The dream of Farallon was realized by Chef/Owner Mark Franz and Restaurateur Pat Kuleto over 20 years ago. Currently, the team headed by Executive Chef Jason Ryczek focuses on executing a classic San Francisco dining experience with modern sophistication through 3 and 4 course tasting menus.

Our jellyfish lounge offers a comfortable bar with tavern-esque dishes. The raw bar is full of wonderful raw/chilled options. Looking for a more casual dining experience? Ask for our Méduse menu.

At the whim of the ocean, we favor the seasonal bounty of our shores and keep true to our high expectation of seasonality, sustainability, artisan production and humanely raised animals.

Come see one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the city with an artists mosaic ceiling dating back a century. Farallon is truly a unique experience in San Francisco fine dining.

Private party facilities
Opened in June 1997 by famed restaurateur/designer Pat Kuleto and Chef Mark Franz, Farallon is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square in the historic Elks Building. Recognizing the demand for large parties, Pat and Mark have also created three private dining rooms on the fourth floor.
