OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)

Fabulous food. Went for dinner, everything we ordered was perfectly cooked and came out in a timely fashion. Price is reasonable for San Francisco. Small setting but that doesn’t put a damper on anything. Did feel a little rushed to order but I think that was just our waitress was of being attentive. Again food is so good. I’ve also heard really good things about their brunch!

Great food but too noisy to have any kind of
Conversation. Not a place for a leisurely dinner because the restaurant tries to rush
you out.

Good food and service but the seating is jammed together. We were 5 at a table and barely had room for our plates. The Feisty Chicken bowl is worth trying as well as the bacon wrapped scallops.

Bad (very bad) service and seriously over priced breakfast food. We did the bottomless mimosa thing but had to beg for the 2nd pitcher. The food was tasty though! But I would not go back. If I’m going to be ignored, I’m certainly not paying $18 for 2 eggs and bacon!

Very noisy, food was average, they got the wine wrong and it was opened without showing us the bottle, we wouldn’t go back mainly because of the noise.

They sat us 15 minutes late and ignored us for the first ten minutes we were waiting, even though we had a reservation. The waiter was extremely rude both in the way he spoke to us and practically ripped the menus from our hands when we were done. The food was poor. They also did nothing for the birthday even though they called to confirm we had a birthday on that reservation.

Food was delicious. Started with their take on Tom Yum soup, hot and sour, which was delicious and full of seafood and fresh vegetables. I had the panyang curry with crispy pork belly. So good! I’ll definitely be coming back.

Our first experience overall was lovely and delightful. We visited KS for brunch and lunch while we were visiting Castro District. We were seated right away for brunch and our waiter Kip was polite and attentive, for brunch and lunch. Our first brunch, we ordered Belly Ranchero and Frisco Benedict and it was tastefully delightful. The two Bloody Mary is a must to taste. Our second visit for lunch, we ordered Bulgogi burger and mom’s Benedict-another amazing meal. I would recommend KS and would be back again in our next visit..

Food was spoiled by overly sweet and cloying sauces. Most dishes didn’t come together. Service, while very fast, was totally indifferent. Techno music was grating on the ears.

"Castro Tower" is one of the Most Delicious! dishes I've ever tasted...will go back just for that. My friend said his pad thai was wonderful. Our party was rushing to a nearby movie so didn't have time to explore more dishes, but look forward to doing so in the near future.

No idea how this place is staying open. Gloppy, uninspiring and overpriced. Won't go back.
