It was an amazing place to have a dinner with great conversation. The service was amazing and they truly care. Great cocktails, wine list and vibe. Highly recommended!
I miss the old BlueStem. The new chef they hired recently is really screwing things up. Bring back the original tater tots and little gems salad and quit messing with fan favorites! I used to come here all the time for business meals but probably won’t be back until someone gets control of what’s going on in the kitchen. You know it’s bad when even the wait staff is telling you to avoid certain dishes he put on the menu. Please fix it!
Great! Nice complimentary B-day cinnamon roll!
This was an unexpected last minute great find! Food was outstanding, service was very good. The beet salad on toasted in duck fat oats was one of my most outstanding menu items in life. Such an unusual combo that was a taste sensation. Highly recommend this place.
We had a wonderful experience dining at Bluestem. The food, service and table were great and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious brunch/ lunch. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was not crowded which was really nice - the table had a great view of all of the weekend action happening on Market St.
Been here the last 4 times I've been in San Fran, always very good food and the server is always friendly and attentative.
Food and Service was good. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
I want to eat there every night.
Fabulous food, very friendly service members and so quiet, you can actually hear the other person talk.
Lunch was a little pricey but it was a generous portion so no real complaints. The waiter likely stopped by our table a few too many times but he was genuine enough in his desire to ensure we were OK
The service was very, very slow and not the most professional. Thankfully we were not in a hurry or would have left. The food was ok but overpriced for some items for what you received and disportionate for others. Won't go back. So many great places nearby, live and learn...
The food is consistently delicious with creative and fresh presentations of comfort food alongside more sophisticated offerings. Nice selection of vegetarian dishes as well! Service is wonderful and the setting - tables well spaced - is perfect for a business lunch or private conversation.
The bartender had a terrible attitude but we had a wonderful server. The food was average.
Lots of families with small children in the restaurant, likely from the attached Marriott. Wasn't an issue but changed the ambiance.
Each course fabulous. Beautiful, fun, and lovely restaurant. Will be going back for years.
Was very disappointed. Food was ok, but would rather go to somewhere with friendlier service.
Great food and very considerate staff!
Had a really good experience at Bluestem Brasserie. I ordered the farmers market vegetables and they were amazing! Veggies never tasted so good! It was a bowl with curried potatoes and lentils on the bottom, carrot, cabbage, and cauliflower. So yummy!
I think I’d return for lunch next time.
Why this place doesn't have a line going around the block, I just can not understand. The menu is simple, yet creative, and expertly prepared. The brunch cocktails are exquisite. The service is some of the best I have experienced in San Francisco (and that's saying a LOT!) I am feeling selfish and want Bluestem to remain my little secret for as long as possible. Love it!
Loved everything about it. Adam, the host, just the best. Jenna, the bartender, so genuinely caring. We liked it so much we bought gift certificates for our SF friends.
Third year I've gone back and it's always been very enjoyable. This past time had one of the best servers I've ever experienced, and them bringing out cookies for dessert as a thank you for returning was a great surprise. My only quibble would be the noise level, but it's not something that ruined my experience or anything. I'll be back!
Love this place.
Rude hosts - wouldn't seat us despite the fact we were on time, the entire party was there and tables were available. I'd been a regular until this experience. I will not be returning.
Food was REALLY SALTY. mushroom soup was almost inedible. I stopped eating it 1/4 of the way through. Then had the pork chop. It had a good smoky flavor but was also salty and greasy. Bartender was a jerk. Made terrible recommendations and copped an attitude when I didn’t like them. Not great.
Had lunch on a Sunday with my family. The restaurant was clean and the food was excellent. We had the fried chicken sandwich and it was delicious. The service was perfect. I highly recommend it.
Good food. Hotel like ambience that does not reflect the casual dining menu. Have some hit and miss drinks on the cocktail menu. Americana that does fine but doesn’t excel.
Burgers were just okay, nice place though!
Consistently good spot, one of my top picks for a nice, but not over-the-top business lunch
The service was extremely slow, wrong orders arrived, etc, but sometimes that just happens. Less forgivable part is that the entrees (steak frites and grilled fish and veg sides) arrived room temp to cool. $200 for 2, not a great service experience and a bad food experience.
Raw pork chops, steak nearly inedible.
Our meals were absolutely delicious and delightfully flavored with some great surprises. The maitred’ recommended the strawberry cake for our birthday dessert. It was heavenly. Finally our server was one of the best I have ever encountered. She was sensitive to preferences and allergies and made sure everything was just right. I was so pleased as I had never eaten at the restaurant and it was a truly memorable experience. Hoorah!
The pork chop entree was delicious. The pasta entree was very mediocre, quite tasteless. Portions are adequate, but not for hungry eaters. Ironically, dessert was very good, but much more generous of a proportion than the entrees. Overall impression: we will not rush back!!!
We thought the deviled egg sandwich was a little underwhelming. However the service was phenomenal.
Overall good. Sides came before entree and should have come with entree
While the food was OK, and our service was OK, the price for value was definitely NOT OK.
A stylish and delicious destination for lunch! The space is so well designed to allow privacy for business conversations or catching up with friends. The menu evolves seasonally, while favorites always remain available.
Never disappointed! Best brunch in SF
Food was tasty! Lots of options for vegans and vegetarians. The service was particularly slow. It took an hour to get our food. :(
