Garibaldi's on Presidio
The food was amazing
Good restaurant. This last time they missed the beat.
Wow 😳 what a terrible service. We were here to celebrate that Biden has won, what a mistake for the Restaurant, do not waste your money in such a place, staff has such a bad attitude, even with this Covid-19 situation, what we thought will be a night of celebration turned out to be a very sad depressing night, we were early because Apple Maps said they are open at 4:30pm well they have three different schedules, one at Apple Maps, one at Yelp, and one at Open Table. We made a reservation at 5:00pm so we waited at outside at 52° so keep in mind is very cold outside anyway, we just wait, when we were inside at 5:00pm our server had a very dirty shirt to being with, we did not let that to bother us, food was excellent, soup, chicken Milanese, lamb tenderloins were amazing, we wait a whole hour to get our waiter back, and when she showed up she bring the check when we want to order dessert, she says that we have a two hour limit time for the table, we were like what???? How we did not know this? And how you had not shown up all this time? Is something missing here? We were waiting for a whole hour for our server and she did not show up the whole time, we were treated in such a bad attitude and disrespect, and STILL we pay all our bill with gratuity and everything, we just don’t get why all the drama and attitude.
Open for indoor dining, the ambience is not as warm, charming, and bustling as when they are operating full capacity but the food and service is just as good. Their Chicken Milanese is very flavorful. Service was great, very attentive and staff is doing a lot to make you feel safe. They took our temperatures and tables are far apart and completely wiped clean after guests leave. We will definitely come back for another date night!
Consistently the best food ever. Was so happy to be dining out again!
Welcoming service, terrific cocktails, and varied menu selection make this is a neighborhood favorite
Loved it! Such a great neighborhood restaurant, our waitress was awesome and the food was delicious. Hope to become regulars there!
Our server Liz was AMAZING! The food was also to die for...a truly wonderful experience even during these COVID times!
I was shocked that tables are close together and most all tables were occupied. Made dining there a bit uncomfortable! We asked the waitress why so little distancing, but she thought it was o.k.
I used to live in San Francisco and frequented Garibaldi’s frequently. Now 14 years later, I returned and was surprised at how outstanding it still is. Impeccable quality and consistency. Still one of the best neighborhood restaurants in the city.
So happy our favorite neighborhood restaurant is open! It felt safe and warm and quiet. Can't wait to go back.
First time back this week since the pandemic broke out. So nice to return to this neighborhood gem. Try Doug's meatloaf!
I dined here the first night after reopening for indoor seating and had a great meal and experience. Menu was somewhat limited but good, service was good and everything came out on time. No issues or rust experienced.
I love Garibaldi’s. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with great food and great service.
Always excellent neighborhood gem. Worth a trip across town for a meal.
Tasty! Haven’t been in a long time. Still excellent.
Wait person ‘hovered’ too much.
The food and service was outstanding. Excellent Mushroom Risotto and Chicken Milanese. Wonderful Next Door Sauv Blanc.
Garibaldi's is around the corner from work, great place to meet with friends for happy hour.
The milanese was wonderful, the brussels sprouts, and the Garibaldi salad are outstanding, cannot wait to go back, I am very glad that they are open for lunch!!!!
Great dinner like always. From the manhattans, Brussels, and chicken Milanese. Always my go to
What happened to the bread and olives that we’re always served before the entree. We have been going there for 10 years as neighborhood loyalists and we will continue but besides offering no bread, the portions of Milanese and arugula are much smaller. We want to support our local restaurants but we are disappointed in Girabaldis’s.
Nice spot for lunch or dinner. Good service; attentive & friendly staff.
Highly recommend. They stay current in a difficult Sf restaurant environment.
The filet mignon tartare and the cokctails were disappointing.
We got the tagliatelle and risotto for our mains and those were delicious.
excellent except for the noise---this might discourage me from returning
The server splashed soup onto my coat, quite a bit of soup in fact, as she flung our plates, diner style, onto our table. While cleaning my coat at the bar I was offered to speak with management.
Back at my table while speaking with management this server appeared between tables and began to argue with me: I shut her down.
Despite management's professed apologies, he and she made display of their fealty by joking and laughing as they passed our table in this near empty restaurant.
We later observed her setting places while holding forks by their tines and spoonsby their bowels. She was and is an ill mannered pig: I called her so.
A new manager with alcohol on her breath (in midday appeared). I spoke with her and left after she defended her employee'spublic health violation.
Oh, did I mention that a diminutive male server out of misplaced chivalry pushed his elbow into my chest. He was tiny, but challenging: "What are you going to do about it?" Well, he was tiny. I told him as he was guilty of battery, if anything I'd call the police.
Eat elsewhere. This place is where miscreants roam free and the management is sauced.
Management even defended her handling silverware by the tines and bowls (spoons). COVID and other nastiness anyone?
We love Garibaldis however the service was not great this past visit. Kinda bummed as that is typically not the case and had taken friends here for the first time. Was a bit embarrassed.
Decent but not great food. Caesar salad was very disappointing
Always a big fan, however, on this particular night, our server was less than charming. The food was, always, delicious.
Arrive around 6pm if you want to have a quiet conversation. Gets much more lively around 7pm, but great atmosphere at either time.
Really a neighborhood gem! The quality of the food is outstanding. Best Chicken Milanese.
Wonderful cocktails too with a fun vibe
I was a little disappointed with Garibaldi's this time. I have always loved the lamb tenderloin but this time it wasn't as delicious as I remember it being. Also the couscous that is served underneath the lamb was not as flavorful as it used to be. I was disappointed.
The majority of the dishes (six guests ordering) were bland or over salted.
Will not return as this is the third time we've tried Garibaldi's only to be disappointed.
Love this neighborhood spot! Extra bonus with the prix fix menu for SF Restaurant Week. Everything was delicious and our waiter was outstanding.
The service was good but the Host was both unfriendly and non-couteous. Bad way to welcome guests. We are long time customers
Wonderful staff, delicious food and great atmosphere. Fabulous neighborhood feeling with first class menu choices. Will definitely go back again soon!
We have been going to Garibaldi’s since 1992. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries and even gotten engaged there. But this evening’s experience there was epically bad. The noise level was off the charts, the food mediocre, and the service terrible. We made a notation in the remarks that we were celebrating a 60th birthday that evening and there was no acknowledgment whatsoever from the management or the staff. Having been such loyal customers, and with so many other options available to us, I’m sad to say that we will not be returning because they missed the mark so badly on so many levels.
Just what we were looking for. Birthday celebration with 6 adults. Food was good, drinks outstanding and service excellent.
Garibaldi's has an amazing menu--the food and cocktails are incredibly well crafted and served. The problem was with the ambiance and service. I think every seat was taken in the restaurant which speaks well for the aforementioned comments--the food was amazing! The challenge was that the tables were too close together--if you want an intimate conversation with someone special, it's not possible here. If you want to engage your neighbors in conversation, then this is the place to go.
I felt a bit sorry for our waitperson who seemed quite competent, however, she was also covering more tables than necessary so she forgot things like placing the order for our second cocktail and that we had asked for bread earlier on. Suggest more waitstaff to help with the obviously successful restaurant that Garibaldi's already is.
The food will definitely bring us back; we hope they work on the service levels and maybe remove a couple table to provide a bit more space between the tables. All in all, a good experience--could have been extraordinary though...
Food was delicious as always. Our waiter was lovely as very personable. The only issue was timing. I'm not sure what the delay was, but it was over 45 minutes between delivery of our appetizer and entrée. Our waiter was apologetic and topped off our wine glasses which was much appreciated. Luckily we had time to spare before our show at The Masonic.
