On a recent business trip to San Francisco, I stayed in the Hilton downtown, and tried the attached restaurant Urban Tavern one night for a bite to eat and drinks. The space appears to be a very popular one--the bar area in particular was almost always busy in the evening from happy hour on through the night. That makes for... More

Amazing food, best we have had so far on this trip! Great wine list and helpful staff. Add to your 'must do in San Fran' dinner list.

The breakfast buffet is quite expensive. Unfortunately, the selection does not match the excessive price. If you are into Asian food, there is a section of Asian selections at one end of the buffet. You can order omelets, but good luck getting a server to take your order.

If craft beer is your thing (and it most certainly is mine) you'll love this place. It gets very busy and noisy but the service is fast efficient. Pliny The Elder is terrific brew - try it!

We had the continental breakfast included with our Hilton Honours membership level - a varied cold buffet with a wide selection of pastries and bread/bagels and wee glasses of carrot, blueberry smoothie and mango juice. The voucher also entitled us to breakfast in Starbucks in the... More

We stopped here for a drink after work since we were staying in the hotel. A good atmosphere, but nothing special.

The best meal I had was a roast chicken dinner. Several other dinners were disappointing. Stick with simple and a I guess it is ok but why bother ... for $30 they should be able to roast some chicken!!!

Had a great meal here and a couple of cocktails. Seriously really good food and drinks and the staff and customers were all having a great time which added the the already cool atmosphere. Loved the pickled green beans

Ate here one night and was very impressed with the food and service. Staff very nice and helpful, was able to get exactly what I wanted with no fuss. I did request a bit of a change to a menu item and it was no fuss service - definitely can do.
