    I went to The Palm for the first time with a girl friend and we had a fabulous time. We split the meatball, dry aged strip steak, broccoli, cheesecake and carrot cake -- everything was wonderful. Kylie's service was top notch; she gave great recommendations and her knowledge of the restaurant's history was a nice bonus of entertainment for the evening. I highly recommend sitting in her section and picking her brain on your visit!

    The food was really good but it took forever to get to us. Our reservation was at 7pm. We didn’t get our food until 8:11. The waiter seemed to be overwhelmed. The customer service wasn’t too bad but it was extremely slow.

    Atmosphere - The restaurant was dimly lit, had tablecloths and real tealights on the tables (vs. electric). The walls were wall to wall pictures of caricatures of famous people (I didn’t know many of them though!). Male patrons were wearing button down shirts, slacks, shoes (vs. sneakers) and most men were wearing blazers. Women were neatly dressed. It is a nice special occasion place and I can see business meals being had there as well. Food - Delicious! We split a shrimp cocktail, split the porterhouse steak, split hashbrowns and split chocolate cake. We each had one cocktail and I ordered a hot tea. The chocolate cake was worth every calorie. YUM! Service - AMAZING. Our waiter was really funny and made sure we were happy throughout the meal. I believe his name was Charles. On OpenTable, I had written that it was our anniversary. I wrote it kind of tongue in cheek but since I haven’t been in a serious relationship in 7 years, 9 months is momentous to me! When we got to the restaurant there was a happy anniversary card on the table. Charles asked us which anniversary it was and I laughed and told him it was 9 months. The rest of dinner, he teased me about it. Finally, he had 4 waiters come up and sing Happy Anniversary to us. I laughed so hard. The dinner was a blast. Good Food, Good Service, Good Company…a GREAT evening! Prices - it was over $300 for two of us, including tax and tip so, prices were steep. But everything was delicious!

    It is always a good time at the palm. It makes it even better when you have servers like Chuck to greet you take care of you and remember you even after two years of being gone due to Covid. This is one of our favorite spots and one of our favorite servers. Strongly recommend the Palm in DC and Chuck. You can’t go wrong and will have an amazing time.

    We wanted a great steakhouse to take our kids on our last night in DC. This was amazing! The service was perfect, fun ambiance with the characters on the walls. Other clientele were mainly businessmen and women but didn’t bother us at all.
