Traveling with a 5 & 10 yr old from Medford, OR TO DIsneyland in Anaheim, CA. First flight left at 6am and we had a layover in San Francisco and decided to have some breakfast to kill some time before the 2nd flight 3 hours later. We were seated immediately in the window which allowed the kids the opportunity to... More

Waiter was really nice and paid attention to me. Related to me personally making it feel like you are being looked after by a friend. The food came quick...although the egg whites were a bit runny. The food seemed like everywhere else (almost like boxed meals they all have on the shelf....exactly the same).

I had a bite at this place during a quick layover at SFO airport. I had the falafel wrap that comes with fries and was yummy! They have couple of other vegetarian options too.

Waiting for our United flight that was delayed by three hours, we stopped in to have some dinner. Bay shrimp cocktails were stuffed to the gills with shrimp. We split a Mediterranean plate of humus, olives, gerkins, cucumber, tomatoes, falafel, pita, dolmas, and a kale-quinoa salad. Everything was so fresh and delicious! Dark chocolate cake with a large glass of... More

The service was professional and the food is so yummy and served piping hot. I was hungry for something hot instead of grabbing the typical airport sandwich. I ordered a breakfast burrito and couldn't eat the entire thing. My spouse ordered the mission breakfast and was satisfied with the eggs and bacon. We both looked at each other and said... More

Service was slow but I wasn't in a hurry since I was waiting for a flight. I ordered a steak quesadilla but received a chicken quesadilla. With two glasses of wine, the bill was over $60.

Good place to get a sit down meal at SFO while waiting for a flight. Reliable food, good manhattan cocktail. A bit pricey but expect that for airport food.

Came in for the usual preflight food and beverage. Was busy on a Thursday afternoon. Found a spot at the bar. Very well staffed with excellent service. They didn't let an empty spot or dirty plate linger for more than a few seconds. Didn't feel rushed though which is nice...hate it when they want to turn the tables to the... More
