A San Francisco brasserie & gathering place, at ONE Yerba Buena Lane, the intersection of downtown’s cultural, shopping and business corridors. An urban neighborhood restaurant, offering a lively dining experience, for anytime bites or drinks; a meal with friends, business associates or family; or picking up to enjoy at home.
Bluestem Brasserie features a familiar brasserie menu of fresh, simply composed dishes; distinct cocktails; a satisfying wine list with 12 on tap, sourced directly from Napa and Sonoma's finest producers - offered at a great value.
Named after the indigenous North American grass favored by cattle, Bluestem will showcase sustainably produced beef from highly regarded purveyors with an emphasis on whole-animal utilization. Ingredients sourced directly from the ranchers. Savory items are balanced by a dessert menu of classic, brasserie-style selections.
A theme of terroir extends from the menu of house-made items to the carefully crafted wine list.

This is perfect for a business lunch - it's beautiful, the staff is gracious, menu interesting, food excellent, noise level not bad. It's close to Moscone center and major hotels. It's also a great place to stop for a bite after visiting SFMOMA or Yerba Buena.

Great looking restaurant. Very personable hosts and waiters. Fun/cool/hipster inside .. we sat on a nice couch for our lunch. Food was very good, unique, surpassed expectations. Lunch for two was a little pricing for two at $75 with tip (it was a business meal but I was personally paying) ... but I would go back for lunch and dinner! Yes, a fun, interesting, unique restaurant in SF :=)

The service was amiable, but the food was mediocre. Overpriced for the quality. The decor is interesting--a bit diner retro with a sprinkling of class, and the location is great.

Overall, I would recommend the Bluestem for great food, cocktails and friendly staff. The service was a bit slow, 10 minutes went by after beinf seated before we saw a staff person, but after that the staff was attentive, just enough.
I would suggest they turn down the music just a notch. Having a conversation was borderline difficult.

The place was close to the hotel/conference, the food was good but nothing special. Expected more considering the price. I have had a lot better for a lot less in San Francisco.
