Presidio Social Club
What Insiders Are Saying
With both food from the 50s and kale, in a pseudo country club environment. Presidio Social Club works out better than we'd have expected.
A lovely venue for Easter dinner and any other occasion. Simple , honest food, great SF ambience and friendly wait staff
This was the worst experience I have had in the three years of visiting the restaurant. The service and staff were unfriendly. Different from the warm and bubbly staff I have come to know. The food came cold/Luke warm.
I took my parents here for their 40th anniversary a few months back - we loved it. Today really changed my mind. I wanted to go somewhere I wouldn’t feel away from home, on Easter. Not sure I’ll come back.
It was a bit crowded due to Easter Sunday brunch. We sat outside and luckily weather was perfect. Food was good and satisfying but not memorable. Thin pieces of ham on plain English muffin with poached egg and hollandaise were decent, but presentation was bland and unimpressive. Small menu. Venue is picturesque. You have to pay for parking there, even on Easter Sunday.
The servers were great but the time between ordering and being served was excessive. In addition, one member of our party was served an entree that was cold when it arrived at the table and had to request it be replaced resulting in further delay. Add to that being seated against a very cold drafty wall ... The restaurant was not overly busy (multiple empty tables) so it is hard to understand the kitchen delays. Although I may return for brunch where past experiences have been good, I am unlikely to return for dinner.
The best thing about Presidio Social Club was the ambiance and setting. The food was okay. Service was lacking. We won’t be returning.
Yes! This place is a gem, and the cocktails were creative and tasty!
Great food, good ambiance.
Love this place! Went on the way back to the Peninsula from Muir Woods. Great food, staff and ambiance on a lovely sunny day... can’t fault them! Oh, and very nice cocktails!
Does not disappoint; can always count on a good meal, good bar, and great service.
We sat outside which was lovely. Inside is nice too but noisy for my tastes. Limited menu.
My order- catch of the day was absolutely perfect !
However, I asked for some bread and was given such
But it was stale and dry must have been 2-3 days old!
Nice casual, charming place with good food a comprehensive wine list. Warm welcome from the team and good service
Excellent setting and service
The food was good, the crowd was energized and they seated us 40 minutes past our reserved time. We barely saw our waitress all night. The woman behind the bar was outstanding... friendly, helpful and great at her job.
The Presidio Social Club, was what we had expected, eclectic, lively and excellent food. Our waiter however did not seem very interested in serving us, he did not smile or make any small talk. Afterwards we supposed that maybe he was having a "bad day" or had something heavy on his mind. His demeanor did not deter from our enjoyment of the meal and the ambiance, however it seemed inconsistent with the vibe of this fun establishment.
A great experience, nothing to criticize. Even has easy, free parking! Great bar... I can’t wait to return, I think I’ll try the Sunday brunch.
Food here is consistently good overall. Nice wine and beer selections, too. Only complaint was the (lack of) vegetable assortment with the fabulous chicken--usually there's a wonderful mix of veggies, like carrots, green beans, cauliflower, etc. This time there were only potatoes and 2 pieces of cauliflower. Still, a great meal....
Excellent all around! Very classy very delish. I want to come back for their cocktails :)
Great food and atmosphere! Try sitting on the patio on a nice day if you can.
We went for Sunday brunch. The food is wonderful although the options were very few. There were more drink options than food options. Our waiter was less than good. He never asked us if we wanted coffee or desert and never stopped by to check on us until our plates were cleared by other staff. Then he just left our check without saying a word. I get bad days, but this was just bad. Our food was delivered by other staff and was fresh and hot, so that was the saving grace. Great food and comfortable.
Been several times; always the worst service and the food isn't special or great for the value. This trip was the WORST -- the burger looked like a cheap coffee shop:( Not going back.
we had a lovely evening in this charming place. Nice crowd, good food, friendly service. A total pleasure and excellent Friday night eat-out.
Loved the view and the food
great evening -- I have had more attentive and engaged service before at PSC, but overall a favorite eating out destination for us.
Great service. Very pricey wine list. Not much else to say here. Nice ease of making reservation
Wish the server would have prompted us regarding appetizer/salad course. I misread my menu item and thought the enttree included a salad. Food was good!
The restaurant is very consistent in food and service quality and we have been fans for more than 10 years. It’s one of our favorite SF spots.
If you are on your ‘Jack Jones’ then grab a seat at the counter bar and meet most interesting diners from local, but also far and wide places and enjoy not only the food, but great bar tenders and interesting conversations.
Highly recommended - please enjoy 😊
We arrived at around 5:30 p.m, and the restaurant was quiet with a few people dining. By the time we left at 8:30 p.m. the restaurant was full and had people waiting. The noise level did increase but really did not affect our conversations. Our server Robin was AMAZING. Despite being busy, she was very attentive and took great care of us. She knew the menu, answered our questions and really knew the wine list.
great evening pre-performance. parked in Presidio and LYFTed to and from theater. Great unhurried and delicious dinner. Great food and terrific service!
Fun atmosphere, great food and drink.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We come here regularly. We recently came with a party of 7 and I requested & got a round table in the small dining room. It is less noisy than the main room. We were all happy with the food. I had the vegetarian option an dycon radish cake, most unusual and interesting. I like that the Presideo Social Club
does the standards, liver and onions, meatloaf, and something completely different.
My only complaint is the rooms are cold, historic buildings are hard to heat.
Great food and drinks!
Our table was in the middle of the section and every time someone pass by they were hit my elbow and it was just a very uncomfortable seating. The chicken noodle soup was warm not hot. The ribeye steak with truffle fries was over done when we ordered it medium rare.
Outstanding standing ! The best place to go for brunch or lunch on a Sunday !! The food was
Amazing , service and ambience! We enjoyed ourselves so much ! Highly recommend this lovely place!
Being in the City, it's plus is that there is easy parking. Brunch/lunch menu was limited; overall food was okay. Our party had the chicken soup, cheese burger and kale salad which were decent entrees. They serve a very good vanilla creme brûlée cheesecake and warm beignets with chocolate sauce for dessert.
I would very hesitatingly recommend this restaurant. After making reservations online, I needed to ask if dogs are allowed. It took 7 phone calls and voicemails before someone finally returned my call. FYI- they are allowed on the patio. Our party of five was early and I checked to see about being seated early. The hostess was unfriendly, at best, and actually borderline rude when my husband checked in again 20 minutes later. Not a great way to welcome guests.
Our server was much much friendlier. Service was extremely slow. I’d like to say it was because it was a gorgeous day and the restaurant was full when we were seated, but wouldn’t you staff your restaurant accordingly when you see your reservations are full?
Our entrees were good to fair. Unfortunately, after all the good things I’d heard about the restaurant, we were disappointed. From the difficulty actually speaking to someone to the surly hostess to the slow service, we were disappointed that the restaurant did not live up to expectations. With all the other terrific/friendly dining options in SF, we will most likely not return.
Little pricey. But well prepared and tasty. Nice space and comfortable.
Wonderful ambiance, fantastic service. Food was a little cold but overall very delicious. Great experience and will definitely be back!
