I was excited to go to The Palm for my birthday dinner with my friends because I’ve heard great things. If you are foodie, this isn’t the place for you. The food has minimal seasoning and the servers seemed annoyed by our large part (14 people.) The best part of the night was the birthday song other than that the best I can give my experience is a 2/5. The food is for people who want to taste the land and sea, again the meals did not have much additional flavor from when it
was caught or killed. No one at my party enjoyed the food.
Great overall as usual
I had never before ordered the veal parmigiana. I was sorely disappointed. Veal was tough sauce could have come from a can
Longtime customer, had a one-off dining experience. In short, food cold. Service lacking focus. This will in no way change deter us form returning.
We had the lobster special, find it hard to believe they were 4 pounds. Side dishes very mediocre . Carrot cake...EXCELLENT
TOPS, the best , eat what you like and please ENJOY!!
Had an amazing Dinner with our Two kids. The food is always on point. Our Waiter, Evo, was amazing. He made the experience from a 4 to a 5. We ended up closing the restaurant and never felt rushed even though we were the last customers of the night.
This year's lobster is so sweet! Simply outstanding, and the watermelon and burrata salad was good too. The service, however, was, well, icy. That is, our server was so unwarm as to make it almost uncomfortable. This was not the famous "The Palm" brusque service -- it was something I haven't encountered here before, and it bothered me (and I'm generally happy being pretty much left alone).
My girlfriend and I went to the Palm DC for our anniversary and had a great experience. The servers, hosts, and managers were all super attentive and friendly. Also, the food was outstanding and came out timely. I left feeling full and happy with our choice of restaurant. The valet is free (minus the tip, of course) and we had no troubles getting in and out of the restaurant. All in all, a great experience and we would most definitely go back.
Food was GREAT, but the waiter was more concerned in servicing the larger groups. I could actually see his disappoinment when my girlfriend and i ordered and we did not want anything other than our main courses and a side. Once he realized that our bill was not going to be very high, his attitude completely changed. I walked in prepared to leave a 25% or higher tip and walked out leaving only 15% out of curtosy. 15% is my bare minimim as i understand that being part of the wait staff is a difficult job and everyone has a bad day, but this guy just couldnt care any less about my girlfriends or my needs. I would go back based on the food alone. I live in Chicago and have never been to the Palm, but i hope my service in Chicago Palm is completely different.
Shared meal and still didn't finish. Everything was great! Servers were spot on.
Food was so delicious. Has the lobster special. Service was excellent as always.
My steak was perfect, but the Lobster Macaroni and Cheese was not my favorite. Our table attendant was very attentive and I will absolutely be back.
I am gluten intolerant. I specifically asked for a “Gf” menu. I was told there was none. I said I’d make do. I ordered the iceberg wedge salad noting no “croutons or anything like that” and “no walnuts”. Forty minutes later, I have an hour for lunch mind you, my salad arrived and it’s covered in fried onions. Today was my son’s 16 birthday and we wanted to treat him to something nice. The server said she’d have the kitchen remake my salad, 15 minutes pass and no salad. Everyone at the table save for one guest has finished and the overly attentive staff have completely cleared everything from the table except the one lone diners plate. Our server final comes back with a salad. But it’s late. I often have to opt out of eating at restaurants with my kids due to health concerns. The kitchen has nothing gf, but I can’t think of when I’ve dined at a place like The Palm and rec’d such bad service. My kids couldn’t wait to get out of there.
I celebrated my 26th Anniversary at The Palm. Everything was perfect, including the anniversary song that the staff sang to us!
America’s iconic steakhouse - always a pleasure and our server, Gabby, was great.
I loved the service provided and the food was great, especially the steak 👌🏾
Excellent food and service! The Summer Lobster Dinner Deal is a great value for the Palm.
We had visitors from Europe, and were looking for somewhere that was lively, well recommended and close to the business district. The Palm didn't disappoint - the food was great, the wine was good and reasonably priced, and our server, Chuck, was knowledgeable about the menu and the history of the restaurant, and was also wonderfully entertaining.
But great food
Dark lighting as well
Hard to see menu while dining
The Palm is my go-to place for taking my team out for a nice lunch. Food and service is always top notch and it is always a crowd pleaser.
I think of The Palm as an old friend....very reliable. I took my wife to lunch there...her first visit. All was very nice.
Never had a bad meal. Always great. Sorry we lost our Tampa location.
Fantastic food, excellent service and a great atmosphere.
Marvelous! Always delicious. Friendly staff.
My husband and I treated our granddaughter to a birthday lunch. John, our server, was most attentive and accommodating. As always, The Palm continues to be our favorite place to dine. Thank you for a great afternoon. Frank and Linda
It’s was an amazing experience. I’ve invited my parents-in-law and they were very pleased with the food and the service. These are the reasons I have been a frequent customer.
Great steak dinner. Our waitress, LaDawn, made the evening special.
Great service - great food
The summer lobster special is fantastic, we come back every year. The service level is average and has a lot there be desired. The food is great and consistent every visit, so we’ll be back even with the service challenges.
The Palm DC never disappoints. Have been going here for our family celebrations for over 40 years. It is comfortable and consistent-a feel good meal everytime.
always good - customer for 25 yrs - Michael fabulous host - John great server - all good experience !!
The waitress was excellent and enjoyed our meal. Everything was fresh and hot
Great food and service -- Lobster night and we loved it.
The Washington Palm is an institution. A fancy version of Cheers where waiters and staff become friends. The food is always outstanding and the drinks are an excellent pour. If I had one suggestion for management it would be to go back to the whole pickle. The new spears are limp and soft (yuk bad idea.) Otherwise wouldn't change a thing.
Arrived at the restaurant and was immediately greeted and seated by the staff. Our waiter was very outgoing, friendly, and helpful on suggestions. The food was fabulous, worth visiting especially for that special occasion.
You can ALWAYS count on The Palm for an unforgettable meal. We took my mom for her birthday, and everything was perfect from start to finish — from the birthday card waiting in the table, hand-signed by the staff, to the rousing Happy Birthday sung by everyone with dessert.
We all had filet with different preparations — chimichurri, hollandaise, Oscar style — and three tasty family style sides. When they say the portions are generous, they are not joking!
Thank you to the staff for a lovely night. We will be back!
Great for family get together. Fun atmosphere and good food, cheerful service.
The Palm is always a great choice, except that it is always LOUD.
Great service and exceptional food! Outstanding!
