As I said in my review of Kokkari, after an amazing experience at French Laundry, wanted two straightforward places w good food in SF. Zuni Cafe has a rich history and remains very popular. Sat down five minutes after reservation after standing in jammed bar - no problem. Our server was from Brooklyn, an ex-pat for 7 years and had a big smile and knew what she was doing. Ally, Ally's mom and I had a many dished meal which was a good sampling of the menu. Renowned Ceasar Salad was perfect. Salumi plate small and nondescript. Polenta fabulous. Fried veg very good. 2 Pasta dishes gnocchi and bucatini were as Groucho Marx would say disappointing and such small portions. The roast chicken was nothing short of perfect. All and all a very good meal. Amities Gourmandes, ally's dad

I knew this restaurant as I ate there years ago: I took some friends there yesterday and.... we all have been very deceived by the burger, the pizza the orecchiette.....big change down from the good memory of previous visits to Zuni!

People don't lie about the chicken. It's worth it. How do they get it to taste so good?!?!

I finally had a chance to dine at zuni cafe last weekend with a few friends. we made the reservations about two weeks in advanced and had a very spacious table for 4 upstairs. two of us ordered the roast chicken and it was worth the one hour wait. every piece was juicy and flavorful. they had a meyer lemon ice cream on the menu for dessert which had just the right tartness to it. this place is a san francisco institution and i definitely will be back.

We came here after flying in from nyc that day, got a recommendation from a jewelry store owner, and came here to have a wonderful meal. Ricotta cheese gnocchi - the most wonderful flavors, light and airy. Roast chicken - just like what everyone says it is...wait an hour but worth it. Service was right on, timing was great - the atmosphere is loud, a little hard to have a conversation, but it's all about the food anyway. Would definitely come back. Thanks for a great evening!

Zuni Cafe is an SF institution and it never disappoints. The bread salad and roast chicken is a classic dish. Zuni Cafe is reputed to be the best restaurant in the City and I agree!
