The Resy Guide to Great-Value Tasting Menus in San Francisco

By

If you’re anything like us, when you go out, you like to eat all the things. You’ll order that extra appetizer or second entree or third dessert simply because experiencing and eating through the menu is what you do best.

But sometimes menus are just too big, and there are just too many choices to make (we know, life is hard). Luckily, many chefs and restaurateurs have realized the diner’s predicament. Thus the omakase, or chef’s choice, or tasting menu, or Let The Kitchen Cook For You. The terminology keeps evolving, but the end result is the same: All you have to do is sit and enjoy. And while the tasting menu used to require serious spending in most cases, ever more restaurants are adapting it with affordability in mind — a way to let diners feel luxurious in a modest way.

With that in mind, here are seven top options for San Francisco restaurants with set menus that are great deals, topping out at $125/person. Treat yourself.
