The Grove San Francisco

Dec 07, 2017 - City Of San Francisco


Restaurant General Manager  -  The Grove Restaurants - San Francisco



The restaurant is busy and buzzing and vibrant. 

You have touched every table, sharing genuine interactions with our guests. They are savoring the City’s best turkey club sandwich or a big piece of organic cherry pie only we get, Listening to Ella Fitzgerald or maybe an unreleased Ramones song. Sitting on a 1930’s sofa from the Waldorf Astoria or under trees from the Grand Canyon or looking at a Moroccan fountain. Or maybe at the buzzing sidewalk cafe people-watching the parade of San Francisco humanity - that’s The Grove. It’s local, real, zero pretense, totally authentic, and personal.

And because of your skills in hospitality and expertly directing our crew with enthusiasm and teamwork, it is the best part of that guest's day. And our crew members’. And yours. 


Nearly 200 talented crew members and managers that thrive on engaging the people around us - both guests and each other - with our enthusiasm and sincerity and respect and caring.

Independently owned and operated by San Franciscans.

Four treasured neighborhood gathering places anchoring Hayes Valley, Pacific Heights, Soma/downtown, and the Design District. Established 1999 ... we are here for the long run

Straightforward, delicious American comfort food, with the fresh and healthy sensibilities and ingredients of Northern California. 

Cool, comfortable surroundings: timeless, stylish, vintage, custom, and Americana.  Old world charm meets hip sensibilities.  SF meets Europe, with a little NYC grit thrown in. And thriving sidewalk cafes.

Great music (10,000 songs from our personal library)

Open early 'til late, every day (flexible shifts)
