Palm is a good place for a steak/other meat-based dinner in central DC. The corn-fed beef was cooked to near perfection allowing the meat to be cut like butter enveloping easily in your mouth accompanied by sauteed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. The staff were informative without pressing you to order or to move on precipitously which is unfortunately often the... More

I am only giving a 3 star review because the bartender, MaryPat, was very professional and genuine. The food.... in a word... sucked... I say this because I am a consummate steak aficionado. I tried their Top Sirloin Double cut strip... which was $100. I don't ever mind paying for an excellent cut of beef, however, this cut fell way... More

My husband and I had patronized the Palm 4 years ago and were extremely satisfied. The only problem was the crowd. A lot of people for such a small establishment. Well that is no longer true. They have added an outside area and it is fabulous. We decided to invite my son to have dinner with us and we were... More

After seeing The Palm being discussed on a show on the Food Channel we decided to give it a try. We particularly looked forward to trying the prime rib. We were seated in a nice area with an enjoyable view of the street (I presume this is open in warmer months), We were presented with bread, and were immediately disappointed... More

There is something quite infuriating about paying $200 for a meal and having ridiculously lousy service. That was our experience on Thanksgiving night. While the food was good and our brief interaction with other staff members was okay, our server was downright neglectful. He didn't seem to mind checking in on his other tables that held larger parties. He walked... More

Celebrating my wife's Birthday. Wanted to go someplace special. I like this place because it's fancy but casual at the same time. You don't need to wear a suit and tie but the the place offers "suit and tie" food. I ordered a "slightly smaller sized" Wedge to start. Very good. I went with the 18 oz. NY Strip (w/Brandy... More

I really enjoyed the overall experience at The Palm. Our server was personable, very attentive, and gave great recommendations. The food quality was outstanding, and the steaks were well prepared. The Palm also had an excellent wine list, and the waiter assisted with an excellent pairing for every course. I also enjoyed the ambience...very old school and elegant. The place... More

Great lunch spot for killer burgers or steaks. Super seafood salad here or a myriad of other options. All the food is exceptional. Always a great place to people watch as well. Not too stuffy like many other places. Fun and lively while still an impressive place to take an important client.

Great steaks and lobsters! Big portions -- Palm fries always a favorite. Good spot for Washington celebrity sightings. Tables in front not as loud if you need to discuss business.
