The Palm has a wonderful matinee day special for before the show - not too expensive and some really good dishes. The steaks here are superb, as is the lobster. Service is excellent, and the restaurant is not noisy or too crowded, as is often the case on matinee days. Make a reservation though, as it will fill up!

Well. The asparagus was mushy and burned. The mushrooms were tasteless. But the disappointing part was the steak. When a customer returns a steak almost in full and the waiters don't concern themselves with why. That says it all. One out of five. For edible. Like canned food. :( We actually left and went to another restaurant...!

Lior, I am so deeply disappointed about our sub par food and lack of attention to detail. Hearing that you left and went somewhere is about as upsetting for us as it gets. I would really like an opportunity to speak with you in a little more detail about your experience. If you have a moment, at your earliest convenience,... More

We came to town for a cousins birthday celebration at The Palm West side. It was a private party in a closed off room of the restaurant. The atmosphere and ambiance of this restaurant was spectacular! Very classy yet modern. Since it was a private party the meal and drinks were already paid for but the food was amazing. Hor'derves...

You can't go wrong with the Power Lunch - it is great food for a great value...And depending on when you have it you're unlikely to be hungry for dinner. As mentioned, I had the swordfish (which was the fish of the day) and it was excellent - crisp on the outside, tender on the inside and very nicely seasoned.... More

Good food and plenty of it. However, this is a very noisy restaurant, so I don't recommend if you are there for a lot of conversation.

Service from when you arrive is excellent. Food, as you'd expect from a Palm restaurant, is outstanding! I've been to three of these now - all fantastic.

No surprises, just great food and service. That is what the West Side Palm is all about. That and perfectly cooked beef and 2-10 pound lobsters!!!!

An absolutely divine lobster meal before we saw Kinky Boots on Broadway. The lobster meal is a perfection with the bibs, the butter dip and great service. Be prepared for a lot of noise and the feeling of being in a wholesale eatery which is so unfortunate given the high quality of the food and service. Otherwise excellent and lively... More

I had the Porterhouse medium rare. It did not have a lot of flavor and seemed raw on some parts, medium on others and medium rare in other spots. The creamed spinach was watery and average at best. My wife had the 3 lb lobster which she enjoyed, but I thought it was nothing special. The wine was excellent and... 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.
