We were with another couple, each of us celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We wanted a nice dinner and expected it would be pricey, but the meal was well worth the money spent. From appetizers through dessert, everything was excellent! The service was also superb. For an everyday dinner The Palm is expensive but for our special occasion it was... More

The Palm has an upscale feel but with an exciting energy that moves through the restaurant. This is the best place to have a wonderful meal with a great group of friends. The Palm has private rooms to accommodate large groups and the service is always impeccable! The menu will please everyone, as the variety of selections boast all of... More

We had a 5:30 dinner reservation before a concert across the street at the Arena. Being lovers of wine, and familiar with The Palm markup of their list, we brought 2 outstanding bottles from a local wine merchant for dinner. The Palm's corkage fee is $25/bottle, well worth saving in some instances a more than 100% markup for a bottle.... More

We were in town on business and recommended this place by a local. There was a very large group of us so the menu was limited to 3 items but it was exceptional. My wife and I both had the Sea Bass. Highly recommend. The Cheese Cake was average and the key Lime Pie was, let's call it "strange" there... More

Located right off Broadway in a convenient location. Atmosphere is very inviting & relaxing. Service was prompt and all the staff were very courteous. The Chilean Sea Bass was off the hook great! But seriously, it was cooked perfectly. All the side items: spinach, mushrooms & half and half were tremendous. The Creme Brûlée for desert was superb...as was the... More

Looking for something better than the endless Nashville burger & pizza joints. The Palm seemed an attractive alternative. After perusing the wine list and menu, we decided this was not the place for us. $23 wine glasses, pricey appetizers and a non-remarkable looking list of $45-50 entrees made us bail. A first for us. I noticed that many reviewers love... More

We had lunch here and the food was good. I had the 3 course lunch special with the Filet Mignon Medallions. This was really a good deal $26 for 3 courses. I upgraded to the Lobster Bisque. It was good but I've had better - especially in New England. The side was Half & Half - half onion rings and... More

Dinner with 4 people...au gratin potatoes were enjoyed...as were the 14 oz. and 9 oz. steaks. My wedge salad with tomatoes and bleu cheese was DROWNING in dressing...making it inedible. We enjoyed the lobster bisque--not very much for the price---and the scallop and tuna appetizers, both were amazing. Huge markup on wine--the bottle we ordered retails for $39, but was... More

I have never written a bad review as usually I only I write about places that I think are good and worth a visit. After going to this restaurant tonight I could not hold my tongue. Terrible. I have eaten twice at a Palm restaurant in Beverley Hills - great - I did not write reviews at that time. This... More

Wow! Top notch surf & turf, appetizers were great and they made us feel special. We had an amazing experience and couldn't ask for more. They split our lobster and shelled it for us. The steak was cooked perfectly. Fabulous chocolate cake that was enough for 4. We were celebrating a surprise birthday and they made it special. Excellent ambiance... More
