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.

Classic. Dim lighting, fantastic cocktails, impressive wine list, delicious hors d'oeuvres and perfectly cooked filet mignon. One of my favorite steakhouses. Foursquare - September 2017

Used to dine here before the hotel changed hands. The last visit here a few nights ago confirmed my worst fears. The service is nowhere near what it used to be. It seemed very fake to me, as though the place was trying hard (failingly) to cling to what it was. Menu desperately needs an update. Sad. GooglePlace - June 2017

If you can get Ron for your waiter you will be in for an amazing night of San Francisco history. His depth of knowledge is amazing. Foursquare - March 2017
