Excellent service & meal. Met the owner who is passionate about the place. She is a shining example of wonderful customer service
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.
Reliably very good.
Very good. She makes everything including her delicious bread.
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,
Always solid and consistent home cooked deliciousness. It's like eating a wonderful home cooked meal with great service and amazing value. Love this place!
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!
We brought friends for dinner. All of us enjoyed our delicious dinners. Less noisy than other places and very warm and welcoming.
Just an exceedingly talented chef.
Very nice neighborhood restaurant. Salads are wonderful, but too salty. We especially like the hamburgers and the sodas they make. The staff has always been warm and friendly.
We had a great time. Calem is a PROFESSIONAL.
Our second time coming here in a week. A quiet time of the year, but this place is a gem. Food is excellent and the ambiance is friendly and low-key. Cudos to chef Karen Hoffmann.
The food was great and the staff were very friendly.
Unicorns may have been sacrificed to make tonight’s butternut squash ravioli.
Love the location and the food but the service is truly superb, good people!
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!
Beautifully prepared whole chicken, but I think the brisket may have stolen the show. And the pate... YUM!
Good food executed well . Not fussy. Local ingredients.
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.
Great food and great service. Will be back soon. Thanks!
Always great food and friendly service. Awesome neighborhood spot!
Had a great dinner, nice atmosphere, good noise level.
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.
Excellent food! Love the rotisserie chicken and brisket, as well as the salads, mussels and yummy side dishes. AND the music is phenomenal :-)
The bistro steak complimented by gaufrettes and fried peppers was superb.
The monkfish in saffron sauce outstanding.
We enjoyed everything from start to finish! Nice atmosphere too and friendly service.
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.
Consistently interesting seasonal sides, great vegetables and fantastic chicken as well as other options for main dishes
Awesome people great service.
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!
Absolutely amazing food and desert!!!!
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.
Solid. Real neighborhood spot for locals. Lovely staff, consistently great food.
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.
One of my favorite restaurants in SF, and definitely a hidden gem. Hoffman's is a little on the pricey side, but you're paying for great food and good service.
Great food and a very nice server made for a great experience.
