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.

Private party Monday 9/19/16 (may not be indicative of walk-in). I cannot say enough about this restaurant. Enjoy old-world service, the best food ever and commensurate prices. I also have a previous experience at a previous location. As to the menu: explore whatever appeals. The filets and lamb were especially subject to good comments. The cold seafood apps were exceptional.... More

Food was excellent. Waiter was horrible! Had to have another waiter get my drink from the bar. We asked for lemons with our waters never got them. Waiter said he talked to the chef and food would be ready in two minutes. 15 minutes later he brought it out. Outside patio at night is awesome

Had dinner at the Palm with a large group of colleagues and everyone enjoyed excellent food in a really nice environment. The Palm is an American Italian Steakhouse offering American classics including steaks and lobster, but with an Italian flair along with some classic Italian dishes. I had the lobster bisque, steak and chocolate cake. The dishes were really well... More

So much fun! Six of us went for musical bingo and it was a blast! Slightly slow service but great drinks and a ton of fun- can't wait for next time!

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.
