The Palm's service is excellent and I found their filet mignon to be top notch. Drinks and sides were great. Nice place to go if you're in DC and would like to see how the city works.

Hadn't been in a while so I had forgotten how good it is (even better than I remembered). 6 of us had a sensational lunch where everyone enjoyed their meal. It's not just about steak...everything was delicious.

Love the Palm in DC. Great service, crusty but professional! Solid Palm favorites. Especially love the Ahi Tuna Salad - my go to - healthy, fresh, great for business lunches. Highly recommend.

Perfectly good we sat in the rather pleasant and light glazed area close to the entry. We both had different varieties of the salad selection. Both excellent although huge in size. Service was efficient and pleasant. Great for lunch.

I've eaten here a few times, twice in the past month. Consistent high quality steaks with impeccable service has been my experience each time. Sides are great ! I highly recommend the lobster macaroni and cheese which has large bites of lobster through out. Creamed spinach was among the best I've had. Read about their history of covering the walls... More

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
