The Monterey sardines, served with roaasted peppers and fingerling potatoes were fresh and flavorful. The gnocchi with pea shoots, pancetta, and parmesan were light and fluffy and Spring on a plate. The grilled radiccio -- my favorite course, actually -- were a wildly unique take on a salad with a basil dressing, more pancetta, the sweet/bitter lettuce combination, and some local goat cheese were great. I was orignally going to have an entree...but forget it! This was a fully satisfying meal.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only beef we had whenThe only beef we had when we arrived is that the doors from the street into the hotel/restaurant area were open, and the chilly San Francisco wind made the place very uncomfortable. We asked if they would close the doors, which they did, and the place then became much more comfortable. However, why did it take a special request? Most people were sitting there with their coats or jackets on before we urged them to close the doors.
Other than the above, the experience was excellent.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, as always. WeGreat meal, as always.

We shared the spinach salad which was plenty for two and very good. I really enjoyed the veal scaloppini and my husband said the day's special was very good (unfortunately he isn't available to remind me just exactly what it was). We shared the chocolate mousse torte for dessert--it was sinfully good. Although a little on the noisy side, we could still carry on a conversation. The decor is old style warm wood trim and comfortable.

Great appetizers.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother good mealAnother great meal at Kuleto's this month. My only surprise was that, having made reservations in advance via Open Table, and early ones at that (530pm pre theatre) they could not accommodate us in a booth and the waiter's excuse was that they were "busy tonight". Well, right-- why I reserved. Also, while prompt at the front end, dessert lagged as the waiter got busy with other tables, despite our informing him of our 7pm curtain. But the food was great and he got the front end right. Kuleto's does tend to be spotty sometimes, but have come a long way since a few years ago, when we were embarassed when we brought friends for dinner--the food was awful, which was a surprise, since we'd been going for many many years. Food's great again, now.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat beforeGreat place to eat before going to the theater. I love stopping for drinks after Christmas shopping.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodWe both loved our meal. Husband had short ribs, I had the duck breast, both were amazingly good.

The food is always great and the service very, very good. We have been to Kuleto's probably five times now and we are never disappointed.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food. Horrible hostess.Loved our waitress, very helpful and plesant - and food was just wonderful. Not cheap but you get your value of food, so no issue for me. Only complaint is the hostess. When I arrived first and checked in, she replied like a robot - "we will sit you when everyone in the party is here". No eye contact. We were a table of two. She could have said it much better like "Please enjoy yourself at the bar and we will get you a great table when your other guest arrives", with eye contact. When i asked her if I could get seated now, she rolled her eyes and reluctantly seated me. You need a new hostness.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways reliable and excellentI've dined at Kuleto's many times, each time an excellent experience.

It's on Powell Street, just north of O'Farrell. A gem, really.11/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
