"Emblematic" of San Francisco, this "always-true" Hayes Valley Mediterranean is "still at the top of its game" with an "incredibly well-executed" menu of "delectable" , locally, sustainably sourced seasonal dishes, "fab oysters" and "must-haves" like the "succulent" brick-oven chicken for two; with "expertly mixed cocktails" and "pro" service enhancing a "lively" late-night scene in "stylish" yet "comfortable" duplex digs, it's a "culinary legend" that's perennially "hip and unique."

Zuni Café gave us the VIP treatment and the whole experience was fantastic. First, we requested a particular table when we made our reservation online and they came through on that ask. We had a great view from the upper level. The waitress was personable, quick, and helpful. We ordered the whole chicken, which takes an hour to cook, and it was well worth the wait. I will be going back the next time I am in town.

San Francisco classic that does not disappoint. You might hesitate to get the roast chicken to try something different or flashier but I would say Zuni Cafe is known for their roast chicken for a reason. Because it is so delicious! Also a hearty portion for two. We had quite a bit we took home. Great service as well!

The stars all align at this casual and classy eatery. From the first greeting at door to each ordered course, the food and service shine. The famous chicken is extraordinary. Wine list is strong. Sides and desserts are on point. Oysters and martinis a must.
