Diner Reviews
  • "Always enjoyable before going to the theater and food is good plus it's a quiet getaway right on union square."

  • "This restaurant was once one of the finest in San Francisco, but their target traveler market has declined and that is reflected in the dining room. It is not pleasurable to eat ones dinner and have to look at a hairy man at the next table in a tank top. The service was good and the food acceptable."

  • "For my mother-in-laws 87th birthday, we treated her to a show at the Curran in San Francisco and supper at the Westin St. Francis Oak Room. We were treated like royalty. The service was excellent. Everyone was very attentive. And the food was beyond perfect. I am a gourmet chef and have traveled extensively throughout the United States. I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in New York, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Hawaii (more than one island), San Diego, Seattle and Washington D.C. Our meal surpassed all others. I will definitely recommend the Oak Room to anyone who enjoys good food and I will highly recommend your online reservation service. Thank you for making the day special for a very special lady."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. My wife had the salmon and I had the flat iron steak. The steak melted in your mouth. Service was very attentive. The r Restaurant is old school look. Dark wood etc I would highly recommend. Ool"

  • "We wanted the 3 course, glass of wine included, special dinner. It was not listed on either of the menus, both the ala carte and prix fixe. We asked our waiter for the menu for that dinner and he described for us. The food was NOT good. For example, the meat was tough, the crab chowder devoid of any crab flavor (though there were small pieces of what looked like crab), the Creme Brulee was the texture of grainy pudding. OTOH, our server was great, attentive, helpful, really outstanding. The hostess and entire wait staff were excellent. We got the strong impression the restaurant is designed for the tourists who stay at the hotel in which it's located, and not for San Francisco residents who might be return customers."

  • "Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service was quite good. The ambiance is not spectacular, but ok for a hotel dining venue."

  • "The food and service staff were excellent. My companion made many requests and they were all met. The place was quiet ,making dinner very pleasant and relaxing. My steak dinner was cooked perfectly as requested and was accompanied by four differently cooked veggies. . Seldom do I get two veggies sides without being charged extra. I also enjoyed the old world quiet charm setting with all the wood work which may not be enjoyed by all. The wine list is adequate and affordable. The evening dinner turned out to be one of the most relaxing one I have had in many months."

  • "The Oak Room (previously The English Grill) has been a significant part of the Iconic St.Francis Hotel for decades. It provides the diner with an atmospheric which is elegant, quiet and traditional. The capacious oak beamed room is reminiscent of times past. The service is excellent. There is a lot of space between tables providing a high level of privacy. The menu is quite varied and not overwhelming. Most modern restaurants are noisy, crowded, trendy. The Oak Room is a delightful trip to an older, traditional and more genteel San francisco"

  • "The best thing about the Oak Room is the decor. The food was on par with a Longhorn Steakhouse...certainly nothing special. The price is far too high for the experience."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I would not recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere was fine but the food was not up to par considering the prices. It started with my request for iced tea. They brought a bottle of iced tea which was $5.50. Really? The Dungeness chowder was more like a vaguely cheese flavored potato soup. The prime rib was decent and the baby vegetables were good. But I had to go through two over-done baked potatoes before settling on mashed potatoes. Considering the meal was $58, it was not up to par. There are plenty of other places in the area that offer better food for the same prices."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The food was actually very good (Lobster ravioli, Beef filet, French onion soup, Prime Rib + wine and dessert). The restaurant was nearly empty, so we had the undivided attention of the servers, but they weren't hovering at all just very attentive. It was very quiet and relaxing."

  • "We had our Valentine dinner at Oak Room, they made us wait 15 min because they were over booked and after 15 min they gave us our table. it took them 2 hours to bring our food and food wasn't so good either. we're not going back to this place."

  • "I was staying in the St Francis and didn't really want to go out. I had the grilled pork chop w white bean ragout Delicious."

  • "Great food (crabcakes and manicotti were delicious). Nice atmosphere. Waitress was kind enough to switch out the prixe fixe dessert because I was allergic to one of the ingredients (chocolate torte was yum!) BUT we were the last group of the night so they definitely hustled us out. In at nine pm out by ten fifteen? For a three course meal and coffee? Thanks but no thanks. I would give this place another try but earlier in the evening so I have time to enjoy the experience."

  • "We were looking forward to having a good meal with good service--the kind of service one would expect from a world-class hotel. We did NOT get that kind of service!!! Our waitress was an older woman who had a bad attitude. Every request was met with a look or a verbal response that said "you want what?! Why?!" Service was slow--although that could have been the kitchen's fault also. We noticed that the party that came in ahead of us did not receive their food any quicker than we did. Two of us had a good meal. The 3rd person found his short ribs over-cooked and tough, as were the "creamed kale" which wasn't "creamed" at all. The only time the waitress came by quickly was to present us with the check and to process the payment."

  • "We came in for the Dine About Time and had to practically beg for that menu."

  • "St Francis Hotel elegance. A calm, quiet, well-appointed dining room, with comfortable chairs for lingering. The service could not have been better if the wait staff attended only to us. The food was delivered timely, but without rush. The servings are generous, perfectly prepared, with high quality meat, seafood and veggies. A perfect dining experience."

  • "This place is were a group can meet to mingle or discuss things go on a nice date or aniversery. It is not for partying. The food is great and has wine and some drinks to order. Over all take a date there to talk go for dinner the food is great."

  • "Cant believe we spent Christmas Dinner there...... Over rated, over priced and very little Christmas atmosphere! International group of 6 expected alot more for our money, seemed reasonable then they put on 18.5% tax and compulusary tip. Never recommend to anybody!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The buffet had a good number of selections available. The staff was friendly and attentive. They offered champagne to the guests as they waited for their table to become available. Most of the food however was unremarkable. It was presented nicely, however the flavor was rather bland. Two of us spent $250 on the meal so we expected more."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We were in San Francisco for Christmas and chose the Oak Room for dinner. I felt a little disappointed that we had paid $125 for a buffet. The waiter was very average. He spent a lot of time on other tables and almost ignored us. I'm not sure if it was because we were tourists or because he just took a disliking to us. We felt very disappointed and left the suggested tip begrudgingly. Only 3 nights earlier in a different restaurant we gave a waitress a 30% tip for her amazing service. The best part of the evening at the Oak Room would have had to have been the pianist."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We booked the hotel main dinning restaurant mainly because we were staying in the hotel for the College football game. I made the reservation far in advance for Christmas Day Dinner with a very nice lady. Then the day before Christmas I learned we could have our football player with us for dinner, I went right to the Oak room and explained I needed to add a person and she was so helpful and made it happen. They were all so nice and what a classy time we had, food was wonderful, and we all had a special christmas at the Oak Room. Thank you."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Many families were is SF for Christmas, but finding a good place to find a first-class restaurant for Christmas dinner can be challenging. The Oak Room provided a first-class, wonderful, and traditional Christmas dinner (with other well-prepared options as well), in an environment that fill with music and ready to feed excited (and well-mannered) children. The wine offerings are good and complementary of the meal. The fact that the Oak Room is part of the St. Francis Hotel (and across the street from Union Square) made it that more magical of a night. After dinner, we walked through the hotel, enjoyed the decorations (inside and outside), and then took the cable car for an enjoyable evening ride."

  • "The Oak Room came through; very good hotel food and nicely done buffet, great service and good price."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The buffet was outstanding!! We could have eaten just from there, excellent selection f seafood, the crabs and salmon were delicious!!! Would deinitelly go back again! The ambience was exactly what we were looking for for a special day like Christmas: warm, selective, romantic tones, wood and velvet textures, really cosy and elegant atmosphere! Romantic and family friendly at the same time, like being invited to someone's house!"

  • "CHRISTMAS DINNER. THE FOOD WAS GOOD HOWEVER ...... EXTRA TABLES WERE CRAMMED INTO THE OAK ROOM AND DINERS AND STAFF WERE SHOVING AGAINST THE DINERS AND TABLES. IT WAS A VERY UNCOMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE. WE COULD NOT WAIT TO GET OUT OF THERE!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We were staying at the Westin St. Francis and decided to have Christmas dinner at The Oak Room. We were seated about 20 minutes late, but I guess that is fine for Christmas eve. They had a 3 course Christmas dinner which we had. The entrees were good, and the steaks my 2 sons and I had were fine, but the pork chops my wife was very dry and overcooked."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Just bad... Food was over cooked and dry. Though that was not the worst part. Very poor service from timeliness to incorrect orders brought to table. The ultimate was one of the guests at our table ( party of 5) was hit in the head with a desert menu by the server. I mentioned my concerns to manager as our group was leaving and was told it was the customers fault for staying too long. Interesting as we were there about 45 minutes more than we wanted."

  • "We made a reservation based upon other people's reviews. We were very happy with the food which was fresh and full of flavor. We had the prime rib and salmon and both dishes were cooked to order and arrived hot. Service was good and the wine list is excellent. We will definitely go back when we are in the City."

  • "Every year a group of us get together for Christmas tea in San Francisco. This year we tried the Westin and were delighted. Half of our party was late, but they seated us anyway. Our server was incredibly attentive the entire time. Once everyone arrived we were served promptly. The food was wonderful, and additional sandwiches were offered which is pretty much unheard of. I've had tea at the Palace and the Fairmont, but the service at the Westin was really far superior. We will return!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I had made reservations a few months ago asked to wait 15 minutes we arrived on time really not the seating I had requested after waiting kinda embarrassed I recommended this place cause we will go elsewhere next time."

  • "I hadn't been to the Oak Room for years, but thought it would be perfect for a slow holiday lunch with an out of town friend. As I remembered, the room is quite lovely. Very old San Francisco. Unfortunately the food was hit-and-miss. The crab chowder was amazing. The caesar salad was bland. The bigger disappointment were the prices. Lunch for two, with coffee but no cocktails was nearly $100 with tip. We could have had a much, much more spectacular meal--and experience--for that much money. I don't think I'll be back."

  • "We had lunch here during the holiday season before a matinee. The scallops were very good and the ambiance very old SF. Quiet enough for conversation, with tables well spaced. Expensive, but a good choice for special occasions. Only thing missing is a view or windows- this is a totally enclosed space, albeit with lovely wood paneling throughout."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "I don't understand why the service was sooooo slooooow. it was about 70% full but the dinner took 2 of us TWO HOURS! We ordered the 3 course set menu so it wasnt any food that needed extra time to prepare.. My boyfriend felt the portion was small. I was disappointed because they ran out of Prime rib, which was the reason we chose to go there in the first place. I ended up with the salmon which was very good, but after waiting for your dinner to arrive for SO LONG, you end up trying to hurry up and finish the dinner., and hence not enjoying it at all. No apologies nor explanation of why the dinner was so slow. I have very fond childhood memories of StFrancis hotel, so I am going to pretend I never went to the Oak Room Restaurant."
