Always a wonderful dining experience at PPC, delicious house made burata, pasta bolognese, and pizzas made to order 😋❤️ A great wine selection as well, & did I mention Mitchell's!?!

If you are like me, you just assume this place is a place to grab a bagel while your kids play at the park - but I’m here to bust that myth! Went for dinner with a group of 6 that couldn’t commit to being there all at the same time so I chose it Thinking we would order at the counter. But no it’s table service, the staff were professional servers, super patient and helpful with our dietary needs and food was great! I totally underestimated this place but we will be back.

A very casual spot to hang out and eat surprisingly wonderful food! It was so good we went back for breakfast a couple days later. It isn't a luxurious environment, but the food it good enough to make up for the ambiance.

A good place, a little loud, great service and atmosphere. Pizza margherita was short on basil. Not the best one around.

Outstanding! Found it on the internet looking for a good restaurant. We were in SF for two days. Their ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible. Liked it so much we went back for lunch. I believe they have four restaurants spread throughout San Francisco.

We dined on the night of a PRIDE fundraiser. The cafe was
Very full but the service never lagged. They had festive themed menu items for the occasion. We will definitely return as food was excellent.

We had a $45 pre-fixe menu, which was a bit steep for a very casual, noisy restaurant with underwhelming food with small portions. There were dogs permitted, and I find this disgusting in eating establishments. This is more a place to go for coffee or brunch, as the ambiance gives you cement floors, plastic chairs, and lots of noise. We weren't really sure who our server was, since there were three people who took turns showing up to the table... and they got our order wrong, then our main course was luke-warm. They seem to try to be creative with their food, but it just doesn't come off right. The one thing that I did like is that they were LGBTQ-friendly, and fit in with the surrounding neighborhood environment (there's a dog park across the street).

Really good food. We all shared a brussel sprouts starter, a burger, the steak, and the salmon. All were delicious. Beautiful location right next to a park. The floorplan is open space and very informal. Kids were running around and we had a blast. Not a formal spot but a great neighborhood gem.

I’ve had many a Caesar salad, one world class by a Michelin three-star chef; Precita Park’s was second only to that. Unique and DELICIOUS!!

The food and service was very good and, at 6:15 pm, there was plenty of "elbow room".

I had the fried chicken sandwich my friend ordered the hamburger and fries .

Both dishes were very creatively prepared and very tasty. A shared glass of house Cabernet went well with both meals.

Next time I will try the linguini with meatballs.

This place is a hidden gem! Food was great and the service was awesome! My server was Adam and another server was helping. Didn't get her name but they were both good. We started with the Brussels sprouts and truffle fries which are very good and since there was no ranch we asked for the garlic aioli. The garlic aioli was to die for! Then we finished off with their special that night which was the Winter salad and fried chicken sandwich. We had such an amazing experience and will definitely come back!

Incredibly nice servers! I originally requested a table outside but she reserved us a backup spot indoors when she realized the evening was getting cold and we might prefer to be inside, which we did. And really friendly and attentive and helpful the whole evening. Made for a great experience!

We went for Rainbow Pride night where all the food was rainbow themed. It was delicious and super fun. The staff was attentive and went out of their way to meet all our needs. It's a friendly neighborhood place that serves food a cut above your expectations. We will definitely return.

We love Precita Park Cafe for brunch and this was our first time trying dinner--the number of options were fantastic for pleasing everyone, and we especially appreciated that some came gluten free automatically (e.g. the mac and cheese).

Always a delicious, laid back experience and not overpriced. I love the cafe-European feel of a neighborhood restaurant that always feels welcoming and less pretentious. We ordered the steak and fish dishes which were both excellent along with the brussel sprouts which were amazing.

Took some extended family here for a casual birthday dinner (mom's) and felt very embarrassed for having done so. Service was abominable, and the restaurant was freezing. Pizza looked like frozen store-bought pizza, perhaps because it was about 60 degrees inside and the cheese solidified immediately. Will not be going back.

I’ve never experienced a sit down dinner where, in the middle of the appetizer, waitress comes by to offer to “box up” the remaining appetizer because the entree is ready. We told her just leave the entree and we’ll make room on the table. Same thing happened with the dessert. We weren’t done with the entree and she brought out our desserts. Usually I hate slow service, but felt rushed this time. On top of all that, I was double charged for my beverage. Food was tasty and well presented, but doubt I will go back.

Precita Cafe is one of our favorite neighborhood places to eat. Good good and great service. One example of the service: it was very cold outside the night we went and without us asking, the hostess brought brought us cups of hot water to drink and warm up while we got settled. Nice touch!

Food was great! Only complaint, we were there late-ish on a week night. Waiter just left check after dinner, didn't even offer dessert. If you are open until 10pm and it's only 9:30pm you don't rush your customer out.
