Excellent food and service

We got a private room for a group of more than 20 people celebrating a scientific meeting. The fixed menu was flexible (fish and meat) with great taste, the wine was of high Quality and the service very attentive. Overall a great experience

I ordered chicken parmigiana. Essentially I got a huge plate of half inch thick melted cheese with chicken hiding underneath somewhere. The tomato sauce was good but nothing more than average.

We arrived at The Palm and were warmly greeted by the greeter. Ambiance - excellent Place setting - elegant Our waiter Juan was the epitome of professionalism/courtesy/charm all in one. He was very knowledgeable about the different wines and guided us towards the perfect Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon. Our appetizer course of calamari was well prepared; soft, crunchy, lightly... More

The Palm is a very good and reliable steak house choice. Service is quite good, and so too is the food. My bone in filet was excellent. The prices are on the high side, which is typical for a steak house. One added benefit: unlike most of the Boston steak houses, the sound level is moderate. This is a good... More

My husband and I met here after work on a Wednesday night and it had a nice crowd but with the huge high ceilings, it feels enormous. The smaller wedge is so big, share it! I ordered the lump crab for an entree. It was delicious,... More

This is a place I can highly recommend (thank you to the concierge at Hilton Downtown who recommended it to me!): very good and friendly service, excellent crab cake, delicious steaks and fantastic desserts. Also, the atmosphere is nice: busy, happy and fun.This was better than expected! Any negative? It can get quite loud...

Ever since Locke Ober closed we have been trying to find a place to call home for our annual Christmas lunch. Just had our 44th at The Palm and it's not it.

The Palm was an overall good dining experience. I ordered the salmon and was a little surprised that the server did not ask how I wanted it prepared. I was with a group of 5 and we ordered whipped potatoes, asparagus, and brussel sprouts to share. All of the food was delicious. My salmon was well prepared and all of... More
