  • Best piano player in SF! He takes requests. Sit, listen and be transported back to the '30's, 40's and 50's Magical.
  • This restaurant is all about the finer thing in life, the sense of classic oozes from every corner of the place.
  • I've taken a hankering for sauzerac but boy unlike a grilled cheese they are hard to get right. Lucky for you Ty makes them perfect. So order one up!
  • Have the Manhatten it's the best in SF
  • The type of place Don Draper and Roger Sterling would frequent.
  • Ah.Maz.Ing. Sit back , get a Manhattan, listen to the tantalizing tickles of the ivories and let yourself go. Take a tour of the old photos and pretend you're Dagny Taggert.
  • Live piano player, sit and have a beer in a ultra fancy setting.
  • Sit by the fireplace and listen to Michael Pearson play the piano - life is good!
  • Get the Chopin vodka martini. They taste like pure artisinal water and kick yo ass!

  • Go to The Big 4 and note the cocktail tables etched with the place's namesakes: Crocker, Hopkins, Huntington, and Stanford.
  • Make sure to ask one of their waiters, Ron Henggeler, (who's also an in-house historian and a decorator) to tell you about the history of the Huntington Hotel and the Big 4. Also, Filet Mignon is yum
  • The grilled chicken wrap is absolutely incredible.
  • Chicken pot pie and the pork chop! takes me back to the 1920s atmosphere
  • An oasis in the terrible food scene of San Francisco. A class act ambiance, fantastic food, and proper service. Love love love Big 4!
  • Old school vibe and great steak!
  • Romantic bar with a sexy sophisticated atmosphere.
  • Great old-school steakhouse with lots of character.
  • All the good things written about the chicken pot pie and steak are true.
