I loved the atmosphere and the buzz going on in the restaurant. The portions are huge- sharing the sides is highly recommended. You will not be hungry leaving this restaurant! Enjoy!!

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.

The service was excellent. The staff is very professional but where they fell short is the food quality and taste. It wasn't very good and unfortunately for their prices this isn't justified.

The Palm is always a good choice if you want to gorge on red meat. Steak for two is excellent and enough for three +

I took my 2 (grown-up) sons to The Palm during a city break to DC. I’d booked on the basis of the positive reviews and wasn’t disappointed. The food was excellent, we had steak with shared sides and the house wine which was absolutely fine. The restaurant is a bit on the noisy side but it created a nice buzzy atmosphere and really didn’t trouble us. Would recommend but just be aware that it is at the pricey end.

Fantastic! My local Palm was closed a few years ago, but it was a treat to be able to come back to my favorite restaurant. The Palm still makes the best lobster anywhere & the Gigi salad is a standout against any other restaurant’s signature salad. A great night with fabulous food & fantastic service!

Food was excellent, service was discreet, noise level was completely acceptable, even with a large party (birthday) nearby. The Palm is experienced dealing with business discussions, and it shows. Thanks!

Our waitress was very nice to my wife but she almost totally ignored me and it seemed to be intentional. I asked twice for a bottled soda and after expressing some frustration to my wife who made a 3rd request and then the drink was brought out immediately. This along with a series of similar situations ruined my evening and we will never eat at the Palm again!

Went to the Palm for my wife and I wedding anniversary and we really enjoy our dinner. The place was very nice. We had some wine and crab cake appetizer to start. Then we ordered the rib eye steak with mash potatoes and asparagus for our main entree. It was all so good, probably one of the best steaks I have ever had. In all it was a good experience.

I try to go to the Palm in any metro area I am at. Vegas was my 1st but you always know when you go to The Palm, no matter where it is, you will get an incredible meal. The food was as usual great. Our waitress was very social and talked to us about many different things we asked about. When back in DC I will be back. Thanks

I loved it for the most part. It was a fun place. If you want romance, I would go somewhere else. The food was very good. Most of it. I had the scallops and they were great. The lobster was a huge mess, but very tasty. The crab cakes were not good in my opinion, nor were the brussels sprouts. The scalloped potatoes were a hit. The wine selection was nice and our bottle of wine was recommended and was very good and priced right. Our service was wonderful. What a nice guy, very accommodating.
