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.

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

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

The food was overall good, especially the fried chicken, but overpriced, especially considering that they serve no sides with the entrees unless they are ordered separately. Sides were not great. The whipped potatos were more like potato soup. Still, it’s a nice bar and grill and a good, but pricey, choice for lunch.

The service at this place has been consistently poor the few times I've gone. We had a reservation for lunch but still ended up waiting for almost half an hour to be sat. THe server brought me my entree but told me that it was supposed to be given to another table so he took the plate off my table and gave it to another table which is something I've never experienced.

This is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco! We drive over 60 miles to eat there. Doesn’t hurt that Chef Tyler is my favorite Chef, I just wish he would put on the menu his braised short rib recipe.

Will be back again soon.

We were seated in an awkward corner by the stairwells and we didn’t get our menu until 12 min after seating. Thenafter, it took 10 min before our server took our order. The whole lunch process was about 2 hours long and this was on MLK Day, with plenty of seating. Questioning what there service would be like on a normal busier day.
