What should have been a pleasant business lunch, catching up, industry chat, turned into a "what not to do" in terms of managing your customers experience. We were seated at noon, 15 minutes after our 11:45 reservation. We've both eaten at Wayfare Tavern many times,...More

After initial teething issues, we really enjoyed our evening here. It's a busy place and on arrival it was clear that something had gone awry with our reservation. Given this was the last night of a long trip through California, I was not pleased especially...More

Super excited to go. Had heard amazing things. The atmosphere and decor was lovely. That's about where it ended. The service was snotty and rude from the hostess to the managers. Our server and another employee stood in a corner and snickered at guests most...More

Reminiscent of an old English tavern with lots of charm. Busy and crowded .... we had a drink at the bar before being seated. It is a tavern atmosphere not a restaurant. The food is substantial and suits the environment.

Being recommended here by a friend, we made reservations. We were taken upstairs to a small table. Our waiter was informative. He told us to get the deviled eggs as an appetizer. They were creamy but bland. I ordered a butter lettuce salad, small but...More

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

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,
