A word from Coco Palm
Havana meets Madrid at Coco Palm, the beautiful hilltop restaurant overlooking the San Gabriel Valley. Begin your evening with a Mojito or Sangria in the lounge, and then enjoy dinner while listening to our house music in the elegant restaurant, specializing in traditional Spanish and Cuban cuisine. Don't miss the Paelia Valencia or the House Steak, a 56oz bone-in rib chop for sharing. A variety of fresh seafood is available daily - from lobster and shrimp to fresh salmon in Albarino wine sauce or loin of Sea Bass in a Mango-miso sauce. Afterwards, show your moves in the Coco Room where every Friday we offer free salsa lessons, followed by a live twelve-piece salsa band. On Sundays we offer a spectacular all-you-can-eat Champagne Brunch, and an all-you-can-eat lunch is served daily. Valet Parking is mandatory on most nights, $5/vehicle.

    Excellent variety of food for everyone's palate. Understated neighborhood gem in the hills. The crew is friendly and accommodating. This is my 2nd visit to Coco Palm, unfortunately I found this visit to be very noisy due to a special event that was occurring which made it challenging for me to hear the guests. Other than the noise experienced on our last visit, I love Coco and will return.

    My boyfriend and I dined here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. The food was outstanding. It would be hard to pick just one favorite, but if I must I would say the slow roasted pork. Or maybe the oxtail stew. I just can't pick. The service was exceptional with the wait staff ready to help with anything. Also, to add to the beautiful meal was the outstanding view. This is a great place for couples and a group if you want to enjoy great food and conversation.

    My husband and I made dinner reservations a few days ago for last night(10/28/14) 6:45pm our request also included a window view. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I just want to say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! your staff provided excellent service.....this is why we chose to wait till Tuesday since Coco Palm is closed on Mondays, we wanted to have a special dinner at a special place. We’ve been here before and love buying gift cards to your Restaurant for special people and special occasions because I want everyone to experience good food, good service and good ambience. We especially enjoyed the Guava Cheesecake with “Happy Anniversary” written in Chocolate

    This was the 4th or 5th time we've been back to Coco Palm, and I was very disappointed with the service. The crab legs were salty and so was the paella. The ox-tail continues to be tasty, and not sure if we'll go back again.

    I have been to Coco Palms on several occasions for the Sunday brunch and always enjoyed my experience. The food has been consistently delicious. Buffets always present a challenge in keeping the food fresh, hot, and moist, but Coco Palms does a great job. My boyfriend had never been so I decided to take him for a nice Sunday meal. It was a romantic and enjoyable meal.

    My husband and I were a little skeptical about dinning at the Coco Palm and were even contemplating a "Plan B" should we not like the restaurant right away. As soon as we walked in we loved the atmosphere. The entire staff was incredibly nice and the food was seriously delicious. Not what we expected and we enjoyed our night. Great food and if you can get a window table, great view as well. We plan on returning again soon.

    The view was amazing, the lighting was very romantic but also great for groups. Our server Araceli was very prompt and courteous. The food was as amazing as the views. There were 2 wedding receptions and the nightclub all in full swing that night. However, it didn't take away from my goups experience at all.

    I've been to brunches, where there is a very wide selection of foods, but it was not very good. The Coco Palm brunch, is smaller, more select but the QUALITY is great. Seafood, meats, salad, fruit, and Paella are great. Deserts are also very good. Great mimosas, overall a good experience.

    Our first time. We were looking forward to eating there for so long. I had requested to be seated by the love music, she walked us in and stated there was no window seats but we can sit anywhere. There were 2 open tables by the window "reserved" for people who showed up as we were leaving who seemed to be "regulars"... Less then 10 minutes after we sat down the band took their break and just played a cd while they ate. I would have rather sat in another room and listened to the cd so we could of at least enjoyed the scenery. It was my fiances birthday and I truly wanted something special :( unfortunately it didn't go too well.

    The only review I can give is, "I will not return to this place again". The wait staff was excellent and Manager were courteous, but the chef and kitchen staff need training. The main courses were disappointing and it is obvious the chef does not care enough to watch out for his guests. The steaks we well done when medium rare was the order and the vegetable sides were cold. The clams were salty and not because of the ocean, salt was obviously added.

    This was the second time my wife and I have eaten at the Coco Palms. I took her for her birthday a couple of years ago and she took me there for mine this year. The staff is friendly and very attentive. Our waitress Jessica was fantastic! The food is perfectly cooked and didn't have to wait a week to get served. Highly recommend. A little pricey but well worth it.

    It was our first time to dine at the Coco Palm Restaurant. I made the reservation on line and requested a table by the window. I also indicated that it was my husband's birthday. The restaurant did not forget our request / note. By the time we got to the restaurant, the table (by the window) was ready. A nice music band was playing the whole evening. The food was tasty and the ambience was great. At the end of the dinner, the waiter took out a piece of cheese cake with a lighted candle in it and gave it to my husband. The music band sang a birthday song. We really had a wonderful evening.
