The Commissary Social Hour Reimagined

The Commissary is offered by the Presidio Trust and award-winning chef Traci Des Jardins. Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants of 2015, its Spanish-influenced California cuisine is driven by sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients.

The Commissary is located in​ the heart of the Presidio, housed in the former mess hall of an iconic streetscape known as the Montgomery Street Barracks. Built in 1895 and known as "infantry row," the barracks overlook the beautiful Main Parade Ground​.

The restaurant pairs authentic Presidio elements – such as lighting fixtures reclaimed from a historic Army gymnasium and Douglas Fir table tops fashioned from salvaged wood – with a comfortable, contemporary design.

The restaurant also offers limited traditional and bar seating, dining on the front porch, and "front row" seating surrounding an open kitchen where guests can watch the chefs in action. It's a great place for date night.

In addition to regular evening dining, the ​Commissary offers periodic special events, from guest chef dinners to holiday celebrations.

Chef Des Jardins has been a force in the San Francisco food scene for more than two decades and has won numerous awards from national and local magazines and the James Beard Foundation.

Private Dining

The Commissary offers spaces for intimate private gatherings as well as events for up to 120 guests. To learn more, contact or (415) 686-1669​.
