San Francisco Dining + Nightlife
The abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood and organic meats from local farms, combined with the wide variety of ethnic cuisines and an impressive list of world-famous chefs have made San Francisco a gourmet destination and the cradle of the "California Cuisine."
Many restaurants require dinner reservations. They can be made by phone or through the hotel’s concierge.
It is necessary to leave a tip of 15% of the total amount of the bill. In San Francisco smoking is forbidden in all restaurants and bars.
California law does not allow the sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks to minors under 21 years of age. It is necessary to show a legally valid ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, to enter bars and nightclubs.
Bars close at 2 a.m.; some nightclubs are open later, but do not serve alcohol.
