As others have said this restaurant is located in the Hilton. The menu is pretty basic and I felt the prices for the items were a bit high for what was offered. However the food I had was tasty though one of our group said her salad was right up there on the pepper scale. I liked it though. The... More

Great place to have drinks and appetizers in the front area. If you are in need of a great meal, this will suit you perfectly with out breaking the bank. $30 for a wonderful meal is great in SF. They have a magnificent breakfast buffet. We used Hilton Honors vouchers for this.

Arriving late to my hotel, this option seemed perfect so as not to stray too far. Nestled in the lobby level of the Hilton SF Union Square hotel, it's modern, paired-down decor was extremely minimalist and at first glass, cold. I was seated at a high-top table near the bar and greeted by an extremely enthusiastic and attentive server The... More

This restaurant is located inside the Hilton Union Station Hotel. Usually I am not impressed with hotel restaurants, but this one is exceptional. I had breakfast at this restaurant this morning since I had one of the Hilton certificates for a free breakfast. I decided to order off the menu instead of the buffet. (Although the buffet was exceptional looking.... More

I had drinks here on my trip. I was actually staying at the Hilton and the service was great and it was an interesting looking place. They have an interesting menu of craft beers and all the liquor drinks you would want and a pleasing food menu. The restaurant had a ton of staff running around making sure everyone was... More

Went twice for breakfast. The buffet is overpriced at around 25 bucks for adults. Kids are 6 bucks, which I feel is fair. Lots of food options including breads, fresh squeezed vegetable/fruit juice, pastries, eggs, French toast, potatoes, salad bar, breakfast meats, lunch meats, olives. You can order pancakes and/or omelets. The buffet eggs are soupy but they can make... More

My daughter, Kimi, and I ate here last Wednesday night before a play at ACT and enjoyed our meal very much. If you are seated near the bar, ask to move because it gets really loud. We were seated in a booth well away from the noise and could easily talk at a normal volume. I ordered a delicious "blind... More
