OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)
3.0  Dined on January 6, 2018

We chose Enigma because of the weekend special of Prime Rib and Crab. Very good food, but we were the only ones in the restaurant and service was very slow. No ambiance on tables such as centerpieces, candles, etc. No plates for dinner rolls, we ate off our napkins. Room was freezing cold and they could not adjust the temperature. Drawn butter was not served over a candle as you would expect and it literally turned hard and unmelted before we finished our crab legs. Would recommend to others based on the taste of the food (which was amazing) but not sure I will return because of service and atmosphere. Expected it to be more elegant based on the location and reputation.

Great food but our food took almost an hour and half and the first 45 mins of that we didn’t even have water. The staff left much to be desired. Thank god the chef is the saving grace! I will probably go back because they were great about accommodating my gluten allergy but only if I have no plans other than dinner and I snack beforehand.

Love Enigma! Food was amazing. Made the reservation the same night for six which is usually hard to get. Staff was attentive , drinks were great and food was great! It was a win win in my book.

My friend and I had a reservation set for 7:30 P.M. on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived, the restaurant was empty, so the noise level was low, and the look and feel of the restaurant was very nice and welcoming. The appetizers were fantastic (I recommend the mushroom crostini), the bread was warm and the butter was delicious. I am also a vegetarian, so I ordered three sides, and it came plated like a full entree. The waitress was also very nice and accommodating, and even called when we left a pair of sunglasses. Thanks for the great dinner and experience!

No draft beer or liquor. The beer they brought out to me was room temperature. The ambiance was mediocre at best. It almost looked like they tried to make an old Pizza Hut look fancy. And the waiters dress and appearance was not professional at all for what the place is advertised to be. Also the menu was small and there was no drink list on the table, I had to ask for it. The food was decent but not worth the price at all. I will not eat here again. Take my advice and go to Dakotas or Delmonico instead.

The food was far to salty. There was trash on our table from a previous guest. The server never came by to see how things were.

Service was deplorable!!! Only one other couple in the entire restaurant @ 7:00 on a Saturday night. Ordered a glass of Chardonnay & husband Malbec. About 10 min later I got my wine, husband no. Could not find waiter. He delivered my salad with my wine glass very close to empty. Quickly disappeared without asking if we were ok. 45 min later food came & husband got his wine & so did I. Husbands chicken ok I could not eat my plank salmon. Oil on the plank/ salmon tasted rancid. No waiter to complain to. Bill was prompt. Waiter did not ask if we wanted anything else or how our food was. We had planned o order a bottle of wine BR lack of waiter caused a No Sale. I Would Not recommend this restaurant to anyone and definitely will not return. Husband left a detailed note on our bill and a tip to match service

Excellent restaurant with delicious food and great ambiance. We were on a group tour and had a free night for dinner. We chose your restaurant after checking out your website. Thank you for a lovely evening!

Our server was great. I requested a private business setting off to the side. We were in the middle of the room. The food was just ok.
