I was surprised by the “dine-in” fee of $10 per person. This was not the SF health mandate tax, so what was it and why wasn’t it explained when the reservation was made?

We want for the truffle dinner. It was $480 all in for 2 people. $85 for 8oz of truffle and I was given much more like 4. I ordered truffle on my dessert and was not given any. Dinner took 3.5 hours. The ravioli was not cooked enough. Some dishes were excellent and some fell short. I think we would have been happy had we gotten the truffles we ordered or if it taken less time. Overall I don’t think we will return.

It was a treat to be back at Che Fico and they are on fire! The food was amazing - delicious, beautiful, and served with care. The wines were interesting and well paired. We can't wait to go back.

An incredible pop of celebrating the food of the Italian Jewish community with a modern spin. As always, the food was top shelf, service impeccable and a pleasure to be in the main dining room of Che Fico once again.

Outstanding prix fixe dinner - wonderfully conceived, outstandingly prepared. Attentive staff - chef made his rounds. Good when I ate there 2 years, even better now.

Glad to see them back in business. Amazing chicken, nostalgic Jewish grandma starters that made our table happy.

Don't understand if the dine in fee actually goes to the staff. Less crowded made it really pleasant.

We went to the 3rd pop up and it was fantastic all around! Great 3 course dinner with plenty of food, real creative with just the right seasoning and texture. The chef paid a humble visit to all tables. The service was professional, warm and on point. One if the best restaurants in SF! Love it!!

Was pretty overpriced for what we received. Our server never checked in on us. None of the food was seasoned properly. Like really no salt on anything. The dine in fee is also not a great business model.

We had a fantastic meal with the new “pop up” fixed price menu. The 2 pastas were really tasty and the starters were also delicious.

3 courses for $85 + dine in fee + SF taxes, just not worth it. Maybe if there was a second pasta course, it would seem more reasonable.

It seemed a bit overpriced for 3 dishes (pasta pop up). The space is absolutely gorgeous. Service for three dishes was over 2 hours, although the staff was wonderful. Just felt a bit spread out. I’d go again, but be open to a full menu instead.

Good for *social distancing* with your partner or family. Tables are far apart. Interesting wine list. Amazing tiramisu. Service was spotty/all or nothing. Pasta tasty but in my opinion not worth the price tag. Porchetta “for two” is realy for three or four if you’re ordering starters or sides.

Overall, lovely dining room. Not blown away by the food. Fine place for pizza and wine date. If you go soup to nuts it’s going to be spendy. Not something I’d wait hours to walk in or weeks for a reservation.

unknown to us we had one gluten intolerant and one lactose intolerant guest (from sweden!) and che fico was the perfect place. a wide range of delicious foods, a very tolerant server who was able to navigate between us and the kitchen, the cheese was all on the side and even questioned whether a little flour was added to the chicken broth. fantastic.

We received our appetizer 30 minutes after we were seated and waited another 30 minutes before flagging our server to see how our dinner was coming, then everything came at once. We had high hopes for this neighborhood restaurant, but won't be rushing back.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks, and delicious food. However, it is very expensive for what it is and the drinks are overpriced. The roasted chicken was delicious but prepared differently last night compared to the first time we visited and we liked it the first time more because it came with some bread stuffing. The sister restaurant is really fast as well!

The restaurant itself has a good, lively crowd and lovely decor. Put off by the hostess...she came by our table, after we sat for about 15 minutes-and before our waiter even came to take our order-to tell us we had to leave within 1 1/2 hour. That brought us to 1 hour and 15 left prior to ordering or getting any food. She said it in the most brusque-actually downright rude-manner. We were fine with having to eat within a certain amount of time-there would have been no need to say a thing. The woman hostessing should not be front of house! Our waiter was great. But we were definitely put off by the hostess-she spoiled the evening-and will make me consider returning. The food was great except the lasagna-it was overcooked-crunchy actually-and flavorless. I've made better. Skip it! Order the brussel sprout pizza and cauliflower sformatta. Delish!

We had a fantastic dinner. Ordered many courses to try and enjoy. The wine som, Dominic, was knowledgeable, very friendly and energetic. Our server however was rude, snobby and curt with us. He had 0 personality! When we asked for espresso after dinner he said “ We are an American restaurant serving Italian food. So no we don’t have espresso.”

Really special. Great menu, food that is exciting and different (don’t miss the cauliflaur sfromata, pineapple Chile pizza, Nero pasta). Sophisticated service, slightly slow in pieces. Too full for dessert but loved the rest of it.

I loved the triangoli vegetarian stuffed pasta, but to be honest, I was not wowed by the bolognese, it was barely saucy and had little flavor. Our pizza choices were more of a miss as well. Since the prices are so high, it was more disappointing to have a so-so pasta and one pizza in particular that was sloppy, soggy and not well balanced.
