This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner
in a city with tons of excellent restaurants, there is absolutely no reason to pay $120+ for a casual two-course dinner for 2. i don't even remember what exactly i ate or how it tasted, and that tells you how impressed i was. i would rate it 3 stars if they cut their price in half for the same food and after they fire their snubbish hostesses.
Zuni cafe is a favorite of mine. The pros are: great great food with lots of options, modern decor with a casual fun environment and the service is good and knowledgable. Also the wine/drink list is terrific. It's ideal for going late at night and ordering some appetizers.
Cons: You must make reservations to eat at a decent hour, it's pricey and parking is really difficult. Overall, I will give Zuni 5 stars because the food quality is so good the pros strongly outweigh the cons as an ideal little spot to eat in San Francisco.
what they say is true...the chicken is every bit as good as they say! definitely worth the wait - order it as soon as you sit down. we had a few appetizers and a salad as we waited, which weren't as good or memorable as the chicken. i can't even remember what we had! the desserts are fun if you like a variety of granitas. but the roast chicken is definitely worth it!
I used to go to Zuni almost every weekend at some point. On sunny days, you can eat outside on market street and people watch. They have a decent brunch menu; the hamburger is really good and the polenta/eggs dishes are good too. And the shoe string potatoes are to die for, literally!
The view of San Francisco from this funky little cafe is worth checking out. It features a courtyard with a
fountain that lets you take in the sun on a non foggy San Francisco day. The best part of ...
