A word from The Cavalier
The Cavalier is an all-day London-inspired brasserie, located in the new Hotel Zetta.

This is the third property for restaurateurs Anna Weinberg, James Nicholas & Chef Jennifer Puccio; the team behind Marlowe and Park Tavern. The team has collaborated with award winning San Francisco designer Ken Fulk, who has revamped the interior in deep leather banquettes, polished brass, zinc and white marble, giving it a posh and sultry feel.

Diner Reviews
  • "Cavalier is a wonderful find. My boyfriend and I eat out frequently, at lot of the hot spots and many of the unknowns. Cavalier is the pinnacle for us because the ambiance is great, it's young and vibrant, the food is fabulous and the service is perfection. Ryan is our favorite server and I always want to go back just to see him - but the overall staff is on their game. LOVE this place!"

  • "I was in San Fran for a few days with my kids and we decided to try this place based on the fact that their menu is inspired by traditional Irish/English dishes. The food was amazing. My son had the rib eye which was absolutely perfect, and my daughter had the fish and chips which were also fantastic. We're not usually big dessert people, but the Sticky Toffee Pudding was, in and of itself, a reason to give this place 5 stars. The service was excellent. Friendly and attentive, but not overbearing or stuffy. This was a perfect experience from start to finish."

  • "Food was great, and great bar menu. It was a little bit quiet for a friday night but I was there around 6:45 so maybe a bit early. Trendy interior, upscale-casual atmosphere."

  • "Went to Cavalier for the first time for lunch and greatly enjoyed it. Beautifully done spot, fabulous lobster roll accompanied by the best fries I've had in ages. Nice service. And the bartender knows how to make a terrific bloody mary. Go."

  • "This was our second visit to The Cavalier and the restaurant certainly delivered! From truly professional bartenders, to terrific cocktails, outstanding food and impeccable service by David, this one is a keeper. Everything we tried was bursting with inventive flavors: farro & beats, heirloom tomato & cucumber salad, black cod, ribeye, and the mushroom "pie." Highly recommended!"

  • "I have been here, probably 6 times so far and it never fails me. Food is consistent, beautiful and the flavors are so well balanced. Service is friendly, professional and genuine. Of course I will be back."

  • "Unfortunately we were put in one of the few center tables, which I don't like but not their fault....someone's gotta sit there. Extremely noisey - just like london restaurants, fine with noise level eccept had to repeat everything twice for the waitet - though some of that was probably my accent. Food was good, had the chicken and the fish n chips. Was a little disappointed my Pimms cup didn't have chunks of fruit and cucumber in it - as is custom in the UK."

  • "It was a lovely, sunny, June Sunday morning in San Francisco and "The Cavalier" ended up providing the cherry-on-the-cake. Admittedly, there weren't too many diners that morning but that ended up being perfect for me and my beautiful date. I wanted to impress her and The Cavalier really helped me do that. We took our time to order as we wanted to catch up and there was no pressure to order. All very European! She commented that the choice of teas offered on the menu was very selective and in very good taste! She ordered a Cappuccino and described it as "perfect." The food was tremendous. I ordered "The English" and my date the "Breakfast Sandwich." Delicious and all very tasteful! We'll definitely be back. Many thanks:-)"

  • "Sadly we were consoling ourselves after England crashed out of the World Cup, but our meal was a great distraction. Friendly, fast service, interesting cocktail menu and super food. The wild mushroom pie was delicious and my husband's steak was perfectly prepared."

  • "On my first visit I had the delicious mushroom pie. Others at the table had the lamb scrumpets, and the burger was great."

  • "We enjoyed the food and particularly the fries! Not something to eat every day, but fun to try a new place. Brussel sprout chips as good as Park Tavern. Great cocktails and service was attentive. A little loud for us, and we were seated very close to front door, but overall, we had a good time."

  • "Good dinner option. Most dishes come without sides. Wine by the glass gets poured into generic wine glasses, even though they have better matching ones available."

  • "Everything from the moment that we were seated until we left was wonderful ! It was our third time dining here ; and have loved our experience each time !"

  • "From the moment we walked in we were treated like VIPs and this was our first visit! We were adventurous and not disappointed. We could not have asked for a better experience. If Mom had made Brussels Sprout chips like they do at the Cavalier childhood dinners would have been a lot happier!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was very good- English with a twist, cocktails are great. The service is very attentive, but the staff needs to be more knowledgable about the food and the ingredients. They seem surprised when asked questions. At late lunch time on Saturday the noise was moderate or less, very easy to have a conversation without shouting."

  • "My favorite place to meet friends for lunch! The team is fantastic, the food is great! I also enjoy sitting at the bar, having a snack. The best time to go for me is mid afternoon, you almost have the whole place to yourself. But really, anytime is a great time to enjoy The Cavalier!"

  • "We went for lunch as part of the dine about town event. I had the Cavalier salad to start followed by the Fish and Chips. The food was just okay and certainly not worth the price considering all of the other options in San Francisco."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I went with my wife and we really enjoyed ourselves. I would describe food as high-end, creative pub fare. We have crab and shrimp salad that was delicious served on cucumbers. My fish n chips were great with an interesting pea and cilantro salad on the side. Warm booths. Decent wine list. Pleasant service. I would go back."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I was honestly disappointed with The Cavalier. The décor tries too hard and falls short. I felt as if I were in a stage set. The front staff was friendly and accommodating but our waiter was for lack of a better word, fake, like the décor. The food was only fair and definitely over priced. I had had the Brussel Sprout chips at Park Tavern and ordered again here but they could not sustain their magic at The Cavalier. All in all, it may work for the lunchtime crowd but not for a visitor."

  • "I do not typically like brittish food but the food was phenominal as were the cocktails. The service was equally exceptional. Great experience."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "There was a lot of noise from the bar, and there was a large group sitting near us who were making an awful racket. We went on a Friday evening, which is in hindsight is probably the noisiest time. The restaurant staff did ask the large group to quiet down, which they did."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I love their food, service and ambiance. Everything is delicious right down to the stellar cocktails and desserts. Keep on doing what you're doing. I will of course,be back. "

  • "I'm a big fan of Park Tavern, so I was excited to finally get to Cavalier. But unfortunately, I just don't think it works. The British theme is good enough, but not compelling. The food is *way* over salted, from the brussel sprout chips (which I love at Park Tavern) to the Sunday Chicken. The waiter had an attitude...he was clearly our manager, in his mind. Noise level was too high, but to be fair, there was a drunken table of 12 right near us. At the end of the evening, I had mixed feelings when the manager "invited" us for a drink at Maryanne's the "secret" room in the back. It's a lovely overflow room, and I appreciated the drink, but...he still kicked us out of our dinner table, after less than a 2-hour seating. Won't be back. Too bad."

  • "Upmarket, urban English Pub setting with friendly efficient staff who were most attentive to our dining needs. The fish & chips were the "best" and included a small serving of sweet peas and mint which was perfect. The pear crumble dessert completed our meal with just the right amount of sweetness. Small jars and pots for condiments added to the polished presentation. For us this is a return again restaurant."

  • "Best fish and chips in town. The farro and beet salad was also quite good. It was a great lunch."

  • "Overall experience from the moment I sat for a cocktail, got seated, ordered, ate, and had the opportunity to even have a cocktail at Marianne's it was super. The staff took great care of us, the food was delicious and I had a wonderful night thanks to the Cavalier."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We have become used to service in San Francisco being perfunctory, and yet wait staff still expecting a substantial tip! At The Cavalier the staff worked as a team, they focused on our needs, and made us feel that they wanted us to enjoy our experience at their restaurant. We will happily take friends or colleagues there again ..."

  • "I like the concept. The food was great and they were accommodating of special requests. The burger was really good as were all the starters. Will go back and try some of the other dishes. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Great meal! Cavalier salad delicious, light, flavorful, and healthy. Brussels sprout chips fantastic. Pan-seared black cod out of this world and melts in your mouth. Pride Merlot wonderful. Service incredible. Noise factor: TERRIBLE! And we weren't even in the bar area which is deafening. I don't think anything can be done about it, but it did make having a conversation with one other person really challenging and sometimes painful. But would that keep us from going back? No, we loved it. Maybe brunch or lunch would be better."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "I have eaten at The Cavalier 3 or 4 times and it is always delicious. They make a great Gin 'n Tonic, fish and chips are amazing as is the wild mushroom pie. The waiter was not happy with the way our starter looked so he brought us another one and didn't charge us for either one. I look forward to going back. "

  • "The service was rather sullen, but the food was top notch and the ambience superb. Great décor, welcoming atmosphere (apart from our server), fabulous menu which I'll definitely be back to explore further."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The chicken is very flavorful and moist, the steak with the bone marrow jus is probably the best in the city and the triple cooked french fries are out of this world. The Cavalier salad is bright and tangy with an addictive truffle vinaigrette. And you always need to ger the scotch egg! Amazing food and top notch service. "

  • "Everything is generally good but the bar (the bar tenders and their work product) is the best part about this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I had the burger and fries, with a side of horseradish mashed potatos. The burger was very very good, with the tomato chutney being a great compliment and the bun was nice too. The fries were some of my favorite fries in the city--crisp without being overdone, and very well seasoned. The horseradish mashed potatos were very good too. I was with a group that shared the brussels sprouts chips and crab/shrimp dip to start. The crab/shrimp dip was fine--it was a little too spicy for me, otherwise I probably would have liked it better. The brussels sprouts chips were very good."
