The menu, selection and personalised service as well as the decor and ambience of this lounge were such a delight. We were referred to this lounge as BC passengers on Fiji Airways. What a treat! TIP: The food and refreshments here are far better than...More

A lot nicer than Heathrow. Nice and quiet with great service, we had the champagne with salad and the chicken wing very nice, plenty of chargers for electric devices, overall a lovely clubhouse.

This is one of the best I've been in as virgin normally share and they haven't got one in Manchester so it makes a good change. The burger as other people state is a must try.

Decent lounge. The welcoming was a bit messy, as the reception itself. Kitchen closed as it was late, so no food offer. Coktails average, staff a bit too familiar, shower not clean and ameneties poor. Up to the American standards, poor if you've ever travelled...More

I've been to most of the lounges in SFO and I think for sheer comfort, service, and selection, the VA Clubhouse is the best. They have a nice made-to-order food menu and the food is actually good, full bar, comfortable seats with good configurations for...More

The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at SFO is hands down the best departure lounge there is at SFO. I've been many times -- it's never too crowded, the staff are extremely personable and attentive, and the ambiance is relaxing. I would arrive at the airport several...More

This is a nice lounge with good food (although we only had tea and pastries) but as others have noted being located outside of the TSA is a negative since you never know how long it will take to get through TSA to board. I...More

As you would expect from Virgin Atlantic, excellent service and enjoyable lounge. Food and drink was really good too. However, I personally found it hard to relax as the lounge is located BEFORE security, which means it was hard to work out how much time...More

A difficult journey for the family. Manager of lounge used discretion and helped make our journey easier. Food was good as was service especially given they were struggling due to staff absence.

My favorite lounge at sfo. Incredible whiskey bar and made to order gourmet delights. Impeccable service. Only downer is its outside security.

It's not open all the time, it only opens to cover upper class for a few specific flights. We were really early and had to wait for it to open, which I think was the same time the check in desks open. An American guy... More
