Excellent neighborhood restaurant, always enjoy going there.
One of the best dining experiences...great food and outstanding services. This restaurant is a definite add to my favorite list.
Always superior service and ambiance. Thank you! I want to keep this beautiful patio a secret.
The Magic Flute was perfect for our lunch with our friends for birthdays. The food was delicious and the service was also good. The quiche was creamy. The lamb burger was perfectly cooked. The steak for the salad and steak sandwich was yummy. They were happy to serve the cake that we brought, for a service fee, and to pack up the remaining cake for our two birthday friends. We were all very satisfied with our food. And, we stayed for quite a long time talking. It was a great day.
Nice work, Phil!
We had a great evening. Excellent traditional Italian food and very attentive service.
My new favorite restaurant!!! Cannot believe I have never been here, especially since I grew up in the city. Will make up for it for the rest of my life! What a fantastic little nugget in the city - a darling patio tucked in the back with the most special menu and the best mimosa I've had in some time. Everything was prefect - the staff, the food, the service, the ambiance - we struggled to decide what to order, and will return to try what we didn't. Cannot wait to return. Exceeded expectations in every way. Thank you so much!
This is one of the restaurants I love to go to in SF. Food is always wonderful, it is always warm and inviting and parking is relatively easy. Charming place not to be missed.
I don't think I have been to the Magic Flute in over 30 years. It is a great neighborhood gem. It was nice not to be bombarded with super loud music or a din of other guests talking. Great replacement for the closed Osteria.
We love the outdoor seating, the service is always great and the food is really good!
This was a great location! I love the outdoor patio. We went at 11am and it wasn’t too crowded. The food was great! I got the Benedict Florentine. Would highly recommend and definitely coming back.
The Magic Flute never disappoints! Brought my mother here to celebrate a special occasion as it is her favorite place in the city. Fantastic service, food, and ambiance as always.
Wonderful ambiance, delicious food, low noise level and great service. This is my go-to restaurant!
Lovely place. Would go back Would go for brunch and experience the outdoor garden area.
Food was well prepared.
The portions were small.
Ambience was good.
Surprised that bread not surved.
The whole experience was just so enjoyable. Lovely setting out on the back patio under the atmospheric lights, super friendly and enjoyable service - we were so well looked after, AND the food was just delicious. My quiche was perhaps the best I've ever had. I'm so happy I revisited Magic Flute after years since I was last year, but it will definitely not be years before I go back again!!!
Fabulous as always! Superb fried clamari. love the salmon, they always get a thin crispy outside layer with melt in your month insides. Rather than have an extensive liat of selections, they have a modest list that is extraordinarily prepared. We have gone there for years including for special celebrations and private parties for 15-20 friends. Good wine list, knowledgable waiters, and impeccable service!!
The staff was able to accommodate half our party being late and shift our reservation to a better time. The food was great. The ambiance was lovely.
We always love to go to the Magic Flute. It is a wonderful San Francisco institution. The food is fabulous and the prices are reasonable. It is the “go to” brunch place for Pacific Heights gentry.
Lunch at the Magic Flute has been an annual tradition for a friend and me ever since we met there 20 years ago. It never fails to delight. If you want to avoid the seldom onerous (but nevertheless there it is) conversational noise, choose an outdoor table.
Amazing experience! Made my boyfriend’s birthday so special with amazing food and wine.
This a neighborhood favorite. I love introducing new friends to this little jewel. Always superb morning. Noon and night. It is also a little known treasure with outdoor seating year round.
I love the warm welcome I always receive from the owner and the staff.
Love this restaurant. I feel they are happy to see me again each time I come by. I love the blackened salmon, but everything I have tried is very nice. There are 4 areas to sit in, and each has its own great atmosphere.
Always great. Get the shrimp linguini pasta special!
Magic Flute is a charming, well-priced restaurant with delicious food. If you're having dessert don't miss the chocolate cake. Amazing!
Brunch with six frjiends
Always a wonderful place for brunch!
As always dining at The Magic Flute was a wonderful experience. The restaurant is so charming and the service is excellent. Our waitress who we have had before could not have been nicer. She is warm and
friendly and does a great job at making you feel welcome. All four of us agreed that The Magic Flute is
our favorite restaurant.
The food was amazing and the staff was very attentive.
Being Thanksgiving weekend, there weren’t a lot of people dining, which made our experience unique. The service was fantastic.
I had the ricotta and truffle ravioli, which was delicious and well balanced. Highly recommend the Magic Flute (get a table in the patio if you can).
A fabulous neighborhood restaurant I frequent often. I was slightly disappointed this time to be seated at a less desirable location in the middle room. I also felt the servers who I did not recognize as regular staff, rushed our dining experience. I love the Magic Flute and will continue to patronize on a regular basis, but feel honest feedback will help keep this iconic favorite up to par. Food was delicious as usual.
This restaurant is exactly as it should be, a lovely, unpretentious, not-too-expensive neighborhood restaurant. Although not in a top category, the food is better than one would expect, with some delicious egg dishes, lovely beignets, and very good wine at reasonable prices. The owner/manager and staff are always friendly.
Magic Flute never disappoints. Phil the owner is always so warm and his staff is fantastic. A true SF tradition. Love this restaurant!
Thank you Magic Flute for your years of amazing food and service.
Food was good. Ambiance good. Waiters good. Very noisy - not good for business meeting.
Always very friendly service.!
I am a repeat customer and love this location. Parking can be the only problem.
Birthday. So accommodating. Excellent service. Same menu forever. Very delicious not stellar inventive but just yummy. Been here for forever. Obviously they know what they’re doing. Have eaten regularly here over the years.
