I have been fortunate to dine all over the world and to experience many amazing meals. This was easily a top 5 experience and may be the best overall meal/wine pairing I have ever enjoyed! Sons and Daughters is a must!

3rd time visiting. And it always delivers. One of the best meals in SF period. Ambience is very casual and relaxing and the food is fantastic. Not an inexpensive night out but usually 6 out of 8 courses are a home run. As it was again this time. Deliciousness. Innovative. A great 3 hours.

The service was faultless, the food was incredible, and presentation was lovely. The only a few things that were off. The dessert of goat cheese tart was a disappointment after the delicious palate cleanser. The final taste in the mouth was a bite of straight goat cheese. Second, the wine pairing did not elevate the meal and instead were at odds with each other. At times, the paired wine complemented the dish, and at other times it overpowered or did not relate. Other than those 2 things, my date and I agree this was the best dining experience we’ve ever had. Thank you for a great night!

The food and service are really amazing. It's a splurge, but well worth it. The 5-spice squab was especially tasty. And the wine pairing option is worth it too.

A place for an amazing culinary experience. A fantastic and imaginative selection of wines sets the taste-guardrails for an evening of delights served with precision and friendliness. We enjoyed talking to the waitstaff, learning about the food being served, and the accompanying drink. It was a night I look forward to repeating.

Our second visit which we were anticipating highly since our first time was wonderful.
This time we brought a friend who was thoroughly disappointed and said she would never return.
Several of the courses were very disappointing in flavors and textures; especially the salmon (mushy) and the squab (crunchy, bony). Our friend wound up picking up the check (not our intention) and she felt it was enormously over priced. She dines at the finest restaurants in San Francisco as well as all over the world. I felt badly that we suggested Sons & Daughters to her.
But DO want to comment that the staff was WONDERFUL; especially Julianna who couldn't have been more accommodating, sweet, helpful.

We celebrated our anniversary there with my husband. The staff was all aware it was our anniversary and made this a really special night. I have many dietary restrictions (no grains, dairy or soy) and the chefs managed to adapt the menu to my needs and still make every serving delicious and special for me! I highly recommend this restaurant with a great ambience, nice decoration but more importantly amazing food!

I loved almost everything that was in the tasting menu. The quail, which was one of the main dish, was a bit disappointing, and the panna cotta was so small I almost did not taste it, but the asparagus dish was so surprising and the bread was outstanding.

Whenever I go to San Francisco, I try to take time to enjoy this wonderful restaurant. The menu changes regularly, but the food is always magnificent. The best part is being able to share the experience with good friends. I highly recommend Sons and Daughters for your special occasions, as well as when you are looking for an amazing food experience.

Bon Appetit.

Such an amazing restaurant. They easily catered to our dietary restriction (vegetarian). The food was spectacular.Every.Single. Bite. The wine list is spot on. Ambiance is perfect. The only knock is that it is a bit over serviced. It felt like there was someone always around filling glasses, cleaning the table, replacing silverware (this is a not a complaint, it was just more than I had anticipated). I would recommend Son's and Daughter's to anyone celebrating a special occasion.

Prix fixe menu- outstanding -eight courses of mouth watering delights attended by a marvelous staff. Cava and amusé lit the runway for a well balanced pairings evening. The Halibut crudo amazed with unexpected apricot and excellent wine pairing from Scribe. The macvin Beurre has my jaw dropping with every bite. Flores ‘17 Popes Smoke matched and played nicely with the ramps. An unexpectedly inspiring evening finishing strong with hibachi grilled lamb. Delightful. Stand out spot.

I haven't had a food experience since like this since last I was in the French countryside at a Michelin Star restaurant. The serves was superb. They mostly got the balance of attentive and intrusive right. The serving staff were wonderful. The food was wonderful, It is a prefix menu and of the eight courses I did have my favorites, but really every course was a delight to the eye and the palate.
