We weren’t greeted by a waiter until 20-30 min after being seated. Then had surly and untimely service. Hoping it was just an off day for the waiter and not their normal mode of operation.

In the past, it was on par with my expectations. This time around, I was very disappointed. Things have changed for the worse since they reopened from the pandemic closing. It seems they have moved toward a strategy of charging more but providing less. I've been ordering the NM Chicken Salad for years and it was always something I looked forward to. It came on a lunch-sized plate with about half an avocado sliced on the side along with a generous number of sliced strawberries, kiwi and blueberries. It's been unchanged for decades. Now, all of a sudden, for $26 the NM Chicken salad is served on a saucer-sized oblong dish, with 6-8 blueberries, a single raspberry and that's about it... and lots of fluffy lettuce to disguise the fact that the avocado and generous fruit allotment have been removed. It's not even a lunch-sized entree anymore - it's a tiny little side plate type thing. Further, rather than stemmed glasses for the iced tea with a large volume of liquid, the new tactic seems to be smaller non-stemmed glasses that hold a smaller amount of liquid and a refill charge instead of the free refills of the past. The menu of entrees has shrunk to half a page instead of the 3 pages of items the restaurant used to offer. It just seems they've reduced the quantity of items offered severely, reduced the quality and reduced the portion sizes but kept the prices unchanged or increased them. To me, price was not something I was concerned with, however the portion sizes are so small that a NM Chicken salad is no longer even an entree-sized option in its new format. Very disappointed that after decades of predictability and dependability, the new leadership at the Rotunda is cheapening it down to a typical inner-store department store restaurant like the ones next door at Macy's like The Cheesecake factory, etc. and no longer the SF icon we've known as the Rotunda for decades.

The smoked salmon with caviar was outstanding. Chef Josh came out to greet us and Kathrine was excellent at service. Time to turn on the air conditioning possibly but otherwise perfect.

The place is obviously as beautiful as the google pictures show and I can definitely see why it is such a popular place for afternoon tea/meal. I had just come from the airport, a complete mess and carrying all my luggage but the staff were extremely nice and did not make me feel out of place at all! My waiter was very attentive and brought out my drink/food very quickly. He was even kind enough to take a picture for me as I was dining alone. I got the tuna tartare and lemonade and the portions were actually a good amount for the price. I highly recommend this place to those looking for a nice place to dine with friends or alone!

But it was disappointing that other tables got their tea sets 10 min before we did, even though they sat down 10 min after us. The food was fine but I wish the cakes tasted better, and I wish they didn't have a random chocolate chip cookie - it didn't feel very high class.

Food is good, but I think the tea sandwiches could be better, especially for the price. The room gets HOT though, it was hard for our group to really drink the tea, and it was a cool day in the city.

Requested a window seat but yet again was placed by the huge column that obstructed the view. Food was as expected nothing wow but good. Service was nice. Again no view regardless of requesting it but not getting it

We dressed up only to leave as soon as our food came. The bitter, watered down bloody Mary was bitter. It came with an olive, a slice of pick, a hot pepper, and a pearl onion. Point being, no bacon, or even celery? But worse was something called baked goat cheese. Instead this came in a sweet, crusted tart shell, it was so gross, I literally gagged. It tasted like that chaky medicine you drink when you have heartburn. We left. They comped the thing I didn't eat. No apology for starting my birthday wrong. Whatever.

The restaurant was filled and everyone looked happy. Service was informative, attentive and courteous. I have not had a bad experience with the Rotunda. The tea service was beautifully done. We enjoyed the ham sandwich, the curry cornish hen in a croissant. The scone was just ok. The tarts and profiteroles were good. Rotunda tea service is a nice way to spend time with friends.

I love that every time I visit San Francisco I can just make a quick reservation at the rotunda and enjoy my favorite meal which is the walnut pesto pasta, truffle fries and the infamous popovers with the strawberry Butter.

Went for the afternoon tea service and it's a great experience to feel a little fancy Only one minor issue was the servers took our plates which we had left half of each treat on so we could take home before we could realize they had, so didn't get to take home all our leftover treats! They were just trying to be good servers though, overall they were great
