Nice night out

The Palm has good food. Is it pricey..yes. But it's the Palm. It is a slightly upscale restaurant that maybe isn't what some people are looking for in Nashville. Somehow when in Nashville you seem to get wrapped up in the music and bars with duct taped stools. So compared to the chicken... read more

We were greeted at the door like we were country music stars. Our waiter was wonderful, so knowledgable about the entire menu. I knew that it was going to be pricey as I have dined there before, but average for a fine dining experience. The entire meal was superb! I had the salmon and asparagus. It was seasoned and cooked...

I have been coming to this Palm prior to events at the Bridgestone or Schermerhorn or Ryman for quite a few years. We try to visit at once a month when possible if we are not attending an event at those venues. The food is consistently very good and the service very professional. For those times when our order was... More

Excellent service, excellent food. Great staff, professional atmosphere. Have hosted large groups as well as small ones for business dinners at the Palm, never disappointed. Great for casual dining as well. Highly recommended

The Palm resturant in Nashville is very well located, across from Bridgestone, a block away from the convention center and honk tonks, 2 blocks from Ryman, The steakhouse is pure old school. Don't go if you expect a sizzler steakhouse, The staff all well,trained and pleasant, The meal perfectly timed with strong drinks appetizers,wonderful half Gigi salad, impressive wine list... More

Great service; delicious food; very generous portions. Crab cakes were most delightful; and the creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were both very tasty. Get reservations, but it is worth the wait!

Visited The Palm in Nashville expecting an upscale dining experience. Was a bit disappointed from the moment we arrive. Basically ignored for a few minutes at the entrance though there were 3 hosts standing around chatting. "A bit of a wait" we were told (though there were PLENTY of tables open) so we made our way to the bar. Nice... More

We had not heard of The Palm since we are from out of town. The streets of Nashville were packed as the weekend had many events going on. Hotels were booked up and charging $700 for rooms downtown. INSANE! (We stayed out by the airport for $120). Walked around trying to find something within walking distance to Bridgestone, but did... More

Went with a business group of 10 on a very busy night (reservations a must). Our waiters were very good seeing to our needs and keeping the food coming out in a timely fashion. The salads and starters were great, and everybody had some type of steak for dinner. They were all perfectly cooked. Popular sides were the scalloped potatoes... More

Very expensive, the scenery is nice and a great place if you are going to Bridgstone Arena or a Pred's game. Make sure to say exactly how you want your steak prepaired. Food is very rich, deserts are of good portion however, not for sharing.
