  • "Sorry to see it close end of Sept. It was a real ICON."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "$99 for a 4 lb lobster split for 2 people! Includes salad and 1 side. Great deal. A LA icon that's moving in September!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We each had the filet mignon for lunch, and it was cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths as it should. Cocktails were delicious, dessert was very fresh, and the service was impeccable."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We always love The Palm. The food is always very good and consistent. The only thing off on this visit is that the waiter forgot to bring the glass of wine I ordered. She realized that she forgot when she brought the check. All in all - we had a great meal."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "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!"

  • "We dine here often and are never disappointed. Anything you want is never a problem. Food and service were great."

  • "We celebrate our anniversary here every year with the Summer Lobster Special. It never disappoints! Also great drinks and service!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "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!!"

    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."

    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Food was excellent, more of an old school laid back vibe, not as fancy as we thought. A lot of kids and tourists when we got there for dinner at 8pm. Definitely a great location for surf and turf. The seafood was excellent quality and impeccable service!"

  • "Always a beautiful meal. Only for aristocrats however."

  • "our lobster bisque soap came luke warm i had to send it back to heat it up, getting some ones attention can be difficult! when they brought the bake potato to the table in two halves they set it on the table with no butter or chives, and left, the potato looked silly just sitting there, agin it was tough to get someone to help us and bring the butter and chives, we went for a six pound lobster, will we go back? i guess, its the only game in town!!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "My family went to the Palm for our annual father-daughter birthday lobster dinner since we both share the same birthday. Part of our tradition is the sharing of a large 5 lb lobster. Unfortunately, the largest lobster they had was a 4 pounder as the they were running low. It is quite odd that a restaurant that specializes in lobster only had 4 pounders since they are featuring their lobster feast for two. As a result, we ended up ordering two 3 pounders instead of one 5 pounder so the lobster shortage favored the Palm. Unfortunately, they over cooked the lobsters which was a big birthday disappointment and quite surprising since the Palm specializes in lobsters and normally does a great job. The pacing between courses was also way too long."

  • "It's always good at The Palm. Food was fabulous, service excellent and the managers came by no less than 3 times making sure we were well taken care of. That's service."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We requested a booth when making our reservation. We passed many empty booths while we were taken to a very small booth. We asked the hostess if we could have one of the larger booths. She said she would need to ask her manager. As we waited, the manager came to tell us that the booths were needed for larger parties. (other parties of two were already seated) We told him we preferred not to dine there than sit uncomfortably in such a small booth. He did not even offer an apology or look concerned at all. The restaurant was less than half full with so many booths empty. I don't know why he didn't seat us. Were we supposed to tip him? We went to the downtown Palm and it was delightful."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Ridiiculously expensive! For example: $21 for plain pasta and tomato sauce; $35 for chicken parmasean, with no side dishes. Need I say more?"

  • "The Palm going downhill? Been there for the Summer Lobster Special over the years in Tampa and L.A. This time seemed less satisfying. The knife for cutting food was not sharp (or the lobster too tough?) The melted butter is not served on a warmer. My guest ordered coffee to start her meal. It never arrived. The Lobster Bisque was good, but I've had better. The Baked Potato came w/ a side of sour cream, but no other choices. I expected more from The Palm."
