    We went for NYE 2022 We started at the bar at had shrimp with oysters. I mean how can you comment on shrimp, but it wasn’t cold enough IMO Dinner We started out with Lobster Bisque, bland, bland, bland. It tasted like they watered it down. Dinner my husband had the lamb chops, ok. I had the salmon and it was bland and over cooked. For sides we had Italian herbed French fries and they were these plain and limp fries that were warm and plain, no Italian herb. Asparagus was cooked okay. Dessert was okay.

    Server was fabulous. Appetizers (calamari and crab cake) were great. My son’s pasta was dry. Our steak was overcooked. I had the sea bass. They put a clump of ice cold crab on top of hollandaise sauce and put it right on top of the the sea bass. The dish just came off as cold. The grilled asparagus and cream spinach was good. Caesar salad was good.

    Went for Thanksgiving as my wife does not like Turkey. Both the Special Thanksgiving meal (mine) and her steak were excellent. But the service from Tomás was truly exceptional and made for a very enjoyable and special Holiday experience.

    Waiter acted as if he was doing us a favor by serving us. Unfriendly Ordered salmon with lobster risotto. Salmon was cooked well, risotto was a tablespoon of dried up rice and speckles of lobster. We also ordered the truffle gnocchi for the table; dough was dry, barely any sauce. Disappointing as for the money spent and description of items, definitely expected more.

    This was our first visit in several years and we are extremely glad we did! The Palm, from our arrival though the end of our dinner, hit 100% on every scale. While the food was delicious and plentiful, it was all the outstanding service that truly made this evening special! Kudos to management (Carol) and our professional waiter (Tomas) and all of their team in front and back of house. I've already recommended The Palm Chicago to our friends via Facebook and I'm glad to add this review now to OpenTable.

    Appetizer was very salty, Veal chop was very fatty. Not a place to go if gluten free, not accommodating. Don’t see coming back.
