Had a memorable group people at The Palm restaurant in DC. We had an unbelievable group of over 30 people which the restaurant put us in a private back room with TV sets which were tuned to the NFL playoff game. The atmosphere and mood was electric and then came the drinks which I tried everything - champagne, whites, and... More

Another fine night out at the Palm, As always everything was outstanding, Chuck is always the Best, the front bar staff works so very hard to make the best drinks.

Top notch steak house in Northwest DC, certainly among DC's finest if not the best. We especially enjoy this restaurant if we're gong to the Kennedy Center because its a quick trip down 19th Street to Virginia Ave and then it's off to the races. Here's the only problem with The Palm: 19th street is a one way street heading... More

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.
