    I have been in The Palm in DC a lot of times. So, I can compare. The noise was awfull, we had to request a change of Table. The steak was overcooked. The side order of asparagus never arrived. The wedge salad did not have almost dressing. A very sad experience!

    We checked in on time at 12.00pm and were assigned a nice table at terrace. We ordered drinks first and waited too much for them (club soda and diet coke). Only 1 waiter for 8 tables at terrace. We order food and waited 40 min for very simple straight forward lunch plates. I called twice the attention of the hostess to look out for our plates. I have been to other The Palm restaurants and this location is well below average in service quality. Agustin Arellano

    The steak was awful. It had no flavor or seasoning! The worst steak I’ve ever tasted. I had to get a dipping sauce to choke a few bites down before giving up.

    The tuna tartare appetizer was served warm. I’m not sure if that’s the reason that my stomach has been upset for the last four or five days… But I am concerned that I got a bacterial stomach infection from that dinner.

    We were seated and then asked to move because someone wanted to sit near their picture on the wall. This telegraphed to me and my party that we were less important then this other customer. It was just an overall strange experience.

    It appears that this once legendary restaurant is no longer. Our medium steaks were grey and everything else was over seasoned. It’s hard to make a wedge salad not taste good, but they managed to accomplish that feat. It makes me sad to say this, but I won’t be able to to back to a restaurant that was once my favorite in DC.

    Used to love the Palm go here every year for my birthday and had my wedding reception here. Last year I went for my birthday and it was off but contributed to the pandemic. This year: the wine list was off to what they had and food was mediocre. Staff was super excellent but not sure what happened with everything else. For what we spent we will probably not be back.

    Was a wonderful dinner. Our reservation was for 630, we were promptly seated. Our server was great, only issue was the restaurant quickly got busy and our server seemed to not have enough time to check on us. We needed more drinks, when it came time for our bill, it took longer then we felt it should have. Overall the food was amazing and the service we did receive when he wasn’t busy was very attentive. Portion sizes were more than enough and food was awesome. Would definitely recommend.

    We brought a friend and her dad to dinner - they had never been. Three of us had stakes that “melted in our mouths.” The fourth guest had salmon. He said it was the best salmon he had ever had and he’s lived all over the world. The service was wonderful - timely without being pushy. Our reservation was early (5 PM) because we we knew from decades of dining here that the noise level on a Saturday night can go up pretty dramatically after about 6:30. All in all far exceeded even our expectations.

    Food was amazing. Service was amazing. Waiter led a boisterous happy birthday for my daughter's 16th. Hadn't been in years, and Palm Fries (chips) no longer on menu but they made them for us anyway. We were a party of 9 and for the first half of meal it was hard to hear anyone but the people next to you or a couple seats away. That was largely due to one loud table on the other side of the room. Once they left, it was perfect. But that's the Palm. Sometimes it's going to be loud. Great celebration.

    I went to The Palm for the first time with a girl friend and we had a fabulous time. We split the meatball, dry aged strip steak, broccoli, cheesecake and carrot cake -- everything was wonderful. Kylie's service was top notch; she gave great recommendations and her knowledge of the restaurant's history was a nice bonus of entertainment for the evening. I highly recommend sitting in her section and picking her brain on your visit!

    Service was definitely off. After being seated, we waited about 15 minutes before our server finally came over. He then asked what we wanted to drink, at which point we pointed out we never received menus. Our service was slow the entire meal and we were rarely checked in on, which is tough to accept at the price point of the Palm. Not sure if they were low on staff that night, but compared to recent service we’ve had at Capital Grille, Maestro’s, and Del Frisco’s, it was very disappointing. Will definitely impact how soon (if ever) we go back to the Palm.
