    Food was good, but I was surprised by the bad service. At the start of our evening, the waiter made an extremely strong drink (which didn’t taste good) and when we complained he took it personally. Perhaps next time a bartender should make the drinks. Our service was extremely slow. For what is generally a restaurant with excellent service I was surprised how slow everything was. And how little we saw our waiter.

    My date and I waited an hour after being seated, without anyone taking our food order. Finally we left without ordering nor eating, worst service ever, especially for a Palm Steakhouse.

    We have dined at several Palm locations in our travels. This by far was our worst experience . Waiter had no personality and misled us on size of appetizer causing us to order more than necessary. I guess he just wanted to drive up ticket. After dinner went to bar for one more cocktail. I had the absolute worst espresso martini ever. Switching to Joe’s when we travel . This was the DC location.

    The Palm has definitely changed since the COVID. This was our second time coming since then...basically just for the calamari&peppers which was mediocre at best. Small and overcooked. The bread that I save my calories for was not fresh and dry. Regretfully, we won't be visiting anytime soon.

    Often The Palm is pretty great. Sometimes, and this time, not so much. Worst $20 steak sandwich in the history of the world. Greazy Grizley and gee is all the meat you get? Good Focacia, but onions and peppers soggy. Yet singed! Edges burnt and bitter but nothing really caramelized. How can this be? New cooks? Or just "new menu item." Fries were very very good though. Would've been a bargain had it not been so greasy and a bit more meat. Oh well. Under Blackened Salmon on Over Salted Spinach - incredible... inedible! (The Spinach that is. The Salmon was pretty good. Maybe that's where the blackened went? Good thing - would have ruined the Fish if that's where it came from!) Excellent Salad to start. Maybe Sandwich guy should've ordered a GiGi instead? Or a Steak Salad. Always a winner every time before! Excellent Petite Filet. Meh Lobster Bisque. Good Desserts on the Prix Fixe lunch. Best Bet, probably. Good Bread and Butter but clumsily served. Extreme delay between appetizers and entrees. New Waitress? Nice but Yikes! So slow sandwich guy (yours truly) had to leave before desserts arrived as the parking meter was running out fast. Yeah, should've gone with the Prix Fixe myself, or a Burger, Salad, or anything else, but just had to try something new, and always wondered about the Steak ala Stone. Who could make a better Steak Sandwich than the Palm? My mistake. Not this time. Sorry. But but but. Maybe they'll knock it outta the park next time, as they have so many times before. Still gotta recommend The Palm (BUT!)

    Very professional upon arrival, entry door was not clearly marked, table was very nice, waiter very good and helpful, suggested we split the salad, very large and very good. Dinner was not on The Palm level. Chillian Bass was bland and green base was not good, the filet seemed too salty. We will return; but need to be honest. The people side of The Palm was very nice and consistent.

    This was my first time at The Palm. The food and the service were very good. Will be returning to try other items on their menu. The only thing that I didn’t like was the noise level; it was a little loud. My guests and I had a hard time hearing each other at a table for four. The other diners weren’t loud or disruptive. Not sure if it was just how the acoustics are in the restaurant, the set-up, or what; not sure. Overall, great restaurant!

    We always go to The Palm. The steak we ordered had a funky taste. Waiter kept trying to tell us it’s because it’s “ Dry Aged”. We eat steak way too much at The Palm and other fine Steak Places and Dry aged never had this bad taste. Definitely something wrong w the meat. Both my wife and I have not felt well since this meal. They did replace the steak with another that was perfectly fine. We will definitely be following up with Management later today or Monday. It’s a shame as we love The Palm but this really put a damper on her Birthday celebration.

    I have been in The Palm in DC a lot of times. So, I can compare. The noise was awfull, we had to request a change of Table. The steak was overcooked. The side order of asparagus never arrived. The wedge salad did not have almost dressing. A very sad experience!

    We checked in on time at 12.00pm and were assigned a nice table at terrace. We ordered drinks first and waited too much for them (club soda and diet coke). Only 1 waiter for 8 tables at terrace. We order food and waited 40 min for very simple straight forward lunch plates. I called twice the attention of the hostess to look out for our plates. I have been to other The Palm restaurants and this location is well below average in service quality. Agustin Arellano
