Overall good ambiance and great service but some of the dishes were too salty. Their pasta on their specials menu and the Brussels sprouts was extremely salty and we could not finish the meal. The beef brisket rotisserie was delicious but the bed of potatoes it was on was too strong in taste (either too much vinegar or mustard) so we left most of that behind. I really enjoyed the kale Caesar salad and wine selection.

The last time I had Hoffmann’s I thought the food was much better overall (loved their pork shoulder rotisserie) but not so much this time. I don’t think we will be back.

Second visit since moving from Glasgow, Scotland just over a year ago and enjoyed the food again. Whilst I've come to expect restaurant prices more expensive compared to the UK, Hoffmann's offer good value for money in comparison to many other restaurants we've tried since moving. However, like many other restaurants in San Francisco, the price of wine in Hoffmann's is outrageously priced.

Hoffman’s is a solid neighborhood spot. Food is always delicious, staff is friendly and attentive, and the ambience is mellow. Portions are on the larger side so very good value. I have been coming here for a couple years now and look forward to dining here again soon.

We are so lucky to have Hoffmann’s Grill as a neighborhood restaurant. The food is consistently delicious, and the menu changes seasonally, though certain favorites are always available. The chef makes what I’d call innovative comfort food. And the staff is warm and appropriately attentive. We love the place.

We had a great time dining at Hoffmans. The waiter service was great and we thank him for his generosity, humor and personable nature. Food was delicious and we think Hoffman serves some of the best fries we ever tasted! Thanks again for a great night,

This was our first time dining here. There were four of us and each of us ordered a different entree. We all enjoyed our entrees including the hamburger, pork, steak, clam chowder. It was quiet enough to talk with friends and a great find and close walk to the The Marsh Theatre on Valencia. We will definitely be back!

Waiter was terrible. Asked for bread and nothing for 20 minutes. He overheard us talking about the wait and said, “I was going to get you bread but decided to wait.” Um, what??? Yes, he literally said those exact words!

I love Hoffman's. The food is delicious and is presented perfectly, without any fussiness but elegantly and simply. I had been before- this was my second time- and I'll definitely go back after having chosen it as the place to celebrate my seventieth birthday with friends.

This place has potential..

The server was pretty oblivious in terms of the reaction of the food being "okay". Brussel sprouts were overcooked and mushy! We LOVE our veggies, but we couldn't even finish the rest of the bowl. I wish the server was attentive and considerate enough to have left this off our bill. Instead, he realized he missed it and charged us for this bland and unappetizing dish. My duck was great, the polenta was nicely done but the greens were SO bitter, I couldn't even finish it. I was HIGHLY disappointed paying what I paid for this sub-par meal.

Love this place in every way. The servers and chef/owner(s) convey the sense that we're esteemed guests in their home. The food is simply scrumptious (delicious as plated and also accommodating requested modifications), there's a terrific array of beverages (loved both the wine the server recommended and my son's "house-made" mango soda); the folks there tonight seemed truly enjoy kids (so refreshing, especially as our city is shifting demographically); and it's an incredibly relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. My new favorite joint.

We really liked everything about Hoffman's. Service was very nice and non-intrusive. I think our server was Chris. Very attentive and respectful. I like this type of food. Comforty, hearty, flavorful. Had the chicken, kale caesar, pork loin, squash blossoms, mussels, cheesecake and peach crumble. I loved my pork loin. Seasoned well, cooked perfectly. Came with red potatoes and haricoverts. Mixed with the rich sauce was very yum.

Great neighborhood spot with a friendly staff and good food at reasonable prices for SF.
