Beautiful Surroundings

The food was excellent, but the waiter was poor, unfriendly and relatively useless. The décor was beautiful. The service was slow. It took forever to order.

Nice menu of local produce. GF options available. We ordered oysters but they had run out and quickly substituted it with a fantastic tuna tartare and warm corn chips. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

We had breakfast here. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Decided on buffet. Food was less than average. Biggest surprise was the $85 bill for 2 buffet breakfasts. An 15% breakfast surcharge was added in addition to already high SF sales tax.

We stayed at the Fairmont and attempted to eat at Laurel Court after being advised by concierge that they had availability and stood at one entrance (ignored for ages). Tried the other entrance - again ignored. Finally given a table with an unfriendly attitude from the server. No service for 20 minutes (by now starving as we had been traveling... More

Considering the price per night at the fairmont or indeed the price of the main courses the service was poor and the food average. $42 per steak that doesn't include any sides at all.... Will not be back

As an upfront observation - I cannot believe anyone can honestly rate this establishment with 5* stars. Its very strange that review are either outstanding or pretty poor. Anyway - here my review: Christmas day breakfast Mediocre selection, but full Turkey dinner at 9am (hotel advertised turkey lunch from 11am). Was asked to pay a $27 supplement/pp for the turkey...

The iconic Fairmont Hotel at the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, pulls out all the stops at Christmastime. My friend treated me to an early birthday treat of a fancy tea. It was chance to dress up and really feel the holiday spirit. Upon entering the restaurant, you know you are in for something special. Massive marble columns... More

I had four meals in two days at the Laurel Court. It's cozy and the waitstaff is fast and pays attention to detail. I also had the best caesar salad ever (get the crab cake).

Staying in Nob Hill

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.
