This historic space features a sweeping glass towering ceiling, marble, bronze and chandeliers. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast buffet at this magnificent location. There were plenty of options for all dietary needs and it was the highlight of our stay at the hotel.

Exceptional experience! Visited the Garden Court for Brunch. The interior and the decor is breath taking! The service is fantastic and the brunch Buffett was incredible! A must visit! You won’t be disappointed! The brunch was $40 USD per person which was defiantly worth it!

Dining here is exceptional. Attentive service, clean, and with good selections. Never a disappointment. Early Brunch, Lunch, High Tea, and/or Dinner, it's always a good experience!

The space is lovely, the reason for the three stars is their closing time for dinner. We gave it another shot for Sunday brunch which was very good, the variety of the buffet was great. Prices were a tad high, but we still enjoyed ourselves...More

We, a party of 6 with two birthday girls, decided to celebrate at the Garden Court in the Palace Hotel. The space is perfect. At mid-day the stunningly beautiful glass ceiling filters the light into the spacious room making it bright and inviting. We were...More

Gone is the $50 brunch and now the GC offers an ala carte menu. "Fresh OJ" pours all breakfast/brunch long but it's from a carton. Food is great and service excellent. Get a reservation on weekends otherwise you will not get a table

This is a classic spot in SF and a must if you are in the area! The Crab Salad is amazing and the ambiance can't be beat. Great service and a beautiful place to relax and enjoy!

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
