Needed to satisfy/impress some very particular foodies, on a moderate budget, and Per Diem delivered big time. They're still talking to me about it. Great food, great drinks, great ambience, great service. Will be back!

An SF business lunch for a vegetarian, vegan and 2 meat eaters could not have been better. Plenty of dishes for all with extra accents that added a tasty memorable bite to each dish. Especially the cauliflower, brussel sprouts, flat breads, millet and chickpea salad....More

We stopped here for a light lunch during a recent visit. We had a Tri-Tip sandwich, Millet & Chickpea salad, and an Artichoke Flatbread pizza. All were very good, although I thought the salad was a little small for the price. The restaurant has a...More

Just off Market Street in San Francisco, Per Diem offers an expected mid-end dining experience with great food and cocktails within easy reach of bustling Market Street. Very easy to get in and out of and the staff are very attentive and friendly.

We barely stumbled over this restaurant. From the outside it mostly looks like a San Francisco bar - but wauv. The know how to cook. Try some of their starters.

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,
