Corridor Restaurant serves superb fine cuisine in San Francisco, focusing on global dishes in its warm and inviting eatery. Awarded 3 stars from the San Francisco Chronicle for the fun, playful and elegent presentation of every day fare, Corridor's menu is expansive and refined. Excellent starter options, such as the crispy falafel croquettes with pickled onion and tzatziki and the roasted carrot and citrus salad with curry vinaigrette, make for ideal appetizers. Corridor Restaurant’s house specialty entrees, such as the Maine style shrimp roll with avocado and Old Bay aioli, the meatloaf wellington with truffle jus and the fall vegetable pot pie with roasted shallot cream, are as comforting as they are inventive.

To accompany, a vast selection of draft beer and wine are available with a constantly rotating and changing menu.

Food was served promptly (we were attending a show later), but was mediocre. Risotto was soupy and meatballs very average. Service was good.

Food was pretty good - nothing incredible, and a bit on the pricey side considering portion size. About what you'd expect for a trendy upscale spot in this part of the city. 3 stars means "good" and this place definitely qualifies as "good," I'm glad we tried it.

We had a pre-Hamilton brunch at Corridor, based on a friends recommendation. I couldn’t have been happier. The food and drinks were great, the service was friendly and fast. It was a great experience.

I've been to Corridor many times. I enjoy the often seasonal food selections and its convenience to the Symphony, Jazz Center, etc. I enjoyed my meal, which included a seasonal corn and tomato salad, a lovely piece of fish with a delicious sauce and a delicious "butter cake" desert. My only problem was the portion size was skimpy, especially for the salad and fish. I'm no stranger to small portions and don't go for overflowing plates, but I left hungry. Service is great and I'd go back again and order more, which makes the value less, I'm afraid.

Corridor is a casual dining restaurant with not so casual prices. Maybe for San Francisco the prices are average, but when paying $20 to $35 for entrees I expect the ambiance to match the prices. That being said, the service was excellent & all six of us (ages 11 to 77) enjoyed our food.

We chose the Corridor as a pre-theater dining option. We knew nothing about it and were very pleased with the experience. The food was very good and the staff were fun and professional. We will return!

Creative menu - the Wedge Salad was good, but a bit heavy on the spice; décor is sterile, however. Parking with the construction on Van Ness is a challenge. But, otherwise a solid lunch spot.

The food was ok, but not as interesting as I'd expected and hoped. We were there for brunch, which is a set-price menu with some choices. The items in the bread basket that comes with the meal was all very sweet (we selected the savory accompaniments, but the breads themselves were all sweet). They weren't sweet as in pastries, they were just bread (a roll, cornbread, and another white bread) with too much sugar. Including some hearty whole grain options would have been very welcome. The breakfast sandwich we ordered was also on a very puffy, sweet white bun; we left half of it. Just too much sweet white bread! To top it off, the only dessert option was - you guessed it - sweet white beignet. They were ok., but the accompanying meringue was almost raw and the mango puree was incredibly SWEET!!! I think we would have enjoyed them more if we hadn't already OD'd on sweet white baked stuff.

The soft scrambled eggs tasted like they hadn't been seasoned at all; I had to request pepper, as I was offered nothing.

Went for lunch- place was pretty empty so we were surprised that the service was lackadaisical but the food was really good- especially for the price point. The salmon was perfectly cooked, the pot pie was large with great crust and the chicken sandwich was moist (and well fried!!) with another-too-hot sauce in the side.
Seems like a good pre-theater kind of place.

Food very good. Not a huge selection but all very interesting combinations. Asparagus risotto & chicken were both very good!! As was the Calamari appetizer.
Prices good for SF.! Wait staff exceptionally nice and on top of everything. Quite noisy after 5:15. We sat upstairs at s table for 2, across from each other. Side x side seating probably better for talking.

What a great addition to the restaurant scene near the Opera, Symphony Hall and Orpheum Theater. Our food was excellent and the staff attentive. We were on a tight timeline getting to Hamilton at 7pm and they accommodated us brilliantly. We will definitely be back.

This was a good time. Food was very good, service great! The only thing I would critize was the portion size squid ink pasta, 2 people had decided to share but it was just not big enough to split. It would have been great to have that pointed out when it was ordered.

Good place to grab a quick dinner before the theater. Entrees had a fun range of elevated comfort food. Note that even with a reservation you may be seated on ground level. Noise levels are VERY high; it was difficult to hear the server standing right next to me. Staff was quick and responsive to get us to our show on time.

My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner, pre-Hamilton. Overall, really impressed by the food and service. I had noted it was our anniversary when booking the rez, and we were greeted with lots of "happy anniversary" love from the staff, in addition to complimentary champagne before the meal and dessert at the end. Service was just great.

The food also didn't disappoint. We had the monkey bread (must order) and calamari misto to start, both of which were great. My wife had the duo of chicken, which had an amazing pea side, and I had the NY strip (flavorful if a little fatty). They also had a unique cocktail menu, and I appreciated the non-alcoholic beverage selection.

Great experience and would recommend, especially as a quick and flavorful pre-theater spot.

Making the reservation I let them know it was our anniversary and we needed to get to the 7 PM performance of Hamilton. Corridor was very responsive, wishing us a Happy at the check in and by both waiters, then bringing comp glasses of bubbly, plus an extra starter and dessert comped, wow! The food was very good. We had two apps, the yummy Monkey Bread, a must-get (trying to figure how to make it at home), and the Corn it was good but at $17 should have been more Tartare-y. Then the free Falafel Croquettes, which were also quite good. We split the Vegetable Pot Pie for the entree and scraped the cast iron pan clean, it was surprisingly rich. We split the Milk Cake for dessert though we were really full; an unexpected thick textured, almost tough cake, but very good and I'd recommend it. They also know how to make a good Vieux Carre (better than I had in New Orleans) so all the cocktails are probably first rate. Overall, a very good experience, we'd go back. The entire staff was wonderful throughout.

Perfect pre-show spot. It's conveniently located to the Orpheum, Davies and the Opera House and they are very sensitive to time constraints and making appropriate coursing recommendations to fit your timeline. Most importantly -- the food, drinks and service were impeccable. We shared many things (monkey bread, tuna crudo, beef tartare, bolognese) and loved them all. Don't skip the bolognese, but you definitely should share it; it's so rich. Will definitely be back here, show or not!

This is our 3rd visit, and unfortunately, we were disappointed with the experience. We made the reservation several months ago, but somehow we were seated at a small table in a back corner against the wall upstairs, apparently the tables in the more open areas were reserved for other parties. We came for the monkey bread, and unfortunately, due to some kitchen snafu, none was available that evening. I ordered a black ink Tagliarini with Dungeness Crab dish, it was extremely salty, mushy and heavy, and there was barely any recognizable crab meat. My husband ordered the roasted chicken, and it was quite dry. The pasta bolognese dishes were apparently OK according to our other dinner guests. This is definitely not the food quality and dining experience that we would find acceptable. Perhaps this was an off-night, I don't know, but I'm not sure if I will give the restaurant another opportunity.

So incredibly good! I haven’t visited Corridor in a couple of years, but it is just as great as I remember it (only now with the addition of hard alcohol!). We had the Crispy Chicken, the Halibut, and the Vanilla Butter Cake and devoured every delicious bite. Service was friendly and prompt and they got not just us, but everyone else that was visiting pre-Hamilton served, cleared, and paid in plenty of time to walk to the Orpheum. I can’t wait to have an excuse to go back!

Fantastic food & service! We arrived early after Hamilton and they assisted in getting us seated early, which we really appreciated as my mother-in-law required an ADA table. The food was wonderful, cleverly plated and something for everyone on the menu. We will be back to try their cocktails next time!

Has a feeling of being lost, the food is great and very tasty, nice service. The ambience was strange just felt it was lost on a building site and needs a sign and something to liven it up, table cloths or mats, candles ???

The table was a long bar-like affair which was not at all set up for a conversation with my companion- not what I expected. My pasta dish was very tasty but did not look appetizing when presented. The noise level was fairly high making conversation difficult. Will not return.

This as our fourth time eating there. If anything, the food has gotten even better. Service is outstanding+++. We shared three dishes, a calamari with some spices (very lightly fried, no coating), an asparagus risotto, and a halibut. Each one had distinctive flavor, not too bland, not too heavy. All were just excellent and they really have the sharing experience down to a science. New plates and all new silverware for each course. a few minutes wait between each course too. If I went back, I'd have a hard time not ordering the same things again. Bill, including a glass of wine each was $93, not bad for SF.

We sat upstairs and that area gets hot and doesn’t take advantage of the location and view. The decor looks modern and nice but feels cheap. It felt like eating in a cafeteria or mall. The service was great. Now to the food...my halibut tasted great but had portions that were cold. It was like it was heated up but not all the way. The veggie pot pies were good - nothing amazing. The burger was just a burger. Nothing was bad, just not great.
I wouldn’t go there again because there are too many other options nearby. They have to kick it up a notch in this city.

The only complaint I have is that it was really hot upstairs. I was sweating!
However, our waiter was Paco and he was kind and efficient. The food was delicious and the cocktails were really noteworthy. If I go to the symphony again I’ll eat here beforehand.

Friends and I have eaten here multiple times prior to concerts and music events around Civic Center. My only complaint is that the seating is very uncomfortable, especially the table chairs. Someone selected them only for looks since they are so ergonomically bad. The food and service have been consistently good.
