Late Night Dinner

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.

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.

Sat down expecting great service and a great meal. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. The big item was that our entrees were delivered 10 minutes after we sat down. That is really bad since you did not yet get bread or the $50 bottle of wine you ordered. The waiter had a don't give a hoot... More

Wow, where do I start. We waited like 10 min for the host to come over and check us in. We were seated right near a waiter station. My cocktail was terrible (I didn't finish it and the waiter didn't even ask if I would like something else). I started off with a caprese salad with imported buffalo moozerella (that... More

Basically you are paying for the name. The steak was not cooked to order, the vegetables were over cooked and bread did not appeared and tasted stale. We were not impressed with the this restaurant. It was one step above a Long Horn.

Great service, wonderful bartenders. Nice room with noise levels that are not an issue at all. Steaks were good. The restaurant overlooks the Greenway which is a nice view as well.

This was our second trip to The Palm and we were hoping three second one was as enjoyable as the first. Sadly it was not. Food was good, waiter was good but the gentleman who hovered over our table waiting to clear our plates made us extremely uncomfortable and gave us all the wrong leftovers. Not sure we will retur

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.
