Reviews

I just went here today, and it was amazing. Note the five taste max for interesting, oft CA, tastes of wine. Lovely bubbles. A serene oasis.

LG

Nice food, only concern is that it will be quickly overcrowded. Will see on return trip tomorrow. Great pics folks, nothing for me to add! Update: plenty space mon 11am, lunch food amazing!

Kirkwood

Great food and drink, awesome atmosphere. Centurion sets the bar for lounges. Table service was a bit spotty, however.

Patrick

Simply the best lounge at SFO. The food is delicious, the design is beautiful, and the service is top notch. It may get a little crowded during the lunch hour, but there are always open seats around.

Garrett

This Centurion Lounge is smaller than Vegas but bigger than Dallas.

Awesome

Good food, awesome wine tasting, excellent cocktails and liquor selection, clean and new, awesome design. Kind of feels like the Andaz of airline lounges.

Justin

Best lounge at SFO! Excellent cocktails and amazing gourmet food. Dinner was filling. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The wine wall is a nice feature even though you only get 5 pours.

Matt

Puts all other lounges to shame...food was better than most restaurants!

Darius

The Centurion Lounges are always much better than your typical domestic airline lounge. Worth checking out if you have an AMEX Plat Card.

Jeffrey

Delicious menu (three Michelin star chef). Ample seating/workspace. Clean spacious shower. Great service. Expect nothing less from AMEX and outdoes any United Lounge I've visited domestically.

Anonymous

This lounge is great. I've found the bar can be hit or miss: sometimes there is an expert bartender and others that are still learning. Shower is well cleaned often without a line!

Rick

Away from the crowds, in a very busy corridor, but just go upstairs from the gate 74 door and it's a nice place, good looking food, good looking hipsters, a nice bar with good drinks and a wine tasting.

Jerry

I've never been excited about getting to the airport before, but this lounge makes me want to travel. Great food and drinks, comfortable seating of all kinds. Hasn't been crowded on my visits. 👍

Ryan

Staff is superbly hospitable at this lounge. Space-wise smallish but great food, great drinks. If you are not in for free with Amex Platinum, it is worth $50. (although I was in for free)

Hi

Ties with Virgin for best lounge in SFO. Drinks are the standout, with more than 15 Napa Valley wines, top-shelf cocktails, and a wine tasting wall. Food had only 1 entree, but lots of sides.

Henry

It is very busy but a great, comfortable addition to SFO.

Brian

The best airport lounge I've ever been to.

Chuck

Impressive lounge. Much more compact than other Centurion lounges. Wine tasting dispensers are a unique feature. Thought breakfast food was disappointing and not up to par. But cocktails are great!

Paul

This is hands down the nicest lounge I have ever been to. While the food selections were limited, the dishes available were delicious. Signatures cocktails were very good as was the wine selection.

Levell

I'll never return to a United Club if Centurion is available.

Tim

Free wine tastings, great food, and an extensive open bar. What's not to love?

Steve

Nice and tidy, above average food offerings and fantastic bar.

Mark

Wine tasting bar alone gets this 5 stars. Wish it was bigger like Dallas to be able to handle the crowds.

Peter

This is the 2nd visit to this lounge and its offerings are fantastic.

Justin

I would pay for the food and drink. Yum.

Eugene

One of the best domestic lounges. While food options had not been as extensive as other Centurions in the past, a new menu with more options is on the way. Can get very crowded at times though.

Casey

Good food and wine selection. Was crowded on both my visits. Great service. Shower is good and clean. Wine tasting wall nice touch. Very good domestic lounge.

Doug

Great lounge with good food and drinks and a very friendly staff. Unfortunately can get quite crowded even on normal weekdays.

Andrew

Luxurious, outstanding food and wines, beverages! Indeed, membership has its privileges!

Albert

Outstanding lounge for domestic flights.

Stephan

Awesome lounge! Love the wine tasting bar!!

Jen

Excellent food! Completely over and above any offering from the U.S. airlines.

Jerry

Awesome food/cocktails! Can get a bit crowded sometimes.

Naren

The wine tasting set this place apart from other Centurion lounges. Shower amenities catered by L'Occitane. Pro tip: you can use it as an arrival lounge, just make sure to present your boarding pass.

FlyingBarista

Excellent lounge with terrific food and drink options, including a wine bar with California wines galore to sample. A bit crowded but still easy to find an oasis.

Conrad

Great lounge, good food, never crowded it seems. I have yet to try their cocktail though... Someday!

Jessica

This is one of my favorite lounges at SFO. I love the food and drink offerings, and the decor is really refreshing!

Jennifer

This was the best lounge on my recent trip to Japan with layover in SFO. Food is gourmet and also top quality to be expected in San Francisco. Couches were comfy too.

Andy

This is a fantastic lounge. Very good food, free wine testing and very comfortable.

Raj

Great selection of wines, cocktails, and food at a conveniently located lounge. The space can get a bit crowded but not overwhelming. Absolutely worth a trip in.

Bradley

This lounge can tend to be quite crowded during peak travel times and seating can be scarce. The food was very good. Bathrooms were clean. Bartender is excellent, but custom made drinks slowed service

Doug

If you can get a seat, it's well worth the visit. Great bar and food options. No views of the Tarmac but there is a shower available.

Josh

The bartender was extremely rude. At least the older one with the beard was. Other than that, it was a pretty nice lounge. Although I prefer The Centurion Lounge in MIA and DFW.

Mike

These are the best lounges. SFO comes complete.

Patrick

The customer service at this lounge is great. It varies between very busy and nearly empty, but the employees, especially the bartenders, are very attentive and always checking on you.

Todd

New lounge with comfortable seating and good food/drink selection. Not large, but spacious enough.

Michael Schroder

Excellent Bloody Mary's with house made mix. Food so far has mostly been a fried chicken like meal. A little crowded at time but overall a great experience.

Allen

While nicer in terms of amenities than the nearby United Clubs, the overcrowded facility and guests whom sleep (sprawl) all over the furniture cancel out what could be an amazing lounge experience.

DM

Spent a few hours here and no complaints.

Ryan Schwartz

This lounge is the bee's knees. Legit cocktails from legit bartenders, delicious food, great wine selection. I go to the airport early just to get some time in this lounge!

Erik

One of the best lounges in the US. Decent and quality f&b. Can get really crowded though.

Baran

By far the best lounge in SFO and probably the best lounges in the USA. Great food, great booze, nice shower, and great service.

Jason

Very nice food and drink, though often overcrowded. I personally would not pay the $50 if I didn't have an Amex Platinum.

Aengus

This lounge is extraordinary by US standards. Good food, real mixed drinks (no well), several seating options, and a huge shower. It doesn't stand up to a European business lounge, but still great.

Chris

This lounge is AMAZING. It has a great design and is very new.

Warren

My favorite out of the Centurion Lounges but still good. A bit small and can get crowded.

Carl

Great breakfast selection and nice ambiance before my morning transcontinental flight on 12/22/15.

Fred

Great lounge! Free delicious real food, open bar, modern decor, clean bathrooms, and just a great time every visit.

Stephen

Great food, amenities, service. Much better than the Admirals Club or Delta lounge. Definitely worth a detour!

Terence

Awesome food, really beautiful, great service!

Liza

I love the barman there, he's always giving fun travel advise. Super clean, great cocktails, and food is delicious.

katierose

OK food. Not cosy though. Too small and no cool features.

ceo

It's a bit small for such a big airport so can get crowded quickly. Food and beverage are quite good and service too.

Jim

Very comfortable atmosphere, great for getting work done. The food is great, the drinks are excellent, the service staff is incredibly friendly. What more could you ask for? This is one of the best.

Graham Clark

Nice wine tasting, excellent bartender, comfortable and not too crowded.

Musa

Small but comfortable, nice food options and stylish decor. Has an enclosed area for small kids.

Retinol13

Can get crowded during the morning and evening rush, may be hard to find a seat. Food is always excellent and the staff is super attentive. GREAT wine selection.

Richie

This has to be one of the best airport lounges in the US. Food is top notch as are the amenities and customer service. I can't wait to see more of these open in other cites.

Anonymous

The lounge is very crowded; while the service provided is good, the wait to receive it is long.

Anonymous

Definitely an above average lounge, but always crowded and running out of utensils.

Willie

Bigger than the Seattle lounge, but impressive amenities including a full bar and complimentary purified sparkling and still water from Vivreau.

Jonathan

Not too bad but can be very over crowded. Great food and super clean with a fantastic bar selection!

Chris

Great lounge. Can get crowded.

Chris

Excellent hot food options. Great open bar. Prompt service at 8pm on a Thursday night. Quiet lounge area. Would definitely visit again. One of the best lounges I've visited.

Winsor Wesson

Very crowded & nowhere to sit when we arrived. Had to ask 4 people before we could get a spoon for soup. Not enough power plugs. Food was pretty good, but nowhere to sit to eat. Very disappointed.

Lana

Amazing, free cocktails and good food. Does need more power outlets.

Erica

Nice Amex flagship lounge. Decent food and tons of wines to taste.

Li

Love!!! Must come back. I feel relaxed indeed.

tiff Randol

Not sure how this is anything other than a 5 star lounge!

Anonymous

Best lounge at SFO. Excellent food, good service.

Stephan

Great place to hang out while waiting for your flight.

Anonymous

Great lounge, good food and awesome selection of wines. It was my first time here and I was pleasantly surprised with the coconut curry with chicken and delicious desert. Happy belly!

Ruben

Good selection of top quality liquor and wine. But grumpy bartender can ruin your experience. "Too busy" to wait on me then proceeds to clean glasses. I finally gave up. Manager came on 3rd request.

Roopinder Tara

Clean and modern, attentive staff, tasty fresh food. Only downside is having to wait an hour for a shower.

Ben

Fabulous food. Great wine. Friendly personnel.

Randall

Best lounge I've ever visited. Cancelled my Amex Platinum because I don't fly through SFO as much anymore but it's still worth the $50 fee using any other Amex card for access.

Adam

Too small, too crowded. Too few electrical sockets. Breakfast selection too mediocre. Couldn't find a place to sit on a Saturday morning! What a disappointment! Even the United Club was far superior.

Anonymous

Nice modern lounge. Good food including fresh fruit. Nice seating and good WiFi.

Mkesner

Certainly the best lounge I've visited in Continental US. Good variety of food and beverages. It could certainly use more electrical outlets, but it's not too bad. I would absolutely visit again.

Anonymous

Unbelievable lounge. Excellent food, top shelf liquor and wine tasting? Unreal.

Carl

Outstanding lounge, easily accessible from International G (just walk past United Club towards T3 right after security), great food and bev options. Can get crowded in the pm.

Fabio

Only concern is this lounge gets busy during rush flying hours. Ask a staff member to help you find a seat as they will ask those sitting alone to make room for you!

Anonymous

A most impressive lounge. The food is one of the best I've had at a lounge, and the alcohol menu is impressive.

Anonymous

Great lounge, much better than United Club. It was a little crowded but food and bar were great. Open bar with top notch brands. Good wine selection also.

Anonymous

Awesome lounge. Always a little on the crowded side, but I've never failed to find a seat and the food is invariably great.

Cody

The food is for adults--not the usual "disguised sugar," but with actual savory flavors. Comfortable seating, excellent bar, and a "quiet group of friends" feel. Very professional staff top it off.

Paul Lambert

Friendly staff & great food. Coffee station could use some work. Conveniently located and always an enjoyable stay here before a flight.

des

The shower is fantastic, the bar is well stocked, food selection is not big but good fresh quality, service is very friendly. Only drawback is that it can get very crowded. And ice cream is missing ;)

Nightfox

Great food and friendly service. Excellent beverage choices. Can get crowded even at off hours. Some of the chairs have seen better days.

Anonymous

Quality food and friendly services.

Nicole

Very crowded at 9:30am Wednesday morning. Food good, service excellent. **TSA AGENT REFUSED OUR ACCESS TO THIS LOUNGE when we didnt have a flight from terminal 3, so we have to fly United to access.

David

I love the breakfast menu, but don't expect this place to be a sanctuary from airport madness. Not an open seat in the house a 9:30am on a Saturday.

Mike

Among the best lounges in the US, healthy and fresh food options and awesome cocktails! Only drawback is that there are no views of the tarmac.

Anonymous

Great lounge but for SFO it is severely inadequate. There are just toooo many people here all the time. Amex makes mad money on people that use these cards so this lounge is inexcusable.

Anonymous

This place is a great respite within SFO. The food is good and cocktails delicious. It's crowded so you do have to hunt for a spot.

Anonymous

Fruit flies shouldn't exist at a bar buried inside an airport. It tells that the kitchen/bar should be cleaner. Also the bar was out of key cocktail ingredients, this isn't the first time seeing this.

Anonymous

Crowded, but good food and far better than a United Club.

David

We always book out flights out of SFO just to come here. TSA knows that people come through this gate just for this lounge and it's not a problem.

Stephanie

Probably one of the best lounge I have done. Great service, great food, great drinks. Will definitely come back next time I fly from SFO!

Arnaud

Miriam at the front desk was so nice and accommodating. She was simply amazing.

Anonymous

The space is well designed with a variety of comfortable places to sit, relax and eat. There is also very accessible outlets for charging your technology. Wifi was fast.

Anonymous

Excellent food spread, with plenty to eat for vegetarians as well!

Anonymous

Extremely busy lounge. May feel more crowded than the sitting areas outside the lounge. Like other Centurion Lounges, food is delicious. Relatively quiet for the number of people. Courteous staff.

David

The lounge has waves of people but the turnaround is pretty quick and finding seating was relatively easy. Food was tasty and fast service; those cooks are working hard! Clean bathrooms, nice staff.

Anonymous

Nice place to relax and get away from the busy gates at SFO.

Anonymous

I always make a point of stopping in on departure and arrival. Can be very crowded, but once you are settled, it’s the best!

Alec

Only standing rooms left at 12pm on a Friday. This lounge feels like a bus stop now. This constant overcrowding is getting out of hand.

Marius

I think...the best lounge in SFO...

Salvo

Excellent food, facilities, and service. Probably best club in any US airport. Lack of plentiful power, though.

Anonymous

This is the 3rd AMEX Lounge I have been to (SEA & LAS the other two). I would say overall, this was the best one I have been to so far. Food offerings are very good. FYI - It can get crowded.

Anonymous

One of the best lounges I’ve been to in the US. Great food and nice environment. Wine vending machine! I highly recommend stopping by if you have some time!

Matthew

So horribly overcrowded that I could not sit anywhere. Tons of children and a bartender with bad attitude. I left.

John

No free seats. No places to seat. Too many peoples.

Marcos

Over Christmas, with United Club undergoing renovations, this place was a zoo. Literally standing room only. That said, great bar and hot food options, with staff working as hard as they can.

Cam

Compared to United lounges, a big upgrade. Unfortunately it gets really crowded at times. Other times are surprisingly relaxed volume. Food is great, always something a little different. Healthy.

Anonymous

Mostly a great lounge. The food is top quality. The drinks flow freely and the staff is attentive. The only negative is that the place is almost always packed, and often by a lot of low-class people.

Anonymous

Excellent lounge. Very crowded.

Dominik

Excellent lounge and great food. There are certain times where this place gets really crowded and they have to control entry.

MG

Screaming kids. Sound of dishes thrown around. Unfriendly bartender. But front desk staff were excellent. Disappointed in American Express.

Jay

Stopped in at 7:45pm on a Friday - luckily flying out of gate 74. Grabbed a quick bite and drink. Able to grab seats right away. A bit crowded, but manageable. Food and wine were both outstanding.

Janet

Visited Saturday around 10AM. A noisy, overcrowded mess. Worst lounge I’ve been too in ages. Luckily had access to the United Club in E Concourse, which was much nicer.

Anonymous

The kids room is a blessing for family travelers!

Anonymous

Nice food and facilities but it's so crowded you have to fight for a seat

Rod

Always great! Bartender hooked me up, food was delicious! You guys are Amazeballs

Anonymous

Fantastic food here. Hope it is not so crowded. That will make it perfect

Yu Liu

Excellent service + elevated F&B options. It was full but managed to secure a seat. Expect the typical CL decor but SF-inspired cuisine. Highly recommend.
