So quiet. Like a combination of a library with a funeral home . Everyone super nice and service great, BUT almost empty and no ambiance.

Wait staff seems overwhelmed, even though they were not that busy. Thankfully the manager came over to assist. Food is excellent, ambiance is amazing. However at the end of the night, a different manager came over to take our credit card and added a $25 item for the 837 membership, which I am ALREADY a member of. Did he really think he could slip that past me? That was really shady and ruined the evening. Other than that, I will come back - I will just make sure that one manager doesn't touch our bill.

Great food - steak, Italian, huge lobsters for dinner. Attentive service. Fun atmosphere, caricature cartoon walls, not at all stuffy. Not cheap but competitive prices with other top steak places. We really enjoyed it and will return.

First time with Mark as our waiter. Mark is what you are looking for in a fine dining setting. Attentive when needed, good personality, knowledgeable of their wine selection, and personally handled the serving of shared dishes to make sure everyone got what they wanted.

Food was impeccable as always. This is an overlooked fine steakhouse in Houston, probably because it’s an older established place not from here and a little bit outside the galleria and inner loop areas. Don’t ignore it. Burgers at lunch are the best in the city. I’ve had arguments with friends until they try them.

We truly enjoyed our second trip there! Although the waiter was attentive, we did feel a little more rushed due to the frequency of table visits, but we still enjoyed our time. As always the food was amazing. Thank you for the special attention to my friends birthday.

Went on Saturday night. Two people, two appetizers, one 9 oz. filet, one veal marsala, no drinks, no wine, no dessert = $150. Filet was a piece of charcoal, burned to a crisp outside, dry and pink inside. Even A-1 sauce couldn't save it. Veal marsala was, well, just veal marsala. All in all, way overpriced, poorly cooked, and just not worth $150. For that kind of money we could have gone to Pappa's Steakhouse down the street and had a way better meal.

We always enjoy restaurant month , because it gives us the opportunity to try new places. This was definitely a great choice and will be back regardless of restaurant week. Servers were spot on and dinner was flavorful and cooked to perfection. I had the Bone in Rib eye and my wife had the Fillet Mignon.

I might recommend it for Restaurant Week but overall I think it is overrated. The food was good but didn't meet our expectations. The salad taste was "vinegar" and while I like vinegar, it was the only thing we tasted. The chichen parmesan was pretty bland with very little seasonings. A companion had the lobster bisque and it was not good at all. Overall, they didn't win us over to return.

I had a very sad looking and tasting steak. My brother who ordered the same steak had a perfect steak. It looked like a completely different type of steak. The apps and desserts were delicious. We were in a hurry to get back to work so I didn’t send my steak back but I should have. I really dislike making a fuss over food. If it wasn’t at hrw prices I definitely would have sent it back. Everything else was really good.

Went for a family birthday celebration. We have been several times, the service Friday night was extremely poor. What was also bothersome was watching the servers move food from one plate to another prior to serving it to the guests at the table next to us. It will be a long time before we return.

Awesome experience from the moment we entered the door. We were greeted by Leslie, Brian, and Valentina with welcoming smiles.

Our server, Dario, could not have been more pleasant, attentive, and professional.

We felt like we knew everyone for years.

Our first time at the Houston Palm and it was like we were regulars.

We will be back the next time in town.

We went to The Palm for Houston Restaurant Week. The food was great and so was the service.
It was a little noisy.
