great staff cold steaks

We went on a Sunday a group of 12.Place was quiet. Prices are your average steak house prices. Only 2 waiters seemed to be working so waited a bit for Service. Was not their fault. They were extremely Nice and helpful. Sides were great, steak was warm but not HOT.

Wow we have been going to the Palm restaurant for many years and this recent experience was by far the worst in Boston. Cold food, inattentive service....for the price of the meal, everything lacked considerably. With the all of the steak places in Boston, pick another. (Outdoor dining is by far the worst)

I've had a far better experience at the Palm in Las Vegas. Have now been to the Palm in Boston twice. Once fair at best service, once very good. Both times, very good appetizers. Both times, the very expensive steak was no better than one purchased at a supermarket and grilled at home. I am not impressed at all. And... More

We went here for the chicken parm after seeing it highlighted on the Phantom Gourmet as one of the "best in boston" It was aweful! No seasoning and no flavor. barely any sauce. Basically an unseasoned piece of chicken with cheese melted on it. I can't speak to their steaks, but our food was terrible.

Went here with friends, looking for a new place to go for dinner in Boston. The restaurant is very open, with high ceilings and tables spaced apart. We went on a Saturday night and were surprised that the restaurant wasn't even 1/2 full, but we were happy that it was quiet. The service was outstanding, not rushed at all. The... More

This place is not a very hip or exciting place and at the first glance the menu may appear boring. However, the food and the service more than make up for it! The food is absolutely amazing the service was Great. We tried the seared Tuna steak, fillet mignon, and the salmon and all three were great. Overall a very... More

Boston has so many steak houses it's hard to choose. But the Palm has an outside terrace that's heated for the cooler spring/summer nights. The inside is spectacular with it's sky high ceilings (a former bank) and marble throughout. Service is excellent and I've never been disappointed with my meal. I've had almost every selection on their menu from steak... More

Great filet and chops... try the goat cheese potatoes ... excellent wine list ... One of the most interesting restaurants I've ever visited... marble , 100 foot ceilings , artwork, chandeliers ,inside or outside dining, private rooms... redefines 'the power lunch'

I'm not sure how others had such a terrible experience. We were quickly greeted and seated, competently served, and the food was great. The bone-in ribeye was fantastic as were the spinach, asparagus, and hash browns. The wine list was comprehensive with something to find for anyone who pays $50 for a steak.

Everything about this meal was excellent. I came with a group of 10 for a business function after cocktail hour. Though we were there late, the staff was professional and extremely accomadating.
