What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

Causwells is a much-needed brunch spot in the Marina, that works well any time of day. Especially since the burger is always on the menu.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

A terrific burger every time with a lovely relaxed ambiance..... The service was great -- and I see they have a new menu with yummy inventive options (tho I couldn't help myself and STILL had the burger)!

Food was very good but not brought to table really hot but warm only. I also came in person ahead of brunch to make sure birthday candle was put on dessert, but no candle or anything. I also asked for specific seat in person, but already someone else was seated there. This was 9:00 on Sat. morning, so host should have looked at notes. Restaurant just opened, and host who took my request in person said nothing about someone ahead of our party. Host and waiter should read request notes. Not a busy time.

The food and ambience were great as always. However, the service was a bit slow. This was my first time going for brunch, but I have been several times for dinner and always enjoy myself.

Causewells has the second best burger (that I have had so far) in San Francisco in my opinion. We order it every time we go. I really like the ambiance here too.

Very disappointing. We came here based on the reviews, but the food and service was mediocre. We went for brunch and ordered the deviled eggs with smoke trout. Sounds yummy, but the tiny sliver of trout that topped the deviled egg was not enough to lend any flavor to the dish. The other dish we ordered was the Market Vegie Hash. The dish was essentially a very large bowl of tater tots (on the mushy side) with a smattering of vegetables. I was so excited for the smoked cauliflower, but there were only two florets in the dish. The other vegies were also very spare as well. The location is great. I love Chestnut street and the ambiance is nice inside the restaurant. Unimpressed - would not go back.

The service was terrible we made a reservation and got there early to wait over an hour for our food. My fries were cold, food was just okay. They offered a comped dessert we then had to wait another 20 min for and we had to be at a show so we asked that they make it to go. The dessert was not good and they didn’t include utensils, we had to ask and wait again to get utensils to eat our mediocre to go dessert that was supposed to make up for the almost 2 hour wait for mediocre food. Very disappointing.

Causwells is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. It's small and cozy, and has a great vibe. Great for dates, families, and friends. Their food is delicious, especially their burger. In my opinion, they have the best burger in all of SF! They also have a great brunch, including a brunch version of their burger. Causwells is a must try!

Food was good and nice atmosphere but I had a view of the area where the servers pick up food and they were trying to figure out which burger went to which table. At least 3 people touched the 3 burger buns multiple time. One picked up the buns 3 times himself. Finally the flicked off the bacon and served them. Fortunately it wasn't mine.

I had the Americana Burger and it was okay, my wife had the french toast and it was practically burnt. The service was fast, but they really seem to be rushing people to increase table turnover. All in all this place was just okay, and not worth a second visit.

Read an Eater article about the burger. It was pretty average and the bun was soggy. Wouldn't come back, don't know if I'd trust Eater again either.

45 minute wait for stone cold eggs and mega attitude with service - shockingly bad. We were Told when checked in to empty restaurant for our 9:15 AM reservation that we could have table but only for an hour. We waited 45 minutes for our basic egg dishes which were so cold when they finally arrived they didn’t charge - but we couldn’t wait for hot food and left. Service was supercilious and focused elsewhere.
