“Charming restaurant in San Rafael”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Excellent food in a charming atmosphere. Even on very busy nights the service is superb. The hotel is a great place for out of town friends, too!

“Great Brunch”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I've had brunch here a number of times and have never been disappointed. They have delicious homemade scones and some dishes I haven't seen on other brunch menus. It is fairly priced and the service and ambiance are very good.

“Nice place to eat.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Panama Hotel has nice outdoor seating and is shaded by umbrellas. You can also sit in the sun. The food is very good, especially the vegetarian enchiladas. Good salads, burgers, and a nice Sunday Brunch. Service at times can be slow, just let them know if you are on a time limit.
If you are in the San Rafael area, check it out, I believe you will be happy.

“Panama Hotel - Gem in the Gerstle Park Area”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The Panama Hotel is a gem in San Rafael. Fun place to stay and a great place to dine.
Lunches and dinners here in the quaint hotel are wonderful.
It is located in an historic building (was Maria's Pueblo way back when) and is a fun place to meet friends for a meal or a drink at the bar.
There is also music some weeknights with local musicians (check the website).
