OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)
5.0  Dined on November 28, 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Public House. I attended the restaurant with a friend and we made reservations then had to alter the reservation time due to changes in our schedules. When I called about this change, a member of the Public House team was very understanding and accommodative. The environment at Public House is very beautiful and inviting, sophisticated but laid-back - and the menu had an awesome variety! I look forward to going again soon.

The server delivered our lunch and then never came back to see whether the meal was satisfactory. The french fries had been served cold. Once we flagged her down she promptly brought new hot fries from the kitchen, but it took a long time to get her attention and others ere halfway through their meal before the new fries arrived.

Had lunch with a friend. The wait staff was subpar - forgotten drink orders, sides, condiments, even water (had to ask multiple times). Food was nothing special. Fries were completely over done, drinks were weak. Eventually had to go to the bartender to get our check. Just a mediocre experience overall. Spend your money elsewhere in midtown.

Was charged $100 more than what my receipt says. Called every day for a week and was told a manager would get back to me. Never did. I now had to get my bank and lawyer involved. Used to be my favorite place. Will never go back. And will make sure everyone I know never goes.

They had changed the menus but still had the old ones on the site. Waitress didn't write our orders down and got the beer order wrong. Then one of our guests got the wrong cheese on his cheeseburger. Again she didn't write down the order. Onion rings were overly greasy.
It just wasn't a good experience. Would not go back.

Food and price ok. Music a bit loud, but if that doesnt bother you, good place to meet friends for a bite.

The food was really good and the menu has plenty to choose from. It looked as though some of the tables and chairs have taken a pretty good beating and that somewhat detracted from the ambiance.

Hair in water glass. Mouse ran across dining room floor while eating. Diners scrambling to take pictures of it. I won't go back.

More frat party than restaurant. Burger was dry - a disappointment.

My only concern was the bill was incorrect with an additional charge of $40. It was quickly corrected but I didn't appreciate being overcharged.

I had been here for lunch on another occasion and it was very good. I needed something for dinner near Grand Central so this fit the bill; however, it was a disaster based solely on the noise level! Service and food were good but the music was so loud and with a full bar and nearly full restaurant area it was impossible to hear my dinner companion sitting across the table from me. The bar crowd had to shout to be heard above the music and the shouting just escalated throughout the entire facility.
My ears were ringing --even the server had trouble hearing our orders.
Great server, lousy atomosphere for dinner only due to noise level.
Good place for lunch.
Would never recommend or return for dinner!

Portions very small for the price.
Service slow with few in the place.
Lunch value at $25.00 per head for just a small single course.

Great Food Drink prices are way too high. Too loud for me. Crowd a tad bit too young for me also.

Food was good - upscale pub type menu. Service was great. Server very attentive. Very loud and the bar was the focus.
