Diner Reviews
  • "We were a group of 5 early diners after the ballgame. The service was very good as was the food. We sat at the window and enjoyed the beer flight with an explanatory commentary from the brew master and thoroughly enjoyed the early evening."

  • "We met friends we hadn't seen in two years for dinner. I was so happy when they lead us away from the bar into the back area where we got tucked around the corner. The crowd at the bar was deafening. Our table was quieter, so we could carry on a conversation. There is a great selection of bears. I had a Panda Bear, which I enjoyed. I ordered the vegetarian paella, while the other three shared plate after plate of tapas. Their favorites were the flatbread with some kind of Italian ham and the French onion soup. My paella could have served two, was decent but kind of bland. It could have used more color and flavor. Our server was polite and mostly timely. But we picked the restaurant mostly because of its location near our hotel..."

  • "What a find! Very cool, but comfortable, with friendly service. It's an organic brewery, great selection of beers. They offer flights so you can taste 12 different if you want. I had a stout, a red ale, a pilsner. All the beers are named after bears, i.e. panda, polar, etc. Clever. The tapas were delicious, the poblano peppers stuffed with manchego cheese were our favorite and homemade pickles were yummy too. My son devoured the Thirsty Bear burger and he's usually hard to please so it must've been good...our waitress was so attentive and helpful with the beer selections. I loved the space, how the tables were set up and the floor plan. Oh and the prices were reasonable too. I would definitely return to this place and recommend it highly."

  • "I was in San Francisco for a conference and we ate at Thirsty Bear our first night. The beer flight was delicious and the food was AMAZING! Everything from the brussel sprouts to the piquillo peppers were fabulous. And who can forget the awesome sea salt and caramel gelato- to die for! I'm so happy we came here!"

  • "Small plate tapas, sangria, beer & sports games on tv is a great combination for hanging out with friends. The food was fun and service was good. It's casual but a good local spot."

  • "Met here with friends and really got into the tapas experience! Really easy to do as the menu has something for everyone...can you a 100% grass fed certified organic burger patty?! Next let's get to the beer, nothing short of amazing. I went straight to their seasonal, 'Wild Stave' and their newest 'Oro en Paz'...both sorus and both wonderfully crafted. The IPA is great too, and I don't even like IPA's. The off beer is definitely the 'Panda' with it's notes of chocolate, good none the less. The host was really smiley, actually, all the staff were smiling and our server Tori was amazing as well. It's a brewery. Who goes to a brewery and has a bad time? I suppose people who don't know how to have a good time in the first place."

  • "Definitely a great find. I was looking for Paella and this was well worth it. Plus the beer is great. I'll be heading back when they let their sour age a year because I'm sure it'll be great."

  • "Hostess was a complete pill - remembered this spot as being really fun and great for a group - we were all sadly disapointed - won't return again. Very bad experience!"
