The Palm has always been a favorite but I hadn't focused much on their Italian or side dishes. While recently at LA Live we had the pleasure of having Vanessa as our waitress and she was delightful. She recommended the asparagus side dish and OMG - amazing. The asparagus has been lightly coated and fried and it was completely awesome.... More

I dined here recently for lunch due to the reviews on tripadvisor. The staff was accommodating to my gluten allergy and were courteous and knowledgeable. I ordered a petite filet and a side of mushrooms-- the steak was pretty good but the mushrooms were to die for. Buttery and flavorful... I ate the entire thing.

Last time we had been to the Palm was years ago and how good it was but this Tuesday I am afraid we were disappointed with the quality of the Food. Service was excellent but very few customers but the food quality was lifeless. I had oysters to begin and then Crab Cakes and both I have had better quality.... More

The Palm was delightful find on the boundary between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Friendly, professional service and the food was divine. Try the Ahi Steak - absolutely delish. If you're hungry, the Power Lunch is a great value, including salad, main, side and dessert for $25ish. I had a caesar salad, chicken parm and cheesecake. All divine. I understand... More

The Palm Restaurant has the best service. From the hostess, the waiter and the manager all take care of you, you want for nothing. We just had dinner last weekend, we were a half hour late for our reservation on a Saturday night. They were so nice and we were sitted with only a couple minutes of waiting. My friends... More

I was on a trip to UCLA with friends and my local friend recommended this restaurant highly. It meets our very high expectation The prices ranges from 40-50 for steaks and high 30s for seafood. One of us ordered the 14oz fillet. When the fillet arrived, it looks a bit small so my friend called the waiter. They offered to... More

This is a lobster house that also serves steak not the other way around. Clams oreganato were old NY style, Ceasar salad was as good as you'd expect in a restaurant, 4 lb. steamed lobster was sweet with great claws. Reservations are a must, we were well served if a bit slow. Figure about a hundred a head without liquor,... More

The service was more formal and standard than I expected, even the smiles looked pre-set, but the beef was done crrectly and tasted fairly good. The calamari as aptizer was not the best, but good enough.

My husband and I came here for dinner and I am so glad we did. Although not cheap, you definitely get what you pay for. We started (shared) with the lobster bisque...this was the best lobster bisque I have ever had! I was tempted to lick the bowl clean it was that delicious! We then split the 9 ounce filet... More
