Dining & Events

Palihotel San Diego features Saint James French Diner, a restaurant and bar blending the utilitarian nature of the American diner with the subtle elegance of French bistro cuisine. Offering weekday breakfast and lunch, happy hour and dinner Wednesday to Sunday, and weekend brunch, the menu is hearty and simple, yet refined by nature, paying homage to roadside food halls in Southern France.

It’s shared mussels and a beer, or burgers and martinis. It’s sensible, unpretentious, and totally chic.

Our guest-exclusive roof deck is open Thursday to Sunday from 4pm-7pm, serving light bites, drinks, and the best views of the city.

Warm, charming, and jovial, the hotel and its dining spaces are ideal for intimate soirees, post-convention cocktail hours, private dining, and more.
