What Insiders Are Saying
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.
Quality food served in small setting restaurant with alot of Marina District, San Francisco "flavor"
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)!
Best burgers in town - Americana & Brunch burgers.
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.
Nice people, but over cooked greasy burgers and cold onion rings.
It was fine, and not much more than that. Everything was ordered but nothing exceptional.
This is our second year to come for New Years. Friendly atmosphere, always festive with balloons and confetti. Great wait staff and great food. Thank for another great evening.
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.
The beer, burgers, eggs, and hash were amazing. We sat outside with some heaters and watched all the people and yoga pants walk by. Very nice!
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.
Great food in a great location.
The tatertots are absolutely wonderful! The staff is very nice and helpful.
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.
Head a truly great lunch with friends. Food exceeded our expectations.
Love the brunch🤩
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!
Still among the best hamburgers in town. Perfectly cooked and great crispy onion rings.
The burger here might just be the best I’ve ever had!
This was our first time at Causwell's and we were very impressed! The food and wine were excellent as was the service. We'll definitely be back.
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.
Great weekend brunch. Homemade biscuits are a must w homemade preserves. Fresh & interesting egg dishes, vegetarian as well as old favorites. Lots of sharing plates that u might not want to share - all are delicious.
Service and food slipping. Ordered a bottle of wine which did not come until burgers, waited a good 20 minutes. Onion rings were not fresh and hot, like usual.
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.
HORRIFIC, absolutely horrific & insulting service. Embarrassed to have brought a friend. Will never return.
From now on, I will go here when I crave a cheeseburger.
A solid burger. Worth a 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.
Service was lacking. But the Americana Burger was to die for.
They really do have one of tge best burgers in town
Very accommodating staff and delicious burger 🍔
Blonde waitress bad attitude and the bread of the burger was aged
Great burgers, but poor service. The waitress was not friendly.
Burgers are phenomenal
Service was too fast.
This place is a hidden gem in the city! Came here for brunch and the food was really good. Mimosas were fabulous as well. I will definitely come back and bring my family and friends.
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.
Kind of a small restaurant, so feels a little cramped. Otherwise pretty fantastic.
Burger was not as pumped up as it was. Patty was pretty thin and well done :(
