    We had a party of 9 for a fiftieth birthday party and made a reservation about 30 minutes prior to arriving. The Palm had us seated on time; the service was excellent at a time when that is rare at most restaurants. The food was all perfectly cooked, and our out of town guests were very impressed. I highly recommend The Palm!

    Portion of creamed spinach was served in a dish much smaller then the past. Not much value out of that order. Creamed spinach needs to be served in a larger dish as in the past.

    Other than a disappointment with the Steakhouse Wedge salad, and to our preference, we would have left the white beans slightly longer cooking (they were a little hard, but very savory, would be great in a soup), everything else was on point. It was our anniversary and both management and our server (Dennis) where trying their best for us to have a superb experience. So much so, that our salad and deserts we're on the house. From the ambient set to a candlelight dinner, to the suggestion of both of our reds for a perfect pairing, to the restaurant even though they closed at 10:00PM, staying open for us until 11:30PM when we left, we would definitely recommend The Palm to everyone we know. Steak cooked to perfection, going the extra mile to set water to boiled for a new plate of pasta (keep in mind the restaurant shuts the kitchen down at 10), you made it easy for us to enjoy our anniversary in a quite, and pleasant atmosphere. Next time we will not reserve the 9:45PM time slot, you deserve better than that, and we would love to see, how's the experience with the benefits of not having the kitchen down. Thank you Dennis, and I'm sorry we're forgetting the Manager's name, but him too, and the guys in the kitchen for bearing with us and making an experience worth to remember and want to go through again. We will see each other again next time we're in town. Till then, have a wonderful time doing what you do best, take care. Sincerely: Mr. & Mrs. Tirado-Herrera

    Arrived one hour and forty five minutes before our show across the street at the Majestic theater. We immediately informed the waiter of our time requirements. So they managed to take an hour to get the first item out, thus creating anxiety about getting done on time and pretty much ruining the enjoyment of the meal. The class were mediocre, over cooked, small and topped with little burned pieces of bacon. However the Ora King salmon was delicious. Waiter was friendly but inefficient.

    First time at The Palm got off to a rocky start as I was not greeted by the 3 front hostesses. High end restaurants usually nail the greeting & make the guest feel welcome. My server was great and the manager apologized for the initial mishap. It is for that reason I do plan to give The Palm another chance in the near future.

    Our table ordered Sautéed Shrimp and Chicken Parmasana. The Shrimp were sautéed in a watery, tasteless sauce, lacking flavor, spices and creamy flavors. The Shrimp were large and at least eight were on the plate. The chicken parmasana was a very large, healthy serving. Had a flavourful tomato based sauce, but was average. The lemon drop, Mexican Martini, and bar drinks were the highlight of the meal.

    I have dined at the Palm for many years and always enjoyed the experience and quality food. Yesterday’s dinner was an overall underwhelming experience. One reason may be that Landry’s now own the Palm. Service was spotty and not to Palm standards of the past. My wife enjoyed her salmon but my steak was not up to par. The menu indicated that the NY Strip was prime beef but I have my doubts. I think I’ll stick to Ruth’s Chris for steak dining.

    First time at the palm, fiancé and I love splurging on fine dining experiences. We are very easy going couple not very picky so it takes a lot for me to write a negative review. First we order oysters on the half shell, our waiter was great, service was great! So the oysters come and we’re excited we love oysters they bring out all the fixings which was awesome! One of my oysters has a crab in it, a live crab. It’s alive and moving! The manager came by apologizing saying it’s only happened 3 times since he’s worked there. These things don’t bother me, we got a good laugh out of it and some entertainment for the table! Then our food comes and I was still optimistic even though the crab thing was kind of strange. My fiancé eats some of the peppercorn sauce that he ordered with the steak it tasted like pure cleaning chemicals and dish soap. I tried the tiniest amount and confirmed it filled my mouth with chemical taste it was awful. My fiancé never sends anything back but he had to tell the waiter because it was that bad. We were worried maybe they would serve it to someone else that way and wanted to let them know. So we shrugged it off no big deal. Then I found half of a yellow bell pepper in the mashed potatoes looked kind of bitten off but couldn’t tell, again strange, tried to shrug it off. Then my fiancé is eating the gnocchi side dish and pulls out a long black hair from the sauce in the gnocchi and just lays it on the table in front of me. We both just start laughing because at this point we’re like “wow we are about to drop over $100 on this meal and there’s hair in the food.” My fiancé didn’t alert the manager, we don’t like making a scene, we just paid the bill so we could leave. We tried to finish the meal asap since we lost are appetite after that. We usually order dessert at these fancy places, after all of this we didn’t. Because of all of the strange things in our food, Unfortunately we wouldn’t recommend nor return to the Palm after our experience.

We sat in the private dining room which was a perfect fit. The service was absolutely top-notch staying extremely attentive while not being invasive.

    Excellent food and service! The cold crab cocktail and shrimp risotto were outstanding. I do the Broadway Series very close by.Food is much better here than @ a Riverwalk restaurant that is similar in cost.I will be spending more time here when I go to the shows. Valet parking and being near Uber pickup spot make this ideal. Perhaps a discount or $25 coupon for those with Broadway Show tickets or free Valet parking would sweeten the pot even more. I look forward to many more delicious fine dining meals @ the Palms!

    The Palm is a classic steakhouse with a nice atmosphere. Mine and my wife’s filets were perfectly cooked to our liking. My daughter’s steak was rare when she asked for medium. Broccoli rabe was outstanding, but the hash browns were just fair. Steakhouse expensive.

    Was able to get a reservation for my business team quickly via the app. It was pretty close to closing time but we received amazing service and great food. Most ordered steaks and all raved about them. Our server was at our table constantly (but in a good way) to make sure we were happy. It was our first time in San Antonio and this restaurant blew us away. Would recommend

    Service was somewhat slow, although there appeared to be enough staff on hand. Food was warm, edible but not what you would call hot. Prices are not excessive, but adds up when you have to add pasta and other sides to the main dish. Will probably try again, convenient to the Majestic.

    We have always had great food and service at The Palm. Unfortunately that was not the case this last visit. Service was good. Food was delayed and not hot. Steak was lukewarm and the Veal was the same. Most unfortunate. We had booked our family holiday dinner here but have moved based on this experience. Based on the price you would expect more. Will give it another chance later.

    We had a interesting experience. We ordered a bottle of good wine, arugula salad, scampi, pasta with extra sausage and hashbrowns on 10/12/22. Our waiter a 5'10" thin 50 ish man(didn't get name) brought us our wine, a wonderful salad, then, our mains with a side of skillet potatoes(chopped with onions). I asked him about our hashbrowns, he said, " we don't have hasbrowns, we have never had hashbrowns". I was astonded!! My husband and I had just had dinner there in San Antonio, 5 days earlier, and we had steak and hashbrowns. Now why in the world would our waiter lie? If they were out of shredded potatoes, just tell us. He ruined an otherwise tasty meal in a nice atmosphere because, now the topic of discussion is why he lied? I had take the left over hashbrowns home, put into a labeled freezer bag and put them into our freezer. I can send a picture of them!!
