A great surprise
The menu seems straightforward, but the execution is creative and delicious. We're eager to go back for dinner.

Service was a bit awkward
Service was a bit awkward (ordered soup and it came at the same time as my dinner). Menu is minimal, but everything was good. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I am glad it is in the neighborhood. Will try it again.

Excellent food choices. My fourth trip to Company and they always seem to have a changing menu with great choices. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced.. We were a party of six on this occasion and evryone thouroughly enjoyed the experience.

COMPANY STANDS OUT
SF has 3,500 restaurants, but very few make me want to return. Company does. One qualification about almost all 3,500: why do they think NOISE adds to the ambience!

It was our first time at Company,
It was our first time at Company, and the food was amazing. We were there at the early part of the evening, so almost had the place to ourselves for the first 1/2 hour, but it was full when we left. The server was very helpful, and described the house made pasta perfectly. OMG. Thought I had gone to heaven. We will be back!

You'll leave happy
Discovered this place walking home one day. Have been twice and all the food & wine were fantastic. Friendly service (although they're still getting their sea legs) and a cozy atmosphere. And the roast chicken: my God!

We headed over to Company on the recommendation of friends. We found a warm, welcoming atmosphere, wonderful service, fresh, flavorful and creative dishes. Very fresh and delicious offerings. We will go back to try the rest of the menu.

Unique twist on comfort food
Eclectic and unique offerings with influences from European, Asian, and California cuisine. Well prepared with interesting ingredients. Fresh. Great service with smart, fun waiter. Good drinks. Not overpriced. Good spot.

Randomly chose Company for a Tuesday night early dinner for the location - and so pleasantly surprised by the food and service - and the Tuesday night "2 for 20" deal: main course and choice of appetizer or dessert (one or the other) for $20. Even at regular price, my wild fresh salmon on brussels sprouts leaves and lentils was terrific. The chopped salad prior was fresh and crisp. The grilled calamari and organic roasted chicken was also amazing. Certainly worth a detour to eat at this small, friendly place.

Don't let the old decor interior fool you. The food is outstanding and the service is friendly, informative and attentive

Company is one of those restaurants that has yet to find it's personality. It's a mix of "quiet and cozy" and "lively foodie scene." Good for both small groups and couples.The menu was short but everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was down to earth and attentive. It's not really a destination place where you go for an experience but I'd return for some of their citrus wings and Parmesan frites.

a place to go back
In SF there are so many places to try you almost never need to go back to a restaurant. This is one of the few I would go back to. I had a black cod that was about 5x as delicious as any other fish I've had.

Great neighborhood find
Great food, service and setting. The food and drinks are all tasty. I highly recommend company. Fantastic small plate starters, amazing burger among other tasty entrees, including quite a few vegetarian options.

Tomatoes and ricotta were
Tomatoes and ricotta were amazing. The fries that came with the steak and frites were also amazing. Lighting was a little too bright. Service was fair. Drinks were really good. I'd go back.

Great Neighborhood Find
Menu was limited but it had great choices....kale chips rocked as did the heirloom tomato appetizer. Steak and fries were awesome and the risotto was out of this world. Desserts took a little long to come out, but were well worth the wait!

Such wonderful food!
Wow, Company is just outstanding. Best meal I've had in long time. They found the right balance for everything. It's stylish but comfortable, gourmet but not pretentious. And incredibly friendly staff. Everything exceeded expectations, from the salads and apps to the entrees to the desserts. We kept asking "where did you get this bread?" "Where do you get your ricotta?" The answer to everything was "we make it here." I mean. Just so delicious. Get there soon to have the heirloom tomato salad. (Hard to add to the pleasure of an heirloom tomato without ruining it, but of course they find a way here.) The subtle but wonderful sauce on the steak frittes should be bottled. The swordfish is just perfect. I can't think of a bad thing to say.

I live in the neighborhood and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed my dining experience. The food was great and I want to go back to try other items on the menu. The grilled squid, chicken and homemade pasta were wonderful. If I could have licked clean the bittersweet chocolate pot de creme I would have! Wonderful conclusion to a great meal.

Our party of 5 had a great time and felt well taken care of by the staff at Company. Seasonal menu items like the butternut squash soup and salad with figs were yummy. Main dishes of salmon, chicken and risotto were all excellent and the chocolate pot de creme and panna cotta desserts we chose ended the meal nicely. Even had a limoncello to top it off!
Felt right at home with the service, food and wine, and thought it a great value.

Love this Place
I've been going to Company since they opened in September 2012 and it's been great every time. What I especially love is that chef Jason Poindexter puts equal care into fine, well executed cuisine, and beautiful presentation. I think of Company as a neighborhood restaurant, which means it's comfortable, reliably tasty, and NOT an over-hyped mob-scene. But one down side that I experience in a typical neighborhood eatery is unremarkable presentation and nuance. Not so with Company. The food experience is like that of a hot-chef destination, but in a comfortable, relaxed, neighborhood setting.

Tao Noodle Cafe Reinvented
This place is under the same management as the previous Vietnamese restaurant that was at this space, Tao Noodle Cafe, but with a completely different menu, chefs, staff, and ambiance. And it is much improved! We live around the corner and as much as we wanted to support Tao Noodle Cafe, we just had better choices. Company, however, is a lot easier to support. The food is excellent and ambiance is much improved. The prices are a bit over-priced, but unfortunately that seems to par for the course in SF these days. The staff is friendly, but we've been here about 3-4 times and have consistently seen average or below average service; they just can't seem to keep up and we're always having to flag somebody for more water, drinks, etc.

Nice place with good choices with freash and organic ingredients.

slightly slower than ideal service
Came here for dinner on Saturday night. It was a good thing we had a reservation as the restaurant was very busy. We got a few appetizers- I'd recommend the warm olive plate. I had a salad for dinner that had quinoa, pomegranates, and grapes and I thought it was delicious. My companions had the burger and fries which they said was good- the fries were kind of spicy, actually. We also had the spiced almonds and the cheese platter which were fine but nothing to write home about. All in all, the quaint atmosphere was nice and the food was good, the service was a little slow. We had to ask for more water a few times, but other than that, I enjoyed the dinner here.

In the Company of good food
Good meal at a great value. I am a notoriously tough critic - even my restaurant friends agree. However, I found very little fault with this place. Tue/Wed they do a 2 for $20 deal. A great choice of entrees with a dessert or app. I was there on a Wed, so we did that. Chopped salad was solid -very fresh and tasty. I had the Steak Frites, my fiancee had the Chicken on Faro. Both very good - steak perfectly cooked with seasoned fries & sweett potatoes - very nice. We also ordered the Grilled Octopus and Romaine which rivaled my recent benchmark at Kokari. For dessert we had a Paplova - a fruit tart of sorts on a boat of meringue - again very solid. This is a great find and I urge all to at least check it out. We will certainly be back.

Local bistro/international flair
Friends from NYC asked us make a dinner reservation in the Mission/Valencia corridor. COMPANY was perfect -- a warm, neighborhood bistro with smart retro decor, an enticing seasonal menu, and expert servers. The grilled squid appetizer was amazing, ditto a fried baby artichoke starter, and my chopped salad could have been a meal in itself. The risotto was the best I've ever had, bright with heirloom tomatoes and fresh herbs. The hangar steak came with frites that we all fought over. The four of us shared 2 killer desserts -- a fresh peach cobbler with vanilla gelato, and chocolate-mint pot de creme. Good wine, good times. Enough said. NYC -- eat your heart out :-)

Special food in comfortable setting
Somehow this place walks a wonderful line between cozy neighborhood spot and special fancy place. You're at home no matter which you prefer, and the food fits the bill either way. Delicious apps, main courses, and deserts. All of it creative, tasty, and satisfying but not pretentious or too expensive. I really like this place. I want to try everything.
