Good food, pleasant surroundings, altogether a warm and comfortable evening at a reasonable price.
We were in SF to visit our daughters. We are always hunting for great places to eat. We ate at Blue Plate 2 years ago but had not been back until our most recent trip. There are so many places to eat in SF that we tend to spread ourselves around during our frequent visits. We need to move Blue Plate up to our "must repeat" short list. We had an outstanding dining experience this time. Great atmosphere, great staff and fabulous food. Everything we ordered was outstanding. Starters: Deviled eggs, grilled squid and pork belly.....yum! Mains: Fried chicken-2 orders, Meat loaf and Braised short ribs.....super good!
We will be back!
They have the best fried chicken. Also make sure you have the deserts.
I go to Blue Plate pretty frequently and the food is always great, as is the service. It's such a consistently good dining experience that I find it a great place to take friends or visitors to the city.
I love Blue Plate, it is a consistent gem. I live walking distance from the restaurant and can most nights get a table. The drunken goat macaroni and cheese is my favorite! My one tip is ask for the back rooms, quieter and I love either a view of the garden or the paintings in the middle room.
We are visiting from out of town and had the most relaxed and delicious meal at Blue Plate. The staff was so chill and also kind to our kids. The wine list was fantastic and paired great with the delectable meal. The restaurant was really cozy and casual. An absolutely great find that we would recommend hands down.
The food was spectacular, as always. The ambiance is perfect for a casual first date or a friends get together. The food typically has a great balance/combination of texture and flavor. I haven’t disliked anything on the menu. Although, we were a bit rushed the last time we were there because there were other people waiting for our table. The restaurant comped our drinks while we relocated to the outdoor terrace. It was not necessary but was much appreciated. Blue Plate is always worth a revisit!
We come here frequently with folks from out of town, and for birthdays etc, and Blue Plate never fails to impress. They are so consistent, have great wine choices, and the staff is super personable and helpful. Their menu changes with the seasons, but the fried chicken and key lime pie are amazing and available all year.
Cold SF nite. Nice that they let us in a minute before 5.30! Fried Chicken should state dark meat only on menu! Two pieces, one of them should have been white meat (esp for those who are not as keen on dark meat like me!) Paul Martin has a wonderful fried chicken dinner white & dark, mashed potatoes, salad & ice cream $27! The two "boys" had meatloaf. One was ok with his the other said too loose not tight (gravy too runny.) The winner was asparagus with pine nuts for the table. Two glasses of Ottimino zin and Walch schiava were fine. Key lime pie was good esp the dollop of fresh whipping cream with lime zest! The bottom crust was a bit soggy, thankfully the crust around the rim was still crisp (that's the best part!)
The food was good, they didn't bring our Mac n cheese on time and then took it to the wrong table. By the time it got to us we were full and wanted to take it, they insisted on boxing our items and then did not include our mac n cheese in our bag, we had a full box of Mac n cheese.
Blue Plate specializes in comfort food and they pull it off exquisitely. You can spend a night out at Blue Plate and go home satisfied.
This place is GREAT! It's far from where I live, but I went there once and loved it so much I went back. Service is great and friendly and the menu is fabulous. They did not have Brussel sprouts on the menu this time, which my boyfriend loved. I asked the waitress and she checked with the kitchen and they had some left over from the night before, so they made him his Brussel sprouts. This place is a hidden gem.
This is a go-to dinner spot for visitors and special occasions. Menu is approachable but the most delicious way of preparing it. Gluten-free options including fried chicken. We went for a family thank-you dinner with 4 people. We split 3 small plates to start (try the seasonal butter lettuce salad!!) and each had a large plate for dinner. So so so delicious.
Ambiance is lively, but ok for conversations. Feels like a real hidden gem for locals only.
Make a reso though, unless you'd like bar seating.
We chose our first meal at Blue Plate on Valentine's Day. Probably not the best day to try a new restaurant. Although we waited one full hour, with reservations, for our table the mood was very positive and we had enjoyable conversations with other waiting patrons and the very friendly, (and apologetic) management and staff while we waited. Hey, it was Valentine's Day, and they handled it very well.
Once we were seated, the food came quickly and, although the kitchen was positively slammed with an overflowing house, the dishes were perfectly executed and absolutely spot on.
We started with the asparagus soup, light and tasty, not too heavily creamed. We shared the Dungeness crab salad on garlic toast which was just the right balance. I ordered the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans...iconic comfort food and one of the best renditions I've ever had. My wife ordered the short ribs on a bed of polenta which literally melted in one's mouth. Dessert was a decadent molten center chocolate cake for me and the famous Blue Plate key lime pie for my wife. Both were the perfect finish to a great meal.
If the kitchen can be this consistent during a hectic Valentine's Day with the line stretching out the front door for most of the night, then I expect on normal days they must totally rock.
The only drawbacks were the tiny tables. Seating is a bit crowded and the tables are more suited to a cafe than a full service restaurant. Noise level..well, it was a holiday and every table was occupied.
We had amazing service and the food was delicious. I had the fried chicken which was crunchy and full of flavor and my husband had the scallops which he loved. The key lime pie for dessert should not be overlooked. Definitely coming back to try more food.
rating would be a little higher but we unfortunately received a table at a large window in back of restaurant and froze due to cold windy night on valentines day. owner should be aware of this and invest in floor heat in that area for winter nights. focaccia bread tasty but salty.
Love this place. Never had anything but a first rate meal here. With a new influx of crab, we went for it, fried with a cornmeal crust. Wasn't sure how that would be, but it was delicious, the crab perfectly cooked and tasty bites of the crust to eat with it.
And, you get none of the pretentiousness often found in the city. Highly recommended.
Funky and casual atmosphere yet romantic! We visited from Boston and we were very impressed. Delicious and innovative food selections. Only downside is they are super small and it makes it hard to wait for a table. Make a reservation!!
The smoked-then-fried chicken is my new favorite food on the planet. It’s like bacon and fried chicken made a baby.
The pasta salad side has a lot of rich creaminess and a lot of olive, so it’s a bit heavy as a compliment to smoky fried chicken. An option for some acid and/or veg to cut the richness would be appreciated.
We have been dining at Blue Plate for as long as it has been open. It continues to be a favorite place for us. The odd thing is we have only ordered appetizers! We make a meal with 3-4 apps! You taste the talents of the kitchen. The wine list has improved and it was easy to order wines by the glass. Make a res and enjoy!
The host did not greet us when we arrived, she was pretty rude to start off with. We were here for restaurant week so it was great to get a tasting of their menu. They seat you extremely close to other tables, we sat next to an obnoxiously loud man unfortunately. Fried chicken was cooked perfectly I recommend that!
We came here for restaurant week. The options offered were very good. Portions were really large. One of us ordered the 3 course restaurant offering, one just ordered an entree. We shared the faro- egg appetizer, a really large portion and very tasty. We both had the short ribs, again large portions and really tasty. We could not finish them and we are not smaller eaters. We shared the chocolate dessert, very good. We were both very full, with leftovers for lunch. We will return.
Half my party was over 40 minutes late and the waiter COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER. He went out of his way, over and over again to put us at ease. He was terrific.
Best key lime pie I've ever had!! The place is a bit on the small size but it's very cozy and the food is delicious. Portions are generous as well.
We were promised a glass of champagne when making the reservation. Nobody ever offered it or mentioned it. We were there for Restaurant Week and their special menu was very poor, and food quality below mediocre and soooo not worth the price! I don’t understand why this place is rated so high; very disappointing.
Went for SF Restaurant Week and had a great meal. Will go back just for the Farrow and Slow Egg, so comforting! And the Key Lime Pie was better than what we’ve had in Key West, FL.
We had a great time at Blue Pate. Fun place, great food, but a little pricey.
First time at this restaurant. Even though it was a casual atmosphere the food was anything but that. Comfort food taken to the next level with great tastes and good sized portions. The food did take a little while to come out of the kitchen but we were in no hurry and had a relaxing dinner. Would highly recommend this place.
Blue Plate is a neighborhood go to for Bernal and Noe. Haven’t been disappointed yet.
Everything is always great here! Been coming here here ever since it opened and I have not had anything that I didn't like! Cory is a great Chef and Shannon is the best Host! We started out with the best deviled eggs ever, had a nice salad and I had the New York Strip and she had the Meatloaf which is a staple and is exceptional. For sure a New Years to remember!
Great service and the food was tasty! Would love to come back to try the different menu items!
Awesome food, top notch service. I love that the menu changes but the quality of the food never does. Keeps me coming back for more. Incredibly cozy clean decor. It almost feels like you're at a friend's house who really knows how to cook and entertain.
Great food, attentive and welcoming service. Will visit again!
This place is always great. Eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Staff is fabulous. Food is amazing.
The staff was incredibly friendly, food was spectacular + they had tons of delicious gluten free options! Absolutely love this gem in the Mission
I love Blue Plate and keep coming back!
Staff is always insanely friendly and personable, and the chef works constantly to play creatively with his dishes and ingredients. The staples are phenomenal, and the changing menu items are always entertaining and delicious.
Blue Plate should be a model for all restaurants. Our waiter was attentive and the food was delicious. Our party was the first in the restaurant. We were greeted warmly by the hostess. That is one way to get off to a great start. Plus, the restaurant was so quiet we conversed at a normal voice level. Of course the restaurant was packed when we left and the volume went up but the first hour was lovely. Blue Plate offered us a memorable dining experience.
Great service, fantastic food. Everything was perfect!
The Blue Plate has a great vibrant atmosphere. A small and cozy restaurant in the mission which is appealing to young people. The noise level is very high. The food was a big disappointment and It’s a pricy place. The butternut squash soup was loaded with cream and cheese and was inedible by my friend who also ordered the quail. Only one tiny quail on her plate. My other dining partner ordered the pasta which was also loaded with cream and he gave it a thumbs down. I ordered the calamari appetizer and found it delicious. I also ordered the cod and clams which was dry and over cooked. So, in my opinion, the restaurant did not live up to it’s reputation. But my last word is that people were enjoying themselves, it was packed with diners, and maybe we just ordered the wrong thing.
Amazing as always!! One of the best in SF!
