Went for a turkey dinner and I felt the turkey was not a fresh turkey but a processed one. Very disappointed and will not go back.

The Palm has a great lunch menu - it’s not crowded at lunch time. Staff and management always great. We’ve tried all of the power lunch items and all are delicious.

They seemed understaffed. Several tables came in after us and were served before us. Steaks were over cooked.

As always, the food was perfect, excellent, fabulous in every way, Kenneth, our server, was the best. Too bad that the corona virus has business so low, but fully expect this to change around soon ... The Palm remains a GO TO place for us and is always great and never disappoints.

We love the manager, Leslie, who is very personable and always comes by the table. Unfortunately, it’s obvious that Fertitta doesn’t want to keep this restaurant open. The limited menu, food AND wine is, well, VERY limited. I cannot imagine trying to operate a high end steak house with the wine list that’s available. I think, unless I’m in NYC, there’s no need for me to return to The Palm. Being run by Landry’s is an unfortunate turn of events.
I will recommend because I like the staff so much.

Unfortunately it seems the restaurant was understaffed and service was not as good as usual.

My steak was closer to medium rare than the requested rare and the Half and Half was served barely warm. Again, not up to expectations!

If you are looking for nice outdoor dining, this is not the place. The outdoor area is next to a cigar shop and there is nothing you can do about the nasty cigar smell permeating your nostrils. Not the outdoor dining experience we had in mind.

Invited in-laws for their wedding anniversary. We ate lunch during Houston restaurant weeks. The lobster bisque was delicious. My sister in-law gave the broiled salmon a "super good" rating.

Everything was wonderful as usual. They had a great live singer in the bar, we first debated if it was live or not and realized it was live and was very impressed. Not too loud and the selection he sang was very enjoyable.

I am so upset at how our experience turned out.

The floor beneath our feet was so dirty. I received a glass of water with lipstick stains on it. I had gnats roaming around our food which was uncomfortable for us to eat around. My steak was medium rare when i asked for medium. overall, i will not be returning to this supposed fine establishment. service was great, but we would have to try to grab their attention everytime.

Went for HRW. My husband ordered the surf and turf, which was supposed to be a filet?!? Not what he got. It was not a filet, though flavorful it was a tough piece of meat with little bits of what i think was lobster on it. I ordered off the menu and my food was wonderful. I had the wedge salad and the shrimp appetizer. The shrimp were HUGE and so tasty. I feel like they brought out the cheaper cut for HRW which to me is disappointing.

Service was good but not up to Palm standards. Had to request amenities that are usually standard. Ie. Hot towel/lemon. Too much like Landry’s not enough like the Palm.

We haven’t been o The Palm in years. We took advantage of HRW to take my sister and brother-in-law. It was awesome! The food was fabulous, cocktails were great, and the service was excellent!! My filet mignon was cooked perfectly; everyone’s food was perfect. We’ll definitely be back!!

We ordered the NY strip, medium rare. It was grisly with a lot of portions that were unchewable. We should have said something but it was getting late and we were hungry enough that we ate the majority of it. Service was ok. Not stellar; we adjusted for Covid factor in our rating.

We came because my wife wanted the lobster roll. It was delicious. I chose the Grilled Chicken Cobb salad entree, which was perfect. We both had the Lobster Bisque, which was also delicious. We were there around 1:30, so no crowds (only 2-3 other tables occupied). We had a nice, quiet lunch and enjoyed the ambience of this fine restaurant.

FABULOUS! I've lived here 11 years and I can't believe my husband and I have never dined here especially since it's been around for years! EVERYTHING was 5 stars; food, service, ambiance! I'm so happy Houston Restaurant Weeks featured this Restaurant and is why we visited. We will be returning very soon and look forward to enjoying some of their regular menu items.

We decided to try this restaurant during Houston’s Restaurant Week. If you have tried Eddie V’s or Vic & Anthony’s the steak at this place doesn’t compare. The mashed potatoes was kinda bland. The lobster pieces that came on top of the steak was over cooked, causing it to be dry. The lobster bisque was by far my favorite course.

Our waiter was very poor. We waited forever to get service. There was no excuse since the restaurant was not very busy. We also wanted to take our creamed spinach home and he forgot to put it in our to go bag and we had so much leftover 😥

From the anniversary card on the table to the general manager seating us and finding out that we were all from Pennsylvania, it was a great dining experience. Favorite place to celebrate!
