We absolutely loved this restaurant when we visited San Francisco. The food was delicious and nicely presented (we enjoyed the chicken and several side dishes). But the best part...the homemade doughnuts for dessert. WOW! Wish we lived here, we would be back again tonight!

Heard their chicken was special, and I was not disappointed. It was so light and tasty. Popovers were very good. Sat at the chef's table which was fun to watch all the action in the kitchen. The burgers looked great but did not have.

We stopped in at Wayfare Tavern while walking around San Francisco for lunch. The lunch menu was pretty small and only 1 out of the 4 of us found something on the menu. We asked the waitress if they could make grilled chicken sandwiches for...More

Upscale American restaurant with vibrant atmosphere ! First floor offers bar seats and separate boxes and is much more noisy than second floor, where you can find free standing tables. I prefer the noisier part - sit at the bar if you are visiting as...More

What a great find - especially as not mix is open in the financial district on a Sunday night. Fried chicken and mac and cheese a bit more of a delicacy here than back home. Also check out the Yorkshire puddings!

I have been on “Burger Quest,” ever since a favorite San Francisco restaurant made a drastic change to their Burger, which was not to my liking. I have mostly been sampling Burgers in the SoMa, Financial District and Union Square, so far, but I realized...More

Tyler Florence has done an excellent job with this restaurant. The food was outstanding and the staff was excellent. They also have a great wine selection. Highly recommend for a wonderful evening out.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
