The end.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur French FriendsWe wanted to show our French visitors the Mission District so we started with dinner at Beast and the Hare before walking the streets to see local clubs etc. They loved the Wild Hog wine and bacon burgers!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYes its definetly the hare!Its the hare I tell you loved the rabbit polenta, the trout wasnt bad either, but the hare won this race. We had a mix of the appetizers which were good perosonlly I really liked the duck. The bone marrow was a nice little added touch to mix. But, overall I would have to say the food was very well prepared. Place was not too crowded, so I guess that made things a little more mangeable for the waitresses. Speaking of ours was very versed on the menu and what choices would go together for a better dinning experience. Kudos to the staff!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery rich food and great beer listIt was a great pre-show dinner for Marsh theater. The food is very decadent and rich...we had the charcuterie board with rabbit ciccioli, smoked duck breast (yum!), and pate de campagna. It was all good. Then the bone marrow gratin that was omg rich and delicious with excellent onion relish condiment to balance out each fatty bite. The place is popular and we got there early and service was quick. Burgers were ordered medium and came out medium-well, very cooked inside (not a hint of pink) and charred outside. Good fries.
The only thing to watch out for is they mis-counted our beers (they fixed it) and they charged more than the menu price for each one (they wouldn't fix it). Great food and will be careful to check the bill next time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Rabbit PalentaFoodies spot. The Rabbit Palenta was out of this world, one of the best meals I've had in SF over the 9 years I've lived here. One of a kind.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe placed our selves in theWe placed our selves in the hands of Aurelia after a short chat. We were glad.
She Rxed Her favorites, suggested we share it all & brought it at a nice pace
and didn't hang around too long .
Very Cool & different. You can really taste the difference between all
the meats due to restrained use of spices. All the pickled things are an
& best of all there aren't any vegetarians or vegans bothering the waitstaff
We'll be back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGastro pub overpriced.So,
Somebody recommended it. It seemed like a nice idea.
The butter lettuce is small and oily. By that I means they drench the salad
in dressing. Which is I guess OK for a pub but I like non drowsed salad.
The house Charcuterie is very nice. But basically this is just a board with some cut meats,pickles and toast.
The Kobe steak was $27 for a few pieces of meat.
So all in all, if you want some fancy food in small portions at a pub.
Then it is all you.
Personally since I can cook and I am especially gifted in slicing salami and pastrami while serving myself a beer. I don't think I would go back due to the high prices.
However this place is miles and miles better than the usual pubs/bars you have around and is an ok mix alb4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the staff was very good. The restuarant is relaxing. It is a place that I will return to and recommend to my friends.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!!I went to this restaurant on a Friday evening with two other friends. The restaurant was very full, so make sure you have a reservation to avoid disappointment. Even though they were very busy the waiters would top up our glasses constantly with the drinks that we had on the table which was nice. The food was so good! We had a trio of meats for starter (duck, salami and the rabbit pâté) and then the rabbit ragout for main. It was absolutely delicious! Super flavoursome! Unfortunately we had no room for dessert because all of us cleaned our plates! Definitely recommend!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful charcuterie andWonderful charcuterie and rabbit with polenta. Want to come back to try the duck frites I saw at the next table.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure you make a reservation.Make sure you make a reservation.

We ordered the charcuterie (highlights: whipped rabbit and pâté; lowlight: lardo) as well as the rabbit ragu (subtle but exquisite flavors) and the lasagnette (homemade pasta with to-die-for duck bolognese). No room for dessert, but those looked good too. Yum!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable meal!The rabbit was the best I have ever had. The osso bucco fell off the bone and was absolutely delicious. We drank a bottle of very well priced Sicillian wine that was perfect with both dishes. Finished off with caramel salted pan a cotta which was to die for! We will definitely be back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great find. The smallWhat a great find. The small menu allowed the chef to excel. The rabbit was outstanding-wonderful blend of flavors-very rich-a great main dish to share. The kale & squash warm salad was different and tasty. Beer and wine selection was thoughtful-really complemented the food. Excellent choices of pate, dried meats. We will return.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
