1300 on Fillmore
Great timeGreat food! Presentation was great. Noise level was very minimal.
Really enjoyed how the server cleaned our table after eating our appetizers in preperation for the main course.
Made our Mothers Day a great one.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's day gospel brunchSunday brunch for Mother's day was a lot of fun. They were obviously very busy, but service was prompt and the music and energy were amazing. Highly recommend the Gospel brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGospel BrunchVery enjoyable Mother's Day brunch. Great music and delicious food. Best brunch dish was the Shrimp and Grits!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLast minute Mother's Day dinnerI had 2 days to plan a dinner for my family and this place was amazing. They were able to accommodate a change in the party from 6 to 7 when they called to confirm the reservation a day in advance. We had early reservations, dinner at 515. We were promptly seated and the sweet waitress understood we were pressed on time and had a demanding 4 year old with us. Our water glasses were never empty and the service was impeccable. Altho the food wasn't highly memorable, everyone seemed to be enjoying their entres. The best part of the meal was definitely the dessert with the waitress suggesting an amazing chocolate cake. My picky Asian parents liked the food and my dad, who never eats anything but Asian liked his steak & potatoes. Will be back!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day Jazz Brunch!We really enjoyed the live jazz and brunch on Mother's Day. Actually, every Sunday the restaurant has a live jazz brunch. The food menu is limited. I ordered the 1300 egg breakfast, which was good an filling. My husband had a salad, which left him hungry. The kids shared french toast and loved it. I had an excellent Bloody Mary with my brunch. The music was excellent! I saw large parties and tables of two. They have a lovely bar and lounge that is separate from the music, but you can still hear it. I imagine the bar scene would be great in the evenings. I would return for dinner and music without the kids next time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite AmbianceThis restaurant will go into my book of 5 stars. The ambiance was wonderful, the service was fantastic. I enjoyed the food the most, everything on the menu was exquisitely different. I highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food - Special occasionThe food was tasty and delicious ! The decor is beautifully done and inviting. The ambiance really sets the tone for the meal , a good date night spot. What would stop me from frequenting here would be the price point. $28 for the pork chop with veggies, no starch. Then $9 for tax , tip, healthy SF. $6 for parking(no validation). So a total of $43 for one plate of food, no drink. I know that high prices come with living in San Francisco but for me it's just too much except for a special occasion .5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGospel BrunchWe were at the 1 o'clock seating and really enjoyed the whole experience of the music and food. Everyone around us were having a great time.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is gorgeous! IThis place is gorgeous! I loved the ambience and the shrimp and grits appetizer was so yummy!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Nice Experience!The service was great; the wine was great; and the cake they prepared for my wife's birthday was great and beautiful. My dinner, Braised Short Ribs, was excellent. We are fans of 1300 Filmore and have recommended it to friends and will return outsevles.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEver good!We always enjoy are time at 1300! Shrimp and grits, oh boy! and blackened catfish, the best!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIn our eagerness to experienceIn our eagerness to experience This Little Bit of Heaven we passed the mystery entrance twice! (a narrow door just on the the corner). The staff: positive, friendly, answered ALL questions–very helpful offering suggestions – cocktails, wine, entrees. From the accurate/ detailed website, being a little early, we started in the Lounge, tried the Caipirinha, the Jazzberry Martini and the BBQ Chicken Sliders. On to dinner, ordered a Special and the Lamb Tenderloin Pre-Fixe and side of Buttermilk Chive Mashed Potatoes. 5 stars out of 4! Lovely cornbread starter, OH! Bonus: Even though 2 parking garages are extremely close, the Parking Angel smiled at a spot just steps from entrance, so a good mood floated us into 1300. Definitely going back!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. However,Had a great time. However, we were sitting near the band. They were great, but my boyfriend had the sub-woofer right next to his ear and couldn't converse with the rest of the table. Other than that it was great!! Good music and good eats.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur greeter was just wonderful.Our greeter was just wonderful. She made accommodations for us as we were late for our reservation due to traffic. We were seeing a show at Yoshi's and she saw to it that we were cared for immediately . Our server George was extremely knowledgable a out the menu and gave us wonderful recommendations. He was also attentive with our time constraint and served us promptly. The food was amazing...wish they were just a little moe generous with the tasty cornbread.based on the food and the personal service, 1300 Filmore will be a repeat for us in future!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing I would changeThe only thing I would change is the dessert menu.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a fabulous dinner. ServiceHad a fabulous dinner. Service was great.
Highly recommend!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FindThis restaurant was a great surprise. We went there only because we couldn't get reservations at Yoshi's next door. Upon asking for help with pairing wine with desired entree, the waiter graciously brought two tastings first so I could decide. Wonderful! Then the salad was dressed superbly. I can't remember remarking on such excellence even compared with Chez Panisse. Ditto the entrees: mine was the Scallops in red wine anise glaze. The scallops were meltingly tender and the sauce subtle and very tasty. The star anise did not overpower but rather mingled perfectly. My partner's Grilled Rainbow Trout was also great. In all, I would definitely go back, over and over!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "Gospel" Brunch was reallyThe "Gospel" Brunch was really more of an easy listening jazz brunch, but pleasant, nonetheless. Upscale Southern Cuisine. Terrific shrimp and cheesy grits. The crowd was nicely diverse and the staff was exceptionally welcoming.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM1300 great San Francisco SpotOverall in this order. We arrived, seating immediately (fabulous), waiters very nice. Drinks good. The food came timely and looked great. I really can't complain. Nice place and of course right next to Yoshi's so if you are going to a venue on the same night then you have a great place to dine befoer the show.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to 1300 on Fillmore and left very satisfied on both occasions. I can't think of another place in the City that offers a similar menu in terms of the Southern influence. That alone makes it a treat - it's nice to veer off the path and have a different eating experience. What makes the menu superb, though, is the variety and magination that went into it. And, the chef delivers. Fresh, delicious, sophisticated but not overdone. Our waiter was knowledgable, pleasant and only there when we needed him.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Gospel Brunch andWe had the Gospel Brunch and it definately exceeded our expectations.
We met family for Easter Brunch, the food was great, entertainment was
awsome. Would highly recommend it for a special occastion. My son made
an announcement to family about their finding out about being pregnant with
twins. The singer happened to be around our table when we found out and made
an extra special announcement. Thank you so much!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a table of 8 and theyWe were a table of 8 and they did a great job of accommodating us! Loved the artwork and the ambiance! Perfect meal for our family gathering.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bar was very relaxingThe bar was very relaxing and a nice place to unwind. The restaurant's decor is beautiful and the food and service were very good. We let the waiter know that we were celebrating a birthday and he brought out a dessert for our friend. However, it was surprising and disappointing that we were charged for this dessert--even after spending over $500 on the dinner for five people!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat soul food in the heartGreat soul food in the heart of San Francisco's Jazz districts.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService, drinks & ambiance!Went for my BF's birthday and was blown away by the service. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our group. The bartender stayed past last call after a few friends showed up after dinner and the lounge let us stay past closing.
The inside is beautiful--low lit and classy but also very comfy. Cocktails and beer (an amber draft, I think) were excellent.
The food was a bit pricey for standard dinner fare, but worth it considering how accommodating the staff was.
Thanks for giving my BF a 5-star birthday!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and TreasuredWas happy to see the restaurant almost full on a Sunday evening. In earlier years I'd worried about 1300's future due to empty tables. This was probably my tenth visit over the years, and as always it was consistently good. We just wanted a light dinner -- fabulous cornbread, the pan fried salmon for me and the vegetarian option (acorn squash faro) for my friend. Solicitous service, as always.1/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
