When I eat at The Palm, I expect a certain experience. This location was far below what I would expect. The service was below expectation. The ambiance was below expectation. The food was average. My wife and I both cook The Palm filet at home better than it was prepared at this location. This location seemed to cater to the tourist level of food. I expect more from The Palm. This locations manager needs to go to Houston and see what I am talking about. Good Luck!

Everything was perfect. The bacon appetizer was amazing. Caesar salad was just okay and a bit overpriced. The bone marrow infused steak was delicious as were the crab cakes. We will definitely be back!

Ezra was absolutely phenomenal! His service and attention to detail was beyond expectations. The food was equally exceptional; the fillet, cooked to perfection and the sea bass done to the pallet’s delight.

I wanted a place to enjoy dinner on my own, close to my hotel, without any drama. The Palm provided just what I needed. I enjoyed their lobster bisque, which is always a favorite of mine. I also had the baby kale salad, which had a lemon vinaigrette. The portion was generous, and the greens were tasty and fresh; then I enjoyed the small portion of their garlic whipped potatoes, which were definitely garlicky. Yum! They have Moët and Chandon champagne by the glass, which was a nice complement to the meal.

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary and it was a beautiful evening. Food was excellent. Lobster bisque was perfectly seasoned and John’s wedge salad was a masterpiece! His filet and my strip steak were cooked perfectly.
Service was beyond reproach - friendly but not overbearing.
Quiet and romantic. A truly lovely evening. Thank you!

The attention to detail not up to par that night for a high end restaurant. Server forgot about us for a good 15 min before I had to flag him down to get us water and remind him of our request for bread. The mushroom risotto was plain and unremarkable. The filets were good, but took my wife three times to get to a medium plus. The manager was nice and asked about our experience afterwards.

We have been hearing about the Palm for many years and were finally able to visit for an anniversary dinner. I must admit, we were a bit disappointed - Food was good, but not fantastic. I had the large filet and it was pretty disappointing. Not the greatest cut of meat. One should not have large areas of gristle in a $50+ cut of meat. Other reviews and comments seem to reflect that they may currently be in a management transition and in a bit of disarray. This would certainly explain our less than stellar experience.
We won't be hurrying back...

The palm is always a great place to dine. The gm Mr Sanchez will greet you and has you feel as you are family. Last nights dinner was fantastic, I had a new server. His name was Alejandro. Alejandro was just amazing. His attention to detail and quickness from making sure the food was perfect to our wine glass or water never became empty. Tho Alejandro is a little soft spoken he will charm you with his service. What we absolutely loved about him was he was not overbearing he was present but we never noticed it because he knows exactly when and how to approach the table with out ruining conversations. Rosa and I had a magnificent night and think I was cause of the management and the wonderful service of Alejandro.

That you,
Arnie Lopez.

My Filet Mignon was delicious as always and even though they were extremely busy due to it being Valentine's Day Friday the service was great, our waitstaff Kayla, Jacob and Isabel gave us excellent service. My favorite restaurant when I go to the theater and I get to have dessert after the performance.

We came here after my daughter’s graduation from Air Force BMT. The tuna appetizer was so delicious. My steak was cooked well and the sides were also very good. The history of the restaurant was also intriguing. Our server was amazing. He was knowledgeable, accommodating, and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

I WOULD NOT BE RETURNING TO THAT RESTAURANT, THE STAFF WAS VERY GOOD, I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH MY $48 FILET MIGNON STEAK, THATS SUPPOSE TO BE THE SOFTEST STEAK, AND MY WIFE AND I HAD A HARD TIME CUTTING INTO THAT RUBBERY PIECE OF MEAT THAT WAS SERVED TO US. THE SIDES WERE GREAT, IT WAS JUST THAT STEAK THAT WAS A BIG LET DOWN FOR US.

I selected The Palms because it had options other than steak. I had the veal martini which was delicious; my wife had the bacon wrapped scallops which she shared with me. The scallops were moist and nicely flavored by the bacon. I learned that there are three Palms restaurants in Manhattan and plan to visit one the next time I am visiting New York City.
