The Palm Chicago Ratings and Reviews
The server was very good. The food was disappointing. Filet was over cooked and not charred. It was a light gray on outside. Brussels sprouts were undercooked and crunchy. The Palm salad was under dressed and was almost all palm hearts. I could not complain because I was at a business dinner and would not want to embarrass my guests. Thankfully the server did not ask about the food. When I checked with my colleague (who is an 837 Club member and recommended we go to your restaurant) after dinner she had the same complaints, and also that the creamed spinach was all cream and that this experience was nothing like the exceptional food and service at the NYC Palm locations.
Decor is very outdated. The paint on the wall of our booth was chipping & dirty. The lampshade was filthy. My halibut was over cooked. My husband's Wagyu was good but not great. The mushroom soup was very good, as was the bacon appetizer. Our waiter was very accommodating & friendly. He comped our desserts on account of the halibut... which was very nice. Key lime pie & creme brûlée were very good.
I came to Chicago on a work trip and stayed in the Swissotel with my group. This was my first trip to the Palm restaurant and will definitely return. I had a special that was not listed on the menu that consisted of a petite filet mignon and a lobster tail. It was superb and cooked just the way I ordered, which seems to be difficult sometimes. The food was fantastic. The wine list is quite extensive so I had my colleague pick out a nice red and we were very pleased with the Duckhorn Merlot, and was fairly priced. Lastly, service. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and very sweet. After asking me if it was my first time, she went over the entire menu and answered all the questions that I had patiently. When the food came out, we had 3 servers bringing out plates and serving the sides, which was really a nice touch. Overall food and service was fantastic and very accommodating, I will definitely be back.
We were here to celebrate my dad's 70th. A group of 10 - all ages. The Palm was perfect. At our request We were given a table on the back so we felt like we had a private room. Everyone could hear and visit. The good was great. The service was impeccable. Ruben our waiter is an attentive professional!
The food was very good but the service was mediocre. The wait staff were rather cool and distant, almost as if we were interrupting their evening plans by being there. We will not make any effort to return based on this experience. There are some fabulous restaurants in Chicago and our other dining experiences, ( Benny's Chophouse and Mon Ami Gabi; as well as some casual places) were truly outstanding overall compared to our night at The Palm.
We have eaten several dinners at The Palm, especially on my birthday . We enjoy the summer 4 pound lobster special, although last year we sat at our table only to be informed that there was no lobster. This time we had lobster. We could have used more help getting the meat out of the shell. The salads and lobster bisque and fried potato/onion combo were great. The creamed spinach was mostly cream sauce. The chocolate cake was ordinary and right out of the fridge. Our waiter had to be reminded about our bread basket and our ice cream.
While in Chicago for a Business Conference, we chose The Palm due to it's location within the Swissotel where we were staying. The steak was cooked to perfection and the Crab Cakes were "to die for" as my wife says. This was a pricey meal, but well worth it.
We visit Chicago every couple of months. Happened to be there the week of our 50th wedding anniversary and decided to try The Palms for one of the several dinners we had out during our week long celebration. Food was excellent. Service was great. Adam our server was very friendly and professional. Hostess welcomed us when we arrived and wished us a happy anniversary. Adam also wished us a happy anniversary and gave us an anniversary card from the staff. Complimentary fabulous dessert from the restaurant to help us celebrate. A totally delightful evening thanks to the great food, and very friendly and attentive staff. Energetic environment with lots of people enjoying themselves in the bar area as well as in the restaurant. Our first visit but we will definitely return
I was disappointed in my recent visit to The Palm. The sumptuous delicious bread was replaced by slices of a nondescript white bread baguette. The salad was filled with pieces of greens which were well past their consumed by date. I had to parcel out pieces of inedible salad. The lobster was quite tasty but a little bit tough. Something I have never experienced before at The Palm.
The wait staff was helpful and pleasant; although a little bit over-the-top in an almost patronizing fashion. The half-and-half and asparagus were excellent as always.
I enjoyed the meal but it wasn't up to my expectations from my numerous visits over the years.
The Palm never fails to disappoint. From the manager's warm greeting at the door, to the final goodbye, there is no other Chicago steakhouse--and there are few other Chicago restaurants at sub-stratospheric prices--that provide such attentive, high-quality service. Plus, the Power Lunch is, in my view, the best lunch deal in the city (with choices that include what are inarguably the best caesar salad and best chicken parmigiana in the city). A++++
Started out as the 2 of us celebrating the closing of the sale of our suburban house. Added 6 friends who were "in the area" after a Cubs game. Staff handled the additional people as true troopers and professionals. Great service (fun staff) and great food. We had the outdoor patio to ourselves which didn't hurt. We'll be back.
