Diner Reviews
  • "Not what I expect when I go to Palm. 1st time/last time at the Boston location. Too bad, they have a outside eating area."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Four of us had dinner on the patio and we couldn't have been more fortunate with the weather on this past Saturday night. Had a gift certificate, that The Palm Restaurant donated to the Big Sister's of Massachusetts, so kudos to them for giving back to our community, Had a great dinner with friends got to look out at the nearby Boston Skyline"

  • "better background music, not the jazzy teen noise you play, more like a sports bar. Pavarotti and co. or some classical would suit your classy scene better does it have to cost so much ? Love your room, the scene , the location, especially the window booths keep out the riff raff that do not wear collars"

  • "Good service and good food. Nice up-scale restaurant and good location."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I love the Palm; however, my steak was a little overcooked and yet not hot when it got to my table. That could have been the waiter given that he was not frequently coming around. I typically get better service at the Palm."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Food was warm, service was horrible, GM is cold, no welcoming feeling. We waited 15 for a breadbasket where only about 6 tables were being serviced. The GM was unresponsive to my email of feedback. The food was mediocre. The potatoes gratain for example was chopped potates drowned in cream and no flavor oversalted. Drinks are small and boring at $14. The steak was overcooked and we were told it would 20 min for a new one. The best steaks in Boston are at Abe & Louise's. The Caesar salad was salty and lettuce had red pieces and wilted pieces. Definitely not worth $260 on a meal for 2. Menus were dirty. Glasses broken and dirty. Horrible experience!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "As always, the Palm knows how to serve a GREAT steak...along with good wine and excellent sides. Additionally, sat outside and it was an excellent change of pace for dining. I'll be back again!"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The waiter got a few things wrong and for a business lunch unless you have two and half hours to spend on a business lunch go right ahead, but if you don't have the luxury of being away for that long skip it. We only wanted one desert and repeated that and the waiter brought two and charged us for two. Not even worth arguing over as who knows how long that would have taken to resolve."

  • "A regular to the Pal, but first time in Boston. Great service and good food as expected."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Tried your restaurant for the 1st time for a client luncheon. My server was not as knowledgeable as I'd have expected given the level of establishment. I had the crab cake sandwich, which was served on a stale roll. Also, the side of cole slaw was all of 2 bites served in a small metal ramekin, hardly what I'd expect for a lunch that cost close to $20. There was no value for price paid and the experience was extremely forgettable. Won't be back."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The noise level is what's most problematic at this Palm locaton. Hard surfaces present the problem. Otherwise, much improved since my first visit soon after they opened. Salads/apps good. Steaks and lobsters very good. Sides excellent. Love the cranberry walnut bread."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Except for the remarkable space that it's in, a huge semi rotunda, we found Palm to be underwhelming. If you REALLY like anchovies order the Caesar salad. We got a handful on each salad; a bit too much even for our anchovy eater. The french fries were excellent. Otherwise, the steaks were good but very overpriced and the veal parmesan was basic. Too much salt on everything, we thought. We had a vegetarian in our group who can usually do quite well at grills because there are so many sides and salads - but that approach didn't work here. I probably wouldn't recommend Palm because there are so many other good restaurants in the area, but if you want a pricey steak house with an interior that catches your eye, this would be a good spot."

  • "Enjoyed lunch with a new colleague. The ahi tuna salad was delicious with the chunks of mango. The servers were attentive and friendly."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "As a customer of the Palm for 20 years- we had there most surprisingly horrible experience. the service is impeccable. We ordered Salmon and Prime Rib. the Prime Rib was spoiled and smelled- is was discolored. When bringing it to the managements attention- they apologized- BUT CONTINUED TO SERVE THIS CUT! Can you Believe it? Another person at the next table- the same complaint. My wife's salmon was all fat and she did not eat it. They did bring me a NY strip which was very tasty- but having lost me appetite- ate 3 bites and asked to wrap it up to go home and throw the salmon out. when we got home- the salmon was in the bag and they threw the steak out. Gladly when I called back and spoke to Beth the manager she gladly refunded our meal."

  • "Great service, delicious food. Great environment to talk. House wine is fabulous!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Friendly attentive waitress. Salmon very good. Broccoli and hash browns good. Calamari weak and red sauce (ragu?) terrible."

  • "loved everything about this restaurant. we had the steaks which were outstanding,cooked perfectly. service was wonderful. everyone pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. definitely will return."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Waiter recommended prix fix menu. We obliged. Petite filet with lobster and Bernaise was melt in your mouth tender. Lobster bisque was a standout and was gluten free (thickened with rice). Green beans were yummy with pancetta and pine nuts. Goat cheese mashed potato was tasty, as well. No room for dessert, with generous sides and a drink. Had a gift certificate which helped defray the cost. Would normally be on the high side for us. Will have to do cheap eats for awhile to make up for the splurge."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had made note of fact this was our 50th anniversary when we made our Open Table reservation but were pleasantly surprised by all the attention paid to us on this special occasion. Brian Brosnihan, the manager, made sure to visit us several times and the Executive Chef also paid us a visit. We have dined here before and our server Joseph Rhoudou has served us before. He is professional, efficient, and friendly. Everything went perfect from our greeting at the door to our leaving. The best part though was the food. We had a lump crabmeat crab cake and it was the best we have ever had, and that includes those we had in Baltimore a couple of years ago. Filet cooked perfectly and 1/2 lobster were delicious. A great spot for a romantic meal."

  • "but very pricey, be prepared. The food is excellent and they will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the preparation."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We have dined many times at several Palm Restaurants and this was one of our best experiences. We had a reward certificate that had recently expired,but the manager Brian honored it. Our server Pasquale was great, and best of all was the Prime Rib which was a special and outstanding."

  • "Service was great. Tim was very attentive. Food was good but very pricey. very noisy sitting out side. Four ambulances went by during our dinner."

  • "i took my wife for our 10th wedding anniversary. everything about this place was amazing, they even gave us a card signed by the staff wishing us a happy anniversary which was a really nice touch"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We had heard from a few people that the Palms was one of the better places to get some nice food in Boston, we were feeling like steak that day and decided to forgo our usual Capitol Grille and try it out. Everything was great up until it came to our steaks. It could have been a different method of cooking, but the medium rare steak did not look like the typical red, juicy steak. If anything, it looked as if the edges were well done, and the inside was on the rarer side of rare. Outside of that, everything was great."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "First time I was there for lunch. Palm is very under rated and one of the best places around"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I'm a new Boston resident and have been looking for great places to dine & enjoy a drink. Very happy w/ the very friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, & excellent food. Enjoyed the crab cakes they were fresh w/o fillers. The mixed mushrooms yummy!!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We were back to celebrate another birthday celebration. Once again Stephani gave us a warm welcome back and made the whole night special. They had Prime Rib as a special and we got two huge portions to complement our split lobster "surf and turf" it was the best prime rib in my long dining career, needless to say we had enough leftovers for a great brunch and another great leftover meal."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I have eaten at the Palm several times in the past for work related events, but saw an opportunity to bring my wife and her parents for dinner before attending a show in Boston since none of them had ever been. From the start to the end of our time there they raved about everything, service, selections, specials, wine, food, and desert. It made a night out with the in-laws and my wife a great all around time. We will be doing it again soon."

  • "After almost a year we decided to return to the Palm in Boston. Last year we had a terrible experience where the service was so slow and the lobsters came out raw! The manager gave us a card that was worth 2 free entrees so last Friday night we decided to venture into Boston. We sat outside and at first waited "10" minutes for a waiter to come over to us. At this moment I thought they had not improved!! Then a waitress came over and took over the entire meal and I can not say enough how the food was fantastic (baked Stuffed 3 lb lobsters) and the service from that moment on was impeccable! I would definitely go back again!!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Brian and his team continue to provide my wife and I with the best service in Boston. The food is simply delicious, and the dining experience never disappoints. For business or pleasure, The Palm remains our favorite restaurant in Boston!"

  • "Lobster salad was very good. Not too much dressing and there was plenty of chilled lobster. My guest had the Ahi tuna salad which was equally good."

  • "This is my second visit to the Palm and as always it was outstanding. My husband and I had the 4lb lobster dinner for two and it was amazing."

  • "A fine lunch seated outside on the Patio, service was attentive but not intrusive, food was good (Lobster Bisque was outstanding)"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We loved the atmosphere. The food was great. We all took advantage of either the lobster or the filet/lobster special; fantastic deal. The lobster bisque was elegantly presented and delicious. You have to leave room for the "bag of donuts"; a great dessert to share and have just a bite of something sweet. The staff was friendly, accommodating and ultimate professionals. We look forward to a return visit."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The noise level was awful. Ceilings too high and tables spread out too much. Ordered lobster for 2 that we had a coupon for and it was awful. I think they split the lobsters before cooking so that they put the tails in the oven and then cooked (steamed) the claws. The claws were raw!!! To their credit, they comped our meal, but suffice it to say that with all the wonderful places to eat in Boston, we will not be going back to the Palm!"
