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

Well, tonight was the night. I chose the Veal Martini, veal in a brown Marsala sauce with sun dried tomatoes,... More

One scallop starter and one filet Mignon plus three beers plus three sides came out at $145 before tip. Service was fine food was fine seating was just OK, beers were fine. 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 were greeted by Loren the manager and Brian the General Manager that is responsible for our perfect experience from start to finsih. You enter and your eyes take you on a trip... 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

Rainy night in Boston so we were happy to get into the restaurant and while it was recommended unless you are a Bostonian politician/developer/businessman/etc this place is not for tourist very boring to much fake Italian presentation and the food is mediocre for what you paid but provably an institution to the locals, every table seems to be celebrating something...

I recently had a girls' night Birthday celebration dinner at the Palm..It was exceptional service, pleasant, knowledge and attentive without being overbearing. The martini's were perfection. Three people had the sword fish and they all loved it. I had the lamb chops which were the best I've had. All portions were plentiful. Though the prices are on the higher side... More
