Ayala is a modern, convivial restaurant inspired by the seafood of Coastal California and beyond.

Nestled in the corner of Hotel G amid San Francisco's bustling Union Square neighborhood, Ayala showcases the cuisine of Executive Chef Melissa Perfit featuring a raw bar, a selection of lightly dressed seafood, as well as creative small plates and takes on classics served in a bright, airy setting.

The cocktail and martini program, curated by Julian Cox, was developed in conjunction with the chef team by sourcing ingredients from local farms and pairing them with unique spirits, resulting in a collection of cocktails perfectly suited to the fare.

The wine list features meticulously sourced bottles from coastal vineyards in both old world and new, primarily from smaller producers working in an organic, biodynamic, or “natural” fashion. Showcasing warm hospitality and a fun, welcoming environment, Ayala is an ideal space for cocktails, date nights and group gatherings alike.
