 (San Francisco)·Dined 4 days ago

We loved the location of the restaurant. It has been awhile since I was last here. The service was excellent. The cocktail I ordered was really bad. I requested a cosmopolitan. However, our waiter a very nice man replaced with another type of drink. The food was good, I had the grilled salmon my husband the fish and chips.

The resaurant really needs a renovations. Probably food prices would go up. But I would pay to have a nice atmosphere.

Hs Lordships was extremely busy at the time we went. It appeared that there were numerous "groups" dining. Our reservation was for 1:00. Had to wait 40 minutes even with a reservation. Food was good, but being near the end of brunch I didn't feel relaxed or that we had the cream of the crop in pickings.

Second time we went for brunch. Best brunch around. Everything was great with the exception of our server. He felt his time was better spent talking to his co-workers. We asked for water which was 5 feet away and he took off for over 5 minutes to chat. Asked for additional champagne and he stood holding it a good 5 minutes again while charting. Very slow removing used plates. It was NOT busy in our section so this was upsetting.

Food and view were the best things about His Lordships. Service was adequate but nothing special. What ruined it for us was the mariachi music blasting so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation.

We had a pleasant business meeting with a very nice brunch. The food was well prepared and the quality was very good and the three of us enjoyed ourselves at this meal. We had made a reservation and a table was available in a timely manner. We would recommend this restaurant to some of her friends for their enjoyment and the opportunity to have a pleasant atmosphere and good food for a meeting.

H's Lordship is an old time favorite of mine. I have been coming here for years. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is lovely. It is definitely an elegant go to when you are not sure where to go. I've never been disappointed. And their party facilities and catering is good too. Nice place to have a party.

I loved the atmosphere- somewhat dated, but in a good way. Cozy, with a fireplace, plenty of seating but in small set off rooms- it was just a nice atmosphere. Spectacular views of San Francisco Bay, three bridges, San Francisco, wildlife, and plenty of water. It was gorgeous. The food selection was overwhelming! We were celebrating a birthday with a Sunday brunch, and the choices went on forever- all of it good. Breakfast items, every type of meat, huge dessert selection, salad, many different seafoods to choose from- it was tremendous. There was complementary champagne and soft drinks as well. The greeter was very friendly. She mentioned she had been with them for 17 years, and recognized the man in line in front of us because she had seen him plenty as a child in the restaurant. The wait staff was a bit lackluster, but not upsetting. I failed to ask the cost of the buffet, assuming it would be pricey, but was shocked at the price of just our three buffets. No one could eat enough food to charge that amount. So IF you are at all concerned about the price, ask beforehand. I would still go back, but it might be a once a year treat.

This was a disappointment to me.Looking from the pictures online I thought this would be more upscale.The furnitures and the carpet seems like it has not been updated ever.The place smell like a nursing home and look like a dilapidated nursing home.The owner is definitely not putting back into this establishment.Very sad.The food was served lukewarm. The only thing it had going was the view.THIS WOULD NEVER SURVIVE IN lOS ANGELES.What a Shame.

Location has such potential but it all stops there. The lobster was terrible — hard, chewy and tasteless. The highlight was the warm bread. While the wait staff was nice the service is what you’d expect at a diner not a restaurant portraying itself as a nice restaurant.

Very disappointed in the food. I can not believe how much the restaurant has gone down. Hislordship was one of my favorite restaurant because of quality of the food, high Quality ingredients this is the restaurant I know of.
Also while eating my food the waiter passed by and dropped the serving tray which consist of dirty dishes ,food and at that point glass was broken and all over my foot.

Went back to His Lordship's after a decade-long absence. Was hoping to celebrate my grandfather's death with my family. Service was terrible; didn't see the waiter until we'd been waiting twenty minutes, and then he kept on disappearing. Restaurant was out of some of their desserts, out of mashed potatoes, out of various bottles of champagne listed on the menu etc. Server was rude as well as incompetent. View was pretty at least, but we clearly were not respected as diners. Restaurant was way more expensive than food deserved.
Miserable dining experience.

Our group came here for Christmas day buffet brunch. We were seated in one of the large dining room without view of the bay. There was a good variety of food, carving station, omelet station, desserts, but the salad bar was limited. Service not rated high for 2 main reasons: The restaurant was not all ready to serve food when it opened at 10 am (still setting up and getting hot foods out for buffet line) and the staff at the carving station was not properly trained to cut beef roast AGAINST the grain. This restaurant facility is old and the chairs showed their age: many of the chairs were badly stained. They need to be replaced or redone. if you have a smaller party, you could be seated in the dining rooms with bay view, which is much nicer.

We had a very memorable going away for a coworker. Customer service was a plus! Only thing is, larger/rowdy crowds should be put in a private room so others can have nice conversation around them. Had a hard time passing through a group blocking walkway while taking pictures and playing holiday games (almost bumped into me and my plate coming back from steam table), otherwise food was excellent as always. I wish they’d offer holiday brunch all year long!

The food here was very good - there was quite a variety of food items to choose for your brunch. However, the waiter never came around to fill your coffe cup or water glass. The coffee cups are too small in the first place, allowing for dips and you need a refill. Also, the air conditioning did not cool the table where we were seated.

Very sad - has been a Bay Area staple for years and years. Had my rehearsal dinner there 29 years ago. Saturday night - 5 tables occupied in the whole restaurant, no one at the bar. Ordered the Prime Rib medium - came blood rare. Service was slow, unfriendly server, asked for chocolate cake for dessert, came with cheese cake. My cocktail was excellent! Drab, dreary, needs to be updated.

The food was very good. However poor presentation. The staff was not friendly and somewhat ride with mo manners. We sat late, restaurant said they were running 15 to 20min. behind. Bit it was actually more. Felt rushed! They were already clearing all the buffet stations near 7pm. Couldnt even enjoy dessert because cleared out. Some people were.complaining because they were promised buffet open until 8pm. Regardless, it was closing down well before that. Female hostess and waitress were friendly. Male staff were rude.
