Sens invites you to experience a culinary adventure through the sun-drenched Mediterranean.

Executive Chef Vernon Morales infuses the exotic spices, lush flavors and traditional techniques indigenous to these lands with a modern sensibility and the freshest local ingredients. Seasonally inspired desserts, created by our Pastry Chef Lorena Morales complements our Farmer’s Market driven menu. Our extensive wine list, featuring many of California’s most popular vineyards, is also a continuation of our menu and includes the Southern Mediterranean regions of Italy, Spain, Greece, and North Africa.

Ambience abounds at Sens with beautiful stonework, exposed wooden beams, oversized leather chairs and exquisite tableware. Our original Spanish zinc bar, hand crafted custom family table, tiled wood-burning oven and dynamic open kitchen are just a few of the elements that make Sens special and also characterize our menu’s rustic sophistication. Overlooking the historic Ferry Building, Justin Herman Plaza, and the Bay Bridge, Sens’ rich interior textures are juxtaposed by some of the most spectacular views in San Francisco.
