Chef Tyler Florence brings his passion for high quality and style to San Francisco with his new flagship restaurant, Wayfare Tavern. A classic San Francisco Tavern featuring authentic American dishes inspired by local cuisine at the turn of the 20th century, the menu ranges from classic comforts to rustic delicacies. The beverage menu features locally-sourced wines including a selection of Florence's own label, quality draft beers and organic root beer as well as classic Victorian-era cocktails.

All three floors of the restaurant have been designed keeping historical accuracy in mind making Wayfare Tavern reminiscent of a Victorian parlor and an Edwardian men's club, where anything goes from black-tie to blue jeans. Pull up a stool to the Chef's Counter at the open kitchen and look on as Chef prepares your lunch or head to the Library and Billiard Room for a game of pool. Wayfare Tavern is a truly unparalleled dining experience translated from a century ago. Photo: John Lee.

The fried chicken was really good. I would order it again and again, but the brussel sprouts were a little bit on the salty side. Will definitely go back for the fried chicken.

My wife & I each had the fried chicken which was great & there was plenty to take home. For dessert we had the wonderful donuts.

Always enjoy a dinner at Wayfarer Tavern. The rolls before entree are so good! Fried chicken and Mac and cheese are our favorites.

We come to the city everybyear to celebrate our anniversary. This wa our 24th and we decided to go to the Tavern. The bartender was fantastic, informative, and made us feel like no else was there, but it was hopping. All his suggestions we tried, beef tartare, braised short ribs, salmon. All fantastic!
I ordered a glass of wine and was greatly disappointed...it was 4oz. That is a joke for such a great place. Short pours only service one person or one side, the owner/restaurant. A 5-6 oz pour is tolerable, but 4oz. Disappointing. I sent it back and after that I could feel the lack of service from there. Marcus was good, but did not check on us after that but passed by us every 2-3min.
Aside from that, now I know and I will be back for the great bar experience and stick to beer or cocktails. Thank you.

As always the food and the service was excellent. I want to give a special thanks to the restaurant, as I was able to sit side-by-side with my companion that has hearing in only one ear. The restaurant is always busy and this allowed us to have a nice conversation even though the noise level is quite loud. Thank you so much

Really great California/American inspired menu. Everything from fried chicken to steak tartare. It does get pretty loud, so fine for a one on one business lunch, but if you need to make a presentation, I would recommend going somewhere quieter as even the private room gets quite noisy. The waiters are accommodating without being overbearing and when you sit down, you get complimentary popovers!

Reasonably what it should be, but way too loud for easy conversation.
