We had take out here and it was very good. We tried the chicken parmigiana and the crab cakes and both were delicious. The bread was also awesome. The price is high though, but it’s worth it. Net time we will try the dessert.

I had the lobster bisque and while it did contain real lobster, it was a bit on the low side IMO! It was delicious! A bit crowded around lunch time. Parking can be had, however, Uber/Lyft and the T are good options also!

Been a few times. Wasn't a huge fan. Portions certainly aren't worth the price.. or the wait. Everything always seems to take way longer than it should. Service is meh. Everything is just meh.

We had a very low key of salads and appetizers and drinks Sunday night. The service was just like a neighborhood bar and the food was without exception very good. They have a great bar and a great liquor selection.

When I had dinner here there were perhaps two or three women patrons and approximately 30 men. it is a steak place with huge portions. The staff ranged form over-solicitous to neglectful. In other words, sometimes they hovered and sometimes there were long periods when I didn't see them. I had the small NY strip , which was large by... More

Ok... so we're at The Palm in Boston now.... Ordered the 14 oz NY Strip and hoping that it's all that The Palm represents. At this moment in time, the caesar salad is a BUST. Saturated in dressing and stale croutons... and the clams casino was HORRIBLE. I'm a native of Cape Cod and grew up eating clams.... in all... More

A Boston standard for many years, however the Palm has only been at this location for about a year or two now. A high end steak and chop house that is also famous for its chicken parm, prices are reasonable and are about what you would expect in the city. Steaks and chops dominate the menu and have received rave... More

the quality is there and you know it's expensive when you go there the staff was knowledgeable and attentive every item was perfectly prepared including 1 request for an overly well done steak which should be illegal not rushed and effort made to insure we were comfortable

What a great evening and excellent meal at The Palm in Boston. We had never been to this location and it was top-notch. Our Anniversary dinner was so enjoyable thanks to the great service by Marcelo and team. We joined the 837 club and will back soon.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
