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

A good steakhouse that serves consistent food, no surprises and quality steaks. Did personalize a non-beef eater with what she requested.

I had the opportunity to have lunch at this fantastic restaurant where the experience was so good, I cam back with more people for dinner later in the week. Our server (Amy from upstate New York), was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Her suggestions were followed and the group was not disappointed. This is definitely a more upscale location, and not... More

I have eaten at many Palm restaurants and have never been let down. The surf and turf is to die for. The SA version of the Palm needs a little better wait staff, as there were times I was left alone with an empty glass of water or beverage without someone asking me for another. I dropped my silverware, and... More

The restaurant is decorated with caricatures of famous people - from San Antonio and from the world. The food was scrumptious and the service was attentive. We shared a fried calamari appetizer (good and huge). I had filet mignon and my husband had a ribeye. We shared creamed spinach and goat cheese whipped potatoes. The food was so good and... More
