Coco Palm had great ambiance and even better food. Looking out at the whole fair grounds area with excellent Cuban cuisine. The portions are large and flavorful with great seasoning. The service was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Definitely a place I will be back to when in the area.

Came here to celebrate 2 of my friends birthday. Requested to be seated by the window with a view but didn't get that. Was expecting a birthday desert but didn't get that as well. We left not feeling like we were celebrating 2 birthdays.

Yes and no
The only reason is that the waiter wasn’t trained the right way. He was keep tell me that there was a charge for everything. I was not expecting anything for free.

My wife & I went to Coco Palms to celebrate our 31st Anniversary. Abraham, our waiter and bartender provided exceptional service. Guava Margarita was spectacular, Masa Frita de Puerco with Moros and platano maduros was delicious. My wife had Rabo Encendido with Moros and fried green plantains with salt, what a treat. that was to die for. They simply have great service, delicious drinks, and spectacular comforting Traditional Cuban Food.
We will be back soon.
Thank you so very much,
The Bueno’s

Sat in a corner table in front of entrance horrible placement. The restaurant was empty. Yet we were sat in that location along side a few other costumers. The crowd and workers were a bit loud and wasn’t able to truly take in the partial view or enjoy my date. But the food was good.

Enjoyed our dinner, as usual. Only downfall is that we always have to wait to be seated even though we always have a reservation. It would be greatly appreciated to be seated as soon as we arrive. That is why we make a reservation. Other than that, the food is amazing and the staff is always pleasant.

Really nice restaurant, ambience is great. I took my wife out for a date hoping to have dinner and dancing with the live salsa band advertised on the website but unfortunately a wedding party booked the venue. I may have missed it but I didn't see any events on the website so that was disappointing. Dinner was fine, however I think our server was inexperienced and it made for some frustrating moments.

my girlfriend and i went out on a date at coco palms, we pick the restaurant because of the location up on the hill,we got a window table and were not disapointed. we went on a saturday and the buffett menu was very good,quiet and romantic for couples. we'll be going back to a dinner time to enjoy an illuminated view of the freeway and neighborhood.

great location and view. however when we selected from menu several items were not available despite the restaurant being almost empty. Server forgot several items and had to be reminded. Had to ask for lemons for sparkling water 3 times and was offered Pelligrino but the full bottle never appeared at table rather a glass. Server was far to full of himself and jokey. Barman was unsure of wines he had or about type of Savignon Blanc he was serving. Food we did eventually order was ok but not outstanding in anyway. Would recommend and go again for the view.

The ambiance was great. Loved the view. The Mar y Tierra (Steak and Lobster) were very good. The Parillada de Mariscos was too "fishy", the shrimp in it were small and over cooked. I ate the lobster, which was good. I will not be ordering that specific dish again. I am willing to go and try other dishes.

They used to have exotic birds in this huge cage outside which is an empty cage now. There are so many spider webs outside in the patio, you can tell they don't maintain it anymore. There is a a paper on the door as well as the website states that Dress Code is Enforced which they definitely don't. They should Enforce it specially since they have weddings there a lot. This guy went in with shorts and a tank top on Saturday and was let in. This is not the first time I have seen this, if you want better clientele then you should enforce the dress code. This is a beautiful restaurant where I proposed to my wife and would hate it if it goes down. The service this visit was really slow. The lady was super nice but super slow. The food was delicious like always.

Our waiter was decent no complaints there. However all of our food was over cooked. There was no one hardly in the restaurant yet they sat 3 table all right next to one another. The guy that delivered our food threw my salad in front of me I had to pretty much keep it from falling off the table. Someone recommended us to the restaurant and I don’t understand why. We will not be going back to pay 57 dollars for a over cooked rubbery lobster.

Upon arrival didn’t know what to expect being my first time eating Cuban food, this was a special occasion for me and my husband , our 47th wedding anniversary so I wanted it to be special. After looking at the menu and making a decision it was the best choice I ever made, The food was excellent and service great not to mention the fantastic view...

Definitely recommend this place. Only thing that disappointed me was the unlimited mimosas. Charging 5 dollars for every refill it’s a little to much. I know that the champagne used is a low end one, so the 5 dollar charge per refill is kind of a rip off. But overall everything is great

My childhood restaurant... Being Cuban and celebrating all of our abuela birthdays here, is very memorable. Customer service and cleanliness is always on point. Wouldn’t choose another place to go..
