I like to visit the Palm in Nashville anytime I can. The food is always wonderful. Service is always good. Last night service was good but not great. Steak was very well prepared. Sides were great. Very big so don't get too many. Located right in the middle of everything, so if going to... read more

The restaurant is in Downtown Nashville, next to the Hyatt hotel. The ambiance is good. The tables are reasonably separated so one can have privacy. The menu is varied but the Restaurant is famous for its steaks. I was not disappointed. I ordered the fillet mingnon. The portion was generous and the vegetables nicely done. I didn't care for the...

Was taken here for a lovely evening business dinner. I wasn't impressed with my cocktail but that is just personal choice. I'm very fussy! I had a perfectly cooked Tuna steak which was seasoned well and very fresh. Even had a few deserts just for research purposes I must add. Wine good and large list for all tastes. Was it... More

There were 3 of us dining and it was our first time at The Palm. We were celebrating my belated birthday and wanted to go to a 5 star restaurant and were looking forward to our special night. Atmosphere was good, waiter was good but two of our meals were almost inedible. My husband had the crab cakes and his... More

The atmosphere is very nice and the service is great but the food quality was not what I expected for the price. My scallops were not completely done but there house dressing is really good.

Excellent steak house with several delicious appetizers. Unfortunately, as in many places in US, few beers and no one from Europe. If you are Italian ask for the sympathetic Italian waitress: she cannot alleviate the pain of proposing "Torino's" breadsticks made in New Jersey (!), but at least she will be nice and helpful as in Italy!

We were told by friends to bring our pocket book but for a very pricey restaurant I was disappointed at the noise level. We were at a very small table for two and could hardly hear the other speak!

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
