Great overall feel. Service was outstanding. Multiple different servers making sure we had everything we needed. Food was fantastic, we did the tasting menu and were very happy we did. Highly recommend.
We took a tasting menu. Most of the food was very good. However, I was a little disappointed with the red snapper that they served for the entree. It was very dry. But the duck in the entree on the other hand was pretty good. So overall a good experience. The service was very impressive.
I was so disappointed that my experience this week was not the same incredible dining experience I had when I visited this restaurant a year ago.
Always exceptional and such a lovely menu - very tasty!
1 year anniversary
Dinner was good, the only complaint I have is the salad was unweildy. The lettuce was in whole leaves and had it been on a flat plate would have been fine but in a small bowl very difficult to cut.
The server was not friendly and rude. I went before and did not experience this type of service. Unsure about coming back here again.
Truffle risotto was amazing!
Exquisite. Flavors pop without being over the top. Excellent presentation and service. Beautiful, tasty, seasonal food. Our favorite restaurant in SF.
Very enjoyable meal with generous portions. Creative food combinations with excellent preparations. House baked bread was over the top!
Lovely service and food was very good- wine by the glass limited but ok.
Definitely a great way to Spears an evening with someone special
It was both of our birthdays and we said that when we made the reservation. They had a window table ready for us and a happy birthday card on the table. The food and service were excellent.
My wife and me choose this place for my birthday dinner. Everything was just excellent starting welcoming, food, hospitality, interior and overall atmosphere.
Wow, superb flavours in a nice Atmosphere! Creative kitchen!
We like this Restaurant & only wish the menu was a bit more robust. They prepare & serve everything on the menu very well. Cute place but it gets crowded easily. None of my remarks are meant to imply we will not return, because we will.
Delicious! Best in class
Nice place for a special occasion. Very good ambiance. Love the appetizers and the ways how vegetables cooked. Not very impressed with main courses though.
Food just came across as too much “ California “, with too many veggies interfering with the protein. Potatoes vastly outnumbered the calamari in my starter and while the sliced filet was delicious, the undercard consisted of strange and paper-like vegetables which added nothing of value. Also ,our waitress maintained “ I couldn’t care less “ attitude. I love Frances, but this will be my first and last time at Octavia.
The food was good but too expensive for what we eat. We were not seat in a good location even if I booked in advance.
Food was very mediocre. The flavors were not there. Felt like they just threw in a bunch of things together.
wonderful experience, attentive wait staff, quiet kitchen, tasty wine list, creative recipes, will definitely be back!
I tried the tasting menu and everything was amazing. It’s a ton of food for a competitive price, and my server was very accommodating with boxing up leftovers that I couldn’t finish. Top notch service, ambiance, and a great first meal in San Francisco!
A Michelin Star restaurant worth to try. A small & intimate place, good food, good service.
Octavia is definitely one of our favourite restaurants in San Francisco. (we visit them from Japan!)
We visited Octavia a couple of years ago and our experience was better than our most recent one, primarily because the vibe now is very reserved in terms of service. It used to feel "warmer", like a neighborhood restaurant. Now, while the food was very good and worth trying, I'm not sure it would be our destination anymore.
Great service and accommodating staff. Tasting menu is a must. Will be back for other ala carte menu items.
A really good experience
Did the tasting menu, which we rarely do. The price was excellent for the selection of food. Each selection was very well prepared and presented. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal. Our servers were attentive and knowledgable about the food. Overall an excellent experience.
Great dinner! I made a mistake securing my reservation and the staff were very helpful accommodating us and got us a table. Thank you
Salad, roasted brussels sprouts, and snapper were very good. Filet mignon was dry and flavorless. Dessert was good but not great. Service was good.
First time there and it was great. Liver mousse was fantastic.
We ordered the special rib eye - it was terrible. We are very little of it and the wait staff didn’t ask if there was an issue. I’ve eaten at Octavia many times - it’s going downhill and I won’t eat there any more.
Recently visited for a birthday dinner, the 3rd such time my fiance and I have visited for one of our birthdays since Octavia opened. The food is outstanding, I highly recommend the tasting menu. It is a tad loud in the restaurant but manageable. The service was attentive and helpful. We both agreed we should visit Octavia more frequently.
Had their tasting menu and it was a wonderful way to enjoy a variety of their dishes. Out of the 8 or so dishes, only two were mediocre. The rest were delicious and very satisfying. Definitely did not leave hungry. Thought the price was very reasonable as well.
The latest in un-ending magic from Melissa Perello is the tempura mushroom dish on the tasting menu-Yummy, outrageous! The value simply cannot be ignored in increasingly high prices at fine restaurants.Very relaxed yet efficient service personnel flank the room at this super popular destination. Hands down THE place to go in San Francisco!
Really great ambiance and the tasting menu was a good value at $70/ per person.
my favorite restaurant in SF....love everyone there and they all feel like our family, Kim and Clarence Barker
Had a marvelous birthday celebration for my wife. Great dishes and fun preparations.
Excellent use of vegetables. However the tasting menu was substantial for two of us. We took some portions of the dishes home due to the amounts served.
Will definitely recommend restaurant to our family and friends. We will be back.
The food was delicious flavors were on pointe! We had the crab tagetelle and mignon. We also had some sides beef tartare and squid ink noodles. Wish we had time for dessert.
