We’ve been going here for years, but not regularly. Last time I dined here was two years ago and it had been a great experience. Last week I took four friends and was embarrassed. The food was so badly prepared :/ the bathroom was filthy, and the service far below par for SF. I won’t be back until new management comes in which is needed ASAP.
Top 5 SF favorite.
This is my favorite place in SF. The food is always perfect, my group is always pleased, I get nothing but compliments, and it is easy on the wallet. Get the zucchini carpaccio, the fried calamari, the stuffed artichoke, and a couple of entrees to share. Don’t miss dessert or wine. This is one of the best restaurants and the best value in town. I come here two or three times a year. Once on every visit at least.
The food was very good and the service was
The downside was being seated at the table
closest to the door on a chilly night. The door was broken so it did not close
On its own. The door had big signs on it saying "please close door" but
most people ignored it. Fix the door! The restroom was terrible too. For such a successful place they can surely afford a few repairs and upgrades
Jackson Fillmore provides just the right amount of authentic rustic Italian cuisine to keep you coming back for more. Great sauces and perfectly cooked meats and poultry. Excellent selection of Italian wines, including some surprise. Very casual and open to large parties.
And it is in a great neighborhood with good public transportation.
I will return.
Always a great meal at Jackson on Filmore, I can criticize anything about this restaurant, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the food is simply great and the price is very reasonable .. its always comfortable to just sit at the bar as well ..
Outstanding in every way. San Francisco staple for authentic Italian cuisine. There menu curates Italy's best dishes coupled with amazing daily specials. A must-visit.
You cannot say "where is a great place for Italian food in the City?" without bringing up Jackson-Fillmore Trattoria. Great staff, great food, yummy wine, and something to talk about for days. Thank you for, yet again, setting the bar for a great dinner out.
We like the food here, we don't like the long wait for our table, even with a reservation made long in advance, and eventually our food which took forever to be served, even on a rather 'slow' Sunday night dinner. The manager and his assistant didn't t seem to care, never checked on our experience which was a special occasion with six family members present. Charged us for two bottles of wine corkage without even changing the glasses from white to red.
Very friendly service, made us feel we were family. Delicious fresh food!
