San Francisco's Best Restaurants With Outdoor Dining

San Francisco restaurants are able to reopen for outdoor dining this month.


Published February 05, 2021

Exciting news SF – restaurants across our favorite city by the bay are now able to reopen for outdoor dining. San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that, “Opening our restaurants is a great step that will help our small businesses that are struggling, our workers who need paychecks, and our residents who are ready to safely sit outside and enjoy a meal.” 

San Francisco restaurants will follow similar protocol that other reopened Bay Area counties have, such as a six patron table limit. However, in San Francisco, parties can be larger than six if everyone is a part of the same household.

To get us in the spirit to start drinking spirits (With people! Outside! In public!), we’ve rounded up 11 restaurants with outdoor spaces we can look forward to dining at.
