Our waitress did not check on us often. Asked if I wanted another beer and never received it. Brought check without asking if we wanted anything else, coffee or dessert. Took a long time after she gave us check to swing by again as I needed to let her know it was incorrect. Food was good however, very disappointed in the service.

Waiter was not attentive. Our party works in the service industry/ hospitality so we are attune to service standards. He avoided eye contact and interaction. He barely smiled.
Service was slow - salads shouldn’t take that long.

I wish we had known that it was a college football bar prior to making the reservation. It was super noisy and we were unable to watch the Giants game (which seems odd for a bar in SF). But the beer was good and our food was even better, so would definitely try it again, maybe after football season is over.

My husband and I popped in for a light late dinner. It had a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The beer service was quick and efficient but I can’t say the same for the food service. We ordered an appetizer and light dinners which took an unusually long time to arrive at our table. We were ready to close out our bill without the food because it took so long. The food was tasty but it wasn’t worth the wait.

I was looking for a sports bar that didn’t have shouting competing tv’s booming on the first Saturday of college football this year. Found it! Bartlett Hall is just off Union Square. They brew their own beer (I had several taster sizes of the blonde - delicious!) and started with House-pickled veggies. The fries came with three dips (Asiago, chipotle & ketchup). The fish tacos were ok, but everything else we tried was truly excellent. The service was attentive.
Bartlett Hall was busy, not insanely crowded. They handled a couple of large parties when I was there and the noise level stayed at an energetic buzz.

The food was good. To be honest I really could not comment that much because when I went there I was still a little full, so I only had nibbles of everything. But the buffalo cauliflower is amazing!!! The staff were incredible! They were very friendly and very attentive. The whole vibe is good. It was cozy, relaxed and very chill. A nice place to catch up with friends.

I made a late reservation via open table. We arrived 15 mins early and was asked to sit in the lounge. The hostess forgot about us and I had to ask if we had a table after half an hour. She was apologetic. We finally got seated but the service was awful. Very rushed server, never checked if our meals were ok. My daughter’s lemonade was very sour and we left the drink at the end of the table, but the server never came by. We were never checked on or asked if we needed another drink. After our meal, we were asked if we wanted dessert which we declined and the bill was given to us. My daughter hadn’t even finished eating. It all felt rushed. My food was nice though, but the service was lacking :(

Sandwich as described on the menu “grilled chicken breast .....” was made with chicken thigh meat. Not what I ordered and not what I wanted to eat! The waitress was very busy and never stopped back to make sure our food was ok. We had to get her attention to get her to come to our table and explain the problem. After discussing this with her manager and cook staff they admitted that the menu was printed wrong. Food was sent back and I was not charged. I wonder what else is wrong or misrepresented on the menu!

Great place, food was very good as a meat eater I really enjoyed the impossible burger (vegetarian) vary tasty. Service was good and we enjoyed everything, not your typical pub food as it seemed a little more home made. The only down side is it does border the Tenderloin area of the city so be careful not to park pr stray past the Hilton 2 blocks down. I will return on my next trip to San Francisco.

Cute place, service was okay, friendly but not very attentive. Restaurant had a cold draft coming from somewhere possibly the kitchen. The burger and the steak were average, sweet potato fries were a disappointment (they were soft, not fried enough I guess), the regular fries were good. Home brew beer was good.

Food was decent. Service was just fair. We ate there twice. First night was very busy so assumed it was the reason for lack of service. Second time eating there was a different waiter and the service was no better. It wasn’t even that busy.

For a casual dinner option, this was a good place to grab a low key dinner. Food was good. Service was great. It was a little loud but it is a bar/pub, after all. We had our three kids, ages 10, 12 and 14, with us and thought it was family friendly for older kids.

Easy to book online, walkable from several of the Union Square hotels and shops. Nice to get off the busy street and rest while having a meal. Great draft beer and options for vegans and meat eaters. Well priced for the food. High tops, lower tables and couches so depending on your preference. I would go back.

Great craft beers created by this establishment. We all ordered different food for dinner and everyone at the table was very happy with their choices whether it was the burger, the burrata & strawberry salad or the chicken po-boy. Great French fries and attention to the details in the ingredients used in their food. Friendly service and laid back vibe. This is our third time at this brewpub and we were not disappointed.

Went before the seeing theater production. We were seated right away. Bar and food service was extremely good. Our server knew we were on a timeframe and took terrific care of us. Menu had something for everyone in our group of 5. All meals were brought out at same time and were all fresh and hot. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Beer and wine list had something for everyone. We will be back again. Overall very positive experience.
