Every single thing on the menu was absolutely phenomenal, and the seasonal desserts were incredible especially the cookie jar with a ton of delectable cookie duos. Luckily, we went with someone who has been before and we ordered a lot of food that I normally wouldn't think of (chicken confit on toast?) and we were so lucky we did! I honestly would love to go back just about ANY time. Perfect for business meetings, too, with comfy quiet booths and plenty of reservation options.
We decided to grab brunch at Bluestem after our planned visit to the Candytopia exhibit. We were not disappointed! The location is great, the restaurant is gorgeous and the staff were all so kind and welcoming.
The menu had a great selection of brunch items, stater options included everything from savory to sweet, I highly recommend the cinnamon roll, it was delicious!! I should've ordered one to take home!
For our main meal we ordered the short rib crepinette, it was fabulous! The short rib was tender and so flavorful, it was placed on top of sticky/crunchy sushi rice and topped with a fried egg and fresh chimichurri sauce... DELICIOUS!!
Ambiance, service, food, location, were all wonderful, we will definitely be back!
Very great and courteous staff. I believe the GM went up to check up on us a few times. Food and drinks were good. The festive decor was lovely. Overall fantastic
Interesting food combinations, definitely very good quality. Big portion size, a little understated by the wait staff, so I ordered too much at the end. But overall still good.
The waitress did not listen to our request to wait to place the main dish. The lunch was rushed.
Very enjoyable meal with a colleague from man years ago. Would go there again the next time am in SF. Service was good as well as the food.
I would like management to contact me
We had to change our brunch party headcount upon arrival, but they were so gracious and also gave us a few extra cocktails (mulled wine and one for the birthday girl!). They also waived the extra fee that comes with serving cake from another bakery - we had so much fun we stayed longer (and they were nice about that too!!). Great food (esp Deviled Eggs, Duck Confit Salad, Avocado Toast) and great ambience all around!!
Simple interesting dishes. Busy part of town and at christmas time had us sitting next to couple with two small children. I guess it's to be expected since it was a 5pm dinner reservation and I noticed the restaurant has mostly 4 top tables. All in all turned out fine. I think that liter of wine had a lot to do with it.
As always—a favorite go to place!
Service - great
Atmosphere - pretty cool
Food - not so great. I ordered the mussels tasted absolutely horrible.
Have enjoyed this restaurant in the past - the food is good and so is the atmosphere. Two reasons I gave for my 3 stars - (1) each time we go the service gets worse which is really disappointing as the restaurant is fairly pricey, and (2) the hostess was more focused on her personal device than actually caring about customers.
We would recommend if - you are less interested in good service and a hostess that acts like she works there. Otherwise, find another restaurant.
For the price the hamburger was small, but tasty. It’s worth about $10.95. The salad, in lieu of fries, had an unappealing house dressing for me. It was adequate in amount, but not generous. The soup mushroom bacon was excellent. I love this restaurant. I’ve been twice, and I will be back, but the value for money is, in comparison to what is around within walking distance, poor. Service and ambience were well above average.
It was my husband birthday celebration.
We really enjoyed cozy and friendly atmosphere of the restaurant.
Service was good, friendly, quick and pleasant.
Food was good as well.
I loved their fresh baked focaccia bred with mozzarella cheese! My soup and salad were equally good. My husband enjoyed his gloom delicious wine. He liked his meal as well.
After all it was nice and memorable experience!
Thanksgiving weekend get together with family
We had a great family dinner after Thanksgiving. Excellent service and all our dishes were wonderful.
Thanksgiving - tough night, food was really good, which is most important, but service and ambiance at the restaurant was a bit lacking, slow and loud. Overall, we had a good dinner, would definitely recommend it under different circumstances.
Flavorful meal, excellent presentation, superb waiter.
Our waiter was very nice, but the food came out in the wrong order. Server brought the sides for the main course, and then the waiter returned asking if we'd had our soup and salad yet (we hadn't). When the main course came (stuffed delicata squash) the squash was extremely undercooked and inedible. The food that was cooked properly was good, but the inedible squash was pretty egregious. When the waiter brought our check, it was the wrong check. He was very nice about it, but overall, I wouldn't go back there again.
We went to Bluestem for Thanksgiving and while the service was good, the food was absolutely terrible. The only saving grace was the butternut squash soup. But for the $75 a person price tag, some soup is really not enough. Very disappointed, we will not be coming back.
Went for thanksgiving dinner as a large group. Food was very good. Service was extremely poor. Disappointing given the price that we were paying. The waiter was rude on a number of occasions.
Thanksgiving dinner. Fairly disappointing. Waited 25 minutes past reservation time. Awkward waiting space, no drinks offered to kill time. Could tell wait staff was trying but overwhelmed. Very friendly when at table but very few visits. Soup had great flavor but was served like warm at best. Ordered the prime rib which no temperature was asked and it was served blue, along with over cooked braised short rib. Butternut squash was the most interesting dish I’ve had in years. Still don’t know what to think of it. Served Hawaiian rolls that were hard like rocks. Hard to imagine we spent over $300 on that dinner for two with 1 drink and 1 bottle of wine.
I can think of no better way to spend my Thanksgiving Day!
Small, overpriced portions. Duck entree is $43, nothing but duck, not even a potato garnish.
$22 for half dozen oysters.
Butternut squash soup was tepid, and not even a full cup, $11.
Did not feel like the wait staff was very informed or engaging. Limited selection of French wines for a “brasserie”.
I had a quick bite and a drink. The mussels with frites was excellent. Service was top notch.
Have been coming here for 4 years or so. Consistently Great food! I’ll be back
The restaurant did not retrieve my reservation and I had to find another place to have lunch with my friends. Won’t never come back in the future.
Outstanding! If you order the burger, which is exceptional, and don’t include the avocado and egg what’s the point? Not sure why they’re not standard. Like why are there Jeeps offered that are not 4x4 or a mustang with a 4 cylinder.... really great location and service. Open Table reservation didn’t go through correctly but the host took care of us quickly in a crowded situation. Much appreciated service.
Food took forever. One person was given a chicken sandwich instead of chicory salad. Another person’s meal was forgotten completely. All burgers were rare, even the lamb burger for the pregnant party member who asked for well done. So rare that it looked like raw meat in the center. We will never be coming here again for a business lunch
Excellent, tasty food and good service. Easy to speak volume of room. Friendly wait staff. Will go again.
Every time I come here, I feel more and more like they think I'm a 'regular' to the restaurant... and every time I come here, the service just gets better and better. From the person seating us, to our servers, to the floor managers, everyone is so nice and personable.
We were lucky to have Savannah as our server. I hate to pick favorites.. but she is my new favorite. I can't enough nice things about her.
The floor supervisor was also so very fun and friendly... telling us about our food selections and especially the dessert choice.. she was great!
I've made this my short-list choice for business lunches and work lunches.
The meal started out well, but the steak I ordered (NY strip on the bone) was extremely poor even though it was over $50. It was not cooked well (I asked for medium rare, but it was well done on the outsides with a little pink on the middle), and was very dry and without flavor. The rest of the food was good but not great.
Service was very sporadic --- food was good. I really liked the pasta, salads good, and dessert tasty.
A solid place. Food was good, but service was slow.
My husband had the biscuits and gravy and I had the crowue
