    We told our waitperson we had tickets for Diana Ross for the 7pm show at the Majestic and they had us well fed and on our way with time to spare! Thank you wonderful staff at the Palm!

    We had a 7:30pm reservation as we were attending a 9:30pm show. After 1:45 minutes they finally brought out the entree and they were then snarky when we asked to please box it and we'd pick it up after the show. "Oh now you want it to go was the comment." Well no, I wanted it before the show which starts in 15 minutes. They never offered to comp the dinner, buy us a drink, just brought the check. SO VERY DISAPPOINTED, however, our waitress was lovely and felt terrible.

    They took an hour to bring our food. My Wagyu 7oz filet was overcooked. Paid our bill left tip and left. After 20years of loving The Palm sadly I won’t return. Disappointing all around.

    We have been to the Palm numerous times and everything was impeccable. Not this time. The service was excellent, but the food was terrible. My sea bass was undercooked and my husband's chicken parmaesean was burnt. We won't go back. At there price point, there are numerous better choices in the downtown area.

    My wife and I have always enjoyed the Palm. We were a bit apprehensive about the change in ownership. This last year our visit was somewhat bumpy but this visit was much better. We had a filet and the garlic butter shrimp with linguine. Both were prepared well. The side of asparagus fitti was perfect. The only suggestion would be to offer more salad options as they were limited. Service was excellent. Good wine list. We will certainly return.

    As always Eric is an awesome server! I ordered the lobster raviloi and it was not so great. Tasted like it was covered in flavorless tomato paste. On the upside, I had a fabulous wedge salad prior to the ravioli so I was full enough to dismiss the tasteless ravioli.

    Food was not what worth what there price was. Steaks were bland and charred. Mashed potatoes no flavor just mashed and topped with parsley. Lobster was ordered and was bland no flavor or even cooked with garlic and butter over cooked as well. Service took long forgot what we asked for half the time.

    My wife got a raw steak, our sides were cold and when we sent them back they never came back, forgot a few menu items. Server was very sweet but the food was absolutely awful. My steak felt like it had been washed in a salt bath for 20 hours.

    Went to The Palm for our anniversary. Our granddaughter and husband were in town to announce to us they are expecting their first baby and our 5 great grandchild. Love The Palm because of the outstanding seafood and perfectly cooked steaks. The drinks were excellent and always a bottle of wine with meal Located in the heart of San Antonio with the Majestic theatre across the street. Service outstanding

    We sat at the bar because we were heading to a show. The bartender was attentive. I ordered the fried shrimp and fries. The shrimp was delicious. The fries had a good taste but were a tad limp and soggy. My husband had salad (we shared the fries) The bill was over $100 but we expect that at a higher end restaurant. It was a good experience and we love the location and valet parking which is why we will go back.

    Great experience as usual! My shrimp cocktail was delicious! I requested additional horse radish for mine and they brought immediately! My steak was perfect! I like lightly crispy edges with medium on the inside! Totally delish! I used my extra horse radish with sour cream to eat with my steak although it actually needed nothing extra! I like my fritters well done! Perfect!!! Crispy outside and soft inside! The tiramisu was a perfect size and flavor!!!

    Food was mediocre, service was bad and the waiter decided to tell us it was because they were short staffed. Dessert was sub par, tiramisu was hard, cheesecake was not great either. Not as good experience as last time.

    Our service and food was impeccable! It was just disappointing that our birthdays were not acknowledged as my guest and I were both celebrating the occasion within a few days of each other. I put it in on the Open Table reservation. We had gone in the past and they brought a birthday dessert without even mentioning as they had from all the other previous years. Perhaps it was because we ordered off of Restaurant Week menu?

    It was a great evening out for dinner. The Palm and the service was great! It is hard to pay for a steak and then have to pay another $20 for a side. Everything was delicious but it will be only a special occasion spot because of price.

    This was a great dining experience. The waiter recognize that we were going to the majestic for a show she put in our drink orders quickly and was back in a flash with some food recommendations. The serving sizes were great. I wasn’t able to eat all of my food because we were in a hurry, but I would love to go back as what I did eat was very delicious.

    It started well in the beginning but then as the night progressed, it was such a bad experience. For paying 300 dollars, the food was bad. Also everyone around us was getting their food. We waited almost an hour and a half for the food. Will never go there again.

    We had a reservation for 4 people. I called to see if we could increase our reservation to 5 people. I was told they could not add a seat to our table. When we arrived we were seated a table set for 5 people so we could have included our guests daughter. Terribly embarrassing situation. The food was good but the service was very slow. Over 3 hours start to finish. Would not recommend going on holidays.
