"The experience was outstanding as usual. Service was a bit slower than normal, but probably due to an almost full house."

At Farallon, Chef Mark Franz serves coastal cuisine with French influence. The menu changes daily depending on what's fresh. Expect exciting combinations and show-stopping execution.
