Beet salad was superb; salmon was good, though flavors were a little muddy, and didn't add much to the excellent piece of fish. Wine rec from the waitress was exactly on target. Cocktail at the beginning (a vodka based mule) was ho-hum.

We booked through OpenTable for Valentine’s Day for myself, my wife, and 9 year old son. When we sat down, we discovered that it was a special fixed menu deal for $75/person. We had no idea this was the case before booking. When we asked whether we could perhaps get some pasta with butter for our child, they guy was a bit of a jerk- completely oblivious to how it was unfair to blindside us with the fixed fee meal without prior notice. He essentially said, live with it. So we went through with the meal. The meal was fine. Worth $75 per person including for a 9 year old? Definitely not.

I do like going here overall but the quality of the food varies a great deal depending on what I order. This was not a great meal.
But often enough there is something really tasty (The killer Minestrone on a previous visit, the chicken Milanese on a previous visit). I love the lamb tenderloins at dinner (awesome) but the lunch version this day was disappointing (lettuce instead of couscous; doesn't hit the spot....and I miss the pistachios. If they don't feel like cooking the green beans at lunch then at least give us the couscous!!!!). I know there is some good cooking going on here in the kitchen....but I wish I could help design the menu once in a while!

I love Garibaldi's but noticed this time that it was very noisy...too noisy...I had liked being there before because it was not too noisy - but this time - Friday night? - it was deafening....we couldn't hear ourselves talk.

This was our 2nd time at Garibaldi's for dinner. My wife had a great meal, our waiter was very good; and we had a great conversation with the table next to us. I would recommend Garibaldi's to everyone.

Garibaldi’s is excellent. The menu is diverse enough to accommodate all eaters and special enough to please everyone. The services is always pleasant and the food is consistently delicious. This is one of my go-to places when catching up with friends over lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed.

Enjoyed our visit. As we arrived early had a drink at the bar before moving to our table by the front window. Wait service was good about checking in if we were ready to order and bringing my salad, but main meals seemed to take longer than others that were seated after us. Our meals were good though portion size maybe a bit smaller than some other slimiar establishments. Would return for happy hour and bar bites.

Innocent mistake - but the waiter spilled wine while pouring because he was distracted by something happening at the host desk. not a big deal but my clothes got stained.

Subpar overall. Food well prepared, service mixed. Wine menu had itself confused with a higher end restaurant. Ran out of Risotto before 7:30pm. One must 'request' bread, which was a bit odd, particularly as it was printed on the menu. We found we had to ask more than once to actually receive said bread. Considering the price, a rather middling dining experience. Too bad as the space was lovely.

It took fifteen minutes for a server to recognize me sitting at the table by myself!! The restaurant was not even busy!!
No one offered me any drinks to start.. not even the hostess, Cate (who I follow on Instagram).
I did get up to use the restroom and eventually flagged Cate to place an order for me.
I was disappointed with the experience and will be moving forward!

As always Garibaldi's was an elegant and comfortable venue with impeccable cuisine and service. My lamb salad was superb and your greens were, as always, perfect - fresh and tasty!

My friend, visiting from Seattle, arrived early and was concerned that the noise level was high. However, for our 2pm reservation that issue had disappeared and she was delighted with her chicken sandwich. She usually eats like a bird, but she could not leave even a crumb.

I find Garibaldi's to be my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Subtle elegance and a wonderful menu.

I live in the neighborhood and have been going to Garibaldi’s for years, but the food seems to have slipped a little. The lamb salad, which has always been a favorite, was not served in the usual bowl and just didn’t come up to the salad in the past. Also, the Budino, which is my favorite dessert, has lost the hazelnuts in place of large and very hard almonds. At the very least you should use toasted and sliced almonds - the dessert doesn’t need any more sugar in the sugar coated almonds. The last time I ate there I had the mussels and there were too few and they were to sandy, so I think I need to scout out another neighborhood spot. Disappointing.

Food was good but service was terrible. 9PM reservation so the pressure was off, but appetizers arrived 5 minutes before cocktails arrived. Don't order food until they show with you drinks.

I LOVE Garabaldi's....been going here for many years and always enjoy myself...just a couple of things I find annoying...it's SOOOO loud in there that I find myself hoarse from yelling afterwards and secondly, I think the prices aren't fair for what you get. On this visit I ordered the chopped salad (my favorite salad on the planet) and it seemed smaller and more expensive. Also, my dinner partner had the pasta and it barely covered the bottom of the pasta bowl...please don't misunderstand...I'm not a big eater and NEVER expect huge portions (nor want them), but their portions just don't seem to equate to the price.

Great food and service. Really impeccable service with attentive waiters. It reminds me of old school SF. Attracts an older, less diverse crowd that is characteristic of the neighborhood so you may feel out of place if younger than 50. It is loud and dark. Hard to hear companion.

We shared small plates. All great, especially the salmon tartare and carrots. Short ribs were very tender. Profiteroles look better than they tasted.

I'll be back.

Have always loved this neighborhood restaurant but felt like it needs some new ideas and innovation. The chicken Milanese was very good but the salad was limp and weighted down with too much dressing. You have to ask for bread now and we received 3 small pieces for 3 people.
