Really enjoyed this place. My wife and kids had already been but I was a first timer. Fries, fajitas, burgers, etc were all great. Cocktails were excellent as well. We had very attentive service. They hit the Caribbean vibe they advertise but without over doing it. Will go back.
Such a vibey spot with really good food and even better drinks.
Waiters were phenomenal. Table that was chosen for us was okay. You got 3 big people occupying a small table but it’s okay. Drinks were really good balance of alcohol and sweetness. Food was great. Definitely would recommend to come again.
Catching up with friends
We got our food so quick after ordering and it was so good. Such a cute place too!
The food & drinks were great. They had indoor & outdoor dining with outdoor heaters but still cold feel a bit cold. The music playlist they had was awesome.
Service was great. My shrimp and polenta was a little too saucy and salty . And where we were sat inside was the dingiest part of the restaurant. Also, the music was way too loud and it was all 80s music vs Caribbean .
We celebrated a birthday by having lunch at Palm House. Our meal was at 1pm and we sat outside. There was some daytime construction noise at first but then it quieted. We had the SF Restaurant Week menu which was delicious, especially the rum cake for dessert.
The staff was very friendly and attentive.
Great ambiance! Refreshing cocktails and delicious dishes.
Super fun + cute. Definitely get the sweet potato fries!
Great outdoor dining just be sure to make a reservation in advance.
The outdoors experience was great! The happy hour menu and drink specials were fabulous. Such a great place to go!
Really delicious food and great service. I arrived when it was sunny out at the end of the day and it was so nice ambiance-wise. I highly recommend the avocado Katsu, but need to try basically every dish. Since what I had drink and appetizer and food wise was awesome.
The tropical influenced menu and vibe here is very fun. They have a great brunch menu and some delish cocktails.
Good overall - needed some outdoor heaters
Great cocktails and happy hour cocktails menu. For us, the food was lacking any WOW factor. Our table ordered off the happy hour and regular menu lots of food. Such as the poke tostadas, coconut shrimp, Mahi-mahi, cauliflower chorizo tacos, and the surf and turf fajitas. We only ate our appetizers and nibbled on the main courses to eventually pack them up to try and recycle them up to be edible at home.
Nothing was particularly stellar. Service was a bit lackluster as our appetizers arrived at our table and we had no silverware, plates, water, or hand sanitizer.
Hostess booth is wide open missing the plexiglass barrier.
The only reason for us to come back would be to eat/drink from the happy hour menu.
Great Vegan options at brunch and dinner. Staff was very helpful and nice.
The scene at Palm House couldn’t have been better. Beautiful day, lovely seating, tasty meal. It was tough to pick from such an extensive menu of choices. Everything we had was delicious. Highly recommend!
Food was very bland. Looks great in pictures, but fails the taste test.
Great location and drinks. Service felt a bit rushed as they cleared off the table without asking if we were done, same with clearing the drinks that we had not finished. Rushed to give us the bill but didn't come back to take it for over 25 minutes.
Had a great Sunday brunch here. Highly recommend the Palmonde for a light refreshing drink and the pineapple fried rice was huge but great my friends and I loved it! Would definitely go back in a heart beat!
Great cocktails, unique and fresh food, super friendly staff.
CNt wait to go back!!
Good outdoor eating area! Great food! Good service!
I’ve been wanting to go to this restaurant for a long time, finally booked a reservation on Valentine’s! We ate a little earlier than I normally like to (5:30 was the last and only reservation available that day) but it turned out perfect actually. We had time for appetizers and drinks, by the time we ate it was around 6:30.
One thing to note is there are no heat lamps—well there is on the patio but not the extended seating towards the street (where we sat). It was fine though. The booths are pretty well insulated, and they were covered so we didn’t get rained on. My boyfriend and I started dating 2 months before covid hit, so we really didn’t have much of a chance to “date”. It was so nice to go out to dinner together!
I wasn’t sold on the menu at first, but once I tried it I was pleasantly surprised. Delicious combos, creative and festive dishes/drinks. Fun atmosphere, sang along to the music with folks from other tables. It felt almost like normal again. Loved the food, coconut Brussel sprouts were DIVINE, they even honored my dietary restrictions and took out the jalapeño’s—which was thoughtful of them.
The main dish I ordered was the tofu, and it was delicious. One thing is the dishes were pricey for the amount of food they gave, my boyfriend ordered the mahi magi, but it wasn’t enough food, so definitely add coconut rice if you want to leave feeling “full”.
The service staff was very friendly and sweet, service was good overall. Loved the bathrooms (mermaids/pirates) cute nautical theme inside. Will definitely be back again soon! They have punch bowls for larger groups, want to try that next time.
Everything was great. Great service, great food and location. Very friendly and polite waitress and hostess. Cool menu and drinks....But I was freezing, you guys need a heating lamp:)
Great outdoor ambience and cocktails. Felt like we were on a tropical vacation!
well it was great to eat out again, and kudos to Palm House for being quick to reopen and organized with their reservations. Food / value / service were all fine but not more than fine, although in fairness you do lose a fair amount of the ambience when you're eating on the sidewalk
they charged extra for tofu in a salad where we took away the chicken. Like we had to pay for both tofu AND chicken, that we didn't even get. Keep in mind that we only took the salad bc the other vegan options were out.
Brunch before our Xmas tree shopping at the Guardsmen Ft Mason Tree Lot
Palm House is such a fun spot for a date or a get together with friends! They have build the cutest outdoor eating area that extends the fun tiki-like decor complete with hanging plants and bamboo. The shrimp was super tasty, and better than expected and the service staff was really sweet and accommodating. We'll be back!
Nice outdoor seating area with great food and good service. Will absolutely go again.
Was nervous to go out to eat for the first time since SIP but the Palm House is only offering outdoor seating, wait staff are all wearing masks, and tables seemed spaced apart nicely. Besides the safety, the food and drinks were amazing, environment was quiet even while seated partially on sidewalk, and staff were all very friendly and helpful! Recommend having a phone on you as this is how you have to view the menu now.
Brunch for Father’s Day was perfect and my husbands first sit down outdoor restaurant meal since SIP began in our area.
Thank you for delicious food, great service and what appeared to be a well thought out sanitized outdoor eating experience during this time of transition .
Incredible Staff and Amazing Food In a Beautiful Location
I made a reservation for two but had last minute change and they were flexible enough to make it work for three. Food is interesting and drink is great!
Sooo loud in the bar area but at least everyone was having fun and the service was really good
