Food was wonderful. Everything that came out was wonderful and the staff were friendly and approachable. It was a little bit of a lighter meal in terms of portions, but I can't really complain with everything tasting so good :)

Came for Sunday lunch. Food was good. Free refills on non-alcoholic drinks. Only two beers on draft but both a good choice. Ambiance is nice and the wait staff friendly and accommodating. I would definitely come back for dinner.

The Commons Club lis ocated in the new Virgin Hotel . The Hotel was fabulous. The staff was excellent. The signature drinks, I would pass on and stick with your favorite classic. The steak was unfortunately overcooked. Seemed very high priced, so value for the meal was not there.

Nice place, very well decorated with a decent ambience, but what a stupid menu. I have eaten most cuisines in many fine restaurants all over the world, but hardly recognised anything on the menu. As an example, the ‘Fish & Chips’ was raw salmon with and apple cut into chips. WTF.

Our halibut was overcooked and the "terrine" was tiny and hard. I didn't really understand what it was meant to be like at all. The halibut tasted like it had been sitting for 10 mins prior to being brought to our table (not hot, crust on fish a bit chewy rather than crispy). The duck confit agnolotti was flawless, however. A wine we had was very expensive yet nothing to write home about ($50 for two glasses). The strachiatella app was nice, so kind of a mixed bag. I wish I had sent the halibut back but didn't want to cause a fuss then regretted not having done so, especially for the price. If it had been cooked less and brought immediately, it would have been very good, so that's a shame. I know they are just new so still "ironing out the kinks."

Food was pretty good! Menu was ok.

Service was unfortunately not knowledgeable about bar offerings and left us alone for very long stretches of time that we would have liked to order more food, drink or dessert.

Ambiance was overstated and didn’t feel very special.

We sat near a pillar small tables ave asked to move to a little larger area. It took awhile to get it approved! It’s new I get it... appetizers were good!

The rib eye steak was very thin and just average we expected more... the halibut was super thin slice and okay nothing spectacular for the price!

The deserts were really good - different but tasty!

Travel a lot and love eating out. I’m taking the time to write this review because this restaurant unfortunately did not meet my expectations. Started with seating. We were seated right beside the only other occupied table in the restaurant. The tables are extremely close to each other and it’s hard to have a conversation without feeling like the next table is part of it. Music is very loud and hard to have a conversation. The place does not have good acoustics. Oysters did not taste fresh and steak had no flavor. Restaurant wasn’t busy and my bill got switched with another table and my credit card got charged incorrectly. Extremely over priced due to the quality of the food and service provided. San Francisco is a big city with so many good restaurants I highly recommend to avoid this place if you looking for good food and good service.

Amazing! Got the Akaushi Ribeye and it was delicious, the steak was cooked perfectly and the potato puree was also really tasty. They gave us a complimentary Parker House Rolls and it was really good too. The servers are great and so is the hotel staff. They were all super helpful with a situation we had even though we weren't staying there. Would highly recommend!

Amazing food. Came here again after a month, and the food was on another level. Everything was great before, but with small changes, the food is now definitely on the level of at least one Michelin star restaurants.
Perfect service! The wine list is great!
