The Palm is back in full force! Excellent food, even if you venture from their amazing steaks! World class wine cellar with new arrivals every time I visit. Can’t recommend more highly!

New Years. We ended up sitting at bar. Service was terrible. App took forever n came out same time as steak. They never asked how we wanted it done and just did medium. We were not in the mood to complain after it took so long for app. Also it was New Years no interest in being grumpy.

Not good or worth the price. Lobster tail was chewy and rubbery and cold. Mash potatoes was tasteless and cold and bone in filet was just ok. Breakfast was horrible the waffles was to sweet and the omelet was not good . The service was great but food was not worth it!

The three-course power lunch is a delicious deal! We were a multi-generational group of 4 and everyone was delighted with the range of choices. Plan on sharing dessert--or taking some of it home with you.

Food was subpar for the price. Mashed potatoes tasted like the came from a box. Shrimp cocktail tasted like it was sitting out for a while. Crab cake was average .
Overall experience was extremely underwhelming. We drove from Milwaukee to try this restaurant and we were extremely disappointed in the experience. Will not be returning.

Always a good place for a business lunch. The food and the service were very good. The menu is quite limited though. I was there again the next day for lunch and the service and food delivery were extremely slow.

Thanksgiving dinner.
We’ve gone for three or four years and always remember having a wonderful experience with amazing food.

This year something was a little different, but I couldn’t pin point it. There were little things such as no dark meat turkey, and no crimped crust on the chocolate pecan pie, as if it was intentional removed. Very strange.

My wife and I were very please to see The Palm located in our hotel in Chicago. We had dinner and the food was amazing. We the moxed salad was the best we ever had. Full of goodies and the dressing ws very light and tasty. The calamari was delicious so was the 3 lb lobster. It was a very pleasant surprise and a wonderful dinner.

Last time I was here was 2 years ago for a social event for a group of 12, food and service were great then. I was in the area and decided to come here for a nice dinner with the family. We had an early dinner so there was not a lot of people, which was nice. We were seated right away.
Server was rude, but then friendlier as we were almost done with our dinner. He was condescending and had an attitude. Never asked if we wanted another drink.
The meatball appetizer was ok. It was dry and lacked flavor. The slices of bread that came with it were hard, I try biting and my tooth was hurting. Caesar salad had too much dressing that tasted too much like mayo so i would not order again. Steak was great. Chicken parmigiana was not good! We ended up not eating it and didn’t care to take the leftovers.
I was disappointed with the food and service and will not be returning. There are a lot of other restaurants in the area to choose from.

Had two entrees for dinner, low food quality/taste. Burger at lunch very undercooked. I think it's the monopoly situation, lack of dining options. They don't have to be good. Server was good though.

Celebrated a birthday out with 4 friends. Excellent service and enjoyed the patio seating on the nice, warm Chicago evening. We had a few appetizers to begin along with salads afterwards. None of them were that unusual but nicely prepared and presented. Steaks all arrived at the table as ordered along with the ordered sides that can easily be shared by four. As with most steak houses, not inexpensive, but we felt it was priced accordingly.
