my 3rd lobster special, so I am familiar with what to expect when I order a 4lb lobster. When we were at the restaurant, we were told no females lobsters and the and the lobster we were served was a very meager 3 pounder. The tail was the size of a 1 punder. When I complained to the manager, he bought us drinks at the bar, but I was at the Palm for lobster not martinis. Very disappointing.

    Went there for their summer lobster special. Lobster frankly was horrible. I am from Boston and sorry, it just is not even close. It's a shame if this is what people in LA think is lobster. My mashed potatoes were just OK also. I never complain, and I also never write these silly reviews but this is different. Others in my group had the rib eye and it was good, and their asparagus was very good. Perhaps they should stick with being a steakhouse. One other thing. We were a group of 4 and the table was so small and cramped as we were pushed up against a wall with a protrusion sticking out. Come on now!

    Excellent steaks. Service was good at the start but when a "more important" party came in we were neglected. Would have ordered 4 desserts & coffee but our waiter was no where to be found concentrating all his efforts on his "other" party. We'll be back but not soon. True, it was a Wednesday evening but the restaurant was extremely quiet---maybe 4 parties---we left at 7:45. We'll go to Dantana's down the street.

    We celebrated our anniversary with a visit to the Palm West Hollywood. We started with jumbo shrimp with atomic horseradish and the calarmari. Delicious! Then we went onto the fillet mignon and the new york strip steaks with sides of the baked potato and the brussel sprouts. Excellent...Dessert was the key lime pie with berry compote. We enjoyed a martini and also glass of the house red wine. Fantastic! This location is closing Sep 30 after being there since 1975 and moving to Beverly Hills.

    I wanted to visit and dine at the Palm as it was not only used in the US series Californication, but is also a personal favorite of David Duchovny. The staff were excellent!! Very attentive and as soon as I mentioned my reason for booking, they all gathered to offer their filming experiences with the cast and crew and they invited me to take as many photos as I wished and we had a few group photos too. Aside from the superb food and wine, they made my visit all the more special!!

    The quality has dipped a bit. The Monday salad is amatuer Cooking just a cuisinart mess of chopped veggies with vinegar not good nor interesting. Wines were good. Lamb chops and salmon were good but I can't say the mint a jus was greT on the lamb just ok. Had better lamb at Brown Derby. Service hit its stride and was excellent a bit slow in the beginning. Of course very pricey. Sad to see it move to Bev Hills soon like they needed a steak house and across from Maestros which should be interesting.
