Diner Reviews
  • "Perfect service. 3lb Lobster with crab cakes and lobster bisk. Lunch date was impressed. Tell a friend"
    Dined on 8/27/2014
  • "Excellent service with large pour of outstanding wine by the glass. Lunch was a great experience. Good selection of the lunch $25.50 special and one of my guest raved about his Sea Bass."

  • "Perhaps it was because it was a Monday dinner, requested quiet table they sat loud people all around us even though there were only a few people in the place, waiter was someone I had never seen and was annoying with his pepper mill and interruptions. Lamb chops were tough but tasty. Maiter'D came by and looked at the chops and wrinkled his face and looked very serious, asked how it was cooked and walked away. Not the kind if attention I am used to here."

  • "Really miss old waitstaff that were there for years from before the remodeling. They were efficient, attentive, fast, and very friendly. Would come say hello even if they weren't waiting on you. Restaurant was busy. Felt frantic. Two of us asked for dressing on the side. Didn't get it after asking bus boy. No waiter. Ate it anyway. No one came to remove meat from the claw like they used to. No crackers. Had to ask. Forgot a side, but they took it off bill and brought it later. Waiter didn't take the cue after being told in beginning that it was a birthday. Took a while to get his attention finally to get a piece of cake with a candle. Old waiters would have picked up on that. Cold, frantic instead of warm, friendly."

  • "We took advantage of the August Lobster special on 8/22--what a treat! Best friends, perfect martinis, great service--what could be better??"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "My prvevious reviews on the palm have been stellar and i still am not disappointed. Our 5 lb lobster had an exceptionally large claw that was coooked properly. Strangely the tail meat was not cooked fully and was translucent. The waitperson notified the manager. Although i suspected they would either cook more or replace, i assumed ther would be a wait. But a newly prepared lobster and fresh hot side was deliveede immediately. Great recovery. Those little forks for retreiving meat out of the shell were not given this time,and the ritual of lemon and hot napkins was not performed but such a minor inconvenience."

  • "Always wonderful service, food and a fun atmosphere."

  • "The Palm has become our go to restaurant for special occasions and once again it made our anniversary very special. Our waitress was awesome and she presented us with a truly delicious Happy Anniversary crème brulee."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We had a great business lunch here. The service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. The skirt steak on the lunch menu was the best I've ever had. My colleagues really enjoyed their lunch as well. Great spot."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Lobster Specials for 2 in August are great package. One of us also had the swordfish which was excellent. Good service. Good crowd all night. My request for booth and specific server was not honored as it was not received...not sure how that happened."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My wife and I saw an ad for The Palm's 'Summer Lobster Special' and decided to give the restaurant a try. We were not disappointed! The 4 lb. lobster special looked like something from a Flintstones cartoon; it was enormous but was cooked to perfection. The accompanying salads and sides were also expertly prepared. The only thing better than the food was the outstanding service we received throughout the night. We will definitely come back."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We were very much looking forward to the lobster special. We barely had enough to eat, I never had my water glass refilled, and we got out of there with a bill of $165. It was very loud and we went on a Wednesday thinking it would be less busy. There were four of us dining and none of us were very impressed."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "My reviews of the Palm are getting stale because the food and the service are always impeccable, which is probably the best endorsement I can give. Always reserved when we have a special occasion, and we almost always get lobster and it's always great."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "We love the new ambiance of the restaurant and the food is still as incredible as ever. The service is attentive without hovering. Our favorite appetizer is the tomato caprese (best mozzarella cheese EVER!). I ordered the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly (medium rare). Our sides were the half and half and asparagus. Everything was delicious!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We were seated in a booth as requested but NOT with Bruce, our favorite waiter. We knew exactly what we were going to order: 5# Lobster, 2 Caesar salads, mashed potatoes, No bread. I do not drink but my friend always drinks at least 3 martinis when we come to the Palm. She ordered a mango martini. Order placed and all is well. We had eated half our salads before her martini arrived. We kept looking around for our waited but he was not to be found. I had thought to complain to one of the gentlemen standing around the reception desk but did not want to cause problems for our waiter. We got through our excellent food. We then ordered one chocolate martini to share as desert. This arrived before any hot towels to clean our hands."

  • "An established oldie, newly remodeled, experienced staff, great food! If you haven't been here lately you are missing out."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "First time back since the remodel and it looks lovely. In August they always have a great lobster special for two. The lobster was so delicious, you thought it come straight from the boat to the pot to the table. They are so great that they split and crack the lobster for you. The place was very busy, but they manage to still be attentive. Our only wait was when we were first seated. Or primary waiter took awhile, but another checked on us twice and brought our bottled water."

  • "Had the summer lobster special. Best. Can't be topped."

  • "We are Club 837 members - we know we can always count on incredible food, service, and consistency! Has been and always will be a favorite of ours!"

  • "The Palm had a card ready for our daughter's 16th birthday. The waiters also sang and brought out a special chocolate cake. Dinner was great. The steaks were perfectly cooked as we ordered."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Post remodel, the king of Houston restaurants returns. I love this place in every location I have been to. The service and quality are top shelf and it is great for any occassion."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "It was not as noisy as before - we could almost talk at the table. Like the summer special - lobster was good - that is why we tried it again. But what is with the mcDonald's type paper towels in the ladies restroom?"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Food and service were good, age range of clientele perhaps was a little out of our range, more older crowd."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "for wife's birthday, we make our tradition at the palm. great service last saturday evening and a delicious 5 lb lobster to split. used to be nice getting that complimentary chocolate cake for b-days, but small item next to how much we enjoy our dining experience here"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "From the minute we walked in the door service was great! The bread was so delicious, the salad was fresh and well prepared, the salmon and sides were all top notch. My husband got sea bass and it was a huge hunk of fish, my salmon was the same. Coffee and dessert was just the icing on the cake! I don't remember the waiter's name but he was a really great waiter. He was jumping to do anything for us he could. Will most def be going back. Not our first time to Palm. Won't be our last."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Never had a bad meal at The Palm. These folks know how to cook and serve lobsters."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "This was my first time to eat at the Palm and the filet was outstanding; it would clearly rank in my top three for steak. The service was excellent and friendly. The lobster chowder was very nice while the crab cakes had bit too much filler for my taste. The Caesar salad was very good. The green beans were quite good while the French fires were a bit on the greasy side for me. We enjoyed the warm donuts for dessert- which were a surprise on the menu. The key lime pie was just so-so. All in all I will definitely return to the Palm."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The Palm never disappoints. Always a great steak and done to perfection."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were very happy with the outstanding service we received from the time we walked in to the end from the manager to the hostess. Great experience! Thank you"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I can understand some "growing pains" after being closed for remodeling - but the Palm/Houston has had enough time to get their act in order. Service continues to be horrible, slow to get even drinks and a menu. Cold steak and side orders! For this kind of money, and with all of the other good steak houses in Houston, the Palm needs to come around quickly on both service and quality of food."

  • "I ordered the New York Strip and it was delicious. I would definately come back."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Went for my wife and her twin brother's 60th bday with our grown kids. Most had lobster, I had veal martini. Lobster was broiled to their liking, still moist. a little overpriced, though we're more used to east coast pricing. veal was okay, nothing to brag about. free cake dessert for birthday. wine list was way overpriced. a bottle of Santa Margherita pinot grigio that I can by at Kroger or Sam's for under 20$ was 57$ on special. Service was very good / attentive. It is not a "quiet" restaurant, but it wasn't too loud. looked like a good bar scene at 6:30."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We always enjoy The Palm. Steaks are cooked consistently to-order (my "medium rare" steak came out perfectly medium rare). The potato and creamed spinach side-dishes are excellent. Though my wife's fish was slightly overcooked. Otherwise an excellent meal."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The only issue I have with this place was the 2 glasses of wine we order and paid 20.00 each and it was very clear that the wine we we were given was not a very good wine and for $20.00 that would be the only disappointment I had with the place. I guess we were drinking very good wine before we arrived and that did not set well with me and my party"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My husband & I ate at the Palm on the night of Father's Day. We shared the lobster special which came with two salads & a side dish. The food was outstanding & could not have been better. We plan to go again soon for our 50th wedding anniversary. My only complaint is that they could not find our membership number, so we did not get credit for this visit."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Took my son for lobster & steak, June 14th for an early dinner. Service was attentive when the restaurant was not crowded, but really waned later. Food came early, took 25 minutes to get the check. This is a very clicky restaurant with repeat customers getting the attention. A couple other customers who arrived later complained about the time to get their wine and appetizers. The special was $99 for a 4 lb lobster with appetizer & side. We considered a 6 lb lobster, but went the special, plus a steak. The lobster was good, not great, but was closer to 3 lbs instead of 4. The steak belonged at Outback or Sizzler, no flavor, couldn't get it cooked to our liking after sending it back twice. Disappointing for a high end restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "First time there and we live in neighborhood, improperly greeted by host answering phone and not putting it on hold to take care of our seating reservations. Felt awkward and not special since we were potential new patrons. Overall after that and our guest spoke with the manager about this, food and service was good. Bad review for my first impression."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The Palm is my personal favorite to take new friends; and to meet longtime friends. All aspects of this restaurant are 5 Star plus. We always have a divine experience at The Palm, whether it's lunch or dinner."

  • "It is always a treat and a very pleasant experience to dine at the Palm, Houston. The service was outstanding with top notch professional waiter. The food arrived promptly in a timely manner all together in perfect order. My father and I shared a 4lb. lobster, which was not bad, however it was not the best Lobster I've had. It was rather rubbery and chewy. The rest of my party has the Ahi Tuna and that was presented and cooked to perfection. It was sumptuous and delicious. Everything else was top quality and very tasty. The Palm is an all time favorite, and I will most definitely return."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Love this restaurant, but had an unfortunate incident in which the food I ordered came out as something else and I had to wait a very long time for them to correct the mistake. The server should have checked to see if we had gotten what we ordered, but she did not. She had no clue that I had to send it back through the manager. This is the first and only time I've had a problem, so we will continue to eat at the Palm as we think their food and service is normally uncomparable."
