Unacceptably tight seating. Men’s room was filthy and no hand towels. Spoke to manager who could care less. Way too many choices at this price point. Bobby Van and Del Frisco are within sight of this place and way way better accommodations.

Service was great but was disappointed with the food. Been to other Palm locations over the years and found that this didn't measure up to past experiences. Everything was subpar. The meat was over cooked, seared too hard and too longs. The creamed spinach had course unmelted parmesan in it. And the clams casino was bland . Pretty sad all around. We were there to indulge but if I'm spending over $350 for two people I would hope to get more value for my money.

Food & service were great. The very loud noises from FAN was annoying and we could not hear each other. It was only made tolerable by the staff moving us to the far end of the restaurant.

The calamari was excellent and the sides were generous portions. The wine was quite expensive, service was good...relatively quiet when we were there.

We had a later lunch at Palm West on Jan.15 before going to Opera for my husband's birthday. The food was good and the service was excellent. The waiter put our cake slices on one plate with candles on top and berries to decorate, the presentation was very beautiful! Will go back again soon!

We had a 10:45 pm reservation Saturday night but got stuck in traffic. We called ahead, ordered on the phone, and they served us even though the kitchen was officially closed! We really appreciated this kind of service--we're loyal Palmists though we'd never eaten at this one!

First I’ll start that the bread wasn’t warmed up, it was as though it just came out of the refrigerator and my beer was flat. After that the food was perfect.

Arrived on time for our reservation but there was a 30 minute wait to seat. No real problem. Once seated it too over a half hour for any waiter to begin our service. The food was very ordinary and not up to the standard of the previous reviews. Seafood was dry and bland and the steak was not done properly. For the price this experience was not worth it.

Especially crowded on a Saturday night before a show. Very loud atmosphere...could barely hear my husband across the table from me. Steak was good, but slightly dry (ordered it medium). Creamed spinach was very good.

We met with family visiting NY from FL and we're from PA so wanted something special. The Palm delivered! The food was delicious for all of us and not loud or crowded so we could talk and not shout.

Ate here on a trip with a friend. Had heard good things. I had a New York strip steak that was so so. Also had the cheese potatoes that were delicious. Our service was horrible. The waiter was not motivated at all. Never asked if we wanted a drink or wine. He did the same thing at the next table and the wife told her husband to get him back she wanted to order wine. I could go on and on but to pay the prices they charge for the food the service should be better. I won’t go back.

Disappointed in this trip to the Palm. On a not when not busy, steak was over cooked and service mediocre. Expected more from this establishment. Palm at one time a great place to go. But lately lost its glamour. With many more steak options around they need to up their game. If not for fact in time square area and seeing a show that night would have been less tolerant of the shortcomings.

Great steak and sides. We sat in a booth in the back and half way through the meal there was a distinct odor of ammonia. A bit of a bummer. They forgot to bring the coffees we requested at the end of the meal. The server who took our order was no where to be found and we noticed a different server in our section and got his attention. It seemed like we we’re forgotten at the end.

Great meal, terrific service.

I made this reservation for a special meal before seeing Hamilton, and it was a worthy choice. The food was great--my only complaint is that I ordered the Oscar style filet, and one of the asparagus spears was too thick and woody. But the steak was cooked to perfection and everything else was wonderful.

Service was outstanding, and my server was very pleasant and helpful.

Pricy, but worth it.

We always have a delicious meal at The Palm!
When your husband has to work on a holiday, so you can't be with your family why not go to The Palm for dinner!!
My husband's rib-eye steak was a bit overcooked, but other than that our meal was wonderful.
The Palm was extremely crowded tonight as it was Christmas!! Luckily we had our reservation thanks to Open Table. One patron kept looking at me most of the evening which was a bit annoying, but I wasn't going to let her ruin Christmas dinner with my husband!
