The food was quite good, although not exceptional. I thought the dining room decor where I was seated was rather spare

My server, Michaela, was a doll and really made the evening!

The only time they had available tables was at 9pm. They then proceeded to sit us right by the door with our backs against their storefront glass window. I asked if we could sit in a different section or upstairs, and they refused...but they then sat down a couple that walked in later in the backroom.

Additionally, the booster mandate was such a burdensome ask and stressed us out. I recently had COVID so I hadn't had the chance to get the booster and was stressing out the whole week trying to find a booster before dining.

An old favorite of mine and my wife’s. Outdoor seating was available and with the noisy Market street traffic we felt like we were eating in a sidewalk café in Paris. We enjoyed Zuni’s famous chicken for two which we have tried to replicate at home using their cookbook recipe. Ours is good but theirs is the gold standard. Cocktails, wine Caesar salad and dessert all keep Zuni among our top tier favorite SF restaurants.

the waiter was very nice, but it took an hour from when we were seated until we got the main course. The 25 % surcharge was a surprise. at least it was pointed out in Lew of a tip.

Good service. Food well prepared, with good presentation. More than ample wine list with an experienced sommelier. Overall a very good experience. Note: the menu and wine list do have some expensive items, but it's flexible enough so that one can also enjoy a moderately priced meal .

Very nice lunch at Zunni during a time I would be otherwise reluctant to eat indoors. They closely check vaccination cards and identification, and the tables are generously spaced - preventing much of the 'should-I-be-eating-indoors' anxiety common to the moment. As always, the menu offerings are thoughtful and the wine selection is amazing. The service is friendly and unobtrusive. Most importantly the food is great, very well-prepared and artfully presented.

As always even in the most difficult times it is Spectacular. We live on the East Coast and have only been fortunate enough to dine about 10 to 12 times but it is always our first stop. We have at least 1 lunch (just to get the burger) and usually dinner twice.

It’s one of the finest places we have ever been anywhere in the world. The drinks are fabulous and all servers are knowledgeable and very friendly,

Also, one of the finest cookbooks ever written.

Zuni is a must-visit spot whenever I’m in San Francisco. It’s just a really special place, and they’re always willing to accommodate my vegetarianism/help me navigate the ever-changing (yet always delicious) menu.
