We went here for a nice dinner on Saturday night! The lighting is too dark for my liking but the pics on the wall of their club members is a fun touch. We both had a steak and both enjoyed this but were really disappointed with the fries which were soggy! We did find our meal expensive for what we... More

We attended an anniversary party at the Palm. Entrees and other items came from the regular menu. The food was very good, especially the sea bass and NY Strip (we ordered well done and amazingly it was still juicy and flavorful). Service, though, was a little slow. People at our table ate half their meals with no drinks. The server... More

have eaten in many palms since 1975. This was their second one and I enjoyed it. They are all pretty consistent. I had the steak and lobster which is pretty much the best items to eat there and they were up to the plam standards.

Amy our Scottish waitress did a great job, and Roberto took the lobsters apart extremely well, even if he spilled a glass of Bollinger on my friend... service and quality and Price, was really in harmony here

My boyfriend and I were craving a good steak and chose The Palm because neither of us had ever been there. Prior to our visit we'd visited Bourbon Steak, BLT, Ruth's Chris, Morton's and he had also visited Charlie Palmer several times. We both felt that the steak at The Palm was better than at any of those establishments. I'd... More

We came to Washington DC from the West Coast for my wife's birthday. I have been to a couple of other Palm locations and had a positive experience. I with I could say the same about our dining experience here. The restaurant is EXTREMELY noisy. The tables were very close together and the acoustics were terrible. My wife was sitting... More

The place was a little dark. It was not crowded at 6 PM. I had the 3# lobster boiled and briefly broiled which was excellent with drawn butter (I had to take some with me to eat later) The green beans were delicious The flourless chocolate cake was tasty (but seemed a little pricey for the amount served) My dining...

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 $$$$.
