I have eaten at the Palm once in Las Vegas and was very impressed, so I was very happy when I got the chance to try this one a little bit closer to home. The staff and our waiter were extremely friendly and outgoing, and the overall experience was excellent. My girlfriend with the salmon, and I opted for the... More

They even have a frequent eater program LOL. Best steaks and huge lobsters that can not be beat. Be sure to get the asparagus Freete (SP) its fired and Parmesan cheese is on top. Ok yes, great disserts but they are HUGE and easy to split with several people.

I had wonderful dinner the week before in the Palm Chicago, so when were in LA we decided to give the Plam a try, but was far cry from the one in Chicago. The food was average, service just OK. will not go again to this location.

We had a great night, the staff were so busy but never to busy to make sure we had everything and we were never rushed. The food was excellent and I would go back again just to try and sample more of the menu. The only downside was it was very dark and very difficult to read the menu and... More

The Palm is my go-to option in any city. The Santa Monica Blvd location is a must visit option for dining. The atmosphere is nostalgic and the food is excellent; menu options are plentiful and the wait staff is the industry best.

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.

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
