The palm used to be my favourite for many years but after a hiatus, I must confess it left a lot to be desired. I had the ribeye which was over cooked and tough . Fries were reheated . Wine price was reasonable for a Malbec. The place used to be the place to have dinner, see and be seen . Last Tuesday 11/12 , it was virtually empty during prime time . It has to be due a dramatic drop in quality .i am so disappointed!

The Palm is a phenomenal restaurant that across all of its locations stands for a supreme dining experience. This location deserves more attention.

Great steak, great sides, wedge salad could have used more bacon, could have skipped the chocolate cake - not worth the extra calories. Our server was awesome, hostess brought us two flutes of champagne for our anniversary. Definitely will go back again

We really enjoyed out dinner at The Palm and try to get back as much as possible. Great service and this time we didn’t have steaks...we both tried Italian veal dishes and thought they were great! People might just think of The Palm for Steaks but so much more on the menu for everyone.

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.
