Wow! The corn lasagna was amazing!
Wish I could get the recipe! Melissa's Lumberjack Cake is a staple in my entertaining menu (recipe online). She is very talented and innovative. Always so many things on the menu I want to try. Staff are so friendly and helpful.
Great food and comfortable seating. Every dish was tasty and ingredients were really fresh. Server made sure we were well taken care!
Great food and service, as always. Maybe even better than before covid. Would recommend to anyone.
Food and service were the best I have experienced ever.
Graham was amazing and we had the best time we couldn’t ask for better service in the tomatoes were some of the best ones I’ve ever had
Went for a celebratory dinner and it was a great night. great service, delicious food, in a cozy and intimate environment. We will be back!
It was amazing our experience! The waiters were super attentive and they gave me a birthday cake free!
The service is impeccable and every detail is thought of!
Beautiful and delicious food and excellent service
Loved it - great in every way
William is our preferred server; he’s so nice! The food is awesome, but I recommend picking what you want vs the tasting menu as you will get what you want (and the tasting menu portion is smaller and you end up paying more).
Recently had dinner at one of the outdoor tables. The outdoor space is pretty magical and the food and service were both superb.
I'm so glad they're back. Everything was perfect.
Delicious, gorgeous, creative..beautiful good and wonderful service
Went for a birthday dinner and sat outside. The food was amazing and the service wonderful as well! Can’t wait to go back
What can I say that hasn't already been said. The food was wonderful without being pretentious. And, oh, did I mention the wine list is stellar featuring California, French and Italian varietals. The wine sommelier was knowledgeable and very accommodating. So I highly recommend spending an evening dining here.
I loved the beef tartare and the duck confit. The corn lasagne was very underwhelming.
Great bread and good clean food.
Incredible service, from the front-of-house to the wait-staff. Everything felt effortless on their end, and the guidance through their menu was just at the level we wanted. The dishes were rich, flavorful, and well-apportioned. The dessert was the icing on the whole experience.
Came to Octavia for a special occasion, and were not very happy with this restaurant, though we thought the service was excellent. We felt the menu was very limited and none of the 5 dishes we tasted stood out as something we would want to even try again, much less purchase. We're not super salt-sensitive but several dishes overdid it specifically in this area. All plates presented better than they tasted. The deserts offered to us were three uninspiring variations on "pudding" - a semifreddo, a cremeux, and a posset. We passed on those.
There are many other places in SF doing much better takes on pasta, whether you're looking for novel or classic preparations.
It was great. The service was really good. They offered a tasting menu the night we were there, and it was delicious. Maybe I just love dessert that much, but the Malted Chocolate Cremeux is absolutely the star of the meal for my wife and I (our server was sooo nice, and brought us a second helping of it)
Everything was fantastic. Our server Zach was outstanding as was the food. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Nothing like pre-pandemic Octavia. Used to be our favorite restaurant in the city, and we were so looking forward to the reopening, but sadly disappointed. I completely empathize with restaurant workers, and what they’ve had to deal with for the last 18 months, and rea
The food was good with unique flavors and good presentation, but portions were very small. Similar to a tasting menu. Our server made a few remarks that seemed like passive insults.
We LOVE Octavia! Came here for New Year's Eve dinner in 2019 which was fantastic but hadn't made it back until now (July 2021) for a nice post-pandemic date night. Food, service and ambience are all great and we love the parklets they built for outdoor dining. Will not let that long go by again before our next visit!
Great to see the world returning to normal!
Excellent meal as always. Thanks for bringing excitement to food :)
Post-pandemic Octavia is even better than before. The food is fantastic -- so creative and full of flavor. They are really on top of their game. Highly recommended.
Food, service, and ambiance are always fantastic here. Highly recommend Octavia as a special occasion meal.
one of the best restaurants in SF, and probably the country. always amazing food, service, and drinks. all my love and respect to the team, forever.
Food is fantastic! I'd give 6 stars if it were allowed. Sat outdoors in a parklet, which is why ambiance didn't receive a 5. Noise level was mainly due to a very loud table of women that apparently thought it was okay to screech at the top of their lungs because they were outside.
Being seated in the dopey parklet detracted considerably from this experience. It was like sitting at the kids’ table at your least favorite uncle’s house — if he loved indie rock.
New outdoor dining is great, a bit noisy with street traffic on Bush side.
Food was amazing, flavors were new, balanced and not fussy. Want to try tasting menu next time.
Service was attentive but not too much. Food brought out in timely manner.
Overall wonderful meal.
Very fun and relaxed dining experience. They accommodated to our 6 pax and sat us on their large round dining table which was great so that everyone could talk to each other easily. Service was casual and relaxed which we truly appreciated. Food was absolutely delicious! All dishes were on point with seasonings and flavor. Portions were great. Can’t wait to be back again!
Fantastic dining experience. The appetizers came in a rush after we ordered but we were okay as we were dining a little later. Every dish was perfectly seasoned and the green hummus and campanelle were both excellent!
Octavia is back and as great as ever. It remains in my Top 5 favorites in SF.
Just blown away, what an absolute perfect meal. Every single thing was amazing! Thank you!!!
Food incredible. Service was amazing. So glad they’re open again!
Absolutely fabulous. The fried cauliflower and delicata squash were amazing, and had such unique sauces and flavors. Highly recommend.
Great location. Excellent food.
It was good but not sure if it deserves the Michelin Star. It’s really good but not sure if it compares to some of the other 1&2 star places we’ve been to. Again not saying it was bad just doesn’t live up to the star.
Such a cute place. Food was outstanding. Service was excellent. Ambience was perfect. Try the squid !
