Went there for our special night and we loved it, decent wine collection, great steak and our waiter was fantastic, wish I would remember his name. An Italian with a heart of gold . We loved our dinner and it was worth every $$$$.

Fun atmosphere, good drinks, and reliable steakhouse food makes The Palm my top choice for steak in Washington. The staff at the bar and in the dining room are attentive. The only possible downside is noise. If you don't like lively background sounds of people having fun, The Palm might not be the best choice.

Surrounding is fun. Portraits of famous political figures. Food is tasty and pretty standard. The Service is outstanding! Our waiter Tim was the most professional waiter I have met in a very long time.

The first thing that hit us upon entering is the noise level- very loud. Our waiter was very professional and service was good, it was the food quality that was lacking. We had the salad with shrimp, and found it disappointing. The lobster which is served nicely out of the shell was chewy. The filet mignon was not hot and... More

We hosted ten for dinner and had a great time. Festive atmosphere, great service. I recommend bone-in rib eye and/or lobster. Desserts are great. Side dishes are a must! Especially the half and half fried chips and onions. Great wine list. I've been going to different Palm locations - Chicago since the early 80s. NYC and DC. It's one of... More

I have worked for the same law firm for 36 years. (I was born in a conference room! LOL!!) Back in the day this restaurant was where the movers and shakers dined. I have dined here more times than I can count over the years, and although the faces have changed the food and the service remain the same. The... More

We ate as a party of 4. I usually have their steak but I was overloaded on beef and had the veal. My wife always has veal at the Palm as well. I had parm and she had hers with lemon. Our tablemates had a veal Marsala and blackened sea bass. The latter two dishes were excellent as were the... More

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
