    Excellent service. Very creative appetizer. Entree filet mignon disappointing, saucing very mediocre. Not at all interesting. Nice moderate wine list with good glass choices.

    Unfortunately, the Grand Hyatt is undergoing renovation of its entrance and lobby, and our waiter told us they are going to move their restaurant to the ground floor. Obviously, it will have no view. They intend to "sell" the top floor location to an independent operator. So, this will be the end of Grandviews.

    My wife and I had a very nice time at this restaurant. They knew in advance that it was our wedding anniversary by acknowledging it when we arrived, and by surprising us with a free dessert at the end of our meal. Very nice service! Unfortunately the fog rolled in so we didn't get to enjoy much of a view from our window table. But at least it was interesting to see it roll in!

    I love bringing out of town guests here - they always love the view. I do, too. I've only dined here at lunch times, various days of the week, but the food and service have always been consistently very very good! Convenient to Union Square, easy to get to, not noisy. I'll dine there again, for sure!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/16/2012
    We came here to enjoy dinner by sunset over San Francisco and we weren't disappointed! We felt the menu selection was a bit limited, and they didn't offer any specials, but we had the Filet Mignon and the Scallops, and they were both very good. The other drawback to the restaurant is the fact that the bar is on the other side of the bend in the hallway, and it grew increasingly noisy and drew a very different crowd from the restaurant. By the time we left, it was difficult to hear each other across the table. But, the view was what we came for, and we would come back - we might just ask to be seated farther away from the bar next time. The service was fine - the support staff did a great job covering for our head waiter.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/7/2012
    Excellent place to take visitors to enjoy SF views whilst dining.Unfortunately the best views are in the bar area which doesn't make sense as the diners are spending more $ per head. Menu could have been a little more extensive as there wasn't a lot of choice. Food quality was good, not worth the visit alone, its not fine dining as you would expect. If you want an experience for the palette give it a miss, if you want to impress your guests with a view then go.

    Noon on a Sunday and I couldn't get any eggs at brunch. I guess they are actively looking to avoid having customers. The hotel union must be running the building. The servers were curt and unprofessional. Despite an amazing view, you should avoid if at all possible. Maybe go there for a drink. Food no.

    Service was great and the views are amazing, but the food was just average and incredibly overpriced. We understood that we were paying for the view in our meal price, but $180 for 2 adults and 3 kids seemed really steep. The views were amazing though - probably a better choice for hitting the bar with adults only.

    I dine here on a regular basis. This visit was a disappointing. I had to chase down a waiter for our beverages. I had to chase down our waiter who only took 2 out of 4 dessert orders. My 3 glasses of mimosa were anything but consistent. The first glass was with flat sparkling wine. The second glass was anemic in color. The third glass was finally right. And it was my birthday.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place. It's relatively small, but the views are expansive. Coit Tower and Alcatraz are front and center in a breathtaking view. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The bar view was better than the dinner view, so just drinks and appetizers would be a great night out too! Service was excellent and friendly— thanks Johnnie!

    We wanted a special place to take a friend and her family while we were visiting in San Francisco, and we enjoy dining in "high places." The Grandviews met every condition we had: a great view, a menu that offered good food with fresh ingredients and was still affordable, and a place where the entire family was welcome. We would gladly dine there again!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    First, they couldn't find my reservation, so we waited at the bar while a table was available. The bar staff was very slow, it took us 15 mins before a server would come by and take our drink request. The bar was by no means packed where we would expect that kind of wait. The view was phenomenal though, almost as good as The View (Marriott on 3rd & Mission). As for dinner, my date ordered the Risotto which was very good as was our warm spinach salad. I ordered the NY Strip and it was near impossible to cut and I ordered it medium rare. I was expecting a whole lot more from this place and was let down big time. I would recommend it only for a drink or two and maybe dessert, I would not have a meal here again. Thumbs up to the piano player!

    A lot of the reviews said that the food and service were bad. Nevertheless I decided to try for myself. Unfortunately the reviews were correct. It was Valentine Day and we had reservations, we sat down @ 6:45pm. We were early so there were plenty of empty tables (thus not busy yet). No one even came to take our order until 7:15 our first course came around 8 then next course 8:30 and main around 9. To get our bill we had to flag the hostess down, this was around 9:20. Almost 3 hrs for dinner!? The food was bland nothing special for the price. I just don't understand why the Hyatt's management does nothing about the substandard food and service. Read your reviews. Thumbs down!

    A great evening with a fantastic view in wonderful clear weather. Had relatives visiting from Germany on a 100 day around the world cruise for an overnight stop in San Francisco. A special occasion called for a special dining venue. Food preparation tops but felt that the menue a bit limited and heavy on beef. Still, a great evening and much enjoyed.
