Diner Reviews
  • "Definitely a favorite brunch spot. If you have a sweet tooth for brunch then have the Bourbon french toast. Cocktails are tasty too. Nice atmosphere."

  • "I have eaten at here a number of times for Saturday brunch, however, I had never dined in the evening. I had a friend visiting from out of country and wanted to take her to a fine, local restaurant. Slow Club was attractive because of its menu and the fact it draws neighborhood folks. My friend was very impressed. The minute we walked in the door she loved the ambiance. The food was delicious and the portions were large - actually too large. We could not eat the entire meal and hated the fact we had to waste it. I would prefer smaller dishes. The noise level was loud. We shouted for much of the dinner. I suppose it's due to its layout - low ceilings, small space. Lastly, the service was slow and it was hard to get our server's attention."

  • "Cool atmosphere, great service, and our dishes were excellent--roast vegetable plate, flatbread with garlic and cheese. We enjoyed a starter of warm olives and bread. Our server was great--perfect balance of attentive and unintrusive. Dessert (chocolate pot de creme) was the only disappointment--a bit ordinary. FYI, Slow Club is only two blocks from Z Company, where Joe Goode dance and Word for Word theater company are housed. Also highly recommended!"

  • "I appreciated the seasonal menu and fab service. Too bad the turkey hash was a poor choice for me since it was a bit greasy. High chair for my baby was great but restroom needs a changing table."

  • "We have wanted to check out the slow club for some time. Having out of town visitors served as our opportunity to do so. Both the quality and preparation of the food and the service exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back!"

  • "I have been there twice now. Both times someone has ordered a fantastic dish and others have been disappointed. Still reccomend it. Fun environment."

  • "We had tickets for a Theatre of Yugen show, and this is the closest restaurant to the Project Artaud complex. Was a bit concerned about finishing dinner in time to get to the show, but we were seated right away, service was prompt, and the food came out without delay. Great burger & fries for a great price, and the cocktails were good, too, although the Magnolia kolsch seemed a bit flat (tasted fine, though). I've eaten at Slow Club before when I had more time, and the food has always been top notch. My only complaint with Slow Club: it's TOO LOUD in there. Thank you to Slow Club for their generous donation of food to the Theater of Yugen "This Lingering Life" opening night - all loved the tasty and colorful crostini/bruschetta."

  • "My husband and I went for dine about town. the carrot Ginger soup, pork loin and pot de creme were all fantastic. The service was good and the prices, even without DAT are reasonable for what you get. I found the portion sizes to be on the large side. "

  • "My husband and I come to Slow Club about twice a month for brunch and the service is always unbeatable and the food is always delicious. And I love that we can make a reservation and never have to wait. Thanks Slow Club!"

  • "We went for brunch, I had the frittata which was delicious. The only lowlight was the service from the bartender. He was so busy socializing with friends he forgot he was working! I've never been in a restaurant where drinks arrive AFTER the entree. I blame my server as well since she should have been paying attention to the service."

  • "On a previous visit to the Slow Club, my wife and I had found the food to be tasty, the portions ample, and the service attentive. Unfortunately, on a recent visit for dinner, the opposite was true. It took us 90 minutes to get a couple of drinks, two salads, a bowl of soup, and a roasted butternut squash. And the squash was a colossal rip-off. It was only half a small squash stuffed with some spinach and quinoa and finished with what tasted like Soy-Vay. At $18 a plate, never again. The salads were disappointing, as well. The Caesar was soaked and bland. Our Arugula salad was missing the roasted pecans that were supposed to come with it. When we flagged that for the server, they showed up with a thunk as we were close to finishing."

  • "Waited 20 min. after ordering cocktails and a 1 hour and 15 minute wait for our meal. That is totally unacceptable in SF. All 4 of us ordered burgers. Yes burgers! "

  • "Great food, great service, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to have a conversation. Go to this restaurant if you have nothing to say to your companion!"

  • "I love this restaurant! I have been here several times with family and friends and it never disappoints. Great, unique cocktails, a fine wine list and the food is excellent. Even options for vegetarians. It is fairly small, but very energetic with a great wait staff. I wouldn't come here if you want a quiet romantic dinner. But if you want great food and an energetic neighborhood vibe, this is the place to go."

  • "We made reservations via Open Table for a party of 6 and although we were late we were seated with ease. The food was very good, however the service was a bit questionable. The server was extremely friendly, very positive however there were so many strange errors it puzzled us. Drinks were incorrect. questions were answered and then serviced incorrectly (do you want dessert? YES! then the bill was handed to us.) I think it was crowded and super noisy, and the wait staff was overwhelmed. We love the venue, but definitely wondered about the service and mistakes made throughout our meal."

  • "Great food, fun casual atmosphere within low key and comfortable neighborhood. Its worth noting that next door is Alite, an awesome outdoors shop, that provides 20% off of their products if you bring your bill from Slow Club."

  • "Slow Club is a gem, in more ways than one. Not only did they accommodate a large party of nearly 20 during the height of the dinner hour, but the service was timely and the food was perfection. Courses were moved without interrupting guests and our server never let a wine or water glass run dry. Good cocktail list, great wine selection, and an eclectic but superb menu - everyone loved their experience."

  • "Took a friend here as a thank you dinner. First time for her. We both enjoyed the food. Glad we went early as it got to loud as it filled up. The place needs to add some acoustical treatment to reduce the bomb noise level. "

  • "The Slow Club was perfect for a first date - The food is always delicious & their fancy but not too fancy drink menu hit the spot. They even gave me the out of the way table in the corner I requested when I made the reservation. (for a little bit of first date get-to-know-you privacy) They were so sweet. Thanks Slow Club!"

  • "Really enjoyed dinner, one of the best bugers ... Great service and atmosphere, truly is a hidden hideway.. Jealous wish i lived in the neighborhood to go more often..."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "It's in a spot most peopel wouldn't think of , but it is worth a visit to Mariposa Street! It's always fresh, as the produce truck delvering the the goods as we went in for dinner confirmed. It's all good, but the bourbon pecan pie made my day!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Very good. We have been going to the Slow Club for years and it is consistently great. Great cocktails!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Slow club is a great restaurant, always a favorite of mine. Especially love their burgers, and great fries too. Service is always prompt and friendly, a great neighborhood restaurant."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We got this recommendation from a local. It took a bit to find the place, and once we did, it was easy to park, and we sat right down. The service was great and the food was amazing. The food was prepared beautifully, very fresh, and so tasty. Definitely a go to and try."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Having endured loooooong waits for both drinks no entrees, I now understand the meaning of the name....food just ok, certainly not worth the wait, and the ambiance is cold, noisy and uncomfortable, a bit like dining in a garage."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food, the drinks, and the staff - all top notch. Good job, Slow Club!"

  • "very creative menu items, always fun for a special occasion or brunch the turkey sandwich is consistently good and the cocktails are interesting for dessert their ice cream and cake are delicious would recommend for any occasion to surprise the palette"

  • "The Chef (my husband and dining partner) had only good things to say about our dinner. Looking forward to bringing his boss in for dinner. I hate it when we loose great restaurants like Slowclub, in the field of newbies that we feel we have to try."

  • "A good brunch spot with unpretentious food & service. I would definitely come back."

  • "I had the spinach salad with Yellowtail - but 3 hours later I was starving. I guess some bread would have helped (or a bigger piece of yellowtail)."

  • "We were there for a late dinner at 9:00. My wife oprdered halibut and I ordered linguini to follow a salad. We found the food well seasoned and cooked perfectly. They do know their food. This is imprtant after my failed attempts to get a properly cooked and seasoned linguini at famous restaurants in the Bay Area in last two months."

  • "This is a great stop and enjoy your life spot . Easy to park easy to walk in and feel welcome. Good mixologist with good drinks at a small cozy bar . The menu is small but straight forward and delicious. I am a fan of A martini or Margaritias ; the Cesar salad ; the burger and fries. Desserts are tempting !"

  • "Dined here for the second time last week, had another great experience. We we're seating at the two person table near the window in the back, which is a great spot. Our server was great and I highly recommend the Prather Ranch burger!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Its out of the world ! The menu is short but ever dish is a punch (Disclaimer : i have tried only two yet - the frittata and flat bread and found both of them amazing, though the frittata was something)."

  • "Friend and I ..Thursday night. We both had the clam fettuccine and a very nice Oregon Pinot Gris. Exactly what we wanted. We were sat immediately and 2 mins later our waiter was with us. Very tasty. Very happy. Thank you Slow Club!!"

  • "I took my wife and my 9 month baby for Valentine's Day lunch. The staff very was courteous, and accommodating. The food was excellent. There is lots of options to eat. The dessert and wine menu are to die for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food and service were good, but the low ceiling and noise level made me hurry to say 'Check Please' and get out of there. I was facing a wall with dark drapes hung across it, and it was just very claustrophobic, combined with the low ceilings. I couldn't read the menu with the teensy votive candle on the table, and could barely hear my dining companion sitting across from me. Won't go back."

  • "I went to Slow Club after searching pre-fixe menus for Dine About Town that offered a vegetarian entree. Sadly, the entree on the menu had been removed, but the menu wasn't updated online. After I told our server that was the reason we came to Slow Club, she said they could still make it for me, which was very nice. However, when my date went to the bathroom he said he heard the chef bemoaning the fact that I'd requested the substitution. My salad, fettuccine and dessert were all delicious. My date said his pork was tasty, but cold. Our server didn't check back until we were nearly finished so I didn't have a chance to send it back. It was packed, so this was understandable. Overall, it was still the decadent date night I'd hoped for."

  • "I've been hitting the Slow CLub since the mid-90's and it's always fun and trendy (to those in the know). The food has remained consistently good, the bar is a great place to meet after work, and the service has always been predictably good. What else can you say about an icon?"
    Dined on 2/7/2013
  • "The food was fantastic---three of us had the pork loin & it was perfect with all the trimmings & veggies that it came with. We tried different entrees (& we shared a lil' of everything)--my wife had the delicious mahi mahi that was soo fresh she only shared a bite coz she wanted it all for herself. One my daughters had the range chicken & my other daughter had the NY steak strips. Overall, everybody enjoyed their selection (we were a party of six--with my 2 daughters & their boyfriends). We're definitely going back to this very cute & romantic place."
