Haggar, Martine & Ramsey are stars !!!
Foods good but service lacked. Had to waive waiter down for everything. Didn’t bring bread or water.
Lovely pre-theatre meal with friends. Great service, nice table
in the corner, no rush on a Sunday night.
Wait staff very knowledgeable and helpful with wines.
Food was wonderful....except for the fries--what happened there?
Not as crispy and yummy as I remembered.
While we have been here for dinner several times, this was our first brunch. The dungeness scramble was outstanding.
This is my favorite place for lunch before going to the ballet. The food is delicious. The service is great. We eat here every chance we get. Thank you!
We love Absinthe. The ricotta stuffed French toast & Dungeness crab scramble were delicious as always. Don’t miss the potatoes with onion jam!
The service is always attentive but not cloying. We love the ambience. Returning next week before the ballet!
We have been going to ABsinthe for years before the ballet. While the food is still excellent, we were so disappointed in the very dark lighting (like being in a cave) and the noise level. They no longer have white tablecloths and that has contributed to the noise level. I don’t know what happened to the lighting but it is now so dark that it is unpleasant. After being loyal patrons for years, we we will not go again. It was very hard to have a conversation and that defeats the purpose of dining out with friends. So disappointing and sad.
This was our first visit after more than 3 years in SF and we will definitely be back!
Amazing food and service
Try the octopus
As a solo diner it was very clear that I was being rushed to turn the table. My entree came out as I was 1/2 into my salad and they thought it was OK to just leave it on the table and suggest it came out faster then expected.
