 (San Francisco)·Dined on January 7, 2018

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.

We were here years ago for a b day. Tonight was weak. Over 700- for a very mediocre meal. We came back because we enjoyed it. Not at all a good meal. Over salted and at times cold dishes that shouldn’t have been. We were at The Progress the night before. 1/2 the price and 4X the experience. Saison looks like a bargain! Quality is way way low. Skip this place.

The evening was great. A charming local, small spot on Bush St in SF. We were greeted at the door by name. The staff was as fantastic as was the food. We enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return.

I had previously shared my dietary restrictions for both myself and my friend which were both ignored. I expect better from a Michelin Star Restaurant. The food that we could eat was quite good. Dessert was a miss, sweet potatoes shouldn’t be used in dessert.

The best thing about the restaurant was the sommelier. She was knowledgeable, creative, and very personable. The food was just OK. Ideas were good but execution was a bit heavy handed even though it looked great. The tab was way too high. I've been to higher priced prix fix restaurants but one needs to feel you get what you pay for and they fell short.

Very impressed. The service was excellent, the atmosphere quiet and cozy and the food was so artistic, creative and delicious. Two out of four of us.are vegan/plant based and we were so impressed with each and every dish we were served. It was fun being able to compare the vegan and the non-vegan dishes. Thank you so much for such a memorable evening!

From the caviar & champagne to the chocolate Grenache & all 9 courses in between these two, each dish was truly unique in presentation & taste. It was definitely one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had. And I cannot say enough about how great the staff is. They were very professional , knowledgeable & friendly. Will always be a go to restaurant when I'm in San Francisco!

Came here for my Wife and I's anniversary and Sons and Daughters did not disappoint. The food was excellent - the ingredients were fresh, the combinations of flavors was fun and exciting, the pairings with the wine were on point, and the portions were perfect - when we left we weren't overly full but also not hungry. Everyone who helped serve us from our server, the sommelier, and other staff who helped bring out cutlery, fill water, etc... were all very friendly. The atmosphere was fancy, but also warm and friendly which was a great combination. My wife wanted to make sure I mentioned the chairs were also very comfortable. The price seemed fair for the experience. Definitely not something we would do more than once a year or so, but a great time for a special occasion. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend. Thanks Sons and Daughters!

Small plates were amazing. Wine was fantastic ( Kudos to an amazing sommelier). However, the Trout was mediocre. Skin was not crispy enough and raisins were overpowering the fish. It felt as if they just substituted trout for something like gamey to make it a pescatarian dish. Expected more from this level. For the money, every course should have been mind blowing. Great place, but needs improvement if aiming for that second star.

Contrary to other reviews, we had no issues with overly salty food. Everything was prepared to perfection for a fantastic experience. The Sommelier was perhaps the highlight of the evening - she was knowledgeable, responsive, and clearly cared for her craft. Very willing to have a conversation about the wines she was pouring. Pricing is perhaps not quite on-point for value, but regardless all five of us had an excellent evening.

Wonderful meal. We have had other tasting menus that become overwhelming as the meal continues. This was never overwhelming. The portions are just the right size, and the balance perfect. It reminded us of some great meals we had in Japan - - great variety in texture, taste and smells. We loved it all, and were constantly surprised in a good way with unusual pairings. Service is warm and responsive. Excellent experience.

We had our 10 year anniversary dinner at Sons and Daughters. It was a fabulous experience. The nine course tasting menu was fresh and brilliantly assembled. Some of the things the chef combined you would never think to combine - but they were wonderful. Every single bite was a joy. The bread courses in-between were amazing as well. This place is very small, with only around 28 seats. It's not cheap by any stretch - but worth it for a special occasion.

There were 4 things on the menu I normally wouldn't like: raw oysters, bell peppers, melon & eggplant. Each of these came prepared in separate entrees (not together in one dish) and it was so good! I was totally shocked at how much I enjoyed them. It was an excellent dinner.
