    It had been on my list to go to Bubble Lounge since before I lived in San Francisco. We finally did it the other day, and were not disappointed. While it may be a happening joint after 9PM or 10PM, we got there at 5PM to enjoy some late afternoon bubbles. We were not disappointed. Their Sparkling cocktails were well made, and quite good. I did also have a regular cocktail, and it was quite nice indeed. The little appetizers we had were quite flavorful. There was a salmon one, a cheese plate, and some spring rolls. All quite good. We'll be back.

    Dined on 2/25/2014
    I picked this spot because of its location and the fact that it specializes in sparkling wine. Although unimposing from the street, its interior is wonderfully warm and moody. Leather chairs and brocade couches define seating groups around "coffee tables," but management is cooperative about any rearranging you care to make, e.g., to accommodate larger parties. We selected flights of sparkling and 5 different tapas and found each better than the preceding one. The hearts of palm were particularly tasty, but my favorite was the fontina and wild mushrooms on toast. Prices were reasonable for the quality served, and we would not hesitate to return,

    The seating was great, allowing for guests to stop in when they got off work, which is a plus for large groups. My biggest issue is with the service. Be prepared to use a credit card to make a reservation on a Friday or Saturday night, while also committing to spending $20 per person. On top of that, we were approached by the waiter upon arrival to provide a credit card to "hold" the table (I am guessing to avoid folks drinking and dashing). If you don't cancel in time (unclear what this means) you will be charged $10 per person. Additionally, upon checking out, you are only allowed three credit cards per table, so make sure to bring cash. With all the payment rules in addition to average service, I found this place to be a bit overrated.

    I threw my GF a surprise birthday party here and she loved it. Great live band and catered cupcakes from Suzies. Atmosphere had good amount of background noise for our group to still converse. Then after we had a few drinks the lounge turned into a club and we we able to grab a nice spot on the dance floor because were there well before the rush... My girlfriend was so happy with everything so happy with everything! I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking to celebrate an event or just wants to have a great time at an upscale lounge.

    I've been to the Bubble Lounge 5 or 6 times since September of last year and every time I'm there I receive excellent service. Also, the food and atmosphere are always on point. I always recommend this place to friends, coworkers, and clients of mine. The only thing I could possibly have an issue with is the noise level. It's a busy place, so I understand that the noise level would get fairly loud but, sometimes it's really hard to hear what anyone has to say. Regardless, I love the Bubble lounge and can't wait for my next visit.

    We recently came here for a birthday event. We had reservations and were late to them (we called ahead and let the lounge know) and they said it was no problem that they could move our reservation to a later time. We really appreciated the no-fuss adjustment and will definitely be going again sometime soon! Great champagne/cocktail list as well.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Great pre-dinner drink spot : gorgeous bar, romantic lounge area, nice menu of tapas & small plates. Our service could have been better - a bit cold and impersonal, quick to jump straight to push the high-priced bottles (whoa there, have a bit of finesse if you're going to pull that move...). Small plates were delicious, particularly the charcuterie plate. The drink menu felt as though it could be refreshed just a bit, but the bartenders do a nice job with the classics.

    Came here for a Bacheloertte Party -Bride to Be has a serious love for Champange, so this seemed a natrual 1st stop for the evening. Our party was small (4 people), & it was the perfect size for the tapas style meal Bubble serves. I wouldn't recommend a group any larger, you wont fit well into the lounge tables they have set up and the food will be scarce. Champagne flights are definitely a better deal than getting a bottle. Service was great - very attentive and knowledgable about the sparkling wines they offered. This is definitely a "special occassion" sort of place! Beautiful decor and great music for a really fun vibe, but the bill at the end was $268 for 4 people. For the right occassion/right group, I would happily come back.

    Dined on 4/17/2013
    was looking forward to a great evening after all the recommendations for this place, only to be disappointed. Service was terrible. We ordered a cheese plate at the same time we ordered a flight of champagne. After the 2nd glass was gone, we still were waiting for the cheese. The server came by and said" o you have not received your cheese, is that correct" it will be a few minutes. more like 10. So we basically waited a 1/2 hour for a plate with 2 slices of cheese. The truffle popcorn was wonderful. They had 2 servers, a bartender, the manager, and 2 floaters, and still the service was lousy. at least for us. other patrons seemed to be taken care of.

    Great night! Reserved a table for 9:15 with a 2 hour cap for my best friends bachelorette party. Drinks were strong, good champagne. Had the strawberry chocolate fondue. The vibe is vintage but modern. Great crowd too (Saturday night). Servers were attentive (until about 10:30, you may have to hunt one down the more crowded it gets) and knowledgable. Music was tame house. Gets alive around 10:45/11. Definitely a must go! I'll be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    our waitress was very frustrating to work with. Each time she would come to our table for orders we'd ask her a question and it literally took 20min each time just for her to come back 20 minutes later to tell us that that item is was not available. Needless to say I had reservations at 8pm and we didn't order till about 9:15 pm due to the run around. Food got there around 9:45pm and due to the 2hr limit they have for the reservation they moved us downstairs by 10pm. Everyone got drinks at the bar and not from our waitress since it was taking her so long with everything else. Other than that, food was delish, ambiance was just right, and music got everybody dancing.

    11:30 reservation was accomodated immediately. It was difficult to find a lot of drinks that suited our party's budget. I suppose that's why it's best to be ballin' or come on a special occasion. Dance floor was closed at 1:00am, so unfortunately I was unable to experience that loud, crowded, fusty hip-hop dungeon.

    I was with a group of eight people and it was pretty nice. When I arrived for my reservation at 10 pm, I was seated at area with couches and a table. There were not a lot of people at first but the place slowly filled up and it was crowded. The dance floor is downstairs and people chat upstairs. Sometimes they open the back for the upstairs area, but on the night I went, it was closed. There is a bar upstairs and downstairs so alcohol is available either way. The service was nice and the waitresses keep coming back to see how you are doing, which was great. Overall, a great experience.

    We had a small group of 8 for my wife's bday on a Saturday night. we missed our reservation by 30 minutes but they sat us immediately anyway. I wouldn't recommend missing your reservation because it was very busy. We probably just got lucky. We had a great time. Drinks are pricey but you should expect that from a nice location like this one. If not, then just go to a local dive bar. Crab cakes and mini-burgers went well with the champagne strawberry mojito. We also tried several other cocktails, the best was the Cashmere Silk. Don't order the Old Fashioned, it'll melt your lips off, and not in a good way. Overall great experience for our group.
