Executive Chef Carolynn Spence has conceived of a hearty menu with European influences. With a focus on a balanced palate, fresh local produce and simplistic, flavorful share plates, this dining experience is gastronomic delight.

"We had a meeting here and th food and service were excellent. Endive salad was excellent. The Ciopino was great too. A little heat. The Rose they served was also well done. Our server was engaging and respectful of our need to conduct business. Great place."

At Society Cafe at Encore, rising star chef Jeremy Pacheco's reimagined comfort fare adds elegance and decadence to classic American dishes. The accomplished chef has a deft touch with crafting crowd-pleasing dishes that bring new flavor to traditional favorites: for breakfast there are steak and egg 'sliders' and tempting 'XL' sticky buns. At lunch, filet mignon sliders share the bill of fare with Chatham Bay fish and chips and Society's lobster-bake. At dinner, the cafe's signature bone-in cowboy steak and addictive mac n'cheese bites turn the comfort volume way up. The cafe's fanciful decor combines grandeur and whimsy - a place where black crocodile chairs and vivid lime green accents meet comfy fuchsia-tufted settees. Overlooking the busy casino floor, Society imbues the casual cafe experience with personality, life and great people watching. Reservations accepted for dinner only.

This beautiful original Art Deco building began as the Lincoln Grill in 1928. Since 1981, it has been The Elite Cafe. Since its inception, The Elite has served exquisite food with the flavors of New Orleans. Our current menu continues this tradition but with an emphasis on seasonality, the freshest local ingredients, and a lighter touch in our preparation. From the original mahogany booths to the beautiful full bar to the unsurpassed people watching on the Upper Fillmore, The Elite Cafe has something for everyone. We now offer HEATED-OUTDOOR Dining. Enjoy Brunch, Dinner, or a glass of wine while experiencing one of San Francisco's most exciting Shopping & People-Watching streets.

"Don't let the hotel next to the restaurant fool you. EXCELLENT! Fun 70s decor. Drinks amazing. The Vodka Drink is great. The fish dish was excellent. Tater tots, Brussels sprouts and farmers market veggies were great. Definitely coming back again."

"Went for St Pattys day. Great drinks. Slow bar tender. Took way too long to get drinks even with a slow night. The New Old Fashion made up for average everything else."
