Absolute travesty. Surly reception staff. Misrepresentation of email invite: said roasted pig and mai tais for $ 45, actually $ 48 for dinner and $ 12 for mai tai. Table service took 15 minutes to start after being seated. I could go on, but it was very sad. There are many excellent restaurants in San Francisco, do not waste your... More

A drink at the bar makes the dinner experience! We had an expertly made Manhattan and bubbly at the festive bar with oysters. We then sat down and had a great kale salad followed by the steak special. The lemon dessert also was delicious. Very festive evening!

My first time at the Presidio Social Club and blown away by the awesomely delicious dinners. The place is clean, spacious, historical, comfortable. I was there for a meeting/dinner. Nice place for it. The staff is friendly. The kale salad was remarkable. Never tasted better. I'll be back!

We go here for lunch on a regular basis and are rarely disappointed. Dinner is another story. On our recent visit with out of town friends we were very frustrated by the slow, inefficient service, "add-on" prices for such things as bacon on the liver and $6 extra for burrata cheese on the tomato salad ($20 for a starter salad!),...

I met up with old friends here, and it was a very relaxing place to catch up. The food was great; everyone's dietary restrictions / wants / desires could easily be accommodated. We never felt rushed; the service was attentive in that Old World way -- unobtrusive, attentive, elegant. It was the perfect place to go. San Francisco can feel... More

There's something magical about today's Presidio of San Francisco, the former military base now managed as a park and historic site in the northwestern part of the city. The Presidio Social Club, located one block inside the Lombard Gate, is in a former military barracks. There's an evocative feel to the building. The outside is classic wood-framed military architecture from... More

This gem of a restaurant is located in the Presidio, a former Army installation in San Francisco, CA. They have a menu which can be described as a mix between "old school" classics and modern urban fare. An example of this dichotomy is the availability of Liver and Onions and a soup that combines the best attributes of "mom's chicken... More

Located in the old Presidio military base, and I think this was one of the original officer's clubs that is now a commercial restaurant. Atmosphere is good as it retained the original décor and architecture of the club, which is rich with old hardwoods throughout. Food is good although a bit heavy on the salt for my personal taste. May... More
