Good food, great beer!

The staff is great, and the menu interesting and diverse. Unfortunately, two days after arriving the restaurant closed for renovations as part of Hilton's lobby renovation effort. They're in temporary quarters, but hopefully soon they'll be back to full operation.

Very cool bar in the Hilton Hotel. Tasty pub food for that late night snack and delicious drinks along with good choices for wine and beer. Good seating for couples and fours.

free for us European Hhonors members (for continental ) so used it everyday, not sure of cost if you have to pay, probably cheaper to go elsewhere.

The food was okay I guess, prices were about average for the area, service was not good. We were seated by the hostess then the waitress came and got our orders. After delivery of our food we never saw her again. I had to actually get up and walk up to the bar to get our check so I could... More

I was staying at the Hilton and decided to have lunch here one day. This is a nice, clean place to eat. I had the turkey burger and fries along with a few drinks. The turkey burger was very tasty and juicy - not overcooked, it was on a nice fresh roll with all the usual extras. I sat at... More

The Urban Tavern is located inside the San Francisco Hilton at Union Square. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's stylish, but casual. The menu features American cuisine, with a nod to local Californian-grown produce - all very fresh and nicely presented. The lunch menu is comprised of several different soups and salads, along with a selection of sandwiches... More

Long line to get into the buffet and the food was very mediocre. Very few items on the not buffet and no cook to order omelet station. Other Hilton hotels have much better restaurants.

I stopped in here late one night after a long day of travel. I ordered a Chinese Chicken Salad to take up to my room. I had to order it at the bar, which is normal. The bartender who took my order was great - he gave me glasses of water, which I really needed after walking around for hours.... More

I met some colleagues here for dinner and was very impressed with the food! I ordered the roasted chicken and I must say it was *the* best roasted chicken I have ever had! A half bird, *very* juicy with the perfect crispy skin. (I was part of a large party so there was quite a bit of tasting other dishes.... More
