AT&T Park is a great attraction for tourists who come to eat at this restaurant after long walks. Serving perfectly cooked trout, caviar and bouillon is the unique characteristic of Saison. You will like its food, particularly good caramel ice cream, biscuits and cream caramel. A lot of visitors order delicious wine, beer or champagne. Here you can order great fruit tea, juice or coffee.

The homely atmosphere of this place allows customers to relax after a hard working day. The success of this spot wouldn't be possible without the terrific staff. Fabulous service is something guests appreciate here. Prices are attractive for the quality you receive. Many reviewers say that the nice decor inside is attractive. The two-star Michelin restaurant will serve you showpiece meals cooked by a famous chef.

The bill was appropriate for the quality.
The invitation was only for some petit fours + wines and it was an absolute outstanding experience. Especially the sea urchin on bread, lobster and the chanterelle mushrooms were excellent. Excellent wines to accompany the petit fours!
Saison was an incredible experience. Favorite high-end restaurant in SF proper (so far). Food: We so fully enjoyed every plate and every flavor. The uni liquid toast - a slice of sourdough bread grilled and drenched in a mix of brown butter and tamari, with a dollop of sea urchin on top - was phenomenal and deserving of its fame. Other notable dishes: barbecue quail, antelope with radicchio + biscuit with honey butter (omg...), and the antelope shank + bone broth. Drink: Fantastic beverage menu, and a very friendly, knowledgeable somm. We went for a bottle of 2012 Opus One during dinner, and night-capped with glasses of the Hibiki 18 and Whistle Pig Black Prince. Next time we will likely try the wine pairing. Service: In my experience, some higher end restaurants can fall into the trap of hovering waitstaff. We found the servers were neither intrusive nor distant. Each plate was perfectly timed, and the open kitchen was a joy to watch. I think our only complaint, as others have noted, was that the small space forced tables somewhat close together - a couple of times, we found ourselves inadvertently part of the conversation next to us. But to me that's just the price you pay for a downtown location. As an aside, my feeling is that you know what you're getting into price-wise, and I think it's a bit odd to call a restaurant like this overpriced: you're not here for a bargain meal. That said, the sum total amount of food was a bit less than the price-comparable TFL. Not that you'll leave hungry, necessarily, but this meal won't leave your belt feeling tight. So far we've done three 3-star spots in SF: TFL, Benu, and Saison. Much preferred Saison to Benu, and while it's an easier res than TFL, the food quality was on par, if perhaps a smidge less inventive than Yountville's crowning glory. Bills were similar at the end of the night.
