One Market San Francisco 11

One Market Restaurant opened in 1993, and was a big event marking star chef Bradley Ogden’s return to the City. We have not been back in probably 10 years, so it was time to try it again. It recently got awarded One Michelin star. We visited One Market for Lunch and sat in the bar area.

One Market San Francisco 1

Decor, Vibe – Modern corporate business-like wood panel decor. Fairly crowded with lots of business people on their power lunch.

Picks:

One Market San Francisco Pear Salad

Roasted Pear Salad ($12) pt. reyes blue, frisée, candied walnuts was a really good salad and looked great but was pretty tiny. The greens were fresh, walnuts were tasty, and the blue cheese was strong.

One Market San Francisco Roast Chicken

Roasted All-natural Half Chicken ($16.25) with braised cipollinis, chicken jus was a pretty healthy sized portion. Chicken was very tender and the chicken just was perfect. It is hard to get excited about chicken, but this was pretty good. The chicken came with nothing else but a small onion.

One Market San Francisco Cod

Olive Oil Poached Local Black Cod ($26.50) with summer beans, cherry tomato, basil, olive oil emulsion looked beautiful and melted in ones mouth.

OK:

One Market San Francisco Squash

Roasted Summer Squash ($7.75) wild fennel pollen had decent quantity but could have been cheaper. It was cooked well and had a little more butter than I would prefer.

Pans:
None

Service was above average but not overly attentive. Prices are pretty high for lunch, making dinner an even more expensive proposition. Quality of the food was surprisingly good. It is time to give an old timer like One Market Restaurant more consideration when choosing where to dine.

    Not surprised the blue cheese was strong-i find that Bradley Ogden has quite a way with strong cheeses, which I happen to love! BTW

    […] Nearby restaurants include excellent Italian restaurant Perbacco and sister restaurant Barbacco. One Market and Boulevard are not far […]

    One Market Restaurant has horrible robotic service and poorly trained waitstaff. Do not come here unless you want to be treated like a peasant, and made to wait. Given their reputation and cost, I would expect so much more from One Market and highly recommend that you look elsewhere for fine dining experiences in San Francisco.

    Long story short, my company had a 40 person event at this restaurant last night. I am suffering from a chronic cough so my girlfriend and I both personally asked at least four off the waitstaff numerous times to bring me some tea. It took these incompetents over 12 minutes to bring me some hot water as I sat coughing up a lung. 12 minutes for water and tea leaves??

    I would never come here again, either as a patron or as a guest.
