Over the decades, the Garden Court remains a premier experience. It’s one of the most beautiful venues I know. Cuisine has always had a continental flair, even in modern times when dress code has become informal. This is a spot to reserve extra time for,...More

We have always loved the Garden Court, in the historic and lovely Palace Hotel. In July, we stayed there again, and as we had breakfasts, and a dining allowance on-property, we were back at the beautiful Garden Court. Our dining allowance was through the AMEX...More

We had a very strange experience here at the Garden Court at the Palace Hotel. First of all, they market this place as a restaurant “great for brunch or tea”, but we didn’t see a brunch menu. We were there at 12 and had to...More

I go the the garden court for breakfast every year when I come to San Francisco for a conference. The atmosphere is spectacular. The service excellent as is the food . Had eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, sausage and bacon. Highly recommend.

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!

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

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
