Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second vista, and the food and wine were once again excellent, but the outstanding thing was the service. We brought my elderly mother in law, and the staff were so gracious about finding us a quiet and comfortable table so that she had an enjoyable evening."

  • "Food was unique/ delicious. Everything else, poor. Service was not great, pricing was too high, menu was limited, waited over an hour for our dinner."

  • "I celebrated my birthday here and the food was just OK. PROS: The oysters were really fresh and creamy, the ribeye was cooked just right with the right amount of flavor, excellent service, good chocolate mousse dessert. CONS: I did not like the soggy grilled piece of frisée served with your entree, the gnocchi entree was NOT good (bland soupy base, until you bite into a super salty piece of pesto gnocchi. Really disliked this dish.) I've been to many restaurants that serve organic and locally produced dishes, but the flavors here were either too bland or overly salty. :("

  • "This is a return visit and, boys and gross, what a joy. I am a total carnivore, tested and confirmed by Sidha homeopathic Dr., and a pretty good cook myself and their meat dishes are incredible! My husband is not-so-much a meat person and not a fish person, had the trout and Loved It. We went all the way, 2 appetizers, 2full entrees, 2 desserts, cheese plate, and it cost under $115! Oh and also 2 coffees. So, in short, you can get a fantastic meal for a great price. We'll be back alot. Servers are great, Diana especially, and all staff was available for whatever we wanted. If I was Michelin, Radius would get Five Stars. Go or miss out on a real treat. Donna"

  • "Food was good, service was fine, but geeez was it ever loud! Loudest dining room I've ever been in. If you don't mind screaming through dinner, I recommend."

  • "My friend and I received the worst service at Radius of any restaurant I've been to in SF. Our waiter was truly abysmal... to us... to our table ONLY. He was attentive, warm, friendly with the table next to us. Maybe they were cousins? I don't know. What I DO know is that after the busers/runners brought our entrees, our waiter never checked in with us. Had he done so, I would have told him that my entree and the side dish were so salty I had to drink all the water on the table. Also, I would have been able to ask for more water. The owner was nice and gave us free dessert to try to make up for our bad experience. The lemon custard was the highlight of the evening - it was delicious."

  • "$$$'s/ambiance no match. Setting too bar-like dress it up for dinner, e.g., tablecloths, fresh candles or small flower arrangement. Best: small bites!! Started with fresh oysters; Gougeres and fingerling chips, all wonderful. Desserts!! Dark Chocolate Mousse and Lemon Curd Tart, fabulous. Our Mains did not measure up."

  • "Came to Radius during Dine About Town. The DAT menu had a good amount of variety. Everything we ordered was delicious, beautiful, and surprising! My favorites were the Petaluma fried chicken and the vanilla olive oil milkshake! Our service was prompt and attentive. My husband and I are sure we'll be back again soon!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Four us ordered four different entrees and they are we're all underwhelming. The fried chicken lacked seasoning and flavor, the pork was average at best, and the trout was ordinary. To top it off, the chocolate mousse dessert had a horrible sour taste that seemed to indicate that the cream had turned (and not just from the sour taste of the blueberries as they insisted---I think we all know what blueberries taste like). We won't be returning given how many better restaurants there are in Soma."

  • "Pre fixe menu outstanding..interesting. Tried almost everything and good combination of taste ideas."

  • "We had the Trout Mousse as an appetizer. Yum! An order of Mussels was quite substantial..There were 7 that did not open. We asked our wait person for some more and the chef was happy to oblige. This is a Farm to table location..Therefore- the selections are small. There were a few large pparties which made the DR noisy. Otherwise - go and have the Trout Mousse."

  • "We were seated right away. Good food, good service and a wine list with several affordable wines. Eat here."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I've been wanting to try this place for awhile, but part of me thought the food/wine might suffer a bit due to the 100 mile radius restriction. I was wrong!! It was really delicious. We were a party of 7 and we all loved everything we ordered. The space itself was nice, too, easily accommodating several larger tables without being too noisy."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Tried this during Dine About Town event. My party was a group of 5 who enjoy dining out. I ordered the pork chop which was alright and milkshake was plain. My friends had the trout which was good but one was still hungry. The way the table was set was too crowded that when food was served, the server stared at me to rearrange the table setting so he can set the plates down. I don’t mind helping out but the guy didn’t even thank me or say a word. The point of going out is to be served. We shared a dozen oysters, clean & fresh. With so many options in SF, don’t know if I would go back to this place."

  • "Our second time here--the food was fantastic, the signature lamb shank was to die for + the DineAbout specials were great value. Easy street parking. Nice stroll around an upcoming neighborhood with cute eateries, shops, beer/wine lounges & coffee shop."

  • "Our party of three dined here on a Saturday evening. Enjoyed the diversity of the menu--bracingly fresh local oysters, creamy chicken liver pate with tangy blueberry gelee, perfectly medium-rare rib-eye and delicately seasoned asparagus and broccolini. Wine selection could perhaps be a bit more challenging? Excellent service; one member of our party doesn't eat gluten and the server was over-the-top accommodating. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Disappointing dinner: broccolini chips - lots of air, tasteless, bad presentation. Companion had the kale salad - thought it OK/good. The clams seemed a bit overdone - they were tough. The juice, which started out fine in taste, made me slightly nauseous after multiple dips with the bread. My entree, the pork, was overdone and I didn't finish it. My companion had the special, which (if I remember correctly) was the halibut. He judged it as good. The Brussels sprouts were OK - didn't have enough char for my tastes. The lemon curd was judged as good and I thought my cremeux wasn't memorable. Service by Fredrick was fine - he was attentive and responsive. Interior was industrial sterile, which I like. Can't say I'll rush back."

  • "The food and service were outstanding: ordered the chicken liver mousse, ribeye and porkchop. All tasted great and presented well. Service was also great. Very attentive. Love the decor with ample space between the tables so you're not too close to your neighbors. Highly recommend this place! Definitely will return!"

  • "We have a soft spot for Radius as we've celebrated a birthday and engagement there, so we keep coming back for our anniversary and other special events. The food seems to be better every time we go, and I always look forward to ordering whatever lamb dish is on the menu. We love this neighborhood spot and always have a great time!"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The menu is very limited, but the dishes we had were excellent! The prices were too expensive, so we won't be there often. Very Very noisy. We had to shout to carry on a conversation."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This place has amazing food in a really cool SOMA neighborhood. The service is excellent as is the ambiance and energy of this place. The Saturday and Sunday Brunch on the Cafe side is also top notch. Everyone really should check out Radius."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I really like Radius. It hits on all points: really good food, great service, nice space and good concept. Sure, everyone in SF does local. Radius does it really well, too. The ambiance is nice, cool, especially stepping in off busy Folsom. I've been a few times now and I'll keep it on my short list."

  • "The lamb shoulder was simply delicious and all the staff very professional and friendly. "

  • "Creative meals, high quality and fresh products. Good service in general, rude behavior though: waiter asked us, whether we were familiar with tipping rules in the U.S. (usually Swiss people read books about the country they visit)"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "The service was outstanding; our water glasses were always full, you hardly even noticed when wait staff removed plates. They made sure we were all happy, but they were not intrusive. We asked for recommendations from our server from appetizers, wines and entrees along with dessert. She gave good explanations of some of the items we had not had before, and the entree recommendations were right on, along with the pairing of wine. Delicious. All had a grand time, we will certainly be back again! Thank you!"

  • "I've dropped into the Radius cafe several times to get coffee, but because I always came and left from the other direction, I never realized there is this large, airy attached restaurant next door. The surprises kept coming with excellent service and delicious food and wine. We shared the duck liver mousse and pork rillettes with pickled carrots and glasses of a good red wine. I had a pound of steamed mussels with pork belly and crostini w/ rouille with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Everything was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. It was just opening for dinner and it was a quiet. I think this is a restaurant that gets busy later. Tables are well spaced in a large, airy space across from a spacious curved wooden bar."

  • "Very good first experience at Radius and was not disappointed. Menu is a tad limited but seasonal and fresh. Dishes are nicely presented with moderate portions. Decent wine list albeit a tad heavy on higher priced bottles, could use 1-2 lower priced alternatives. Service was good and timely, and server was conversant without being intrusive. The place has a very comfortable vibe and is just about the right size for this area. No liquor, only beer and wine, but just a door down from Bloodhound if you seek a cocktail."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "After reading the reviews we had high expectations. I have to say, we were thoroughly disappointed. The menu was not at all what was represented on line. It was the day after Valentines day and they were still offering the limited menu, which was never indicated. The meal was pricey and somewhat mediocre"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I went here on a Gilt City voucher with a friend (can you say 'wine pairings'), and was so impressed by the food, I returned with my boyfriend the next day. We had the gnocchi (it's in a gorgeous miso-based broth with crispy pork belly). By far one of the best dishes I've had in the last several months. The location is slightly off the beaten path, but with places like Bloodhound, Driftwood, City Beer Store, and Raven right near by, it's a good area that you can make a night of."

  • "Amazing food. Wow. But, we sat in the back near a large party, and it was difficult to have a conversation."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Service: The service we received that evening can best be described as absent. The staff was not rude, just absent. Our waitress was also working as the hostess - perhaps they were understaffed. It took 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order. Another wait to take our order, and long lag-time between courses. In fact, we considered leaving before our entrees arrived. Food: My "Hommage a San Francisco" was tough, chewy, underdressed and under seasoned. It took 10 minutes to flag someone down for salt & pepper (absent.). We both ordered the roasted pork chop. It had been brined too long: it was spongy and rubbery. The sauce had reduced too far and was cloyingly sweet. The side order of carrots were way undercooked. Deserts were good."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "I think my favorite thing about Radius was the wine list. It had a nice selection of local (100 radius) of reds. I would go back just for the wine. The desert menu was delightful. I had the vanilla and olive oil shake, a not too sweet or thick- and my companion had a perfect lemon tart. We will go back in spite of the waiter telling us they needed the table at 7:30 at 6:15. We ignored the jerk and had a great time!"

  • "Fairly decent restaurant in the soma neighborhood. It has interesting takes on California cuisine but it doesn't have amazing execution. If you have money to eat out and just want food, than this place is great. I wouldn't drive 45min-1hour to make this a destination location. The bathroom needs to be cleaned/renovated."

  • "We went during Dine about Town since its a bit expensive. The food was yummy although small portions. They made a mistake in my order and the waiter was very apologetic and corrected it quickly."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Been here a few times now. The night we went the power went out but that didn't phase our server, Frederic. He just kept on serving us, explaining the menu, giving us many candles and was more than pleasant. After a about 35 minutes the power was back on and it was as wonderful as always. We like that most of the food/wine is from within 100 miles but had to give them a bit of lip as Monterey is 115 miles away :-) Always great w/o being pretentious"
    Dined on 5/29/2013
  • "A friend told me this place was the most underrated restaurant in SF. I find that hard to believe. I found the food to be sub-par, the wine to be awful. Not sure who is making the executive decisions for the food or the wine but some thought should me given to each. If I were to recommend this place to anyone it would be the expense account crowd, but since there are so many better options in town I find it hard to do even that."

  • "One of the best meals ever in San Francisco and I've lived here for 20 years! I don't know what they did to the sturgeon and "tubers" but I left my plate embarrassingly clean! It was that good! My friend said her pork chop was out of this world! We started with the beet salad which was quite tasty too. For dessert, we had the very good lemon tart, but there are no words to describe how good the "milkshake" with olive oil and cookies were! Service was superb and unpretentious. I would eat here every day if I could! I'm not sure why others are complaining about the noise. We were here on a crowded Thursday night and the volume levels were fine."
