Good but expensive

I had the PCH omelette. It was very good and sizable. On the flip, it was $23. However, if you are going to patronize the Fairmont, you can't be surprised about the prices.

My wife and I had dinner here last night (2/16/15) for a belated valentines day. I had expected that being the Fairmont Hotel with it's reputation that the restaurant would be first class, regrettably it was not. The room that the restaurant is located in is right off of the hotel lobby and is quite large. It is divided 50/50... More

We have had lunch here on several occasions. The host is about as unfriendly as he can be. He acts like we are doing him a favor to eat here. I ordered French onion soup and a salad on one occasion. The salad was average and the broth was rather tasteless. On another occasion, my fish tacos were exceptional but... More

I stayed here in the past with my husband so when I was in San Francisco for a work trip I had to venture across the street for one of the best hotel brunch buffets I've had. The chowder also hits the spot on damp breezy days.

Laurel Court restaurant is a typical "corporate hotel bar and restaurant" serving very good food from the buffet or the menu a la carte. Drinks and snacks are served in sociable surroundings from the bar, both being some what expensive. But then if you want a place to relax in sumptuous surroundings and in a historic hotel after that corporate... More

$5 charge for H2O. Gimme a break. My son and I both had the Prix Fixe menu and nothing was memorable. Son had a steak and I had fish. I do remember it just didn't stand out .In fact everything was just bleh.

We stayed at the Fairmont over the week of Thanksgiving. We were looking very forward to Thanksgiving dinner here and though the food was good, the service was not. We were greeted by a host who was leaning on furniture and less than enthusiastic to see us (it was the very beginning of dinner service), we were led to mediocre... More

My wife and I loved dining at the Laurel Court. The food was outstanding, the service was amazing. I have gluten issues and the restaurant offers gluten free options including pancakes and waffles. I was in heaven and so was my wife who doesn't worry about eating gluten free.

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
