seating was in a lounge area. service was intermittent at best. it took a long time to order and receive drinks and then we had to flag someone down in order to get food doing. 2 orders of oysters, very explicitly articulated became 1 order. then the appetizer and entree came at the same time. naturally, the remaining orders arrived after dinner was basically done. that being said, the ribeye was well-seasoned and perfectly medium rare. the cauliflower was tasty and interesting. the oysters may have been a little overdressed with the green onions and ponzu - the briny oyster goodness was overpowered. drinks were well balanced though i could hardly tell that the rattlesnake had any absinthe in it (where was the licorice bite?). probably not somewhere i’d go out of my way to visit again, especially considering the lack of parking and the really crappy service.

We came here to start a celebratory weekend for my daughter’s college graduation. We arrived about 5min late for our reservation (I tried to call and let them know but was unable to reach the host, and we did notify them when they texted that we were on our way - I also have never seen a restaurant that doesn’t allow a 10-15min grave period). Upon being escorted to our table, we were told that we were late and they would need the table by 8:30pm (we arrived at 7:20 for a 7:15 res). This did not start us off feeling very welcome.

We then proceeded to sit for about 15min before anyone came to get our drink order. Once she took that order we decided to place our food order at the same time. Within about 15-20min the food began to arrive - and we had not even received our drinks yet! The food is tapas-like so we ordered multiple plates. They kept arriving one on top of the other so we had no time to savor anything and the hot foods were getting cold. Zero pacing of the plates. In addition, the server only came around once or twice to ask if we needed anything - no time to order more drinks, though we finally got some wine before we had dessert.

While the food was tasty (particularly the mussels and venison - my daughter loved the short rib) and flavors were interesting, it could have been better for the prices, and the cocktails were very weak pours - could barely taste the gin or vodka in any of them. Not certain if my take on the food is also impacted by the poor service and lack of a good welcome by the hostess. The ambiance was nice as well, but for San Francisco cold, not nearly enough heaters on the patio.

Overall, would not say this was worth being called one of the top 10 romantic patio dining spots in SF. Even though we weren’t there for a romantic date, I would have been even more disappointed had we been there for that.

The ambiance at this place is perfect for date night especially if you go in the evening and sit outside. The service wasn’t the best although the Manager tried really hard to be super helpful. We sat there for over 20 minutes before anyone asked us for our order and that was only because we asked for help. The menu is tapas style and although the food was good, when we tried re-ordering some of the dishes, they didn’t have them anymore. They also ran out of liquor - Makers Mark and the first round of drinks we ordered it was incorrect.

It was amazing, the service, ambiance and venue were perfect. It was rooftop dining. But no wind because of the walls plus there were heaters, so it was very comfortable. It was a perfect place for a send off party, everyone was happy. I will definitely return to Dirty Habbits.

Food was delicious once it came. However we had our first course before we ever got our drinks or wine. And it took forever between courses. I took 2 1/2 hours to eat for courses. Food was tasty and delicious but I would be hesitant about going again because the service was extremely slow staff was nice and pleasant and accommodating but organization was lacking

Excellent drinks, good, but not amazing food, which is to be expected with predominantly a bar first. Chairs slightly awkward/uncomfortable for eating (they are more like reclined rocking chairs). Good service.

Cozy little rooftop in the heart of downtown. The indoor bar is super swanky. Food was amazing. We ordered the salted egg chips - super crispy with a distinctive flavor, venison yakitori - super flavorful and tender, chicken wings - super crispy and meaty. Cocktails were also on point.

Disappointed with beef tartare portion. It’s basically 4 teaspoons of beef tartare and marrow served on a bone for $19 and not even memorable. Outdoor patio is cool tho. Maybe skip the bites period

I made a reservation weeks in advance and when we arrived for our Valentines celebration dinner date the first thing the host says even before hello welcome is "we have another reservation at your table in 1 hour and 15 minutes, so you will need to be done by then" - What I am sorry I reserved this table and we are planing to have cocktails, starters, Entree and something after??? the table next to us was told the same thing - I can totally understand this statement if you arrive at a restaurant without a reservation but not when you have one. The Service was horrible - they brought everything out of order - entrees before the starters? had to fly the server down for drinks more than once - not a great experience.

Staff was very nice and food was excellent. Had the cauliflower, ribeye and burger and they were excellent. Tasty, but not overwhelming flavor. Portions are perfect. Burger is more of a petite portion, but comes with fries and with appetizers it’s perfect.

Viber and ambiance was wonderful. Caught happy hour where the drinks and food were a value and very yummy. Host and events manager were rude to me and guest on another party who kept leaving doors open that let out jarring lights upon my eyes consistently when we mentioned it. Could use some better customer service training. But our waitress was very nice.

Great ambiance, good food, bad service. We were there as a 5-top. We did not see our server for the first 40 minutes. I ordered hot tea and he forgot it and it ended up taking almost 20 minutes to receive. Automatic 20% grat was added to 5-tops or bigger so I’m assuming his poor work ethic and apathy was due to his guaranteed good tip.
