My wife & I stopped by Union Larder because we heard that it was a wine bar. It is a wine bar, but is much more. With a large wine list, choosing a wine can be a challenge. The servers are very helpful & so...friendly. No rush, no attitude. We felt very comfortable & it was such a good time. We made our choices based on the recommendations & help of our server, which was great. The wine we had was very good. We also ordered a 3 cheese plate, which was also so good. Served with bread and jams that matched well with each cheese. The wine was really good, but the cheese was really special. We almost started licking the cheese plate because it was that good. I have no issues with coming back. Next time, I may try the beers that they serve. The menu of beers looked really awesome. We will be back.More

My dad and I stopped into this place after a long day walking around San Francisco-- the warmth of the space immediately hit us when we walked in. Cozy with dim lights, this is a perfect weekend spot, great for dates, catching up with friends...or grabbing a glass of delicious artisanal wine. We were lucky enough to be served by the owner who had great knowledge of the wines and food plates offered. He was very friendly and even chatted us up about New York (our hometown). When I come back out here I will most definitely bring my friends-- I recommend the duck liver mousse for sure!More

We met an old friend in this trendy, fun wine and cheese and charcuterie bar. Arriving a bit early, the staff was gracious and efficient, finding us a place to sit in the crowded room. The ambiance was of casual fun and the wine was...great. We were there on an unusually warm day, and it was warm inside.More

I stumbled upon Union Larder one wet Saturday afternoon in San Francisco and found it quite difficult to leave. Great selection of local and international wines by the bottle and the glass with an excellent bar menu with some fine local charcurerie. Settle in with...a generous glass our your favourite red or white and take it easy.More

Really enjoyed our pre-dinner stop here....loved the high ceilings and big glass windows. Very crowded on a Thursday night. The House Gruner was lovely. Ordered 2 cheeses and it was just perfect as an appetizer.

Walking the trolley-line amongst San Francisco’s beautiful neighborhoods, we found Union Larder quite by chance. We had Rabbit Tourrine, Duck Froie Gras, two flights of oyster from three pacific-regions, and two wonderful cheeses (a Monchego and a Tremor Truffle). The owner was very knowledgeable, pleasant,...and an overall pleasure to chat with.More

Now here is a great take on the classic, consistent, and dare I say - perfect wine/cheese bar! Very high attention to quality. Unless you live in France, imho nothing gonna beat it. Wish they had existed back in the day when I lived in...Russian Hill - well worth the effort to get up there no matter where you come from. Servers are professional but also sweet - you can relax - always feel happy being there. Delicious cheese boards - good wine. Missing it already😝More

We really enjoyed the food and wine. It gets crowded and doesn’t have the charm of smaller local places. However, I would still recommend

We have been to San Francisco many times and while on the trolley car on Hyde we saw Union Larder. The outside is so appealing that I knew we had to stop. We were not disappointed, although 5pm on a Friday may not be the...perfect time for easy access to seating it is perfect for the fun neighborhood atmosphere. The wine list is wonderful and the cheese and charcuterie choices are the best I’ve had. The ambiance is cool, casual and chic. I would highly recommend this for a relaxing stop and a fun evening that is truly a San Francisco treat!More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
