My wife and I found a last minute spot in this our favorite restaurant in the city
Didn’t disappoint at all once again
we’ve eaten here a few times ,this time was just as good as before
Can’t wait to be back
On a Cook’s tour with my crew.
Saw many good reviews for this Resteraunt and went for some ideas.
Atmosphere and service was very good.
Food was average, not at all to the standard I expected from one of San Fran’s top rated spots.
Steak was tough salmon was good but peas dry.
Would not recommend this place!
A terrific spot in a Japantown/Lower Pacific Heights residential neighborhood. The food is delicious and thoughtfully prepared, and the service we received was excellent. Every little detail down to the thinness of the water glasses is considered, which all sum to a wonderful dining experience.
Superb meal with great flavors. Melissa and her team has done it again.
Incredible restarant! Very well organized staff & everyone does their job superbly. Not a large menu but the choices are mouth-watering!
The small plates weren’t as small as the server led us to believe... we had plenty of food, while dining on an assortment of what she described as bites and small plates. The flavors were delicious. I’m glad we ate here.
The only downside was that it was a little loud... which could’ve just reflected the other guests that evening.
Will definitely return!
Host seated us as scheduled. Server was attentive, let us try several wines before we made our selection, and took time to explain menu and special of the day. Food severd hot, displayed nicely, and taste was well beyond our expectation. For desert recommend the Pink Lady apple, honey tofee with creme fraiche. We will definitely return and highly recomend Octavia
Food and service was excellent
Amazing food and atmosphere.
Literally one of the best meals I've ever had. The food and service were top notch all around. I can't say enough about how great Octavia was. Stop reading and go book a reservation!
Food and service was very good. Servers all worked together. Lovely restaurant.
My favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Excellent food. Great service without any pretentiousness. Nice ambiance. Always a great overall meal experience.
Wonderful food and service !
Duck confit is on of the best I ever had.
Papardelle with mushrooms is great too
Chocolate tart with caramel ice cream superb
Fantastic food, great environment and really good and smart service. Highly recommend this place.
What a fabulous innovative restaurant! We loved our dinner here whilst visiting San Francisco and highly recommend it to anyone. Imaginative food, great ambiance and service. A fun and wonderful eating experience. Everything was so delicious and reasonably priced. We will be giving our friends visiting SF the heads up to make a special trip there.
Wonderful date night spot! My husband and I moved to New York City and look forward to our dinner reservations at Octavia every time we come back! It is our favorite! Recommend the duck, filet, and chocolate soufflé for dessert! Delish!
A wonderfully thoughtful, comfortable experience. Dishes were interesting and, more importantly, delicious. The service was top notch, friendly and understated. Truely a superb night out.
Everything was great. Always a good choice!
Excellent food. Great service. Loved celebrating my 19 year-old’s birthday at the chefs table. Highly recommended.
Everything from the service to the food was perfect!!!
Had the chef's tasting menu. Highly recommended!
Fantastic food, fantastic ambiance, fantastic service. Overall, great dining production.
We were visiting and found this restaurant on Eater. I am glad we came in. The service, food and room were all great.
Food was delicious and well paced. Service was very good, our server was awesome, wish we remembered his name. Overall great experience, we’ll be back.
Ordered the chefs tasting menu. About 11 courses of delicious food. The staff was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was cozy.
The menu is very limited, the food is not anything to remember or write about!
Great time and good food
Absolutely amazing place we come over and over again with local and out of town friends. Great food and ambience and amazing wine list. Samantha who helps us with seating and reservation is amazing person who is always responsive and gracious
Octavia is superb in every way. It is pricey, but worth every penny. The menu is very eclectic, and the flavors wonderful. We had a real dining experience_____2 and 1/2 enjoyable hours. All the dishes were described by either our marvelous waiter, Kevin, or a deliverer. Kevin apologized for the delay in our entree, which actually we didn’t mind, and comped us a delectable salad to share. A great evening all around.
Valentine’s menu was unimpressive. My favorite was the salad. The wagyu was chewy. The forbidden rice desert was less than average. It was my first time at Octavia. I need to go try their regular menu that my serious foodie friends laud.
The meat in the main course was tough. Otherwise, everything was great.
We went there excited to try out the tasting menu, which consisted of 4 courses. Our reservation was at 6:00 pm and by 8:00 we still hadn't even received the 3rd course - there were 30 minutes between the time the servers cleared our plates to the time they brought the next course. We looked around and saw a distribution of other customers experiences - some were int he same boat as us, but others were getting their courses more quickly so it was inconsistent. The kitchen looked extremely backed up and by 8:00 diners were lined up around the walls waiting to be seated but the tables were all full due to the delay. We asked for our desserts to be wrapped up but then were told it would be ice cream so we said nevermind, we would wait. Then 20 minutes later our check came with our dessert to go. We didn't feel like dealing with the back and forth so we left. All in all, just a disappointing experience.
A bit of a limited menu, but dishes are well done and delicious made with fresh ingredients.
Would definitely return to Octavia.
Great food, but the day we went on a Sunday night had super slow service. 2hr 45 mins for our meal. Largest gap from last appetizer to main entree was 50 mins.
Had dinner with friends in the City and start to finish was first rate.
Service superb and Kevin, who served us was just great.
The food was outstanding. We had several
App’s all well prepared and tasty and the rib eye was absolutely killer
We brought our own wine and wine service
Great as well
I think this place is great .
One of my best dining experiences of the last
Couple of years
I look forward to a return visit soon
Michael Sour very sweet on this place
This is a special restaurant. The staff was gracious and welcoming. The food intriqueing, delicious, fresh and generally wonderful.
Simply excellent. Great food, friendly and knowledgeable staff, unpretentious atmosphere.
An outstanding neighborhood restaurant for any occasion. Extremely friendly and welcoming - all the staff seemed happy. Each dish was very good to exceptional. Limited, thoughtful menu of seasonal tastes. No complaints whatsoever.
