"Had dinner upstairs, prior to a concert at SF Jazz. Fresh ingredients prepared perfectly. Began with a salad, an excellent mix of ingredients, as well as the felafel, which was moist and mildly spiced. The vegetable pot pie was super fresh and tasty with a terrific mix of veggies. The pastry was light and crisp and the sauce was perfect. Never had sweeter, crisper corn. Yum. My husband had the scallop dish - presentation and taste was tops. Great cocktails. Service was excellent. We will return."See more

"Portions were small. Dishes were creative and beautifully plated but flavor seems to be lacking. They offered a prix fixed menu of three or four courses. We each chose the four courses plus the bread appetizer which cost $17 but still left hungry. I like the location since we were going to a show at the Orpheum. The relaxed contemporary setting and drink selection was nice."See more

"I thought this was going to be a disappointment because after being seated, I was passed at least 25 times by wait staff who completely ignored me despite my efforts to catch their attention until I was able to get the attention of the sommelier who took my wine order and got my waiter. But from there it went uphill quickly. My Gem Salad was perfection! I don't think I've ever had a salad that tasted so fresh! And the pasta was also delicious. Although I did have to ask twice for my bill .. being in a hurry to catch a lecture across the street by the brilliant Dr. deGrasse Tyson, once presented I pointed out that they had failed to add the glass of wine. The sommelier reviewed the bill, agreed, but then comp'd me the wine because I had waited so long to be served ... and I assume for my honesty. I will definitely be back when I have more time to linger and choose from their full menu."See more

"Before seeing a show at the Orpheum, I took my daughter here for her 31st birthday, and we were both pleasantly surprised and delighted with the restaurant! When I made reservations, I made a note that it was for her birthday. When we walked in, we were greeted by an exceptionally friendly and courteous hostess who wished my daughter a Happy Birthday, asked us which area we wished to sit (street view or interior), then proceeded to take us to our table. Within a minute, the waiter, who was also very friendly took our order for some appetizers and also made a couple excellent suggestions including the appetizers and the wine selection (Rose & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon!!!). We had the arancini, heirloom tomatoes and the homemade tater tots. All were excellent. For the main meal, my daughter had the fettucine with the pork and beef meatballs in a wonderful bolognese sauce. I had the Llano seco pork loin that was outstanding - moist and very flavorful! We could not resist their Sweet Endings! My daughter had the cheesecake, and I had the breadpudding with the recommended splash of warm kalua! All to die for!!! You can count on a return visit!!!"See more

"We picked this restaurant because the cuisine sounded intriguing. It did not disappoint. We cook and eat regional indian food frequently. The food itself was “the best I’ve had since I came to North America” (my English husband). The portions were reasonable and beautifully presented. The flavors made us think. Our server was very pleasant and answered our questions, understanding our interest in this cuisine. We ate before an SFJazz concert, and had plenty of time with a 6 PM reservation for a 8:30 performance. We will definitely be back."See more

"Perfect non-sushi Japanese experience. Well-crafted comfort food at its best -- the dishes are tasty & interesting to look at. Pricing is totally reasonable for a high-end meaal (~$50pp with some drinks). And of course, plan to take a dip in the onsen after you eat! Only FYI is the neighborhood -- it's smack dab in the middle of the Tenderloin, so be prepared for what that entails. But don't let that stop a great meal & soak from happening here."See more
