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 location in Houston.

We have been going to the Palm for years and have had the same waiter for years. I have never ever been disappointed by anything that I've ordered. This is the only place that I will order a steak at because I know that it will be delicious and worth it. They have an excellent wine list and great desserts-the chocolate cake is a must have. Great place for steak and lobster, but all other dishes are great too! The restaurant also has a great space for parties and a private room for a larger dinner.

consistently excellent

I've been going to Palm for 55 years - originally to the original in NYC. Never disappointed - always look forward to the next time. Drinks, food & wine always up to the same standard. Excellent waiters - maybe not as fast as some people expect, but are you there to dine or eat? Just right pace of service for me.

This place was highly recommended and left alot to be desired. The service was excellent but the food was terrible. The bread was stale, the salad was wilted, the steak was definately overcooked. The food was comparable to something you would get at a cafetaria.

great lobster and sea bass

the lobster was to die for and better than Pappas Steakhouse. staff was the best we have ever experienced. lobster bisque was good but not enough meat like Capital Grille.

great service..

Not-so-great first experience. I had high expectations since it's one of my friend's top steakhouse choices but I'd beg to differ. Steak was over-cooked and a bit under seasoned. Even with a reservation, we waited close to an hour for our table. The bar area gets very noisy and crowded so I wouldn't suggest it if you want to actually have a conversation. However, the service was GREAT! I'd be willing to give it one more try... perhaps, on a week night.

Good Food, Ok Atmosphere

My wife and I recently went on a Saturday night with two friends out ours and really enjoyed our dinner. There is a good variety of foods to choose from in case everyone does not want a steak or lobster. Our table had fish (Ahi Tuna), Pork (Marsala like disk) and two steaks. All the meals were good but one of the steaks was ordered very rare and came out too close to medium rare.

Service was excellent and we even received a free dessert since it was our first trip.

The only negative is that since the room is very noisy and it was difficult to carry on a conversation without yelling.

Just like New York, in Houston!

I love the old style of this restaurant... the decor, painted walls... very retro New York in the 50's and 60's. Our steaks came out perfectly prepared and sizzling. The well-to-do mostly male business crowd lent an air of conservative republicanism to the meal. The service was tremendous and the bill was too. No problem- I'll expense it!

The best lobster in town!

If you're going here for anything except the lobster, you are going wrong! Seriously, I don't think I have ever had better lobster in this city. They fly them in from Nova Scotia and weigh 3-5 lbs. I would also highly recommend their caprese salad made with buffallo mozzarella. If you're going for steak, there are better places in the city, but nothing beats The Palm for lobster!

Nothing but average attempt

I read a review that mentioned that the mashed potatoes were fake. They are indeed fake. The Palm charges a premium price, but delivers something akin to airport fine dinning. If you can't even mash a potato how can they be trusted to make anything complex. I dropped $300 for lunch with friends and would not spend another $1 in the place. It is pretendica fine dinning...don't be fooled.
