My wife and I had been to Che Fico for a holiday party and this was our first time for a regular dining experience. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar but were able to be seated right away. We were warmly greeted and the process of checking our Covid card and ID was very efficient. We started with cocktails from the bar and they were all excellent. Our server was very friendly, thoroughly explained the menu and offered wine recommendations to pair with our meal. We ordered the pickled vegetables, a pizza, the lasagna verde, branzino and polenta. All of the dishes were excellent and it was just the right amount of food for a party of four. Our server stopped by the table several times just to check in on our meal and to ask if we needed anything else. Che Fico was a really nice dining experience and we look forward to returning soon.

I’m not sure what the fuss about this restaurant is about. $30 for a margarite pizza? Good, but not worth it. $160 for American wagyu steak? Good but not worth it .
The octopus was cool, not hot. But they took care of it.
The in-house speck was outstanding, but the portion, meh.
The wine list was outstanding. Loved it. But overpriced.

We have been going to Che Fico since it has opened, and always have had a wonderful meal & experience! But now after having been closed for COVID, the restaurant has come back more elevated than before. The new menu, service and ambience..........beyond exceptional! So great to always have a wonderful restaurant like this to fall back on when in need of an exquisite meal!

excellent service. appetizers were also excellent as well as the pizza. we got the Bolognese which was less than subpar - oily, unseasoned, and canned-meat taste.

they upsold their wine menu which was also subpar.

I was craving Pasta and Che Fico was highly recommended. The pasta was meh! The whole branzino was delish and the service was great.

It was very disappointing and wish I knew in advance there was a 10% charge for dining indoors. Note to Che Fico and OpenTable maybe you should let your patrons know when they book a reservation there will be a 10% charge for dining inside.

I know there is a class of people who don’t care about the price but for me this was damned expensive. Also, trying to say that the dishes are family style but then giving you a single portion, or worse half a dessert, only amplified the issue. Then you get the bill, they’ve already given themselves 10% of your bill as a kind of luxury tax so you’re left figuring out a gratuity on top of a gratuity they already took. I probably won’t be going back.

We have loved Che Fico from the beginning. Although only recently reopened and only Friday and Saturday, it is fantastic. Different menu with a few old favorites but the new fishes were great. Same great ambiance and wonderful service. Welcome back.

I have never had anything less than superb at Che Fico. The cocktails, food, service, and ambience are top notch. Everything is homemade with high quality ingredients. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

We sat at the service bar in front of the salami station. It was so fun to interact with the staff and watch all of the starters go by.

The staff was warm, attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere and interior is one of my favorites in all of SF.
Loved the warm lighting and wallpaper, the tile, the hanging herbs and hoshigaki! I want live here.

The cocktails were perfect. Loved that the wines by the glass included several selections from Sicily.

And the food was incredible. Perfectly crispy suppli with a decadent interior. The polpo with pork belly and potatoes was masterfully prepared.

We were so happy to share the green lasagna with duck ragu and the tagliatelle bolognese. The pizza crust was a dream! Perfect amount of bite, bubbles and elasticity. We loved it!

We didn’t need any dessert, but had to try the zabione and apple tart with pairings chosen by our server. So glad we made room for all of the hospitality that was on offer. Thank you for a beautiful and fun evening!

My wife and I went for our 5th anniversary because we’ve always loved their pizzas. Unfortunately we happened to go on the first night of their new limited menu, which has only 2 white pizzas - one covered in radicchio and one with Brussels sprouts. We asked if there was any way to make something else and we’re told no (even though they have a full pizza menu downstairs). Plus, with their new “10% dine-in charge” plus tax plus tip, a personal pizza is $42. I actually went to the bathroom to call other restaurants mid-meal. Sadly, it’s not worth it anymore.
