Unfortunately I ended up in San Francisco during a heatwave and most places don’t have air conditioning. Saison unfortunately was no exception. I hate to judge the experience solely based on the temperature, but it in fact did make the evening almost unbearable especially as the staff seemed to almost ignore it instead of acknowledging it. When we tried to have a server take away the wool and fur throws and pillows on our seats which were making us sweat by looking at them, he seemed taken aback. Two hot teas and a hot broth were on the menu and as the heatwave was forecasted I can’t understand why these dishes were not changed. The signature uni dish was fabulous as was the antelope. But my lasting impression was of my sweat soaked dress plastered to me as I stood up to leave.
