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

We got off to a slightly slow start for dinner service wise but it soon got back on track and was a memorably delicious meal. We sat on their outside patio area which is really nice on a warm summer evening. The Palm makes killer cocktails and these were no exception. We had their summer lobster special for two which...

Good service, just a lunch, menu, was seated near a work station. Whatever was in the lobster roll was spicy, couldn't really taste the lobster. $$$, next time will try the steak, which was pricy for lunch time

Have been here before. The food is Boston-standard (your truly, an Italian, is not impressed), but the place is attractive and well-decorated. The menu is, in true New England fashion, pretty similar to everybody else's. The purpose of my note, though, is not about describing the fried calamari or the filet mignon. It is about something else, a rare gesture... More

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.
