San Francisco Top 25 Restaurants: March 2015

Some major shifts occurred on this month’s San Francisco Top 25 List! Notably, State Bird Provisions jumped from No. 11 to No. 1 and the Slanted Door moved up a whopping twenty places from No. 23 to No. 3. 

In addition to these major shifts, two old favorites made a reappearance, the Boxing Room, which hasn’t graced the list since September and Saison which hasn't numbered in the top 25 since July.

The list also saw three newcomers this month: Acquerello debuted at No. 5, Wayfare Tavern clocked in at No. 8 and Gary Danko entered the list at No. 10 – an overall impressive ranking for all three new arrivals.

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.
