Went for a lunch with my husband. Chicken broth was fragran, popover hot out of oven, lobster roll delicious, and my husband he pt coming for my chicken Milanese. Everything served is delicious! Servers were attentive but not too over whelming and the ambiance great for a relaxing stop after the shopping. Highly recommended!

My mom and I have been going to the Rotunda for every birthday and special occasion since I was little (I’m 26 now). This time we went to celebrate a raise/promotion I received at work. Always yummy whether we go for lunch or tea and it’s always beautiful to look at!

I love the view, vibe and location of The Rotunda. We had salmon dish and pasta dish. Both were just okay, and nothing outstanding. I would still use this place to impress guests from out of town, most likely.

We always have a wonderful experience dining here. The bread they bring around is phenomenal and the spread that comes with the bread is delicious!! The restaurant has a beautiful view out into Union Square. The natural lighting brightens up the room, making it even more beautiful and welcoming. The service and food never disappoints. We went during our anniversary and they gave us some cookies and recipe to the cookies upon our departure. The cookies were DELICIOUS!! Thanks for having us!

While the ambience is always the absolute BEST, I feel the food quality has gone downhill from prior visits. We had the lobster club on a previous occasion and I remember it as a big hearty sandwich , filled with chunks of lobster, now it’s like a shredded “lobster salad”. Needless to say the food was disappointing 🙁

The lobster club was not good as before. The bread was so cold and hard and the bacon also too hard to chew.

We had a reservation for 1:45 but got there earlier. The gentleman at the front said he would do what he could to accommodate getting us in sooner. He did and we loved our lunch!

A good spot to meet in the 'Shopping Area' of San Francisco/Union Square. The food was good and the service knowledgeable and reliable. Reception was particularly organized and efficient.
A good overall business experience.

Always love dining at the Rotunda. This time the service and kitchen seemed very slow. Food is always good especially the lobster options. Really fun at Christmas with the giant tree decor.

This was the best way to spend Valentine's Day ever - we went for tea. The Rotunda was, as always, calm, elegant and refined. The tea service was really perfect - the sandwiches were delicious, the sweets very very good - with heart shaped shortbread cookies to celebrate the occasion. The service was gracious, attentive and smart. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. The perfect place to go for tea, perfectly delicious !

Used to enjoy the afternoon tea service more. Don't know if It'S because we went on Valentine's day the menu is different. But it wasn't really worth it this time. The service wasn't very good either. We never got a refill on the tea and crumbs left all over esp from the back of the menu also. Decor is awesome per usual. My parents went with us and ordered from the lunch menu, which is much better and worth the value. I would still come back because I've had better tea service before and service so the potential hopefully is still there. I'd go back one more time to give that another try. Will update with review next time!
