After two years of pandemic life, we can’t wait to get back to almost normal. And that means safely meeting up with friends (yes, friends!) to share a few drinks and apps together. If you’re still on the fence about indoor dining—or just want to take advantage of this incredible weather—here are still plenty of options with great outdoor seating too. We rounded up 18 of the best outdoor dining spaces in San Francisco to get your eat and drink on. From colorful rooftops to heated patios to gorgeously decorated plazas, these spots are where you’ll be spending lots of time this spring.
Editor’s note: Restaurants are still working hard to adapt and follow the latest safety protocols. Before you visit, be sure to check out their websites and social accounts for rules about vaccine and mask requirements.
