    Ate at the bar area/booth and John was phenomenal in service and mixing cocktails. The food was excellent, kudos to the Chef. Management was attentive as always as Tim stopped by the table to greet us and ensure all was good and Belinda came by to check as well. It was another great and relaxing dinner at the Palm-San Antonio, That's why we keep coming back. Great way to close out a busy day,

    Really nice restaurant. Food was good but not great! It was still a great experience. The Lobster Gnocchi was the best thing I tasted. Nicely seasoned great flavor. You must try it! The Lobster needed garlic butter…. My steak was a little under cooked and the potatoes au gratin and the chicken Parmesan was missing salt and flavor. Other than that, the staff was extremely welcoming, the atmosphere was casual/elegant. I would go again when I’m in town. Oh and p.s the chef gave us a little treat to taste and it was absolutely amazing!!!!!!

    This was our Anniversary dinner. We hade never dined here. Quite honestly the best overall dining experience we’ve had. Every course was excellent. Service was outstanding. The price is high, but the food was worth it to us. It is a louder restaurant, but not too loud to have a pleasant conversation. We definitely intend to return to have some of the options we weren’t able to have this time.

    Visiting San Antonio…. Looking for a special place for dinner. Food was excellent. They were short staffed like a lot of restaurants right now, but the service didn’t suffer. The atmosphere is old school. It has elegance. It feels subtle and intimate…. Except for the TVs in the bar area. They seem out of place. We will go back on our return visits to San Antonio.

    Ask for a half circle booth. Most pleasant seating for a private conversation. Food was above excellent with steak cooked exactly as ordered and Lump crab cake was perfect with a light delicious sauce atop. Great service too.

    Very dissapointed. Our Mother's Day journey into downtown to treat mom to a special lunch was a very expensive dissapointment. For about $130 less, I can get better service at Whataburger, and a better steak at Chili's. As a table of four middle-aged well-dressed Landry-card carrying patrons, we received substandard service from a young man who clearly had better things to be mindful of than serving us. He forgot a salad and had to be reminded after we received the main course, then brought it out late even after it was canceled. Then he poured the last of our wine bottle into my glass alone, leaving three others empty and me embarrassed for taking all the wine. This is seriously amateur wait service. No personality, no engagement, no happy wishes for the two Mother's at our table. In retrospect, I find it insulting and condescending. For a "world famous" restaurant, I feel like I've been ripped off by a tourist trap illusion of "fine dining." Never ever again Palm...

    Mother’s Day doesn’t mean anything to this establishment. Only allowed the dinner menu for lunch. Amy didn’t listen and misrepresented my food selection. Food was fair at best. Not a value for one of the most expensive menu’s in town. Disappointed.

    The food was terrible. We split a large filet and lobster tail. The filet was cut horizontally instead of vertically so we got this thin, overcooked piece of meat. Idk of a steakhouse that cuts steak like that? The creamed spinach showed up halfway through the meal and was soupy. The server ladled it out with a spoon into little bowls. The Caesar salad had so much garlic in it, I tasted it for hours afterward. The service started out ok…but the server disappeared once some of the food arrived. I will not be going back. It was such a disappointment.
