Reggie was great.
Great place for a birthday celebration. Very friendly service and excellent food.
Consistently the best service, appetizers, steak and of course, the amazing chicken parmigiana! My friends and co-workers love The Palm DC! Highly recommended!
Palm is a nice restaurant to go too and very sexy on the inside.
Reggie - was our waiter - great guy, great service - very personable and a great experience
Reggie was awesome. Made us feel right at home and everything he recommend was right on point. Very professional and very observant. Never had to look for him if we needed something. He was on top of it all.
Stopped in for a quick lunch. This place is an old classic. Not your average steakhouse with the dark woods, crown moldings etc. It is a not particularly elegant but there's still something special about it. There are cool caricatures of all the famous people who frequent this place when in DC. You can tell its an established venue with a vast following. The lunch menu was brief, not one of these encyclopedias you find at other upscale restaurants. The food doesn't disappoint. We ordered salad and burgers. The Cesar was very good but the the Baby Kale salad was fantastic. The Bacon cheeseburger is not for the faint of heart. The bacon is as thick as cardboard and delicious. The meat temperature was spot on. Service was excellent. Our waiter was an old pro. All in all a great experience.
Best New Years Eve dinner ever !
New Year’s Eve
All the above. The Palm fits every occasion.
We have been coming to the Palm Restaurant since Clinton was president. This is the first time I have been disappointed by the food. I sliced New York steak with peppers and onions was cooked perfectly, but that could not make up for the poor cut of meet. Approximately two inches of the strip was solid fat and gristle. There was also a rind of gristly fat along one long edge of the cut. The rest of the steak and its accompaniments were excellent, but the substandard quality of the cut spoiled the dinner for me.
Otherwise, ambience, service and hospitality were, as always, excellent and in line with the price for the meal.
Our waiter, John, was outstanding. He gave us just the right amount of attention and shared stories about his life! He had a wonderful sense of humor. The food was the best I have ever eaten! I had lobster. It was prepared perfectly. My husband had the rib eye. He said it was the best steak be had ever eaten. The sides are served family style and were great. Dessert was great and the cappuccino was served with dessert. If we are ever back in DC this is a go to again place!
Party of 10. We had a great experience!!!!
An enjoyable evening with two of my children. Close proximity to a Metro station a big plus.
Our server was the best and the food was amazing!!
Awesome, still my favorite restaurant in downtown D.C.
60th birthday dinner was excellent. The Palms excellence of food and service stands the test of time. Thanks to the staff.
Ladawn was our server as requested and as usual she was outstanding! It was Christmas Eve and a busy night and she handled everything like a pro. We were a party of 5 and had our daughter’s fiancé with us who had never been to The Palm. The only disappointment was that we had to send his steak back TWICE because it was so rare it was blue inside. It made for an awkward meal. I understand once but twice is excessive. This is the 2nd Christmas Eve we have had this happen where one person in our party’s meal has had to go back which is concerning (and why last year we dined at Capital Grille instead). Christmas Eve is a very busy night for the kitchen and the manager was very accommodating and generous and took the steak off of the bill which was very nice. I wonder if management might better prepare the kitchen for nights like this and implement some sort of quality control to avoid issues like this in the future.
Great food ! Awesome service great environment to celebrate with family
I must say. Overall disappointed. Food was “ok” service was “ok”. Meal presentation was unimpressive. Had to instruct the server to take the ladies orders first. Maybe I’m old fashioned but that comes from lack of training. There are a lot of great dining experiences here and this is just not one of them. I travel all the time and I’m afraid this Palm does not cut it. Food presentation was poor. Basically food on a plate. No detail. My order came out wrong and had to send it back. Nothing really bad, but nothing memorable. I never mind paying for quality. This was not it. I am sorry to say. Was excited to take my staff out for a nice holiday meal. Won’t be back. I can name a handful of steakhouses and $$$$ dining establishments in the city.
The place was full and I’m sure it always is.
A 2 1/2 star establishment. If the owners read this please try to take it constructively and look to improve if you think you need to.
Usual solid Palm experience. Food was acceptable and service exceptional!
The Palm DC is part of our annual holiday tradition. For almost a decade, my oldest and dearest friends and I have met here for our Christmas Lunch.
We have been several times to the Palm in DC, and always enjoy the amazing food (the steak dishes are perhaps the best anywhere). The last two visits for dinner, however, our Palm gift cards were not properly credited. The first experience was when a $100 gift card I received for Christmas was only credited for $50 toward the dinner. After checking with Palm corporate, they indeed confirmed it was purchased for $100, and issued a $50 card for the difference. They also threw in a $25 card for the hassle. When I used the $25 gift card this past week, I was told that it had expired (just recently), and they would not credit it toward the dinner (which they could have easily done). We also had a $50 Amex gift card to use, and was advised that it was only worth $40 toward the dinner (which doesn't make sense, someone paid $50 for it!). So overall, it's a great place for dinner, good food and service, but save yourself the aggravation with the gift cards and just pay like anywhere else.
Hosted businesses partners for holiday season. I ordered a medium rare New York strip steak but it came over cooked more like medium-medium well but decided not to send it back because I did not want to wait. For an establishment that specializes on steak I was very disappointed with how my steak was cooked.
Great, a little too noisy.
I am a Palm fan...have been for years, but the DC Palm for lunch is way too noisy now
So loud I literally could not maintain focus on my conversation.
I love LaDon; she's a marvelous waitress and makes everything perfect every time!!! Also, the chefs at the DC location are outstanding!!! This restaurant is my favorite, hands down! Ask for LaDon! :) 🌹🙏
We have been coming to the Palm for years for special occasions. So glad the “DC creamed spinach “ is back! Our server was helpful but not intrusive. We enjoyed our meals and were happy to be back.
The most tender and flavorful steak I've had in years! The food and service were impeccable!!!
Incredible food with truly amazing service. Our go to place in D.C.
I have been going to these restaurants in multiple locations for years, I must say that the food has been nothing short of excellent, I almost always order a steak of some cut ore the other, however, this particular time , the steak, mushrooms were extremely bland and tasteless, I have never experienced that there before
Jimmy - as always - was awesome!!!!
Great food, great wine selection, friendly service and great recommendations from the server.
Get the Bacon appetizer...it was so tender and delicious! I had the 9oz filet which even well done was still tender!
Steak was not cooked at desired temperature. Server was not to be found -- never checked in with us. Too interested in turning over the table.
Palm DC is a classic power gathering establishment without the pretense and all comfort.
Reggie was a wonderful server. The noise level was a little overwhelming initially, but as the night went on, it made for easier conversation as people left
Had a great birthday dinner at The Palm! The bartender and my server were extremely helpful and friendly.
