We stayed at the Hilton and got the AAA breakfast package. The buffet has a fantastic selection of fresh foods. From lox, to noodles, fresh fruits and pastries, and lots more. The staff is outstanding. I want to thank Robyn making our breakfast experience outstanding. She was a pleasure to talk to and even gave my kids boxes to save... More

The food is great, but really it's twice the price buffet breakfast should be. $34 /person plus tip. Why do people tip when it's self serve? I don't get it. I've had this same breakfast in Hilton in Florida for half the price.

The food here is great, service quick and friendly though dishes are sometimes a little over complicated with an overburden of different flavors. This is a tiny gripe though - the food here is good and worth a visit. Conveniently attached to the Hilton hotel.

I stopped in for breakfast, given the convenience of being on the ground floor of the Hilton Union Square. The only option on the morning of my visit was the breakfast buffet. And while I will admit that it was one of the most diverse breakfast buffets I have seen, the $34 price (before tax and tip) was shocking. The... More

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
