Overall, the food was overrated. Not bad but nothing special which is why it's a 3 star. The Caesar salad and fried radicchio were pretty good so if you're there already, get those as appetizers. The entrees however were underwhelming. The chicken (what they're famous for) is okay and similar to many other American restaurant's grilled chicken and it takes a while. The good thing though is it's a big place so easy to get reservations and the service was really good! Big bar area to hang out in case you're waiting for the rest of your party, you have somewhere to chill and grab a drink.

What can I say... Zuni rules. Zuni has been an SF staple for so long that it's easy to assume that they've become complacent. Not so, It's fabulous. Known for their chicken (which is yes, fabulous), it's their other dishes that round out this landmark on Market. I know there are many fabulous (word of the moment) restaurants in SF but if I were to recommend one to out of town friends, it would be Zuni. It's well rounded and you're guaranteed to get the complementary call the next day. I've had the Tuscan chicken, the burger, the pizza, etc. and it's all great. I've been there for lunch and diner. I don't see the need for detailing out the food because it's the whole package that makes this restaurant and nice place to spend a couple of hours. Zuni is on the expensive side but not over-the-top like many other top SF staples. The setup is interesting as you can be downstairs which has the bar area, the dinning room area or upstairs which is open and lively. Never go away Zuni, you're an SF classic.

I personally have enjoyed Zuni Cafe over the six years I've lived here in the City by the bay. Simply, because of the unique and creative flavors presented on their daily menu (Change everyday), and to top it off - beautiful staff that will accomidate your every need to make sure your dining experience is definitely memoriable. I trust, you will most certainly return for seconds. Bon Appetite. 😉

San Francisco classic! I hate to admit but have been going to ZC for the last 20 years. Great venue, good food and contradictory to general feedback attentive service.

One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. I love the setting. Good, tasty food. Love their bread. At times, I felt, that the maitre de or host judges me a bit too much by how I dress (casual) especially when I take my student son from Berkeley out for dinner (very casual). At times, I feel, they prefer me to sit at the bar rather than at a table -- and when I ask for a table, they will make me wait for table (even if tables seem to be empty). But I enjoy my visits anyway every time. Highly recommended.

This is one of my staple restaurants in the city. This place is a staple for experiencing San Francisco. Restaurant has been on this block for over 20 years and still managing to deliver high quality service and food. The bar has a wide selection of high quality spirits. The decor has a clean modern feel with lots of wood and glass. Top two items on the menu, chicken for two and the gnocchi. If you are planning to get the chicken or have a little bit of a wait. Tell the hostess that you are planning to order and they will time your meal accordingly! Otherwise, you will need to wait the full hour for this dish.

Every few years, an "occassion" brings me here. And every time I eat here, I leave wondering "why don't I eat here more?" It's not expensive compared to how bad SF has gotten, and the consistency is unrivaled. And few people realize: the desserts are phenomenal.

Known for their roast chicken. The roast chicken is worth it and the shoestring potatoes are nice. Other dishes Ive tried are good but not spectacular. If you go here and don't try the chicken, you are probably wasting your money.
