Sooo loud in the bar area but at least everyone was having fun and the service was really good
Our server was excellent and the food was amazing! I loved the vibe it was very energetic and fun!
Initially we were seated near a door to the outside that servers kept opening and closing. It was quite chilly. When we complained, they nicely found us an inside table. We made a meal out of several appetizers, all of which were very good. We even ordered seconds of the shrimp skewers.
I was hungry on a Wednesday night and stopped in to try the restaurant. The food was good quality (a little on the expensive side) and the service was friendly. It was a late Wednesday night so it was rather quite.
Such yummy food for restaurant week, and very vegetarian friendly with their restaurant week options. So I imagine their regular menu is pretty veggie friendly too. It was just a little loud, which is perfect for certain events. And they have an outdoor front part that would probably be less intensely noisy. Again the noise is perfect for going out with friends. It was an awesome spot with great service, and incredible food.
Wouldn't say it is super authentic caribbean food, but it is still good! Especially since Caribbean food is quite scarce in SF.
Service and overall food was amazing. I'm Caribbean and I felt like I was going home. The restaurant has three different sections which makes it even more unique depending on what area you're in.
Sunday Brunch: would return. Pleasant servers, but pace can pick up. We got our food before our drinks arrived. Thanks Palm House staff!
The food was delicious, and our server was very pleasant. Nice location on Union Street, with a larger room in back and a good-sized bar in the middle.
I’ve been here for dinner and brunch. The food is solid but not amazing. The service is good and they have a nice menu and drinks. Will go again for sure.
Fajitas 10/10, perfect for two with an app!
Had a great New Years brunch at Palm House. The manager, Linda is really great and hospitable. Will be back :)
Our party of four loved the food here, which seems to be a fusion of cuisines from all places where the palm tree does grow!
The ambiance needs some work. While the decor is great, with a lot of visual inspiration from the Caribbean, some of us were cold most of the evening. Half the seats were on a plush bench, with cushy pillows, while the other half consisted of cold metal chairs.
Our main complaint was the noise level. The music was blasting the whole night - with some songs repeated - which made conversation difficult at times. You would have thought there was a dance floor in the place and they were trying to spin tunes to keep the crowd pumped up. There wasn't.
Such great service, they were attentive and so friendly, they even immediately brought a water bowl out for my dog. Came out and put leis around us.
The food was delicious too - ordered the Fried Rice Stuffed Pineapple, and it was made well! A bit of a wait, but it was fairly busy and on a Saturday morning.
It’s my second time here. I love the Hawaiian ambience of this restaurant. The outdoor space is as beautiful as the indoor one. Food is good, and service great. I think it’s a happy place both for Sunday brunch and dinner.
Our service was terrible. We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks and 45 minutes for food. The tables around us, including a four top who sat almost 30 minutes later got their food at the same time. Server never addressed it.
The waiter is awesome in figuring out how to incorporate our birthday celebration even though I’d forgotten to mention it to the hostess. Fun place with a lively crowd!
Palm house is great. Good service, consistently solid food, fun drinks, and a fun atmosphere. Perfect spot for a larger group of friends to have dinner and drinks on the weekend.
Super cute and not terribly expensive brunch! The neighborhood is super fun and lively.
Such a great spot to bring friends, family or guests. The food is incredible.
She gave us ducks
Noise was horrific
Dan and Collin were absolutely great hosts. I brought a friend here for a birthday with a group and she had a wonderful time!
A very festive warm place. The staff is wonderful! The service is well done. The drinks are very well presented and good. The food is not impressive but adequate.
We had a great time! We loved our chipotle mango margaritas and appreciated the happy hour price point!
Love this restaurant. The ambiance, food, and service is delicious.
Service & Staff was exceptional & accommodating. Brunch items were unique & tastes with fresh products. String cocktails. Outside brunch dining with pet dog was very comfortable.
Came here on a Saturday night to catch up with a friend. We could barely hear each other even though we were seated away from the bar area. The place was packed with college kids, and the bathroom line (and its cleanliness) was reminiscent of my clubbing days. Food was okay, our server was nice, but I wouldn’t recommend coming here for a chill and quiet dinner. I’d consider coming back but during the day or early dinner.
So amazing! They were so accommodating! 100% recommend for special dinner.
Great food and setting, I think our server was new as she was very slow with everything. She was super sweet but it took her 20 minutes to get 1 latte and then another 20 to close us out. Again, very sweet just new. Over all it was a great brunch with tasty food and great drinks!
The dinner actually started out rather worryingly, but it ended great! We gave our entree-only order to the waitress, and we literally sat for ~40 minutes waiting. The waitress was attentive though, and noticed that we were waiting a long time and gave us complimentary guac and chips. Really sweet. We appreciated this gesture because this literally never happens. Thank you for the consideration.
When the order finally came (60 minute in), however, we received the wrong plate. Service was still wonderful however, and the manager came out himself to apologize for the mishaps and comp us for our dinner. Very friendly, responsive, and the food was AMAZING. Try the Jerk Chicken plate. Its worth it.
The place on a Saturday night is like a fraternity party. If you’re looking to have dinner, go elsewhere.
A "go to" once a week for sure! Been coming here since it was another restaurant and Palm House doesn't disappoint.
Service was truly a mess for lunch service. Not sure if they were short staffed or something, but it was frankly unprofessional
Food was fine. Service was ok. The vibe is a lot of fun.
Great food and overall experience. Service was a bit slow even though it was not busy.
Don't go unless you don't want the be able to hear the person across from you. Food was not good. Interior space is charming but it's ruined by the noise levels and belligerently drunk people at 12pm.
Service the last few times have been extremely slow.
Typically - not a great spot for an evening date. But we made it work:-) great atmosphere for dancing, partying
Nothing really special. More of a place for drinks than food. Food was nothing special at all and for the price... eek.
A lovely day in San Francisco out on the patio
