I had a noon flight out of SFO and decided to grab some food to go (to eat on the plane in a few hours). Since I like to eat no-carb, I ordered a chicken cobb salad figuring it would be soggy in a few hours but a better option than other items. I was pleasantly surprised that the salad was delicious and not soggy. The dressing and salad contents were flavorful even hours later. I did have to wait what seemed like a long time to get the salad but the kitchen staff was working really hard/fast to keep up with all the to-go and dine-in orders. Overall, I would eat here again when back in SFO.

Several hours of waiting due to bad weather flight delays meant searching for a reasonable place to get something to eat in the International terminal at SFO. Although you can get a variety of foods in plastic containers (presumably for eating in flight purposes), we wanted a place to sit down and eat something more substantial. There really aren't a lot of quality options in the terminal.
Although the menu in the restaurant had an adequate selection of items, with the exception of soup or a salad, there was no gluten free choices and both of those items were served with large chunks of sourdough bread. Being past security checks meant plastic utensils and those utensils given with the meal were really of a very inferior quality. In addition, you had to go to the bar to order and pay. To have a tea or coffee, it meant going to the bar to order and pay and then going to the coffee counter to get your beverage, and finally taking it personally to your table. Basically this is a bar and food and service are an after thought. The prices were outlandishly high for the lack of service, amenities, and quality of food. Only if you are desperate do I suggest you go here!

I am surprised this place has such a low score. Compared to the typical airport restaurants this is a really good one. If you have to eat at SFO go there

I was quite surprised to fine such a nice Bar/Restaurant in the International Terminal at SFO. The burger was really good and the french fries were okay. Very pleasant atmosphere and staff made it all the better. And, there was table service. When at an airport again, I'll seek out this restaurant group.
