General Info:
The Palm Restaurant is one of the oldest, family-owned, white tablecloth restaurants in the United States. Original started as a New York City steakhouse in 1926, it has since grown into a restaurant chain of over 25 restaurants. The name, Palm, originated when the proprietors obtained a business license. They wanted to call it Parma, but because of their Italian accents, it translated into Palm. The restaurant specializes in Italian cuisine and offers specialties, such as chicken scallopine, veal martini, pork chop malfata and linguini. Apart from Italian cuisine, the restaurant also serves a variety of steaks and seafood dishes. It runs a wholesale meat company to cater to the customer s demand for steaks. It also sells nearly 25,000 pounds of lobster per week. The restaurant operates the 837 Club and provides special club points, benefits and offers to its members. Additionally, it offers gift certificates and cookbooks. The Palm Restaurant provides a venue for private parties, including bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, get-togethers and corporate business events. It features private boardrooms and large private dining rooms and also provides amenities, such as fax machines, conference call equipment, telephones and overhead projectors. Its staff assists customers in the selection of menu and decoration. The Palm Restaurant maintains a presence in Los Angeles.

Very Disappointed

This is my first restaurant review. I've enjoyed prime steakhouses throughout the country and was looking forward to trying this one especially since my wife and I were attending a concert at the nearby Nokia Theatre. Well, it didn't quite pan out to be the experience that it's reputation precedes.\r Beautiful Christmas tree and an inviting ambiance. The food was another matter. After the very good Caesar salad, my... view more

Maybe I've been jaded by the delectable New England lobsters I grew up with in the Northeast, but th

He and his buddy decided to share a 51/2 lb. behemoth. They requested that it be boiled, rather than split and broiled. The server said that the kitchen could do that. However, when the lobster was brought to the table, it was beautifully presented, but broiled and split! When my husband questioned her, in quite a haughty tone, she insisted that ""this is the way we serve our lobsters."" My husband repeated his ... view more

Overpriced. Decent Food. $$$$$ grubbing waiter

Our family of 8 went to the PALM for the first time in celebration of a birthday. I made reservations so we were seated right away. The management must have told the server that we were celebrating a birthday so he mentioned that they had something special. The food was generally fine. The main problem that I had was with the overcharges. I guess each item was priced individually. So, you were charged for each water,... view more

Great food and great service!

Ive always heard so much about the Palm and decided to try since I recentley moved into one of the lofts downtown and the Palm is just 2 blocks away. Our server was very informative about the menu and guided us through the entire experience which was comforting. I knew they were known for there steaks so I decided to try the 16 oz. New York, and the server suggested that I have it blackened which was an excellent dec... view more

the staff makes you want to stay all night long--extremely friendly like family; lobster is better t

i was so pleasantly pleased when i dined at the palm in the downtown area. i felt like my server really tried to help me find the perfect meal for me and my friends. i ended up getting the surf-n-turf, my friend had this new item on the menu, the pork malfata, and we all shared a bunch great sides.\r \r i am from boston, and i was floored by how great the lobster was....way better than what i have had in boston. ... view more

mediocre food + bad management = horrible experience

honestly, for as much hype as this restaurant (chain) receives, it is very overrated. i used one of their 'private' dinning rooms to entertain clients and the experience was less than stellar; the food was average as was the service. to compound the problem, their management has been horrible with regards to follow-up issues; hiding behind the ""we are so busy this time of year"" excuse. please, do yourself (and y... view more

LA foodies beware...

My wife and I went to the Palm for the first time thinking we would kick off the Labor Day weekend with a nice meal. It was quite the opposite. The food was so disappointing and expensive that it drove me to sign up for City Search just so I could write a review and spare other innocent LA foodies from falling victim. (no joke). We were first surprised by the prices. Much more expensive than my favorite chop pla... view more
