The palm is a pricey steak restaurant but because I had my best steak ever at their New York location I continue to seek out their locations.

This is how a steakhouse should be run. The location is amazing, across the street from the hockey arena. It receives tons of traffic downtown before and after events. Inside, it's not overly impressive but very "clubby and comfortable." We quickly received our table upon arrival and met a seasoned professional waiter. He was friendly, confident and helpful throughout the... More

This is your daddy’s supper club. The Palm has a retro feel, busy and energetic with the ambiance of the 60’s and 70’s. The servers were pleasant and efficient and knowledgeable in about their restaurant. The food was quite good but priced awfully high as well as the drinks. I have no problem with higher prices, but Palm wasn’t up... More

Had a Sunday evening business mill here. Service was very good...it was a VERY slow night... And the food was decent. I had the veal martini which is one of their special dishes. The martini part was good but there wasn't much veal! I guess my issue with the Palm is you don't get any real value for the very... More

So I'm a midtown NY Palm girl 100% but thanks to Wayne and manager Martin, I'm beginning to question my loyalties. We always sit at the bar in any Palm that we visit, a good bartender can really set the tone for an evening and my oh my, did Wayne take care of us? Yes he did. The crab and... More

Not anything exceptional. A little pricey for what you get. Good location but might look at a finer restaurant.

The Palm is typically very good and very consistent. We ate here before the Madonna concert and I will say the place was slammed. The hostesses were kind enough to reseat us after we were sat directly in the line of the draft from the door (it was 19 degrees out) and as busy as they were, the waiter never... More

Always excellent. Super service. Lobster is one of my favorites here. Bar is a bit noisy and could use a better bartender.

Dining early and alone and received the attention of entire staff. Had a very informative and attentive waiter. I really liked his presentation of daily specials. He offered recommendations which is customary but added suggestions of splitting dishes with the specials and with regular menu items. He really offered more possibilities than I could decide on but had my wife... More
