    We had a truly outstanding meal here. The setting is gorgeous, the service was super friendly and attentive and the good was so stinkin' good. Our picky 8 year old devoured the Indonesian fried rice. I loved the tea smoked eggs and cuke papaya salad. Oh and the eggplant! Drinks were great as well. We will go back the next time we are in SF.

    A friend and I had dinner here before heading to a nearby theater. We had the special soft-shell crab (excellent), chicken lettuce cups (too salty for my taste but still good), and papaya salad (not complex in flavors but a good, tart complement to the other dishes). We sat upstairs and had a nice view of the entire restaurant. Service was attentive and nicely paced. I definitely recommend eating here for lunch or dinner if you're in the area.

    The high light of the meal was the roasted green beans. The restaurant suffers from what I'll call Jack-in-the-Box-itus: everything looks and sounds better than it actually is. Too bad since I really wanted to like this place. I especially like the downstairs area. Not that any of the food was bad - just lacked anything special.

    The food was very good and the restaurant nice, although louder than I would have liked. The server was slightly cool towards us which slightly dampened the evening. Overall we had a good meal at what felt like a smart, classy restaurant. (The cocktails are very good.)

    Overall we enjoyed our dining experience a lot. The spicy pork sandwich was almost perfect...the vegetable mixture had the wonderful complexity of the best Vietnamese spice mixture and was a perfect tart foil to the spicy pork, simply needed more of them to make the sandwich perfect. Friends enjoyed the build your own sate plate but the shrimp salad with fruit was a total miss. Strange flavor combo and not enjoyable at all. Would definitely go back to try other dishes and have the pork sandwich again.

    We dined here several years ago and enjoyed it, so we revisited since we were at a nearby hotel. We remember it being better. The decor is still clean and modern, and the service was fine though a tad slow on taking orders but rushed on clearing dishes (two different people doing each task). We enjoyed a promising start with the excellent prawn salad--fresh, light, perfectly prepared--and the tamarind and hoisin spareribs were good. However, the flatiron steak and the Indonesian fried rice were so-so. The rice was very salty, and the steak was rather chewy. Dessert provided a nice finish--trio of unique sorbets. All in all, the meal was okay, but in a city with so many incredible restaurants, E & O was a bit of a disappointment.

    The food was sensational and the decor and ambiance was lovely, but our server was so inattentive that the evening was a disappointment. Once he took our order we were largely ignored. We didn't receive our second drink order until our food was just about gone and only because we asked another waiter if ours had left. He brought us dessert menus and twenty minutes later had not come back to see if we wanted to order anything. By that time we decided we'd get a treat somewhere else. It was a celebratory dinner that left us feeling a little less celebratory. We will be back, but we'll be on the lookout for this server and avoid him. Incidentally, we noticed a few other tables had the same issue and it wasn't that busy.

  • A Disappointing Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    I usually really like E&O, but this visit was a bit disappointing. The good thing is we had a lovely table upstairs overlooking Sutter street. It was a beautiful day, so that was lovely. And it was a lot quieter upstairs. Our waiter appeared disinterested and disengaged. He apparently was too busy to really want to take care of us (and the upstairs was practically empty). At one point I found a fly floating in my wine, and he never came over to apologize or to see how I was doing. Another waiter handled the situation. And the food was nothing special. Except for the service, which was a 2, the experience was a solid 3.

    After taking our foodie friends here for dinner on several occasions, we needed an excuse to see what lunch was like. Our thirty-something kids joined us, and the food and service did not let us down. Though relative quiet and calm during the mid-day, the imaginative food and great service now make this one of our top spots for lunch. With or without the kids.

    We had a lovely anniversary dinner here last week. I'd noted on the OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, and we received two complimentary glasses of Prosecco. The Asian fusion menu is interesting and fun, service was attentive, the atmosphere is congenial. My only nit is that there were two errors on our bill which added a total of $12; it was quickly fixed. This is one of our favorite places to eat when we come to the city.

    This was my second visit to E&O, both occuring in 2014. The food and ambiance was outstanding both times. The waiters were very informative and the bartender was great to observe his skill. I have now tried at least 10 dishes on the menu and they all were fabulous! One small suggestion is to spice up the Edemame-- it was rather bland compared to other restaurants.

    When our party of 13 arrived for dinner, we were surprised and delighted to be shown to a small private dining room. It was the perfect spot for our multi-generational meal. We could hear each other, but no one could hear us! The food was terrific as always. (Two words: corn fritters) And our server was wonderful, especially helping us navigate some allergy concerns. Couldn't have had a better time. Thanks, E&O!
