We've been going to Sons & Daughters for 7 years and they continue to refine their cuisine and service. Their food and wine pairing remain among the best in SF and they always make us feel welcome. I have no hesitation in recommending them for a night of fine dining.

We loved this experience. It was like going to a great event . We arrived to Juliana who greeted every one by name and wished don happy birthday . She had called to talk about the Menu during the week

From the linen table cloth to the silverware and the fireplace it was well done. Comfy chairs and excellent service the woman sommelier suggested 2 fabulous wines
The the feast started with 8 (I think more) courses the food creatives and beautiful served

We had a blast for 3.5 hours in this cozy restaurant

The decor is a little funky ( a house renovated but we loved it)
Only ding was the music (weird) but did not spoil our fun

We would go again

I recently moved to the Bay Area from Louisiana and was just able to host my friend for a visit. Sons & Daughters was our choice for an opening dinner and we couldn’t have been more happy. From the exquisite food, beautiful wine pairings, to personalized keepsake menu, they made my first time hosting friends in a new city a great experience.

Wonderful from the moment you entered the front door.
Julianna greets you with a warm smile and a positive energy.
Amy , the sommellier , was very knowledgable and friendly. She took the time to go over her pairings with you.
Alex (Alec) the chef was a maestro with his staff. Everyone was on point and all the details were watched over.
As far as the food goes...the menu changes.
But on the night I was there every item was prepared to absolute perfection.
I have eaten at many fine restaurants and this one is definitely worth going out of your way for.

An evening of exquisite tastes. Every morsel was an adventure. Loved the combinations of texture, tastes, and visual presentation. The service was warm, informative, sophisticated, yet unpretentious. I felt I needed to take notes with every course and pairing description, but we were given the detailed menu of what we ate and drank afterward.

This was a fabulous three-hour treat on my birthday.
Can't recommend it any more highly.

Fantastic meal, we chose Sons and Daughters for a Michelin experience in San Fran. We were not disappointed. The staff took the time to indulge us in the exclusive tasting menu and the sommelier was exceptional. Thanks to the restaurant for an amazing evening. We will be back.

Pricey and not a lot of options due to prix fixed menu but most of the food was good and they were accommodating enough to substitute an entree when we preferred not to eat the sweet breads. Overall a pleasant and luxurious experience. The Duck confit was a bit salty for my taste otherwise dishes were great.

The Somm was phenomenal, the pairing was awesome and on point. The food however, left a lot to be desired. For the price that we paid over 800 for 2 people I walked away super disappointed at the food for a few reasons.
1) The fish dish was so bad I couldn't finish it
2) The main entree came with two slices of duck
Maybe I just eat a lot but I was hungry after. So much so that I went home and had ramen.

We have been going to Sons&Daughters since they opened. Now they are famous, and rightly so. There is no other option besides the chef picked menu unless one has allergies but each course is thoughtful and inventive without being weird. My only objection this time was too much salt in the trout dish but that is minor. This restaurant is every inch a champion.

I plan to write a lengthier review, but in a few words:

I have a creeping anxiety that not enough people know about Sons & Daughters, and that I might find it difficult to book a meal here in the future if more people find out about it.

Allow me to explain:

After my dining experience here, and it truly is an experience, I don’t understand why there is not more buzz about this restaurant, or more Michelin stars attached to it for that matter. Perhaps the best analogy for a meal here is a comparison to an authentic kaiseki meal in Japan. There is a level of attention to detail to each dish that it leaves no doubt of the chef’s intent when the dish was conceptualized. Each ingredient has its place, and everything works together to create a multifaceted sensory experience on the diner’s palate.

Now, to describe the food in that manner is actually unfair because it is a distilled and sterile description. However, there are times when you eat a meal at a Michelin starred restaurant and it almost feels like you are in the midst of a watching a surgeon perform a surgery. Everything is so refined, yet cold. A meal at Sons & Daughters is that level of detail and intent, with a sense of warmth and being welcomed.

If you are considering a special meal here, do not hesitate.

I feel like the food quality has gone down significantly from the last time I was there almost two years ago. I remember each dish being memorable previously and this time it was really salty and uneventful unfortunately. The service has gone down as well...several moments when the wine glass was low and no one around to pour and we also received someone else’s check. The restaurant wasn’t at capacity either.
