Tucked inside the W Hotel, this farm-to-table restaurant serves American fare in a modern setting.- Google
"Impeccable service on new years day and the walnut bread is fabulous!"

I felt very lucky when I got here. The parking was in downtown San Francisco, and I actually scored a spot right next to the restaurant and I swear it was the only 'free' spot in the city. The restaurant doesn't validate, so just be aware of that when you go. However, parking aside, which I would guess could be difficult in a rush, it is WELL worth the visit. This is one of the best restaurants I have been to. The food was phenomenal.

We HATED this place called Trace. It's a place where the pace of the food delivery and service is so bad that it brought frowns to our face - what a disgrace. Oh what a disgrace! The waiter must have misplaced our order and then did nothing, absolutely nothing about it for over 45 minutes! What a head case! We arrived at 11:54 am (Google told me that), was promptly seated in a nice booth. We promptly ordered. After about 30+ minutes, we realized that somethings wrong. Called over the waiter. Came back in ten minutes and said we were ticket #3. We said "hey fella, we've watched people come and go ordering the same burger yet here we sit!". The manager checked but did nothing. One would think that they would rush our food through - nope, nada. We left at 1:31 pm after eating a turkey burger and fries. You would have thought this was a multi-course Moroccan place.

Service was excellent. Most of the food was killer. It's not my kind of thing. too hipster. But I am likely to take the wife again.

Good food but way too pricey. Picked up a travelzoo deal and without it, I wouldn't have found this place. Service charge was insane though and at the end, spent more than I would've without the voucher.

If you're wondering if you should get the Travelzoo brunch certificate, definitely do it. The brunch here was solid. * French toast: Very savory (not on the sweet side) - you could have told me it was a quiche and I would have believed it. But it was delicious. * Eggs chilaquilles: Good. It's a bit on the decadent side (which is hard to discern from reading its description alone) - basically an eggs and nachos dish with hot sauce and guacamole. * Oysters: A bit on the expensive side (4 for $14) but it was very good! There is some jalapeno that added just enough "bite" to it. Service was very good (the restaurant was relatively empty when we came in at 12:30pm) Protip: The gratuity will already be included in your bill if you're using Travelzoo. So look at the bill when you get it.
