Diner Reviews
  • "Luv Triptych, great gluten free food. I totally missed egg benedict."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I took my food loving daughter here after a Saturday matinee for an early dinner. We devoured the crab cake bites, The ahi tuna was just right for me, while my daughter was craving a burger so we were both happy. My daughter is a flan connoisseur and gave theirs a thumbs up, and an empty plate while I indulged in the beignets with salted caramel ice cream...delicious! The service was very friendly and accommodating. I also enjoyed the small but well chosen wine list. Very glad I chose this place and we will be back."

  • "We had one of the most delightful brunch experiences of our lives at Triptych. Two friends and I get together regularly and brunch at various restaurants - this time Triptych (and probably quite a few more times now). The lunch was exquisite - I had the best omelette that I've ever had in my life; my one friend had an excellent salad that she loved; and my other friend had an excellent burger that he thought was tops! The service was excellent. The host and staff were welcoming, very gracious, and very personable. I think this may be our favorite from now on!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "My favorite restaurant in San Francisco. I have to eat here at least once every trip! I usually end up bringing friends or clients with me to dinner and they're ALWAYS impressed with the food and the friendly service. WALU BUTTERFISH!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The specials for brunch were fun and varied, and made me wish I could order more than 1! Go for for strawberry-bacon beignets to start, with any cocktail! Custom art on the wall gives this place an artsy feel. Great spot for anyone wanting to try somewhere new."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Nolan , our server was fantastic. The food and wine were great. Definitely a repeat adventure."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Great spot!! Love the service - and outdoor seating was so nice!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Triptych seems confused about what kind of restaurant it is/wants to be. The dining room is one part restaurant, one part art gallery. Maybe this is why we were one of only 2 parties in the restaurant at 7:30 on a Saturday night. Pro: The food was really pretty darn good. And there is a GREAT backyard/patio area that would be perfect for brunch on a sunny day. Con: The pseudo-gallery vibe isn't adding to the experience."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My favorite thing about Triptych is their brunch menu, which they offer throughout the week. The menu and the quality of the food at brunch is a level above the dinner experience. But dinner is fine too. Triptych is unpretentious with solid to excellent food. Bloody Mary's, beignets and carmel-coffee cake are stellar."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Went for brunch early on a Saturday. The staff was attentive, the food was good, and I like the quirky atmosphere and decorations (be sure to check out the '70s bathroom!)"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Waited over an hour to even order drinks. There's too many options in SF to deal with being blatantly ignored."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "One of my faves south of Market and consistently good service and tasty cuisine. Not too noisy; easy to have a conversation. Great ambiance with local artists showcasing their works on the walls. Attentive staff; not pushy about "Do you want an appetizer, too?" Unhurried and pleasant experience."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "A notable beer list including some outstanding German, Belgium beers"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "The food was super good and you definitely get your moneys worth with the bottomless mimosas. However, the service was very slow and mediocre. The waitress was kind of rude half of the time and we had to wait 30 minutes before anyone came to take our food orders. We were there an hour before we got anything to eat and then the owner had the nerve to try and rush us out the door! It was quite unfortunate considering I loved the ambience of the place and, like I said, the food was quite yummy."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We stopped in later on a Sunday afternoon simply to check out a restaurant we hadn't yet visited. Man are we glad we did. I was with two of my pals who both know food and wine up the wazoo, so impressing them isn't easy. Instead of just brushing us off as one of the last Sunday brunch tables, Nolan greeted us at the door and proceeded to take care of us as if we were the King (and Queens ;-) of Spain. We weren't rushed, we were seated graciously outside, then offered beer and wine tastings and got plenty of attention even as the remainder or the restaurant was emptying out and readying itself for the dinner crowd coming in a few hours later. The food wowed us from the bacon beignets to the chicken apple sausage omelette. Great place!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Everything was great for brunch yummy food, fun staff, easy parking. NOW dinner WOW amazing food. the only reason for 4 not 5 stars is because we hit a night that like a 1/3 of the menu was either not available or was changed for something else. Which worked out fine and we still had one of the best meal of this years so far. great hidden spot to find."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I've been in a hotel for about a month, I think about gong to other Resturants but I always come here. Most of the menu can be gluten free and I have a different meal everyday. The waiters are fantastic. My favorite is the Pork Osso Bucco and Paella. I love the the creamy polenta, ummmmm!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Food was mediocre but the server was very nice. Unfortunately I got an email the next day from OpenTable: "We missed you at Triptych." Hmmm."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I took my wife here on Valentines night and it was evident from the moment we arrived that the service was overwhelmed. The table beside us had their entrees served before their starter and several other tables had obvious order mixups. You could tell by the disappointed look on customers faces. Our food arrived fairly rapidly and was excellent. After finishing our entree however, we waited over 20 minutes, unable to get anyone's attention to order dessert or coffee. There were 3 couples standing at the door waiting to be seated. I eventually went to the bar and stood for 5 minutes waiting for a staff member to acknowledge me so I could get the bill. The food was good, service completely messed up."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I been so pleased with the food that Triptych offers, I've been in a hotel for a month due to water damage. I have a gluten intolerance, I eat here almost daily and each meal different and tasty. Thanks Dave."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I used to go to Triptych for brunch all the time when a friend lived over there (always amazing, I never managed to leave hungry or sober), so recently when I needed to find somewhere in the neighborhood for a friends birthday dinner I thought I'd give it a go. It was the best decision I could have made. Not only did they treat us all like royalty, but they welcomed all of our special requests. There were 8 of us and we were not an easy table but they handled it with enthusiasm and personality. Plus the food was amazing. It was a complete success and my friend's could not have been happier. Thanks Triptych for doing all the work an making me look like so good! I will definitely continue to go back to Triptych for both brunch and dinner!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "we had a really friendly waiter who offered us some wine tastings before the meal. the food was great for the price, the mashed potatoes were heavenly and the bok choy was done really well. the atmosphere is great for groups - they're not too busy on weekend nights for some reason, so you can hear each other and stuff. oh and if you check in on yelp, you get a free glass of bubbly! I also love all the art on the walls."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Walked by this spot many times, and finally had lunch there last week. The food was excellent, service was good, but a little slow. I will definitely return again."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "I've been wanting to go to Triptych for a while and was excited about the menu. The staff was very attentive, patient with our questions and indecisiveness and I couldn't wait to get our food. It wasn't bad, but very underwhelming and frankly bland. My pork was advertised with an apricot/jalepeno sauce which I couldn't taste at all, the texture of the polenta was fantastic, but lacking flavor and the squash didn't seem to be seasoned at all. I'd probably give it another try, but would go for more of a sure thing like a burger."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "The food was good, although they were out of many things on their menu. I recommend the bottomless mimosas; they also have many mimosa flavors other than orange juice. Mango & grapefruit are two examples."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "My husband and I were in town for one night to celebrate new year's eve in San Francisco. We had such a great experience at Triptych! Our waiter was great, very helpful and so damn funny. And the food was — oh man! — so delicious! We had a orange mimosa and beet mimosa — I highly recommend the later. And for main, I had the quinoa and tofu; I cannot even begin to describe how good this meal was! My husband had the omelet with chicken-apple sauces, and still raves about it."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "I went to dinner here on NYE and the food was absolutely delicious, but the wait for my food was way too incredibly long. My meal took well over 35 minutes to be delivered to the table after we ordered. Neither of us had anything that would take that long to prepare. Once the food did arrive though, it was absolutely delicious."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Great service, great food, and great value. A must go and just a few blocks from the Orpheum theater. Treat yourself to a great evening."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "It's great to find a restaurant in the neighborhood that focuses on good food with no GMO, Organic, Free range, Grass Feed, & has Great Gluten Free Options"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "The people seem nice and the food is good enough. We planned our meal around dessert and then found that our two items of choice on the online menu (sticky toffee pudding and chocolate lava cake) were not being served that night. This is in a very urban setting, not sure that it is unsafe but it sure looks unsafe. Good enough to try but not sure if I'll go back."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "We went here because it was close to the Orpheum theatre and it was the only place I could get a last minute reservation at 6:30 on a Wed. The ravioli starter was nothing special--well the fried artichoke heart was delicious, but only 1 tiny bite. The sweet potato fries were sadly soggy. Veggie burger was good, ask for the HotLime sauce along with your ketchup. Would have gotten dessert, but the service was quite slow even though the restaurant was only half full. I asked for the check because it was already getting late and was glad I did because it took them about 15 minutes to get it back to me. Overall: OK, ambiance was nice, food was ok, pricey for how unexceptional it was, good location. Would try somewhere else next time."

  • "Loved the outdoor brunch, LOVED our waiter (Nolan?) who was super friendly and made us feel so comfortable, could do without the hostess making us feel guilty and awkward."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "If you're driving in to see a play at Orpheum theatre a great place tucked away on Folsom right off the freeway. Nice atmosphere, with outdoor patio in back when weather is nice. Interesting variety of food choices. Reasonably priced. Decent portions (no 3 oz. of fish on entree here)."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "We were a party of 5 people , and we ordered 4 entrees , 2 appetizers and 2 desserts , it came to averge 25 dollars per person, the portion sizes we a bit small for the exotic ravioli , but the taste was excellent.. we also had the butternut squash ravioli and that was great too. The only dish that I thought was average was the Tangine. As vegetarians we thought that the place may not have enough choice, but there was enough to choose from. And was great tasting. If there are vegetarians who do not eat mushroom then there is very little choice. The dessert (pudding ) and molten chocolate cake were excellent. Best dessert ever. Totally loved it. Overall it was very good. Shalini."

  • "Outstanding brunch on Sunday. We went before the 49ers game and it was delicious! Would definitely go back again. Would like a little better service, but I can deal with substandard service for great food!"

  • "Loved the Gluten Free Beignets to start with their delicious spicy Bloody Mary. Entree was Spinach, Mushroom, & Bacon Eggs Benedict with Tater Tops! YUM! Everything tastes so fresh and the variety of mimosas are nice too! Recommend reservations its always busy for brunch on Sunday."

  • "Had brunch here for a birthday, and everything was great. The restaurant called in advance to confirm the number of people we had. We were seated early since it wasn't too busy. Staff was attentive and didn't rush our group out the door once we were all done. Food was great. Thanks guys!"
