Unicorns may have been sacrificed to make tonight’s butternut squash ravioli.

Beautifully prepared whole chicken, but I think the brisket may have stolen the show. And the pate... YUM!

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.

We had the beef brisket and the pasta special. I loved the warm potato salad and broccolini served with the beef, and the beef was very tasty but also very fatty for my taste. I will probably order a different entree next time. Our server was very helpful with the beer list and with our menu questions. We loved the service and will definitely return.

I exposed my friends to another great restaurant with good food, good service & good wine. We had the romaine salad, steak & rotisserie chicken with a side of the roasted cauliflower. Dessert was a peach crumble with ice cream on top. All were DELICIOUS!! Our server was very pleasant and patient with us since 3/4 were newbies! And you can't beat the nice welcome when greeted by the owner at the door! Thanks, Chef!! I plan to expose more friends to this quaint size spot in the Mission!

The food was very good. Like far too many restaurants today, the server lacked manners and any understanding of how to serve graciously. Before some of our group of four finished eating the server started cleaning plates and disrupted the mood of a pleasant meal. This continued with the waiter interrupting our meal by removing plates as they became empty until I finally told him to stop. There is no excuse for this lack of manners.

Offering just what it says, Hoffmann's menu offers grilled and rotisserie meats. But they also bring out good side orders and specials. The 1/2 chicken was succulent, a little salty, and accompanied with tasty small cooked onions and potatoes. Decent wine and beer list. I'll go back, but with so many restaurants in the neighborhood, it may be a while.

Reliably thoughtful and friendly service. Menu choices contains both regularly available great dishes (like the grilled romaine salad, or the brisket), and rotating specials that are often tempting. The payed attention to acoustics, so the place can be pretty full of people and you can still hear your companion talk.

A superb meal. Hoffman's my new fave, hands down.

Sure, the ambience is neighborhood diner, not fancy. But that's okay. Bummer there's no full bar, but wine list good.

It's the food, the stunningly-flavored food.

Such talent.

Only thing that was good was the rotisserie chicken. The brisket was way too salty and dry. The first bite was good and then it was very disappointing. The cauliflower and sprouts were too greasy and heavy.

Hoffman's is a great neighborhood restaurant in a neighborhood that's gotten quite competitive. Their rotisserie chicken and specials (lamb, pork, duck etc...) are consistently excellent and their burger with the pretzel bun and aged cheddar is the best I've had in San Francisco. They've got excellent wines at decent prices and service is always fast and friendly. You'll leave here with a happy mouth and a full belly :)

Hoffman's never disappoints. We ordered the grilled caesar salad and we loved it. Then we got the roasted cauliflower, brussell sprouts with blue cheese, the spaetzel as sides, and the whole roasted chicken and a duck entree to share between 4 of us...way too much food. It was a feast with tons of leftovers.

Hoffman's in three words: Delicious. Un-fussy. Satisfying.

We started with the grilled romaine salad, which was smoky and crunchy and interesting. Next came pan-fried panisse (think batons of polenta, with a slightly crispy exterior) with a flavorful Romesco sauce.

It was a cool night, and we were hungry, so we ordered the whole rotisserie chicken to share. It was ENORMOUS, and came with potatoes & tiny white onions in a silky, chicken-y pan sauce. We took half of it home with us.

In a city filled with amazing food options, it can be hard to find a restaurant that does comfort food so well - no twists, no gimmicks. Just high-quality basics done right. Fantastic.

Best, most tasty, restaurant I've eaten at in some time. All 3 of us at the table were raving about the food as we ate it. Top drawer. Since we picked it because we could get a last minute reservation (and the vegetable appetizers looked good) we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food turned out to be.
