We arrived in town without a dinner reservation and walked by Wayfare Tavern as we were exploring. They were packed, with no tables available within the next 3 hours, but had comfortable seats at a counter with a view of the bustling kitchen. We settled...More

Tyler Florence's Wayfare Tavern is in San Francisco's financial district in the old Wells Fargo Bank building. It has been renovated to reflect the city's dining tastes in the 1800s, with both food and decor recalling that period. The number of choices on the dinner...More

First we were served dried out popovers. There was a pervasive smell of not very fresh fish throughout the restaurant. I had the overly salty fried chicken. Dinner mates had overlooked scallops and other poorly prepared dishes. Very slow service and one of those places...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s

life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
