Really good food, fantastic service. Wine a little bit overpriced, super noisy.
Overall a good place, with an old school vibe to it.

Everything was excellent. The lunch special was excellent. Caesar salad, salmon and chicken parm were perfectly done. John, our waiter, was attentive, responsive and always seemed to be available when needed. It is a great place for lunch. One of my favorites.

The front atrium was lovely but the back was very drab and dark and the faces they painted all over the walls of people I could care less about were staring at you while you ate which was annoying.

The lobster was perfect. The hash browns, fantastic. But, the rib-eye steak undercooked. And, unfortunately, the bar tender seemed perpetually behind schedule - on a slow night.

I’ve had many great meals at the Palm, and I’ll be back, but this was off the mark.

Love the food and the service, but the noise level makes conversation difficult. I requested a quite spot - we were put in the back of the restaurant - really didn't matter where you were it was over the top loud. There was a small room at the front of the restaurant - others were in there but it was not full. If the noise level could be better managed it would be a perfect 10 but until then - other places offer a better ambiance/noice level.

I'm originally from New Jersey where quality Italian food can be found on almost on every corner: Regrettably, this doesn't hold true for DC. Thankfully, there are a select few establishments that offer a taste of home, such as The Palm, which serves the absolute best chicken parm in the area.

We were seated in the back of the restaurant with a very noisy group. We asked to be reseated but it did not happen we were told it was just as loud in front which was not true. It was hard to have a business conversation
I will think twice before returning. I was truly taken back by the lack of the staff to help.
