When you go to The Palm, you should expect excellent service, great food and a comfortable atmosphere. This is what made them famous and the Washington DC location does not disappoint. It's a great location, just off DuPont Circle and the room is energetic without being too loud to have a conversation. Food is expertly prepared and delicious. Great spot for a business dinner or a romantic evening.

What a wonderful meal on our last night. The service was impeccable. The filet mignon was delicious, but the 4 cheese potatoes au gratin stole the show. Yum.

This is a very busy restaurant frequented by many "important" and well know people involved in the government. Fun to people watch. The food is just so so at this Palm....

“Professional Service Makes This Great”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I've never been to a Palm steakhouse, but I will go back. At the Palm DC, the staff is mindful of every detail, right down to turning the table to allow guests to slide comfortably into the booths. Lunch was fantastic - I had the ahi tuna salad and some sort of special seafood soup which was absolutely amazing. The decor is very cool in an old-school sort of way. Our food arrived promptly, and the portions were quite large.

This is clearly a place to see and be seen in DuPont Circle. I highly recommend The Palm, and I will return.

“DC Institution”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Tommy is still at the front and Chuck still runs the dining room and it doesn't get much better than that for steak and lobster dinner in DC. You might see famous pols or newscasters at their booths in the back but that's ok by me. Excellent steaks, big lobsters, good Italian and great big desserts. Love it!
