Nice presentation but no dish was really impressive. Me and my wife both got diarrhea after eating here (I don’t think they have problem with hygiene though, more likely the food here do not play well with our Asian stomachs)

I was really disappointed with this place. I've been to a couple of Michelin places in the UK and I was really looking forward to this dinner but everything was just average food.
We took the 9-courses with wine pairing and the extra wine pairing and is was just so plain.
The courses were ok, the wines were paired badly. I'm not that super with wines but my friend is a sommelier and he was amazed about the weird choices of wines.
Maybe they just had a bad day in the kitchen so please don't judge the place on my review alone but I'm not going back to try again and unfortunately it will take a while until I spend over $400 on an average meal.
Staff is friendly and restaurant is cozy so too bad the food didn't live up to expectations.

While all modern American restos preach local & seasonal, S&D does this in a league of its own, and in a tiny kitchen! Tasting menu is top notch as are wine selection and service. Deservedly 1*.

One of my favorite tasting experiences to date. Up there with French Laundry. The bread trio is fantastic. The service is attentive, knowledgeable and really cares about your experience. A couple of people in our party were Vegans and they curated a similar Vegan experience for them. They were very impressed. The best dish for me was the seared suckling pig on top of Santa Cruz mountain heirloom beans. The beans were the highlight. The abalone was also a highlight dish. We enjoyed the dessert array, especially the key limequat ice cream. The fluffy blue cheese cheesecake was also delicious. Only a small deduction on the Cab selection however the sommelier was quite knowledgeable and paired a bottle to our tastes which we enjoyed.

I don't even know where to begin with Sons & Daughters!
Firstly, well before we even dined, Julianna made this experience to be so memorable. This was the restaurant we chose to dine at after we got married at City Hall, and my word were we glad we chose this establishment. The moment we arrived, we were greeted with such warmth from not only Julianna, but the entire team. We were given the best table is the restaurant and presented with two glasses of champagne instantly. The food (every course), was so memorable and delicious that it is hard to chose a favourite. The wines that were paired with the dishes were exceptional on every level too. Julianna went to so much trouble to make sure our night was memorable, and my word did she exceed our expectations. Ps She even created a playlist for us, which was perfect. I am not sure when we will be back in San Francisco, but I do know that Sons and Daughters will be high on our list and I strongly recommend that you guys do the same. Simply put, perfect in every way!
