Salumeria is a deli and larder that showcases a selection of Italian inspired house-made salumi and prosciutto with a Northern California sensibility.
It's urban chic. A great selection of wines. I just wish their menu had more choices.
Food was great. Our serve was useless. Was one of the last groups to get a resv, but couldn’t remember to bring simple things like a napkin, specific drink orders or come by to check on us. Worst service I have had here in 3 visits.
Fabulous food. We had 7-8 dishes and they were all delicious. The ambience is so nice. It’s a small restaurant but the layout and open ceilings make it feel intimate and yet lively. As a table of six we were all able to talk without yelling. It was nice and chill.
The “let us choose” menu is outstanding! Amazing selection of everything the menu has to offer. Excellent wine pairings with each course, too, for an extra $45. The service is friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. Casual setting with upscale food. Amazing!
We love this place. We go for special occasions, when people are visiting us, or just for a Friday date night. Highly recommended.
We liked it!
We loved the atmosphere, service and food was good!
We liked the appetizers a lot, while there was not much choice for the main course.
Also the list of Wine by the glass was quite limited, with few options from California.
But overall I think it really deserve a visit
Consistently great service and delicious, creative dishes. I've been here a few times over the past year -- a couple business dinners and one weekend outing with family. Each visit was fulfilling and enjoyable. The ambiance is great, service is great (very attentive staff), menu choices were great, flavors and freshness were great! We recently enjoyed the beet and citrus salad, summer squash with walnut romesco, halibut crudo, mushroom tortelloni, farro 'risotto', and chocolate pudding. We paired the main meal with a lovely Albariño. We were impressed with the subtle, but nice flavor combos in each dish. Central Kitchen is now on my go-to list for a predictably delish meal.
Thank you for taking care of the dessert and your quick response to our concern. In the end, i did not ingest any of it as my friend and I were fine the next morning.
Looking forward to our next visit. Kindly!
Amazing food and service. Pasta is delicious and same as flour and water. Highly recommend!
Really nice meal, great people/service. I’m a sucker for a hearth...
Fun night out with delicious food, yummy wine and a great server!
Amazing! The food was not only beautiful but very delicious! Definitely can’t go wrong coming here!
This is the typical upscale industrial restaurant. The ambiance is nice and unusual. The food is OK. It is rather complicated and rich, but not terrible. Service is very professional. The price is however really high. If this place was 1/2 the price it would be a great restaurant, but with these prices I really can't justify coming back.
Dreamy ambiance, amazing food, and great service. One of my favorites in SF!
I hadn’t been back to Central Kitchen in awhile, since it first opened. I was wowed - everything was incredible and you can’t beat the ambiance - kind of feels like you got out of the city to Sonoma for an evening!
Fantastic restaurant. 5 Star in all categories. Highly recommend it.
Another amazing meal!
Huge fan! Recommending to all my friends!
The duck blew us away!
Good friend was in town so we treated him - was fabulous food & overall experience. Got the Chef’s Choice menu for the table. Highly recommend!
Fun and casual. Salmon was a served a little cool. We liked the smoked eggplant conserva.
My favorite Italian restaurant in SF! We love Chef Thomas.
While the food was terrific, the portions were on the small size and our drinks were way too small for $12. The place was drafty and our food got cold quickly. I like the setting but it only works in warm weather. I wouldn't go back.
Great food and nice staff!
The food was delicious and the service excellent. We were told to order family style and for a party of five we found one dish not enough to share with all.
Everything was nice, food lovely, a bit cold and the music to loud to have a nice conversation
The wild mushroom tortellini was amazing and I will have dreams about it!
We came here for my daughter’s birthday. There was six of us with some picky eaters and a vegetarian. There was plenty to chose from and everything was delicious and devoured. Service was excellent.
We had the chef's selection prix fixe menu. Presentation was great, and the flavors were well-balanced and rich.
It was just about the right amount of food. If you opt for the prix fixe, get the wine pairing that they offer along with it - we regret not having done that.
There's a bar that's separate but shares common space with Central Kitchen - the bar gets pretty lively and makes talking more challenging as the night goes on.
Fantastic. Can’t wait to go again. This is a true farm-to-table experience without the pretense that can be found in so many others. Also prices felt less than many others in the same category! Brava🤗🤗🤗
Central Kitchen is always fantastic! A great place for a special occasion.
Had a great experience at Central Kitchen. The staff was incredible, and as we basically ordered the entire menu:
The Steak Tartare was excellent. Perfect mince, and the smoked egg yolk was a nice touch
Fry Bread with Green Onion Powder and Buratta was incredible.
We shared the whole roast chicken w/Calabrian chili, roasted lemon, and garlic - cooked to the platonic ideal
The pastas were, of course, excellent - we shared the strozzapreti w/braised duck and the pork angnolotti
But the star of the show, and I know this isn't what you are expecting, was the cauliflower. I have NO IDEA what they put in that sauce, but the bright lemon flavor against the sort of spicy sauce and the char on the cauliflower were just...magic.
Thanks for a great evening and a wonderful meal!
All of their sauces are amazing.
We hadn't been here in a couple of years and were very pleased to see the expanded menu take on some of the inspiration from the Mothership, Flour + Water. The staff were pleasant and informative and the food was top notch. It's on our regular rotation now.
Food was fabulous! Loved the shared plates! Definitely an enjoyable evening. A little hard to get servers attention - I think they were super busy but would avoid your eyes.Central Kitchen should taste their wine selections. We didn’t send it back but it was bad. We never knew there was bad wine in Sonoma. We would definitely go back.
The front of the house is a mess.
We arrived before our reservation, and were seated after our reservation. The main dishes came out 1 hour after we were seated. They forgot our drink order, and didn't offer water, which meant that food was sitting on the table for a bit so that we didn't have to eat with nothing to drink.
Now, to be positive, this is a gorgeous space and the food is incredible. Be prepared to share, as it's very rich. (Besides, it's family style). The chefs all know what they're doing.
The dress code is very casual -- a few hipsters but really just casual elegant with roughly a 25-35 average aged customer while we were there.
I'd say that if they could fix their service, it'll be a great restaurant, and I look forward to coming back after I hear that that's happened.
Again on the plus side, the staff took the late drink off of the check without mentioning it, which was the classy thing to do.
Really unfortunate about the service delays, though.
This was our first time dining here and it was excellent. Everything from the small plates like the bread and buratta to the pate plus the veggies were delicious. The duck and chicken were both incredibly flavorful and cooked perfectly. Loved the apertif cocktails. The service was excellent. We will definitely be back!
My go to place for a great meal at what is not (for San Francisco) exorbitant prices. Staff is great, food is very good.
We were a table of four who ordered the shared Chef’s Choice dishes with wine pairing. As sauv blanc and cabernet lovers, the wine choices (rose, lighter reds) were not our favourites so next time, I’d order my own wine, but the food was outstanding and we loved every minute of our experience. Will definitely recommend to others and would go back next time in SF for sure.
Most importantly, the service was exceptional! She was very thoughtful and professional that made my experience was the fullest! Which ended up to the perfection! Well thought out dishes and flavors were very well brought together
