The renovation of this restaurant took way too long and I was afraid it would not come back. But it was worth the wait. On our last visit we enjoyed excellent mimosas and mai-tai's, and snacked on some lovely bagel chips. We then feasted on a tasty veggie eggs benedict and a well-prepared half-pound burger. The fries were good, too.... More

The quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere of this restaurant were a JOY. I know that's an unusual descriptive for a restaurant, but when you realize the connection of the restaurant to the 45-year history of the Delancey Foundation in helping rehab former substance abusers, ex-convicts, homeless and others who have hit bottom, you'll see why it...

San Francisco friends invited us travellers for lunch at this restaurant. We had read a little about it on its website and were anxious to experience it in person. What a wonderful way to integrate individuals who have had unhappy encounters with the legal system into 'main-stream' society. Even apart from its social worth, however, the restaurant is well worth... More

To start this review, I would just like to say that this place is extraordinarily unique and overall a great place to visit. First of all, the food is delicious beyond belief. I got the baby back ribs and, although they were messy, they were extremely delicious. The prices are also very reasonable. As a dessert I got a root... More

Delancey Street has been a favorite of ours for years now. Especially nice for large groups with varying tastes. The food is always good, though not great, and the decor is nice with a great view of the Bay Bridge; for prices not much more than a dinner at Denny's. Plus, it's for a great cause. You won't be disappointed... More

Delancey Street Restaurant is conveniently located across a Muni train stop. I'm sure others have mentioned the history here and that work and dedication is worthy of one additional star. That said, the food is decent though I suppose I was left wanting more. The food presentation is okay; the fresh fruit bowl could use a makeover. One highlight is... More

Brunch was wonderful - considering I usually don't eat breakfast, Mama's Omelette was all gone before I left. The food is unique - very San Francisco, and it is on the Embracado - so there was a nice ocean view. The story behind Delancey Street in New York - travels to San Francisco - in this very nice, quaint restaurant.

I have been going to Delancy Street Restaurant with my wife, family and visiting friends for many years. I'd think it's been about 15 years or so. I am always impressed by the service, the breadth of their menu, the quality of the food, and the reasonableness of their prices. Thursday night before the Giants' game was no difference. We...

My husband and I have been coming here (usually for dinner after a Giants game) for over 10 years. Never once have we had a bad meal or rude waiter. We have brought friends here who are blown away by the great prices for wonderful food. Yes this is a restaurant run through a "program" to help those that have... More

A down to earth, bistro like restaurant which did not seem all that appealing in the first place. I went there for a business dinner upon recommendation and discovered what this place is all about. The Delancey Foundation gives people who have gone astray a second chance. All workers in the place are former homeless, you would not tell! The... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
