Fabulous as always!!!
Overated. Food was just ok.
The food is always, always great and the ambience of the room is wonderful The service is flawless and we go back often.
Service was just so pleasant and comfortable. And the food was outstanding. Especially loved the risotto.
Amazing food - great service
Lovely ambience and a great relaxed environment
This was one of if not the best dining experience we’ve had. We were lucky to have a gift card so we went for the Chef Tasting and it was phenomenal. Dish after dish impressed and while they were all unique nothing was too far out there to be out of a standard persons comfort zone. The waiter was very informed and came around to check on us just the right amount. The only slight con is that the place is small with the tables close together so you can overhear your neighbors. Might brother some people more than others
Great environment, awesome service to deliver unique mix of familiar flavors. snapper was coked perfect, shshito app was a great dish to share. Sourdough cheesecake was unique and worthy of another visit.
Awesome Service and Food! Looking forward to my next visit to Octavia!
Not bad although they were struggling to seat us. Seems the timing was off and our reservation seating was not ready
TERRIBLE service. Banal food. Overrated. Don't bother.
Incredible experience at Octavia! Nice quiet ambience, the staff was great and the food was incredible. We sampled quite a few dishes off the menu and each and every one blew us a way. Our party of 5 could not stop raving about how good it was and a couple of us even re-ordered a few dishes! I would highly recommend this amazing restaurant run by a very talented female Michelin star awarded chef and look forward to her new restaurant opening in L.A.
A huge thanks to everyone at Octavia for an amazing evening!
David our server was lovely and attentive. We had the tasting menu. The egg, waygu beef were both “5”s the rest was closer to 4s. Cept the squid ink cold pasta, which we both found inedible!
If I lived in the hood I would certainly go there and try all the dishes. Since I live pretty far I don’t think i will be seeing that delicious egg ever again :(
Our weekly visit and dinner to Octavia is always a treat no matter how often we go!!! WE LOVE YOU ALL AT OCTAVIA!!!!
Did the prix-fixe and it was great. Fish, deviled egg and salad were my favorite dishes. The true stand out were their AHHmazing desserts!
The food is always delicious at Octavia. Last weekend we tried the tasting menu which is a great value in addition to being excellent! The entire staff was so kind and friendly too! I'm looking forward to returning.
Absolutely delicious. Upscale relaxed atmosphere and we cannot wait to go back.
Service was extremely slow: we spent 2 1/2 hours at the restaurant having a two course meal. Food was tasty, but two of our entrees arrived cold (after a 20 minute break after finishing the appetizers) and after never receiving the promised dessert menus we gave up and got the check. The other wait staff were helpful, but it didn’t make up for our own waiter being AWOL.
We loved our meal. Since we're used to sharing our food, we picked our favorites and made our own tasting menu, and it was just the right amount of food at a very reasonable price. We shared the duck liver mousse (not to be missed), Shishito pepper corn pudding, tomato soup, tagliatelle, red snapper, and the angel cake dessert. It was all wonderful, as were our vermouth-based cocktails.
One of the best restaurants I've experiences in San Francisco. Amazing.
We love Octavia....always have always will...the best in SF!!!
My boyfriend and I had a nice meal here for our second anniversary. We were impressed with the menu’s extensive and interesting vegetarian options and also liked how our waiter was eager and ready to walk through those with us. The timing between plates was perfect and we were also impressed with the drink options! Would definitely recommend and come again.
My pork dish was dry. The server seemed distracted and was not very friendly!
Not as good as it used to be, sadly.
Amazing! Service was excellent and so were the plates. Will come back again.
One of the best dining experiences my husband and I have had in a long time. Definitely in our top 10. Elegant but not fussy and truly delicious accompanied by great service.
We love you all Octavia.....YUM and such FUN!!!!
Everything about the meal was great with the exception of our server Eric. He was very cold throughout, never checked on us. We had empty plates for over 20 minutes between courses on one occasion. The expo team was great, we enjoyed the energy from the other servers, but Eric was out of it that night. When he came by to wipe the tables he pushed the entire napkin roll of breadcrumbs and scraps all over my lap and didn't say anything. Bad breath too which was foul. Otherwise, it's a great place, good food, very well prepared, but sadly left us with a below average experience which is too bad.
Food was spectacular and service great. This was an anniversary celebration and kudos to the waitstaff for bringing us each a piece of celebration cake complete with a candle. That was a nice touch. Just be extra vigilant if you have food allergies as a dish with pickles underneath lettuce was delivered to our table despite before ordering inquiring if anything with cucumbers could be left out of a dish - which we were assured was fine. I'll split the blame since we didn't specify pickles but since pickles are made from cucumbers I think the kitchen should have known not to serve it.
Start to finish it was wonderful! We had a great time. Every person we encountered working at Octavia extended the utmost kindness and the wealth of their experience and recommendations. I loved everything about the restaurant! A special thanks to David for being so accommodating and the woman who took our order and helped us w/ out gift certificates- both were so helpful and friendly. Thank you for providing such a lovely evening for me and my dear friend. Take care!
I appreciated the staff taking the time to find a wine I liked. It made the whole experience that much better. We did the tasting menu and it was superb. As most newer places, it was very loud. I personally, have a hard time having a conversation with someone when the noise level is that high. It would not stop me in returning to Octavia, though.
Really great place to have a outstanding dinner with top notch service and high quality ingredients!
Great food, great service!
It was our third time dining at Octavia and overall experience was good (except for the fact that drinks arrived after the appetizers). The appetizers were delicious, the salmon entrée was excellently executed, as was the pork chop. Do not remember what we had for dessert, probably something that did not impress us.
Wonderful! Would recommend to anyone! Made us feel very special on our anniversary.
Great! Amazing food & service. Very thoughtful staff—highly recommend!
Simply delicious food ... fresh and flavorful. Exceptional service and we had a really great experience. I had taken my friend there for her birthday and the thoughtfulness of the restaurant made it special.
Stunning! The food was spectacular! Elevated old favorites like tomato soup or pork chop to a level beyond! Flavor profiles were awesomely.
I had been here before and had good memories, today all this was simply reinforced: food fresh and well prepared, great selection of wines, service impeccable, friendly and competent - the atmosphere is warm and cozy, ice to be sitting in there while enjoying some delicious meal
Service was fantastic and super friendly.
Food was great and we really enjoyed the tasting menu.
