    So So

    Took my boyfriend there ast night for his birthday. We had 8pm reservations. Got there at 8pm and didn't get seated until 8:30pm. The host said he "couldn't perform miracles". Guess they don't really honor reservations here. Food was average... seemed like the quality of my strip steak was suspect. Service was okay- wait staff seemed tired and burnt out. Overall, would not come back- there's plenty of other steakhouses out there that deserve my money.

    Depends on what you're looking for

    Have wanted to eat here since I saw Bud Fox eating there in the movie Wall Street years ago. I was a little disappointed. The place is very loud and testosterone driven. Many heavy hitting guys there. I went on my birthday with my girlfriend so I wasn't in that rowdy state of mind. The filet was not as good as it should have been for the price. Its worth checking out because of the history but I doubt I will go back.

    Not what it was

    Went for the lobster special twice recently. It is just average. The side dishes are limited to the "summer" menu, and do not include things like spinach, or their 1/2 and 1/2 fried potatoes and onions. Instead it is ordinary french fries with a drop of parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. The brocoli with bacon was good. The lobsters are inconsistent. We had the 4 pound lobsters-mine was overcooked. The special no longer includes coffee which it did in prior years. The special, at $90 for 2 salads, (quite good) a 4 pound lobster to share, and 2 sides, is still a good value given the price of lobster, but it is not an outstanding meal. The restaurant is not what it was.

    Palm is the old reliable Place

    Well to the last reviewer who ordered the veal parm; don't be too surprised that Palm does Italian dishes as its roots are actually Italian; its founders were from Parma, Italy and the name of the restaurant was Anglisized to "Palm". Even today, the original Palm (837 Third Ave) has its Italian roots prominantly displayed. While quality has diminished a bit of the past 15 or so years (the ratings of prime beef have suffered a bit) you can count on a great value for the money. Service can be brusque, yes, but show up a few times and you are treated like family. All in all, a fun night for the carnivores.

    Instead of having great filet mignon...

    The filet mignon is one of the best in New York. But if you really want to try something spectacular, try the Veal Parmagiana. I know this breaks the rule of "not eating Italian food in a non-Italian restaurant," but you won't believe how incredible it is. Veal so tender that you can cut it with a fork....the Palm's own incredible tomato sauce...and extraordinary cheese that is layered over the entire thin slab of veal. I took an Italian friend of mine here (who thought I must be crazy) and he found out I was quite sane.

    Some parts great, some parts not great

    I had high expectations of this place. I got a gift certificate there as a birthday gift and was very excited after finding out that Ari Gold frequents the LA restaurant. I went at 6:00 Friday night and was pretty shocked at how empty the place was. However, it did fill up fairly quickly. The atmosphere is great - cool art on the walls, with an old historic feel (seemed like a place I could see Michael Corleone come in and start shooting). Anyway, the service was good, but the waiter didn't seem to know what he was talking about when reciting the specials. First round of drinks was weak. I had a Jack and Coke and my girlfriend got an apple martini - both had little alcohol in them, so the next round, I asked them to put a little more in and they did EXACTLY that. The entrees were great. My girlfriend got the scallops special, which she loved and I got the Filet Mignon, which was one of the best I've ever had (and I'm pretty picky when it comes to my steak). The sides were poor though. The mashed potatoes were cold and had little flavor and the string beans were simply steamed with no seasoning. I could have made better sides. Overall, it was decent meal, had its ups and downs. Don't know if I'd go back. For the price and reputation, I was expecting more. It was a damn good Filet though.

    Stick to Steak?

    Recently went on a business and I must say, none of us ordered steak, which I believe may have been a mistake. Majority had the pasta special, and it was just Ok. My seared ahi tuna salad was not very fresh or very appetizing. Even the strawberries for dessert were very mushy. The best part was the shrimp cocktail appetizer and whipped cream with the dessert. I must say the service was good though. If I return, i'll stick to the specialty of the house!
