I had a great experience at A16 the other night. I arrived for my reservation and the host was accommodating and friendly - we quickly got in from the cold and to our seat in the restaurant. The server was very nice and helped us navigate the menu and gave thoughtful recommendations. Additionally, she gather some info about the wine that I like and offered some nice Italian equivalents, as I was in the mood to try something new. The food was quality and tasty, too. I am proud to support restaurants that are taking care of their employees too - thank you for charging a service fee and responsibly ending wage inequality among the various positions in your restaurant. Kudos! I will be back.

I was not impressed. The food was mediocre, the ragu was overly sweet with no tangy bite, the chicken liver pasta was meh. Service was spotty and our table was in a breezeway and my wife wore her overcoat the WHOLE night. Definitely NOT a $360 dinner for 3.

Well, we ate outside out of an of an abundance of
caution but the service was a bit haphazard. We loved our server but she was overmatched by the homeless guy she could not control, the underpowered outdoor heaters, and the sometimes ill-timed wine/plate service. The food was fine, but the chill made the food temperature not optimal and it was all a bit crude in preparation and presentation. For the price we were charged, not worth it.

Kale salad quite good but took too long to have it served then main course came immediately after the salad.
Short ribs fatty and tough, almost no edible meat; should have been much better for $38.00.
Not going back.

The food was good, but the service was the worst. Our wine glass smelled like a dirty rag, so we requested a new glass but instead of giving us a new glass/wine, they poured the old smelly wine into a new glass. They included 20% service charge without mentioning it to us and presented a bill with a blank "tip" section. If I didn't read the details on the bill carefully, I'd have paid double tip. We'll never go there again.

Was recommended this place from some friends. Seating was quick and wine selection was great. They were fast to bring out the meatballs that happen to be the best thing about the experience. They brought out the wrong order for my girlfriend then we were told 5 mins on the correction. 5 mins go by and they say they are out of the dish. She orders pasta with red sauce and it takes another 20 mins. I had the pasta with red sauce as well, sauce was bland and runny. Pasta was under cooked. I quick, we canceled the second order because it took to long and we both left unsatisfied. Could have been an off night, however, with so many options in the area we unlikely will be returning

Absolute disappointment. We have not been dining out often, so when we do, we expect it to be fabulous. A16 has always been an excellent choice. Tonight, they had more people than they could manage. The mushroom pasta had NO flavor - our table and a neighboring table both sent it back. The substitute was mediocre pasta bolognese. The pizza was lukewarm and the $2 extra sauce was cold. The fourth person’s meal didn’t arrive until the other three were almost finished. The server was excellent and did what she could to compensate for the kitchen. Dining out in SF has become extravagantly expensive, so we expect really good food and service. A16 let us down. Fingers crossed they get their mojo back soon.

Adding 20% service charge is ridiculous especially when you are served by inexperienced servers . Prices are high for a hostess to be wearing a ski jacket and baseball cap. Food was. fine.
