Great steaks and lobsters! Big portions -- Palm fries always a favorite. Good spot for Washington celebrity sightings. Tables in front not as loud if you need to discuss business.

This visit was a disappointment. Bad atmosphere, lack of interest. Reasonable food but not for that price. Service very, very quick far to fast. 2 course plus coffee in 50 minutes at $ 170,00.

We have been to several Palm restaurants in our travels. However, this time, we didnt order steak. Bill had the best lamb chops he has had anywhere, ever!!! I thoroughly enjoyed the veal martini. And, the staff were awesome, as expected!

This place is too noisy and service is below standard. The food is OK, but expensive, with most dishes in the US$50 range. The wine list is extensive but lacks good wines at decent prices (no good bottle below US$120). In the end, a regular meal without wine approaches US$100 per person. They don't even come close to 1/2 Michelin... More

We were using the $99 voucher which they have pretty frequently. You each get an appetizer and share a 4 pound lobster ($10 for each additional pound) plus a side dish. Our waiter was terrific, very friendly and knowledgeable. The specials sounded great but our mind was set on lobster. After a couple of cocktails we started with an appetizer... More

Two adults and two children for an early dinner at the Palm. The food was very good indeed, the cocktails were good, and they accommodated some variations on what was on the menu at the request of the kids. Their steaks and burgers were just perfect, as were the deserts. A bit pricy, but we knew that before we went.... More

If you want a great restaurant with consistent reliable food, The Palm is the place to go. Excellent filet and lobster. Good wine list. Best to be an 837 Club member. Great location. Highly recommend.
