High quality @ reasonable prices
Had to go to business in this part of town and went to the Slow Club based on the reviews on Yelp. The non-descript facade gives way to a cute little space, well laid out and with a varied and affordable menu. The food is of excellent quality.
My guest and I had the pizzetta/panini (I forget the exact name in the menu), the burger, and the butterscotch pecan pie with an espresso finale. Everything was delicious and served by a friendly and efficient staff without being obstrusive during my business lunch. Loved it!

Mission/potrero's underrated gem
The place is super cute, pretty romantic, very cosy: the perfect restaurant for a nice but not over-the-top weekend dinner. I had the cod when I went for the first time, and it was one of the best fish dishes I've had in the city. I cooked a salad for months based on a salad I had that night. Over a year later, I remember every course and the wine that I had... it was a super solid, fun meal.

Hidden gem in Mission/Potrero
Ever changing menu, great cocktails and great food. This was a huge find in walking distance from my place. Awesome place and will be back for brunch next time :)

An off-the-beaten path brunch
An off-the-beaten path brunch pick that is surprisingly busy on the weekends, yet not as insane as most of what is on valencia. Quick service, the menu has just the right amount of old favorites with a modern twist.
I love coming here and will continue to patronize Slow Club and its sister restaurant Serpentine

Initial service a bit off
Initial service a bit off and had to wait and eventually ask for second drink watching it sit on bar for 5 minutes. But food awesome and second server fantastic. A consistent fave on our list.

The food was outstanding.
The food was outstanding. We especially enjoyed the pork loin with farro and roasted strawberries--absolutely delicious. Prices are very reasonable for a city restaurant. Would go back in a hearbeat! Also, Slow Food is near Z Space theater where we went after dinner.

I have been going to the Slow Club on and off for at least 8 years and the food is truly delicious and reliable. Their bar serves
quality drinks and their staff is always pleasant and accommodating. If i lived near it I would be there even more.

Great spot for food and cocktails.
Perfect for a Saturday night...casual and trendy but not too crowded. The cocktails were well-made and the food was good. We did not like the carrot soup and when we told the waitress she offered to replace with another appetizer which was delicious. Cute and quaint place....check out their sister spot Serpentine, even yummier.

Good, creative food
Flatbread pizza was bland and too dry.
The roast chicken had a fab flavor, sauce, and skin. It was a little too dry.
The steak had a really good sauce but it was a bit chewy even though we ordered and had medium rare.
I think if they worked on the cooking times of their food, it would take this restaurant to a whole nother level.

Great for Groups
We were a big group, about 12. A few people showed up late, and we had multiple bills. Our server was patient, knew when to ask us what we needed, and, he separated out all the checks for us. He was amazing!

Focus on food, not conversation
Always great food, well prepared, tasty, but the noise levels seen to keep getting worse. Not the place I'd recommend for a business discussion. Better to just eat and drink!
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have never tried their menu
I have never tried their menu and lunch, but their brunch is to die for. Food is truly delicious and made with fresh ingredients (if I am not mistaken their produce is local and organic as much as possible). The drinks are also great! They tend to be pretty meaty with their meals, but for the most part they are happy to make slight modifications for those who don't eat meat. I always have a great time there, and friends always love it.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed my dinner last night and everything they ha to offer on the food side.
The bar menu was ambitious but in a unnessasary direction.

Lovely dinner yet casual atmosphere
Food that could lead to some pretensions yet service while excellent was casual and conversational. Good for a date, dinner with friends or any occasion.

Loud But Delicious
The restaurant was loud it was almost difficult to hold conversation, the service was good but a tad slow, and the food was fantastic. I had a sirloin steak with carrot puree, could not help raving about it for the rest of the night.

Good food, although the grilled tuna was a little dry. The flavor was still great. Service got a slow start but was adequate.

Slow + Great
Slow Club was excellent. Scrumptious food with interesting combinations and potent and eloquent cocktails. Fantastic service and wonderful personality, made it the perfect spot for a pre-art opening dinner.

Notable for the ambience and hip scene. Nice simple menu with great salads. Fun for a date or brunch.

Loud, but Fabulous breakfast
The food makes this place worth the trip. We were there for brunch, and every choice made at our table was awesome. A bit loud for a Sunday morning, but relaxed and great eats!

We recently visited San Francisco for a wedding and had gotten a recommendation for the Slow Club from a chef friend in Buffalo. It's not much to look at from the outside and off the beaten track for tourists. But, it was totally worth the cab ride. The drinks were great, very Mad Men and the food was terrific. Coho salmon, fetticini, steak, wonderful appetizers, delicious desserts. We had it all. We look forward to a return trip.

It does get relatively dark and loud inside. Reservations recommended for brunch.

Out of Towners
We selected Slow Club on the recommendation of a friend. What impressed me, from the onset, was the friendly and very efficient service. The food was very good and we had an overall very good experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
cool little spot
Finally went here after wanting to for ages... great little cocktail bar with well made drinks, compact but wide ranging menu. We had the charcuterie (could be meatier but excellent quality) my companion had the salmon (perfectly cooked and delicious) and I had the chicken (juicy with fantastic crispy skin). Service was friendly, snappy and the ambience fun. We will go again and can throughly recommend.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I return here year after year for the excellent food and reliable standards they maintain.

as well as all the above notes, this place is just plain fun...
was concerned my dining partner who is vegetarian would be out of luck..but there were several tasty items, including a veggie homemade pizza..as well as several options for us to share as appetizers..

Food, atmosphere and energy were great. Reviews had said that the noise level could be difficult for conversation and it was indeed the case. We really liked the experience however, and would definitely come back - for a fun night out with friends, not for an intimate evening where conversation and catching up were the reason.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nothing slow about the Slow Club!
Not much to say other than we loved the place. Great drinks and wine list. Blessedly short but very complete menu. Everything done to perfection. Our first time but not the last!

My dinner guest was very late.
My dinner guest was very late.
I called the restaurant and they could not have been nicer about seating us 20 minutes after our reservation.

Great food but too loud
Food was delicious, service high quality. Recommended wine pairings were spot-on.
The noise was a problem, however. Cement walls refect sound and some effort should be made to dampen it with foam on the ceilings and walls. It was very difficult to have a conversation due to the noise.

Pleasant Mission Neighborhood Spot
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Slow Club. We had been there before, but thought the quality had stepped up a notch since a year ago. We liked that the food was sophisticated but not ultra fussy and complicated. An example was the peach upside down cake--freshly baked, straightforward and delicious. We'll go back!

Really great, quality ingredients
Really great, quality ingredients that are well prepared. The space is modern and cool looking, albeit a touch noisy due to all of the concrete. We got the basic breakfast and the frittata. Everything was delicious. The potatoes were actually impressive.
I enjoyed the basic, but would recommend going with something else. I'll admit I had a little food envy when looking around. Maybe go with the basic and get a nice side dish to compliment it or something. Why am I still writing? I'm sure you'll figure it out.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, but not as good as I expected
The service was really good, the drinks were yummy, the food was good but not great. My pork loin was on the tough side and not very flavorful, although I liked that it came with grains, nectarines and greens on the side. My husband's burger was good but he is a burger fanatic and said he wouldn't rush back to have it again. It was a sweet date place, just wish the food had lived up to the hype a little more.

A Brunch Destination
Slow Club was a great place for brunch. Had been to Serpentine before but for dinner and loved it. Slow Club didn't disappoint either. Will repeat.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
One person in our party was detained by work and was 20 mins late to brunch. They happily seated us without her and didn't rush us to order. Our server was very sweet and helped us pick out the perfect cocktail. Overall, it was a relaxing brunch!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dining and Service
This was our first time dining there. The service was great and the food was delicious!! Definitely going back to try other items on the menu.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great experience
Found Slow Club last minute and thoroughly enjoyed everything! My frittata was the best I ever had. And my friend loved her spinach salad; "many surprise goodies in it," she said. Will be back soon!

Slow club brunch
We had the turkey sausage hash and eggs. Delish and the eggs were perfect. Eggs ranchera were also wonderful with perfect eggs. Portions were not overwhelming. Service good except they seated one of us and told the second one we weren't there yet. Really noisy but fun. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
lunch is a fun place
during the work week a great catch in the neighborgood
the turkey sanwhich and salad is the best I have had in a long time
fun for a quick and quality place with a new and modern atmosphere

Good Eats - a bit loud
Superb food and drinks - nicely melded, fresh flavors and food was cooked to perfection.
Staff was welcoming, friendly and very competent from beginning to end.
Aside from the noise (conversations grew louder as restaurant filled), the environment was pleasant and comfortable. I enjoy watching the activity in the open kitchen.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
one of the best places in the city for brunch
creative and new plates, always appealing
had 4 entrees, all incredible with fresh ingredients and creative new twists
would do special occasions and birthdays at slow club
have had out of towners rave of the best food ever, fun and friendly staff
hands up a true san francisco best

Fun fare at the Mission/SOMA border
I took out-of-town guests (first time in SF) to Slow Club for a Saturday night dinner, afrer a walk through the Mission. We had a great time. The food was quite good, with the exception of my grilled ahi, which was rare (OK) and too tough in the middle to cut (not). One of my companions had the same dish with no problems. I commented on this to the waitress, and she graciously removed it from the check. Service was good, and the ambiance was right for us -- small place, noise level just tolerable, easy parking. I would go back.

One of My Favorite SF Locations!
I love the Slow Club. I always have a great experence.

Been here before but never
Been here before but never for dinner. It seems hyped on Yelp as a brunch place, but dinner was GREAT. Almost my entire party of 8 ordered the steak and everyone loved it. They were all cooked perfectly. Apps, drinks and desserts were all also amazing. Great job!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood restaurant
We almost always have a great meal here, and our most recent trip was no exception.
