Most courses were wonderful. A couple of them were overly salty however, which was a big surprise to us. This was my second visit, and the first time I was “wowed” by every bite. Not so this time. It was good, but not spectacular or especially notable , sadly.

The experience was amazing from start to finish. The staff is so warm when they greet you, I felt like I was walking into a dinner with friend and they make you feel comfortable and welcome the whole time. The menu is delicious. They have some super unique dishes right now and I most enjoyed the venison and squash dish. Finally the take away gift at the end — fun flavored chocolates was such a special touch.

We enjoyed the beautiful presentation of the food but were disappointed with the execution and flavours- the wines also were not what we would have expected for a Michelin star restaurant

Impeccable food and service. The food and wine paring was brilliant and the bread, like nothing I've ever tasted. Every morsel was amazing. Saving up to go back again.

excellent service and exceptional and creative food. Petite works of art of every plate. The salmon and quail mains were our favourite dishes. Personalised menus and chocolates to take away at the end of the evening was a much valued touch. We would recommend Sons and Daughters to friends!! Thank you

Special attention throughout the meal, tantalizing descriptions for each course from a variety of servers and the sommelier, great textures, colors and flavors. Decided to go with the extras and were glad we did!

Juliana and all the staff were great throughout the night! Food was scrumptious except the last coconut financier. I was already super enthused to end the meal on that amazing Peaches and Cream dessert! The oolong tea was way too intense. It was a dim sum like tea, not the usual light and flowery kind that would have paired better with the whole evening!

This was great. Accept the fact that it’s expensive and just go all in. Do the wine pairing. It is really fun and I learned so much about types of wine and why they pair with what flavors...and the flavors are amazing. Every aspect of your palette will be activated! Amazing. There is no menu. Food just keeps arriving. You don’t have one waiter. The whole staff takes turns serving you. It’s fun!

I'm not sure where to start with the list of phenomenal aspects of our evening at Sons & Daughters! My wife and I have visited a few times over the past 2-3 years and I should have been writing these reviews as the experiences are nothing short of amazing. Julianna is both personable and knowledgeable. We wanted to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and what better place to do it than with S&D. We had some close friends in town from DC and Julianna not only offered us the private dining room, but the extra touches of knowing my wife and I loved the toast/bread so much they gave us extra to take home. The food is exquisite, well thought out wine pairings and great information on all aspects of each course. I cannot recommend this place enough!

The food combinations were incredibly creative, the wine pairings really different and worked very well. Nothing about the meal was ordinary - we learned a lot about the food and wine. I wish my mind was as creative as the chefs.

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.
