The 9,800-square-foot space includes 120 seats in the main dining area, a spacious lower bar and lounge level, 30-35 seats in the private dining area, semi private dining for parties up to 14 people and a community dining table.
Perhaps the most unique element of the 25 Lusk transformations is the open space from the main dining level to the lounge below. This design unifies the two-level space while still allowing each level to exist as a distinct venue. 25 Lusk's one-of-a-kind basement level bar and lounge offers a stylish and contemporary setting with an expansive selection of classic and modern cocktails.

We used our gift certificate from a year ago, and had a memorable meal at 25 Luka. It was quiet the day after Christmas, so we could take our time, chat with several members of their excellent staff, and enjoy a sampling of the unusual, delicious menu. All in all a great evening.
Had a wonderful time celebrating my 30th birthday with friends at this venue! The service was exceptional, the food was amazing and the trendy ambiance was extraordinary! I was very pleased that the restaurant was so accommodating of my party's needs which made the celebration even more wonderful!
Terrible service. Recommended food that had dairy, even though I explicitly mentioned at the beginning I had a dairy allergy. They forgot the tea twice, and brought my coat check items leaving an item behind.
Delicious food. Fantastic service. Second time coming here. Will be back for sure.
25 Lusk is a neighborhood gem. Food, service and ambiance combine to create an excellent experience. We have dined at 25 Lusk a dozen times, and each visit has been delightful.
I have always liked that 25 Lusk has a casual lounge for after work drinks and snacks as well as a more formal dining room. They have added a rooftop lounge which makes this space even more attractive. The menu has changed since last I went and still every bit of creative and delicious. As a native Jamaican i was excited to try the jerk chicken. Although not prepared in a traditional way this dish made my tastebuds sing. I enjoyed it so much i am stilling thinking about this dish days after.
I am also grateful that making the difficult choice of dessert is made simpler with a choice of mini dessert trios.
25 Lusk still remains 1 of my favorite places to dine.
Superb service, excellent food!! Will definitely return. Strongly recommend this place!
Loved the ambiance but didn’t absolutely love my entree. There were 5 of us and I was the only one dissatisfied with food
Server and manager went out of their way to make our evening memorable. My family had a great time. Thank you!
A great fixed price menu - the meal was fantastic..
Have been here four or five times over the past few years and the food had always been pretty good. Went back for dinner last Friday and was surprised at how empty the dinning room was. They now only serve a prix fixe menu and although there was a lot of food the taste was terrible. Every dish had an overly sour taste it was difficult to eat. The hi-light of the meal was the tater-tot, it went down hill from there. We won’t be coming back here.
Great ambience, and as always great food. I'm a quantity over quality type of person, but when you can have both, why not? 25 Lusk delivers on top notch new american styled cuisine included with some of the best sized portions I've ever come across at any fine dining restaurant I've been to. Servers were so sweet, and the bar was awesome. The modern, upbeat feel coupled with the antiquated modern decor makes this place a hot spot for all walks of life. Come here - it's worth it.
We loved the ambiance but the food was below average. Interestingly the Mac and Cheese was the best part of the meal. Steak was below average and the appetizer were ok. We mentioned our feedback to the server but he did not care much about it. The cocktails were great.
Not sure if we will ever come back or recommend it to anyone.
Best for dessert. The blondie was amazing.
The fish is the best character in the Menu. Schnitzel.
Avoid the flatbread.
Price 200 + for a couple
Very bummed - took some friends for dinner. The manager was so kind to ask if we minded sitting in an empty dining room. (Really appreciate the consideration of that) we didn’t mind at all but prob should have known that would constitute for barely any service. The food was ok, flat bread was terrible with fruit so old/slimy it wasn’t edible. Soup sub-par. Steak good. Very sad because we heard good things about it.
The four of us liked each of the main courses and the deserts were outstanding. Especially appreciated the fact that the restaurant is quiet. Service was perfect. Ambiance is very nice.
This is a unique restaurant that offers an unusual and creative take on food. Quite enjoyable
Amazing. Full stop.
This was a really fun place to eat dinner. We had a great view of the kitchen, which always adds a special touch to any dinner. The food was excellent and the service was top notch!
This Restraunt exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable the food was unique and wonderful compliments to the chef. Not over priced fresh. The waiter explained everything to a tee and got us out in time to catch our show at the theatre. Clean and the ambiance was perfect
Service was fantastic and food was wonderful. We were a bit surprised by just having the prix fix menu being really the only option.
Excellent food, excellent service - really a special treat!
One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Food is consistently excellent, as is the service. Definitely a must-try for those that have not experienced 25 Lusk. Great quiet, romantic atmosphere upstairs, with a hopping bar area downstairs. Highly recommend.
As San Francisco native I volunteered to pick the restaurant for an evening before a concert at AT&T park. Scheduled plenty of time so the four of us could enjoy a few cocktails, eat and walk over leisurely. The restaurant has three levels and seemed to be very busy. After being seated it took 15 minutes for the waitress to take our drink orders. We mentioned upfront we had a concert and she assured us we would be out on time. We waited another 20 minutes for drinks to arrive and from then on the service continued to decline. The waitress was not attentive and only checked in after being flagged down. The dinner was a pre fix meal and we were there for an hour by the time the first course arrived. 2 out of the 4 Entree’s were cold and due to the time limitations we were not able to have the last course. I thought for sure the GM or waitress would be apologetic but they didn’t care.
If you do decide to try this place out I would not pick the pre fix restaurant and head straight to the rooftop for drinks and small bites.
For me this one was “one and done”. Disappointing for a $400 tab.
The prix fixe menu was extraordinary - each dish was tasty and overall a great value!
Friend visiting from SD. Beautiful restaurant, great good. It was a little quiet but overall a great experience.
Elegant, but not overstated, modern with the rustic twist. Food was unimaginably good. I usually don't eat chicken in restaurants, but this chicken dish was the most flavorful and moist I have ever tasted, served on a bed of warm greens with Chorizo. WOW! And the mint ice cream...yeah, delish, so fresh and clean and not overly sweet. Oh, and don't forget about the raspberry chocolate mousse, seriously a flavor explosion for your mouth.
Near the ballpark/SOMA. Check.it.out. Giants lost the night we were there, but the restaurant is a clear winner.
We wanted to have a casual dinner, so decided to try this place based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! Their 3-course fixed price menu @$60 was very good in terms of quality and quantity, and was good value for the money. Will be back again.
25 Lusk has gone down hill in a big way. They were sold out of three items and what we did end up ordering - the sturgeon schnitzel and the flat iron steak - was mediocre at best. The dessert unfortunately did not redeem the deficiencies of the meal. The ginger panna cotta was hard and excessively sweet, the ice cream was partially melted the chocolate raspberry cake was passable. A must avoid.
Perfect. Absolutely divine food and service. Thank you thank you thank you for a perfect evening
3 out of 5
Food and cocktails were delicious!!! Definitely going to return. They have Social 25 downstairs and a patio at the top I need to try out!
Stylish modern decor with touch of history, pleasant ambiance, creative menu, exceptional wine selection, impeccable service and convenient location (5min from CalTrain station). Great outing for the Bay Area folks who want to chill out in SF on hot summer nights!
Went here a few years ago and was very impressed with the food and didn’t mind paying the higher price for it. This time around the was good but not as outstanding and creative as I remembered it to be. Service was super, and the ambiance is still great.
I still recommend this place for a business dinner, date, special occasion, etc. but I think there is better food around SF for a similar price.
BTW - the bar is great! Awesome place for a cocktail!
Excellent experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend 25 Lusk for a wonderful meal and ambiance. Pre-fix menu was wonderful, we enjoyed each course.
Second time dining here. First time was 5 Star with both service and food. However this time the service was definitely a miss. It was disappointing. Had to flag down the waitress for the entire meal and she was just not attentive at all which is not what you expect from a restaurant of this caliber. (I’ve had better service at Buffalo WIld Wings). The other waiter in the restaurant and manager tried to pick up her slack but it still put a damper on our dinner. Our go to restaurants are Boulevard and Spruce in SF (btw both are beyond amazing) but we tried to switch it up this night and we’re left very underwhelmed because of the service (lack thereof). The food however was amazing so I won’t hold this one night against them...just yet.
Excellent service and food!
Overall a good dinner. The ambiance leans to the darker side with a quiet noise level. The staff is attentive to your needs as well. The appetizer (green garlic ravioli) and the desserts were absolutely delicious. And I was fond of the foie gras add-on. So if this is available, get it.
The pork chop was a miss for me, so I would recommend trying something else (it was not very flavorful and kind of hard). We got the price fixed menu.
Last time I went it was pretty hip. This time the restaurant was relatively empty. Service was really mediocre and kept missing stuff, which for a $60 Prix Fixe menu is crazy. And then the swordfish dish that my friend wanted was not on the menu. Still kind of a cool place and it was not noisy, but not worth it. Felt like they are clocking it in.
