Last week we told you about the New York City restaurants with the best service.Now we’re taking it to the west coast and looking at the restaurants that treat customers the best in the Bay Area and beyond.

Poor service is the most common complaint among restaurant goers, with 60% of respondents to the most recent Zagat survey saying their experiences were below par, according to Zagat’s Buzz blog.

But book a table at one of these eateries and prepare to be pampered.

This list was compiled from the results of the 2011 Zagat New York City Restaurants Survey, which rated 2,115 restaurants reviewed by 40,569 respondents. Zagat ranks restaurants on a 30-point scale based on food, dec√≥r, and service. Ratings of 26 to 30 are considered “extraordinary to perfection,” according to the company.
