Value, quality of service, quality of food and location of our table were all good.

The man at the parking booth was helpful. WE parked along the road, but it looks like there is ample parking up above if you want to pay for it. The reservation process is easy and efficient. The venue, built in 1941, is classic. And what a view! The staff was welcoming. Our table was all ready for us when we got there. The service is good. The people in the betting booths were helpful to this novice gambler. We didn't get the buffet, but it was impressive... all kinds of meat, side dishes, and an astonishing array of desserts. The food is good, not 5 star, but tasty. We had a blast down in the Winner's Circle and the young woman who took us down was very knowledgable and answered all our questions. The man who bugles got us involved in a spirited version of "Tequila!". And the crowd watching was the best. If you go here, get decked out. Women in veiled hats, men in dapper brightly colored suits, fedoras with feathers stuck in the brim. We will pull out the stops next time we go.

No. We had a wonderful time.

Facility, including the service and defiantly the value. We had a great time!

Would've liked to have been able to see jockeys mounting the horses.

Golden Gate Fields is the only horse racing venue left in the Bay Area so we enjoyed the experience and appreciated spending the day in the Club House. The service was good, our waiter was in training and it showed, but he tired very hard to accommodate us. It was a fun day.

The Turf Club, the food was excellent, the atmosphere exciting.
