A great way to celebrate our get together after the long SIP and temporary closure. The food was superb - bowl of lobster bisque with truffle fries and a nice chicken salad.

Service was a bit slow but our server was very nice and explained the staff shortages. He was very nice and accommodating. The tea service a bit different from prior visits pre pandemic. The sandwiches are new and very filling I liked the newer versions less fancy but better tasting. Little details like doilies on the plates were left out. Overall we will be back. Our table was close to the server entry and exit so next time I will assure we don’t sit there it’s a bit too busy for me.

Lovely, elegant spot for lunch on a summertime day. The blackberry cosmo was lovely. I noted it was a birthday on my reservation, and they brought a desert without my having to ask. Of course it’s a little pricey, this is SF. But the complimentary sipping broth and popover with your lunch make it worthwhile.

We were seated next to the window. All waiters were wearing masks. Social distancing protocols are good. No one was seated at the table next to us until the very end of our meal.

Service was friendly and prompt, and the food was excellent. We started off with the complimentary broth and popovers with strawberry butter. Ordered a nice bottle of Etoile rosé bubbles. Enjoyed the truffle fries, lobster blt, crab melt, and a salad. Get there early for the lobster blt as our waiter told us that they are currently only preparing 30 each day.Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared and presented.

Reservations recommended- I made mine 5 weeks ahead for 11:00.

Went for a date lunch, and it was delightful…the service was warm, professional and not overly attentive.
We shared a crab and shrimp Louie, and that combined with the popovers and broth, both complimentary, and an order of their signature cookies and really good americanos was the perfect midday meal! Our waitress and bus-lady were charm itself!

Having this San Francisco jewel reopen was such a joy. We had an incredible meal with impeccable service. Our waiter who has been at this establishment since 1999 treated us like we were old friends and made us feel so special. The Lobster Bisque is one of the most amazing dishes in a city that boast great food. I highly recommend you take the time to enjoy the food here as well as the ambiance and service.

The Rotunda must have opened too soon as the popovers were under done. The presentation of the salads were just ok. There was very little crabmeat and prawns on the crab and shrimp louie.

So happy to have the Rotunda open again. Special place. Took 17 yr old granddaughter for birthday lunch as she has never been. Service good, a little long between soup & entree but ok. Popovers always wonderful. She was delighted. They brought chocolate chip mini cookie with candle for birthday. No real dessert menu. All they served was panna cotta. No other choices? SF is having difficult time coming to life again.

San Francisco had one of the most stringent lockdowns, so it was nice to be able to finally get out and enjoy a classy restaurant. The Rotunda is always a great place to go. The food was excellent. My table had crab sandwiches, Spice Tea, Lemonade and Dessert. Our server was very attentive and friendly.
