Contemporary American
25 Lusk is a sophisticated, approachable fine dining restaurant specializing in seasonal contemporary American cuisine. All of the original exposed brick and massive timbers are still in place, creating a warm and inviting ambiance while maintaining the building's classic, industrial aesthetic.
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. Come visit our new ROOFTOP25 expansion on the roof of 25 Lusk!

Over dressed salad, waiters consistently brought incorrect items, felt very much about upsell, overpriced

Classy decor and subdued lighting. Excellent service that was attentive without being overbearing. Tasty food well prepared. Definitely buzzing but not so loud that it was difficult to have a conversation at your table. Very enjoyable experience all around. Expensive but worth it if you're looking for something nice.

Service was not as expected compared to the last time I was here few years ago. Host was moody, our server was not friendly, didn’t even greet us, just walked over to pour us water, I had to greet him to open up conversations. The food was under seasoned, especially with their entrees. Menu has changed to very basic, nothing that stands out like their location and name.
Will not be returning.

I had a great experience yet again at 25 Lusk. I’ve come before with a big group from work and we spent a lot of money which is why I thought we had such good service, but after I went last night just my mom and I, I can tell even when it was just us two the service was excellent. My mom has to step out for a work call for about 20 minutes after the first course was served so I waited and my pasta got cold and the server asked if if he could bring me a new one once she was back. That is the type of service I think most restaurants aspire to have and that combined with his knowledge of the food we were enjoying really shaped our experience. Thank you

Great service and awesome cocktails and wine selection. We were surprised about how big the portion was (in a good way). Steak was cooked to perfection. We wished there’d be more sauce on the side for the steak though.

We tried this place for the first time during restaurant week.
We will return, soon and often. The ambiance was great and the layout very appealing. There are 3 levels; casual on the roof deck, classy lounge on the lower level and fine dining on the street level. Our service was stellar. Very close attention was paid to every detail. The wines were very good and the server was knowledgeable on the selections.
Our food was delicious and presented well. We had Artic Char and a steak. The price fixe menu is 3 course,2 savory and 1 sweet. They also offer an a la carte menu too. Easily one of our best meals in the 2 years we’ve lived in the city.

Second visit to 25 Lusk.....Quite possibly the best meal I’ve had in my life! The flavors were unbelievable. I savored every bite.
The second best meal in my life was probably my first visit to 25 Lusk. They have an excellent wine list too.
If you haven’t dined at 25 Lusk yet, you owe it to yourself to go there!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
