We visited this famous restaurant to get a bird's eye view of all the political caricature cartoons on its walls. It is quite a sight to see many of our politicians' and news people's portraits. While you are there, you have the opportunity to choose from the delicious menu of salads and sandwiches during lunch time. There were notables having... More

I got a good, ordinary meal. I had a shrimp pasta dish - it was fine, but any good restaurant would at least match it. The salad was really good, but one doesn't have to go to an outstanding restaurant for a salad. Most of my friends had similar reaction to the filet mignon. But the big disappointment was the...

Great service, excellent food. I think their lobster is probably the best I've ever had anywhere. The waiters and wait staff are incredibly attentive and even remembered each of our party's names.

I am a big fan of The Palm restaurants and will seek them out when in a city that has one. So I ended up at the DC Palm one night fortunately, during their lobster special month. For a very reasonable price we had salads, a very large lobster and a side dish. The food just doesn't disappoint here and... More

Love the steakhouse. Go during the week and you might see someone famous. If not, you'll certainly see the powerful right on the walls around you! Love the surf and turf. Staff is great, as one would expect, for a DC institution.

The DC location of this first class steak house does not disappoint. Stuart with the famous monday night salad with anchovies or if you prefer a savory crab stew, then have a filet a la stone or a ribeye or a five pound tender lobster. Add creamed spinach, cottage fries and finish up with New York cheesecake. Complete wine list... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the Palm also has excellent veal dishes as well as their signature steaks! We arrived to find that we weren't up to handling one of the mammoth steaks, so opted for veal dishes instead. My wife found the veal marsala excellent, and especially liked the sauce. I had veal parmesan, which was quite... More

Very much enjoyed the prime new york steak. It was truly perfectly mediun cooked, with a very tasty and crispy exterior. Only thing was that one small part was a bit burned, which ruined the taste a little. Not much veggies, but home made fries where tasty. Bonus points for having good mayonaise for the fries :-). Expect to spend... More
