Salty taste and outdated decor, inattentive service.
Feel terrible about leaving a negative review, but A16 has really gone downhill since our last visit. The formerly wonderful pizza was meh--good crust, but hardly any toppings considering the prices. Mains and pastas were somewhat greasy, and again very small portions. Service and greeting were warm and efficient (especially the bussers!), but the restaurant was quite empty, and we could see signs of worry among the staff. Despite being barely 1/3 full, the noise level was quite high. There's a lot of competition in the Marina, and A16 needs to step up its game and stop coasting on its reputation.
Another wonderful evening at this incredible gastronomic institution. Warm welcome, great drinks, food to delight.
WE really enjoyed the food. We had a pizza and a pasta and dessert. The server recommended a dessert that was delicious. The noise level, however, was very loud for us and we could not really have a conversation.
I have gone here a lot and it is always excellent. This time just average and so loud..
The food and atmosphere is warm and family friendly. The staff is attentive and on top of their game at this neighborhood restaurant gem. We were lucky to get a reservation for Mother’s Day!
This may literally be the loudest restaurant I have ever been to. Four of us sitting at a small four top could not have a conversation.
Absolutely fantastic and felt at home! Love it there!
Food was poorly prepared over salted and showed a lack of care
Wonderful location, ambiance, food and service. Noise level is deafening, however, so had to go elsewhere for dessert and conversation.
The staff is outstanding and offers some of the best service in the city. They're knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The entire vibe feels like a neighborhood spot, but is a destination restaurant in its own right. The food is always good--from the pasta to the pizza and the secondi with the cannellini bean contorno is always a winner. Finally, the wine is outstanding. Definitely ask the expert staff for help to narrow down your choices.
Great as always!
Please do something about the noise level. It was impossible to talk to my friend. Just putting some ceiling tiles or carpet might help.
The calamara (squid) pasta was very very fishy. Everything else was fine.
Noise horrible. Service dreadfully slow. Zuppa poor quality. Pasta inadequately
cooked. We will not return to A16.
Bar service was great. Table service so so as hard to get attention of server. Had to get up and go get her. Got order wrong. Noise level may be culprit. Hard to talk to or hear person across the table. Food was excellent.
We requested and received a table in the back room. It was less noisy than the rest of the restaurant, but still too noisy to suit us. Food and service very good. Just not appropriate for our demographic.
All great except for the excessive noise level, almost unbearable.
See reviews, once new & special, slow decline & stagnation? Only really bad stuff was WAY OVERLY SALTED near every cooked dish, pork chop given to customers with MASSIVE FAT around most of protein. Sooooo unhealthy & killer. I think owner & chef don't care? They grow as they want $$, but quality drops as this happens. Common. Look at Delfina, branches in suburbs near chain quality food & staff. Very bad & sad. Focus, improve, please!
A friend was visiting from Seattle and we chose to have a Saturday lunch at A16. We were not disappointed. The food and wine were amazing, service just perfect - left us to do some much needed catching up and didn't rush us. Definitely authentic, rustic Italian with a nicely thought out menu and wine list. I will come back... maybe sit near the front door by the bar as it seemed cozier there.
The best strawberry panna cotta ever!!!
This place has a hectic, crowded vibe and was extremely loud. Pretty much a deal-breaker for anyone hard of hearing or who just prefers not to yell at their date across the table. The restaurant has taken steps to reduce noise with foam padding under the table, but at least in the back section of the place is was impossibly loud.
Margherita pizza was very good. Pasta was very good. The fava-leaf pesto pizza looked and tasted burnt, and the crust was extremely chewy. For insane SF prices, this place just didn't impress.
A16 is a must stop location when in San Francisco. The menu provides something for everyone, and the wine selection is outstanding! The servers and service is professional. Using OpenTable to grab a reservation was a breeze! Highly recommend this place to all!
A great experience.
Our server, Sean Skinner is a consummate pro!
A16 is a class act!
Hi Shelley--love your place!
Very rude server. It was an imposition to bring bread and water during meal. Staff standing around talking while clusters were ignored. Not the A16 we remember and we won’t be returning.
Good. Great. Awesome
This restaurant has majorly gone downhill. When I moved here in 2014, this was shot restaurant, was on best SF restaurants lists, very hard to get a reservation. Not anymore. Food is not amazing and definitely not worth the cost, which it used to be. Horrible service.
Fabulous service and food as usual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good pizza and service, very loud
Food was not special
We went around 930 pm after the NBA game. Guess it’s a weekday and we came late the service team was not too patience . Tried to ask more about their Italian wine but either she’s not patience or she doesn’t have much knowledge on her wine list.
Pizza and pasta were quite good though. Entrees was so so and super salty without taking into my request for low sodium.
We used to eat often at A16 since we live in the neighborhood but hadn’t been there in several years. The food has deteriorated to the point of being inedible- huge salt crystals spoiled the burrata, roast chicken was totally dried out, pizza was burned, pasta ruined with cocoa nibs like little rocks. Very disappointing and we will not return.
Astronomically loud, not friendly to patrons over 40, food is mediocre and wine list is way over priced
Best pizza in the USA
Compared to years ago, the food we had recently was spectacularly uninspired and grossly overpriced for what we ate. Pastas were seemingly flavored only with salt at a cost of $27. Shame on me for paying the bill. So many other places in this city, so clearly I won’t return.
Quite expensive. The portion is small.
