    Had a very good burger on a Mariposa gluten-free bun, with point reys gluten-free blue cheese. Enjoyed it with a gluten-free beer. (Redbridge, at some point I'd love to see O Mission beer offered). Unfortunately, even though we were there early in the evening, they were out of the gluten-free peach cobbler. It was nice to be in a setting where it felt like they were cognizant of what gluten-free dining is. As someone with celiac disease that was relieving.

    Best oyster po'boy sandwich I have ever had. The fixings on the sandwich match perfectly with crispy breaded oysters. I will be coming back again and again for this sandwich.

    Had an early dinner there on a Saturday, and the food was very good. I got the veggie burger and loved it. The service was a little off. It wasn't busy in there AT ALL, but we had 2 orders just slightly off (forgot the gluten free bread on one and the cheese on another). Not a huge deal, they took care of it quickly, but just noticeable since it was so empty. The bread pudding was good, but the homemade ice cream sandwich was AMAZING. That was the biggest hit of all. Wow. I would definitely go back, and still want to try their brunch!

    Seemed short-staffed for what is supposedly a busy establishment. Therefore, the service suffered. Otherwise, it's ok. Typical breakfast/brunch fare. It would have been nice if the waitstaff mentioned there were specials before we ordered.

    We had a tasty meal and relaxed, attentive service. It was pretty quiet- easy to hear my friend across the table- which I attribute to the bar not being full, and it being a Tuesday. In terms of price, I'd say this is a good place for a date or semi-important occasion, but I'm a cheapskate. ;) We were there because Radish is close to work, and we like to compare restaurants with Southern menu items to Brenda's. However, she had the meatballs, and I had the grilled cheese, to both of which we give our stamp of approval (and no comparison to be made!). For those, like me, who aren't into beer or wine, but aren't averse to something alcoholic, Radish has several choices. I was surprised and gratified, and well-rewarded with my selection.

    We had a great time at Radish--everything was delicious, with fresh ingredients thoughtfully and successfully combined. I particularly liked the warm pear salad with added chicken breast. I'm looking forward to my next visit, as I really want to try one of their signature burgers. This restaurant was new to me, and a very welcome addition to the Mission scene.

    I love radish. Not only is it 3 blocks from me but it is also everything I want in a restaurant. The food is great and the menu has something for everyone (from chicken strips to warm pear salads to steak to tofu). The service is wonderful (though I have it 4 stars because this time it took a really long time to have out order taken and to get food. I think they were under staffed) and the prices are great especially considering the quality of food. They also have lots of gluten free options especially at brunch. Ps the bacon cheddar waffle is life changing. Dinner usually isn't too crowded but for brunch either get a reservation or expect to wait 30-45 mins cause the place is teeny tiny. This might be my favorite spot in SF.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    Was there on a weeknight. There were only five tables seated in the place, yet service was innate native and the kitchen was incredibly slow. The food was ok for what it was, but the menu is very sparse...basically burgers and a handful of other things. Upside...it's a very comfortable room, and a good place to have a conversation. And it's a good value for the money.

    I was late for my reservation for 6, but when I called in, Radish was forgiving and told me they would hold the table. The atmosphere is layed back and cool. I ordered a gluten free beer (Bard's) to drink, and a tasty pear, arugula, goat cheese, walnut salad with balsamic reduction -- it was perfect. Other orders on my table were burgers, fries, cheesy mac, 3 bean salad, and a shrimp po'boy sandwich. Everyone seemed to be pleased and dug what they ordered. The service was efficient and knowkedgeable and tentative also regarding gluten allergies. This sweet spot is worth a come back!!

    I have an allergy to Gluten (celiac disease) and this place had a lot of options for me. The rest of my party had no food intolerances and they enjoyed a great selection of delicious food as well. The wine selection was good and the atmosphere was great. I had an amazing homemade, beef burger compete with a gluten free bun...yummy! The service was great too. I would go back for sure, especially to try the brunch which our server recommended.

    I went to Radish with a close friend to celebrate our birthdays during the week. We decided to do the pineapple bottomless mimosa option with brunch and both were delicious choices. The food was incredible. I got the breakfast tacos with steak and that alone would have been phenomenal; but, the breakfast potatoes were unlike any I had tried previously. Everything worked together quite well and I left full and happy. The restaurant is on the smaller side so I would definitely recommend making a reservation. Overall, I had a great experience with great food.

    Three of us had an early Saturday dinner. I had watched the place start with breakfast, then brunch/lunch and more recently dinner. So we tried it out. A real success. The menu features hamburgers and po'boys. The hamburgers were fine, cooked to order. One of us had a gumbo special--good roux and a nice mix of shrimp, okra and sausage. Two modestly priced wines and a wheat beer. Then we shared two deserts, a cherry tart and a dense chocolate cake. All very nice. Great service from a knowledgeable waitress. Even with a generous tip, we were out less than $40. a person. Lots of 20-somethings seem to know this. Noise level is pretty high. We got lucky with parking so our mood was positive.

    This unassuming, understated, esthetical corner restaurant has none of the pretentiousness or preciousness of the Valencia corridor, yet consistently serves perfectly prepared po' boy sandwiched, gourmet burgers, lightly dressed salads with vibrantly fresh ingredients. The wait staff are women in my experience, and refreshingly down-to-earth. This is a true neighborhood gem.

    We had a reservation for 6:15 p.m. on Saturday. At first I thought this would be silly but turns out it was necessary. This place is tiny. They have maybe 8 tables and a bar seating another 8 people. We ordered Farmer's Dinner (roast chicken) which was good albeit a little too salty, and one of their burgers, also tasty. They have a good beer selection, wine - not so much. They had three desserts listed on the blackboard. We ordered one to share but 20 minutes later we were told it "wasn't happening" so we had to go with another one. In the meantime, a large family was seated next to us, reducing the number of other tables to 4 and the atmosphere to a fast food place. There are so many choices in the Mission, I don't think I'll return.

    Dined on Friday evening with a group of 8 ladies for a bachelorette party. Admittedly, bachelorette attendees can be a tough crowd to handle, but the server (Katie) was awesome. Really helpful and fun. The food was perfect as a starter for a night of bar-hopping, comfort food that didn't feel too greasy or heavy. The fried items were done with a cornmeal batter, I think, which gave it a great crunch. My favorite item of the night came out of left-field - I'm usually not a fan of restaurant mac n' cheese, but the side order at Radish was soooo good. Had to tack on those extra o's there to emphasize. They also have a great happy hour. I'm already dreaming of an after work glass of wine and some cheesy goodness on the side.

    We were in the mood for Cajun, and the Cats and Puppies dish caught my attention. The food was excellent. The best po' boy this side of the Big Easy. The wine was excellent, the service was great, the food was surprisingly amazing. We were expecting a casual so-so dining experience, so the quality of the offerings of both wine and food were a treat. Not to mention, the prices were more than fair.
