I went there tonight to celebrate my soon to be son in laws birthday, with my daughter and my wife. The server was fine. The drinks took awhile to come which seemed weird since we were there at 6:30 and pretty quiet. I mentioned to our server that we had a birthday and I put that down on open table when I made the reservation. Food was good my my wife’s medium filet was very dry. She requested bernaise which we had to ask for twice. Still her steak was dry she complained and it was taken off the bill. After our dinner we waited while I thought some sort of dessert would come. I wasn’t expecting a freebe however nothing came. All in all just a fair experience and after coming here for years it was well below what I’ve come to expect from the Palm.

The Palm is an old-style chop house with terrific character. The steaks are fantastic, as was the special salad we split and all the sides (garlic mashed potatoes, gorgeous green beans). The wine list--particularly by the glass, is estimable. Service is good, though one of our two waiters was a bit more clued in than the other. But really no complaint.
Compared to Pappas I would say that the Palm is about a half a notch less accomplished overall; comparable food but not anywhere near as polished in service.

My wife and I have been going to the Houston Palm, and Palms in other cities, for 38 years. We go 2-4 times per year on special occasions. We always order lobsters and while pricey, they are a special treat for us both. Most of our visits to the Palm have been to the Houston location since we are part time residents of Houston. The food and service has always been excellent and we shall continue our tradition of making the Palm our destination restaurant for special occasions.

I have always LOVED the Palm-but the food was terrible. There were 7 of us and dinner included 2 steaks--they were not edible. Also food was cold and brussel sprouts came instead of spinach. Chips/onions were stale. VERY EXPENSIVE for poor food and they forgot my husbands birthday which I had previously requested. This was a shock as we have been there many times and had excellent food and service. My husband said he would never go back--I would like too as everyone deserves a second chance? Very disappointed!

Nobody in Houston does lobster like the Palm. Our double steak was perfectly aged and cooked. Their take on potatoes is also as good as anything in town( tha hash browns and half &half ) and the NY cheesecake truely authentic. This place is like Carrabba’s- they do everything very well for the right price and our expert food critics don’t notice or don’t understand.

Experience was very good overall. Wine we selected was not available (might want to do a check of vintages available against wine list and adjust pricing accordingly) but manager provided us a good alternative at the same price point. Enjoyed the ambiance and décor. We will definitely come back again.

I’m a fairly regular patron.
We came in for lobster.
I was told there were 5 5lb lobsters in the back.
We ordered 1 and were told sorry they’re all spoken for...
The service was way off and we were less than impressed.
We travel in from Montgomery so to have this type service was a total let down.
