    My family is old-school-Palm fans. We have been to most of them over some 30+ years and worried that in the transition of ownership (to Landry) that things would change. The Boston location was our first venture into the post transition Palm organization. The decor was the same (big comfy booths and tables along with caricatures on the walls) - and the menu looked very similar (although some things went up in price -- but that is true everywhere these days). The steak tartare, caesar salad, cocktails, steak, (cooked to perfection) and even the carrot cake for dessert were all very good and at The Palm quality levels. But it was the service that surprised us. GREAT SERVICE -- from our welcome, to seating, recommendations for food selection, visits from Ryan the manager to check on us, and dutiful attention from our server Mackenzie -- our experience was superb. We will send our friends and definitely visit other Palm restaurants now.

    Server was nice but didn’t seem attentive enough for what seemed a not busy lunch rush. Person I went with ordered the power lunch and got first and second course at the same time. I ordered the Gigi salad and .. it was the most bland salad I have ever eaten in my life. I always try to like the food here but I can’t force it so I just can’t go back again.

    The food and service are excellent. I particularly like The Palm because the noise level is reasonable; it's much easier to hear conversations compared to other restaurants in the area. To me, that's worth paying extra for.

    Seemed like they were struggling for server staff. Appetizers and main courses were cold. Everyone else was served before us. Very disappointing for $500 for 3 people for an early dinner.

    Ever since Landry’s has purchased The Palm, a once high end steakhouse, the overall experience has diminished. Gone is the hearts of palm salad, gone is the 100O island home made dressing and replaced with shelf brands I had the veal parmigiana, the tomato sauce was cold, lifeless, and out of a can. Certainly not the Palm experience I have been accustomed to for many many years. Have “scratched” The Palm of my restaurant list

    In a city with no shortage of high-end restaurants, the Palm Boston always delivers a superior dining experience. What makes this restaurant truly special is the consistently great food, stylish ambiance, and, most of all, the incredible long-tenured team here. From the moment we arrived, we feel welcomed and appreciated. Our server and bartender were truly impeccable! Sebastian, the bartender makes the best old fashions in Boston and is always a delight. Most of all, with every visit we have made to the Palm this year, Ryan, the General Manager has personally checked in with our table. He truly cares about our experience in his restaurant, and his team truly delivers on his high expectations. A real class act. We simply cannot recommend the Palm enough and look forward to our next visit with Ryan and his team.

    The food was 45m late. The service was horrible But worse than anything the food was so average it was embarrassing. My steak salad was inedible. The salad was old and the steak cut was tasteless, chewy, and could’ve been a Steakem.

    We had lunch during Restaurant Week. The menu and food were outstanding. A very good value for what is not always the finest a restaurant can offer for a fixed price. Service was a bit slow, but they were very busy and under the current circumstances with limited help, it was understandable.
