A word from 1300 on Fillmore
1300 on Fillmore is a restaurant and lounge that draws on the rich cultural history of San Francisco's Fillmore Jazz District. The restaurant serves "Soulful American" Cuisine, accompanied by a list of the finest California wines.

Soulful American Cuisine prepared as interpreted by internationally recognized chef David Lawrence. Lawrence combines classic French cooking techniques with hints of southern flavors using fresh, California seasonal ingredients. His north-meets-south cuisine includes imaginative creations such as dungeness crab and corn cakes, fresh water shrimp hush puppies, as well as refined interpretations of
southern favorites including macaroni and cheese and okra succotash.

Highlights include a heritage wall with portraits of the Fillmore’s vast array of blues and jazz legends. The
décor is eclectic and familiar, achieved by co-mingling vintage-inspired fabrics with modern interpretations of classic furnishings.

Diner Reviews
  • "Most of the things we ordered were amazing but the main dish of fried chicken was not very flavorful. Also the oyster appetizer have 6 oysters and most of the oysters are tiny with only a few medium sized ones. Overall amazing food though."

  • "Three of us. The mixed green salad was OK (and I had it without the okra). The shrimp and grits: not much flavor in the overall dish, but the grits were not gummy. The roasted catfish didn't have much flavor, either, and there wasn't much catfish on the plate. Two of us had the BBQ burger and both judged as it OK; some heat, but nothing interesting. The chips seemed a bit stale and too salty. The side order of mac and cheese was inedible - the blue cheese completely overwhelmed the dish. The chocolate chip cookies seemed microwaved and the banana cream pie was all cream and not much banana. I like the interior design and the maitre d was great. Service wobbled a bit and was uneven (served the wrong plates). Food is average at best."

  • "Went to the gospel brunch. The bottomless pomosas are great. My food was lackluster (I got the 1300 which was bacon, eggs, and potatoes since I don't eat grits). Food was lukewarm and lacked flavor. Eggs didn't taste like real ones, tasted like a mix. My girlfriend got the shrimp and grits and liked it. The gospel music was great. The quartet they featured was great to listen to. The music, the atmosphere, the service and pomosas are the reasons why I would go back. I will try something else next time and hope for better food. Not worth the price I paid for what I got."

  • "Spent a recent Saturday date night here. The place was busy, but not too crowded. I really liked the variety of quality dishes. Whether it was beef, fish or fowl, each dish had good flavor and beautiful presentation. The service could have been a little more attentive (slow getting water glasses filled, extra napkin, etc.), but that might have been because of two large parties simultaneously dining."

  • "Some of the best soul food in all of SF! Chef Max came out of New Orleans, and he tries to use local ingredients to create updated choices. Our highlights - great cocktails, scallops with candied bacon, deviled eggs, pork chop and burger. We finished with awesome chocolate-filled beignets. Highly recommended, come hungry"

  • "Every dish a winner. We had the Black Skillet Fried Chicken and everything on the plate was well seasoned with an appetizing presentation. I tried the Watermelon & Feta Salad which was refreshing and light. My husband had the Organic Baby Lettuces which comes with cheddar cheese and a very tasty Cider Vinaigrette dressing. Neither salad was overdressed. Just right. My BFF had the Maple Syrup Braised Beef Short Rib with a side of Braised Greens. The very minor complaint was that the onion ring was soggy and added nothing to the dish. Her husband had the special Baby Back ribs with a dry rub. The ribs were tender and falling off the bone but the sauces need a little work as one tasted like French's Mustard and the other like ketchup."

  • "Good (not stupendous) food, and excellent service. However $90 for two entrees, one appetizer and two soft drinks is pretty high. Add tip and parking (not validated) the total came to $120. High by a factor of 2X for what we got."

  • "Been going there for the last two years. They have amazing music weekends. The bar has energy, and the drinks are good. Service is good. But food has deteriorated. Is no longer the same, kind of of very average. In the past it was just a more carefully made. Perhaps is my bad luck. But in the past the food here was more precisely made."

  • "This restaurant lived up to everything it promised to be on its website and via the reviews I'd read in advance. Southern style comfort foods served up gourmet style with creative twists. From salads, to fried chicken, beef short rib and steak - all cooked to perfection with wonderful flavors and sauces added to the mix. the fried okra side was amazing (including the dipping sauce). We shared two desserts - the beignets with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces were unlike any kind of beignet I've had, and the sorbet flavors were intense and flavorful. Great cocktails, very good selection on the wine list at all prices. lovely ambience and decor. One of our best meals out."

  • "Informed wait staff. I let him choose the wine and it was just right. The three of us shared three mains, a side and dessert. Enough to eat. We licked the plates clean. Thanks for a delightful evening"

  • "Great food, excellent service, very friendly and flexible maitre'd. I went with four girlfriends and had a Thursday 7pm reservation. 1300 Fillmore allows its staff the authority to make decisions they deem good for superior service.Two of us arrived after 7 and the maitre'd was very flexible about letting us enjoy our drinks in the lounge area without worrying about the rest of our party arriving. At the table the waiter described the menu and dish preparations with great pride and familiarity. When our group of five ordered the fried green tomato appetizer (delicious!) with four pieces, he graciously said he'd make sure a fifth tomato would be included, and it was. The rock fish, short ribs, fried chicken, and spare ribs were delicious!"

  • "Chef David and staff continue to bring sophisticated Southern fare to the Fillmore, and provide a gathering space worthy of our Sunday best. There are solid veg options, and old favorites have been tweaked: the beignets -- chocolate! -- have never been better. They're the best I've had (sorry Cafe Du Monde!)."

  • "My boyfriend and I dined here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy but not uncomfortably crowded and the ambiance is jazzy, comfortable and classy. The hostess staff was very polite, bar staff not so much.. Club price drinks but well worth it! 1 was enough! We had the Shrimp and Grits as a appetizer (creamy and excellent seasoning). We shared the fried chicken (with biscuits and mash) and the beef spare rib (fell off the bone with greens and mash). Over all it was very tasty. Corn bread was perfect on the side. Nice outting, especially for ppl who don't go out often. Staff was very attentive... once they noticed us."

  • "Awesome experience. Reserved a table for 12 and was given the private seating area. Service was spectacular. Told them we had to catch the Yoshi's show and they had our food ready even though we had one person show up late. Overall amazing experience!"

  • "We arrived early and sat in the bar. My husband sat in Willie Brown's seat. I this acknowledge of "our" Mayor. We had two glasses of champagne. Then we were escorted to our table. I had the cornbread pancake with smoked salmon, capers and molasses. It was delicious. Mr. Don, had the chicken salad. His salad was so tasty that he craved it on Monday. All was served quickly; smelled and looked wonderful. We ordered the bottomless champagne drink which means, glasses should stay filled as indicated. We let our server know that our glasses had been empty for awhile. With one quick apology, our glasses were refilled and continued to be refilled by every available staff person. All and all and by far 1300 on Fillmore is our "go to" place!"

  • "Our first meal at 1300 on Fillmore couldn't have been more perfect. The three of us ordered different entrees and shared the various and absolutely delicious creations from the kitchen, including the Maple Short Rib! WOW! The Southern/Soul influences were notable and took us on a journey away from the Bay Area. That said, our server, George, knew we had tickets to the Fillmore that evening and ensured we were contented diners and "on time" for the show, as well. George, by the way, deserves a raise and BIG TIPS! He was fantastic, and perfectly guided us through our various selections from the bar and kitchen. We will definitely go back next time we're in the area."

  • "First visit to this restaurant for my wife's birthday. It was also during the "Dine SF" promotional period. The menu is very appealing, however we took advantage of the three course prixe fixe three course menu being offered during the promo. We started with bay scallops and delicately fried okra strips on a bay of potato puree (excellent), the main course choices were a hanger steak with small Yukon potatoes and cherry tomatoes, the other a red snapper with wild mushrooms and sautéed spinach ...both excellent, and the dessert a strawberry/rhurbarb cobbler with vanilla ice cream (to die for). All the flavors on each of the dishes were outstanding and the presentation very appealing to the eye."

  • "From the moment you walk in to the inviting lounge/bar area we were impressed to find such a great space and vibe! We had a gathering of 8 people to celebrate a special occasion and our waitress really made the whole experience memorable with her playful attitude and professionalism. The best part was the food of course- fried chicken was out of this world! All of us decided to order one of everything so we could try all the wonderful entrees on the menu and many of the appetizers like the duck pancake, fried green tomatoes w/squash blossoms and the mac/cheese. We were not disappointed. I will be recommending this restaurant to all my friends and colleagues"

  • "We loved 1300 Fillmore! We arrived for a 5:30 seating for Dine About Town, but it was not available on Fridays. We were seated in the dining room and told our waiter Jorge that it was our first time and heard the specials. The chef sent out a double serving of the tempura fried green tomatoes with squash blossoms which were scrumptous. I ordered the signature black skillet fried shicken and it was good, but I like bones in my chicken. My dining companions ordered the short ribs-a spectacular presentation-and the rack of pork ribs which was huge.The banana cream pie was delicious-the beignets-not-just donuts. The space is beautiful and the ambience of the bar-inviting with the old back-lit photos. We will go back and try some other classics!"

  • "The food was great but I have to say the service were excellent. I ordered Dirty rice stuff quail and a fish dish of the day. Both of my entrees have many flavors. I truly enjoy them both. I mostly love the corn bread with honey butter and pepper sauce they offer instead of the traditional bread and butter."

  • "Right away, I knew the evening was going to be something special. We were running late, so we called to see if they would be willing to push our resevation back. Megan was happy to accommodate a move from 7:30 to 8:15. We were seated immediately upon arrival and they had no problem with our request to sit next to each other along the window. The French-Southern flair to the food was evident in the Sweey Corn Bisque, the Litte Gem Salad and the Mac 'n Cheese. The Blackened Catfish and the Fillet were spectacular. We strongly recommend the chocolate cookies as dessert. The design of the space is excellent. We were able to enjoy our meal and enjoy the music simultaneously. 1300 is one of the best restaurants we've tried in San Fran."

  • "I'm afraid the brunch was not great - it had obviously been pre-prepared and then just poorly re-heated and sent to the table. So this was disappointing. We had the Fillmore Bellini - which was yummy, so I think I would definately come for a drink at their bar, as the ambience of the venue was very nice. The Gospel band on the other hand was excellent, will go back just to hear them and have a beverage!! "

  • "We had 9 for dinner and every single one, including the picky food-limited one, was thrilled with the food. The wait staff was informative and attentive and very handsome ( which is neither here nor there for anyone but me.) Did I mention the terrific and tasty FOOD!! Unfortunately it has bad acoustics and the noise was bad so we made the best of it and ate the terrific FOOD! while we talked loudly to each other. I suggest some sound softening materials so that there is NO negative at all!"
