The service was terrible. Coud not get drinks served. It appeared the staff was unhappy. Food pretty good when you got it.

All I can say is wow. After hitting a bunch of SF top restaurants this was right up there, loved A16 too. Went for lunch. Best burger and Caesar going. Pizza crazy good. Spectacular space too. And perfect service!

Oh Zuni café, how I will ever be able to forget that delicious chicken that I had? Crazy long waits, make reservations, it is worth it!! The service makes a lady feel like, well a lady. The food we ordered was the Roasted chicken for two, which is more than enough for two people. It comes roasted to perfection, cut... More

I am sad to report that Zuni is not what it used to be. Hopefully, it's just a one time aberration and it will return to its formal glory immediately. Our expectations were high, as we have enjoyed Zuni for many, many years both pre-performance and with almost every out of town guest we've ever hosted. The wonderful bar was... More

I went to this place with my wife for dinner. We had roasted rabbit, which was good. The mission figs Tart, however, was the best part of the meal. The wine list is broad and offers very good options. The service is friendly and the place, cozy. I would come back.

This trendy cafe-style restaurant is most famous for its chicken, and the rep is deserved. It's moist, full of flavor and has a delicious bread stuffing. It does pay to order as soon as you arrive so other diners in your group won't be inconvenienced, as it truly does take an hour. Everything else we tasted was equally delicious--two of... More

This place is located aside from the city-center in a kind of glass corner building and the interior is very simple but nice. Our friend recommended us to take their chicken but mentioned that it usually takes an hour to prepare it. We took it into consideration and expressed our desire for the chicken as soon as we came in.... More

We came for the burger at 8:30 and waiter took our order. He said he could get the kitchen to make it. Normally it isn't served until after 10. He lied. We were already tired from a long work day. At about 9:30 my wife put her head down on table. No food, no energy. They must have thought she... More

It's been a few years since we visited San Francisco, but a dinner at Zuni Cafe is always part of the trip. The restaurant appears to have expanded since we were last here, and on a particularly warm September evening we were seated in a second-floor alcove with only four tables, an area lacking both in ventilation and in the...
