Was SO nice to be back out enjoying a restaurant and A16 was perfect! The prosciutto and burrata starter plate with the veggie sides, pizzas, salads, and wine were all delicious. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you A16!

Night out before shutdown, was an incredible energy in the air. Ambiance was so pretty, food was delicious. Heaters were on, bit of a chill, but overall so happy to have the luxury of eating out during a worldwide pandemic. Everyone around was wearing mask and being respectful to those eating.

I hadn't been to A16 for a long time and found the outdoor experience they've created to be delightful. The food is always creative and extremely tasty. Good wine selection and a knowledgeable wait staff. Loved it!

The food was incredible and our server was so lovely!! She brought us champagne at the end of the night since we were celebrating a birthday. They’re doing a great job with COVID - the outdoor set up is really nice and they’re taking all necessary precautions. Can’t wait to go back

The restaurant did a great job of outdoor accommodating, though we had the slimmest of the outdoor tables--half the width of the rest. We hope our couple friends aren't positive for the virus! The staff was great, especially our wine steward who took care to bring us a lovely alternative to what we ordered. Generally all the salads ordered were excellent--delicious.
But the pastas and pizzas weren't up to those Ive had at A16 in the past. The pizza was limp and structureless and the 2 walnut pesto pastas were bland.
I would go back because I have really good memories of past meals; this one unfortunately fell flat.

Come for the pizza (we had the mushroom this time, so light and flavorful!) but stay for the meatballs. OH! The meatballs are just heavenly. Everything here is divine but those are my faves. Ask Shelley to pick wines for you, we tried a subtly fruity pinot after a bright and celebratory delight of a bubbly. The perfect Sunday afternoon early family supper. YUM.

Great service and inventive menu. There really should be a few more pastas to choose from that are less obscure. Very unusual ingredients in the pastas that sometimes fall flat. Pizzas are great and salads are delicious.

On election night, we were indoors in the back corner which was nice and quiet. But the service was poor with 3 different people involved over the course of the meal. Our main courses came out different times like one of them wasn't put in to the kitchen with the other two or something. Out of 6 total appetizers/mains/pizza/side dishes, only the burata appetizer and pizza were good.

I booked a reservation for 2 people at an outside table for dinner. The tables in the front were stacked up next to the door where people were coming in and out and patrons were lining up next to the table to speak to the hostess. Totally unsafe and not distanced. Since I am pregnant we asked to be relocated but there were no other options. The hostess was rude and her only suggesting was waiting 45 minutes to see if a party who had reserved a more secluded 4 top would show up. The table was empty. We ended up dining across the street which turned out to be a good experience. A16 has always been a favorite restaurant of mine but I am disappointed in their set up around Covid restrictions and did not feel safe. I didn’t appreciate the hostesses attitude about it either. They should not be offering the tables directly next to the door which have people constantly milling over them and people going in and out.

So enjoyed dinning on the quiet back patio. Service was great and food delicious. Wine was fabulous and always something you can't easily find elsewhere --Thank you Shelley!
We appreciated the social distancing in the back patio and the mask wearing.

The host at A16 was THE rudest person ever and so not helpful. I had a reservation and had thought it was made for outside (given COVID). SF had recently opened up indoor seating and the host gave me a TON of attitude that I should have specified when making the reservation. I completely understand if she could not seat us outdoors, but her rudeness was completely uncalled for and basically told us to leave. I would NEVER come back here even though the food is delicious.

The location was great and the restaurant was cute. However, the food was not that tasty, unfortunately. We got the cheese/meat board and everything on there tasted “off;” especially the tuna on the side. We also had the Margherita Pizza which, was just good, but that is really hard to mess up. As for the beer selection, they only had artisanal beers, which is great if you’re into those.

Our wait staff person was very nice but wasn't as attentive as she could have been especially considering she was not the one to bring our food to us. At times we had to wait a bit too long for her.

I was thrilled to be out as it was the first time I went for dinner since the pandemic started. The salads were excellent but $15 for arugula and tomatoes seems a bit much, even if they was plenty of salad. The pasta dishes were also large and the pizza might serve 1.5 people.

They very nicely waved the corkage fee for us.

I would go back if it weren't for the prices.

It had been a year since my last visit to San Francisco and I was anxious to return to one of my favorite SF dining spots, A-16. Upon sitting down for our 8pm dinner reservation, the manager was hovering over our table demanding we order as the kitchen would be closing soon. After ordering, we were told that two of the four entrees we selected were unavailable and to quickly find something else. After eating, the staff was quick to grab our plates - sending us a signal that they wanted to go home. I realize that SF / restaurants have been under a lot of pressure with COVID, however the service and attitude my business colleagues experienced at A-16 were unacceptable and a disappointment. Sad to write this review.
