Loved the Lamb chop but only got 2 small pieces but very good. You would think for the price a 3rd piece would be in order.

An incredible meal. The NY strip a la might be the best steak I have ever had. A bit pricy but you can taste the value in every bite. Second time there and we’ll go again soon.

We dined early (5:30pm) on a Sunday following a Lakers game and were somewhat surprised at how empty it felt. To be fair, this was during the Corona Virus crisis. However, our food and service were very good as we expected. Nothing overwhelming or unusual to report. I feel like steakhouses are very similar. This one seemed to have a nice variety. For example, my wife enjoyed the veal marsala. However, I found the room to be somewhat dated and old school. The overall quality was good, but at steakhouse prices. I would return.

We were seated at the time of the reservation. Service was great, attentive waitress, very nice. The food was very good.
Only disappointment was that my wife wanted the Braised Short Rib for her main meal. Waitress returned to tell us they had run out. So she ordered a Filet Mignon steak that was very good!
Overall a great dinner experience. We will go back.

Had a quick dinner here on a Saturday night while visiting LA for a convention. It is very close and within walking distance to the convention center/ staples stadium. The menu is typical for a steakhouse, although I found it limited if you do not want steak. The dining room is a large open room that was rather noisy, although not unbearable. Service and food were good, albeit nothing exceptional. My spouse had a tender filet with lobster truffle butter. It was cooked perfectly and was very very tasty. I tried a pasta dish with crab and spinach in a light lemon-butter sauce. It was ok, but I would advise sticking with steak in this steakhouse! We had a pumpkin creme brûlée that was good but was served at too cold a temperature, ie flambé on the top but very cold in the middle. Overall not bad if craving a good steak while in LA, but there are definitely better restaurants in the area.

The downtown LA Palm has been "our place" for nearly 15 years - and it's undergone a positive transformation since Dmitri Fagel took the helm as manager. Palm has been part of our family since our roots in New York, with practically every special occasion and gathering being set at either Palm or Palm Too. In fact, there are only four locations we haven't been to (yet). For those that "used to go" to the DTLA location but stopped because there were management challenges, staffing challenges, and ambiance issues - that's ALL BEEN RESOLVED. The DTLA Palm merits (again) consistently high marks for food quality, attentiveness, and service that aligns with loyalty. Go often. Go hungry.

So disappointed. Have eaten at the Palm in Beverly Hills and in D.C and always solid. Here however very disappointed. Food was average at best. Def not worth the price of what was once a great steakhouse.

It was a birthday dinner. Our food took forever, we wait an hour for dinner. When it finally came the pasta was bland, The salad wasnt good either. And they couldn’t even bring out a small cake for my friend? For her birthday? This was the lousiest service I’ve had in LA! Just horrible it was not worth the money! I definitely do not recommend this place! Such a Bad experience! It ruined a special evening! I recommend not to go here

Food and wine were outstanding. Our waiter was an older gentleman who couldn't quite keep up with the 12 of us...he wasn't bad, just was a bit slower & never poured our wines for us when we had empty glasses. They probably should have had 2 waiters/waitresses for our table.
