Garden Court, San Francisco, CA

Garden Court Restaurant Review

: There's no prettier room in San Francisco than this one off the lobby of the Palace Hotel. Beneath a spectacular glass roof, a sea of elegant tables, chairs and willowy palms is arranged over a richly patterned carpet. The optimum time to visit is for afternoon tea, for its aristocratic aura and attentive service. Sunday brunch is also a good experience. For lunch, the signature salad with Dungeness crab is a favorite.
