We dined here on our 51st anniversary night. Whenever we think of a place to go for a romantic, special occasion we think of the Palm in Boston, and we live in Worcester, 45 miles to the West. We have dined here before but we were treated especially fine tonight. I had made my reservation through Open Table and noted... More

Although I attended a business luncheon with a fixed menu, I was very pleased. I ordered the panko encrusted ahi tuna steak. It was cooked sashimi style, very rare, the way I like it! A very generous portion, that I almost couldn't finish. I had a house salad the was very fresh. Service was great!

We reserved a table for 2 through open table for a Saturday evening. As we were in Boston for a work event. Unfortunately, when we arrived I realized I had booked the wrong night! Luckily they were able to sit us promptly! We sat outside which is nice for people watching. Our service was excellent, maybe slightly on the slow... More

We had a lovely dinner with friends at this restaurant. The service was outstanding as was the seafood. I would highly recommend making The Palm one of the restaurants on your list when you visit Boston!

The Palm has the best steaks of any steakhouse. This one has a great location and was only about 5 min walk from my hotel. I was by myself and ate at the bar. Was waited on of by all of the people working behind the bar making service instantaneous and my glass bottomless. Great end to a very long... More

If you're looking for a never fail steakhouse meal, this fits the bill. The location is incredible right off of Atlantic Ave occupying what used to be the first floor lobby space in a building. Easy walk from lots of hotels and buildings. Can't miss it with the huge sign out front. Ambiance is a little lighter and more open... More

Conveniently located downtown, this restaurant is definitely pricey, but the steaks are very good and the wine list is noteworthy. Portions are huge for european standards. Friendly staff.

The Palm has excellent food and service. It always has specials as well as the regular menu. It has covered outdoor seating as well. The only drawback is that the bar area is very small.

Recently when dropping my son off at South Station on a Friday afternoon, we decided to take our chances at the Palm. After scoring an excellent parking spot at a meter one block away, we felt the kharma was right! Best Manhattan Clam Chowder, great steak and potatoes and yummy cocktails! Disappointing "chopped salad". Friendly server. Love the new space!... More
