    LaDawn is the GOAT of customer service!! The food was good, no great, but LaDawn’s energy was the best ever. We are a family of picky eaters and always have to return something to the kitchen or complain about service. She understood the assignment - our orders were perfect. She checked on us and hands down, we all had a wonderful time. The drive down from Philadelphia to The Palm was well worth it!! We will be back soon. Tip: Ask LaDawn for the Sangria!

    The service was inconsistent throughout the evening. While the host was extremely friendly and didn’t miss the fact I was celebrating a new job, our server was much less friendly since we declined the full wine list initially to opt for a cocktail or two (which we had to ask to see a menu as it was not automatically brought to us). His demeanor suddenly improved when we changed our mind and ordered a bottle of red. It left us feeling a bit uncomfortable. The octopus appetizer was way overcooked and almost inedible/burnt. The filet mignon was great - best part of the night. I don’t think we will plan to return, given there are so many other outstanding steakhouses in DC that do a better job overall.

I haven’t been back to the palms for a few years and was very pleased to see they’re still at the top of their game.

    As always the taste and presentation of the food was brilliant. Was disenchanted with the service specifically related to our waiter who did little to personalize our visit, nor did he acknowledge our anniversary celebration. Have had better experiences at the Palm in Philly and Dallas.

    We sat in a middle room. There was a large party in the back room. It was so loud that we couldn’t hear each other speak without shouting. The service was slow at the start - it took a long time before our drink order was taken - but was ok after that. The food and cocktails were very good. Excellent wine list.

    The food has gone downhill since Landrys bought the Palm. The food is good but not great. Our service however was appalling. We were let alone for over 30 minutes after the food arrived, my dining companion ordered a second cocktail that was not satisfactory and she had to wait over half an hour to get it fixed. The restaurant was NOT busy.

    Disappointed this time. My friend and I chose the pre-fix lunch with the chicken parmesan, and it was so overcooked, could hardly cut it. The server was nice, but he brought the check and did not bring the dessert. Normally, that would not have been an issue, but it was my friend's birthday and I noted that in my reservation. The Palm is generally great, so I won't hold it against them.

    We had a great time at the Palm last night. Our waiter, Charles, made the evening, as he was fun, personable and offered very good advice about food and beverage choices. My husband and I started with a champagne cocktail, which was perfectly made, and the Palm’s Old fashioned, which was a good, stiff drink. I had the crabmeat cocktail. The crab tasted slightly past its prime, but I combined it with my cocktail sauce, so it ate well. The crab is served in purple cabbage leaves for the appearance. That does, however, make it difficult to get to all of the crab. My husband had the thick-cut steakhouse bacon, which he enjoyed. We each got the prime bone-in ribeye, cooked medium rare, which was fabulous! For sides, we had the creamed spinach and the half & half: half onion strings and half fried potatoes. Both were delicious. With my crabmeat cocktail, I had a glass of sauvignon blanc that was not on the menu but recommend by our waiter. It was excellent. We spilt a bottle of Daou Cabernet Sauvignon with our steaks. We did not get dessert, as we were too full, but a cup of coffee rounded out the evening.

    We frequent the palm for special occasions. We had a great birthday celebration. The steaks were prepared as ordered. Record all server was friendly and attentive.  My only concern was, they did not openly advertise the lobster dinner for two that they usually have during the summer months. I’ll waiter was able to give us details once we asked.
