Tucked inside the W Hotel, this farm-to-table restaurant serves American fare in a modern setting.- Google
"Food is pricey, so I would likely try to go back for happy hour instead."
"And sweet potato fries."

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.

During an AMA seminar we decided to study the restaurants suggest by Marriot marquis hotel and a very good option related with distances from hotel, prices and rates is Trace and we can say that is a nice decorated, tasted restaurant

A little bit on the expensive side. These trace restaurants are a w signature restaurant. The menu is quite into the organic side (chicken my fave). It is a good option if you are staying around this area or you want to try something modern. I'd rather venture myself into the mission area and try something more authentic.

Trace replaced XYZ, my last dining experience was exceptional, they did a great job with the new decor and menu a must for anyone visiting or a local trying out a new restaurant.

Pro Tip: When you have the chance to try lamb belly pastrami, YOU RUN TO TRY IT!!! Little bummed out to be eating my first I/O meal in SF at the hotel bar but I must have done something right!!!! Back of the bar menu has the Bar Bites and that's where you'll find this treasure. Lamb Belly Pastrami with a harrisa cole slaw all wrapped up in delicious warmy flat bread, served with a deviled egg emulsion (think deviled egg chopped up in a bowl with blue cheese chunks!) and sweet potato fries. Dear Lord this was excellent!! I'm thinking I will come here for the food alone when not staying here! :)

Definitely not a San Francisco feel, although that's not necessarily a negative. Although you may not be able to tell from the street, I felt like I had just walked into a Vegas restaurant instead. Private and open dining space, with a separate upstairs bar with couches, etc. Vegas feel based on neon LED lights, dimly lit spaces, and chandeliers. Service was great and they have some very creative cocktails! Food is pricey, so I would likely try to go back for happy hour instead.
