Chef Tyler Florence brings his passion for high quality and style to San Francisco with his new flagship restaurant, Wayfare Tavern. A classic San Francisco Tavern featuring authentic American dishes inspired by local cuisine at the turn of the 20th century, the menu ranges from classic comforts to rustic delicacies. The beverage menu features locally-sourced wines including a selection of Florence's own label, quality draft beers and organic root beer as well as classic Victorian-era cocktails.

All three floors of the restaurant have been designed keeping historical accuracy in mind making Wayfare Tavern reminiscent of a Victorian parlor and an Edwardian men's club, where anything goes from black-tie to blue jeans. Pull up a stool to the Chef's Counter at the open kitchen and look on as Chef prepares your lunch or head to the Library and Billiard Room for a game of pool. Wayfare Tavern is a truly unparalleled dining experience translated from a century ago. Photo: John Lee.

We loved our late lunch at Wayfarer. Tyler Florence has done a beautiful job with the quality of the food and the ambiance. Our service was so-so but that is sometimes too be expected with the late lunch crew. One suggestion that all four of us agreed upon. The menu is VERY limited. I like a small menu but Wayfarers is too small. Mr. Florence and his chefs need to add a few more items - possibly a steak fritte?

BTW, the chicken is outrageously good and I never eat fried chicken 😄

·Dined 5 days ago

World class fried chicken. Was genuinely surprised and pleased at how wonderful it was considering all of the hype. It certainly lived up to that hype (Bon Appetit's list of best fried chicken in the USA). Terrific popovers too, which is a nice touch as they are gratis. Very cool space, genuine character and real atmosphere. Upscale but comfortable and not corporate either.

I found the pricing to be on the high side, the portions aside from the large portion of fried chicken to be on the smaller side - our friends split the steak and it was tiny to begin with as was the halibut and the mediocre burrata mashed potatoes. The $5 split charge for sharing the chicken is flat out obnoxious (5 pieces of fried chicken for one person is a bit too much for one person to eat) as is the penalty for cancelling reservations (we had a party of 6) - you must cancel 48 hours ahead of time or pay a fee through OpenTable which required a credit card to secure the reservation. We didn't cancel, it's just the principle of it that bothers me.

I liked the place, and might go back so don't get me wrong, but their value proposition including the aggressively higher prices and seemingly adversarial attitude towards their guests (not via the servers where were gracious) communicated through the above policies to be a bit of a turn off.

Generally excellent food (with prices to match), hampered a bit by uneven service (great water refills, inconsistent server attention). Unless you're in a private room, talking to people across your table (next to you is ok) can be challenging.

·Dined on August 14, 2016

Our overall experience at this restaurant was a big disappointment. Out of the four of us, I was the only one who had been here before and remembered a much better experience and food quality. Although our waiter was very nice, the service was awful - it took at least 10-15 for him to come to our table, he wanted to take our entire order at once and when we said we wanted to just start with a bottle of wine and drinks, we didn't see him again for at least another 20 minutes. The wine was never re-poured and our drinks never replenished. The food was fine, but not what you hope for in a restaurant with Wayfare's reputation. The deviled eggs were good but not great. The fried chicken was good but no where close to being "the best in America" as the menu said. The piece of halibut was delicious but the preparation and the accompaniments were tasteless. The leek was hardly discernible, there were maybe 4 tiny green & yellow beans (couldn't they spare more for $32), and the other garnishes were as I said, tasteless. The macaroni & cheese was just okay, the whipped potatoes were runny and you could not taste the burrata. The chard was very good. Then, the dessert, which I was very excited about since Coconut cake is my favorite, tasted like it came from a medium level grocery store and had been in the refrigerator all day. The frosting even tasted stale. I'm not sure how you even achieve that. And, all for the low price of $330. We go to restaurants like this to experience high-quality food, with creative preparations and good service that will enable a fun and memorable evening. Unfortunately, we will probably not be back. On a positive note the donuts were good.

The restaurant did not have our reservation from Open Table, but accommodated none the less. Food and service were wonderful and unobtrusive. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch catching up with family events. We tried the fried chicken, which is a house specialty and it lived up to the reputation. We also had the specials, a salmon dish and deviled eggs. The Burratta was good, as was the corn soup. We requested several dishes and ate the family style. The servers arranged for the appropriate coursing to accommodate our request.

I'm a big fan of TF, and yet was underwhelmed at lunch. The food, while tasty, was average, and expensive. We started with the buratta topped with peach, which was stellar…moist creamy rich cheese with thin ham and a smear of hazelnut butter.

I tried the must have fried chicken and it was lovely moist, yet could've been more robust with seasoning. It came with 3 whole mostly raw cloves of garlic, and nothing...just chicken.

My pals had the salmon special with swiss chard, and the other gnocchi with squash...both were tasty but such small portions...just didn't add up.

We also had the sautéed mushrooms as a side….have you ever fried a hot dog in a pan? That’s what these mushrooms tasted like, no kidding.

So who’s minding the stove these days? $148. lunch for 4 people and no beverages. Wow.

·Dined on August 8, 2016

We were glad to have booked a last minute Open Table reservation as it let us step ahead of the walk-ins and the place is small so seating a bit limited. The food portions are oversized and we ended up over-ordering, as each item is listed as a stand alone, and sides are family size portions. In hindsight we could have split the fried chicken (a full half chicken of 6 pieces) had we realized. As we were travelling, it felt wasteful to have to walk away from too much food. Otherwise it was a nice high end bar food place.

One of the BEST restaurant experiences I have ever had! The food, service, ambiance, etc was absolutely perfect! My husband and I went here to celebrate my birthday this past Friday and I couldn't have had a better birthday! When we arrived the table was set beautifully and they had given me a birthday card. The food was perfection- 1) I'm a very picky eater in general 2) I'm also picky about food because of a stomach condition that I have- however I have no complaints about the food and I can't even put into words how amazing the food was because it would not do it justice. I ate the deviled eggs, a hot roll (served fresh from the oven mind you), and the lobster. My hubby loved the rolls as well and ate the burger. We shared the chocolate creme pie for dessert. To top it all off, we had the most wonderful server named Marc. He was extremely polite, friendly, accommodating, could answer all our questions, took amazing care of us, and even had a candle on the pie for me for my birthday! I felt so spoiled. My husband and I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again and again!!

We went to San Francisco for a 4 night get-away for our 40th wedding anniversary and tried Wayfare Tavern based on a family recommendation. We were not sorry. From beginning to end, the service was impeccable and friendly, but not over-the-top friendly. Suggestions from the waiter were just that, suggestions, and he was right! Our only complaint was a table for 2 was a little close to the next table for 2, but we are from NY and used to that. The food was outstanding, order the fried chicken, you won't regret it!

·Dined on July 28, 2016

Have dined at several times since Wayfare Tavern opened mainly business lunches. Our server was a bit "over tabled" to say the least (floor managers were invisible). Finding her was a chore as was bus staff. 30 min into seating we still did not have the 2 bottles of wine ordered and lunch orders still not taken. 45 min in we lunch finally ordered however water and bread service (popovers) requested prior by a rare appearance of bus staff still not received. When the food finally arrived it was "good" however our entire party was ravenous at that point accordingly food was simply devoured rather than enjoyed. A third bottle of wine was ordered prior to food finally arriving and roughly 20 min later still had not made it to the table (original wine order also took extraordinary time to arrive). Caught servers eye told to cancel wine if not coming immediately as food finally had arrived, told " a manager needed to get the wine from upstairs". Seriously? To sum this unhappy diner experience up, Wayfare Tavern that I have dined previously for business lunches at least a dozen times, seriously dropped the ball on this visit. Wine service, bread/water service, and ability to "track down server" were all issues. One of my clients saw our server bussing a table or two herself, again buss staff, seriously? Pay attention to staffing levels the lack of staff directly effected our dining experience, it will be a while before I give Wayfare Tavern another try...

This is a destination restaurant, well worth the trip. The food is amazing!! F&W 2016 rated the fried chicken as #1 in the country! Don't be misled. This is "upscale" fried chicken, prepared sous vide, before it is very lightly fried. Everything on the menu is creative and perfectly executed. The attention to detail is amazing. It is always quite busy, thus a bit noisy. Grab a spot at the chef's table - fun and interesting.

I enjoyed everything about the restaurant. We tried the chicken because it had been advertised as being the best in America but was disappointed. I enjoyed it but it wasn't worth the hype. We asked for dark meat and didn't get any. The pieces were not what I would expect a restaurant of that caliber to serve -- one very small leg, one wing, a small breast and two small thighs. Also a bit on the oily side. Everything else was very good. The popovers were fantastic and the ice tea with the pomegranate syrup was a really nice touch.
