Our restaurant is uniquely designed to create an inviting, contemporary and relaxed atmosphere, where you can enjoy dinner and drinks overlooking Polk Street. We are located on the 2nd floor at 1160 Polk St. at the corner of Polk and Sutter Streets, one of the busiest corners in the neighborhood.

UpCider reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Didn't Card for It

    Service was so slow. Ended up only trying one cider and an appetizer. Didn't care much for either so left to have our main course elsewhere. Way to noisy, couldn't hear each other speak.

    I had a reservation and It was a busy night when i was there. The service wasn't great (we were overlooked for quite some time before anyone even asked if we wanted drinks) but i'm chalking it up to the fact that it was a bit chaotic and my date was there a bit before me (i'm sure they checked in with her initially and she said she was waiting for someone so that took our table off the radar.) Once our ciders and food arrived it was great!

    With so many ciders to choose from, it was difficult to pick just one. We're definitely coming back on a weeknight for a tasting flight. The intensely flavorful food paired well with the fruity bubbliness of the cider. There is also bar seating that wraps around along giant windows, so you can watch the antics of Polk St.

  • A great cider-based gastropub
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/7/2013
    I came here primarily for the cider list, and was not disappointed - it ran to 3 pages, maybe 60 or so ciders, about equally split between domestics and foreign. The latter included ciders from the UK, France, and Spain (Basque), which I expected, but also some from unexpected places like Germany and New Zealand. They also had a decent craft beer menu. The food was quite tasty, mostly small plates. We had the spinach and gruyere flatbread, salmon sliders, calamari with preserved lemons, and zucchini cakes, as well as a cherry tomato gaspacho that was a special that day. And, best of all, it's kind of an undiscovered gem - we got there at 7 on Sunday night and it was almost empty; we stayed until around 10 and it never got crowded or noisy.

  • good food, disconnected service

    Enjoyed the food, nice change of pace for the area. Service was a little disconnected from us. It's okay to check up on us, offer us refills on our empty glasses, etc. I'll check it out again as we liked it overall.

    True to its name, Upcider features a long list of ciders. We tried one if the JK Scrumpys and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also tried (and enjoyed) two of the flatbreads.

    Too much empty space, too many beer / cider / ale selections and too dark of an ambience. It reminded me of being stuck in a downtrodden cabin. The only upside of my drinking experience here, is this is where I met my boyfriend. We both agreed not to go again.

    The food here is amazing. All of the sliders we tried were great. I'd probably skip the shrimp and buffalo fries appetizers in favor of something different next time. The cider selection was pretty good, but 90% could be found at a good liquor store - I was hoping for more options on draught. Be sure to request a table if you are coming with a group. I had a reservation for 4 and they sat us at the bar tables along the edge of the restaurant making conversation and food-sharing very difficult.
