Whether you want fresh fish from the bay, New York strip steak, breakfast in bed, a late-night snack or a personalized sundae, the 24-hour room service menu at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco will fill you up. Not every item is available 24 hours, but you can order a decent portion of the menu at any time.
Breakfast, served daily from 5:30 to 11 a.m., includes light options, like fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal and berry smoothies. There are several combination platters; our favorite is the traditional Market Street Breakfast with two eggs your way, potatoes, meat, pastries, plus coffee or tea and your choice of freshly squeezed juice — there’s orange, carrot or grapefruit. If you’re counting calories, opt for the Healthy Start combo, featuring an egg white omelet with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes, turkey bacon and whole wheat toast. And if you aren’t watching your waistline, indulge in specialty breakfasts like eggs Benedict, corned beef hash with poached eggs and smoked salmon on a bagel. There are also a few tasty treats off the griddle, including chocolate-buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon raisin French toast with banana-rum compote, Belgian waffles and lemon-ricotta pancakes.
Lunch and dinner portions are served on the all-day menu from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and include soups (the San Francisco crab and bay shrimp chowder is highly recommended), sandwiches, burgers, salads with farmer’s market veggies and several entrées. Heartier fare like beef tenderloin, New York strip steak, organic salmon filet with lemon and caper beurre blanc, and a fresh catch of the day are on offer. For your sweet tooth, try a classic like double-chocolate cake, Granny Smith apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream, crème brûlée, or make your own sundae. If you’re having guests in your room, order up party snacks, like an artisanal cheese platter, chips and guacamole, and caviar.
Those planning on exploring the hills of San Francisco, heading to Wine Country or laying out a blanket in front of the Golden Gate Bridge should take one of the menu’s three picnic lunches. The California Classic is a delicious bet — it’s filled with tomato, mozzarella, basil, pesto-marinated chicken with a Cobb salad, avocado, smoked bacon, sliced melon, berries and an oatmeal cookie.
The late-night menu is available from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily, and is an abbreviated version of the all-day menu, with a handful of soups, salads, sandwiches, steak, fish and pasta from which to choose.
