    We’ve been longtime patrons of The Palm for many decades. We visit in nearly city we travel to. This meal did not hit the mark of the Palms. The server stated that he only had two 3lb lobsters and several 1.5lbs, which was odd as they typically had lobsters of many size. The lobster texture was not on par either, the claw was shriveled up and the tail was squishy and fishy tasting. I suspect the lobster was not live and fresh. Furthermore, the $16 hash brown was watery and mushy. I think it was frozen. Steaks were overly salted, which was also unusual. The entire meal just was not to Palm standards.

    We were seated in a nice booth immediately. The food was excellent and the portions substantial. The server Tomas was extremely attentive. The maitre de came over several times to check and was very personable. The prices were reasonable for a fine meal. My wife’s wine was superb. A superior experience in all respects

    So we had a 10PM reservation. We arrived a few minute early and the place was relatively empty. We were seated on the bar area. Upon seating we were informed that we had to order immediately because the kitchen was closing momentarily. We arrested baked clams which were very good. The main course was steak, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Our meals arrived and we noted that there was no creamed spinach. The waiter then told us it was not available and offered no substitute because the kitchen was closed. One of my guests asked for addition bread for the table and he was informed that it was unavailable because the kitchen was closed. The food was good, the drinks were well prepared but the customer service was terrible amd frankly rude. They should not allow 10PM reservations if the kitchen closes at 10. It just makes no sense at all. I eat in Palms all over the country and this is the first that was a disappointment.

    Everything we ordered was delicious. We had the pappardelle pasta, bone-in ribeye, fries, black truffle gnocchi, hash browns and key lime pie for dessert. All of the food was prepared and seasoned very well. The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived. The valet Larry greeted us and he and everyone took great care of us. We will definitely be back.

    My husband steak was not cooked to order-rare they cooked well and was dry. I asked for some sautéed mushrooms to go on top of steak was brought a huge dish of sautéed mushrooms was told it would be taken off order and it wasn’t. Husband paid before I checked the bill. Bread was old and hard.

    The food was good, but in no way remarkable for a higher-end steak house. They were out of several menu items. The service was quite good and the views of Navy Pier were nice. The prices were too high for food that wasn't excellent.
