The reason to go to a top flight expensive steakhouse is because if you’re going to impair your cholesterol level and grow your waist line you want the experience and particularly the eating to be GOOD. The highest quality. Palms meat quality isn’t what it was just two years ago. And in three straight trips there to buy a 50 or 60 dollar steak they have failed to cook my steak rare. They over cook and it puts you in the awkward position of sending it back or paying for something you don’t want. I’m looking for a Boston steakhouse that knows how to cook steak. Will write when I find one

We went to The Palm for my birthday with friends. The service and ambiance were excellent and the food was even better! From the burrata and tuna appetizers to the salads and delicious steak special, everything was so good! Highly recommend!

This Palm does not keep up with other Palms. The Caesar salad is cold and bland. The Branzino comes out soggy with vegetables draped on it. Very strange to do to a beautiful piece of fish. They also take all the lobster out of the live lobsters and put it back in the shell. Let the customer work the lobster. Why give tools if you are going to take it out? This Palm is just ok.

The food was great and would highly recommend but I think the old location was much better. Still the classic palm but just in a weird location.

I recently dined here with my wife for our wedding anniversary. The place is great. The architecture is very old school with marble pillars running throughout the dining room. The food was pricey but very high quality and worth it. Will definitely be dining here again.

I have never had a bad meal at the Palm but my chicken Ceasar just wasn't good. The grilled chicken was cold and, honestly, tasted like it was boiled and then dropped on the the Ceasar dressing was bland. My first bad experience. I guess no restaurant is perfect.

Great food and drinks. The sides were delicious--and as always the multi-layered chocolate cake for dessert. Our waitress was a gem and we look forward to coming back.

As a follow up Manager called me today promptly at 12 noon and heard my complaints and promised to make it right. That’s a good manager and one that listens to the customer.

Up from NY...not the stellar Palm experience I expected. They promise to do better next time.

My boyfriend and I wanted to spend a night away in Boston and we stumbled upon the palm restaurant by happy accident as we were staying right across the street! Our server was exceptional and the food was sooooo good! Pricey but definitely worth it for the atmosphere and great food!

I have been to many Palms around the country and our dinner Friday night was not up to par. The service was amateurish, the steak was mediocre, the home fries were greasy instead of being crispy, the creamed spinach looked and tasted like wallpaper paste. And on top of everything else my wife spit out a shard of glass from her diet soda.

Outstanding evening at The Palm. There were 8 of us celebrating my sons 20th birthday. They decorated the table with confetti and a card. Gorgeous dessert platter, service was amazing with Gregory. Highly recommend going if you want great food and service. They made the celebration extra special.
