As usual, the Bubble Lounge
As usual, the Bubble Lounge is classic New York. We took our (out of town) parents here for after dinner drinks and had a great time. The staff was attentive and polite, and since my mother-in-law loves champagne, she was in heaven.
The only bad part of the whole evening was another customer who was very rude, but the staff handled the situation very nicely.

When we were seated, the maitre'd
When we were seated, the maitre'd pointed out that it was happy hour and showed us that menu. The cocktails were half price.
We ordered some small plates and all of the food was delicious. The cheese menu was particulary good and presented nicely. We each had three drinks. When the check arrived, we noticed that our cocktails were not at the reduced rate. The waitress said, "Oh, that drink is not part of the happy hour menu." The drink was on the cocktail list. She might have pointed out any exclusions when we ordered. We did have a nice time and enjoyed the food.

Went for a girls night out and had a great time. Waitress was great, champagne and snacks were excellent. Would have loved to have done some dancing, but it was not the place. Still fun anyway. Would return!

Lovely service, special champagne cocktails and unusual martiis. Bit pricey but very nice for special moments.

Reserved for Birthday
The small plates were delicious and so were the drinks! They had live band that night [wednesday] Italian Surf Academy and they were pretty fantastic. A great Birthday indeed.

21st Birthday Party
Although The Bubble Lounge had given up our table because we were 20 minutes late (although I had confirmed the reservation and offered my credit card earlier in the day) we ended up sitting upstairs on couches and chairs. The service was friendly and the party platters were good. Everyone had a great time, the DJ was an extra bonus

Bubbles make everything better
Three long-time friends randomly selected this spot as our get-together location. After an evening of small plates and champagne-based cocktails it was determined to be one of the best nights we've had. Our server, Faustina, may have resembled Cruella DeVille but her demeanor was anything but. Her friendly attentiveness just added to the experience.

We had a very surprising time at the Bubble Lounge (NY, that is, since we also discovered they have two locations -- also in San Francisco). Service was relaxed and friendly, ambiance unpretentious and cool, prices very reasonable and food surprisingly good (yet it is certainly not a "restaurant"). We will be back; and often. What's more, parking is easy after 6 PM and public transportation couldn't be easier.
