Fast and friendly service and the inside of the restaurant is pleasantly very nice and a... More

I eat here often, the food is good, service is fast and the setting is nice (bit different than your average lunch place in SF Financial District, where they want you in and out). DGF menu items are fresh, fast, local and healthy, mostly salads, soups and sandwiches. I also like the location, is on one of my favorite streets... More

This is probably the best breakfast I had in my 7 day stay in the locality. The sandwiches and smoothies were just the way they're supposed to be.

I was very impressed with the quality of food here in what seemed to be a quick grab and go sort of breakfast restaurant, a few tables but mostly order at the counter and be on your... More

We came in at around lunch time and the workers seemed irritated and busy. We had a tri tip sandwich which we were excited to try and got the roasted cauliflower soup. The soup tasted like cream of mushroom soup, and came with A couple pieces of cold chewy bread, the tri tip came luke warm with cold tough bread.... More

My friend and I went to Darn Good Food for lunch. The food was tasty and fresh. My complaints have to do with the environment. I know that heat can be a major expense for restaurants, especially those with lots of glass, but diners need to be comfortable to enjoy the meal. We ended up eating with our coats on... More

After walking so many hills, we were famished. What a delightful surprise to find Darn Good Food! I chose to make a salad. The ingredients were the freshest I've tasted in any restaurant and the portions generous. My husband raved about the miso sauce used on the sandwich he chose, too. A great SF find!

I've dined here several times and have always enjoyed my meals. I feel like you get healthy filling choices that are well prepared. Nice selection of beer and wine as well as non-alcoholic drinks. The proprietor and his staff are genuinely concerned with your dining experience and provide excellent service. Love both the lamb & tofu dishes!

We were both lured in by the good reviews and couldn't have been happier. The people here are great, the food is delicious, and it's clean. Bathrooms, not so clean and located in a dungeon below, but that's our only complaint.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
