    Living in the Castro and walkers we never get in the car to go out to eat locally. But remembering a visit years ago we decided to drive to the Marina to revisit A16. We loved it all --and hope to return soon.

    Pizza is excellent, outstanding selection of wine. We got the lamb pappardelle and it was very sub par. Hard noodles, dry meat and no flavor. Luckily the pizza was Amazing. Fantastic flavor, pillow soft crust, and just the right amount of heat. The service was awful, our waiter did not visit our table one time after the entree was dropped off. Even after we sent the pasta back she did not come by. I was blown away by being completely ignored. Delicious pizza, quality wine, and horrible service

    We celebrated my husbands birthday at A-16. There were 3 of us dining. We received the bottle of wine 25 minutes after we placed our order. Since it had taken so long to receive we placed our entire order at once. The waiter did not provide any feedback or give us any direction. We were eating family style and under ordered. Between the salad and pasta we requested a single glass of wine. It did not come until after the pizza and pasta. We tried to cancel it but they brought it anyway. They need a broader price point for their wine menu. Go to Roma Antica for Italian it is much better.

    I sat in the parklet. Service was very slow and hard to get a waiter to come by. My napkin was dirty, so I asked for another and was given another dirty napkin. The parklet is sloped, and so was our table, so we couldnt put our wine down without it sliding off. Our server gave us a rec. on wine and it was not very good. Food: skip the insalata de mare. arugula salad was decent, but could use a punchier dressing. Peppardelle was weak/undercooked Pizza was the highlight by far - good pizza, great chewy dough. Really the only redeeming part of the meal. Hopefully the inside dining experience is better, but I would not come back here to sit in the parklet.

    Our server literally spent about 1 minute total for the entire time we were there, and I do realize that it was busy and they were understaffed. The food (papardelle with lamb) was tasteless and uninteresting. This restaurant has really gone downhill, sadly.

    Most expensive pizza of my life and was ok. Only sell beer and wine, which for me is ok but for my wife who doesn’t really like wine it was a downer.

    Sadly the food at A16 is not as good as it once was. Also our main courses arrived over a 10 minute window. The atmosphere is great, staff are friendly. I am fond of A16 and hoping it rediscovers its past form.

    Never written a bad review before……they were completely disorganized and could not execute any request in a timely manner. It took 15 minutes to be seated despite no line and prior reservations. It took 30 minutes before we could actually order our food after being seated. Then another 40 minutes until the food arrived (despite being told the food will come out immediately). Every request was made three times. The food tasted great otherwise it was a painfully long experience. Sadly the other tables nearby appeared to suffer the same fate.

    The pizzas are very soggy and I think it’s because they drizzle so much oil on top of their pizza. Their Arugula salad with stone fruit is very yummy. The restaurant has no ambiance …, loved the wine choices.

    Service was friendly but very slow for wine refill etc. Food was just ok but execution was terribly sloppy. Salad was lacking flavor and ingredients. Pasta presentation was not appetizing. Pizza toppings slid off dough. Presentation of all dishes was not good. Hard/stale crostini with burrata. Such a boring plain presentation and flavor profile with just cheese and bread on a plate. Pappardelle lamb pasta tasted bland and presentation was awful. The price point did not match quality.

    I was expected a way better standard for a restaurant in Michelin book. Service was terrible , and no choice you have to pay 20% service charge . Wine list not upgrade , many items missing ,millesisme not matching . My plate was broken on the lips , same for my neighbor. Food was absolutely no seasonning, we have to ask salt and pepper .

    Maybe it was an off night as I’ve had great meals there in the past, but sub par tonight for four people spending $250 for basically pizza and pasta. Service was slow and inattentive. Two of our items never arrived. Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Wine was half pours. Most frustrating was they automatically add a 20% service charge so it seems there was little incentive to do better.

    The food was FANTASTIC! The table agreed that the pork chop may be the best we have ever tasted. Don't miss the smoked burrata and panzanella to start. Also, the pizzas are sooooo delicious! Sally Kim's (wine director) wine suggestions paired prefectly with the food. We so appreciated the whole team guiding us on this delicious meal - thank you Landon, Eva, & Satya! Lastly, don't forget to have a glass of wine with Dario at the bar - you won't be sorry!

    We could not believe this is a Michelin rated restaurant. We asked Joe the server to make recommendations and he simply read the menus to us. When I said “what would you order” he said “I do not know what you like”. I make a point of visiting Michelin restaurants every city I go in that has them. Around the world, it is sad other than the food being higher than average quality the service was the pits not only because of the server but the food runner couldn’t find space on the table with the dirty plates and empty glasses to put the entrées on the table. The price was not that bad 150 for two people without alcohol so as you can tell we like to taste different things on the menu. Such a shame I really read the reviews and had such high hopes for this restaurant this is a photo of the table while the runner was trying to put our second course on the table. He had to put the entrées on the table next to us clean our table and then put them on our table.

    Nice place, good food/wine options, and everyone was friendly. The only drawback was the outdoor seating could be better (the tables are on a big slope and are a bit too close together, so was hard to talk over other conversations).
