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 which allows soaring steel fire orb flues to pass 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.

OpenTable Diner (Cleveland)
Dined on January 6, 2018

In spite of the otherwise high reviews, my wife and I both found the food to be uninspired and derivative. We are no strangers to fine dining and maintain familiarity with various food preparation styles. My wife had the roasted chicken and parts were clearly under done, with the overall meal being largely tasteless and underspiced. I had the BRAISED RABBIT MALTAGLIATI which was also pretty boring. The only high point was the thinly melted sheeps milk cheese on top. We also ordered the lobster Mac and cheese, which is a favorite that we regularly get from many other restaurants. It was a gigantic portion for a side, but again it was lacking in flavor. It is easy to find it done better elsewhere. Overall, we liked the exposed brick and high end look of this restaurant, but the food was just blah.

Santa got me this chef's cookbook on fish which made me decide to try his restaurant. I was very pleasantly surprised that such a good restaurant had escaped my attention, since I am always looking for good fish restaurants for my fussy, pescatorial husband. They also serve excellent non-fish dishes. Attentive staff. Every dish was tasty. A real find.

Had a great meal with great service in a great space. The whole fish (cod) was delicious and impressive, the pork belly was yummy and the octopus was perfect.

The restaurant has what one expects of a kitchen focused on sophisticated California cuisine. We all enjoyed our appetizers (tuna tartare, pork belly, mushroom soup). For the mains the roasted chicken was excellent. The pork chop was a bit dry (despite being highly recommended by the waiter). We had hoped to try the Flank Steak but they had sold out for the evening which was disappointing. Service was generally attentive, but on occasion slow - something I've observed previously with this restaurant.

Food was overall pretty good at a great price. But chef needs to find some balance isn’t the flavors. Everything was overly acidic.
Ambience and value is great. Also, the steak and octopus.

Really great experience all-around, every time I come here. There's also valet parking, which helps in SF.

It’s my first in SF. And my boyfriend and I love the ambiance there! The food is soooo good! I would definitely go back to try other food!

Picked 25 Lusk for a special anniversary. We were seated right away. Restaurant is upstairs with a spacious lounge and bar downstairs. The menu is well thought out, fish, beef, pork- all special. I had the flat iron steak, my wife had the pork chop. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly. There was a small delay in the kitchen, so the chef sent out a small sample of soup, as well as the waiter refilled the wine glasses for no charge; a very nice touch. The staff checked on us often, were discreet, and very friendly. With dessert the chef presented us with a "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate across our plates. Touch of class.

What a gem! The menu is eclectic and compelling, I wanted to order almost everything they had. I had the avocado hummus (delish) and the octopus. We ordered the bacon cornbread for the table and could have had another serving! The atmosphere was wonderful but there is also a downstairs with lots of cozy nooks and crannies and we hung out a bit. I would recommend this to anyone!
