Guide By Sophie Gragg
Whether you're taking holiday family photos, vacation selfies, or snapping pictures with old friends, you're going to want a space that feels breathtaking. Luckily, San Francisco is full of picture-perfect spots serving great vibes that are sure to leave you feeling merry and bright.
For this holiday guide to our favorite (and some of the best Instagram worthy restaurants) in San Francisco, I focused on places with great aesthetics and vibes. Scrolling through you'll find restaurants that are beautifully designed alongside restaurants serving dishes you'll love looking at.

Most of the spaces featured in this guide are available on the inKind app and with inKind Pass. Those not available on the inKind app are great holiday-themed spots that are just a hop, skip (or subway ride) away from our partner restaurants.

When you dine with inKind Pass, you'll get special bonuses every time you dine at hundreds of restaurants across the country. From Michelin-star restaurants to elevated cocktail lounges, inKind Pass lets you dine at the premiere restaurants and the best cocktail bars in San Francisco and throughout the country.

The Our Favorite Instagram Worthy Restaurants in San Francisco

Wildseed

2000 Union St, San Francisco, CA 94123
If you're looking for an elevated dining experience with beautiful, flavorful vegan cuisine, make your way to Wildseed. Serving seasonal plant-based dishes, their light and airy aesthetic makes for the perfect background for a food photoshoot. In addition to their colorful bites, make sure you order a cocktail or two as their garnishes take things to another level.
An inKind Recommendation
While Wildseed has a stellar lunch and dinner menu they also serve a world-class brunch. Take friends and share some of their Mexican Corn Cakes or Belga Fries. We also recommend the Red Velvet Flaxseed Pancakes for anyone with a major sweet tooth.

Estiatorio Ornos

252 California St, San Francisco, CA 94111
Go for a Grecian getaway at Michael Mina's Estiatorio Ornos for a meal full of flavor and picture-worthy dishes. With an array of spreads and classics like lamb chops, lemon chicken and mushroom moussaka, Ornos elegantly plates each dish so your table will be practically begging for a photo. Try a little bit of everything and you'll find yourself in Grecian heaven.
An inKind Recommendation
Whenever possible, we at inKind like to recommend one of their tasting menues or multi-course meals. It's the best way to fully experience a chef's skill and artistry. The Ornos Experience is no different. For just $125 per person, you'll get four courses of expertly prepared dishes that will transport you to a Grecian heaven.

Miracle at Pacific Cocktail Haven

550 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
During the year Pacific Cocktail Haven already has an instagrammable aesthetic, but during the holidays they've joined in on the holiday pop-up craze by transforming their bar into Miracle at Pacific Cocktail Haven. Their decor features bright string lights, garland and tinsel draped bar-backs, Santa hats, and plenty of bulbs and Christmas kitsch. This spot is great for anyone looking to snap a few holiday pictures while sipping on classic and seasonal cocktails.

Okane

669 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94103
When you come to Okane for a delicious Michelin-starred meal, just know you'll be walking away with a camera roll full of mouth-watering shots. Okane truly takes the presentation of their sushi to another level, approaching their dishes almost like a piece of art. With a range of cold and warm dishes, nigiri, sashimi, handrolls, and specialty roles, their range provides a colorful palette that begs for an Instagram shot.
An inKind Recommendation
Everything at Okane is delicious so it's hard to pick a favorite from their extensive list of sushi options. Some personal favorites are the Chu-Toro, the Ikura, and the Harajuku specialty roll.

Fiorella - Sunset

1240 9th Ave. San Francisco, CA 94122
With a rooftop deck and a gorgeous wood fireplace, Fiorella's newest location in the Sunset District sure checks a lot of boxes. If the charming decor and design of this spot aren't enough, their Italian delights and drinks are just as photo-worthy. Go with a group of friends so you each get a variety of dishes and get a chance to snap a handful of their beautiful cocktails.
An inKind Recommendation
You can't go wrong ordering one of Fiorella's pizzas. The Margherita pizza is a classic that'll please even the pickiest of diners but for something more unique try their wood-roasted honeynut squash or one of their signature pasta dishes.

Tacolicious

Multiple locations
Don't let the idea of casual Mexican cuisine fool you into thinking Tacolicious is anything short of beautiful. With classic authentic dishes like tacos, carnitas, and tostadas, Tacolicious brings color into every plate in a carefully crafted way. Get yourself a marg and don't be shy when it comes to their food so you can get that eye-catching Instagram shot.
An inKind Recommendation
The star of Tacolicious' menu is, of course, tacos. Make sure to order a variety of them to get a feel for the different flavors. Solid choices are their traditional carnitas, braised beef and chorizo tacos.
