Very attentive and friendly service and good food and adequate dance floor!
Fantastic Valentines Day dinner and drinks with my sweetheart.
The food was great but the service was very slow, especially with kids!
This restaurant did not take the reservation seriously. We showed up on time to be told they had just had a lot of walk ins and they could not accommodate us for 20-30 minutes. The Maitre D seemed to have no concept of what a reservation meant to us as diners who had made a special journey to this restaurant and arrived on time. He told us that Friday and Saturdays were busy and this meant the night we were there (Saturday) was a bad night to make a reservation??? We waited about 45 minutes at the bar and after checking in with him a few times it was clear he really could not reliably tell us when we could eat as it kept being "about 20 minutes". So we left to find another restaurant. We were disappointed as we had specially bought an out of town visitor to try it. The food etc may be good (we'll never know) but I recommend you definitely do not bother with an Opentable reservation as it means nothing at this place.
Don't bother on Flamenco night.
I made a reservation for 7:15. Flamenco performance starts at 7:30. I received a confirmation phone call, day of.
Arrived at 7:15 and the host apologized and said it was at 45 minute wait, standing only, and they'd put us in the far back separate room from the dancing. He pointed at another group he said also made also 7:15 reservation and there were no tables for them either. They were dressed up very fancy, must have been a special night for them.
We left. While we were sitting down at another restaurant, we saw the other group walk by. Guess they never got a table either.
Food, atmosphere, service were top notch. Great location😁, near bart. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.
I love Bissap Baobab...one of my favorites in SF. I have been coming here for almost 25 years, from one location to the next, and the food just keeps getting better. It is my favorite restaurant to take out of town guests for something a bit different; they have all loved it. I have been to Senegal...and when I am at Bissap, I almost feel like I am in Senegal again. I like the atmosphere, the music, the service, the food, and especially the unusual and delicious cocktails. My favorite food items are the red curry shrimp appetizer, yassa or dibi fish and coconut curry with shrimp. My favorite cocktails are Sedem, Manifique, and Tooni (ginger margarita). The happy hour special menu is a great deal: cocktail, appetizer and entree for $20. The SF place turns into a dance club at 10 on Wed, Fri and Sat nights.
The food was wonderful and interesting, the ambiance is great... It is convivial. Pretty much everything you want for casual dinner.
Special thanks to the manager and staff there, who were extremely helpful/accommodating when i left my bag there.... Honest and friendly.
Always an excellent time! Went for a birthday celebration!
Very friendly, African Music...a great place to go dancing!
I wouldn't know how the restaurant is. It was closed when we got there at the appointed time of our OpenTable reservation. The lights were off, doors locked, chairs on the tables, and a motorcycle parked inside.
Well we made a reservation for the 26th and then showed up...and the restaurant was closed. So, yes, we were just a bit unimpressed. Nothing either online or through their phone (and definitely not through Open Table) indicated they would be closed.
Came with my fiancé for a weeknight dinner. We each got the happy hour dinner special: $20 for 1 house cocktail, appetizer, and entree. Our food was delicious, perfect proportions, and good service. Most of the building is a bar/ dance floor. There is a sit down area with tables and great ambiance.
First time trying black eyed pea cakes- and I’m hooked. Looking forward to my next meal here.
Would be a great place for a work happy hour.
Brilliant and authentic food and drinks. Servers were polite, helpful and adaptable to our seating arrangements. Hope to stay for the night events/ nightlife next time
We had to wait for our table more than 15 min and then we were not able to order our food because the kitchen closed.
But thanks to the food runner we have some thing to eat. Not excatly what we ordered but still delicious.
