I came here to celebrate a birthday and wow the staff were extremely friendly and made the experience great! They gave out custom menus alongside chocolates at the end. I will definitely come to celebrate here again.

We celebrated our anniversary there with my husband. The staff was all aware it was our anniversary and made this a really special night. I have many dietary restrictions (no grains, dairy or soy) and the chefs managed to adapt the menu to my needs and still make every serving delicious and special for me! I highly recommend this restaurant with a great ambience, nice decoration but more importantly amazing food!

I loved almost everything that was in the tasting menu. The quail, which was one of the main dish, was a bit disappointing, and the panna cotta was so small I almost did not taste it, but the asparagus dish was so surprising and the bread was outstanding.

Whenever I go to San Francisco, I try to take time to enjoy this wonderful restaurant. The menu changes regularly, but the food is always magnificent. The best part is being able to share the experience with good friends. I highly recommend Sons and Daughters for your special occasions, as well as when you are looking for an amazing food experience.

Bon Appetit.

Such an amazing restaurant. They easily catered to our dietary restriction (vegetarian). The food was spectacular.Every.Single. Bite. The wine list is spot on. Ambiance is perfect. The only knock is that it is a bit over serviced. It felt like there was someone always around filling glasses, cleaning the table, replacing silverware (this is a not a complaint, it was just more than I had anticipated). I would recommend Son's and Daughter's to anyone celebrating a special occasion.

Tasting menu started off great but main course Lamb was very poor executed . Lamb was tough and hard to cut . For a Michelin star restaurant really unacceptable . Also no air conditioning inside, on a hot day very unpleasant . Service was top notch .

Prix fixe menu- outstanding -eight courses of mouth watering delights attended by a marvelous staff. Cava and amusé lit the runway for a well balanced pairings evening. The Halibut crudo amazed with unexpected apricot and excellent wine pairing from Scribe. The macvin Beurre has my jaw dropping with every bite. Flores ‘17 Popes Smoke matched and played nicely with the ramps. An unexpectedly inspiring evening finishing strong with hibachi grilled lamb. Delightful. Stand out spot.

I haven't had a food experience since like this since last I was in the French countryside at a Michelin Star restaurant. The serves was superb. They mostly got the balance of attentive and intrusive right. The serving staff were wonderful. The food was wonderful, It is a prefix menu and of the eight courses I did have my favorites, but really every course was a delight to the eye and the palate.

For some reason, this is another one of those places that loves to put two men in the corner, but I'm used to it now. I did NOT like the idea of not seeing a printed tasting menu in front of me, but I dealt with it. The menu is given at the end (go figure). The service was very good, but not excellent (slow at the end). The food was very good, but not excellent. If there was the traditional tasting menu presented up front with some choice and guidance of where we are going, that would help. The wine was excellent. I think they work very hard for the most part, but there were just a few hiccups. (My partner asked for another piece of their special toast; it took 15 minutes to get it.)

The service is top notch! Sons & Daughters contacted me to discuss the details of our upcoming reservation and did all they could to make it a memorable birthday celebration. They even accommodated my peanut allergy. I was very impressed with all the planning & communication that went into our evening.

Unfortunately, the food didn't measure up to the service. At first I thought it was just me...6 out of the 9 dishes were super salty. I overheard the table next us mention the salt as well and by the 3rd dish my friends agreed the salt was overpowering the flavour of the beautifully crafted dishes. I've never drank so much water at a dinner before!

I've been to a handful of Michelin Star restaurants but sadly this one seemed off. Perhaps an off night??

The food was the weakest link for this restaurant.
The reason we went there is because the menu looked amazing. Unfortunately - even tho we really love pork belly, lamb, crab and scallops - all of those dishes were between meh and horrible (the lamb was really chewy and tasted off)
Service was great and kind, but we came for the food.
