Ran out of half the menu. Would recommend stocking more food. Busy outdoor area - also recommend more staff - takes forever to order & get food/drinks.

Not my favorite spot I’ll tell you this much. We were in town visiting and decided to try this restaurant. It took a while for someone to come to your table and take our order. The food was ok, but not my favorite at all. After we were done we ask for our check and our waitress to forever to bring it that we had ti has another gentleman to bring it for us. Well check. They collect our check and she brings it back to us ALREADY charge. She herself brings it back to us keep this in mind. I later then get a call from her asking if we paid for our food??! Can you believe that after she herself brings the check back to us already charged. Anyways let’s just say it was a bad experience overall and it’s my first time visiting San Francisco and first restaurant we try. So sad!

I made Our reservation specifically because of the outdoor dining and requested outdoor seating on the app. However when we arrived the host said our reservation was not for outdoors and that there were no tables outside for us. When we checked outside there were three empty tables but we could not have any of them. The manager blamed open table for the error And said their outside tables are booked two weeks in advance.

The food was a bit pricey for the quality of what we got (it was just okay) but the service was just terrible. I understand restaurants are still getting back into the swing of things given Covid but no one even came to ask us for our food for over 20 minutes after we were seated.

It's a great hidden gem in the city for sure! Took my wife to celebrate work anniversary and we had a great time for sure. Natalia, I believe, was our server. She was very attentive, pleasant and professional. Great cocktail list and selection of small plates, lovely setup and pleasant music. Not cheap but worth the money spent. Will come back to try their patio

Only 1 dish on the dinner menu could be prepared or was available Gluten Free. Food was over priced and under cooked. Wait service was lack luster. Completely different from previous experience 2 years ago.

Interesting and well-prepared food - venison yakatori, wow??!! Excellent wines to choose from. Overall, seems like someone has good ideas in the kitchen but the people who serve have no real sense of maintaining a vibe.

It was hella fun! Servers were great, drinks took a while to come out and that’s totally okidokey. We were told to keep it down which is not surprising as we have a loud person in the group that always gets complaints LOL their energy is just too OP! Thanks for such a great time 10/10 would come again.

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.
