Just a shell of what it once was. The space is still beautiful, but the food and service were awful. The Cesar salad was overpowered with lemon and the lettuce was wilted. The pork chop was salty and undercooked. The server disappeared for 20 minutes at the end of our meal. Judy Rodgers would be horrified and the current operators should be ashamed of themselves.

"Like the Golden Gate Bridge", this venerable Hayes Valley Mediterranean “mainstay” defines San Francisco for many who fondly recall its "timeless” marquee dishes: the “peerless” brick-oven chicken for two, the "famous" burger and the "superb oyster selection"; “polished” service and a “warm” double-decker setting further burnish its “classic” reputation, made somewhat bittersweet following the recent passing of longtime chef Judy What to order Roast chicken with bread salad (pictured) Bellwether Farm ricotta gnocchi Shoestring fries Insider tip: For a more intimate perch gazing down over fellow diners, ask for an upstairs table upon making a reservation.

Overall poor - poor service, poor management, poor treatment of customers, mediocre food. So disappointing that I'll not go back to what I have called my favorite restaurant. Judy Rodger's and Billy West's masterpiece of California cuisine has been turned into a run of the mill, poorly staffed, poorly trained chop house. Terrible waiter, no management help, and no compassion for diners. I don't think it'll make the Top 100 Restaurants for 2016 if they don't do some serious house-cleaning of their awful front of the house management and service. Many other restaurants in the city care about the dining experience more than Zuni does.

Perhaps my chicken should be famous too because mine comes out kick-a$$ taste for less than $20. I don't need a brick oven to make my roasted chicken come out moist on the inside and crispy skin on the outside. I just need a toaster oven. So, I do cook a lot of chicken at home so I know a good chicken when I taste one. This one, as famous as it was, tasted good. But Not $54 good. I was sorely disappointed and felt I wasted my money on this dish. On the flip side, their appetizer scallop ceivichi was smooth as butter in my mouth. Best dish I've had in ages. I was happy to had eaten that one. Otherwise the atmosphere is lax and service was good. We pretty much let the waiter choose our dishes. However, we did pick the chicken which was the only thing that disappointed us.

The food here is outstanding. The atmosphere is relaxed. Our server was excellent and was witty and quick in her feet. I highly recommend it.

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.

I have no complaints. The roasted chicken is really good. The bread salad that comes with it is a guilty guilty pleasure mmm... The staff is super nice and attentive. The oysters were also great and they had a nice selection as well. All and all you would have a great time here.

This exemplar of California cuisine, once helmed by the legendary Judy Rogers, is an excellent place to bring a date or to celebrate with a small group of friends. Service is reliably good and the food—which has suffered a noticeable decline in quality of late—is still better than many similarly casual establishments in the city.
