What are the prix-fixe menu price points?

You can choose from the following prix-fixe menu options:

Lunch: $10, $15, $25

Dinner: $25, $40, $65

What service types are included?

Fall San Francisco Restaurant Week will be open to any SF restaurant offering outdoor dining, indoor dining and takeout. All service types will need to be in adherence to state and city safety guidelines and regulations.

Can we offer more than one type of menu?

Yes. Your restaurant can serve a special lunch AND special dinner menu.

What should we offer on our prix-fixe menu?

Many diners use Restaurant Week to try out new restaurants. This is your chance to connect with new guests that can become regular diners. For new diners, being able to try your signature dishes, is often a draw. You can also use the opportunity to test out a new menu item and see how it’s received. Any deals or special offers are welcome and encouraged during SF Restaurant Week.

We already offer a prix-fixe menu at a different price point, can we still participate?

Yes. Use the program as a chance to build in something special (i.e. a special offer for diners).

I don’t normally offer courses. Can I get creative with what I’m offering on my menu(s)?

Yes! As long as you meet the three criteria outlined above in the menu requirements, you are welcome to be as creative as you like to make SF Restaurant Week work for your restaurant!

Some ideas include:

  • Lunch or Dinner for Two
  • Meal Kits
  • Beverage pairings (either included in the cost of the menu or offered as supplemental items)

What are the menu requirements?

  • Your menu(s) must fall under one of the six price points outlined above.
  • You must offer at least two items for lunch and at least three items for dinner
  • You must include the Eat Drink SF logo on your menu
  • We ask that you offer your menu(s) consistently throughout the 10 days (within your restaurant’s regular operating days/hours)

Do we have to participate in the program over the weekend?

We ask that you offer consistent pricing through the 10 days of Restaurant Week. Data shows that many diners make their SF Restaurant Week reservations for the weekends. Not offering the menu continuously throughout the program generates considerable confusion for diners who come looking or expecting a special menu. If you are not going to offer the menu on weekends we suggest you contact ALL weekend reservation holders and notify them that you won’t be offering the Restaurant Week menu.

Do we have to use OpenTable as a reservation platform to participate in the program?

No. SF Restaurant Week is open to any restaurant that wants to participate regardless of whether you use OpenTable’s reservation platform.
