    Dined on 5/3/2014
    The food was surprisingly good for a nightclub. We came specifically so we wouldn't have to navigate our way late at night to get here. The portions were actually large, especially if you get the shared sizes. Our waitress was very nice in describing honestly the size of the plates for certain items so we ordered just the right amount. I don't know if it was just the night that we were there, but being in our early 20s, the surrounding patrons had some older guys that kept looking at us during our meal and then eventually creeped my friend out when we were dancing (but the review for the club would be something different).

    The place becomes a dance club later in the evening, so it has that type of club-like "feel". But it's a pretty cool place. It's downstairs, so there are no windows. The food was very good. My only complaint (minor) was that our server wasn't as attentive as we would have liked.

    We had a blast there at infusion lounge on 3/28/14. We had looked up places to dance and eat close by to our hotel and this was the first choice we chose. It was very convenient because we had stayed across the street at parc 55. I had called to switched the time we were scheduled for our reservation dinner and the person who answer was very very nice. She changed it very quick for us. We all got there and they were quick to seat us. The food was great and the desert was awesome. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.

    The food was something short of mediocre. My wife's salmon was devoid of taste. My steak was fatty and tasteless. Service was painfully slow as waiters were all serving a table of a dozen or so 20-something young women who we're squealing and celebrating and totally oblivious to the fact that other people were in the room trying to enjoy a quiet dinner. There are many wonderful restaurants in SF. This is definitely not one of them.

    This place is primarily a club and opens up for dinner before the night life kicks in later. The food was slow and cold - service was inattentive at best. The one saving grace was decent cocktails. If you are looking for a nice meal, save your money and go elsewhere before coming here for fun later!

    I've been to Infusion a few times prior to my most recent visit. Although I had an overall positive experience each time - including this time around, I'm curious to know if they have a new executive chef? The reason I ask is because I noticed that some key/favorite items were missing from the menu (most notably the amazing fish that they once served). Also, the overall flavor palette seemed to lean more toward healthy offerings like the black "fried" rice - which, although good, was missing that true fried rice flair. It seemed more like steamed Quinoa with warm diced vegetables. Vegetarians would probably really like it. The sweet and sour pork was made with meatballs. Interesting and pretty good. Friendly, Fast, Attentive staff. Try it!

    So I went to Infusion for dinner and maybe stay for the nightclub. We only had appetizers and decided this wasn't place for dinner. Specially for my boss' birthday. The bartender got every drink wrong. Therefore getting us upset, then the waiter never came back. I had to go get my own tab at the bar since the waiter never came back.

    Prix-fix menu was actually a very sub-par Chinese food buffet and was absolutely not worth $25 a person. It was full of basically appetizers and grotesque shrimp cakes. We had a large party and a very high tab that was charged a 20% gratuity for poor, slow service (again, at a buffet). Then, the restaurant turned into a club with a mediocre DJ. Also, the "VIP" area was half the size of the club which left the rest of the floor overcrowded. I hope no one else falls into this trap.

    I made reservations here for dinner on my birthday with a group of 6. I had never been to Infusion lounge for dinner or for the club part before. I wrongly assumed the club and restaurant areas were separated. I thought it would be a good vibe, music, drinks, etc. Instead I walked into a completely empty "club" and felt so weird for inviting a group of friends to dine in this "cave" that seemed like wasn't even open yet. Don't get me wrong, the decor was amazing. However, i guess 7pm is too early for dinner. I wouldn't eat here again for dinner. Unless maybe i went there for s super late dinner and we werent the only ones inside... The food was tasty though!

After 10pm the restaurant closes and it turns into a club. We only stayed for a short time after it turned into a club, but it was a lot of fun!

    Dined on 5/24/2013
    We booked our reservation because we thought the idea of dining at the same location as a dance club was a great idea. Unfortunately, our experience was less than to be desired. The food was over-seasoned and over-priced compared to the portions. The dining area was closed down before we had finished eating, and was converted in to a VIP section. We stayed for a while after the DJ started spinning, and noticed that the VIP areas weren't occupied. Therefore, we had to question the reasoning for the staff to shuttle us out of the area. Overall, we were very disappointed.

    This is not a restaurant! This is a nightclub that puts tables on the dance floor and serves food taken from the freezer section at Costco. Was greatly disappointed in the quality of the food and the ambience. I assumed this would be a restaurant next to a club but I was wrong. While we were still eating (had to be Valentine's Day to boot), they were setting up for the club opening. Probably would be a great nightclub experience, but a terrible dining choice.

This time we ate in the dining room...much more intimate but equally ambient. The food was great as expected, the service very good. This is a lounge and dinind area/dining room that gets quite active later in the evening..we dined when they first opened at 6 pm. I would definitely go back.

I would only recommend this area (bar area)early in the evening as I'm sure it gets much more active as the night progress. The dining room as mentioned looks very intimate and quiet..I will try it on my next visit to this terrific venue. The food and service were excellent. All around a very special place to celebrate! P.S. The edamame (sp) is the best...a must try..
