B44 Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant disappointed me. Came with a couple friends. Way to loud inside. Although we were sitting in a back corner we had to shout throughout the entire meal to hear it other. In addition food service was so slow. The charcuterie plate took almost one hour to arrive. When we questioned the server as to why we had not received it his answer was that the kitchen was busy with the larger parties in the place. Unacceptable! We were done with our meal by the time that plate arrived. Couldn't wait to leave.
B44 was AMAZING! I'd read the glowing reviews and didn't expect the place to live up to them, but it did and more. Everyone there was extremely warm and welcoming and the service was great. The food was FANTASTIC!! My boys and I went to Spain for Spring Break earlier this year and sought out the highest rated restaurants eating lots and lots of amazing Spanish food. B44 was as good as any place we ate in Spain and that is a very high bar. I definitely recommend B44 to everyone.
We enjoyed the dinner: beet salad, garlic shrimp, lamb skewers, coldcuts and b44 payella all were excellent. About $160 for 2 adults and a kid, incl drinks and deserts - seem quite reasonable.
We came a night before thanksgiving and the place had very few diners, not that lively. Otherwise we loved the setting, and the location.
Our waiter always seemed to be in a rush. He didn't really ask how it was going or ask if it was a special occasion - which it was my birthday. I lived in Barcelona and have had authentic Catalan food. For being in the US it was pretty good, especially the Octopus and patatas bravas. The canelones were not very good, paella was alright, a bit salty for me.
Way overpriced, as is typical for tapas which often means less food more price. Even my girl left hungry and we dropped $150 on a simple meal for two. Too bad because the food is very tasty, the atmosphere is cool, and the wait staff are excellent. Just too hard to justify that kind of money when I'm not getting a big fat slab of prime beef, in contrast.
I've been dining at B44 for several occasions. The food is good and the atmosphere is very good so that I take my friends visiting San Francisco. At this particular visit, the service was bad – if you say it existed. We did not get anything other than water and menu more than 30 hour, nobody came to take orders. The restaurant was not that busy. Once food started arrive, because they were really good, everyone became happy. I was very much embarrassed for recommending this place to friends except for the quality of food.
The ambiance was great and the menu was extensive - but I was disappointed by the quality/value. For example we ordered the Catalan salad which was listed as having chorizo, and only got one slice of chorizo in it....Just kind of sloppy. But the food was decent and it was a fun place for a weeknight meal!
Most of the food was excellent (garlic shrimp and crab stuffed peppers were favorites. The vegetarian paella is way better than meatless paellas we've had in the past at other places). The octopus was a miss. The location is cute. What really brought the experience down was the service. The server would just disappear for 20 or 30 minutes- nowhere to be found. The busboy had to get our drink orders, requests for bread, the bill- poor guy was overworked since he seemed to be the front of house staff doing anything. I know these reviews can sound like people are exaggerating or being overly picky, but it was startlingly bad service for the price point- hopefully it was just a bad night for them (though they were nowhere near capacity) or else I don't see them lasting long in competitive SF. We still had a great night despite our server's apparent alien abduction mid-shift. ;) More sangria please!
We would have been more pleased if the waitress hadn't spilled a glass of cava on my husband... she did refill the glass but there was not any other attempt at "compensation" (ideas: bring us another bottle... free dessert...). As we were with friends, we did not make a scene. The food was tasty but low on meat items. The paella, altho yummy, had very little meat (chicken and pancetta) which was disappointing. The churros are yummy but you only get a tiny, tiny bowl of chocolate with them -- Barcelona style usually fills a coffee cup. Good flavors, small portions.
B44 is an amazing restaurant with even more amazing food. They did a great job accommodating my group of 14 for my birthday. They were very patient, as well as helpful with food items. Definitely recommend going for the experience and the food.
