    We had brunch this past Sunday. We have been to Presidio Social Club before and have had very good experiences. This Sunday though, something was off. The service was very slow and nothing, not the coffee, not the water for my tea (I asked for a new pot and 2nd one came back lukewarm as well), none of the food came to us piping hot. It was all lukewarm. Which is a bummer because the food at Presidio Social Club is very good. It all tasted great but it just wasn't hot. The only time that worked in our favor was it meant the hot chocolate for my 6 year old daughter came out at the right temperature. I don't know if there was timing issue in the kitchen or if our server just wasn't bringing the food out quick enough.

    the food was okay but the atmosphere and ambiance deserves better. The bar drink was good but the drinks ordered at the table were watered down. One was sent back and one was left untouched after the first sip.

    We had a mini reunion of old friends from out of the area. Parking is easy. Food was good, service was excellent but it was really noisy for a Wednesday night so a little hard to converse even in a corner table. Might try the patio another time.

    I always enjoy the simple, yet elegant selections on the menu at Presidio Social Club. The meatloaf sandwich, macaroni & cheese and the daily fish specials are among my favorites. The deserts are a treat and they feature some lovely non-alcoholic beverage selections. I enjoy the history of the facility and the photos of a bygone era that help make the visit even more fun.

    Have been to Presidio Social Club a few times in past 3 months. I go back because the food is excellent, but must say each & every time the service has been subpar. From the hostess being borderline rude, to the server completely forgetting to take order, or a very long food wait, there is always an eternal wait to get a drink, even if it's a simple Arnold Palmer. Loud main dining hall, though room on the side is a bit more civilized. Not sure I will go back again, as there are so many other SF gems to explore. Service at the end of the day will keep customers coming back in a foodie town like SF.

    Meh dining room - although we were seated in the annex - along with ALL the other groups of women diners (and one family with 2 screaming children). Hmmmmmmm. The main dining room was much nicer, but seemed reserved for older couples. The dinner menu isn't very inspired, but the steak was cooked very well, and the cocktails were OK. Service was very nice.

    We've eaten several times at PSC. Generally, it's been pretty good experience though inconsistent. The October 19 dinner was awful.A few reasons: a surly, hostile, uncaring server. She was either unhappy or angry, When she first came to the table and said hello, I said in a very nice way, "I remember you." Which I had. She stared at me and the other 3 people looked at each other and wondered what was going through her mind. The food was awful.My wife had the steak liver that was not edible. I had the hamburger, awful, had requested it rare but was close to medium. Instead of french fries, I asked to substitute a vegetable,I ordered peas ($2 extra."Restaurant policy." Turned out to be mashed peas. Inedible.Server never asked about the meal.

    Food and drinks were great. Service was very good until the end, when they messed up the bill and failed to correctly distribute the cost among credit cards. Also, we were seated in a room with multiple birthday parties and a bachelorette party, which was too loud and interfered with our own birthday celebration. I will return assuming that these issues aren't a regular occurrence...

    We enjoyed our dinner and our sever was attentive. The room was noisy, and got noisier as the bar got busier. The room is all hard surfaces and this also makes it noisy. I would not go on a Saturday night again. The meat loaf was too peppery and the peas were minted which covered the natural flavor. The desserts were good especially the ice cream sandwich.

    We dined at PSC with our three kids for my bday. We had a reservation but were made to wait for about 15-20 minutes after our arrival as the table the host had chosen for us was still in use. With three young kids, the least the host could have done would have been to either find another table or provide a complimentary appetizer while we were standing around. Perhaps a drink for me and my husband. Nothing was offered. The attitude was very much "too bad...the table is still in use." Once we were seated with three starving kids, slow slow service. Food was fine. No attempt on the part of staff to make up for the long wait for the table.

    We'd been wanting to go here for a while and I'm glad we finally made it. The beignets were fantastic, just like everyone says. Brunch was good. Maybe a tad on the pricey side, but the portions were reasonable and ingredients were high quality. French Toast was a hit at the table. Very straightforward, nothing too fancy, but delicious. Croque Madame was also really good. Not too greasy or heavy like many often are. We'd go back. A really comfortable place for a relaxing Sunday brunch.

    Presidio Social Club fits right into the Spanish architecture of the Presidio. It's in the old men's barracks building, but it never looked like this with beautiful woodwork throughout. We went for brunch and first sat at the very nice friendly bar for mimosas. Once our party of 4 was seated at the table we ordered beignets with a delicious salted caramel sauce. They were so good, we ordered two. The menu had some nice eggs dishes, salads, and sandwiches, all reasonably priced. There's a cute porch and I just wish there was some outdoor seating available. But a great place in the Presidio.

    We waited for almost 15 minutes before anyone came to our table, ordered drinks, and then waited another 15 minutes before the drinks came out and our food order was taken. No mention of this from the server either--sometimes just acknowledging the wait makes it better, but the whole meal had a weird flow and was a bit of a disappointment.

    This place has a great concept and decor. I was excited to try it for brunch while on vacation in the area. The menu items sounded delicious but the actual food was not great. The beignets were blah, nothing special. The other dishes were similarly boring. The only stand-out was the white peach lemonade. Yum! Food needs more flavor. Service was ok, but, again, nothing special.

    We usually eat at the bar and always have a great experience. This time we ate in the dining room and our server fell off the planet. It started out fine, but mid way through our meal, she all but disappeared. We literally waited 20 minutes at the end of our meal for her to show up and then another 15 minutes for her to bring our check. I'm hoping it was just an off night, but I think I'll stick to eating at the bar. The food is generally good, but we shared the meatloaf and it was slightly burned and dried out. It's been a while since we've been to the restaurant so I hope this was just a bad night overall and not a sign of change. We'll give it another try because it's always been one of our favorites.
