We were a group of 5 who made a reservation for a late dinner. Our meal was great comfort food and the service was impeccable. I will go back again next time I'm in SF.

Overall a great night. The service was great in the beginning, but as it got more crowded the service seemed to slow and the waitress came around less often.
First time at the restaurant AND will go back or recommend.

Great food in a classic SF location
We went here for my sons 18 birthday and had a great meal. He is a foodie and liked the interesting menu. We went early and it was quiet but filled up as the evening went on. The piano singer was a great surprise and it is right across from Washington park in North Beach so location is perfect for people watching and neighborhood feel. The food was outstanding. The owner chef knows hs stuff and my son's organic steak was the best he had ever had. I had an asparagus soup that was complex and yummy. Portions are generous and can be shared so we made the most out of tasting. We didnt try the wine list but the mint limeaid was fresh and perfect for an early meal We would return for sure!

A tad spendy but great all around.
We went in knowing what we were getting into, but $100+ for two people (3 courses each plus a cocktail, tax, and tip) means that although we loved the experience, it will have to be reserved for special occaisions. I found the Gems salad to be amazing, but the pork chop was much too salty for my taste (though other reviewers seem to like it). Service was top notch.

Service OK...Food made up for it
What I had
Fried Chicken Thighs w/dill yogurt sauce, celery
New York Steak- smoked pepper sauce, warm potato & green bean salad
Chocolate Cream Pie- banana coulis, toffee crunch (not as good as I had hoped)
Snob Alert - I did not like the fact that the waiter did not consistently refill my water even though he was not attending to anyone else (it was a Sunday Night). I was expecting a bit more service.
Aside from that, the food was great. I would never have tried dill yogurt sauce on chicken but it is my new appetizer favorite.
The steak portion was large and the potatoes were small...just how i like it.
I should have gone for the sorbet but I was in the mood for chocolate. Did not like it much.

Six meeting up in The City
Excellent food and service. The lamb loin was particularly outstanding. Good selection of beers (did not try the wine list). Will return for sure.

Great place to meet friends .
I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The bass was cooked perfect. Great cocktails too. Service was well-timed and friendly.

Very pleased with Bottle Cap
Most restaurants in North Beach are tacky tourist attractions, but not this one. Very good brunch menu with lots of different options to please anyone. Had the three egg omelette, which was delicious, plentiful and excellent value for money. Service was good, decor and ambiance wonderful and not too loud so you can actually have an enjoyable conversation with your fellow diners. Will be back for dinner.

Fun place, very good food
We went to this fun place, lively, pretty noisy place before going to Beach Blanket Babylon. it's really close and we had a terrific dinner. The host noticed my request for table placement on my Open Table Reservation and accommodated me. The staff was super friendly and the food was very good.

We flipped over Bottle Cap
We made a reservation at BC and were running late, so phoned to let them know and the host was super easy-going about it, telling us not to stress. Then, our friend from Switzerland ended up at the wrong restaurant so we had to wait another 15 mins for her to arrive, and they were patient about that as well. Our waitress and busboy were also super nice and accommodating.The goat cheese app and the crab were cakes tasty. My hubby had the chicken (!!) meatballs, and ate every bite and our friend had the soup and some sauteed vegies. Everyone was content. Drinks were good - a bit pricey, to me, but it is in North Beach - and the only food item that was lacking was the butterscotch dessert which wasn't very tasty.

I had never been here before but I needed a place that could serve a large group brunch. This place was very nice and delicious.

This review is for brunch
This review is for brunch only.... the food is OK. Typically, the food is THE MOST important thing to me, so because it kind of fell down on that end, I can't rave about it. The ambiance is very laid back, very cool, great service, but the food is just OK... for brunchers though, $3 mimosas! :)

Great for weekend brunch
I did make a reservation for brunch, but was surprised to see that was totally unnecessary. When we arrived at 11 a.m., we were immediately seated with no wait.
The place filled up a little more over lunch time.
The service was very friendly, albeit a bit slow (but I didn't mind that at all. If you go to brunch, you should have some time to spare to just sit and enjoy your company). Food was delicious and I loved that the menu items were somewhat unique and not the 08/15 menu that you find everywhere else.

We love the brunch! Overall, the place has a nice Berkeley-ish vibe, and the food is awesome.
