The Commissary is offered by the Presidio Trust and award-winning chef Traci Des Jardins. Its Spanish-influenced California cuisine is driven by sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients. 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.
It is located in the heart of the Presidio, and fittingly housed in the former mess hall of iconic streetscape known as the Montgomery Street Barracks. Built in 1895 and known colloquially as 'infantry row,' the Barracks are adjacent to the beautiful Main Parade Ground.
The restaurant offers 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.
The Commissary was named a "Top 100 Restaurant" by the San Francisco Chronicle for three consecutive years. Special chef dinners are offered monthly.
