Your waiter will probably ask you if you want the roasted chicken. Just say "Yes" as it is one of the meals it is known for and it takes an hour to prepare it (and it is well worth the wait). My friends and I ordered some wine and appetizers and the hour long wait was not really that long given the excellent company. Reservations are recommended if not essential given how busy this place this. Enjoy!

Underwhelming and overpriced. The dishes we had (anchovies starter; arugula salad; lamb shanks) were uninspired, and the decor was equally unremarkable. Service was attentive, however. Overall, seems like an OK place for an older crowd (avg. age looked ~60), but with so many great options in SF, not much reason to come back here.

A landmark restaurant right on Market Street, they have been going strong since 1979! Zuni is central to many neighborhoods and a short cab away from most parts of town. Parking is tough around here so better to take public or uber. Fresh oysters are a must, The menu changes daily, and they are open late, make a rez to be guaranteed a seat, but you can drop in too.

This restaurant is a breath of fresh air on dirty Market Street. I was a Zuni twice and like the food a lot. They are famous for their chicken which lives up to its reputation because it is tasty and moist, caveat it takes 30 minutes to prepare so go with someone you like :) their Cesar salad is also famous and tasty, the lettuce has the right crunchiness and the crouton are well seasoned. I also had their famous burger-- delicious- served on focaccia bread and with cheese with a side of fries. I really enjoyed both and had a good hot chocolate while I was waiting. The staff is friendly and the the service is fast. I will definitely go back!

Perfect ambience! The staff is really friendly. The fried full chicken is a must try. I really liked their cocktail menu as well. Booking in advance helps but not necessary.

"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 Rodgers.

Note: order the roasted chicken in advance, since it takes a while (at least an hour) to prepare. Give yourself plenty of time. Everything is prepared "farm fresh in a sustainable manner," so dont feel too guilty about eating that squab. The squab was fantastic BTW. Ambiance is comfortable and casual, so come here with a good friend.

Not impressed, very disappointing after waiting 45 min to sit down. Was a little rushed by the wait staff to order. Staff was friendly but recommended a dish that was not good at all. Was very disappointing for us after spending 40 on breakfast and not really eating it and not as good as the reviews say they are.
