The food and service is amazing!! Our anniversary lunch was customized with hearts on our white linened table and a signed card from the staff. As always, our food was perfect! The Power Lunch Portions are huge but save room for dessert because the cheesecake is rich and luscious. Well worth the money!

I have eaten at The Palm in Houston and knew what to expect. This is primarily a steak restaurant. The food quality was good. The service was attentive.

We were given a gift card as a gift so we decided to go here for my husband's birthday. We were told that the gift card had expired in September and there was nothing they could do for us. We were celebrating my husband's birthday so you would think they would at least offer a complimentary slice of cake. Nope.... More

Had a 7:15 pm reservation for cold Monday night. The whole dinning room had only 3 tables customers. Waiter took our drink and food order pretty quick. But we did not get our salad until 8;20 pm. What a poor service in this upscale restaurant!!

We were treated like royalty, had the full Palm treatment, spent 3 hours here and celebrity watched the whole while. This is the nicest restaurant near the riverwalk area.

We recently had a day off in San Antonio and our bosses decided to treat us to a group dinner. In addition to it being the end of a long work run, it was 5 people's Birthdays within a few days of each other. We had a special private room which was great. We had 2 main servers that stuck... More

Great service never can go wrong with place. The Clams Casino was excellant,Steaks and fries/onion ring combo never disappoint and the Veal Marsala was superb. Went back for lunch had burgers and lunch special which were very good but the lobster/bacon sandwitch disappointed.
