We ordered 3 filets total and 2 of them were over cooked and the third was cooked well but in general there was a lack of overall flavor.

I miss the old Palm. Nothing says 50$+ steak and 100$ wine like UFC fighting on the big screen next to our table. Steaks were okay but not top class steakhouse. Service was very slow. Sat over our salads for a half hour. Finally flagged down waitress who brought lukewarm entrees. I guess ownership is going after the next generation but they have lost me in the process. Too bad.

In Chicago from Dallas. The Palm in Dallas closed after 30 years. When I saw this in Chicago it was a must. Awesome food. Michael was a great wait person

Our server Mike was great, but the menu prices were so ridiculous they bordered on hilarious. The Chilean Sea Bass filet was a slab of bass on a plate with a small pile of oily spinach. $47. No garnish, no interesting spices, no thought to presentation. We weren't a group of red meat eaters but good thing --the beef selections were equally ridiculously priced.

Last night I treated myself to dinner and had the pleasure of having Thomas as my server. He was so kind and attentive, and when I had one item I didn’t like he took it away and took care of that charge. I often find that being a very small woman who frequently dines out alone, servers don’t always take the time with me that I notice they will with other tables. That was certainly not the case with Thomas, he was absolutely wonderful. I also really appreciated that I was seated at a larger table, rather than the typical “single person” table in the corner, that made me feel so much more valued right from the start. I love seafood, and I ordered several seafood appetizers and treated the night like a little tapas meal, and I was not disappointed. With the exception of the one dish I didn’t like that Thomas took care of, everything was delicious. I highly recommend the fresh Oysters and scallops, and I was so pleased to have the last of the chefs special mussels since mussels are my favorite! This was my first time eating at The Palm but certainly won’t be my last, I had a lovely time and meal that wasn’t too heavy, and so incredibly fresh! Thank you to Thomas for helping me to have a lovely evening.

I was excited to try it. The food was great, the service was on point. However the ambiance and overall feel of the place didn’t match the level of exquisiteness reflected on the menu prices. The staff is incredibly friendly. I probably won’t return though.

Service was impeccable. One of the best lunch time servers I have ever had , and I work in Hospitality.

Timing and pacing of drinks, apps, entree and coffee was completely on point. The food was very good.

My only complaint is that when I approached the host stand , the gentleman asked me if I was looking for UPS.. I was wearing tan capris and an embroidered navy top, so maybe the tan pants threw him off. I was unsettled about it , but he recovered when I told him no UPS, I have a reservation with a friend l. So that was a dark cloud on an otherwise really good lunching experience

My steak was perfect but my friends steak was underdone.
My steak was center cut filet and may have been the best I have had in memory.
