Unfortunately I found the food to be very average. I love herbs but they should be used to complement not to overwhelm the food. Even the use of herbs in the cocktails was too much. Maybe the kitchen was having an off night when we...More

Highly recommend this place for dinner. We were a party of 4 and shared everything. The fried chicken was great, but they had an amazing bone in ribeye as the special. Also, good appetizers, amazing popovers, great dessert, and awesome cocktails.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Wayfare Tavern. We mentioned we had tickets to a show and had great service. We had the chicken, a filet mignon and the sole - each meal was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
