This highly acclaimed San Francisco seafood palace serves inventive coastal cuisine in a Union Square setting evocative of an underwater fantasy.
“Executive chef Mark Franz builds seafood entrées that surprise: filets arrive with a spoonful of delicate foam, a colorful purée, or bathed in an aromatic broth. A dressed-up raw bar provides fresh samplers from the world’s finest beds, and the signature Mariner cocktail (vodka, sherry, cucumber) provides a simple, refreshing complement. Playful, innovative desserts under famed pastry chef Emily Luchetti remain some of the best in the city.” - Gayot
“I cook for many reasons. I cook because I love to eat and I love to feed people. […] But whether I’m cooking at the restaurant or cooking at home for family and friends, I get as much pleasure from the process as I do the result.” – Chef Mark Franz
Located in San Francisco’s popular Union Square area, Farallon’s dramatic décor was designed by Pat Kuleto. The space evokes an underwater fantasy and features whimsical elements such as jellyfish chandeliers, a nautilus room, and a caviar staircase.
