We had a GREAT dinner at The Palm on Sunday 14 January! From the Tomato Capri to the great steaks (highly recommend the blackened NY Strip!!!) and the 3 cheese au gratin potatoes and finally to the fresh donut holes for dessert (definitely get 2 cups of the raspberry sauce - it is way better than the chocolate!) - this was a great dining experience. This was my second visit, and the first for my date - and that Palm is awesome as always! I can count on a wonderful meal when I come to the Palm! And our server, Becky was terrific!!!
Chuck was a very good waiter and his bus boy was prompt with refilling our drinks.
While this restaurant is a Washington, D.C. institution, I have eaten at places with much better quality food. All of the food was subpar. That's all I will say because there are people who love this place.
My business colleagues and I love The Palm. We get a TBone Steak, an Italian dish, a huge Caesar, creamed spinach and tomatoes and onions, together with a dozen oysters, we we split everything. A Martini and a Good Bottle of Red, and we are happy as clams. Johnny Fever is the best waiter ever although he was out on Monday and we a great new guy, who we loved. Watch out Johnny!
Great night out for my husband's birthday. The staff gave my husband and I top-notch service and care. He had a birthday card, singing, and ice cream. Nice touch, pleasant atmosphere and great service. Pricey, but worth it! The sides are huge. We couldn't even enjoy dessert.
We come here every year for our anniversary. We were highly disappointed this year. First we were seated in the ‘porch’ area next to the window.. when we asked to be moved inside (you could feel the cold wind through the cracks in the window) the hostess said ‘we have a booth all the way in the back if that works for you’ so she took us past at least 50 empty tables to position us in the back of the restaurant. I felt like the hostess was rude, the food was mediocre, and we just couldn’t wait to get out of there. We will not be returning next year.
Always a favorite!! Eric, host, is especially charming and accommodating. Great spot!
Held a 2 week reservations, made specifically for the lobster for the New Year. Was not informed that ANY lobsters were not available until after we were seated and our drink order was delivered. UNSAT. I would have preferred a call from the restaurant once they knew lobster would be unavailable. I certainly would have (and should have) canceled the reservation had I known.
Excellent. Everyone at our table reported that they would be back.
Service was outstanding. Our fillets were ordered medium and they came out closer to well done. The waiter as well as the manager apologized and immediately replaced them with filet done correctly. The manager also offered another side complimentary but we did not need that much food. Would recommend.
