    My friend and I liked the food but the service sucks! They made us feel like they're rushing us to leave by asking if we're done every 10 minutes. We think it's rude and when they that our plates were still full every time they come back to ask. I don't think I would recommend this place to other friends.

    surprising for it's location in a cheesy hotel, this restaurant is actually quite good. The bar had great drinks, the wine list had plenty of affordable options, the food was good, the service was good. I will return sometime.

    Sunday at noon. Food was surprisingly dull. Caeser salad was barley dressed. Service was very slow, but we will return for another shot at the bar and appetizers.

    Cool little place across from the Marriott in downtown SF. French 75 cocktail was a nice treat and the Caeser salad and Skirt Steak with Frittes were both very well prepared. I would definitely go back.

    This was my 2nd time at Annabelle's and I am so impressed with the staff and the prep of the food presentation and wonderful flavors and wide variety of menu selections. I have told several people about this restaurant and I certainly will go back many times. The location is perfect if you're out shopping and it's a great place for a romantic dinner as well as groups.

    there were five of us in our party and I was surprised to see the waiter had added 18% service fee on the tab. I eat out all the time and usually the automatic add on of tip is for six and more.

    GracieVIP
    Dined on 3/30/2008
    My suggestion to the restaurant is to better describe their meals on their menu. My dish was much spicier than I like but nothing in it's description indicated that it would be spicy. My husbands' salad had large pieces of red onion throughout it which he dislikes very much.

    Our server Claudia was great including the hostess. Great specials, awesome cocktails and desserts were phenomenal. This is perfect place to have a nice dinner then head to the the movies (Metreon or SF Centre @ Westfield) across the street. Will definitely be back, and very soon!

    We had an enjoyable dining experience. The service was efficient and discrete. Food portions were of a good size and fairly priced(for San Francisco). I would recommend to friends.

    Nice atmosphere and very good service and drinks. Food choices were limited and mediocre, but it could have just been what I ordered. Bread was very good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIP
    Dined on 3/14/2008
    I always enjoy dining at Annabelle's; I try to get in at least once a month whether it is for a sit-down dinner or just drinks. It is a great space and very interesting group of people. My only complaint is that they removed one of my faves from the dinner menu (the pesto pasta dish..it was delish!). But really, everyone there is always pleasant from the hostess to the server to the waitstaff. Keep up the good work. I am glad that I finally decided to stop in instead of walking by after many years. Cheers,

    This was a chance choice that tuened out very well. Our party of 4 enjoyed all the meals served. They were attentive and were able to get us out in time for our theatre show. i would recomend this place to any one who wants a casual atmosphere and a good meal. Not pricy either.
