It was an ok meal

We had a business lunch there. The set menu was salad, filet mignon, chicken or salmon, and your choice of dessert. I had the filet mignon. The portion was just right. The cheesecake however tasted a bit like crayons. Overall a pleasant business experience.

I was wanting a great steak, and ordered a fillet mignon. It was really horrible. I knew as soon as I put my knife in it that it was a very poor quality meat. I was very surprised. My husband ordered the chilean sea bass which was good. The goat cheese whipped potatoes were good.

The service and food where average. Portions are large the smallest steak is 12 oz and $ 50 side extra, Plan on spending $50 to $70 per person with out drinks. While I do not mind spending that much the service and the food were not worth the price.

Save your money. This place is absurd. I ordered chicken parm for $35 dollArs and they charged me an additional $9 for pasta. My table mate ordered a Cesar salad for dinner with chicken added and the additional chicken was $24! Really?! Go somewhere else.

This is a first class steak and lobster restaurant. My bone-in Ribeye was excellent and really big. The 3 cheese mac and cheese was also excellent. We didn't have room for dessert.

The steaks and the lobster is outstanding. We have been there on a Sunday for dinner. This is much better than on any other day we visited the normally heavily crowded place. We enjoyed it. The wine was very good. Prices are upscale. Valet parking makes the visit in downtown easy.

The Palm is a chain that sticks by standards that are never disappointing. Expect to have a great dinner or lunch, and do not expect intimate dining.

This is a restaurant of distinction, with a well earned reputation for its exquisite steaks. So often one is disappointed by restaurants living on yesterday's reputation. Not so here. My steak was truly outstanding. Every mouthful was savored with delight. Not a meal to be rushed.

A great place for an upscale lunch or dinner. The place is great with many fine offerings. If you like crab cakes, you will LOVE theirs' Definitely a winner in downtown Nashville.

First visit. Food was very good, but expensive. We had the 4 lb lobster for two. Well prepared and presented. Prompt and matter of fact service. Not overly friendly, but professional. Very noisy. Lots of large groups were in the restaurant.
