I have eaten at the Washington, DC Palm many times, and usually it's a good meal--not gourmet but good. This time no so much---I had gazpacho which was basically tomato flavored water with chopped veggies (mostly onions)--really nothing. Then shrimp and grits, a daily special. After a few bites it was clear the shrimp were not fresh and the "gravy"... More

I visited the Palm on my first evening in Washington, wanting a restaurant close to my hotel. The walls of the restaurant are covered in caricatures of famous people which are fun to look at. The service from all the staff in the restaurant was very friendly and efficient. The quality of the food was spot on and good value... More

You can always count on an excellent meal and impeccable service at the Palm. It is popular, so expect it to be noisy -- even late on a Saturday evening. But the service provided will ensure a wonderful evening. The filet mignon is the best anywhere around. We shared sides of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes with goat cheese. One... More

The Palm is a classic. Solid steak, seafood and salads. Enjoyable steakhouse atmosphere. Always a good experience.

I was at a conference in DC and the group had reserved a private room at The Palm. Very nice restaurant, room and great food and service. We began with passed appetizers - first was a toast with goat cheese and fresh tomato, followed by crab cake canapes. Both were great, but the crab was awesome. If they have that... More

Went to the Palm on a business trip. The atmosphere was awesome. Waitstaff did an exceptional job. The wine glass was always full, as was the water glass. Had salmon as my entree. Very well prepared and tasty. The potatoes were awesome as well. I would recommend this place if you want a nice dinner with great service.

My wife and I recently visited the Palm for their lobster special. It was very good. Our problem concerns our experience with their wine. While enjoying our dinner, the waiter suggested a nice Chardonney to have with our lobster. Having finished our pre-dinner cocktails, we thought that was a nice suggerstion. While we had no problem with the price of... More

We had a nice late family dinner at this restaurant. The kids loved the meat and I totally understand why. The service was good and fast as you may expect at this kind of restaurant. The wine list is very American and you can find some nice Pinot Noirs. I rate it 6/10

It's been over 20 years since I ate here.The food is just as good today as then. Great bar and great service start you off. The ambience is as you would guess is all Politician and Redskins caricatures. Look around while here.You are sure to see sports figures dining on great fare that Presidents also enjoy. One of our favorite... More
