We had breakfast here 2 mornings on our most recent trip. The buffet is horrible - had it the first day & didn't repeat the mistake the second morning. The food ordered directly from the menu the 2nd day was okay, but not memorable. The decor isn't "historic" the way the rest of the hotel is - it's more "tired"... More

We had the breakfast buffet one morning and had dinner another night. Both were excellent. My wife had an excellent pasta and had a very nice broiled fish plate. It's relatively expensive, consistent with its location in the heart of San Francisco.

I had dinner here at an overstay in the hotel. Nothing wrong, nothing really, really right. We enjoyed our meal, but trust me - you don't have to eat here. There are plenty of alternatives in the nearest neighbourhood.

Loved the fresh fruit; disliked the lukewarm oatmeal and warm yogurt. Wonderful fresh fruit juices. Slightly too much attention from the waiters - I'd be asked 3 or 4 times if I wanted juice/coffee and it got to be a bit much.

$29 for a (good) breakfast buffet. Don't get me wrong, it's a good breakfast buffet. You have your usual assortment potatoes, scrambled eggs, sausages, and bacon. It's a bit disappointing that there wasn't a better hot food selection, e.g. pancakes, waffles, perhaps an international breakfast item, etc. The fruit selection was probably the best thing about the breakfast - watermelon,...

I ate here by myself one night in September. I arrived when it opened, and there only a couple tables being used for about the next hour, so service was very attentive, as was the maitre'd/host. My appetizer, entree, and dessert were all outstanding (although I forget what I had!). The dining room was very attractive, and the ambience/atmosphere very... More

The touristy craze of union square drove us to try this restaurant in the Westin SF. The place is large with no windows, but the service is impeccable. We arrived 20 min to closing and they seated is and served us without rushing us or making us feel uncomfortable. The food was fantastic and seating was very comfortable. The meal... More

This is the restaurant where breakfast is served - but that's where the similarity with other hotels ends - the quality, service, interest in you as a guest and traveler, decor, quietness, all add to this being a very unique place to dine.

The Oak Room (and they name it that for a reason) offers excellent buffet breakfasts; mine was included in the price of the hotel room. The service was great, but all the wood and no windows made it a little too dark.
