Diner Reviews
  • "The only negative is the drinks were way too expensive. Our waitress Amy was the best and we yelped her."

  • "bar was buzzing as we made our way through to be seated for dinner."

  • "This was on the SHN list of places to go for dinner. They offered a free appetizer with my ticket stub. It turned out that they only offer two options, neither of them was exciting. The service was slow and the food not very good. $200 for four people and we left hungry."

  • "This restaurant, in the location of Ponzu, is an informal pub. The food was OK. Decor somewhat over the hill....not "clean" looking. I was particularly impressed by an energetic and excellent wait person. I was shocked and irritated by my drink order. I ordered a premium scotch, Lagavulin. $17 which was not the problem. I asked for one cube of ice in the drink. Whne I got my check, there was a $1 charge because, supposedly, one cube meant extra quantity of Scotch. Whaaaaat???? Ridiculous."

  • "Some colleagues and I selected Jasper's for a working breakfast while at a conference. While this is not a hot, farm-to-table restaurant, it served our needs perfectly. Service was prompt and attentive (but not obtrusive). Two of us enjoyed the chilaquiles and the other had oatmeal brulee. Both were quite tasty. I would return to this restaurant on a similar occasion."

  • "We went to a show at Orpheum and wanted a place within walking distance that had good food. Jasper's met that goal for sure. Food was great. Service great. booth fantastic. Will be back for sure."

  • "Great goof --- great staff who recovered a receipt I forgot!"

  • "Super cool and fun with a great beer and drink menu. Server was totally attentive and quick. Food was good but lacked unique flavor. Would definitely return but would try other places first."

  • "I have been to Jasper's for dinner a few times within the past year and have always enjoyed the experience. However, I went this past Saturday for brunch and it was honestly one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had in SF. The waiter seemed confused from the beginning. It took forever for our food to come (we probably waited around 30-40 minutes) and the waiter didn't even acknowledge or apologize for his/the kitchen's error. I've had better customer service at fast food restaurants. On top of that, the food was mediocre. Like I said, I've been here for dinner before and have always enjoyed it, but I wouldn't advise coming here for brunch."

  • "We were visiting SF and the bartender at our hotel recommend this place and we never would have found without and so glad we listened. The food was great, the atmosphere was fun and we just had a great meal."

  • "Stopped in for a quick lunch- service was lacking as there was only one server for the whole place- but it was good food- not excellent but good. I had the tomato soup which was wonderful- the hot pretzel which was lacking. My friends each had a salad which looked good but again not excellent. Good place to catch a quick lunch."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "No one greeted any of the potential customers standing around in the entry wondering what to do. Dining area was haphazard, service was severely lacking except for Megan. I won't be back."

  • "Good food and service!! Too loud to be romantic or family friendly. Would return for a quick meal."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We went to Jasper's before heading to the Curran Theater for a play. The food was pub-centric, but delicious. We had the soft pretzel to start, mom had the cheeseburger with bacon, grandma had the fish and chips, and I had the Derby Cobb Salad, which was very good! The cocktails were great, I had 2 Ramona's- and any place with a champagne cocktail is a winner in my book. The ambiance was comfortable, because you could be dressed up (like we were) or just in your normal street wear, and nobody sticks out like a sore thumb. Although it took a bit longer than we'd have liked for our food to come out, overall it was a great experience."

  • "Heard about Jasper's on the SHN site when we were going to a show at the Curran Theatre. What a fin! Great service and recommendations from our server Jason. Great atmosphere...great vibe. Had the Deviled Egg Trio for appetizer, main courses of the shorts ribs, piggy fingers and Brussels sprout... All were amazing. Jasper's has a high end bar and cocktail menu also. We give Jasper's a 10 out of 10 and will definitely be back."

  • "Despite having a reservation, my husband and I had to wait 15 minutes before being seated. There were many empty tables so I am not sure of the reason for the delay. We ordered warm olives as an appetizer with our martinis but they arrived with the rest of the meal! We immediately asked them to be packaged to go. We were seated next to a long hallway which evidently led to the kitchen, as all of the food was served from this area. It was drafty; a curtain across the entrance to the dining room would help. Food was only ok; steak frite was served poutine style in a VERY sweet reduction making the frite soggy and not appetizing. My husband seemed to enjoy his meal (but I can't remember what he ordered). Needs some polish!"

  • "I've been here twice now prior to seeing a show at the Curran. Its really close. Friendly staff, good food, great drinks. They've always have been able to get out order in a timely manner to give us plenty of time to make it to our show."

  • "The food was terrific a lot of Gluten Free options. The vibe in the rest. is very modern. Nice bar in the front with lots of seating for large groups."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We're from out of town so we made a reservation as a precaution. Didn't need it because the place was only half full. We were still seated at a lousy table between a pole and another couple. Our waiter was hopelessly inattentive and the food, while fine, was nothing remarkable. even if I lived here, I wouldn't go back."

  • "We had a good time at this place. Our food was good. The spicy chickpeas are great with the IPA. I had the braised short rib and my friend had a the j-burger. I would order the short rib menu item again. The only issue that needs improving is our waitress was pretty much missing the entire meal. We waited about 10 minutes before she came for a drink order. Then another 20 for our food order. The spicy chickpeas definitely called for another round of drinks...that I had to walk to the bar to order. I would visit again, even though the service was pretty slow."

  • "Nice place to go before seeing a play at the Curran, ACT, or Golden Gate Theaters. Simple food that is prepared well. It's appreciated they have smaller portions for many entres"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Very interesting menu and great food. Only negative was that no one greets you at the door for lunch and let's you know there is a dining room in addition to the bar which is where you enter. We sat ourselves in the bar until we happened on the back room which was actually the restaurant!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Went for pre-theatre dinner. Food was acceptable and reasonably priced. Service was not particularly knowledgeable and very haphazard. Beware of the four hours of free parking offer. Dinner and the show take 5 hours and the garage basically charges you the $12-$15 dollar special event rate for the one extra hour. The poor kids running the garage haven't a clue how the comuterized system works and everbody just gives up on the various rationales offered and pays the money."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We shared a bunch of small plates. Though I wasn't impressed with the poutine, which was just large, soft French fries, I LOVED the braised short ribs. They were so tender and flavorful. The 5 spice crunchy piggy was okay and I probably wouldn't get it again. The brussel sprouts were tasty and the bone marrow delicious."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were 5 diners who wanted to TALK during our pre-theater dinner. I had asked for a quiet table, and we were put in the back of the restaurant, but as more people arrived the noise level increased progressively. A couple at a small table might have a chance to talk but no larger a group than that. Despite the good food, excellent cocktails, and friendly service, it's not a pleasant experience at that noise level. What a shame."

  • "We found this restaurant when on a weekend stay in San Fran. Dinner was excellent, so we tried breakfast the next day as well and were not disappointed. Great selection and the food was excellent. Definitely try the stuffed French toast for breakfast - it was amazing! Good for large parties as well. Only downside was that it was a bit noisy for dinner, but otherwise it was quite a find. Very convenient if you're staying at the Hilton in Union Square since it's right across the street. Highly recommended!"

  • "Service was disinterested and very slow. Food was ok, not great. Drinks were not very good. This place could use a little bit of polish if it cared about reputation, but I doubt that it needs to."

  • "Had the homemade bucatelli pasta and it was outstanding (with wild mushrooms). We also had the "Crispy Piggy" as an appetizer -- don't pass this up. Just delicious!!!"

  • "We found Jasper's at the last minute based on online reviews. We were very pleased. The cucumber-watermelon salad was a delight, the burger had a lot of flavors built in and the brussel sprouts in bacon and hazelnuts was creative and tasty (I would have roasted the brussel sprouts a few more minutes - I think the best flavor emerges when they are just slightly burned). The beer selection was good. The service was great until a large party moved into our section and no one brought us our bill .... finally caught our waiter and asked for it and then it came promptly."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I found the place to be a bit pricey for what you get. I've had better food at a diner. It was so loud that carrying a conversation was nearly impossible without shouting, not an ideal dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Overall the experience was not that bad. I am hoping that we got the one bad apple in the group so to speak so I want to try and be a little optimistic. Basically we had reservations but when I showed up a few mins early they were not ready for us. We ended up seating about 10 mins late which usually is not a big deal but we had another engagement later so we were under a time crunch. To make matters worse, after seating for about 15 mins, the waiter still had not come by to get our drink order. After I approached the front desk about it, they did correct the issue and even offered a 10% discount for the trouble. Overall, everybody really enjoyed the food and things did pick up after that but I cannot give them a full 5 stars..."

  • "Everyone at Jasper's was friendly and attentive, beginning with the hostess who wanted to be sure our table was "just perfect" and ending with the servers who brought food and drinks. We had a large group, but everyone got exactly what they ordered, as they ordered it, and were satisfied with the meal."

  • "We had a group of 10 for brunch and had the best setup we could have asked for. Our server, Jon, was excellent - really attentive, knew what he was doing, kept up with us but never intrusive, and a really nice guy too! He gets the most kudos on this review since he did make the time we had as a group very nice. Don't get me wrong, the food was good and the price is right, so there is nothing I can say about this experience but good things. What a great place that I found years ago at the SF Chefs event and have liked every time I've been there since. Go have some good food with a nice staff and be happy you did! "

  • "We ate at this restaurant because of its location to the hotel we were staying at. Although the bar was pretty empty, the wait staff wasn't very attentive and once we ordered the service was slow. The appetizers we ordered were good however when we went back for brunch the next morning I was disappointed. My meal came out at least 5 minutes before the rest of my party and some of their meals were cold when it was served. Overall it wasn't a very good experience or value for the cost."

  • "We stayed at Hotel Adagio and walked down the hill to eat dinner. Average beer list - could do with a few more options....pretzel was okay, cheese with pretzel was yum. Grilled cheese with pork belly and a side of tomato bisque was great. Friendly, fast service!"

  • "Comfort food was a nice find and perfect after walking a zillion miles that day. Dessert was fried bread pudding with bourbon sauce and ice cream. Simply divine. Watching the antics of the street scene added some color!"
