Delicious food from appetizers
Delicious food from appetizers to salads to entrees! Prompt & courteous service. Although I wish that the kitchen or server had paced our dinner a little better. We were still eating the appetizer when the main course came to the table.

Lunch counter haute cuisine
Grub offers high caliber cuisine in a modest cafe atmosphere. Think upscale diner with new American cuisine. The food is very good, reasonably priced, and the service is adequate. Especially novel is the Mac & Cheese bar, where you can concoct your own gourmet Mac & Cheese selection (think, lobster & truffle oil). Spiced popcorn instead of a brad basket offers an interesting touch.

Sunday Brunch. Had an excellent time. Service was awesome and friendly - not intrusive. Would go again.

Bottomless Mimosa Face
Oh, my, lord. I definitely have found my new favorite Bottomless Mimosa spot!! You guys were truly amazing! I had a 1pm reservation that you accommodated at 1230. The food was SPECTACULAR! I had the Chilaquiles and it was freaking amazing. What really made this place awesome was your staff. I cannot for the like of me remember the gals face but she distinctively recognized my "more mimosa please!" face. Awesome place you got here, keep at it!

GRUB is bomb.
The wait staff at Grub was amazing, my friends and I went for brunch and wanted to sit outside but quickly realized it was too hot so they moved us inside without any hesitation. The food was amazing I had the frittata and bottomless mimosas. Everyone who worked there was incredibly nice and helpful and they even gave us refills on mimosas even after we paid our check. Awesome place for brunch, and it wasn't too crowded. We will definitely be back!!

A Must Visit
Perfect for a large family or friend gathering, but an intimate and unique setting. Solid service and friendly management. Sweet potato fries a must; make your own Mac & Cheese as well as burgers fun and tasty for all. Great value for price!

Yum! Everything we had was
Yum! Everything we had was deeelish. The eggs benedict was super good. The salad that comes with it needed a little more sprucing up. The dressing was barely there and kinda ho-hum, but the egg dishes were solid!

Middle Eastern taste hiding at Grub
Nice burger and fresh bun. My bacon as not as crisp as I had requested. Too much pasta in the mac and cheese, i.e., wasn't cheesy but pasta-y. The shrimp garbanzo salad had overcooked (rubbery) shrimp but the garbanzo beans were really flavorful. The beet salad was nice and fresh. We had a nice Dry Creek Vineyards Zin for half-price! Great deal. The server was very attentive.
I think Grub needs to work on its identity some more and focus on what it does best. There is a diner-style place with a middle eastern flare buried in there if the garbanzo beans in the shrimp salad was any indication. I'll bet his falafel would be great!

Some items (sweet potato fries, salads) were delicious. Others, like the gnocchi with pea/almond pesto, were surprisingly bland. Great service, though. I would go back.

Amazing Comfort Food!!
This place has some of the best mac and cheese you will ever eat. And you get to decide what goes in! My personal favorite additions are lobster, truffle oil and english peas.
Plus the burgers are wonderful as well.

Steamed mussels a 10!!
Steamed mussels were the best I've ever had. Service was very good...they even remembered my special request made when I booked the reservation!!

dinner at grub
My wife and I were in SF recently, and ate dinner at Grub, a really nice find.. We ordered a caesar salad, bacon and chedder hamburger, and mac n cheese with Lobster. All were done very well. The hamburger was not over cooked, and the mac n cheese was great. It wasn't some ham fisted effort with too much cheese, etc. We would definitely recommend

Evening @ Grub
It was a intimate place with good energy and food.
Will definitely return.

We love the burgers at Grub. Being Gluten free always is a concern but not at Grub. Our Server was very very good and offered suggestions to entrees without Gluten. The Heirloom tomato salad was incredible!

Awesome Birthday Brunch!
I love this place. I've come here about 4 times now and this time was my birthday. Food is always perfect and the staff was great. I work at a hotel downtown and ALWAYS recommend this place to my guests as a great spot to eat. Thanks for everything!

Nice casual dining option
We were looking for a restaurant with a lighter menu that wasn't heavy on the pocketbook, and Grub filled the bill. Very good salads, burgers, risotto, soups, and an extensive Mac-and-cheese menu. Good service and very reasonable for the quality.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Brunch Spot
They have flavorful entrees and the mimosas were delicious! I highly recommend this place if you are in the area!

Was my first dining experience
Was my first dining experience there and love the fun atmosphere but was disappointed that our waitress was not upbeat and friendly. It was apparent she did not want to be at her job that evening! I will come back and hope we do not get the same waitress again.

The food was very good, to
The food was very good, to be more specific we met our adult children there for breakfast. We found a nice selection for people with differing breakfast likes and dislikes. The atmosphere was comfortable for breakfast/brunch; a warm neighborly feel to the seating and staff. It's a nice meeting spot in the Mission.

Grub serves a great brunch! We ate the Peanut Butter French Toast with fried chicken breast and the Breakfast Burger. Both were outstanding! Our server was very personable and attentive by keeping our water glasses full and checking in at the right moments. Check out the local art that is also displayed on the walls.

Came for mac and cheese
Despite mixed reviews for the mac and cheese bar, we gave it a try and were not disappointed. There are a wide range of add-ons that would suit every taste. Service was excellant, space not too noisy and, best of all, we could get a last minute reservation. My partner had the grilled shrimp starter which was very tasty and filling. Would definintely give it another go.

Awesome brunch spot
I was here Agee months ago on opening weekend and then a few times since. The service here is always spot on - a true effort by the wait staff, busboys, and even the owner. The bottomless mimosas are continuously refilled without any delay as well. The food selections are varied and all delicious offering something for everyone. Plus, they seem to have no issue customizing orders to your liking. One of my favorite things about Grub? They allow you to order a single pancake as a side dish. AWESOME!! From the frittata to the Benedicts and the burger, everything I've tried has been flavorful and well portioned. Their salad selections are quite nice as well.

Good food at a Good Price
Good comfort food - all fresh and seasonal. Pricing is good and portions are good too.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose this restaurant because I wanted Italian and my boyfriend wanted a burger. His burger was GREAT! It was actually cooked medium, as most restaurants overcook. I ended up having the special, which was shrimp in a creamy pesto over linguine. It was just OK. It lacked some seasoning. I should have gone with the Mac & Cheese Bar.
But the truffle fries were delicious!!

A place to be a regular
Grub's staff, the food and ambience all make it one of the places I go back to again and again. Reasonable prices, a decent menu selection, with some really amazingly good things. Desserts are often spectacular. Overall, just a really good place in my neighborhood, which happens to be the trendy Valencia corridor.

Overall a great experience...the waitress was very good - and the food great. And its a great neighborhood. I even parked 1/2 block away.

Cozy and delicious
I visited GRUB with my boyfriend and my cousin and his partner who were visiting from Ohio. I have Celiac disease, so when choosing a dining establishment, it is essential for me that it has gluten-free options. I was so happy with our dinner at GRUB. First, instead of bringing bread to the table to start, they serve popcorn (my favorite snack). Our server was phenomenal-very attentive, knowledgeable, and she catered to our specific tastes, requests, and questions. The spare rib "small plate" was delicious (and not at all small). I was super-excited about a gluten-free mac-and-cheese bar, and it was tasty, but I wasn't blown away by the cheese sauce. The truffle pommes frites, on the other hand, are addictive! I would definitely recommend.

Brunch at Grub
Order the hash made with short ribs; you won't regret it. The breakfast sandwich is also very good, as is the bottomless coffee. Go for the food; ignore the crowds. We were lucky enough to get the window seat and enjoyed the endless parade of hipsters. Some people don't bother with reservations and wait for hours for a table.

Grub, the perfect name!
We met friends there and had one teenager and one 92 year old and fortunately it pleased everyone! The kale chips are awesome along with the complimentary popcorn and the fries are a must have. Mac & chesse is over the top and the burgers were juicy and filling. The bread pudding was awesome! Great place for people of all ages and the wait staff was so nice. We were actually able to carry on a conversation without screaming and all in all it was a great night out!

Great brunch choice!
Our brunch at grub on Saturday was wonderful! We got there at 10:30 and were surprised to see the restaurant was not busy yet. The music was loud when we entered but by the time we ate we no longer noticed it abd did not have a hard time conversing. tWe had a truly delicious meal, with our group sampling many items on the menu. I had the Maple French Toast with Carmelized Bananas, which was perfect - a decadent brunch treat but not so over the top so as to make you feel badly afterwards! We did find the potatoes that were served on the side were a little too spicy for some of us but great for others - one diner still added Chalupa Sauce to them. Our server was equal to the food - friendly, helpful, and handled our many requesrs well.
