Stop looking. This is your wedding venue.
I wish I had the words to adequately describe our experience with The Palm Boston. From the moment we "popped in" to the bar with the intent to check it out as a wedding venue to the end of our reception our experience was nothing short of fantastic. The physical venue itself is stunning. Soaring marble columns, a glass terrace overlooking the Greenway, and floor to ceiling windows throughout. It's location in the Financial District means you can easily access the Waterfront and Post Office Park for photos. We knew immediately that we wanted to have our reception here but were concerned about where we would have our ceremony. The Palm staff took care of that and transformed their dining room into a beautiful ceremony space for us. The glass terrace served as a space for cocktail hour and then dancing to the backdrop of city lights. The whole space is so elegant. Beyond the space, the food is phenomenal. We are big foodies and knew that we didn't want "wedding food." In fact it was the one thing we cared about the most. The passed appetizers were delicious. One touch I appreciated was that after cocktail hour the remaining cheese display was moved to the terrace which allowed our guests to munch on it throughout the night. I thought this was a thoughtful touch. For dinner, our guests were treated to filets cooked to their liking, enormous servings of chicken parm, salmon, and butternut squash ravioli. The chowder was a fun surprise for our guests instead of traditional salad and the chocolate cake was out of this world. Skip the wedding cake, go with The Palm's chocolate cake.
The thing that really sets this venue apart from all others is the staff. Everyone from our vendors to our guests commented on how nice and professional the staff were. Paulina is amazing. From start to finish she provided ideas and details and checked in with us. The night of our wedding she was there from beginning to end making sure everything ran smoothly. I will genuinely miss working with her and would not hesitate to host events in the future. After our ceremony Paulina brought champagne and pitchers or water to a room they had for bridal party use in the back. We were able to access the room all night which was great when I needed to fix my bustle or just take a moment away. All of these little details added up in big ways.
Every time we visited The Palm leading up to our wedding we were treated like VIPs. They say that they treat their customers like family and this is so true.
As we were eating dinner in the mezzanine gazing out at all of our guests, my husband looked at me and said "this is the best wedding I've been to, and it's ours." I think that says it all.
I have been in over 10 weddings, I have seen it all. Our experience with The Palm Boston was so unique. I felt confident from day one that we were in good hands and they executed a perfect day for us.
If you are looking to get married in the heart of the city and want exceptional food, a gorgeous venue, and unparalleled service, check out The Palm. You will not be disappointed. I could go on and on, but go and see it for yourself. Stop looking, you have found your venue.Sent on 10/09/2019

Amazing value, excellent ambience, organization and food!
My husband and I had our wedding dinner here in Aug 2019, and HIGHLY recommend Paulina and her team at The Palm!
From the beginning, they were flexible and attentive to what we needed. Great food was a must-have at our wedding dinner, and so although most places do a complimentary tasting only after you make a commitment to the place, Paulina asked us the first night we showed up to meet her to stay for dinner and check out the food. She then arranged with the chef that night (who had zero advance warning) to give us a slew of different meals to sample their culinary offerings. I even remember our server that evening - Michelle - who was warm, funny and very Bostonian. She made sure we had everything we needed, and is probably in the top 3% of servers I've had. They then sent us home with boxes of food that lasted the next week!!
Given the spectacular experience we had, the convenience factor of being in downtown Boston steps from the T, the extreeeeemely reasonable pricing they had, and the fact that the existing ambience and decor hardly needs enhancing, we committed to The Palm.
And THEN we saw what everyone else had been talking about in the months after that. Paulina was on top of things, constantly sending emails to check in while never stressing us out. She was flexible with the menus - when we couldn't choose 1 of 3 dessert options, she let us plate 2 of the 3 desserts instead. She was cool with last minute changes to the guest list, happily advised us on seating arrangements, and worked with our DJ to scope out the space. I have to emphasize that throughout this process, Paulina was ever cheerful and accomodating, truly a wonderful professional to work with.
The day of, everything went smoothly! We loved how our ~150 guests could chill outside in the glass terrace for drinks, then transition to the main dining room for dinner, speeches and dance. The two side rooms were used for (i) nursing babies and (ii) for the kids to watch a movie so their parents could just focus on dinner and conversation. And then of course the partying, fun and games in the glass terrace the rest of the night in the glass terrace was transitioned seamlessly into...
I can't recommend The Palm any more highly!!!Sent on 10/21/2019

Like most type-A personalities, I had an agenda and a vision for my event. Admittedly, I can be a little bossy and stubborn when it comes to something personal like designing and executing a dinner for a large group (and most importantly, close friends and family!). Paulina not only over-delivered on all elements to the process, she put up with my demands, recommended optimizations and diffused my late night panic. I could not have asked for a more considerate, thorough and professional partner in this process. Paulina comes highly recommended by myself and all party attendees.Sent on 08/29/2018
Paulina is a wonderful event coordinator, she is organized, smart, and kind and has great taste! I would absolutely suggest having Paulina coordinate your wedding at the Palm. Highly recommended for all events in Boston!
