Are there any restrictions on placing an electrical panel inside a restroom?

If so, could you please point me to the code section that speaks to that?

When I hear the word restroom I think commercial application.

Residential, nope, nonresidential is allowed to have a panel in it assuming required working clearance can be maintained, but I would not recommend it.
