My wife and I arrived sooner than expected so I enjoyed a well martini in the bar, It was delicious. Shaken not stirred, without being told.. Dinner was outstanding. I had the porterhouse steak and my wife had the lobster tail. We shared a side order of the tasty sautéed spinach. Get the lobster tail here! It was the best... More

We had a perfect dinner: nice ambience, very nice staff, great food. The steaks were excellent and the dessert superbs (despite the calories listing). Prices in line with the quality, for dinner reservation is definitively a must.

It was fast a friendly for sure, but the food was average at best... a bit hit or miss. Crab cakes and crab salad were good. Fillet mignon was 'plunked' in the middle of a white plate with no garnish and was just a piece if meat; veal marsala lacked any flavor; Lobster bisque was very good; the salads were... More

The Palm is always great. I wish they did not start listing the calories on the menu. The carrot cake is excellent.

A steak house is a steak house, but the cut of meat and the quality are what distingushes one steak house from another. The Palm served up perfectly cooked premium steaks during our dinner. The food came out promptly and the appetizers were also excellant.

Pre-theater dinner for 7 people on Sat. Nov. 12th... I do go here often, but usually it's just the two of us. This time we had 7 dor dinner. When we were seated I explained to the server that we had to be leaving the restaurant no later than 7pm, and we were. Yes, they're sort of a chain, I... More

Yes, I like steaks. While I don't get to eat at the Palm very often, I always enjoy it when I do. The service very good for one. They kept everything coming (when you are a single person, I think you tend to eat faster). I ordered a New York strip, creamed spinach and mushrooms. I ordered the smaller portion... More

The servers were great, professional, attentive, our steaks were cooked to perfection, the side was delicious, the dessert more than plenty! Our cocktails were great as well, the wine fabulous and the dessert wine a... More

Dined at Palm on a recent business trip with a group of 20 colleagues. The restaurant was very accommodating and service was prompt and attentive. The 14oz filet mignon I ordered was cooked to perfection and the accompanying truffle and lobster sauce was incredible! The side dishes of creamed spinach, smashed potatoes, potato "cake", and brussel sprouts complimented the steak... More

After so much anticipation for this historic steak house, we were highly disappointed at the mediocre food. The restaurant is in desperate need of a good cleaning too. The counter top area next to our table (dividing two sections of the restaurant) was so dirty and gross I actually had to ask the waitress to please wipe it off afraid... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
