I enjoyed a dinner with my parents at Zuni Cafe during a family trip to San Francisco. I've had it on my list of must visits for a while and it didn't let us down. The service was great and the chicken...so...good! The gnocchi and...More

We'd heard so much about the Zuni Cafe, we just had to try it. The food was really good - very fresh - and our waitress was over the top friendly. It's certainly unique in menu offerings, decor, and vibe. But it wasn't our favorite...More

It's the best roasted chicken I've had, juicy and tender. My impression of roasted chicken is tasteless and dry but this is not the case here. The chicken meat is so tender, juicy and tasty. Highly recommended.

We had Fathers Day brunch here and simply loved it. ORDER the chicken right went you get there as it takes 1 hour to prepare.... but you'll be amazed as it's something you probably have never had.

As usual, we had a great meal at Zuni's last Sunday with friends. Oysters, seafood, sparkling wine and friends. Oysters are always fresh and the seafood is prepared just right. It can get busy and crowded at night, reservations are definitely required and sometimes, some...More

Farm-to-table seafood to greens; everything at Zuni was shared, savored, and talked about! Halibut or roast chicken? Both!! Long list of wines, cognacs and brandies. Gnocchi, cured anchovies, Monterey Bay squid, olives, cheese and rustic bread, were all loved! The entrees were served promptly. The...More

The chicken is legendary, and you can't go wrong with that choice. Super popular restaurant for the smart set. A little expensive but worth it.

Went here for lunch the other day with pretty high expectations and I would say that we weren't disappointed. Top 100 restaurant in the country? Not sure about that, but very good nonetheless. We had the Caesar salad to start which was really good and...More

Please refer to all other reviews to the chicken as well, but here is mine. We went for a special Boozy girls lunch and we had reservations on a Wednesday at 12:15, it was kind of quite which was really nice, we were seated immediately...More

I will get to the "immigrants" headline momentarily....but first...THE CHICKEN!! Repeat customers know all about this menu item but for those first-timers you have to order the roast chicken for two. Hopefully, you will make reservations as far in advance as Open Table will allow....More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy

Zuni's menu changes every day, so the guarantees are hamburgers and pizza for lunch. But I have eaten many lunches there and those excellent pork chops have always been on the menu. That said, if you are a party of two, one... More
