"Walking into the Grand Cafe raises the spirits.
Inside a person feels like a first-class citizen in a world-class city."
– San Francisco Chronicle
The setting is equally unforgettable - a turn-of-the-century ballroom with soaring ceilings and original detailing brings the grandeur of a bygone era to life at our acclaimed Union Square Restaurant. Art Nouveau and Deco elements meld with an exciting collection of contemporary art pieces that lend a sense of whimsy to the room.
