  • Not worth the money
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    A very large and glamorous space yields asian fusion cuisine of all sorts (Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese) that is tasty but not unlike what you can get at other restaurants for a lot less money. Add lackluster service and a general feeling of indifference to the mix and I don't understand why this would be a destination restaurant. Went for lunch with friends and ordered the lunch special served family style. Since there were 3 of us and the menu had 3 choices for each course we ordered everything. The waiter forgot the 3rd dish of the first course and when we asked him about it brought it told us "don't worry there will be plenty of food" brought it out later and it was cold! It was just a mistake. Why couldn't he just say that instead of giving us a lecture. The rest of the courses were just OK. Too bad. a beautiful space and so much potential. I won't go back.

    E&O serves asian food with a twist, You have probably hear a lot about "fusion" food, but this one does it right. Foods from China, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand etc are all brought together in some excellent dishes. The Satays are fantastic and the Miso peanut sauce was absolutely delicious. Our Pad Thai dish with the melt-in-your mouth rice noodles was also excellent. Throw in super friendly service and you will have a great, casual or dressy dining experience. right off Union Square!

    Fun, trendy atmosphere with an Asian fusion menu. While we did get a reservation the same day, there was a wait for those without one. Had the drunken noodles which had a nice smokey flavor. My dinner companion had the chicken spring rolls and Na'an with 2 excellent dipping sauces. It's obvious they use fresh ingredients and make their sauces from scratch. The lighting is too dim - we and the table next to us had to use our iphones to read the menu but I guess that is part of the atmosphere. A good place for a nice dinner without breaking the bank and a step up from the traditional Thai place. Will recommend to others!

    My sister and I took our mom to San Francisco and this was our first dinner out and we loved it! The atmosphere was great...nice ambiance, crowd, and the menu was varied! We enjoyed a bottle of the Pratsch, and dinner consisted of the chicken lettuce cups, steak satay, butternut squash dumplings, crispy chicken spring rolls, and the dry fried green beans. Everything was wonderful and perfectly cooked...but our favorites were the squash dumplings and the chicken lettuce cups...they were perfectly flavorful! If we lived in San Francisco, we would definitely be back for another visit!

    My husband & I had a really nice meal at E&O Asian Kitchen, but it was marred in a couple of ways. We ordered a large array of appetizers and sides plus one entree, all to share (this is fairly normal given the way that the menu at E&O is structured - it's somewhat tapas-y in its approach, and is great for groups in that respect). With that said, the food did not come in a well paced manner and the pairings that were brought to us were somewhat odd - we expected the Papaya/Cucumber Salad as a refresher after one of the meat dishes but it came first; there was a long gap with no food and then lots of food came; the corn fritters arrived last. The food was tasty but oddly paced and our waiter was lackluster, marring the experience.

    Celebrated our anniversary dinner and tried not to order too much food since we were sharing each dish! Started with the edamame which was a nice portion size and perfectly seasoned with the furikake. Then onto the melon salad special which had 4-5 kinds of fruit perfectly ripened and topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, a really nice textural mix and lightly seasoned. Then, the drunken noodles and to top it all off the mango pana cotta. Each dish came out at the appropriate time and the service was excellent. Also, don't forget to try the strawberry soda, it has some lemon in it and will surprise you with its refreshing flavor.

    Not sure what was happening. Maybe our server was busy somewhere else but the service was not as good as in our previous visits. It took a long time for our food to get to us. After we were done, one of us decided to order some dishes for take out. When the dishes came, they served them on the table when it was obvious that we were done. It felt like the served was not focused. I love E&O and I regularly have meals there. When I have visitors from out of town, I being them there. I certainly hope that this was not the dorm.

    Loved everything we ordered. Time between sitting and water, between water and ordering, between ordering and bringing, between bringing and taking away, between taking away and getting check, between getting check and taking credit card, and between taking credit card and bringing it back for signature -- each "between" was too long. That said, our server was very attentive when he was present, and his advice on ordering to accommodate a food allergy was excellent.

    Had a really enjoyable dinner here with 3 friends. We ate early so it was quiet - it would probably have a higher noise level later in the evening. Food and service were all great! The only thing that could have been better was the A/C. I sat against the left wall and it was blowing hard and very cold. I had to put my jacket over my shoulders. The people at the table next to us said they moved from our table for that reason. The restaurant needs to get that fixed. Otherwise a great experience! I'll definitely be back.

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.
