FAQ
Q: Where is the lounge?
A: Terminal 3, F concourse, right by Gate F2 (formerly gate 75) and the F-1 security checkpoint (that has PreCheck, sometimes).

Q: Can I visit there if I'm departing from another terminal?
A: Absolutely. Security at SFO will let passengers departing from any concourse at SFO go through security in any concourse, even ones that aren't connected behind security. At the moment, concourses C, D, E, F, and G are all connected airside to the Centurion lounge. From boarding areas A or B you would have to clear security twice. For the most up-to-date info, see Connecting in SFO thread in the FlyerTalk San Francisco forum.

Q: Can I visit if I'm arriving at SFO?
A: Centurion Lounges no longer offer access on arrival.

I'll be flying through SFO in mid-October, and I'd much rather buy a salad from a terminal shop than a grab and go sandwich of dubious origin. Maybe the fruit will be passable. Who knows. (I've had some good salads at SFO before, though.)

It's free since you got a Platinum so what's there to complain about? I'll be back at SFO next week. Going to check it out. If it turns out to be a disappointment, then that's what my priority pass restaurant credits are for.

I have food allergies, so it's unlikely they'll have a wide enough variety of items I could have. I assume it's probably one or two sandwich types. I think that's fair to be bummed about.

I'll report back in a few days. I'm going to be back at SFO.

Sure, I'll do that too. Now that Ts 2, 3 and Int'l G are all connected, it's easy enough. Regarding food allergies, there's a Lark Creek in T2 near the AS lounge that has a pretty nice burger. Far as I know, no one is allergic to beef or potatoes?

I will try to post photos, but I think there was zero selection. I arrived at 5 minutes before "closing" and after the normal checkin process I received a paper bag with a sandwich, BBQ chips, a mini-orange, Grandma's cookies, a wetnap and napkin and an aluminum water bottle (no plastic per SFO requirements).

I know I will be in the minority here but I see this as a vast improvement to the now-closed lounge as there was no waitlist, no queue, and prepackaged food that I could bring onto the airplane. Of course, if you want free booze you'll have to find another lounge or dining establishment...

Didn't know about the grab and go option, by found my UK Amex Platinum was good to use the Virgin Lounge, which is pretty good, TBH

What's going on here with the striking food service workers? Do they still have food?

There's a strike? I was there a little more than a week ago and didn't see anyone striking at the lounge.

The food workers started a strike earlier this week, so you wouldn't have seen anything when you were there.

Is there a picket line outside the airport? So no more takeouts?
