Caribbean, Californian, Hawaiian


Maximum Capacity: 240

Housed in the original 1854 farm house where Cow Hollow derives its name behind the second oldest palm tree in San Francisco, Palm House evokes a bygone era combining Caribbean colors, lush vegetation and colonial refinement in a completely unique setting. Enjoy an innovative menu of tropical comfort food influenced by the diverse cuisines of Cuba, Brazil, Indonesia, Hawaii, and the Caribbean from nationally acclaimed chef Gayle Pirie (also from Foreign Cinema). Sip on tropical concoctions from our full bar highlighted by custom made “slushies” featuring exotic fruits that change with the seasons. Catch up with friends over al fresco brunch on our front patio “street side” as Union Street passes by, grab a drink and some snacks in our festive main bar atrium while you watch your favorite team on the big screen, or get a little more intimate with dinner in our dining area featuring a private Captain’s Room for up to twelve guests.

Private Dining Options

Captains Room

0 Standing | 12 Seated

Combining both privacy and luxury, the Captain’s Room features a mahogany table, leather seats and tropical-themed artwork that will transport you to a wonderful place far from the hustle and bustle of Union Street. French double doors and a see through cigar case ensure both privacy and limited visibility to the dining room beyond, perfect for an intimate and upscale gathering.

Cabana Room

60 Standing | 30 Seated

Past the bar and adjacent to our open kitchen, the Dining Room offers larger groups a place to dine or mingle in a semi-private setting. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smell of tropical cuisine prepared while you celebrate a special occasion or host a meeting. A wall of mahogany shutters provides privacy from the bar area.

Communal Table

Located within the bar area, our Communal Table is a festive option for groups interested in gathering for shared dishes and punch bowls where noise and great cheer are preferred. Seating is bar height with comfortable high backed chairs.

Adjacent to the front patio, our Solarium offers medium-sized groups a bright and airy atmosphere as well as semi-privacy for either seated dinners or small cocktail parties. Enjoy views of our 150 year old palm tree as well as the patio and bar area.
