  • What a Great Last Night

    They say that the best restaurant in the world is the one that knows you. The London Palm knew me. And I loved the London Palm. What a great shame that it has now closed -- hopefully it will soon return to a London location. I can't say enough about the staff. And anyone who missed the last night missed a good party!

    We went for dinner to The Palm for the last time with its planned closing on 28 March. The food was still of a good standard, but there was a distinct "end of term" feel to the place. It is a shame that the restaurant is closing in London - the chain is popular and has a good reputation in the US, and I felt in recent times they had started to get the menu and prices right for the local market. We will miss it and want to thank the staff and wish them the best of luck for the future.

    Took my beloved for a late lunch / early supper to avoid the usual hustle and bustle of the City, only saw a few clients seated so service was swift and polite. Menu was well laid out and clear with a lovely choice of appetisers and delicious choices, especially the USDA steaks of which I chose a ribeye steak whilst my partner chose the more traditional roast beef sunday lunch. Our waiter unfortunately was completing his shift and was extremely friendly, his replacement was outstanding and very attentive to our dining experience. I would say that the overall price was just about right at just shy under £150 for lunch and wine, would definitely recommend meat lovers for sure and look forward to a repeat visit in the near future.

    When we arrived at The Palm we noticed that the decor was immediately underwhelming. That said, the food is spectacular, drinks are simply amazing, our service was 5 star, and the management staff noted our anniversary and reserved the window seat. If you come to The Palm you will leave feeling satisfied and special. We had an incredibly romantic night and will be back again soon!

    Extremely good food - amazing steak and sides, unfaultable.... in addition to some great service. The prices go along to match this, which made the restaurant quiet for a Wednesday night business dinner - however a great evening was had - the steak really was excellent.

    Dined on 22/2/2014
    6 of us dined there on a Saturday night, the restaurant was very quiet yet after being seated for more than 20 mins we had to ask if we could have drinks. The same happened to order our food, in a restaurant where you are greeted by 2 hosts you don't expect to ask for service, especially as the restaurant was so quiet. I have been before where the waiter shows all the cuts of meats prior to ordering this did not happen. The steaks were excellent the sides were ok. There are now so many good steak restaurants in London that I am not sure I would be rushing back to Palms.

    "The Palm" in London is every bit as good a steak house as it's NYC parent. The T-Bone and the Fillet were perfection. "Melt in your mouth" comes to mind. The seared tuna tasted as fresh and good as just caught in the Florida Keys. I also believe that the service that night was the best, most attentive I have experienced in 30 yrs of London Dining out. The prices are high end but the quality was obvious. Give it a try. FP

    Friendly welcome, seated promptly, downhill from there. Martini still not arrived when the first course did, so canceled the martini, asked for wine instead. Major lapse! Still another 5 mins before the wine came so we were 1/2 through firsts without drinks. Carpaccio very good. Ordered the veal parmigiana, knowing it as excellent from other Palms. Yes, Palm is a steakhouse and could question the wisdom of ordering a non-steak main, but i've had this dish at other Palms. The cutlet was dry and crunchy, the sauce was good but too sparse, and the cheese had over-baked and was crispy around the edges. Needed additional marinara sauce just to eat it. Felt the dish had spent too much time under a heat lamp. Real let down. Never again in London.

    Two of us had dinner there on Friday. Started with bartender Dale who was friendly and professional, set the right mood. Food was delicious, one of us thought it was the best steak they had ever had in London. Breads were delicious. Food is very good but overall its a pricey night out, so not for the budget conscious Its definitely worth a try though.

    I had been there for several times and I can tell at Palm you get perfect steaks. The service is very child friendly. Last time I wasn´t fully satisfied with the french fries, which were for my taste better in the past. They apologized that mistake and took them off the bill - that was fair. It´s a restaurant where you can have a very nice evening when you have the whish for a nice conversation because it´s not so noisy. When I will visit London a stake at Palm is a must for me.

    Dined on 13/12/2013
    Received luke warm reception. Waiter difficult to understand, did not receive full attention esp when placing orders. Mind and eyes appeared to be elsewhere. 3 out of 4 of us chose Jumbo Shrimp starter. Waiter had to go and check if available. after some time came back to say they were. Should have been a warning. any competent waiter would know what is available. Assume they were being defrosted. They were limp and flavourless. At £16 each you expect top quality. My friend remarked 'put a blind fold on me and I wouldn't know what I was eating'. On reflection should have sent them back. Steaks and lobster were excellent. Having eaten at Palm New York & Washington were service was excellent (as always in US) this was disappointing visit

    I've heard of Palm but never managed to go due to long schedules but last week, I went and it was worth the wait! I started off with some fried prawns with some light batter accompanied with this amazing sauce. Then I took THE fillet mignon, it MELTED in my mouth!!!! I took with this the three cheese potato gratin which nearly stole the show from the fillet. I tried the fries which were getting more and more addicting as you ate them. The staff was outstandingly polite and at our service. AMAZING A MUST TRY

    Having eaten at the Palm Staek House in Las Vegas I was keen to try the Palm London restaurant and I have to say my visit was absolutely fantastic, I knew the USDA steaks would be great but the 12oz Fillet mignon steak I had was probably the best steak I have ever in eaten in a London restaurant. We arraived at 8pm and had a great table in the main restaurant, the service was immediate and very attentive and advice on the menu was offered by our friendly waiter. My Main Cousre fillet steak was incredible.... chargrilled on the outside and succulent and pink on the inside - I just did not want it to finish, we had some side dishes to go along with the steak and I can definitely recomend the Asparagus Fritti which were crunch and sweet.

    Another great meal with friendly and entertaining service. Certainly not the cheapest but definitely one of the best steak restaurants, I know of, in the world. Just a word of advise to the gents, if you intend walking from Knightsbridge, avoid Sloane Street as it makes it an incredibly expensive afternoon.

    First impression was that I was back in the USA, this restaurant is what you would experience in a good steakhouse stateside. the service was on par and the quality of the starter was excellent we had the chicken liver pate and it was fantastic, buttery and well blended so it was silky smooth. My wife had the Filet steak, USDA, and parmesan fires both where excellent and would recommend both. I had the chicken parmesan and again it was as good as any USA restaurant. I do not know why more places do this dish as it is superb. Definitely will be back to the Palm soon.

    Having had the pleasure of eating here many times, but hitherto, evenings only, we decided to give it a go for lunch. The food, as always, was superb but given that it wasn't as busy, it was a perfect place to catch up with an old friend. We sat talking and laughing for over three hours with unobtrusive yet attentive service. It's certainly not the cheapest place to eat in London but if you're looking for a relaxed venue with great food and service, it's idealic. If you like The Cut, but think that "steak and chips" is best in jeans and a sweater, this is the place for you.

    Dined on 5/9/2013
    I have eaten at them all - Hawksmoor, Goodman, etc. The Palm just does it better. Not the most stylish of the bunch but the quality of the meat and the expertise of the chefs provides steak in the American style to match the best of NYC (not far off a recent trip to Peter Luger in Brooklyn). Go when you need the best steak in town.
