10 Best Restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area

Our group of 30 Under 30 honorees are a talented bunch, and if you keep an eye out, no doubt you'll see them continue to ascend in the Bay Area food scene. But do they have what it takes to become the best in town? We're confident that over time, some of these scene stealers will appear on our Best Restaurants list. For a peek at the current competition, read on for the ratings and reviews of the big names that made the 2013 San Francisco Bay Area Restaurants guide.


  1. Just went to the French Laundry last month. It was definitely not easy to get in, but we were in town for 4 days & got put on the standby list & made it. It was wonderful and the staff absolutely could not have been more helpful.

  2. My husband and I have dined at the French Laundry twice. It is an experience not a meal. It compares with nothing else in restaurant dining. It is the standard that all other s restaurants should strive for.
