A group of 8 from work went for dinner. We had drinks, appetizers, and dinner. The steaks were disappointing given the price and the reputation of the restaurant. The brussel sprouts were under-cooked. The asparagus was soggy. The waitstaff were excellent and the ambiance was nice, but I wouldn't go back for the food.

The noise level is still problematic at this Palm locaton. Wasn't jammin when we arrived, so noise was tollerable... then picked as the night progressed. Otherwise, much improved since my first visit soon after they opened. Salads/apps good. Steaks and lobsters very good. Sides excellent. Love the cranberry walnut bread. Better for a business dinner than a romantic dinner.

The superb lobster bisque is served from silver pots, the chicken Parmiagana was amazing and the seven-layer chocolate cake was exquisite...I dream about it! Loved the decor, ambience and location. This is a definite Boston must-do!

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
