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.

You can't find a much better place for a memorable lunch in DC. As always great service and great atmosphere. And, you just never know who might show up. Would be five stars except main course was only good, not memorable. Probably my fault for making the wrong choice.

I had made my reservation for 6 of us on open table and when I needed to change the time, it was not available on their site. I called the restaurant and Nicole was extremely friendly and took care of it immediately. She greeted us again when we arrived and couldn't have been any better. I'm sorry I don't recall... More
