The Palm does steak right

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... read 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.

Took Family to The Palms in Nashville, TN . Recommended by my Son's co-worker and we were not disappointed. The preparation and steak were unsurpassed. Our waiter was just a Great Guy. What impressed me most is I was 30 minutes early and the hostess seated me at my table so I could wait at the table and not stand.... More

I rate this one of my best meals ever - better than meals I have enjoyed in NYC and Rome. Not only were the steaks and salmon extraordinary for their flavor and cooked to perfection but the side dishes were just as delicious. The staff treated us like royalty to round out a wonderful experience. Put this restaurant on your... More

I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant is very nice and the staff is phenomenal. They are very polite and knowledgeable. The setting is pleasant and romantic. The restaurant is very popular for those attending any of the attractions or events in the downtown Nashville are. It is located across the street from the Bridgestone arena... More

My husband and I had a gift certificate here so we decided to celebrate an early Valentine's Day, hoping for a romantic dinner. We got there early and so the place was fairly empty. However, for some reason, they seated us at a two-top in a row of two-tops that were about 2 feet apart. With couples on either side... More

My husband and I came in for a late dinner and was seated right away even though we did not have reservations. Our waiter was outstanding and was very helpful with recommendations. The sea bass and chicken parm, delicious.

When I turned 16 years old (quite some time ago) my mom and dad took me to The Palm in New York City. Wow! The paper tablecloth and the simplicity of the experience, combined with the best prime rib on the planet was quite a celebration. 40+ years later with an epicurean Chicagoan in town, we found ourselves at The...

The whole menu is overpriced, everything is a la cart. It started off with a basket of stale bread! What steakhouse doesn't serve fresh warm bread? The Fillet was just ok. Definitely not worth $47. The service was mediocre at best. This dining experience was such a disappointment!!
