Service is always very good. The 10 oz. steak was tender (but the prime double cut sirloin in the evening is outstanding).

Have been to the two Palms in NY, Tyson's Corner, VA and DC over the years and the quality of food is consistently great, the menu is expansive and should satisfy all palates and the wine list is comprehensive. The service and professionalism of the wait staff is superb. They ensure a wonderful, memorable dining experience.

been to the Palm at multiple locations over the years. This was by far the most disappointing experience I've ever had there. The service was very good, no issue there but the food honestly was very "average" and for the prices they charge is should be exceptional. I ordered the bone-in ribeye steak a staple and I don't think I've ever been disappointed at any quality restaurant which the flavor and quality of the steak. My steak had zero flavor. So, i won't be coming back to the Palm. If i want to spend $250+ on dinner for two there are many better options in my opinion.

My server was awesome sauce....quick and informative.

Knew what was going on about town!

So friendly and went the extra mile....before I thought of something she had it at the table
and the "side kicks" (i dont know what to call them) were just as friendly and swift

Awesome experience! And it was a birthday! the singing was great! :- )

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

Was visiting DC and picked the Palm based on what I know of it in NYC. Looked at some of the other steak places and this had the best reviews. Overall, met my expectations although we did have to send the filet mignon back twice - hostess was very gracious and did the right thing by us. Sides were delicious, particularly the au gratin potatoes. Bone in ribeye was cooked to perfection. Waiter was very hospitable and I would go back again.
