We have been to A16 in SF and Oakland on many occasions but it has lost its way. For an Open Table VIP we got the worst table in the house by the rest rooms and server’s station. Our server was superb but the food was poor. Fungi pizza had topping lumped in the middle leaving dry unadorned crust around the outside. Gnocchi were dry and tasteless with a metallic tasting pesto. Squid ink pasta was fine but came with 2 clams and 2 mussels. Hardly worth the money. Spaghetti pasta was, well, just spaghetti. Considering the cost the meal was a huge disappointment. We will not return.

I remember this restaurant being very good, but this was a HUGE disappointment. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. The appetizers were very small and presentation was poor. Four (very) tiny slices of crostini with a blob of cheese plopped on a plate. One of the entrees didn't arrive with the other three. We (eventually) asked when it appeared it wasn't coming, but the waitperson said 'it takes some time' and walked away. The entree wasn't delivered until the others were nearly done eating. Clearly the order wasn't put in with the rest, or there was a mix up in the kitchen, but there were no apologies or explanation. The pizza was soggy in the middle and inedible. Based on the description, we actually thought this was a pasta dish. The menu didn't clearly indicate that it was a pizza, and I'm still confused about a pizza with only red sauce; no cheese or other ingredients. Our mistake I guess, but the waitperson was just a notch above rude and very unfriendly. She certainly didn't offer to exchange for something else. To be fair, the 3-4 cookies that came with the meal as dessert and the wine were good. We expected so much more from A16; especially those of us who have dined there in years past. We eat out often and rarely are this dissatisfied. I've never written a poor review, but feel compelled. Our experience rates a solid D...

We have enjoyed many evenings at A16, but last Sunday’s experience may be our last. In a half empty restaurant we (three women) waited 30 minutes before anyone approached our table after we were seated. We waited another 30minutes before our drinks came, we suspect the waiter failed to place the order. He thanked us for our “patience”which by then had evaporated. Another very long wait before the first course (funghi pizza) which was good. Much later we received our tiny portion of squid ink pasta with mussels and clams. Given the market price of mussels, the seafood portion was very stingy. Overall an exasperating experience at a restaurant we had previously loved.

Food was spot on as usual. However, service could have been better. Had to ask for the wait staff to check on outlet drinks, food came out first. Keep finding myself with an empty glass of water. Waiter never checked in during dessert. I wanted to order a coffee but never got the opportunity to.
