When the rails of the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific were joined at Promontory Point, Utah, in the Spring of 1869, the dreams of many men were realized. Four such men were the Central Pacific’s “Big Four,” C. P. Huntington, Charles Crocker, Mark Hopkins and Leland Stanford. These men started from behind the counters of pioneer stores in Sacramento and, in less than two decades, shouldered their way to places of national importance. The careers of these four covered a long and colorful era of Pacific Coast history. These men became San Francisco’s most distinguished and talked about citizens. All resided in the most elegant, lavish and exquisite mansions, surrounding the present location of the Big 4 Restaurant at The Scarlet Huntington. The famous Big Four held center stage in San Francisco for more than a third of a century. During that entire period, there was hardly an issue of a Pacific Coast newspaper or magazine that did not contain reference to some phase of their varied activities. The Big 4 Restaurant recaptures the era when the famous Big Four reigned supreme from Nob Hill over all of San Francisco.

After visiting San Fran for many years, we finally remembered to make a dinner reservation at The Big 4 before arriving in town. The restaurant is so named for the four industrialists who were responsible for SF's early growth and success. Many photos and artifacts are on display much like a museum. The decor is gorgeous wood paneled walls, large antique mirrors, burgandy velvet banquettes, candle light, fine linens and restaurant silver, impeccably mannered staff attend almost invisibly while making guests feel like royals. The menu is heavily weighted towards aged, prime steak and chops. Sides are family style, order several. Desserts are decadent. Enjoy live piano music, and arrive early to spend time in the bar before dinner for a full Big 4 experience. We can't wait to return for another luxurious experience in this gorgeous building.

A true San Francisco classic. Elegant, great service-that is old-school, lovely ambiance and an excellent menu. This is not the restaurant you whip out your iPhone to take pictures of the food. As famous for their brunch as their lunch and their dinner menu. Once, along time ago, my date was not allowed in because he didn't have a tie ... The dress code has changed.
