This doesn't feel like Boston, in a good way. Great service, drinks and food. 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

After passing up about 5 of my favorite eateries in Boston, Sunday night, I decided to try The Palm. I have passed this place so many times, each time I say, " I gotta try that place some time ". Well, tonight was the night. I chose the Veal Martini, veal in a brown Marsala sauce with sun dried tomatoes,... More

Would rate as very good but cut back to average for the price you are paying. You can easily get better value even in Boston, its good but... More

the Palm does not get the PR like other area steak houses. The service and food are always great. Their lobsters you won't get anywhere else. 3-5 pound lobsters to share with someone are just great. My favorite server is Stephanie and suggest asking for her. You won't be sorry.

I was in town for a business engagement and met some colleagues for a drink and dinner at The Palm. The food was exceptional, and the service was top notch. Our waitress checked in regularly to make sure everything was going well and that we did not need anything. Things were reasonably priced and the atmosphere was very inviting. Loved... More

We had a great dinner last night. We had a reservation for our anniversary. It was a busy night for them, but we had great service by Stephani. I had the lamb, my husband had the filet, both were cooked perfectly. We had the calamari and ahi tuna apps and they were both excellent as well. We got the brussel... More
