This restaurant was so disappointing. The restaurant itself is decorated really nice and I would possibly go back to have an overpriced drink once and a while. My husband started off with a ceaser salad that he really enjoyed so it looked like things were good. We both ordered the steak as we heard that Tyler Florence was known for... More

When researching San Fran before our trip we discovered Tyler Florence had a restaurant there. After reading the reviews and menu we decided to give it a try. We got to the restaurant about 45 min. early and fully expected to sit at the bar and wait for our table. The hostess mentioned that we could sit at the "chef"... More

We discovered Wayfare Tavern right after they opened. Knowing Tyler Florence was from my home state, we had to try it. It was incredible then; it is incredible now. We had the Seared Octopus w/cippolini onion and the Pan Seared Salmon w/ braised Swiss chard, cannelloni beans and capers today! Both were full of flavor and simply delicious! My goal... More

We were in the Bay area over the weekend and decided to try someplace new for dinner and we were very pleased! The service was very good, friendly and personable. Comfortable vibe, nice blend of swank yet vintage. The mac & cheese IS a must have. We'll be back. We had reservations and would recommend for groups over 2 pp.... More

When in San Francisco one has to try Tyler Florence's Wayfair Tavern. The service was fast, friendly and very enjoyable. The food was excellent. We sat next to the kitchen, so we had a full view of meal preparation. While we waited, we feasted on hot Wayfair Tavern Popovers, which were exceptional. The meal arrived prompt, hot and delicious. We... More

Had dinner here twice in the past three weeks after not being in since last Christmas. Food was excellent - especially the mac and cheese. Salmon was perfectly cooked, friends raved about the octopus appetizer and we all shared the deviled eggs to start. Le Grand Burger, scallops, fried chicken and pork shank were winners and repeated. They are busy,... More

We really enjoyed the food, but were unfortunately really rushed through our meal... big shame as it would otherwise have been a great evening.

The menu here is more straightfoward than other popular restaurants. There is a downstairs and upstairs and a small bar area. Everyone is very friendly and let them know if you are planning on sharing as they will cut everything into two and divide it up. The wagyu beef tartar comes with very good sauces and a popover that is... More

I recently came back from San Francisco and was referred to this restaurant for a late night bite and drinks. We had the fried chicken which I have to say was delicious, albeit a bit on the salty side. Make sure to call in for reservations or you will be left waiting, the hostess was super friendly and accommodating. This... More

The drinks were fine, and we were seated promptly. We started with traditional Deviled eggs, which were not creative or exciting. Dinner was salmon, pork and the fried chicken with a side of fries. This is where the evening took a lower quality dip. The small piece of dry salmon was boring, the chicken good, and at the end of... More
