Steak was incredibly fatty and tasteless. Bill was wrong and sides were missed. Server was great, but no excuse for a non-busy night and poor food for this much money

Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable, if there was something we ask that she didn’t know, she found the answer. The ambiance was incredible, the dark mahogany woods and leather booth were impressive. By far, the food was the star of the show. I look forward to my next visit.

Crab Cake continue to be excellent. The management structure is welcoming and coalescing nicely..... through sound leadership of the executive team and will be a great model for the staff, old and new.
It was great to run into old friends/regulars and catch up at the Bar.

Food was average at best … overpriced wines. The worst part was the valet parking situation… the valets were combative and argumentative which ruined the entire dining experience.

Chose The Palm from previous experience with the one in Dallas before it closed, and it was conveniently located to our hotel. Horrible mistake. We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant was less than one fifth full. We picked a great bottle of wine and it was downhill from there. The oysters were full of shell fragments and so tiny that they shouldn’t even be on the menu. It took way too long to get the two appetizers we had ordered. They offered to bring more oysters, but they were horrible and not worth waiting to be redone. We ordered our entrees and it took over 45 mins to get them. By this time there were only 4 other tables with people in the entire restaurant. Food finally came. My steak was over cooked and the sides were cold. One side was raw and inedible. My wife didn’t eat her Chicken Shrimp Parmesan either. No flavor, the same as the steak. We would have had a better meal at Denny’s.The manager was busy with the few diners apologizing to everyone and offering free desserts to go. They offered to comp our dessert, but after not eating what was already presented, we were done. It is very apparent this place is an empty shell of what it once was. So disappointed as were most other diners tonight. I don’t mind spending money on good food and wine, but this was disgraceful. $350 for food not fit for my dog. Thanks for ruining our anniversary dinner. Never again. Close your doors if you don’t have the staff to meet any minimal standards. Disgraceful.

After an hour and fifteen minute wait our food came out. My sons burger burnt to a crisp (bun was black) and my fish was cold. Manager was amicable and said he would discount but at this point our show started in 15min and I was going to chance it. Truly disappointing as I had been talking up the great experience my son was going to have on his first night to the theater

Do not come here for dinner before going to see a show at the Majestic! They were overbooked for the staff; food was not cooked to order; and we barely made our performance. Our waiter, Caleb, was wonderful and deserves a raise as he was doing his own job and that of the managers.

First let me say the manager decided to not charge us at all for our wine and meal.
We had a dinner reservation 2-hours before the start of "The Lion King" at the Majestic Theater across the street. We ordered a glass of wine each which took 30 minutes to arrive. The meal we ordered arrived after waiting for 90-minutes. My salmon was overcooked and very dry. My white beans and broccoli were cold (no exaggeration). My wife's steak was warm but the plate was uncharacteristically cold. I took one little bite of the salmon and that was enough. I did not eat the salmon or the cold vegetables. I told the manager we had been coming to "The Palm" for 8-years (we have season tickets at the Majestic). I told him this was the second time in a row that we've had a bad experience at The Palm and we would not be coming back. The manager apologized and did not charge us for anything.

Service was on point. Food as always was “meh”. For the price / quality there are other options in town that are much better. But location and avail of valet parking to The Majestic theater is what “saves” The Palm.

The service was very friendly and helpful. Appetizers were great and we enjoyed our wine. The steak was over done but did have time to allow waitress to fix it. Better to be under done than over done. We were sat in the back room and were enjoying the ambiance until a couple came in and demanded that the football game be turned on the TV right next to where we were sitting. We love football too but did not expect to hear yelling at a TV over our $300 dinner. I suppose the TV is there for events, I'm not sure but this was unacceptable and distracting.

Our waiter Terrance fantastic. But kitchen a big problem. Our order took forever and when served things were missing. Had to wait on pasta that we paid extra for came when done with meal. I was there week before great experience but I will never go back. We were a table of five spent over five hundred dollar for a bad experience. I will stick to Perry’s so much better for the dollar.

Delicious private dinner together with my darling husband after a wonderful day exploring San Antonio. Every selection was delicious. Guests were quiet and blended into the romantic ambiance. Easy to wind down and visit for the evening before walking to our hotel.
