I read some pretty great reviews of this place so I decided to try it. Most people have said that Silk Nail Salon is a really good deal for the price, but after having tried it, I...

Simply the best!!! 10/19/2010

My sisters live in S.F and when I'm in town we go to Silk for mani-pedi's. It's usually 3 or more of us if my neice and Mom come along - and they always accomodate us so we can sit together and chat and be done at the same time. Jade is wonderful and her staff is friendly, pampering and just top notch. The entire experience from the endless candy containiers to the snacks and beverage spread, to the heated lotions and fragrant herb foot bath, comfy pillows and reclining chairs, to all the yummy nail polish selections - just great. It's not an appointment - it's an experience. If you are visiting S.F. -Go to Silk and tell Jade that this east coast fan sent you to her! more

Terrific experience. 1/22/2008

I got a pedicure there just last night and the experience was great. The atmosphere was clean and relaxing, the pedicurist (her name was Jean) was great, very professional. Everyone was was very nice, and the prices were very reasonable. I would go back in a heart beat. more

Best Mani/Pedis Ever! 12/11/2007

I used to go to a more expensive salon (guess which one) but tried Silk at my friend's advice. I'm normally a sanitary freak and am typically afraid of small, cheap nail salons but was impressed by the friendly, english-speaking staff, hospitality (beverage selection), extensive menu, fantastic (high-end) polish selection, amazing massages and clean facilities. I LOVE T's waxing, and Amy and J are so sweet. I am a mani/pedi fiend and go weekly so I like to think I know what I'm talking about. The only problem is that I just moved so it'll be a trek to get to them but it's SO worth it. Pros: Clean facilities, awesome massages, great polish selection and extensive menu Cons: Only one location (open more!) more

Top Notch Bald Crotch 3/15/2007

I have been getting brazilian for years. This is the best place. For 30 bux, you get a clean wax, and its quick. I would dare to call it cheap, but that makes it sound like rubbish. I usually am all red and swollen for hours, at Silk, I wasnt irritated at all. I also usually get ingrown hairs, and have to endure the burn and stink of TendSkin. I never got one even irritated pore. Its been three weeks, and with the exception of a few stragglers, I will brobably have to wait another 3 or 4 before I can wax again. I have never written a review, and I thought I had to share. Pros: Brazilian more

Best Customer Service! 2/26/2007

I have been going to Silk Nail Salon for years and as most of you all know they are great! But I had to most amazing experience there last Saturday that I wanted to share it with all of you. First and foremost I had never been on a weekend before and couldn't believe the spread of food that they had for everyone to enjoy. There was granola and fruit, hummus and pita, cookies, croissants, etc. Secondly, as I was getting my pedicure the owner noticed that I was getting a parking ticket because I was so relaxed that I forgot to ask her to feed the meter. She felt terrible even though it was clear that I could have cared less. As I was leaving admiring my newly manicured nails and toes she stopped me and gave me a gift certificate for a free pedicure. Even though it was not her fault that I received a parking ticket she felt awful and wanted to make up for it. I was more then shocked. It was totally unnecessary, but the best customer service experience that I have had anywhere. I usually only get a manicure and pedicure there on special occasions, but she's made a customer for life. I'll never go anywhere else. Thanks again Silk! more

Excellent Value! 8/30/2006

I have been all over the city and Silk remains my favorite place. They have the little details down (heated lotion, hot towels, candy) and they give the best and longest massage which is my favorite part. Plus, the polish lasts forever, much longer than at other salons. Bottom line is that this is the best place to go, especially considering the price!! Pros: Great massage, nice employees who do not talk amongst themselves!! Cons: Sometimes you have to wait for a spot at the drying station, but never long more

The Best in San Francisco 6/8/2006

Silk is the best nail salon in San Francisco. The owner Jade treats every single customer like royalty. From the saturday snacks, to the candel lit restroom with high end products, to the lavander foot baths and warm lotion to massage you hands and feet. All of it is first class. I don't think I have ever waited more then a minute to be seated (Unless I was late) and even then, I was accomodated. It is a Saturday morning tradition and treat for me and my partner to go to Silk after a stressful week. We go upstairs to the triple platinum VIP lounge (not really, but it feels that way) and drift off to over an hour of pampering.\r \r Highly recommended. Anyone who does not appreciate this place has a complex of some sort. The owner and the staff always make sure you are happy. For the ladies there is high end nail polishes (none of that walgreens stuff) and for the guys, they will buff your nails so bright the look like brand new.\r Pros: Snacks, massage, Attention to detail Cons: Parking, but that is San Francisco for you more

Disappointing Spa Experience. 5/3/2006

For my birthday, my friend treated me to a mani/ pedi at Silk. I was excited to have my hands and toes done and enjoy some QT with my pal. This was my second visit to Silk and I will never go back again. I have never had a worse manicure in my life. It is a good thing the spa has all of their sanitation machines on display because the woman cut me in four places. Besides the bloodshed, she also filed the tops of my nails leaving hatch marks that are visible through the polish. I cant imagine that this is the kind of service that people rave about. The pedicure was fine... I have no complaints in that regard. Pros: decor, snacks, polish selection Cons: manicure, parking, atmosphere more

Tried the rest and am now a regular at the best! 4/21/2006

I love Silk Nail Spa. I've tried many other places and found the best to be Silk. I am always treated well and they give the best foot massages! Ask for Lisa. While other nail places give a whimpy or quicky massage, Silk out performs and does a great job. I am now a weeky regular and find my visits to Silk as great way to end my stressful work week. Coming in on a Saturday morning to a spread of wonderful snacks and drinks makes it even more of a treat. more

The best mani/pedi in SF! 3/27/2006

I've been meaning to try Silk for years, but with all the recent trendy cute looking nail spas popping up I've ignored Silk. Well shame on me! I've been to Teashi, Lavandi, and other places and although they may have the posh look, Silk's know how to do nails. I'm super picky and whenever I walk out of a place I'm not 100% happy with the mani or pedi and feel ripped paying 40-50 bucks with Silks I looked at my nails and they were perfect. The girl even helped me pick out my colors and sampled them on a few nails before she started. The service is super friendly and of course they have snacks to much on. They were super busy, but I didn't feel rushed at all. I'll def. be back as a regular. Pros: mani/pedi, service, cost Cons: none, none, none more

Like Heaven! 3/24/2006

Wow, I've been to several other nail spas in SF, but by far this will be THE place I go to. You are welcomed upon entrance w/cookies, veggie dips, crackers and refreshments. They have a fabulous selection of Chanel, Dior, YSL, Essie, OPI nail polishes. The pedicure was so relaxing with the lavender in the water bowls. All in all this was a wonderful experience. Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Selection more

Incredible value, overall wonderful experience. 3/6/2006

I can't imagine a salon with more enjoyable experience for the cost. Go on a Saturday, when they treat you to a perfect little buffet of fruits, veggies, hummus, and chocolates.. The staff are always pleasant and I've never had a problem getting an appt at my preferred time. The special pedicure starts with a lavender soak and includes a glorious (and lengthy) foot/calf massage that could put you to sleep. I really can't say enough good things about this wonderful place! Pros: Friendly staff, Great value, Unique touches Cons: Iffy parking more

Fabulous 2/18/2006

Great place. Love the atmosphere and the mani-pedi was to die for. Very friendly and the snacks were a nice touch. We were running 20 minutes late and they still let us keep our appointment on a busy Saturday morning. Will definitely be going back. Pros: affordable more

BEST PLACE EVER! 2/14/2006

This is the best place ever! I have tried other salons and none of them compare to SILK. They take their time to ensure you are getting pampered and your money's worth. The staff is professional and polite. They always do a fabulous job and the atmosphere is very comfortable. They go the extra mile for their customers! I have always recommeded it to friends and will continue to do so. more

One Word for Silk - Euphoria 12/30/2005

Silk for me is a treat. The atmosphere, the service and the over all result of the Manicure and Pedicures is awesome. Beyond the Mani and Pedi, I get my eyebrows, legs and brazilian wax done there with amazing results. Silk is worth every penny you spend. What impressed me the last time is the owner walked to my car and put change in the meter without hesitating. I AM HOOKED!!! Pros: Atomosphere,Mani Pedi, Service, Clean , Easy Parking, Cons: THERE ARE NONE! more

Best experience I have ever had. 12/8/2005

I love the atmosphere, service, and quality at Silk. They remember you by name. The best manicure and pedicure I have ever had. I highly recommend you go. They have the best honeymoon suite if you and your partner need a massage. more

Best place in SF 11/22/2005

This place is great. I live on Potrero Hill and so have been going to Mani Pedi, but I got so sick of their rushed and rude yet expensive services that I finally ventured elsewhere. For the same price, at Silk you get a relaxing mani/pedi with a wonderful hand and foot massage. Don't waste your time elsewhere! more

Best mani/pedi in the city! 10/22/2005

Silk is hands down the best mani/pedi experience in the city. Clean shop, assurance that the implements are properly sterilized and a courteous and well-trained staff make this my favorite place. I recently went to Teashi and hated it! If I'm going to leave my neighborhood and spend a little more than the neighborhood shops charge, I want a great massage and to walk away relaxed. I've never been disappointed here and love the Saturday morning treats! Pros: clean!!!, consistent service, great experience more

Great Place 4/28/2005

I've been to Silk several times now and always enjoy my experience. The atmosphere and furnishings are comfortable and relaxing. In my opinion, they do the best french manicure/pedicures in the city! I also agree with a previous reviewer that their paint jobs seem to last much longer than those at other places. Pros: reasonably priced, comfortable atmospher, professional staff Cons: parking can be tough more

perfect pedi 4/23/2005

We went for a bachelorette pedi and we ALL loved it. The bride to be felt like a queen with her feet in a silver basin with warm stones and chamomile. The chairs are super cushy with soft pillows with the most soothing music playing. The beautiful surroundings were made all the better by the nap time perfect temperature of the room mixed with the most relaxing potpourri. The price is more than reasonable for such a truely spa pedi. Pros: atmosphere, price more
