Last Chance to Dine out before the second SIP lockdown! Couldn't have choose a better placed. Searched for rooftop restaurants online, and thanks to all the great reviews I tried this place out for the first time. Had an awesome time! Great Ambiance and delicious food. Will definitely be back with more friends one day!

Great food and service. Getting in is a bit disorganized with Covid procedures plus not handling different arrival times of the party, but this was really a minor issue. and certainly wouldn't stop me from coming back or recommending this place (just hoping that feedback will be put to good use).

The cost is a bit high, but won't stop me from returning when the shutdown is over. There was a $75 per person minimum for dinner, a two hour time limit, and a requirement to order an entree. Again, not an issue for us but just want to let you know (and we stayed about three hours, but they weren't fully booked).

I had a weekend brunch and it was amazing. So I brought 12 people for Friendsgiving on 11/24/2020. of course 6 and 6 for the social distance and covid. Anyway. I was there 10 min earlier for my reservation for noon. I waited in front of the elevator ( wait to be seated) for a while and nobody there. I went to the bar and there's nobody. so I have to do "Hello, hello!!"? Someone came out and asked to wait, he will go get someone to seat us. Then till 12:15 nobody come to our table. no water. no menu. nothing. Again, I had to go to the bar and requested service. We spent almost 1000$ and the drinks took 30 mins. Brought wrong drinks two times. no silverware for food. Had to bring our cards to BAR to get charged. If we left without paying, nobody would know or pay attention. If it's crazy busy, sure. there are two tables for couples. But we are not that kind of people. I was embarrassed to bring my friends and why I have to do all the services for you guys. I don't work there. Never recommand to anybody and won't coming back.

This place was disappointing and I always account for issues due to Covid, but our experience was not acceptable for this price. The service was poor. The woman waitress was not polite while the man waiter seemed to hate life. After being extremely excited about trying this, we were left only to be let down. Food and drinks were mediocre, but service needs a full makeover. I would not recommend for the price. Note: do not recommend walking here from Union Square - dangerous area of city. Take an Uber. Save your money and go elsewhere for servers who care.

Chairmaine's is a lovely rooftop lounge. The staff is excellent. The only drawback is that menu options are quite limited. I had a salad, which was just mediocre. Additionally, the outside lounge chairs are not well-suited for dining.

I recommend only if your are wanting to pay for a rooftop view. Food was ok. Service was good. The location is in a bad side of town. Bunch of homeless and drug selling going on.

Was excited to try the Japanese Brunch special. Pretty mediocre and overpriced.
Expected spectacular view - not really the one worth visiting (unless you are bored at home and want to go at least somewhere which is still open during COVID).

We went to Charmaine’s to celebrate our 2 year anniversary on a Saturday evening. From the moment you walk in, it is just all one big wonderful experience. The ambiance was romantic and classy. The service was impeccable! My favorite starter was the potato waffles with brisket. Steak cooked to perfection for the entrees. All of the dishes had a great balance of textures and flavors. The cocktails were very unique. The Proper Cup and Mister Bigglesworth were my favorite. We were even given two glasses of champagne to cheers for our special day. Absolutely recommend coming here for any special occasion. You get your money’s worth for sure.

Should list 2 appetizer / 1 entree required per person on reservation. We had visited 1 week prior and were allowed 1 appetizer for the table. No consistency and rude service.

We love the cocktails, but will not be returning or recommending to anyone until post COVID times. They have not adjusted their menu to make food that is easy to eat at a low side table or increased the snack or dessert options to make it a better cocktail experience. Nobody is going to charmaines for a nice meal, you go for the drinks and eat if you are also hungry or want a snack/dessert.

Ordinarily I would not give a poor review to a restaurant trying to make it during COVID. Unfortunately our experience did not at all meet our expectations. First, the city view was amazing and I will give them credit for having nice fire tables at each spot with comfortable chairs. However, only a few spots had a table to eat on. Most had a knee-high side table. My expectation is for a $35-$50 plate, I shouldn’t have to eat it off my lap!

The service was so-so. We waited a long time for our drinks. We had finished our app before they arrived. The drink menu was limited to what was on hand, not what was advertised. The food was overpriced for the quality and portion size.

I stayed at the Proper Hotel and had dinner & drinks at Charmaines' - it was the last evening of indoor dining so we were so grateful to stay indoors - the service was impeccable, Chris the manager was so helpful and treated us so amazing. We tried a little of each dish and had an such a great time that evening. We even went back up for breakfast and so glad we did it was the most beautiful morning with sunshine and blue skies and and the best views of San Francisco- I can't wait to visit again. Thank you to everyone at Charmaine's & the Proper Hotel - love K 🌞

This was a very disappointing experience compared to prior visits. Every guest must order a minimum of two appetizers or one entre, without tables to eat at. Just stools without back support or tables to eat properly. The view and fire pits are not worth being forced to order all of that food, be uncomfortable eating it, and then the quality of the food/taste be quite disappointing. I expected much better from charmaine's.

The host made us feel uncomfortable telling us to keep quiet. It was only 6pm and when we were ordering he seemed annoyed and not friendly. Overall not the best experience for my friends 30th birthday. We were not advised ahead of time that our reservation was being moved from outside to inside, if we had known we would've cancelled because the only reason we booked here was for the outdoor lounge and view.
