A word from Luna Park - San Francisco
Luna Park with its casually hip decor, lively bar scene, and delicious moderately-priced cuisine is a Valencia Street sensation, loved by San Franciscans and visitors alike. The menu, mostly French and Italian with a few American and Asian accents, is simple without sacrificing excitement, highlighting flavorful ingredients and presenting food in a way that is comforting and nourishing to the soul.

    While not great the food is enjoyable, spicy noodles with pork quite good-but definitely spicy! The house-made bread is fancy white bread, not worth getting except to soak up sauce. Wait-staff attentive and good selection of beers. Can get way too loud!

    From Brunch to Date Night to a large group dinner to delivery, Luna Park is by far one of our favorite spots in SF. They have a bottomless brunch (SCORE!) and their dinner is amazing. Do yourself a favor and order the goat cheese fondue.

    It's a nice brunch place with consistently hot and delicious food and nice brunch cocktails. The waffles are a stand-out not only because they're deep and fluffy but because other brunch places don't put them on the menu, so it's a rare find for a waffle-lover.

    This restaurant has a policy that if you have a reservation for a large party they will not seat you until everyone is there. I think this is poor customer service considering the fact that my party was there except for 3 people and we would have ordered drinks and appetizers prior to had we been seated. But instead we just ordered 1 round of drinks as opposed to the probably 2 or 3 rounds and appetizers plus food. The host was clueless and socially inept. The server and the food was GREAT!!!

    Absolutely love the food and drinks & in order to pay $16 for bottomless mimosas I would expect they would be a little stronger, which they were. Although, when we got there on Saturday morning, it was a ghost house. Mind you it was only 11 am so understandable. When we walked up to the host for our reservation, she told me that everyone in my party needed to be there before she would sit me. They had one other table that was sat and we were starving. She then "compromised" with us by saying we had to order right away and our time on mimosas started right when we sat down. Rude. The server himself was OK but not much better either. If the service was better, it would be the ideal place to come every Saturday or Sunday for weekend brunch!

    My wife and I stooped in for lunch ordering their famous chicken as well as a couple of empanadas--chicken and cheese. Fortunately, we spotted mushrooms as a vegetable and that made the meal. The savory sauce was a perfect complement to both the chicken and the empanadas. Their roasted veggies were also excellent. Now if the noise level were a bit lower, it would be a perfect place for an interesting lunch when visiting the Mission district with its interesting shops.

    2 weeks in advance, I requested a table for 2 wheelchair users & one companion. Got there at 1PM, our reservation time. It was very crowded & loud! In the 5 years I've reserved there, it was the most crowded I'd ever seen it. They attempted to seat us at a small round table where only 1 wheelchair fit but the other one would have blocked the aisle and prevent anyone already seated to move their chair. I saw a table that would have worked fine & pointed it out but it was the last table they thought of to seat us. After 10 minutes, we were crammed at a small square table but at least it sat both wheelchair users and their companion. Staff should take sensitivity training & learn spacial ability. Otherwise, it was fine. Thanks.

    My best friend and I love this place; the food, the staff, all of it always guarantees we'll have a great time! We use Luna Park as our girls night spot and have never been disappointed. The food has something added to it that makes it delicious and incredible--the goat cheese fondue always hit the spot and the chocolate chip bread pudding with vanilla gelato is delish. Kudos!

    It was my birthday so we set out to do the Dine About Town menu that was advertised online. When our party of 4 arrived I looked at the menu and got disappointed. It wasn't the same. I mentioned it to our lovely server who ask the manager and they accommodated my request. :) I order the pork cutlet which was tender and juicy. My husband had the BBQ chicken which was flavorful, but a little dry. My eldest son order the calamari and kale which was way too salty. As for my youngest, he order the mac and cheese with bacon and broccoli which was out of this world! They brought my make your own smores in a makeshift cake with a huge sparkler. Lovely Luna made my birthday very accommodating and special.

    the hostess Hilary here was the best part, kind, accommodating, we got a great booth for a large group. Sadly the food was really mediocre and very overpriced, 15$ for a veggie benedict, with a unfresh english muffin and small eggs, same story for chilaquiles, which appeared all chips, minimal eggs, very limited menu in terms of healthy veggie friendly options, I know it's a comfort food place but I would hope they increase choices. Also 10$ for one drink is ludicrous. Again, if the quality were up to speed it would be slightly understandable

    Excellent. Was able to squeeze in a reservation for 6 on Monther's Day (!!) and were the first ones in. Bloody Mary's were spicy and filled with vegetables, and we ordered the Trois Popovers to share as an appetizer. Fantastic! The Niçoise salad presentation was gorgeous AND a decent portion, my Tuna Poke was good but too many tomatoes for my taste. Everyone was really happy with their food.

    The appetizers were a hit with our dinner party, especially the "Warm Goat Cheese Fondue" with slices of apple and croutons to dip the heated cheese. After finishing the 'Hawaiian Tuna “Poke”' and 'Fried Brussels Sprouts" appetizers we wondered if we could finish the entrees. In fact we didn't finish the Grilled chicken, Gruyere and Mushroom Stuffed Pork Cutlet and Lamb meatballs entrees. The food was above average in taste and presentation. The service was excellent with easy exchanges for complaints with food or drink. We left a generous tip for our waiter. Parking near the restaurant is impossible on Saturday night, use Luna Park valet service or taxi.

    I don't know why it took me so long to try Luna Park but I am so happy I did. I originally made reservations for 2 people for Easter Sunday but wanted to add another guest last minute when their original plans fell through. Not only did the accomodate the additional person but they sat us in a cozy booth in the back even though we were originally assigned a much smaller table on this busy day. Our server was attentive but not disruptive and made sure our bottomless mimosa's and water were never empty. We ordered the breakfast sandwich, 3 popovers and the burger...all were delicious!

    Luna Park is a perfectly fine option if you are looking for a place to have brunch and bottomless mimosas with a bunch of friends before heading to Dolores Park to spend the afternoon. The only downside is that, like pretty much every other bar/brunch combo in The Mission, the noise level can be way too high. If you are looking to have a more intimate meeting with a few friends or expecting to have a meaningful conversation this is not the place to go to.

    Luna Park was OK but could be improved a lot if they used table cloths and set the table ( the napkins and silverware were simply piled on the table). The menu could definitely be improved, like offer a fresh fish daily and a few more interesting options. There was not much on the menu that could not be prepared at home quite quickly. Not much thought went into the menu or the food prep or the presentation. We were mildly disappointed.
