 (Chicago)·Dined on October 15, 2017

Not the standard of the other Palm restaurants (I have been to a few). Did not have attentive service, our order was wrong in 3 different ways (not at all a complex order/ i.e. Straight off the menu). They were out of creamed spinach, which was a bummer. We also caught a strange amount of attitude from our server. Food was overall just okay, steaks were good, lobster was overcooked and dry, whipped potatoes were undercooked (had hard potato chunks in them). The place was filled with people coming from sporting events wearing Jerseys, shorts, hats, etc. If you are looking for a prime steakhouse in the area, try somewhere else.

I ordered a medium rare steak and another person at our table ordered medium. The restaurant mixed up our orders (this is the second time in as many visits that this has happened). In addition, the "medium rare" was very "rare."

My husband ordered the tuna - completely uncooked and unacceptable. Was supposed to be medium rare.

The bread service was run of the mill, no special breads and no explanation about what was in the basket. The waitress was very good. The food service was bad.

A $400 dinner that was underwhelming. They won't get our business again - we will try Flemings around the corner. Shame on us for giving The Palm a second chance. Two strikeouts - there won't be a third.

Really good steak dinner. My wife and I shared the Porterhouse. She likes filet and I like NY strip. You get both in the Porterhouse and don’t have any leftovers. Porterhouse is $69 so it’s a bargain. Go for it.

Service by Marietta was impeccable. However, the ambiance was rather gloomy, probably on account that it was early in the evening (6:00 pm). As far as I could see, there were only two more tables occupied during the time I was at the restaurant. My steak (18 oz NY) was overcooked and rather dry, although the 1/2 3 lb. lobster was excellent. Although I have been a loyal Palm fan for many years, I am beginning to develop a preference for other chain steakhouses, such as Morton's, Ruth Chris or Wolfgang's.

A very disappointing meal. This was their Lobster Day Special, but the lobsters were pre-boiled and then grilled to mask the assembly line preparation. My wife and I have always felt lobsters at the Palm were the gold standard - this did not meet or come close to their usual preparation. I have been going to the Palm (in various cities) since 1966, but felt very let down by this meal. Additionally, there was almost no dressing on the Caesar salad, and the famed onion ring/cottage fries loaf was lukewarm when served.
Service at the table was good, but I don't believe they ever got the application of gift cards our friends had applied correctly.

We had an early dinner so there was few others the restaurant yet because of the staff it was plenty loud. They must have been having a great time because I was not offered a 2nd beer after finishing my first (not that I wanted one) but we also never got a refill on waters! The food was high priced but no where near expectations. I received a rare steak after ordering medium.

 (Austin)·Dined on September 16, 2017

Our waiter and staff, and everyone we encountered from the minute we walked in, and even after we walked out the door, were extremely gracious. I loved the wedge salad and the suggested wine (a Cabernet) was excellent. Was slightly disappointed with my lobster tail, but the filet was exquisite and perfectly cooked. Was sad that they had run out of the smaller surf-and-turf entree special since we got there at 6:00 pm and it seemed that should not have run out yet. Wonderful cheesecake dessert. Loved the touch of the hot towels and lemon to help with the lobster-fingers. Great location for nightlife in LA. Oh yes, and our waiter also helped us find fun things to do nearby as he recommended some nightlife spots. Thanks!

We have been eating at the palm for over 40 years and are members of their frequent dining program. We usually go to the lacations in Las Vegas, Beverly Hills and New York. We wanted to try the downtown L.A. location, as we had tickets to a concert at Staples. The ambiance is great! The server was okay, not very friendly, but we weren't there to make friends. We did get in and get out, so we were on time for the concert. Our favorite dish is the veal parmigiana and although I read a bad review here about it, I didn't listen and ordered it. We explained to the waiter that we read a bad teview about the veal, but he insisted that it would be wonderful. The veal arrived and it was terrible. Just as the previous reviewer explained, it was as tender as shoe leather. It was a huge dissppointment! We didnt have time to send it back, so we suffered through it. The waiter suggested the filet/lobster special, so we got that too. The filet was very good, but the small lobster tail was completely overcooked and hard to eat. I will never go back to this location. Management really needs to beef up quality control at this location, its really not fair to devoted customers that have come to expect a certain level of quality from the Palm.

This has been a longtime favorite of mine. But this time, the steak was mediocre. Ribeye, med-rare, but steak was a little less than warm. (I never send anything back). For the money, just was not a tasteful experience. Might give it another chance, but there are so many good restaurants in LA, not sure I want to take the gamble.

Great food and excellent service! The wait staff is very friendly, attentive, and professional. Our glasses were kept full and the food deliver hot and prepared to perfection. We not had a bowl of lobster bisque which the pour into the bowl at your table. It is absolutely delicious and maybe the best we've ever had. The lobster was so good! The filet was outstanding, tender and cooked just as ordered! The 3 cheese Potatoes Au Gratin are so tasty. The restaurant is an easy couple block walk from the LA Live area and it's a great place to dine before going to an event.

The only negative comment is directed at the corporate office and not this Palm in particular. I had received several emails from corporate saying they had a lobster special through August 31st. This Palm had ended there special several weeks earlier. On the email in very small print is a list of "participating" locations (of which this one isn't listed), but really corporate. Nice teaser ad!
