The chefs and wait staff here are culinary students and give you extra special care and food presentation. I was here for lunch and had a lovely pork loin, risotto, and steamed greens combo - all for under $11. The meal was topped off by a cappuccino (the server told us he made it 3 times to get it "just right") and cookie sampler. You can choose from a varied selection of salads, sandwiches or entrees; I believe the menu changes weekly but you have about six options in each category. The service can be slow at times, I'm told, but our service was very good. You'll have to be sure school is in session or the restaurant will be closed! They're located in downtown San Francisco near Union Square and the Financial District so it's a cost effective, convenient, and tasty option for lunch or dinner.

The food was a fantastic value. We didn't know it was part of the school until we were leaving. I highly recommend it to anyone at the Moscone Center who is looking for a quiet, sit-down place for lunch.

The Educated Palate is a restaurant completely run by the students of City College San Francisco's Culinary Arts and Hospitality programs. The restaurant is open for lunch Monday-Fridays, but we chose to attend one of their Thursday night , fixed price, 3 course theme dinners. The night we went, the theme was "French Bistro" and it was wonderful! From the service, to the food, the the affordable prices of the dinner and wine, it was an elegant, delicious experience.

I recently had lunch at the Educated Palate Restaurant; it is run by college students (majoring in food and catering) in the building of the City College of San Francisco. It was directly across the street from our hotel, the San Francisco Marriott. The atmosphere was pleasant, the service was great, and the food was gourmet quality at reasonable prices.... a great bargain, plus it felt good to support the students who were trying so hard to do a good job in their field.
