Innovative items like geranium ice cream and sea urchin with asparagus create not just a luxurious dining experience, but a slightly adventurous one as well. With just 22 seats, you'll need to book far in advance, but the experience will be well worth it. Fresh-baked bread is a diner favorite, as is their vegetarian tasting menu. Since they do a tasting menu each month, call in advance with any food allergies and they will accommodate your needs.Recommended for:

One of the best meals I've ever had. Michelin star well deserved. We had 10 courses with the wine pairing. Every dish was beautifully prepared using fresh, local ingredients (many of which come from their own garden in Los Altos) and delicious. The service was impeccable - the staff knew both the ingredients and the wines very well. This restaurant is both very expensive (we spent about $415 for 2 people, including the wine pairing), and popular (read: book ahead). The atmosphere was simple, with cool music and a fireplace.Recommended for:

Sons and Daughters provided one of the best dining experiences I have ever had in San Francisco. To start, we had cocktails in the waiting area which was a really comfortable, quaint little room while our table was getting ready. The menu is extremely interesting with a really simple explanation of the main ingredients in each dish. There were three of us at dinner and we ended up ordering most of the menu among us and everything was cooked perfectly. The best part of the meal was how elegantly everything was served to us. Even though the food and presentation were extremely well refined, the plus wasnt stuffy or pretentious at all. Highly worth a visit if you want a really special dinner.

The dinner at Sons & Daughter was an unforgettable experience. For a $90 tasting menu, expectation could only be set at sky high.
They took plating to an art. The presentation is dazzling. My salad looked like a spring garden with a pond and the uni dish looked like sea aquarium.
My dinner did actually taste like Post-Impressionism artwork. Flavors were vivid, bold, yet still confined to original form of ingredients and not totally abstract with overwhelming experimental gastronomy techniques.
The bread... on my.. I was presented with 3 different bread courses and they were all heavenly. I can't think of a place off my head with better bread service.
It's proximity to Curran Theatre made it a great choice for pre-show dining. The dining room. while trendy and cute, is really too cramped for a more intimate romantic dinner. I would probably pick a different place for special occasion celebration.
Note: I heard after my dinner that they have increased the tasting menu price from $90 to $135. Would I pay that much for it? Yes I would. However, that might also knock a star off as there are better choice at this price range.Recommended for:

A-MA-ZING. my bf wanted to try this place before they got their michelin star, but we decided on somewhere else instead and i regret it. our meal here was fantastic! it was reasonably priced for a restaurant w/ a star, the flavors were great and the service wasn't bad either. they served a different little piece of bread w/ each course which helped cleanse the palate. i think the venison was my fave. i'm definitely coming back to see what they put on their menu next!
