Our waitress was great, I didn't get her name. The only downside was that a few of the items we wanted to try they were all out of. The steak didn't have much flavor either.

Saying that this was the worst experience ever would be an understatement! Ambiance was dull, music was barely heard by people shouting and kids running around. The waiter was unattentive and would show up after hours, that even the complimentary bread rolls came after the appetizers! The other waiter would pour the wine and water in an aggressive way and spilled the water everywhere.. The cleaning staff would casually stroll next to the dinner tables with the garbage bin wide open, I cannot stress how disgusting and unsanitary that was. Now as for the food, at that point we did not expect the food to come out great, so we were not disappointed but accepted it at that stage. The crab cakes were not fresh and tasted awful, We asked for the steak to come as medium well, but it came out well done. And let's skip to the part where the fries came out so unpleasant as if they were re-fried for the fifth time. This was supposed to be a special occasion but it will definitely be unforgotten.

Had lunch during dine around week. Was surprised to see that the regular menu also had reasonable prices and a good variety of choices. Had crabmeat salad--fresh plain Crabmeat on lettuce with fresh vegetables. Very good but could have used more Crabmeat. Just A few small pieces. Sat outside but traffic noise was not an issue

First, we arrived 40 minutes early and they were still able to accommodate us immediately which was great. The service was fantastic, waitress was great. We had the chicken parmesan, potatoes au grautin and 9 oz center cut sirloin and hollandaise sauce. Everything was good, but the hollandaise was cold and was neither buttery, lemon or cheese flavor, it was different, little bland like it was missing something. The steak was cooked perfectly but had no flavor, very bland, not even a salt and pepper flavor. Potatoes were amazing and so was the chicken parm. I would return again and likely try a different cut of meat and different topping. It tasted ok just very plain, little flavor. They also only had one wine selection for each type of wine which I thought was strange for this type of restaurant but thought it could be due to COVID and maybe they had limited selections for this reason (not sure if its always this way).

Booked a table “outside” but it was actually in a space fully enclosed by glass. The ceiling was high & there were ceiling fans so the airflow would be better the main restaurant but it was by no means outside. During a pandemic that is an important distinction. We were celebrating a friends birthday so we felt that we had no choice but to stay. After being seated it took a least 30 mins for the server to come back around to take our drink order. After the slow start the service improved. We all got steaks & they were fine. Not rushing back though.

Went to the Palms on Dine Out Boston week. The choices for $38/meal were decent: 3 app choices, 4 dinner choices but dessert was underwhelming with 2 different chocolate cakes?? Service was friendly and efficient. Drinks were ridiculously overpriced: $17 for an ordinary margarita is exorbitant and unnecessary. The Palms is not a "go to" for an ordinary dinner and sets itself up for the "occasion" dinner like an anniversary or birthday. The ambiance is airy with high ceilings and an old world feel, but I have no screaming need to go back there. Food was decent but not exceptional.

AMAZING!!! Such a great experience will definitely come back to the palm. I have wanted to try this place for years and I’m so glad I finally did. The au gratin was so rich and creamy, and the New York strip was excellent.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant. John was our waiter, he went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. My husband had the 9 oz filet and I had the lamb chops and a couple of sides. Our dinner was delicious to say the least. We will definitely be back.

Sunday night dinner. Food was fantastic as always!! They have a 90 minute limit as most restaurants do to allow for the turning of tables. But with only two tables occupied at the time I was surprised to hurried out at the 90 minute mark. Its the only place and time I’ve experienced that...

Now that The Palm is part of Landry's, it's not quiet the same.
Food portions and presentation have changed.
Selection not as interesting as it was before.
Service still good, just a bit more harried.
