Our group of foodie friends were cautiously optimistic that a tasting dinner at Son's and daughters was going to be a dining phenomenon for $120 per person. Well......it was hilarious ALL of the tasting dishes were inedible due to extreme saltiness. ....including deserts The other major fault was cold food . Food grouping and choice of ingredients were clashing and... More

Interesting place with nice presentations, but less than stunning food. OK service. Not the place to go if you are really hungry.

The chance to dine here was provided by our Son(s) and Daughter(s) who wanted my wife to have a memorable birthday. And it was amazing. The tasting menu includes some very creative dishes and photos are included with this review.

We enjoyed the experience immensely. Dinner here was an entertainment experience for the palate. They are experimenting with edgy flavors and are not afraid of challenging their guests, so don't expect roast beef and mashed potatoes. Very knowledgeable staff.

Went out to dinner at Sons and Daughters in Sfo: beautiful night out, simple ingredients and beautiful food alliances, all emanating from the restaurant farm in The Santa Cruz mountains. 7 courses but a lot of courtesy additions in between courses, the staff is very knowledgeable and charming, the restaurant intimate and quiet. One thing though, I would recommend opting... More

Warm, comforting, gourmet - beyond all expectations. It's hard to explain how serene the setting and staff are - like you are home. And the courses are approachable while at the same time being exciting and unexpected.

Service rating = 5. Food rating = 4. We loved experiencing this many-course food tasting. Service was top-notch; we loved how the servers seemed to follow a choreographed cadence for dish presentation and removal, silverware swaps, and refills. Every one of them was super friendly and happy to help in any way. Some bites of food were amazing, EVERY bite... More

This being a one star Michelin restaurant, sets the expectations high. All of my expectations were met. Service swift and attentive. A few minor glitches, but it's not 2 or 3 star, so no problem. Food very inventive, pushing the limits. Some of the dishes were a little off to my taste, but in my opinion they still deserve the... More

This is one of the best restaurants I've been too. Everything tasted great. Ingredients seemed very fresh. I particularly liked the beef, it fell apart when I cut into it. I've never had meat that good before. The service was also great. In addition to the 7 course dinner, I was surprised to get some extra items. First, I was... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
