San Francisco Top 25 Restaurants: September 2014

Our Foodable San Francisco Top 25 features restaurants with some of the highest social scores in the country. 23 of restaurants from last month return, with two new names making the list this September. 

What were the major shifts on the list with the veterans? The top dog this month is Bar Agricole, which is not surprising since this restaurant has been in the top 5 for most of 2014 and was no. 1 in June. State Bird Provisions moves from no. 4 last month to no. 2 this September. And SF's no. 3 restaurant, Maven makes a major climb from no. 10 last month.

The two new restaurants making their debut on the SF Top 25 this month are St. Vincent Tavern and Wine Merchant at no. 19 and Picco at no. 20. A newbie from last month, The Velvet Room returns to the list, but drops three places at no. 22.

After falling to No. 4 last month from its No. 1 spot in January, Waterbar makes its way back to the top spot for March. State Bird Provisions holds steady at No. 2 for the third consecutive month, and Bar Agricole — February’s top runner — sits at No. 3. Holding down the rest of the Top 5 are Coi and Epic Roasthouse, respectively. 

SPQR and Nopa both made big moves in the rankings this month, breaking into the Top 10 for the first time. Making a Foodable Top 25 list for the first time ever, we welcome Perbacco, Greens Restaurant, and Twenty Five Lusk. 

Falling out of the Top 25 rankings for March are Coqueta, South at SFJAZZ, and Stones Throw.
