Garibaldi's on Presidio Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Brought a friend visiting from the UK. Like that it is in a neighborhood - and reflects far more of San Francisco than the craziness downtown etc. Perfect spot - for what we were looking for. Food very good - noise level just right for catching up with an old friend.
Service was extremely slow even though restaurant was not at capacity. Two people out of 4 got sick immediately after meal. Salmon was undercooked and lamb tenderloin was served cooked but not plated hot. Main courses came long after starters, that not only our waitstaff apologized but so did the manager. They comped a dessert but then didn’t take it off the bill. Chocolate Bodino came out as a soup.
Highly disappointing in so many ways.
Great neighborhood restaurant with a sophisticated but comfortable feel, friendly staff and great imaginative food. The lamb tenderloin was flavored and cut to have an upscale resemblance to merguez, which was both fun and really flavorful. The roasted root appetizer also had great flavors and a unique presentation. And the Perfect Perfect Manhattan was just that! Will return.
The restaurant was wonderful as always, but the service was delayed to our table because the service staff was not adequately informed who should serve us. After that, everything was handled well.
The food was good, but the mushroom soup was a little bland that night. Additionally the dessert was oddly plated in a glass (Spiced pumpkin cake, fruit and whipped cream cheese). It was not easy to eat.
However, the ambiance of this restaurant is always enjoyable. We will go back!
Welcome to what a friend calls a “Presidio Heights Private Club.” Very comfortable and cozy with white linen tablecloths.
We started with an excellent chicken liver pâté with toast points and cornichons, very smooth and silky. The bar did not have a glass of sauterne to accompany the pâté, which I thought odd.
An interesting green salad with apples, walnuts, and goat cheese which was severely underdressed, almost dry.
Main course, my wife picked the chicken Milanese, an inspired choice, which we split. More than ample portions, tasty!
We had a nice bottle of Poderi San Lazaro Pecorino from the Marche region of Italy, nice complement to the meal and affordable.
I always have a great experience at Garibaldi’s. I took my husband and a friend for a holiday lunch. I originally had a 1pm reservation, but they were able to seat us at noon, which I appreciated. The entire meal was delicious and each of us enjoyed our choices. The chicken liver pate was so good we got one to take home. The Meyer Lemon Panna Cotta was perfectly smooth and creamy. The service was superb with any requests quickly and graciously handled. We never felt rushed and we were able to visit and have a leisurely meal.
The night we went, it was extremely warm and stuffy in the restaurant. They did not have enough staff for the amount of people there so our service was terrible. The food might be good but we did not enjoy it enough to make up for these shortcomings. In fact, none of us can remember the food, just the noise, the poor service and the stuffiness.
Wonderful restaurant, amazing food. The brussell sprouts were to die for, blackened just right with a little balsamic. Salmon was one of the best I've ever had. Love that I could talk to my date without having to shout. Seriously, why do restaurants think we like it like a Metallica concert in their dining room?!
Exactly as hoped. I was looking for a quiet, neighborhood place to have a business dinner with a colleague in from out of the country. This was perfect: seated promptly, great service, exceptional food, superior wines by the glass. Noise level low enough to have a conversation but loud enough to not worry about overhearing the next table (and vice verse).
Garibaldi's is one of our favorite local restaurants. This night we introduced our friends to the restaurant and we know they will return again. We were very lucky to have Pilar serve us how is so attentive and knowledgeable about the food and beverages. Even though we have been to Garibaldi's a number of times we truly enjoy each experience and know that the food and service will be wonderful. Enjoy.
One of our favorite neighborhood dining establishments. The food is diverse and delicious with many options for V and GF. The service isoutstanding with friendly waiters that answer all your questions and arrive promptly with your order. My favorite is the lamb salad. I dream about this and getting obsessive cravings - it’s that good!
We were grabbing a bite before a book talk at JCCSF. The waiter got us in and out even though we were a bit late. I must say that the food was outstanding. One of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Bright interesting flavors, hearty but not heavy, very well executed. Will come again when I have more time.
I dine here on a very regular basis. Restaurant was empty when we arrived & were seated. The carpet had a odor & was very sticky ( chair literally stuck to the floor ) When I mentioned this to the wait staff they acted not interested in addressing this unsanitary situation. The service was extremely slow & disjointed. This restaurant filled up & there was not enough staff to address simple requests like water, salt & pepper,etc.
Thanksgiving 2017, made reservations 2 months in advance only to be given a table with a view of kitchen and adjacent to the waiter station. This was our first holiday after losing the family matriarch and first time to see our daughter in months. Very disappointed. Food was not bad, but nothing special either. Service was good but couldn’t make up for the 100 per person cost.
