    They were really busy lots of groups...so very loud. DO NOT ORDER the Sea Bass special it has so much butter and is battered its just plain old soggy. But we will go back...stick to what they are known for steaks and basics and you will be fine - very decent wine list.

    The food is quite good even though a bit expensive, but what makes the event so special is the outstanding service! From Tim the GM to Mishka, our waiter, the attention to detail is amazing. The assistance in making selections for dining is much appreciated and have never proven to be wrong. If anything is not right, it is taken care of immediately. I have never enjoyed dining experience that always leaves you feeling special and that it was a great night out any more than when we dine at this location!

    This is a great date night venue. Perfect with a nice 2 person booth for a nice conversation and if you go a little later than the main stream, it is less noisy and you get a little more personalized service. Food was great and they allowed us to taste the wines they had by the glass to see if we would like them before procuring a full glass. Very generous. The desserts were definitely made for two to share!

    We joins friends for lunch, having only been to the Palm-Tysons for many memorable dinners. We had a great mean, as usual. The calamari and lump crab appetizers were delicious. The soft-shell crabs and steaks, and the family style green beans and hash browns were wonderfully prepared and presented. The dessert doughnuts with raspberry and chocolate dipping sauce and the key lime pie were enjoyed by all. As always, the service was impeccable. We enjoyed our long lunch and encourage others to try the Palm for lunch.

    We have been going to the Palm for decades. Tyson's is our favorite with Tim Seymour as overseer the place runs like a clock. We go often enough to have a favorite waiter---Lacher---who is a prize. When they have their summer lobster specials the pricing makes a visit to the Palm an even more special treat. One of their younger waiters taught us a trick when preparing lobster---Steam it to preserve volume and not let it dry out, but then put it under the broiler for just a minute. Also they are flexible about preparing sauteed garlic in olive oil to replace the drawn butter. P.S. At this visit my wife (lobster allergic) loved her strip steak.

    Made reservation for the Palm for my birthday. Asked for nice booth. They tried to put us at a table and kept us standing in the middle of floor while checked on it. Apologized for the mix up, but put us at a booth right in front of the server's counter (not a nice booth). Asked to break between appetizers, main course. Brought my husband wrong soup. Waiter didn't come back till he was almost finished. Second apology. Main course came right away. No break not relaxing. Another table sung the "Happy Birthday" to. Not me. Felt that Palm is focused on Corporate clientele,forgets/ doesn't care about everyone else. When we go to Season 52 or Bonefish for a special occasion they acknowledge it,want us as clients . Don't feel that with The Palm.

    The summer lobster special is amazing! 4# "bug" to share, one side to share and a salad for each for $99.00. That's a lot of delicious lobster. they crack it out of the shell for you making it easy to eat. Loved their Cosmo made with fresh squeezed lime juice. A winning summer dinner.

    Booking through OpenTable was easy and convienent. I put a little note in the reservation that we were celebrating my dad's 56th birthday. When we showed up at the table, The Palm had a birthday card waiting for him at the table!! What a difference the small touches make. Melinda was our server, and oh my gosh she was fabulous. She was extremely knowledgable about the menu and wine list. This being my first time at The Palm, she was very helpful in helping us pick the best options to suit what we were looking for. She recognized my dad's birthday and made it special for him. I highly recommend her. A restaurant is only as good as the service they provide. The Palm is top notch.

    We had dinner there Sunday night. One of the daily specials was red snapper. I ordered that and it was terrible. It was dry and overcooked. The sides were OK. My wife had lobster which was fine. Overall, the dining experience was rather ordinary and disappointing for the very high prices. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Palm is a typical high end steak house with high end prices. The meat is nicely done and the potions large. The normal prices are geared more to expense accounts than casual dining with the wine list mark ups pretty high. The monthly special is hard to brat but be aware that when you pick things not included in the special - wine, deddert, coffee - you will quickly run the price up.

    I didn't realize how much I missed dining at The Palm Tysons until I returned recently to celebrate a close friend's birthday. It was nice that some of the wait staff and even the General Manager (Tim) remembered me - even after 18 months! That brought a smile to my face and made the dining experience that much more special. The service is always top notch and the food always delicious. I plan to return soon - and not wait 18 months ever again!

    We went for the lobster special--a four-pound lobster for two. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter came back after a bit and said that the price of the wine had gone up since the menu had been printed and "was that alright?". I said "No, you should give it to us for the printed price". He responded that he would have to check with the manager. In my opinion, in a restaurant that thinks of itself as high-end, he should have done that on his own initiative instead of trying to get us to pay the higher price. Anyway, he brought the wine and charged us the printed price. The salad was way over-dressed, with mediocre lettuce. The lobster was good, as were the french fries, but the green beans were terrible.

    My mother and I went here for the summer lobster's special. The service throughout the entire time was great and I really have no complaint about that. The food, however, was a little bland. The two salads that we ordered, Caesar & mixed greens, were nothing special. The lobster itself was very good quality and huge, but how it was prepared was really really bland. I wish they would concoct a dipping sauce for the lobster to make it taste better. The brussel sprouts that we ordered were terribly bitter; I don't know how they got so bitter, but some of them were almost inedible. Overall, it was a great value, and if you really like lobsters and can eat a lot of it, you should go here.

    We love this restaurant and on this occasion my husband's special order Veal Martini was it's usual excellent self. Nice wine, perfect martini (best in the world!). I had the lobster salad and the lobster and avacado were exquisite. Glad they were on top, tho, because the salad was massively overdressed (1/2" of dressing on the bottom of the bowl!). So I basically couldn't eat the 'salad' part. Would have asked for more appropriately dressed greens, but wait staff was more interested in the soccer game than customers! So enjoy The Palm, but don't go during a USA World Cup game :=)

    We always think of The Palm as a great special occasion celebration choice. We haven't been there in a couple of years. This trip was so disappointing. Lobster Bisque: waiter warned us of the HOT bowl...however the soup turned out barely room temp; lobster meat on top of my steak was mushy, my steak ordered as medium well was cooked rare to medium rare; mashed potatoes seemed like boxed instant; my husband loved his steak and finished my "too rare for me" filet mignon. I was so surprised and disappointed.

    Overall, it was OK, but it seemed that being seated in a corner booth (not our choice) set the tone for being a good bit overlooked by the servers. When they did come by, it was a very "passing" interaction and very little inquiry about how things were, what we needed, etc. Not sure if it was a bad night or what, but I felt that others who seemed to be more regular got the attention that we did not.

    While attending a conference at the Ritz Carlton decided to go to the Palm next door for dinner with business associates. Glad we did!! They were having a Lobster special which we decided to partake and it was wonderful...Great preparation and presentation! Service was marvelous and our waiter was friendly and had things together for our whole meal. No steak this night as had it night before but I was in mood they were beautiful specimens. Will defenitly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal.
