Whenever I visit downtown San Francisco, I automatically think of this awesome restaurant / tavern for meeting colleagues. Great service, great atmosphere, and a large menu with reasonably priced selections.

I stayed over a long weekend at the Hilton Union Square, and I must say the breakfast here is well worth the extra money! Namir is an excellent host, and welcomed me every day! Make sure you check it out!

Staying at Hilton Union Square this is your breakfast room - good food with wide selection of hot and cold foods fresh ginger but the worst coffee! Americans love their dirty dishwater style of coffee - its a shame they don't instal la self-service espresso machine for the majority of the world who like their coffee a little less amero-style

Whilst stating at the Hilton Union Square, my wife and I had breakfast here three times. We chose the Continental breakfast which set us up for a day's sightseeing. For $27 each plus taxes we could eat and drink as much as we liked from the buffet. Porridge, smoked salmon, fresh fruit, marmalade and toast, orange juice and coffee were... More

We stayed at the hotel and had breakfast here. The restaurant has a "continental buffet" and a "full buffet". The full buffet is $34 per person ($7 more expensive than the continental buffet) and is definitely worth the extra cost. There is a wide variety of fruits, pastries, cereals and traditional hot / cold breakfast items (eggs, meat, etc). There... More

Yes the price is WAY to high but since we were part of a pre-paid tour breakfast was included. The choices and quality reminded us of the unbelievable breakfasts we had in Iceland. Kelly, I think, was our waitress and was so helpful.

At $34 each plust multiple taxes, this was an incredibly expensive breakfast buffet for 2. We left $94.00 poorer. Walk down the street for a really great breakfast at Lori's Diner or Cafe Mason.

A wonderful array of food choices to cover every single dietary or cultural need. They only offer the breakfast buffet. Hot is $37.00 continental, the cold choices, $27.00. Thats it!.

This place is ridiculous, $34 for hot breakfast buffet and $27 for continental breakfast. If i didn't get breakfast included with my diamond membership I'd run. Tha food was mediocre, the atmosphere was rushed. Not a fan at all.
