I love this place!. I love a good bottomless mimosa brunch and Panam is the perfect place. The food is great, (the French toast was amazing). At first the service was a little slow which I was none too pleased about, but once we got seated our waiter was great and very attentive. When we had finished our meal we were not rushed out or cut off from bottomless mimosas; when the needed our table they simply asked us to move to the bar where we were free to continue drinking for as long as we pleased. Also, because it’s located in the heart of the Castro, it’s surrounded by a ton of places to carry on the party afterwards.
Citysearch Editorial Review. Located in the heart of the Castro, Panam is an energetic, clubby, upscale French restaurant designed for a demographic of about the same description. An atmospheric electronica soundtrack percolates through the two-story floor plan and the cocktail menu is extensive--don't miss the mojitos or the capirinhinas, made with fresh fruit. The decor is somewhat schizophrenic; downstairs, the red 70s-glam faux-suede wall (a holdover from the previous restaurant) looks like it was pulled from Studio 54, while the rest of the restaurant has a modern-Scandinavian edge. The ambitious and eclectic French menu (frogs legs with onion rings, king crab with proscuitto) however, is hit or miss. The plates are small and pricey, but the duck ravioli with porto-raisin jus doesn't disappoint. The clientele is mostly an older, well-to-do set, but the vibe is suitably hip and intimate to make this a nice date spot.
