    Offering travelers upscale comfort in the form of oysters, lobster mac and cheese, steak tacos, and stiff seasonal drinks. Bonus for opening at 5 a.m. and offering biodegradable utensils to go.

    Cora's SFO post is fresh and sophisticated-a lounge feel with an eye-catching menu. There are elevated takes on simple dishes like, Spiced Fresh Tomato Soup or Grilled Cheese with farmhouse cheddar. Read more

    Really enjoyed the Grilled Avocado Salad. Cherry AND sundried tomatoes were a pleasant surprise. Avocado was cooked just right--completely creamy. High quality "bacon" strips. Great dish.

    Worth going if you aren't in a rush. Fresh Catch Lettuce Wrap is a mini nicoise salad. Nice flavor. Lobster Mac 'n Cheese sounds like a great idea, but the lobster flavor is lost in the rich cheeses.

    The fresh tomato soup and grilled cheese is just the right portion and simply scrumptious. A little on the salty side, but good.

    Must try the Housemade Chips and Dip. The blue cheese dipping sauce is awesome. Small plate so, it's only good for 1 to 2 people maximum. Enjoy and you can thank me later.

    Chimichuri chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries paired with a Royal C2 cocktail and Eric as your waiter transforms the airport to a foodie nirvana moment. Live piano music ties it up with a bow!

    Chips and warm blue cheese dip is solid. Great beers. Sandwiches, fresh salads and everything on the menu very solid. Great airport food.

    Leisurely service, lobster Mac-n-cheese very good, beet salad dressing drowns sweet beet taste & goat cheese on bread a nice touch.

    Great customer service! Took my order despite the kitchen not being open just at table the minute they opened! I made my flight easy.

    The Grilled Cheese and tomato soup, the sliders and or skewers. Delicious food, great service. Not your typical airport grub.

    Try the Cat Cora Pale Ale - SFO has mad class. Both Tyler Florence and Cat Cora at the Virgin America Terminal! This is a very good beer, btw.

    Great Bloody Mary. Tell the server what time you board before you order so they can guide your food choices.

    The stellar grilled cheese features a gooey blend of cheddar and feta cheeses on grilled sourdough. It's well worth the $10. Read more

    Dishes are small and somewhat pricey but yummy. Try the Mac & cheese with lobster and the flank steak tacos.

    Food was great! Oysters were small but good. Service was led than attentive. We weren't in a risk but we were not checked on once we got our food.

    Tried to get snacks and drinks, but waited 25 min for two cocktails then just cancelled them. Being ignored by the bartender so she can pour continuous shots for the three ppl at the bar is lame.

    Try the grilled cheese and tomato soup. Perfect airport snack and doesn't taste like airport food.

    Piano gave it nice ambiance that reduced the pre-flight jitters. The beer also helped a little.
