OutstandingGreat alternative if flying Qantas to the AF/KLM lounge. Friendly staff, great food. Noodle Bar lives up to its rep.
AnonymousMay 2018
OutstandingA calm oasis. Entered as an AS Lounge member. Noodle bar just closed but substantial snacks available as well as a variety of wines. Great space.
SirLouFebruary 2018
SatisfactorySpacious but seriously lacking in good food or beverage. Noodle Bar is OK but otherwise no better than Admirals Club. Not what you’d expect from a Cathay lounge.
Mike Dickson December 2017
OutstandingVery nice lounge with variety of staying options, good food selection and nice work spaces.
SJAOctober 2017
OutstandingThis lounge is an excellent place to relax before your flight. Freshly made noodles are delicious and deli sandwiches are great. Solus chairs are available in the expanded area for extra comfort.

OutstandingGreat service, friendly Staff and a very relaxing time in this gorgeous lounge. Highly recommended.
MagsyFebruary 2017
OutstandingAwesome lounge. One of the best at SFO. Real Chinese dishes and of course, the noodle bar. Plenty of space to spread out, plus showers and fast WiFi.
GarrettFebruary 2017
OutstandingReally enjoyed this lounge. The food was delicious, and the coffee was strong. From a teammate, "the mocha tastes like candy." The WiFi could be a bit faster, but everything else was 👌

OutstandingGreat views, food, and service!
Liza February 2017
OutstandingWhat an excellent lounge! Great service, delicious premium food (make sure to try dan dan noodles soup!) and very comfortable seating area. 10/10!
ArturFebruary 2017
SatisfactoryOn Alaska Airlines pass. They kicked me out of one area that was Cathay Pacific only (no signs, no explanation). Several loud announcements of the Cathay Pacific flights over PA and individually.

Needs ImprovementBeing a Qantas Platinum wasn't allowed access for some reason, been here many times before.
PatrickNovember 2016
OutstandingAs a British Airways passenger, this lounge was a welcome escape from the crowds over at the BA lounges. Food selection was alright but there was a delicious noodle bar. Spacious, clean, and modern.
AndrewNovember 2016
OutstandingOutstanding lounge on West Coast. Alaska Board Room grants access. Good food selection and great liquors. Got here and no one around since Hong Kong flight boards are 1:10.
MarkJuly 2016
OutstandingA typical Cathay quality lounge. Great place to go before your flight. Modern design, comfortable seating, showers, wifi. Much better than domestic lounges in the US.

SatisfactoryArea is small, facility tends to be old.
RitaAugust 2015
OutstandingSimple yet efficient and Comfortable lounge. Small enough to be cozy and big enough to have enough space. Like the view of tarmac/planes. Food is healthy and tasty. Overall a quiet refuge at busy SFO.

Worth a DetourI get to the airport a little early just to be able to relax and have a nice light dinner before my flight..Excellent!
MartinAugust 2015
OutstandingNoodle bar is great. The buffet options are good too. This is a mixed biz/first lounge. Can get a tad crowded but you'll always enjoy space. Good amount of media as well.
ColinJuly 2015
OutstandingSo excited to find out they accept Alaska Airlines Board Room Members! It was after 2pm when I entered so they had stopped serving any lunch, but I was happy with a glass of wine and snacks!

OutstandingSo clean and pretty. Though crowded, it's relaxing. A good stop if you have time to kill.
AnonymousJuly 2015
OutstandingA great place to grab a comfy seat, a cold drink, and some tasty noodles before boarding the long-haul flight to HKG. Looks like they are expanding their facility to better serve the 2 red eye flights.

OutstandingExcellent lounge. Stopped by en route to Seattle on Alaska Airlines, and the staff was very courteous. The lounge is clean with decent food selection (Asian and Western choices).
LindaJune 2015
OutstandingWent before Alaska flight to Seattle. Self service wine and liquor were top notch. Was there in the evening so noodle bar was shut down. Great seating and very private when I was there.
PeterMarch 2015
OutstandingI have used the lounge twice while traveling on early flights to Seattle on AK Airlines. The staff are very friendly, hospitable and professional. All of the amenities make this a 1st Class Lounge.
JoeMarch 2015
OutstandingBusy but nice. A big improvement over Delta's Sky Club. Great breakfast, self pour drinks, and a noodle bar :-)
ErikNovember 2014
Worth a DetourAverage lounge that can get crowded. Food is essentially self service and average. Noodle bar has 3 options. I was not disappointed by the food but not wowed either. Liquor is self serve (good).
