The Moss Room
Mother's Day Event was greatWe chose the Moss Room for a Mother's Day event and it was a perfect unique venue in GG park.
Highly recommend the menu, and amazing service. Thanks for a great day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat at the Moss Room everyWe eat at the Moss Room every time we go to the Academy. Love the setting, the food, the service, and the whole experience.
It is more exclusive than the cafeteria, so it is a quiet space in the excitement of the Academy.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous lunch- peaceful retreatWhat a wonderful break from the hectic energy of the Academy upstairs. We were a group of 3 Moms & 3 daughters. We had lunch together and enjoyed every moment. The service was awesome & very accommodating, the food was excellent & the ambiance so relaxing! I highly recommend this hidden gem.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMuseum diningGreat spot for adults to dine before, during, or after museum visits at Golden Gate Park. Quiet ambiance with full bar and pleasant music selections. We will definitely return!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good; however,The food was very good; however, I felt that the menu was limited.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLocation wins.It's got location. Inside the Academy of Sciences, it's convenience rates high. In general, it beats scouring the local neighborhood for lunch. Price is the downside. It barely squeaks by my bang over buck test. Lunch with wine and tip runs over $100 for two. Try it once anyway.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTrout with black-eyed peas AMAZING!had a fabulous lunch here! We have eaten here a few times before, but this was the BEST meal yet. Just wish it was downtown so I could eat here more often. We split the asparagus appetizer, then had the trout. The trout with blackeyed peas was amazing!
You CAN eat here even if you do not visit the science museum. We actually had been at the DeYoung, but went here just for lunch.
We had a reservation, but there were empty tables (it was a thursday).4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fine Dining ExperienceOnce again we were delighted with this hidden gem. Beneath the hustle and bustle of the Cal Academy of Science cafeteria-style restaurant lies an oasis featuring a beautiful living wall. You know you're in for a real treat the moment you step inside. There were four of us so we shared tastes of each dish. The oysters were amazing, enhanced by bites of sausage and a delicious broth sopped up with crusty bread. Two of us ordered Risotto, laden with chunks of asparagus and tomato--outstanding. One of us ordered the pork with grits-another excellent combination. Finally we shared one lovely slice of cheesecake for dessert. Perfect ending. Our friends will return next week with their guests & we'll be back next time we're in town.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were great. Had the pork shoulder, which was delicious!
Really liked the living wall of ferns and plants over the large aquarium full of several different kinds of good sized fish.
The Academy of Sciences was great too.
We'd suggest doing lunch first and then visiting the academy (in the mornings it is full of children, who leave in the early afternoon to return to school) when it's quieter and less crowded.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
