Great food...but a bit pricey..but portions are big!

The food and service were great, the place was packed and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection. The sides are definitely to be shared and one side would feed 3-4 people. My husband ordered the 4lb. lobster which was way too much meat for 1 person and very expensive ($104) but of course the price is not listed on the menu and they don't offer the price when you are ordering. We shared 1 piece of the 7 layer chocolate cake which was enough to share between 4 people. All in all the experience was a positive one....would I go back?? No, but only because there are thousands of other restaurants to try, not because we didn't enjoy it!

I don't know why The Palm always seems just a bit more of a rip-off than other similar steakhouses, but it is. Which isn't to say I've ever had a bad meal there, quite the contrary. Service is usually pretty hospitable, there's good people watching and always good steaks. Why a porterhouse has to run $10 above every other steakhouse in town is kind of annoying, but it usually is bigger. As is everything at The Palm. Big, big, big and lots, lots, lots of food.

Food was very good, atmosphere mediocre. Not such a good value, but near the theatres. Go to Smith and Wollensky or another more interesting steakhouse for the same (over-the-top) price and a more memorable evening.

Worth the lunchtime food coma

I have been to The Palm more times than my arteries and I care to count. I always order the filet mignon, which is always great--juicy and tender and just the right temperature, whichever one you choose. (The cajun seasoning is a nice addition to it, too.) I always order the creamed spinach, which is always great. (How can you go wrong?) I generally order the caesar salad, which is a coronary waiting to happen, but I think that it is worth it. The only thing that I have had there that I have not not enjoyed is the shrimp bruno, which was oily and tasteless. Save room for dessert: the cheesecake will ruin your diet but make your day. (Well, if you can stay awake for the rest of the day. . .)
