Change it up
When I'm looking for something out of the usual for lunch I hit Wexlers. They offer a Southern style BBQ twist to chicken, fish, lamb and veggie sandwiches. Great appetizers (fried green tomatoes) and irresistable desserts too! Plus they have Racer 5 on tap.

Reliable lunch gem
As always, a real pleasure. The staffis so laid back and yet so professional. The food is outstanding. Slight wait, even with he reservation, but worth it.

This is not traditional barbecue.
This is not traditional barbecue. In fact, it's not really barbecue by anyone's definition. The menu is a bit confusing at first because I was not seeing what I expected. You need to open up at Wexler's. Get the eggs. Eat the pig. Save room for dessert. This place is great!

We ate at 5 p.m. -the first patrons. Food was wonderful - nouveau BBQ. The Scotch Eggs - signature dish The bar drinks were amazing - highly skilled bartender. Come for drinks and appetizers. Smoked clam chowder had the clams and potatoes in the bottom of the dish and they poured the creamy broth from a hot kettle into the bowl at table!! I had the Pork two ways dish - best pork tenderloin I've ever had along with pork belly (basically bacon with the fat attached). Order sides of veggies and salads as nothing but meat and possibly potatoes comes with the dish. Husband had salmon-loved it, kids had short ribs. Good but they wanted traditional BBQ. the Banana cream pie was best I've ever had.

I had the little gems salad
I had the little gems salad and the BBQ Brisket Bahn Mi sandwich and both were outstanding. The sandwhich came with a macaroni salad, which had a real nice smoky taste. Way better than Mom used to make. When the restaurant is full, it can get pretty loud but not overpowering. Service was attentive but not obtrusive and the final check was reasonable. Overall, I would gladly recommend the restaurant to friends. I'll have to try the dinner some time.

First time here and I will be back. Beautiful ceiling decor and terrific service. The place wasn't packed but had quite a few larger parties at the time. Food is wonderful and the presentation was great. Definitely recommend the bartender drink special for a fun twist to your dinner.

Great little spot in the financial district. Restaurant is small but if you make reservations in advance you can reserve a large table for a group. Great spin on American BBQ all dishes were tasty and filling. Save room for dessert I loved their inside out rootbeer float

Scotch Eggs are amazing.
Wexler's is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Their Scotch Eggs are the very best and the pork belly is out of this world. I highly recommend this place, check it out.

We went for a coworker's departure, and the food and service was great. Very small setup, but very comfortable and chic. I had the New Orleans Flounder Po' Boy, which was heaven. It was prepared like fried catfish, but probably not as many calories. They also had vegetarian choices for my vegan coworkers. It's a short walk from our office, so we will definitely be going back.

Tasty, but not overwhelming
After reading some of the other reviews, we were highly anticipating our lunch. I was particularly interested in trying the pulled lamb sandwich. We shared a sandwich as well as a smoked trout salad. The meat was very tasty and the Acme roll was awesome, but the amount of meat on the sandwich was disappointingly meager. The salad was also extremely tasty, but again the portion size was not amazing. We enjoyed the meal, but I'm not sure it was the best value in town.

Creative Menu, good food
Wexler's has a very interesting menu that puts a great spin on BBQ, such as Pulled Lamb or BBQ Brisket Banh Mi sandwiches. The Bourbon Banana Cream Pie for dessert is not to be missed.

Great Downtown Spot
I love this place. I've been coming here since they opened a few years back & have brought clients and friends there. Reasonably priced for downtown and nice atmosphere.

Having just come from Austin it felt kind of silly to be eating such similar food but more expensive and smaller portions. But still, for San Francisco it is good BBQ. The ribs were delicious. We all cleaned out plates. I would definitely come back if someone else is paying.

Go for the food!
Small, spare decor, but the food is outstanding, and just that little bit different; a little taste of the South, New Orleans variety.

Our food was excellent. Menu was limited and decor was simple.

love this place
Wexler's is my go to spot for work lunches down town. It's reasonably priced and feels like a neighborhood restaurant instead of a factory like some of the other spots in the financial district. I've heard the brunch is great, but I haven't been able to make it down here for that yet.

Foodie paradise- BRAVO
We had the scotch eggs... wonderful runny goodness. Then the bean salad, it was lovely and crunchy and the tarragon dressing was perfect. Also had the octopus starter and was amazed. It was floating in a cucumber broth that was like a gazpacho and was cooked to perfection, not chewy at all. our entrees were the sea bass, chicken, short ribs, and Cauliflower steak.
All were cooked perfectly. My one suggestion would be to add some color to the cauliflower dish, red pepper or some greens would have been better than the smashed fingerling potatoes that I did not care for. Desserts were good. banana pie,was Delicious and the inside out root-beer float was so yummy. I wanted to love the pecan pie, but it was just over cooked and too hard.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is excellent. We had an appetizer (a smoked squid which was sublime), two entrees (fish and pork....both excellent) and dessert. The peach pie was ok but the banana cream pie was nothing but a dream. We also got 2 cocktails from the bar which were memorable. Truly this place is worth a visit

The only reason I didn't rate
The only reason I didn't rate the food five stars is because the cauliflower "steak" was underwhelming... a little undercooked and lacked flavor. Everything else we tried was stellar. If you go, you must order the short ribs. They may be the best I've ever tasted.

An Excellent Business Lunch
Great lunch, reasonable prices, not too crowded, excellent food and the coffee was outstanding. Service was great too - we could have been out within an hour, but we were enjoying our conversation and the experience so much, we stayed a little longer.

Wexler's remains a FiDi favorite for lunch and dinner, or after work. Owner is generally present and engaged - service, food, and drinks are all consistently excellent, as you would hope. Unique twists on some traditional dishes with smoke and bbq flavors in just the right places, but not on every or used in an overwhelming fashion. Great cocktails, and wine and beer are served as they should be.

Best "pulled" lamb burger ever
The restaurant has a very sleek, modern, but minimalist feel. The food was the same. I had the "pulled lamb" sandwich with picked cabbage on the side. It was a very simple plate, but really really good. The flavors were perfectly balanced and the meat was butter soft. I would definitely recommend Wexler's.

The service, ambiance and food at Wexler's is enjoyable every time and I will definitely go back in the future. I've tried something different each time and have not been disappointed!

I had lunch for 4 @ 12pm on a Thursday. Good good, good service, great lunch with awesome coworkers!
One of us got our shirt splattered with sausage during consumption, and tha waiter overheard and brought us soda water and a napkin. Awesomely attentive.

You Don't Know BBQ
Wexler's will open your eyes to upscale BBQ and Southern cuisine. I had no idea that it could be so refined. A major gem in San Francisco.

best scotch eggs in the city
I've been here several times. The scotch eggs never disappoint. If the pork chefs selection is a pork chop or loin you should get it. The salmon is my favorite entree. The owner is very nice and the bartender is attentive. The other foh can seem a bit unenthusiastic. OOverall. I love the food and I think it's a winner.

4.5 stars. Consistently delish, elevated take on BBQ with a delicate, sophisticated touch. Scotch eggs are a miracle. Everything tastes even better than it sounds, except maybe for the pedestrian pumpkin pie. If you don't like bananas, you're out of luck in the dessert department. Decor is nice, but sterile.

too much starch
"Meatloaf" sandwich was a bread ball - too much stuffing and bread was too thick. Potatoes as side dish is bad choice.

Not my gramma's BBQ!
All of what's great about BBQ taste & texture in food with a fork! DELICIOUS, creative, beautiful food & drinks!
Scotch eggs are AMAZING! How do they do that!?!
